AND MOM, DAD, WE GOT TO HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF A REAL TALK HERE BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW IF YOU GUYS NOTICED, BUT KIDS ARE GETTING BACK TO SCHOOL THIS WEEK…
and a lot of the parents that we get to talk to each and every day in the practice here … I mean I know we all love our kids, but let’s be real. It’s an exciting time, it’s an exciting time to have them back in school, and have schedules, and routines restored, and that’s absolutely amazing. So to you guys, who made it through another summer, congratulations.
The conversation now, let’s be real, it’s going to shift. And the shift now in the conversation goes from, “What do we have to do to get to the place where the kids are back in school” to…
“WHAT DO WE HAVE TO DO TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY STAY IN SCHOOL”
Because we got them there, but keeping them there each and every day, is almost something that’s really difficult because they go back to this new environment.
New teachers, new kids in the class, new germs. Huge change in schedule, in air conditioned all the time, and a lot of the times what we’re going to see, is come to these places in times of the year where flu season, this season, that season, whatever it is, and kids just start dropping like flies. Going down for the count. Going down for the count, getting sick.
And when we look it, say, “Hey mom and dad, I know we love them so much, but it’s amazing when they’re in school”. We want to keep them there. It’s so much better. We just got through the summer. Let’s keep them there. So because of that, what a lot of what we like to talk about, with a lot of we call it chiropractic families. And by chiropractic families, I don’t mean families of chiropractors although obviously that’s the case, but for…
A LOT OF THE FAMILIES WHO HAVE COME INTO OUR PRACTICE, WHO HAVE CHOSEN TO USE CHIROPRACTIC TO NOT ONLY TO TREAT SYMPTOMS, WHICH IS ONE WAY, I MEAN THAT IS SOMETHING THAT PEOPLE DO MAKE DECISIONS FOR, BUT MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, USE IT TO CREATE AN ENVIRONMENT OF HEALTH.
The same way we would choose to eat right, we choose to exercise. Incorporating chiropractic into that because the brain controls and coordinates everything in the entire body, including the immune system. And by delivering pinpoints specific adjustments to correct the interference there. We’re able to see the immune system function better, but often times the parents begin to notice is you know what? This time of year, fall, my kiddo always used to get sick. Missed three or four days of school. I had to rearrange my whole schedule. Come home from work, everything like that. And even though other kids are sick this week, mine aren’t.
IT SEEMS AS THOUGH THEY HAVE MORE ENERGY, THEY’RE PAYING BETTER ATTENTION IN CLASS.
It seems as though they’re able to when they get home, go outside, run around, climb trees, play out in the yard, do all the different things, and they’re not being limited by their health. And let’s be real guys, what a blessing it is, to be able to see kids grow up and develop to be healthy.
BECAUSE THERE’S TWO ALTERNATIVES HERE, RIGHT?
What we get to see in our practice every day is adults who come in and they’re truly true to the paradigm, which is sick kids grow up to be sick adults. But more often than not, what we are clawing for, what we are itching for, and fighting for, is to create healthy kids who grow up to be healthy adults. Because that’s our future. Health. Staying in school that is all that’s going to come to our future.
Thank you guys so much for listening today.
