1. Measles – should you worry?

    February 6, 2015

    With all the hoopla surrounding the recent outbreak, I thought it would be a good time to talk about the Measles.  I have had several parents contact me, worried about their child contracting this disease.  Many of our clients believe that their child had an adverse reaction to vaccines and decided to discontinue the recommended […]

  2. Picky Eating

    February 2, 2015

    If you have ever had a picky eater you know how frustrating it can be!  For most of us, mealtimes are a time to share, relax, socialize, and enjoy each other.  When you have a child that is a picky eater, mealtime is a nightmare!  You literally will dance on your head, bribe, cajole, barter, […]

  3. What’s happening to our children?

    October 24, 2014

    This is the final blog in our series, “What’s happening to our children?”, when 1 in 6 has a developmental disability.  I have currently covered some of the major areas (dairy, gluten, additives/preservatives, chemicals, and vaccines) that I have seen that impact our children’s ability to function as they should.  If you have a child, […]

  4. Vaccines – Your Choice

    October 21, 2014

    Vaccines are a hot topic of debate, especially in the Autism community.   I have encountered many families over the years that revealed to me that their child lost skills after vaccinations. Some of these children have diagnoses of Autism, Childhood Apraxia of Speech/Congenital Motor and Speech Apraxia, Epilepsy, and Sensory Processing Disorder.  This is part […]

  6. Additives, Preservatives, and Dyes – Oh My!

    At this point, you are probably thinking I’ve lost it!  Or asking why I keep posting about food-related topics, when our focus is on children.  The answer is simple.  Something, or some things are contributing to the increased number of kids with developmental disabilities (CDC reports 1 in 6).  Fifteen years ago the majority of […]

  7. Gluten Sensitivity

    September 30, 2014

    Nothing says comfort like a big plate of pasta or some warm bread before your meal.  For those of us that suffer from gluten sensitivity, bread and pasta made with wheat can wreck havoc on our emotional well being and health.  So you ask, what is gluten anyway?  Isn’t this gluten-free diet the latest craze […]

  8. Duped by Dairy

    September 26, 2014

    Ahhh dairy, “it does a body good” right?  Maybe if you’re a calf!  I’m a “why” person, always have been.  My parents didn’t much care for it when I was growing up, nor did my teachers when I was in college.  I will tell you however, it has served me well as a mom and […]
