    121. Thyriod series part 2: Understanding testing and body signs

    This one is for our detail and science lovers

    Jenny breaks down a complex topic into simple pieces. We learn

    - What to test for when looking to understand the thyroid

    - Standard testing and misconceptions

    - Common triggers and causes of thyroid dysfunction

    - Over active, under active and autoimmune thyroid difficulties

    - How to seek proper testing and who pays

    This episode forms part of a 3-part series on understanding the thyroid. We know that in order to have proper healing and restoration in the body, we must have a clear functioning nervous system. This starts with chiropractic.

    Those who need or require additional support can find great help with like-minded, holistic and naturally focused practitioners such as those on Dr Libby's team. Jenny is a great help for this and we encourage you to seek her support if needed

    119. Tongue Tie Part 3 of 3 with Dr Sam Haitsma

    Our final episode of the series and it's the perfect end. If you are a parent, carer or know someone desperately looking for hope with their babies latch and feeding - then this is where you will find it.



    We will discuss the link between tongue movement, brain to body communication, subluxation in the nervous system and tongue tie. We will tell you EXACTLY what you can do, who you can talk, the questions to ask and the results to expect.

    There IS hope and there IS a way forward where both you, and your baby can thrive.

    Chiropractic care is a huge part of this and it is within a chiropractor's toolbox to support a baby to find ease and proper movement with their tongue, either with or without further intervention.

    117. Understanding and Addressing Tongue Tie: Part 1 of 3 with Dr Sam Haitsma

    117. Understanding and Addressing Tongue Tie: Part 1 of 3 with Dr Sam Haitsma

    As mothers, Katie and Sam both acknowledge we always do our best in the moment with what we have. They both express gratitude for the 'tools in the toolkit' so to speak that has helped them to navigate Motherhood - both the challenges and the things that may come easier. However, with this in mind there are things that would, or could, be done differently with both hindsight and the enlightened information and experience they have now.

    With that in mind, Sam declares she would not change a thing as that journey of Motherhood is what has sparked and fueled such a huge fire for her to help other families thrive with chiropractic, and especially those who's journey may involve difficulties such as a tongue tie.

    Their introductions set the scene for a wealth of knowledge between two fiery, passionate, driven and incredibly experienced chiropractors.

    Sam shares in her discussion with Katie what a true tongue tie is, causes and timeline, the 3 contributing factors of a tongue tie presentation, who to see, how to help and what other factors may be at play.

    This is the perfect start to our 3 part series on Tongue Tie and we encourage you to please listen, share and review our podcast with those in your circles

    116. The Move Room: Best Movements For Growing Brains

    116. The Move Room: Best Movements For Growing Brains

    We are joined by The Move Room today for a brilliant Chat on all things brain and movement for our little people.
    As we know in Chiropractic, when our brains are appropriately stimulated and with good clarity in the nervous system - we see sequential movement development in children. This skill continues on into our lives as we learn new tasks, create movement patterns or even recover from potentially drastic events such as illness or injury.
    The ability of our brain to grow and develop is an innate function, and it requires a clear nervous system along with appropriate stimulation to do so optimally.

    Caroline and Esmie share with us some powerful movement patterns and tips, how to support young children, signs to watch for, fun activities at home and all about the brain and movement development.
    We loved this Chat and are sure you will enjoy listening to it too

    Takeaways

    Movement plays a crucial role in a child's brain and body development, including balance, coordination, and spatial awareness.
    Active play and physical activities promote movement, well-being, and the development of gross motor and fine motor skills.
    Parents should find a balance between screen time and active play, and provide opportunities for unstructured play and exploration.
    Being a role model for active living and involving children in everyday activities can support their movement development.
