It is well understood that the first two years of life are important for psychological development; but, most don’t realize that this period is also extremely important for the developing immune system. The child’s immune health at this time of development will have an enormous impact on the future health of the child. Science leaves little room for doubt that introducing toxins into the child (including drugs) will suppress his or her immune system. The most important thing for a developing child is a healthy diet and nervous system. In addition the most important time for the nervous system in development is from conception through year 7.

Dr. Brown’s fine tips raising a strong, healthy baby:

(1) Healthy diet. This means tough love when it comes to “giving in” to comfort foods that have been marketed to you and your child. Eliminate gluten/wheat, soy, dairy, and processed sugar. Concentrate on healthy protein such as fish (not farm raised), all colors of vegetables and fruit, and nuts of all kinds. Avoid all processed foods, sodas, and candy because they are some of the main reasons for the exponential increase in childhood Diabetes.

(2) Avoid anti-biotics. They are still given out like candy. Chiropractic adjustments boost the immune system, and along with a healthy diet, can halt the rounds of painful ear infections as it has with so many of my patients.

(3) Kids need lots of exercise. The childhood Obesity epidemic in America is directly related to lack of exercise and to fast food diets.

(4) Breast feed your babies. This is nature’s way, and the single best way, to boost your child’s immune system. Avoid soy baby formulas at all costs (see my previous blogs on soy)

(5) Research vaccinations thoroughly before you have your child vaccinated. Some of them are not worth the risk.

(6) Limit electronic media. Electromagnetic frequency risks are now being exposed. Children need to run and jump and play in real, spatial time to fully develop balance and coordination as well as executive function. Brain research now indicates that computer use and video games may increase the child’s ability to recognize symbols and icons while hindering brain development in math in both hemispheres as well as executive function in the frontal lobe (especially the right hemisphere).

Interactive Metronome (IM) has been widely recognized for improving motor skills and now research is finding unexpected benefits to IM treatment. Clinicians working with cognitive, behavioral, social, communicative, and academic functions are finding substantial improvements in these areas:
(1) Attention and concentration
(2) Cognitive speed
(3)Executive function
(4) Auditory processing
(5) Language processing
(6) Motor control and co-ordination
(7) Memory problems
(8) Self control (aggression/impulsivity)
(9) Reading & math fluency
(10) Phonological awareness
(11) Speech apraxia
(12) Tourette’s Syndrome, tics,
(13) Stuttering
(14) Sensory processing

What is IM?
IM is a brain based assessment and treatment tool that has been shown to improve neurological functions of motor planning and sequencing (core functions of the brain). Reaching, grasping, aiming, speaking, walking, and listening all utilize motor planning and sequencing. Before IM, objective measurements were lacking and there were two important questions that were unanswered:
(1) What tool can precisely and objectively measure and document the degree of impairment to motor planning and sequencing?
(2) What is the most objective and efficient way to restore these core brain functions?

IM is the answer to both these questions. Clinicians can objectively measure motor planning and sequencing and assign a level of impairment in milliseconds. As the student improves, her ability to motor plan and sequence is reflected in improving millisecond averages.

What age group is IM appropriate for? Age 6 and above have been traditionally qualified; however, today chiropractic neurologists have been using IM with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers in certain cases. Expected improvements in the areas of sensory processing, motor planning, language, and communication are measured and documented. Some students progress at a faster rate than others.
