Chronic Illness & The Chiropractic Approach
Chronic illness, the new normal for children.
Chronic illness has become the new normal for children. Yet much of what is being done to children— medications they receive like Tylenol and antibiotics, the bleach and hand sanitizer, processed foods they eat in school cafeterias and their own homes, and even time they spend trapped in a classroom or doing homework instead of playing outdoors—play a significant role in this growing epidemic.
I’m Dr. Matt Hammett, and I believe that children’s bodies naturally have the capacity to be healthy and heal when they have the tools to do so. In my new book, The Five Pillars of a Dynamic Health, I lay out the details of a plan that starts with the soil, using fresh foods and nature to heal you from the inside out and the outside in. Revealing the profound connections between food, nature, and children’s health, I explain how food is constantly changing kids’ bodies, brains, and even genes—for better or for worse.
