Toe walking is quite common when young children are learning to walk. Most outgrow it by the time they are two years old. Occasionally, toe walking becomes a habit (idiopathic toe walking). The Mayo Clinic advises that as long as your child is developing normally, there is likely no cause for concern. However, take a look. Toe walking can be a sign of autism or cerebral palsy. The earlier autistic disorder or cerebral palsy is diagnosed, the better.
Toe walking that continues after the age of two may be a symptom of:
- A short Achilles tendon
- Autism or other developmental disorders
- Cerebral palsy or other neurological disorders
- heavy metal poisoning
If you notice your child walking on their toes, talk to your child’s pediatrician.
Ask about risks and possible neurological and developmental tests for delays, disorders, or illnesses. Most likely, unless there are other symptoms, they just look at you. Many grow up walking on their toes and have to consciously think about it in order to walk normally. Most of the time it doesn’t really cause any real problems, but sometimes it does.
Heavy metal detoxification first. If the body doesn’t cleanse itself first, you may only be adding to the problem. It’s just common sense. How can you really know what the problem is, until you have a clean place to work? Pharmaceutical companies know this. All of their testing is done in a controlled, clean environment with purified water. Pharmaceutical companies know that test results can be compromised by what is in the air around us and the water used for cleaning and drinking.
If your child walks on their toes, you can easily help them detox from heavy metals with activated, macronized and suspended liquid zeolite. It is on the FDA’s Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS) list and has no age or dosage warnings. Then the diagnosis and treatment are more likely to be accurate. Don’t risk a misdiagnosis. Who knows what other symptoms it might relieve.
Walking on tiptoes is a symptom
Before treating it, detoxification of heavy metals. It just makes sense.
