A Healthy Childhood
These problems just like other medical disorders, firstly require a medical examination and diagnostics aims at finding their causes. The treatment, in addition to medications, may need to focus on improvement of a child’s immune system, replenishing vitamin and mineral deficiencies (Vitamin D3, iron, zinc) or a change of diet. Such as an approach requires the child giving up certain foods and replacing them with others, resulting in a balanced elimination diet.
Sometimes a change in a family’s lifestyle is necessary. Parents play a key role in limiting excess and unnecessary stimulation (such as stress, TV, computer games), calming and focusing a child’s emotions and introducing proper sleep hygiene. Psycho-neuro-immuno-endocrinology teaches us that freedom from chronic and unproductive stimulation can lead to great improvements in health and lets children be children disease-free.
In short, childhood needs loving knowledge, and in the distance, a doctor.
