The Gift of Health is here! From now until January 31st, we’re offering $47 exams at PWC. The coolest part about the $47 scans is that of it is being donated towards pediatric chiropractic research! We’ve partnered with the brilliant minds already started with some amazing research at New Zealand Chiropractic College, as well as the National Family Wellness Alliance. At our Epic Impact event in San Diego, $100,000 was already donated and Epic Pediatric offices across the country are committed to raising lots more!
If you yourself have been watching our page and still haven’t called in yet, now is your chance to get started for only a $47 donation to an amazing cause! If someone in your family still hasn’t started, let’s do this (we see you Dad )! If you know a neighbor, friend, or parent that needs us, let them know about the Gift of Health.
Current peeps, grab a stack of Gift of Health coupons at PWC and keep them with you...
‘Tis the season
We just finished the gauntlet that is “the holiday season," we rounded the corner on Thanksgiving and ran headstrong into the Christmas season. Schedules were packed full kiddo’s Christmas programs, office holiday parties are here, and for a lot of families some creative and crazy travel schedule to make sure you can fit in all of the events you had. Then it’s over in one fell swoop and we are staring at all of the “New Year, New You” posts.
Are you going to be a new you? Or is it time to give ourselves some grace, realize our year was filled with mistakes, not good enough moments and we still crushed it? I may have volunteered for a snack I forgot about at my kid's school party but I also remembered 900 other things I volunteered for. Also, note to self, no one likes frosting free, food dye free cookies at a class party so save your money and don't volunteer for cookies next year.
After 12 years of caring for sensory and spectrum kiddos, and about 20 years of constantly reading and learning everything there is to know about them, I can tell you that they really struggle with three main elements of life that all start with the letter C.
In turn, when the right forms of care are applied, the right protocols and methods used, these “3C’s” drastically improve, thus greatly increasing the child’s quality of life. And we all know that when the child gets better with these 3 elements, life for the whole family gets better!
This article is not one meant to spell out the entire scientific mechanisms behind sensory and spectrum disorders (that’s what the Perfect Storm workshop does), but to sum that all up what we know is that these kids are very much locked into and “stuck” in a state of Sustained Sympathetic Dominance (SDS). The sympathetic system is the “gas pedal” side of the Autonomic Nervous...
Tackling a tough, real topic with today’s chat — HOW and WHY an infant or toddler can already have #sensory issues, and why we are seeing #anxiety and even depression in kids as young as 6 or 7 years old in today’s world.
