We are seeing get sick at younger and younger ages in the healthcare field. Stresses start too early for kids these days and environmental toxins are rampant in our food, air, and water. Staring at screens all day while sitting in slouched positions wreaks havoc on the normal spinal curves that are meant to protect our body from the effects of gravity.

Birth is a wonderful experience, but it is baby’s first trauma. Regardless of style of delivery, the baby’s spine undergoes enormous stress. This stress can impede the signals between the brain and body and lead to symptoms such as inability to latch, colic, frequent infections, constipation and much more.
