PLANTING SEEDS TO GROW HEALTHY KIDS

 

Just as planting a garden requires fertile soil, quality seeds, plenty of sunshine and water, planting seeds to grow healthy kids requires specific actions.

With a dizzying amount of advice dispensed over the Internet, through the TV and by well-meaning friends and family members, it’s not always easy to know what advice to follow. Consider the following for growing healthy kids — naturally, of course!

Make Smart Dietary Decisions

From frozen foods filled with chemical ingredients to fast food dietary disasters, it’s not always easy fueling kids with healthy edibles. Here are some foods to consider including in your child’s diet:

  • Low-fat dairy products
  • Poultry
  • Fish (choose fish that’s low in mercury)
  • Whole grain breads and cereals
  • Fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Healthy monosaturated fats (in moderation) such as extra virgin olive oil

As childhood obesity is a growing problem, remember to control portions and offer healthy snacks to fight hunger between meals. Another way to curb the calories is by opting for water versus juice or [soda]. Flav[o]r it with lemons or limes.

The Sleep Your Child Needs

The amount of sleep your child needs varies depending on age. Too little sleep can affect mood, school performance and overall health. Chronic sleep deprivation may even result in depression. It’s a good idea to set a regular bedtime routine for your child. These can include bath time and story reading.

Encourage older kids to turn off electronics well in advance of bedtime and read instead. Those high-tech gizmos and gadgets, from notebooks to smart phones, can wreak havoc on your teen’s sleep. Many studies link the use of electronics to later bedtimes and less shut-eye.

Why Exercise Is Essential

Though high-tech temptations abound, sidelining kids from outdoor activity, regular, brisk exercise helps kids to have healthier bodies and minds, too. Exercise also helps children get better sleep and fight stress easier. Though participation in a team sport is a great way for kids to get regular exercise, they can also get fit by walking the family dog, playing an outdoor game, or taking a bike ride.

Boost Health Naturally

Just as your kids brush their teeth to enjoy better oral health and a brighter smile, regular chiropractic care may help your child enjoy better health. Why? Because kids who have a healthier nervous system that’s free from interference may also benefit from a stronger immune system.

About Sandstone

Providing state-of-the-art chiropractic care in a warm and naturalistic surrounding

sandstone-42Comfortable amenities in a relaxing atmosphere!

When designing our practices, great detail is taken when choosing all aspects, from the name of the practice to the color schemes, to create a warm and inviting place for patients to visit. We really appreciate when our patients say that “walking into our offices makes them feel like they are walking into their own homes.” The name Sandstone was chosen because of the following description and meaning behind the word sandstone:

 

 

 

 

Sandstone is a stone of creativity. It helps to build and strengthen the cohesiveness and solidarity within relationships. Encourages truth and promotes clarity in thought and sight. Sandstone balances one’s reality and facilitates ease of movement and change. It dispels abrasiveness of character and promotes loving acceptance of humanity. It discourages bad tempers and general grouchiness.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is to provide the best possible care recommendations, and then allow the patient to choose the type of care they wish to receive. We hope to create lasting relationships with patients who are committed to regaining their health, and who allow us to participate in their full recovery. The committed patients who listen and take action on our recommendations get the best results. Sometimes patients don’t realize that their lifestyles contribute to many of their health problems, so we ask our patients to be pro-active in their care.

We are cognizant of our patients’ busy schedules and strive to eliminate the hassles of lengthy doctor’s visits, while maintaining the level and quality of care our patients have come to expect.

Chiropractic Oath

I do hereby affirm, before God and these assembled witnesses, that I will keep this oath and life commitment: to hold in esteem and respect those who taught me this chiropractic healing art; to follow the methods of treatment, which according to my ability and judgement, I consider for the highest benefit of my patients; to abstain from whatever is deleterious and unethical; and to stand ready at all times to serve my fellow man without distinction of race, creed, or color. With purity, I will pass my life and practice my art. I will at all times consider the patients under my care to be of supreme importance. I will not spare myself in providing my patients the care I have been taught to give by my alma mater. I will keep inviolate all things revealed to me as a physician. While I continue to faithfully keep this oath, may it be granted to me to enjoy life and the practice of the chiropractic healing art, respected by all people at all times.
