Every child’s capacity to manage stress before physical or emotional issues arise is different… and it largely depends on ONE thing: The health of their NERVOUS SYSTEM.
Imagine each child carries a bucket 🪣that can be filled with stressors – from home, school, social situations, expectations, etc. A child with a poor-functioning nervous system has a narrow, shallow bucket that can’t hold much stress without health issues popping up. A child with a well-functioning nervous system has a wide, deep bucket that can carry a lot of stress without unwanted health concerns arising.
Some outward signs of a child whose stress bucket is small and overflowing include INCREASED:
An overly stressed nervous system is stuck in fight-or-flight mode💥and has disconnects in neural pathways between the brain and body. A brain and body that can not properly send and receive messages leads to an outward display of behavioral, emotional, or physical challenges.
Life will always be full of stress. Since you can't avoid stress the best way to help your child ADPAT to stress and changing environments is to make sure their “stress bucket” is deep and wide.
How do you enlarge a child’s stress bucket?🪣 With regular neurologically focused chiropractic adjustments that REMOVE nerve interference and restore a sense of CALM and BALANCE to the autonomic nervous system. This allows a child to switch from “fight or flight” mode to “rest and digest” mode so they can better handle all the transitions that fall 🍂 and a new school year brings.
