Easy Ways to Boost Your Child’s IQ

Did you know there are several simply, healthy things parents can do to help make their kids smarter?  Dr. Smith has compiled a sampling of recent research on how to boost your child’s IQ. 

  • Avoid brain-shrinking chronic pain
  • Read together
  • Get spiritual
  • Send stress packing
  • Unleash the unstructured play
  • Exercise, especially outdoors
  • Seek out social interaction
  • Play with pets
  • Stock up on sleep
  • Breastfeed for brain power
  • Eat a healthy diet full of whole foods
  • Turn off the TV

And finally, get attention-boosting chiropractic adjustments.  The more vertebral subluxations an individual has, the more his or her cognitive function may be compromised (J Manipulative Physiol Ther 1997;20:529-45.)

Other findings reveal that chiropractic adjustments activate “specific neurological pathways.”  (J Manipulative Physiol Ther 1997;20:529-45.)
