How To Get Your Kids Off Meds

Are you tired of your child’s constant medications?
Would you like to leave aside the unwanted side effects?
Or perhaps you simply want a more nutritional approach to healing?

If so, you are not alone.

Thousands of parents have gone before you, looking for those same benefits, and have found them. Others are just starting this journey as you might be.

The Role of Medicine

In today’s culture, medicine has taken on a prominent role in most people’s understanding of health care. Medicines can help your child manage their current symptoms or illness, and even provide some quick relief.

There is a time and a place when medicines are really needed, and we’re thankful for the science behind them. But I believe that all too often, we are quick to punt to medicine intervention rather than pursuing some more nutritional and very effective alternatives.

The Drawbacks Of Medicine

Medicines do not help nourish the cells in your child’s body, and therefore, are unable to promote long-term healing. They are not meant to build the immune system and cannot take the place of the crucial nutrients our bodies need to grow and become strong.

All medicines also come with side effects (as you may well know). These are the byproducts of giving the body a foreign chemical substance–something outside of nature. There will always be side effects with medication.

1 out of 4 kids today are on a regularly prescribed pharmaceutical drug.

For every prescription drug, people are taking–on average–one other medication to combat side effects.

Three Necessary Steps

We believe that when you give your body the nutrients it needs, it will seize the opportunity to heal itself.  Children’s bodies, especially, tend to respond much more quickly to positive nutritional changes.

  1. Consume a healthy diet and avoid any offending foods.
  2. Use smart supplementation to address nutrient deficiencies and promote healing.
  3. Check and adjust as you go along.
