There are many different kinds of therapies today. Some people have found great success in choosing natural therapies over medical therapies. Some of the many possibilities include Chiropractic Care, Massage Therapy, Holistic Therapy, Stem Cell Therapy, and Hyperbaric Therapy, just to mention a few.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE – There are so many benefits of routine chiropractic care. Not only does a chiropractor keep your bones in line, in doing so, they are ensuring that your nervous system is in line and functioning properly as well. A major component is the communication between your child’s brain and their body. This is a vital link controlling the growth, repair, and function of every cell, tissue, and organ in the body. Chiropractic care is an excellent option for all children and adults, but when it comes to children with Hydranencephaly, it can be one of the best options. The chiropractic approach to health is safe and natural, and is the best thing that you can do for your child. Chiropractic care for children is very gentle and is proven to be very effective for many concerns. Children with Hydran often suffer from scolios, reflux, irritability, hip problems, constipation, and weak immune systems. Chiropractic care can help to improve and/or prevent these problems. By adjusting all of the different bones in your body, especially those in your neck and back, the chiropractor is also adjusting and stimulating the nervous system and ensuring that it is functioning properly. Did you know that nerves in the mid-back lead to your stomach and upper GI tract. If you have a problem with your mid-back where those nerves are getting irritated, compressed or inflamed, the part of the body connected by those nerves may not function properly causing reflux. Chiropractors can help children with hip problems by adjusting and placing the hips back into their proper position. Adjusting the spine routinely can help lower the chances of scoliosis, and is often able to be diagnosed and treated early on before surgery is necessary. The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease. – Thomas A. Edison

MASSAGE THERAPY: Massage therapy is used on people of all ages. It is even being said that massage therapy has been known to reduce stress in children, boosting the immune system and its ability to resist illness. Massage therapy has several benefits of children who have special needs. It is said to be beneficial in sensory integration, increased attention, improved sleep through relaxation, improved digestion, improved immune system and improved body awareness. Massage therapy could also attend to certain medical conditions by assisting the body’s natural ability to heal enhancing immunity by stimulating lymph flow which is the body’s natural defense system. It also helps to pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs improving circulation, reduces spasms and cramping and increasing joint flexibility.

Holistic therapies focus on the individual as a whole. Modern treatments focus on certain parts of the body, working diligently to ensure that they are working and presenting properly. The problem is that the body parts that are usually being worked with are not the problem when it comes to a child with Hydranencephaly, or any person with a neurological disorder, the brain is. In order to make the vision, hearing, hands, feet, and voice work, one must first correct the problem in the brain.

REACH FAMILY INSTITUTE REACH Family Institute’s method to Holistic Brain Development offers a wealth of information in all areas of development. Their mission is “to empower parents and professionals with knowledge and practical tools related to human brain development and purposeful parenting.” REACH believes that every child should be given the opportunity to reach their fullest potential. For years, Charles and Conceição Solis have taught about brain plasticity. Brain plasticity is the brain’s unique ability to change its anatomical structure and functional organization in response to experience. This is important because it means that functional ability can be created where it does not exist and improved where it does.

“Comment from REACH April 2010---A great reminder of the endless possibilities, and encouragement to move forward in the toughest of times! Desiray and Mackenzie - a very special mother and a very special daughter! Born with hydranencephaly, Mackenzie was completely blind and immobile when she came to us 2.5 years ago. Now Mackenzie can see faces, toys, and pictures as well as track something when it moves! Mackenzie was blind and now can see! Oh, and she can tummy crawl down an inclined plane too! That's a miracle all right, the miracle of the human brain and the amazing power of love and dedication. Congratulations to the whole Nelson crowd and all of Mackenzie's supporters!”

“The human brain is unique in that it is the only container of which it can be said that the more you put into it, the more it will hold.” – Glenn Doman is another great site and place on holistic brain development. ‘What to Do About Your Brain Injured Child’ by Glenn Doman is an excellent book.
