Kids health, huh. Ask any school teacher and they will tell you; our children are not healthy at all. Asthma, obesity, diabetes, ADD/ADHD, allergies, autism and epilepsy numbers are increasing at an alarming rate. Parents, teachers, and kids alike are frustrated with the ineffectiveness of prescription drugs for these chronic conditions.
Most health-related problems in children stem from food or environmental allergies and can be easily treated.
Kids Health and ADHD
More than one million American children take Ritalin regularly to help them with Attention Deficit Disorder, an increase of two and a half times since 1990. Do we have a miracle cure—or over-medicated kids?” (Newsweek, March 18, 1996, cover story) “ADHD has become America's No. 1 childhood psychiatric disorder.”
Most parents feel that their children become zombies or robots when they are on Ritalin. It’s upsetting for parents and even worse for the children. In addition, there are NO studies on the dangers of long-term use of Ritalin.
On average, there are 1 to 3 children who have ADHD in every classroom of thirty students.
ADHD children have a rate of emotional development that is 30% slower than their non-ADD peers.
65% of children with ADHD have problems with defiance, non-compliance and other problems with authority figures, including verbal hostility and temper tantrums.
The increase in the number of prescriptions doctors write for treating ADHD is staggering. The number of prescriptions written for methylphenidate has increased by a factor of five since 1991.
About 80 percent of the 11 million prescriptions doctors write for that medication each year treat childhood ADHD. In addition, production of Adderall and Dexedrine, also used to treat ADHD, has risen 2,000 percent in nine years.

There is no need for children to be placed on expensive, mind-altering drugs to “treat” ADHD.
Kids health is easy. There are many non-invasive holistic alternatives that have proven to completely eliminate ADHD in children. One of the most effective treatments is available at Between Heaven and Earth wellness center is
, Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques. Most of the time, ADHD is caused by an imbalance in the body stemming from one or several food or environmental intolerances.

We have also found that overall development mentally and physically is greatly assisted with our nutritional supplement program specifically designed for growing children.

Nutrition and Kids Health
Nutrition is the most overlooked problem in your kids health and development. Fast food and lack of supervision in creating healthy eating habits has created a situation that will keep your children from living the life they deserve.
More children are diagnosed with diabetes, obesity, learning disorders, depression and more, and much can be linked back to the foods they eat and more so to the foods they don't eat.
The most important thing that your child should eat are fruits and vegetables. These whole foods have all the nutrients for healthy living and proper child development.

More than 500,000 children suffer from autism, with 40,000 new cases diagnosed every year. The disease was unknown until 1943, when it was identified and diagnosed among eleven children born after thimerosal was first added to baby vaccines in 1931.
In addition, NAET can be used to assist with other health conditions brought on by Autism such as constipation or leaky gut syndrome.
For the severely Autistic child a surrogate can be used to facilitate the treatments whereby, so long as the surrogate is touching the skin of the Autistic child, the treatment, whether it be NAET, EFT, BodyTalk, Acutonics or Bars, can be performed on the surrogate and the child with Autism will be effectively treated.
Children and Obesity
Between 16 and 33 percent of children and adolescents are obese. Unhealthy weight gain due to poor diet, and lack of exercise is responsible for over 300,000 deaths each year. The annual cost to society for obesity is estimated at nearly $100 billion.
In a Russian study of obese children it was found that regular Acupuncture treatments resulted in the normalization of blood and serum levels, decrease of overall body mass and fatty tissue content, and increased exercise performance abilities.
In other studies conclusive evidence was offered to show needling of auricular points helped to lower the appetite, increase satiety with less food, as well as lower insulin and lipid levels.
A balanced system also provides more circulation of blood and nutrients to the muscles, bones, and tissues so that an individual can exercise longer, thus burning more stored fat without becoming tired or light headed which can be discouraging factors when beginning an exercise program.
There are many different causes for obesity in both children and adults and our doctors work extensively with the patient to determine the cause of the excess weight in order to come up with a specific treatment plan.
It may be emotionally driven, an addiction, or a physical problem with one of the organs. We have many different ways to treat each in a way that is positive and effective for the patient.
Our doctors also have extensive training in herbal therapies and can help with a healthy dietary plan.

We know that your child will thrive rather than survive when they are balanced from the inside out, when they get the right foods and are able to assimilate them properly into their diets. Exercise is also important. We find that when children feel better and eat better, they exercise more, period. Kids health is a balance and must be established and continued for your kids future so they can make a difference.
