The CHIRP™ Study
Times are changing. Did you know that the scientific community is beginning to coalesce around the idea that chronic health conditions may be due in large part to external factors including environmental and other everyday exposures rather than genes? Is it possible that conditions once thought to be lifelong—conditions like asthma, allergies, ADHD, autoimmune diseases and more, might actually be reversible?
It’s true — the things that we do or are exposed to in our daily lives may be much more influential than our genes in creating these widespread problems. This means that many of the root causes of chronic illnesses may be within our control. If so many causes are in our control, could removing the causes be a way to help people get better?
This is what I want to know.
We’re doing a study called CHIRP™, which stands for Child Health Inventory for Resilience and Prevention, because we’ve already talked with thousands of parents, and have dug into these details – and these conversations support the latter story. That’s why we want to look into the situation more rigorously and systematically by doing a formal research study. If the latter story is supported by our study findings, this will give further support to our conviction that there are lots of things we can do to make our kids healthy again.
If your child has been diagnosed with a chronic health condition like asthma, ADHD, allergies, autoimmune disease or autism, we truly hope you will choose to participate in this study. When you do, you will be asked many questions about your child’s lifestyle – the foods they eat, the products they use, the kind of sleep they get – and also about their health and development – and the health of the family. In return for participating in this study, you will receive a personalized health report for your child that highlights the very specific things in the environment that may be negatively affecting his or her health. This report is a gold mine for parents and practitioners because the key to improving children’s health is to start with a comprehensive look into each particular child’s medical and lifestyle history. You will have in your hands a powerful tool for unleashing your child’s full health potential and all the good things in life that being truly healthy allows.
So, we hope the reports we give each family will strongly increase their motivation to address actionable issues and turn around their child’s health problems. And we hope that if or when the data shows what we are predicting, we will strongly increase the world’s motivation to turn around this epidemic of childhood illness.
