Autism NOT Genetic or Irreversible

As the parent of a child diagnosed with PDD, then Asperger’s (both on the Autism Spectrum) (and after many misdiagnoses), I was both enraged and ecstatic to learn that ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorders) are not genetic, and can be reversed through holistic nutrition and integrative medical care.  I was ecstatic because I had found hope for a better future for my child; enraged because doctors had advised me improperly (out of ignorance) and actually discouraged me from the path to the truth – exploring food sensitivities and natural...

The Hidden Dangers of “Mental Health Awareness” and “Assessments”

The Hidden Dangers of “Mental Health Awareness” and “Assessments”

They seem benign enough: just a short questionnaire delivered by a very friendly, compassionate type, who has come out to talk to your group about the importance of mental health. And it is. Important, I mean. We all know this already, of course. Anyone who has suffered prolonged stress or angst, or the psychosis that can follow, understands just how important. Sleep, mood, memory, ambition, perspective, logic, sex drive, stamina, energy, mental acuity, strength – all are impacted negatively by extreme stress. The primary problem I have...

Ancient Wisdom

Your grandmother may not have known that it was the Eicosapentaenoic Acid and Docosahexaenoic Acid in fish that boosted brain function, but she knew fish was brain food. She may not have known that chocolate boosts serotonin levels, but when you were down and at grandma’s house, she baked you some chocolate chip cookies or a chocolate pie. Similarly, many ancient cultures had food rituals, like gifting newly weds with prized fats to ensure a healthy conception, and feeding the sick with the parts of the animal that corresponded to their...

Why Baby Rashes Are a Serious Concern

While it’s rather common to see babies with a rash on the bottom, a baby with a rash that does not go away, a rash in the mouth (thrush), a rash on the face, or on the trunk or limbs of the body, can be a serious early warning sign of underlying nutritional concerns.  Digestive problems often manifest early on as body rashes, and ignoring rashes can have serious long-term consequences to a baby’s overall health. Baby rashes can be traced to three major nutritional causes: A candida/ yeast overgrowth.  This can be a result of...

The Main Acne Causing Foods – Not What You Think!

The Main Acne Causing Foods – Not What You Think!

Most people who suffer from acne intuitively know that food habits play a role, but seldom do they know the real dietary culprits.  The common assumption is that sugary foods create pimples because they are junky.  And, while sugar can add to inflammation in the body, it is NOT the primary dietary link to acne. In fact, many people with acne remove sugar only to be completely disheartened when it provides little to no relief from the break outs. I suffered for years from moderate to serious acne on my face, and know first hand how scarring...

Medical Muddling

As many of my readers know, I have become greatly concerned about the neglect of the Canadian Medical Establishment when it comes to Lyme disease. Today I witnessed a perfect example… A neighbour has taken ill this week, after being bitten by something on a bus.  On inspection, there is no bump, as you would find with a mosquito or fly, no itching, and no stinging, which might suggest a bee.  The sickness began with a fever, fatigue, and malaise, and the site bears a red rash about 1-1.5″ in diameter, not raised, and, as I said,...

Easy Ways to Lower Stress and Support Adrenals

This past week I had the pleasure of sharing with The Richmond Hill Women’s Networking Association about simple natural methods to help manage stress.  This post serves as a summary of the short presentation I gave. Stress is not a bad thing, as we sometimes think.  It’s a natural component of what it means to be alive.  Think of having a baby: it can be a stressful time, but it is a good stress.  However, it’s a relatively new phenomenon for humans to live in a state of chronic, low grade stress, as we do...

Kids Boycott School Lunches!

Wisconsin Fourth-Graders Boycott School Lunch from CivilEats.com Patricia Mulvey reported on the blog F is for French Fry that a group of fourth-grade students at Nuestro Mundo Elementary School in Madison, WI had planned to protest the unhealthy food served in their cafeteria by staying behind in class during recess and enjoying a home-cooked meal. Their “Real Food Picnic” – you might call it an Eat-In – was cancelled, however, when the school district’s assistant superintendent alerted parents and school administrators and asked...

Protection from Nuclear Radiation – Don’t Think You Need It?

Protection from Nuclear Radiation – Don’t Think You Need It?

Just over a year after the tragic nuclear disaster in Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, I remain in a state of disbelief and disgust at the lack of mainstream media attention.  Here in Toronto, it was trumped in every paper and on every station by the banality of modern election discourse.  I did happen to catch an evening of academic debate on CBC, and a lot of interesting discourse came from the Bioneers 2011 Conference and radio shows.  But other than that, natta.  Of course, what’s a nuclear catastrophe unlike...
