Colic is officially defined by the “Rule of Threes.” The rule of threes means a baby is otherwise healthy and well-fed (i.e. is gaining weight and exhibits no signs of illness); but has episodes of crying, irritability and fussiness that last up to or more than three hours a day, occurs at least three or more days a week and for more than three weeks in a month.
So what is the cause of colic and why do so many babies suffer from it? The cause is actually much more obvious than we think. The birth process is an extremely stressful experience for both mum and baby. Many babies are traumatized by this experience and this causes an imbalance in their nervous system.
Any adult who has experienced a stressful experience will be able to tell you how the body starts acting up when under stress. Most commonly, heartburn, indigestion, hair loss, bowel problems and difficulty sleeping are reported. Taking heartburn medication and sleeping tablets simply treats the symptoms and does not deal with the underlying problem-stress or an imbalanced nervous system.
So now that you understand what your baby is going through, lets look at how you can help your baby by re balancing their nervous system. Adults take up meditation, take up different forms of exercise and some even go for counseling therapy. What about babies?
Because the babies nervous system is still maturing, it is very easy to instill balance. The earlier you do so the better! Wish there was something you could do? Well…there is.
It is called Baby Bowen. Baby Bowen is the best natural colic relief you will find.
