The study, carried out by the researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, published in the journal Biological Psychiatry, found that chronic, toxic stress like poverty, neglect and physical abuse can have lasting negative impacts in children. Researchers found that children exposed to stress had changes in the Amygdala than children who had not. This led to behavioral problems. Stress factors experienced in early life, might change the parts of developing children’s brains responsible for learning, memory and the processing of stress and emotion.


Understanding this is the first step. Understanding could lead to a change in our attitude and lifestyle.

Even subtle changes (like changing to a positive attitude) will be contagious, and de-stress a child.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
