Scoliosis Pain Natural Remedy

Children with Scoliosis

Our spine is meant to be bendable and flexible for us to be able to move about freely and effortlessly. Too much of it though – as with anything – is not a good thing because it gives rise to conditions such as scoliosis, and about 2% of people live with it. It often develops gradually, and is not found in children until they are in their preteen to teenage years. Fortunately, a majority of these cases are mild, and do not affect a child’s life so they can live an active lifestyle. However, in certain cases where the curvature of the spine is more advanced, a child is likely to go through pain or decreased range of motion.

How is Scoliosis Diagnosed in Children?

Scoliosis is determined by observing the spine from the back. Completing a basic test is simple, and can be done by anyone. Nonetheless, you should still get a doctor to confirm the condition if you have reason to believe your child or someone you know has it. The standard test is when the child bends over and touches their feet while remaining as straight as possible. In this position, you can look and feel the spine to see if it travels in a straight line and if the rib cage and muscles around the back are equal (not higher or lower on one side). Examining a child’s feet, pelvis, legs, shoulders, and chest should also be noted to check whether or not the opposite sides match. If a doctor is checking for scoliosis during a physical exam, some may order an x-ray to have a better look.

 

Five Forms of Scoliosis that Plague Children

  1. Congenital Scoliosis – This form of scoliosis is found during birth, and is typically caused by a defect that has been detected. It may also form when the spine is pulled, twisted, or rotated along with the ribs during delivery. It is extremely rare, happening in one of every 10,000 births.
  1. Infantile Scoliosis – Infants may contract scoliosis that can be seen and may occur anywhere from a few months of age up until three. There is a chance this type of scoliosis has a relationship with neurological complications in their development. Most infants only have it for a period of time and it leaves as they get older, but in others it can persist and lead to physical deformity. Infantile scoliosis is found in boys more than girls.
  1. Juvenile Scoliosis – In contrast to infantile scoliosis, juvenile scoliosis is more likely to be seen in girls and it starts around the ages of three to ten. These kids are at greater risk of the spine’s curvature progressing.
  1. Adolescent Scoliosis – Adolescent scoliosis starts between ages 10 up until that maturation of their skeletal system. It may arise the moment a child hits puberty or appear while they are in their growth spurt period. Girls have a higher risk of getting this type as well.
  1. Idiopathic Scoliosis – Sometimes there is not a known reason why a child gets scoliosis, and it is deemed to be idiopathic.

Treat Pain from Scoliosis Naturally in Kids

It is a sad thing to see a child in pain, and all anyone would like to do is to end it more than anything. Most kids may not have an issue with pain even when they have the spinal disorder. Regardless, there are still a handful of kids that do, and parents look for methods that can help them better. Baltic Essentials Amber can treat scoliosis pain naturally without having to worry about side effects. The abnormal curvature of the spine causes swelling at the spine and surrounding areas such as the muscle which causes the discomfort.

Balancing Your Chakra to Release Negative Emotions

We all have a busy and hectic lifestyle than can make us forget to do one of the important things: to take care of ourselves. While most people may think about improving things such as what they eat or becoming more active, many forget about keeping clearing the mind and body from within. There are seven main centers of our body composed of energy known as chakras that correlate to our physical and emotional ability or disability. When we do go through issues, it can weaken our emotional reaction to doing, thinking, or handling things. The existence of fears and unstable emotions result in physical restrictions such as soreness and aches that block or affect one or more of our chakra points.

Pain and Stress Relief for Kids

Who Develops Stress? 

It can seem as if adults are the only one's to carry a multitude of the problems in the world when it comes to dealing with stress, but, whether we think about it or not, kids can be in the same boat. Honestly speaking, the thought of a child having or knowing what "stress" is may be laughable to some who believe kids do not fully understand what the term means whereas adults -- who have the more developed minds --do. Nonetheless, toddlers, babies and kids of different ages also do go through times in which they too deal with various forms of stress even though they cannot explain the nature of it. Instead, issues such as stress and anxiety is accepted in older adults (which is true) because it is more common.

Indeed, stress and anxiety are strong words that can be hard to comprehend even for the toddlers and babies affected by them. It is true that oftentimes, it happens on a level so overlooked and undetectable that no one actually believes that it is true. Today, more people are accepting of the concept, and look for ways to help their little one who is suffering. Parents and caregivers alike look for medicinal and natural remedies to help their child in whatever way that helps -- especially when they are still trying to discover what is the exact problem they are experiencing. One question that seems to pop up a lot is what causes or induces stress, anxiety and attention or focus-related issues in toddlers and kids. 

Common Forms of Stress in Kids 

Stress can occur both mentally and psychically when there is some kind of imbalance in the body. For example, when a child has stomach acidity and their tummy beings to hurt, they does not know how to project or explain their pain other than than crying. ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), colic, fever, teething issues, fussiness and even redness of skin are other common forms of stress in kids. While there are drugs available to help ease stress and the pain that may come with it, many prefer to look for holistic ways to help their kids, more so if they have to deal with it for a long time.

Heal Various Forms of Stress Naturally with Lapis Lazuli

An excellent way to deal with these problems naturally is by using healing stone, Baltic Essentials Lapis Lazuli. At times, Hazelwood or Amber may also used for the same purpose or the two may be used together for added benefit when it comes to toddlers. Hazelwood has many factoids and advantages that have found to be useful in treating problems with babies, and when used with Hazelwood, it helps fight these forms of stress while being therapeutic in nature. Our products are available  in the form of bracelets and necklaces for kids to comfortably wear them no matter where they are. Just be sure to take all jewelry off at night when they are sleeping.

Ease Teething  Pain

Baltic Amber is a Great Choice for Teething Babies

Is it accurate to say that you are a parent or guardian who stumbled upon Baltic Essentials Amber Teething Necklaces and wonders if it is a prudent decision for your infant who is going through a painful teething stage? I will manage you through the choice, and give you ideas to draw from to make your conclusion.

Baltic Amber amy be worn by a toddler to facilitate the discomfort of teething. While it may seem tantalizing for the child to put the beautiful, shiny object in their mouth, they should NOT bite on the necklace, While doing so is not a fatal choice, it is best for them to wear the lightweight necklace around their neck and against their skin (choices will be talked about in a bit) to accomplish help of teething agony. As a note, the necklaces and bracelets should not be worn at night or when they are taking naps unsupervised. As the amber interacts with the surface if the skin, it is warmed and releases succinic acid, a natural corrosive found in amber.

What Does Amber Do? 

Succinic acid is a natural calming agent for children for various reasons. The diminished irritation and discomfort begin to fade away due to its natural analgesic effects. Results are typically seen in several hours, and the effects keep going throughout the length of time they wear it. As a note for those who are concerned of issues if it is worn most of the day, know that there is no potential for a child to get an excessive amount of succinic acid from it.

Baltic amber teething necklaces are called that because they originate from the Baltic locale. The Baltic locale has the world's biggest supply of amber and also having the most elevated grouping of succinic corrosive. Amber is an antiquated tar, the more established the amber, the more intense the succinic corrosive. Amber from the Baltic area is 30-90 million years of age. When you are purchasing an amber necklace, make sure it is immaculate Baltic amber from the Baltic district, and not a amber substitute or "youthful" amber.

Baltic Amber is Completely Safe

Baltic Essentials Amber Necklaces are completely safe for infants and children to wear. The amber dabs are normally hung on a 1mm waxed cotton string and tied between each dot. This is essential to ensure security of the knots so it remains strong no matter how rough your child is with it. The necklace isfurther secured with screws, and the screw post is placed at the center point. The necklaces can be worn in the water; nonetheless it is best to keep it away from yet hard cleansers, and artificially treated water whenever possible. 

For parents that worry about keeping the necklace around your children's neck, there is an option too! Wrap the necklace two times around the infant's lower leg and place under a sock or inside footed night wear. It is also a great idea for do during the night when they sleep as the necklaces are not to be worn when they do in order to avoid choking. If There are also Baltic Essentials Amber Bracelets readily available These are approximately 5.5 inches long and ordinarily are not sufficiently huge to last all through the teething time of an infant.

Parents and guardians alike know what is best for their infant, and I enjoy the input given to those who purchase the products. I have had a 95% positive rating from people who buy Baltic Essentials Amber specifically for teething alleviation and many agree that the effects of amber can be seen in a short time frame.

I trust this offers the choice some assistance with making process and whatever technique you pick as a guardian to offer your teething kid I some assistance with hoping it works.

Many people talk about hypothyroidism in adults, but there is less talk about hypothyroidism in children although it is just as common. Congenital hypothyroidism starts from birth, but is often asymptomatic so a parent may not notice it until the infant grows older.  The disorder is only detected in 5% of infants by clinical criteria where a diagnosis is later confirmed.  Hypothyroidism may also be acquired  as your child gets older and may or may not be due to genetics. The underdeveloped thyroid gland ultimately does not produce adequate thyroid hormone to the body, and your child my experience issues such as weight gain, constipation, increased fatigue, decreased growth, lowered metabolism and it can affect the normal heart rate.

What Other Symptoms Should I Look For?

They also have impaired nutrient absorption so the skin and hair may become very dry and start to thin. You may notice altered behavior, increased belly pain, and chances in performance (such as in school). Additional signs you should look for are:

Adverse Complications in Hypothyrodism

It is best to treat the endocrine disorder as early as possible to avoid the many complications it could cause your child in the future such as:

  • The appearance of a goiter that causes a visible mass to appear in the neck. While it is often not life threatening,  it is uncomfortable which makes it hard to swallow, it can compromise breathing, and it can negatively affect their appearance.
  • Myxedema - It is a rare, life-threatening condition where someone will experience extreme cold intolerance to cold. They will first become drowsy, feel lethargic, and ultimately come unconscious.
  • Mental Issues - Over time, it is cause depression and result in decreased mental functioning.
  • Becoming Sterile - Low thyroid hormone levels can result in infertility in women as it can obstruct normal ovulation.
  • Heart Problems - Hypothyroidism is related to increased risk of high LDL (the "bad" cholesterol) and low HDL (the "good" cholesterol) which in turn affects the pumping ability of the heart. In time, the heart may become enlarges and heart failure can occur.

Holistic Approach in Treating Hypothyroidism

Determining whether or not your child has hypothyroidism is the first step, so it is important to get a diagnosis from a doctor if you suspect they have it. The most common form of treatment for hypothyroidism includes lifelong administration of synthetic  thyroid Baltic Amber Necklace - 12.5 Inch Baltic Amber Necklace Cherry Amber Turquoise Baby, Infant, Toddler, Big Kid. hormones and possible hormone replacement therapy for the duration of their lives. You can also treat hypothroidism naturally using Baltic Essentials Amber Necklaces or Bracelets. Amber is an organic product derived from fossilized resin. It is full of anti-inflammatory properties that will help reduce to eliminate a majority of the symptoms associated with the disorder. Amber helps balance the overall pH levels in the body as well and heightens immunity when it is worn. One of the most notable benefits is that it can help stimulate the thyroid to make more thyroid hormones to help bring it back to the normal levels or as close as possible. The benefits of the resin is transferred from the necklace to the body where it gets absorbed into the bloodstream.
