Many children experience some fears and anxiety as each new school year begins. A few late nights or fluttery tummies in the days before school begins are often signals not only of nervousness, but also of excitement at seeing old friends and meeting new ones. It is perfectly natural for your child to be nervous, excited, anxious and eager all at the same time leading up to, and during the first days of, school. However, for some children the beginning of a new school year or starting at a new school brings on a sense of terrific anxiety and stress.

What is hayfever?
Any dis-ease or disorder in the body is caused by internal or external stressors which come from many sources such as toxicity, trauma, pathogens, emotional factors (fear, anxiety, anger), pollution, poor nutrition, heredity factors, poor living conditions, lifestyle issues, lack of sleep, overwork, stress and environmental changes (temperature, altitude, damp, dryness, etc.) The symptoms that we see or feel are the body’s efforts to heal itself. Hayfever is, quite simply, an overreaction to something in our environment such as cat hair, grass, pollen and dust. Encourage your body’s healing mechanisms, restore balance, and your symptoms will disappear.

Jenna brought her eight-year-old daughter Annie (fictitious names) for a consultation. According to Annie’s teacher, she wasn’t focusing in class, was extremely dreamy, easily distracted and not completing her tasks in time. She needed constant attention and reminding, and the teacher was pushing the mother to put her child onto Ritalin because her grades were dropping, her confidence was taking a knock, and she was becoming noticeably withdrawn. On top of this, she was not fitting in socially with her peers.
