Do Kids Really “Grow Out Of” Things Like Colic, Reflux, and Constipation?



Parents, this information may leave you a bit frustrated or upset, but we need to address a problem that’s been going on for far too long. Conventional pediatricians have been telling parents that certain conditions are just a part of childhood and that their children will grow out of them. However, this is simply not the case.


If you have been up all night with your child who is experiencing colic, chronic constipation, reflux, or ear infection after ear infection, it’s essential to know that these issues will not simply go away on their own. If your child is struggling with tons of tantrums, meltdowns, developmental delays, and difficulty sleeping, don’t let anyone tell you that it’s just a phase.


We understand that as a parent, you know when something is wrong with your child. You may have even been told to wait it out, but we want to assure you that there is more going on, just as your gut tells you. The science behind these conditions is related to the function and development of the central and autonomic nervous system, an area that conventional pediatricians do not understand very well, but is the absolute specialty of Neurologically-Focused Pediatric Chiropractors. 


What Happens When There is Stress Built Up on the Nervous System?


Whether your child is two months old or fifteen years old, we have found that the neurology behind colic, sensory processing issues, autism, ADHD, anxiety, constipation, and chronic autoimmune challenges are virtually the same. 


It all comes down to the nervous system being subluxated, stressed, and stuck in what’s called sympathetic dominance, or imbalance.


Over time this stress and tension placed on the nervous system from early childhood stressors like prenatal distress, birth interventions, and trauma, and the exposure to toxins early in life leave the entire nervous system dysregulated and out of balance, leading to a condition called dysautonomia


This is why it’s so important to look for the root cause of their challenges instead of just labeling it and sending you and your child off to different specialists. Pediatric Chiropractors can help address the overactive and overstimulated sympathetic side of the nervous system in children with colic, sensory issues, and anxiety.  The medical system does not understand functional neurology as we do in our office. 


If you only chase symptoms, you’re not addressing the root cause. The nervous system controls everything from digestion to immune function, respiratory system, social-emotional regulation, and neurological development. By focusing on the nervous system first and foremost, you can get everything else figured out and functioning once again much easier. 


Challenges you’ve been told your children will “grow out of” like colic and chronic ear infections, can actually lead to chronic autoimmune challenges, allergies, and a compromised immune system that makes it easy to catch every cold that comes around, especially if each time they get sick they’re prescribed more and more antibiotics and other medications that further suppress gut-immune function. 


Additionally, behavioral issues like tantrums, meltdowns, and hyperactivity are often dismissed as typical childhood behaviors. But these behaviors can be symptoms of larger issues related to neurological development, and they can cause anxiety, hyperactivity, and emotional challenges in school and later in life.


The Perfect Storm Pathway


Regardless of where you are in this perfect storm pathway, you deserve to know what’s really going on with your child. Keep learning about their health, and consider using advanced technology like our INSiGHT Scans to measure and locate the stress and subluxation in the nervous system.


Pediatric chiropractors who specialize in making adjustments that release stress and lower sympathetic tone can help your child get out of the “storm” caused by these challenges. By getting the parasympathetic nervous system and vagus nerve activated and “online” once again, so much natural healing and health restoration can occur.  Even older children can benefit from this kind of care, as the nervous system remains plastic and can be changed even after years of stress.


Our office is Neurologically-Focused and uniquely equipped to address the common themes and threads behind all of these challenges. We provide drug-free action steps that can help your child and your family.


If you or someone you know has been told to simply wait and see, please share this information and help spread the truth about the impact that Neurologically-Focused Chiropractic Care can have on your family’s life. 

We are here to help you restore hope, find answers, and take action for the health and well-being of your child.
