In part 1 of this 2 part series, I promised you that I would summarize the value and function of each mineral, so that is exactly what I am going to do. By reading over these descriptions, you can form ideas as to which ones you or your child might be deficient in and which ones you might have a sufficient amount of.Read More
All adverse reactions to foods cause inflammation in the body. Food sensitivities and allergies cause the gut lining to be inflamed, which subsequently makes it hard for vitamins and minerals to be properly absorbed. Inflammation is behind all illness.Read More
Her observations of reactions to foods i.e. symptoms, starting in the womb, are quite fascinating.
Don’t we often wonder why our babies kick us or have the hiccups when in the womb? And why do our babies become agitated shortly after we feed them?
When your child is not sleeping soundly, behaving well, concentrating in school, or is experiencing colic, constipation, eczema, recurrent ear infections or asthma, your child’s body is signalling to you that aspects of his or her environment are not agreeing with him or her; they may have a food sensitivity or allergy.Read More
Like essential fatty acids and magnesium, zinc is one of the top deficiencies in today’s children. Zinc is probably involved in more body functions than any other mineral. This post outlines 10 functions of zinc, 25 signs of deficiency and what to do if you think you or your child are deficient.Read More
A deficiency of magnesium causes our bodies to release more histamine, which increases severity of allergic symptoms i.e. coughing, congestion, irritability, fatigue, and muscle spasms. The more dairy that you or your child consumes, the more magnesium is needed. A deficiency in magnesium interferes with the transmission of nerve and muscle impulses, causing irritability and nervousness. Magnesium is a sedative, meaning it calms the nerves and muscles and is helpful with hyperactivity and insomnia.Read More
Witness the domino effect. High stress = weakened adrenal glands = increased cortisol levels = high inflammation in the body = increased reactions to food, all of which result in harm to the intestinal lining. In high-stress situations, it may only take a few foods to create a symptom.
Older children with multiple food sensitivities or allergies (over 30) often have weakened adrenal glands. The adrenal glands produce hormones such as cortisone and epinephrine, which help to prevent or decrease the intensity of reactions to food.
importance of nutrition prior to conceiving and once a baby is conceived.

There have been numerous studies demonstrating the value of nutritional supplements but, unfortunately, they do not get the press that the less accurate studies do. Here are some of the results of these studies:Read More
This little girl started having the popsicles and within 4-5 days, I noticed dramatic improvements in her behaviour. She was able to maintain eye contact with me and hold a discussion, articulate her words much more clearly, did not have any random outbursts, and showed interest in exercise. The results were as incredible as the look of joy that I saw in her parents’ eyes; a perfect reminder as to why I love what I do.Read More
In 1987, scientists discovered a significant link between increased incidence of childhood cancer and close proximity to high tension power lines and electronic devices. The majority of us have heard of the link between brain tumours and cell phones. Women exposed to x-rays in the first 3-5 weeks of pregnancy are at a higher risk of miscarriage or delivering a baby with birth defects. Exposure between the 8th and 15th week can cause brain damage in the baby. These are obviously serious implications.Read More
