Natural Healing Through Specific Nutrition

         Children and Nutritional Muscle Testing


Small children cannot talk. They cannot tell you what is wrong. How many times has Mom and Dad had a fussy, crying baby and did not know what was wrong or what to do about it. How many times has baby been fussy and difficult and actually did have something physically wrong, that mom and dad thought was just unacceptable behavior. Just how valuable would it be to know if it was gas or bowel problems for instance, as opposed to teething, as opposed to a headache or some other pain. How about why they have that rash or runny nose? How valuable would it be to know exactly what to do that would work to make them better? How about the value of being able to take care of that problem without putting drugs or toxins into your innocent one’s little body.

Cause and Effect Nutritional Muscle Testing has great value where children are concerned. With this technique it is possible to determine what the malfunction in the body is, and what the child needs in order to handle it. All this with no words required. As a dad, I can remember more than one time when I was taking care of a child in the middle of the night who was not well. I would test them, give them the correct herbal drops that would allow them to sleep and be well and then say to my wife, “ What do other people do?” I guess I’m very lucky in that respect. I just can’t imagine how horrible it would be to see my little guys suffering, and feeling like there was nothing I could do to help them except give them drugs.

People ask me “ How young do you treat children?” My answer is always “Negative 9 months”. Expectant mothers especially need good nutrition. Pre-natal vitamins full of synthetic vitamins and questionable mineral forms just do not fill the bill. Each mother is different and has different requirements and since Mom’s deficiencies may show up in the child, it is vital that they are addressed during the child’s formative stages. Once born, the mother’s nutrients are still of utmost priority as the child is breastfeeding and growing. During this period a child’s health problems may be addressed in two ways - supplying the exact nutritional supplementation to Mom that transfers to the child via breast milk or giving herbal drops in diluted form to the baby. My second child was given drops within a few days after he was born which allowed him to digest his milk better with less fuss.

As the child grows and encounters health challenges; in addition to a whole line of herbal drops, there are chewable supplements and homeopathic pellets that may be utilized as needed to take care of the various aches, pains and childhood maladies that might arise. Cause and Effect Nutritional Muscle testing has proven effective for a whole variety of childhood conditions including allergies, asthma, hyperactivity and focus problems, skin conditions, eye problems, sniffles, runny nose, tummy aches, appetite problems and even bed wetting.

During adolescence the child develops his or her basic form that they will carry for the rest of their life. It is especially important that growing teens have the vital nutrition necessary for their hormones and structural development. For instance, should a young girl’s sex hormones be lacking during this growth stage of life, the body having relied on only growth hormones, will not have the feminine shape she might otherwise have received. She will generally be taller and broader to some degree with larger feet, hands and face bone structure. It’s not like you can then, later in life, supply the necessary nutrients and reverse the form. Nutritional Muscle Testing with clinically designed nutrition also does wonders for acne, menstrual problems and headaches and other common teenage maladies.

Children start small and become big. The difference between the small and the big consists of what you put in them. If what you put in them is lacking, their structural integrity, strength, health and form will be lacking. If what you put in them is whole and complete they will turn out to be strong, healthy, attractive adults. It’s one more burden placed on us already over-burdened parents; but one that is not necessarily all that difficult to bear. Especially when there are wonderful techniques such as Cause and Effect Nutritional Muscle Testing around to help guide you.
