What is the Perfect Storm

Getting out of the Perfect Storm!!

Put simply, it is an algorithm.  Not a single cause, not just a vaccine or nutritional problem….an algorithm.

Our children live in a world that is very different than the world that most of us grew up in.  There are stresses that they face that we never has to face.

They are facing massive levels of CHEMICAL, PHYSICAL and EMOTIONAL stress on a scale that mankind has never faced before.  this has led to 1 in 5 children being diagnosed with a mental illness and an autism rate that has been lowered now to 1 in 45 (per Autism Speaks).

In this article, I hope to give parents of these children a more clear path of how they could get their kids “out” of that storm.

These kiddos encompass the stuff we see everyday, whether in your child’s classroom or at soccer practice. We see kids with significant behavior, focus, and sensory processing disorders.

We see countless kids with severe allergies and asthma that are so bad, leaving home without their inhaler and epi-pen is not a perceivable option anymore.

And for the “less severe” kiddos, we see kids all over our community who are just constantly sick. Unfortunately, they are easy to spot.

They look tired and worn out with bags under their eyes and a tissue under their nose at all times. They look stressed and almost scared and anxious at any little change in schedule or environment.


What is Causing the Perfect Storm?

It’s not a bad deck of cards, it’s not genetics, even though many people would like you to believe that it is.

It’s what we call the Three T’s: Thoughts, Traumas and Toxins.  And most importantly, our kids nervous systems are so stressed and overwhelmed by this, that they lose their ability to ADAPT and overcome these 3Ts.

With Pediatric Chiropractic, we take a vastly different approach, to the same goal. We focus on building health “from within” as we call it, versus just trying to employ more “dodge ball” type strategies (avoiding germs and illness, which are everywhere!).

The goal of our care for “perfect storm” kids is to first start on the “inside” by strengthening the health of their most important system – the Central (Autonomic) Nervous System. Then, as the brain and nervous system regain their health and function, it strengthens the other key systems of the body that these kiddos struggle with: the Immune System, Digestive System, Respiratory System, and Endocrine System.

Most of the “perfect storm” kids we see also suffer mightily with allergies, respiratory infection and breathing issues like asthma, as well as GI problems like constipation and indigestion. The key to healing all of these systems is to start first with the main “hard drive” of the body – the Central Nervous System.

The Way Out

So the way to get your child out of the “perfect storm” he or she may have been stuck in for years, is to simply reverse the course:

We are the only profession that has this focus, and thus has the training and technology to analyze and detect any and all areas of interference to the health and function of this critically important system.

Chiropractic, as done in offices like ours, is not the chiropractic of old. Today we offer cutting-edge technology and diagnostic testing no different than you would get by seeing a specialist in any other element of health care.

It’s quite likely that multiple factors added up over a course of time to cause your child to be sick and suffering. In turn, it’s going to take multiple things applied over a course of time to get your child healthy and well again. It’s not easy, but it is possible.

Just please be sure to include giving Pediatric Chiropractic a chance to be one of those important things to get your child well. Especially if they suffered birth trauma of any sort (forceps, vacuum, C-section) early on, it’s likely that chiropractic can help them immensely.

I understand I’m partial, it’s what I do for a living. But I’m also experienced, and from that experience I can tell you that in thousands of cases we’ve been able to safely and effectively help, it’s been the single most important thing a family has done to get their child “out” of that storm.

Some parents just won’t give us a chance to help. But those that do, often never leave us because the results are so profound and life-changing for their child and your family. If you’re reading this, and your child is sick and suffering, I hope you’ll give us a chance.

The best way to get the whole story is to make sure to attend the Perfect Storm Workshop, you can register for our next workshop at
