Spinal Health and Car Travel

Written by Dr Jacqui Bunge (Chiropractor)

As we set off to our various holiday destinations we have considered the house, the dogs even the post that clutters our letterbox. One consideration we often neglect is our spinal health and that of our children's.
With the increase in the number of road traffic accidents we need to ensure our children are safe and secure in our cars, and therefore securely strapped into a car seat. Experts believe that 80-90% of car seats are NOT used/installed properly. Nationally, motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children ages 1-14 years.


Silence Ear Complaints

By Helena Crouse – excerpted from Vitalise magazine


Much like a mom, the ear never takes a breather, even continuing to hear while you're sleeping. The brain (thank goodness!) blocks out any sounds heard while dozing off, ensuring undisturbed rest. But rest and sleep will seem impossible if your little one is suffering from earache. And with high-pitched crying on the agenda, it's no consolation that at 115 decibels, a baby's cry is louder than a car hooter.


Immune Lay the Groundwork

A healthy, balanced foundation for your baby's immune system starts with breast-feeding, good nutrition, a non-toxic environment, and some physical fun. Remember: they're relying on you for the best start.

Children are constantly exposed to bugs and toxins, but this doesn't mean they'll necessarily fall ill. The key to a healthy child is a healthy immune system – it protects and forms natural defences to fight off disease.

Asthma Triggers

The most common triggers are:

  • Viruses
  • Exercise
  • Allergies to aero-allergens (allergens that we breath in the environment) eg. Pets, dust mites and smoke.

If asthma is not well controlled, it may flare up from time to time.
