There are a multitude of factors that impact children’s abilities to thrive in their daily lives.
In this episode, Rachel and Jessica run through a few of the main ones; nutrition, physical activity, sleep, stress, and primitive reflexes.
They share some useful advice for therapists and parents regarding how to help their children maximize benefits and minimize harm, one step at a time.
The overall theme is the importance of focusing on the body as a whole, and addressing underlying causes rather than just treating the symptoms. Remember, just because something is common, doesn’t mean it’s okay!
Rachel and Jessica also discuss what the ACE score is, and why it is valuable for everyone to see a therapist.
In order for a human to develop optimally, their foundations need to be strong, and after this episode you’ll have a clearer understanding of how to nurture the building blocks of the kiddos in your life!
