Dr. Tara Buchakjian, welcome to the show.
Dr. Tara, I am so excited to have you on the show today to speak about a topic that is so near and dear to my heart and the hearts of so many of our listeners and that is the health & wellness of our children.
Dr. Tara, can you tell our listeners a little more about yourself and especially what led you to become a chiropractic physician?
As we all know stress attacks the nervous system 1st and the 3 most significant sources of stress; Physical, chemical and emotional are at all-time highs, between the added stress of sitting for longer periods of time in class, having less time for recess/exercise, and the physical demands of year round sport programs: We have created 80,000 more chemicals on our planet that were not here when our grandparents were born, almost every day we are seeing lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies who have been and continue to use junk science to promote more and more drugs to our children and the explosion of a whole new class of emotion stress between social media and its instantaneous quick to react & often OVER react social justice warrior mindset and nearly constant use of digital devices, kids today need as much help as ever living healthy productive lives.
Dr. Tara what are some of the most common health problems you see in children & infants that come in to your office for care? And how do you address these problems from a chiropractic approach?
Dr. Tara you have treated thousands of infants & children since you have been in practice, would you like to share a remarkable case or two that perhaps our listeners would be fascinated to hear?
Now, Dr. Tara, You & I know that chiropractic healthcare has been alive & thriving for over 120 years. Most are not aware that children have been safely & successfully treated by chiropractors all throughout its 120+ year history, however to many people the thought of bringing a child to a chiropractor to have their spine and nervous system checked for proper function is something they have never thought of before.
Dr. Tara, what are some of the biggest misconceptions that parents and other health care providers have about children and chiropractic care?
Do you have any resources that you would recommend to our listeners for learning more about chiropractic, health & wellness for infants & children?
Dr. Tara, do you have any last minute words of wisdom for our listeners?
