Poor appetite and the concern of juvenile diabetes
Did you know that poor appetite in children can be an indicator for low insulin production and diabetes? Here’s a typical description from a parent:
“Kathy, my child does not want to eat. They never really have been good eaters from birth on. Meal time is such agony – they resist everything I try to feed them. The doctors say they will eat when they get hungry, but this has gone on too long. Nothing seems to improve their appetite. They are often sick and it takes some time for them to recover. The doctor also says they are low in iron. Well, that doesn’t surprise me – they don’t eat!”
I have heard this from worried parents several times over the years. Like the parents, my concern is that they are not getting the nutrition they need to build their body as they grow. Emotionally, these children can be quite stubborn.
Children who suffer from poor appetite and refuse to eat may be having this trouble because their bodies aren’t creating sufficient insulin . They may develop Type 1 diabetes (childhood diabetes). Sometimes, the child has a history of diabetes in the family, sometimes not. I know once children are diagnosed with diabetes and regular insulin is taken, it is very difficult to heal the body with remedies.
In every case, I check the whole body intuitively to see if there is another reason for this lack of appetite. They may have a lack of stomach acid, gallbladder or liver issues. Once I determine everything that is going on, I create their individual vibrational remedies. This lets me see if the body can start to create sufficient insulin and correct any other digestive issues at the same time.
Sometimes there is birth trauma that I can also help heal through emotional healing at the time of the appointment. Covering the emotional and spiritual healing as well as the physical ailments makes the outcome much more positive.
In each of several cases, I have seen the appetite changes. They are now more interested in food. Their eating becomes sufficient to keep them well and less susceptible to getting sick all the time. Once the body is creating sufficient insulin, I may still have work to do in order to help the child’s body to use this insulin efficiently. That healing is much easier to understand, shift, and see the changes after the first big step of getting the child to eat. It is amazing to know that a child who was once on the road to juvenile diabetes has now overcome that scenario and will not need to be insulin dependent all their lives.
