Why Our Children Need Supplements & Natural Immune Boosting Support
The Lifelong Gift of Omega Oils
Why Supplements Are Important by Dr. Murray Clarke, ND., D.Hom., L.Ac
In my clinic as a homeopathic pediatrician, my efforts are dedicated to understanding what promotes health. This includes what causes, what prevents, as well as what heals the diverse conditions affecting our children. Careful nurturing through the formative years creates the basis for good health throughout life. On the physical level, this means a healthful diet and nutritional supplements.
- Studies from around the world show that modern farming methods have resulted in depleted soil conditions. Hence, the foods grown on that soil no longer contain the full spectrum of essential nutrients needed for healthy development, strong immune function and emotional and mental vitality.
- Fast foods, junk foods, processed foods, poor dietary habits, and the finicky appetites of many children also require nutritional supplementation to correct, and balance nutritional deficiencies.
- The extraordinary increase in exposure to environmental pollutants and toxicity from this century’s industrial pursuits creates the need for extra immune and anti-oxidant protection for today’s children.
A child who does not receive enough of all the essential vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids will be much more prone to a wide variety of illnesses. I developed the ChildLife® line of nutritional supplements to increase awareness about these deficiencies and their consequences, and to provide all the necessary ingredients in a great tasting and readily available form.
The body and mind developed during childhood create the foundation for the rest of your child’s life. It is my hope that ChildLife Essentials® will play an ongoing role in developing and maintaining many healthful and hopeful lives.
