Getting you closer to a better health.

VISION FOR OUR CHILDREN

Bridge Jax specializes in guiding children through the adoption of a healthy diet. You can think of being overweight, but also difficult eaters or food intolerance. We have a program specifically focused on nutrition and behavior for children and young people. Together with their peers, they can participate in the Children on the Move program, which focuses on nutrition and exercise lessons.

Our Programs

To achieve success, motivation and active participation of both children and parents is necessary in this program. There is also a meeting where the parents are central and also have the opportunity to receive personal nutritional advice. For this we would like to make an appointment with you.

Babies, Toddlers and children

In addition to the individual supervision of children and young people,Bridge Jax also offers individual guidance to babies and toddlers aged 0 to 3 years. Bridge Jax specializes in guiding children through the adoption of a healthy diet. You can think of being overweight, but also difficult eaters or food intolerance. We have a program specifically focused on nutrition and behavior for children and young people. 

Young people

For overweight youngsters between the ages of twelve and sixteen, the Bridge Jax Youngym exercise program has been developed in collaboration with Bridge Fit. This exercise program helps overweight young people to become healthy and active in a fun way. Together with other peers, young people are introduced to all kinds of sports and other activities under the supervision of a physiotherapist.

BridgeFood For Kids Program

The BridgeFood For Kids program focuses on nutrition and behavior and makes children aware of healthy nutrition through education and motivation. The aim of this program is for the children to be able to form a healthy basis for their bodies in time, both now and in the future. During the meetings, the most important topics about healthy eating are discussed, such as breakfast (s) and snacks.

Irritable bowel

With irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) you regularly have abdominal pain and stool problems. The pain is often in changing places in the abdomen. More exercise and less stress can reduce the symptoms. If necessary, you can use medication to temporarily reduce the symptoms.

Phenomena

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) involves a disturbed functioning of the intestine. This is also known as spastic colon, spastic bowel or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Characteristics are abdominal pain, chronic constipation, diarrhea or alternating diarrhea and constipation. Gas formation in the intestines and a swollen abdomen after the meal can also occur. Some people always suffer from IBS, but for most patients the symptoms are not always present. The complaints often play on or get worse with tension or pressure.

Cause

The cause of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is not exactly known, but it is usually a combination of factors. A disturbed, spastic movement of the intestine and / or an extra sensitive intestinal wall play a role in any case. There are also indications that IBS can occur due to an intestinal infection, such as with food poisoning. Abnormal processing of stimuli in the gastrointestinal tract and possibly in the brain also play a role in this. This is still being investigated. Stress and a wrong diet make the symptoms worse.

Therapy

Try to reduce avoidance behavior. For example, if you are not attending meetings or other events because you are unsure whether there is a good toilet nearby, you may miss useful meetings or entertaining parties that may give you some distraction. If you get stressed when you have to go to an unknown environment, PDS complaints can get worse. Try to see if you can experience more of those meetings. Build it up by, for example, agreeing with someone that you only go to a party for half an hour. Feel free to ask if somewhere, away from the crowds, there is a toilet where you can go if necessary.
