Find Help With Colic (naturally)

So, you've got some really bad stomach pain. You have a bit of a headache. Sleep well that is not working out too well because of the pain. Because of all that, you’re not in the best mood. And, to top it off, every time you try and let someone know, they are not listening or helping!

To be honest, I would cry, would you?

For many newborns, this is how they start life in the first few months. For many new parents, the frustration can be overwhelming.As a father of 3 little ones, Ive felt the most helpless when Ive failed to calm my children.

Colic

Years ago, colic was first thought to be merely indigestion. The most widely accepted definition of colic today is unexplainable and uncontrollable crying in babies from 0 to 3 months old, more than 3 hours a day, more than 3 days a week for 3 weeks or more, usually in the afternoon and evening hours.

Does this sound familiar in your household or someone you love?

In the conventional medicine world, things still haven’t progressed much further than this way of thinking. A quick search online shows that there isn’t much help, other than waiting it out or is there?

What is the Root Cause?

The cause of colic is usually multifactorial and the issues that I see in practice most are food sensitivities, digestive stress and nerve system irritation from the birthing process.

This list below of easy, natural methods have a great track record in helping babies and parents who are suffering with colic.

Chiropractic

Finally, we get to the item that simply cannot be missed. Pediatric chiropractic care is even more important that everything I listed above for colicky babies. Why?

Many think of chiropractic as a quick fix for pain or headaches. Ill never forget when I first understood that chiropractic is all about the nerve system; I made a promise to share that with everyone I met going forward.

I hope this article helped you and your family, especially if youre looking to stay away from medicine, help your little one get healthier naturally and to promote a lifetime of family wellness.
