Dr. Who Listens - Do Kids Truly "Grow Out Of" Things Like Colic, Reflux, and Constipation?

Dear Parents,

We need to tackle a problem that’s been brushed aside for far too long. Conventional pediatricians tell us that certain childhood conditions like colic, chronic constipation, reflux, or ear infections are just phases that kids grow out of. But the truth is far from it.

If you’ve spent sleepless nights comforting a child with any of these issues, you know they don’t just vanish on their own. And if you’re grappling with tantrums, developmental delays, or sleep troubles, don’t dismiss them as passing phases either.

As parents, you know when something isn’t right with your child. You’ve likely been advised to wait it out, but deep down, you can sense there’s more to it. The science behind these conditions lies in the function and development of the central and autonomic nervous system—an area that traditional pediatricians often overlook, but is the specialty of Neurologically-Focused Pediatric Chiropractic care.

What Happens When There is Stress Built Up on the Nervous System?

Whether your child is two months old or a teenager, the neurological roots of colic, sensory issues, autism, ADHD, anxiety, constipation, and chronic autoimmune challenges are strikingly similar.

It all comes down to the nervous system being subluxated, stressed, and stuck in what’s called sympathetic dominance, or imbalance.

Early childhood stressors like prenatal distress, birth interventions, and toxin exposure can leave the nervous system dysregulated, leading to a condition called dysautonomia. This emphasizes the importance of addressing root causes rather than merely labeling symptoms and shuffling you from one specialist to another.


Pediatric Chiropractors are adept at alleviating stress on the nervous system in children with colic, sensory issues, and anxiety—a concept often misunderstood by the medical system. By focusing on the nervous system’s health, as we do in our office, everything else from digestion to immune function, falls into place more smoothly. The medical system simply does not understand functional neurology as we do in our office. 

Ignoring symptoms like colic and chronic ear infections can pave the way for chronic autoimmune conditions, allergies, and a compromised immune system. Moreover, seemingly typical childhood behaviors like tantrums and hyperactivity might indicate deeper neurological issues, impacting a child’s emotional well-being and academic performance.
