From tummy aches to hives, nail biting and skin picking, and shakiness to restless sleep, anxiety may manifest in many different physical ailments or symptoms. In our practice, I see anxiety come out as anger, impatience, and irritability, as well as crying and withdrawal.
In our current climate, it is a hard concern to avoid, particularly in our young people. The pressure put on our children in their school environment, to be quiet as parents work from home, and to hear the constant slurry of who’s right and who’s wrong has many a parent calling our office, reaching for support. The high levels of emotional toxicity are taking their toll and our children are paying the price.
Toxins testing as top issues of concern for children in our office include industrial and environmental toxins and parasites. Consider how full each child’s toxin bucket is getting, and without clean air and water (link to distilled post there), or a safe way to process out their emotions, anxiety easily settles in as their system becomes more and more dis-regulated.
The Toxicity Tower
After 25 years in the holistic health industry, I’ve discovered emotional toxicity as a key problem to maintaining health. Our past traumas, whether personal and inherited, end up carried on our shoulders and in our subconscious. In this space they take up energy that could otherwise be used for healing and it keeps our physical health on the spin cycle.
With radioactive elements being such a critical problem with our drinking water (even “filtered”), and with the hydration habit that is imperative for survival, we unknowingly keep ourselves in this cycle, which holds up our healing.
With the high dose of daily chemicals we get from our food, water, air, and products we put into our bodies and on our skin, it is difficult to get outside the perpetual state of toxicity.
Metal toxicity creeps into our bodies via medications, air and water pollution, vaccines, food prep, dental work, body care products, and more.
Once our mitochondria (or energy) is depleted enough due to toxicity, the opportunistic bugs that live in our microbiome take advantage of this constant feeding tube. These toxins (or “foods”) become feeders, creating unhealthy levels of viruses, fungi, bacteria, and/or parasites (pathogens) in the body.
Last but not least, food — no matter what it is — can then become a problem. You never had food allergies, now you’re sensitive to everything you eat. Your body is under such levels of inflammation that leaky gut becomes the way of life.
Fortunately you can start at the bottom and work with foods to begin changing the way you feel. Eliminating foods alone won’t make a lasting difference unless you’re also chipping away at the toxicity tower from the top down.
How We Address Emotional and Mental Health in Kids
We use modalities such as Nutrition Response Testing, and PSYCH-K® to bring balance back to the body and mind. Muscle testing with an experienced practitioner is a relaxed and non-invasive (even fun!) way of finding root cause solutions for children. There are no needles, and we do our best to make certain that the children who experience our care feel listened to and comfortable.
What I love about the results we get, is that not only can our findings be handled with supplementation, the added bonus of emotional work, lifestyle modifications, and food upgrades will more quickly bring about lasting transformation of your child’s health. When toxicity is addressed based upon what’s specifically testing with the child, we have a bio-individual way of creating a subtle daily detox program to fit your child’s needs.
Here are three examples of children who have come to us with mental and emotional health concerns and have seen improvement through their programs.
Case Study 1
We began seeing this girl at age 8 for stomach aches, worries, and skin rashes. She is now 12.
Her top areas of concern with testing were emotional stress, a Lyme co-infection, chemical toxicity, and parasites.
With gentle chemical detox, parasite work, and emotional support, her stomach aches and rashes have gone away, and her worries have decreased.
“Since our daughter has been on ME Support (a Cellcore supplement), we’ve noticed her mood has been up. She used to have very low, lows where she would shutdown completely and sit in her room and just sulk. She had very little motivation to do anything. She also would get stomach aches a lot which I think also contributed to her mood and lack of motivation. We would have a hard time getting her to do anything. Since she’s been taking MES, she has been much more pleasant to be around. She’s generally in a better mood and when she is feeling down, she snaps out of it so much quicker than before. Her stomach aches are fewer and farther in between. She’s really been a whole new person and we see the light at the end of a very long dark tunnel.”
Case Study 2
This girl started on a program at age 4 for general nutrition support and anxiety. The main concerns upon starting with us were allergic reactions, petechiae with exercise/movement, nosebleeds, quick to (over)react, and a concussion at age 5. Anxiety would show up in her emotions going from 0-60.
She is now 13 and we have seen her through Lyme co-infections, mold, parasites, fevers, a concussion, chicken pox, and scarlet fever.
Top priorities upon testing were Lyme co-infections, parasites, mycotoxins, and emotional stress.
Case Study 3
This boy started on a program at birth for general nutrition support. As he grew, the main concerns mom had about him were his nonstop movement, horrible sleeping, and paranoia.
He is now 4 and we have seen him through mold, parasite cleansing, emotional release work, and food allergies.
After beginning his program, mom noticed he is “not as paranoid, his sleep has improved,
and he has a better sense of touching back to earth, which only previously happened when he was nursing.”
