The very first thing she would tell anyone who walks through the clinic doors at Millpond Wellness Center is, it isn’t always easy. Sometimes it’s the struggle of finding a good recipe that will honor the things you want to leave out- like grains, or dairy.
You want to have a good healthy lifestyle and want recipes and meal planning to work.
Healthy children and mealtimes
Kids make life very busy, and are always on the go. Making lunches every day for them, while also making sure they get enough sleep when they come home from a late practice can be difficult. We want to give you solutions and some simple changes to make it easier.
Adults know that healthy lifestyle habits will mean cutting out foods they like or missing out on those weekly chocolate treats, but children, they are another matter altogether, and mealtimes can take some ingenious recipe workarounds to get them to eat something that is healthy and they enjoy. Changing the mindset of children is very important and the accountability of Millpond helps us make the necessary changes.
Kids go to school every day, and being around all the other sickly kids, kids get sick regularly. Doctors may be giving too many antibiotics, recommending tubes in ears that are not necessary. Homeopathic remedies, like lavender, lemon, and tea tree oil will help get kids better faster without destroying their immune systems with too many antibiotics. We start everything naturally so when there is a real need for an antibiotic- it will be effective.
Immune System and Antibiotics
Parents of today might have been exposed to antibiotics or other medications when they were younger, and can see the effect it has taken on their immune system. For this reason, they want the best for their children, so rather than reaching for the medicine cabinet during an illness, they might seek a more natural alternative approach as a remedy. Children will get healthier faster than adults if they haven’t been put on different antibiotics.
This is all well and good in most cases, but when children return to school, they are exposed to bugs and viruses that are spread quickly. Nowadays, if a family follows a healthy lifestyle approach and medicines aren’t used, children can recover much faster from a viral infection than their parents. In the first instance, a homeopathic solution can be found, but it might take a while longer to find the solution than grabbing a bottle.
The advantage with not reaching for medication or antibiotics at every infection helps to build strength in a child’s immune system. It can remain intact, and when there is a situation where it does require an antibiotic, you will be sure it will work rather than their body having built resistance against it.
Another area for healthy lifestyle habits is in bath time products. Names like Johnson and Johnson are scattered everywhere, but these again might be harmful to a child’s immune system. This shows how hard it can be for mothers to transform a family’s life to a healthier one, and there are no areas where she needs to keep her vigilance over potentially harmful products. The doctors will help you get well and Amanda will give you some tips and lifelong hints to keep the healthy lifestyle going.
We want to help heal your whole family, and have your whole family have optimal health. Having kids makes it even more important to have the “why” you want to stay healthy. A long life with your family is important. Bad health and fatigue will take away from a healthy, and happy lifestyle.
A healthy lifestyle for all the family in Lexington KY
As was mentioned at the start, not all of the faces in the clinic are doctors. It can be so helpful when you have a person who you can talk to who sees things from a very different perspective. Amanda is there to help others come to terms with what the changes to their lifestyle can mean.
