Debra McIntyre ND, of Vitality Project, shares her best advice for integrative health and children.
Can Integrative Health techniques help children, too?
The situation regarding children’s health in the U.S. is grim. (Hang with me, there’s good news at the end.)
In 2005, the NIH (National Institute of Health) stated that this generation of children is predicted to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents.
A 2009 study by the Environmental Working Group found that the average baby in the U.S. has over 200 measurable toxins in their blood at birth — plastics, pesticides, flame retardants, heavy metals and others. No wonder our children struggle to be healthy without medications!
An integrative approach addresses these underlying causes of poor health. The good news? Because children build new cells so quickly as they grow, they typically respond beautifully to nutritional and detoxification programs!
