The Stress We Carry – UPDATE

The Stress We Carry – UPDATE

So it has been around six months since I went to my doctor to talk about the health issues I had been dealing with.   To remind everyone, I was diagnosed with basically no progesterone, thyroid inflammation, adrenal fatigue, and multiple vitamin deficiencies.   No wonder I was feeling so tired and filled with anxiety. So […]

Disclaimer:  My kid is not your kid.

This post is based on four years of biomedical intervention experience with my own child.  I am hoping the message that I’m about to convey will help parents with their own child’s recovery.  So please don’t take what I am about to write as me being hurtful or rude.  I just want to be helpful […]

Proof that our kids can heal from Autism

Proof that our kids can heal from Autism

If you have been in the biomed community for any length of time, then you are well aware of the “naysayers”. The Naysayers that say us biomed parents are kooky.  That we can’t REALLY heal our children from autism.   That autism is 100% neurological, and this is just how our children are.  And this […]

Nothing is set in stone.

Nothing is set in stone.

On this Friday, I am feeling particularly PUMPED! Why? Because I feel so much hope for all of you, and our children. We may have our down days. Our days filled with frustration, our days of feeling incredibly confused. Hell, I had one earlier on this week!  But then there are days, like today for […]

Glutathione 101

I’ve been at this biomed business for just over 12 years.  When we started, we took out milk, then wheat…and ended up going down the rabbit hole of targeted nutritional therapy, biochemistry, and alternative treatments until we slid out the other side.  Recovery! Along that road less travelled, I’ve learned a few things, from where […]

What time is it?

What time is it?

For those of you that have been following my blog, you are all probably aware that a year ago Anthony had OCD as a result from PANDAS/PANS.  His obsessions were trash, trash trucks and cleaning.  And then he added telling time to his obsessions.  I wasn’t aware that knowing the time of the day, constantly, […]

Reaching The Summit

Reaching The Summit

Back in January I wrote about biomed seeming like a hike up a long mountain.   And how sometimes we get taken off the comfortable path we have been on for awhile, and find a detour. 2013 was all about going on what felt like a detour. We were busy figuring out about PANDAS and why Anthony’s […]

So very very proud!  Anthony is the one wearing the blue shirt on the red bike.  This was at his first BMX practice.  He is loving it!        

Working for Milestones

Working for Milestones

It seems from the moment your child is born, we are looking for milestones.  That moment your child looks up at you and smiles.  When they start crawling, walking….. their first word. When Autism happens to your child, milestones mean even more.  We start to celebrate ones that the “typical” parent probably doesn’t even think […]
