Hey parents, Dr. Tony here, and I want to check in about something I bet a lot of you have figured out, but may have had to fight and battle to figure out, or it might have taken years and tens of thousands of dollars and all sorts of stress to figure out.
And some of you rockstar parents doing all you can to keep your kids healthy and happy, may not even know about the number one secret in pediatric healthcare.
This secret leads to a system that really holds our kids back from getting healthy and sends them down what we call the perfect storm of chronic illness and chronic stress.
So What IS the Secret??
The number one secret in pediatric healthcare that has been there for decades, is that you as a parent, actually have a choice! In most other aspects of our lives, we have so many choices. You can choose your home, clothes, school – you might have chosen your home for the school that you want your kids to go to. I could go on and on about how many choices we have, but when it comes to healthcare and the way that we either create health or create sickness, most of us don’t even know that we have a choice.
We were raised and still believe today, that pediatricians and medical doctors are the only choices we have for our kids. And that is just simply not true. There are actually three different options you have in healthcare for your kiddo. I’ll tell you what our family does – we choose all three!
The first option that 95% of people only know about and are stuck in simply because it’s the only choice they have ever had, is traditional medical. The majority of families are stuck going only to the pediatrician every time their child gets sick. Then from the pediatrician, it is just a sorting house to other medical professionals. If it’s an immune challenge, you go to the immunologist. If it’s a gut issue, you go to gastroenterologists. If it’s behavioral, emotional, neurological, you go to the neurologist.
They’re all the same. They look at symptoms, not at function. They look at medications that are going to stuff down the sickness, not at things that can actually activate and simulate the healing mechanisms that God put in everybody, especially our kids.
For our family, traditional medical is our last option, last resort, literally calling 911. I’m sitting on a farm, it’s winter and my nine-year-old daughter broke four metatarsals bones in her foot. Thank the Lord, and I mean that, that we have the best emergency urgent care medical system in the United States. We are wildly blessed with the medical system in that way, but it should be the option for emergency medicine and the last option for natural, regular health-boosting medicine.
The second option is natural health, or even better, nutritional health. One of our best friends and mentors, Dr. Josh Axe, is the best in the world at it. He doesn’t necessarily focus on pediatrics, but he’s the best in the world for you, moms and dads, to learn about natural health.
Neurologically Focused Healthcare
The third option is what we are committed to and what God has called us to bring to the world
and that is neurologically focused healthcare. The central or what’s known as the autonomic nervous system is the very first thing to develop in utero and run our health forever forward. Your nervous system controls your digestive system, immune system, and motor system/movement, which is so crucial to our kids. Your nervous system controls your hormones and chemicals like dopamine and serotonin, so it controls your emotions and focus. It controls your sleep and energy.
So the belief that the traditional medical system is the only option, has led us to the sickest generation of kids ever. We have more chronic illnesses of respiratory and immune challenges, more digestive illnesses, and more mental, social, and emotional illnesses than ever before. Then, during everything that happened over the last two years – kids who were already sick and stressed, became more stressed and struggled more than ever before.
So what do they need? Options and choices.
I’ve got a farm project I’m going to do later this week. I can fix nervous systems really well, I mean chronic restoration of the brain and every system, but I can’t fix anything on the farm. So I’m going to YouTube it. I’m going to go to YouTube and find a professional/expert who is going to break it down step by step for me and I bet I’ll figure it out, thanks to the internet. God gave us this thing called the internet too. It’s not always used for good, but you can use it for good to find the choices and options that you will not find inside your traditional Pediatrician’s office.
The Choice Is Yours
It’s up to you parents. I wish it wasn’t. We will work our entire lives to change the healthcare system and completely flip it upside down so that it starts neurological then goes nutritional and natural, saving medicine for emergencies only.
This isn’t an OR conversation, but for 15 years, our patients have been going to local pediatricians telling them their child with colic or chronic ear infections started getting adjusted and those issues went away! That ADHD, autism, sensory, seizures, spectrum, special needs got better and better after the adjustments started.
If a patient came to me and told me they did X and Y and their child got better, I would study, reach out and find the practitioner, the textbook, and the details of how that happened. Because all that matters is that child got healthy. Unfortunately, traditional medical wants to hang on to that singular choice way of thinking.
So for 15 years, our phone has not rung once from a pediatrician letting me know they have heard from 15 patients in the last year that chiropractic is working wonders for their child, and they want to learn more. They are in a state of protection.
Now this may seem like it’s an anti-medicine option, but it’s not at all. The medical system saved my son’s life and was amazing for Alaina’s broken foot. I thank God that they’re there, but I also know their limitations. They do not know how to heal and promote health, they are the sick and emergency care system and we need to reorder the entire healthcare system.
Which Form of Healthcare Should We Turn To?
We need to let all parents know that they have a choice. Traditional medical, natural, nutritional, and neurological – if this were a test, I would answer D, all of the above! What I highly recommend and will teach forever through this channel and PX Docs is exactly when to use which one for the betterment and health of your child.
When you have a team of practitioners and a Pediatric Experience Chiropractor to take care of your child’s nervous system – this will empower you not to live in fear, but teach you how to live the healthy life that God designed us to have.
Then you’ve got your nutritional, natural health, and integrated rock stars. We’ve got an amazing one here locally called Well-Rooted.
Then if you need them, you’ve got your pediatrician and/or medical doctor.
We’re gonna reshift and reorder healthcare so that the last number is the least often visited the doctor because the more you see your medical doctor, traditionally, the sicker you or your child are. The more you see your neurological natural doctor, traditionally, the healthier you are.
Any questions on any topic, condition, challenge, choice, please put that in the comments or shoot us a DM. We are here. PX Docs and the Dr. Tony page is a hundred percent for you. And the first thing that we want to teach, is that you have a choice. You’re not limited to one form of healthcare. And in fact, neurological and natural healthcare is going to tap into the way that God designed your child to be healthy and heal in the first place. That’s probably why it’s been kept secret because it works a whole lot better than traditional medical that’s been around for a whole lot longer. God bless, be well, reach out to someone who needs to hear this.
