The Good (Heavy Metals) The Bad (Toxins) and The Special (Autistics)

Combining 3 weeks with 3 great articles, although quite different.

The first article (GOOD) is about the importance of getting the right minerals for our best health.  It is close to my heart because of my firm belief in the Melaleuca vitamins.  The high absorption rate of the  Melaleuca’s  minerals is what sets them apart from ALL other vitamins, and the process is patented.  I find it interesting that this blog article is from Interactive Metronome–but eating healthy is also part of having good neuron transmission going on!!  So check it out!

Another interest of mine is the toxic chemicals (BAD) that are all around and through us.  Again, using Melaleuca products immensely reduces our exposure to toxic chemicals.  This article will give you some food for thought!

And the SPECIAL! is a swwet article about the joy of working with children on the spectrum.  It dosen’t get any better than this!

Hoping this IMproves your day, knowing that we can supplement, get rid of toxins and enjoy those different from us!

Do Genetics Play a Role in Disabilities?

Wouldn’t it be awesome to wave a magic wand and be able to determine the WHY of ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, Tourettes, and a myriad of other conditions?  How about genetics?  Immunizations?  Toxic chemicals?  Processed food?  Truly there are studies on all these possibilities.  And likely some amount of issue from all of them.  But the why doesn’t change the fact.  However

We really can do something about our cognition :)!

We Are What We Eat!

After yet another battle with a teen foster daughter over my refusal to buy Mountain Dew, here comes information to support my cause.  I do let her get Mountain Dew when we are out, but refuse to buy it for the home. We needn’t become ridiculous,, but every little bit that we can change positively in our diets can have long term positive effects.  Also there is a lot of evidence that diet can make a huge difference for children with ADHD, Autism, Sensory issues and other special needs.
