Diabetes Triggers and Prevention [Podcast Episode #158]

November 17, 2022

There are other physical problems that can accompany autism. One disorder that affects so many children today is diabetes. It is important to recognize the signs of diabetes, know the triggers and understand what you can do to prevent it from happening to your child.

Two Types of Diabetes

There are two types of diabetes: Type I and Type II. Type II diabetes is acquired insulin and leptin resistance and is directly related to poor diet, such as one high in processed foods and refined sugars, combined with a lack of exercise. If you are lucky, you can balance Type II diabetes with the proper diet and exercise with no need for insulin injections.

Type I diabetes is more severe. It is an autoimmune disease caused by the immune system attacking the pancreatic cells that produce insulin. People with Type 1 diabetes need injections of insulin to prevent death. Type I diabetes can be hereditary and its onset can be triggered by many things...

Holiday Eating and Behavior [Podcast Episode #157]

Holiday Eating and Behavior [Podcast Episode #157]

November 3, 2022

The Exponential Harm of Inflammatory and Chemical Laden Foods

Many foods eaten during the holidays such as sugar, gluten, dairy and food dyes will cause exponential harm to your child’s health and behavior. These foods bring common food allergies, inflammation, as well as physical and emotional instability. They are not good for anyone, but children on the autism spectrum and with ADD are particularly sensitive to these chemicals.  Their detoxification systems are not as capable as others to handle them. Their brain cells are particularly vulnerable also.

Symptoms to look for in histamine reactions

Symptoms from histamine triggers are both physical and behavioral. They can vary from itching, hives, rashes, sleep problems, anxiety, extreme mood changes, seizures, digestive issues and diarrhea to increased stimming and more. By reducing stomach acid histamines contribute to further issues with digestion working against your efforts to heal the gut, and is a common reason for GERD or acid back up. Too much histamine released causes histamine intolerance which causes mast cell activation. When this happens our protective mechanisms are broken down and we become hypersensitive to things we ingest or that are in our environment...

What Causes Leaky Gut and How To Regain Your Child’s Health With Autism [Episode 156]

What Causes Leaky Gut and How To Regain Your Child’s Health With Autism [Episode 156]

October 6, 2022

Did you know that the gut affects a lot more than digestion? An ill gut can create symptoms such as poor speech, social connection, anger, depression, anxiousness, an inability to focus and concentrate, and much more.

It’s important to work with the root causes, then once the toxins, pathogens and inflammation are out of the way some of the physical and behavioral symptoms and the acquired allergies can be eliminated. 

Autism can be a symptom, not a diagnosis. It can be a symptom of something underlying such as toxins, pathogens, infections, a compromised immune system, and inflammation in the brain. Many things cause the symptoms of autism. It’s not just one thing.

Gut Healing

Yes, there is much involved in healing leaky gut and if we don’t heal up the lining of the gut that is allowing undigested foods into the bloodstream so the immune system reacts to them then it keeps happening. The gut lining has many reasons why it may have holes like candida, parasites, glyphosate (in Round-Up weed killer that is sprayed onto food crops), mold biotoxins, Lyme. If we don’t get to the core of the issues then it keeps happening. 

Supplements are required along with the right diet for a long enough period of time, and getting the coinfections cleared. We also must support the organs of detoxification and their pathways during this process. It all takes time. Once all of this is done, or greatly reduced, the allergy elimination can work on eliminating the allergies that were acquired during the time when the gut was ill. Make sense?

The MindBody Connection: How To Remove Subconscious Emotions That Keep Us Ill [Episode 155]

The MindBody Connection: How To Remove Subconscious Emotions That Keep Us Ill [Episode 155]

September 22, 2022

The mind fears that the unconscious rage will break out into consciousness. It creates a physical distraction to keep your attention on your body instead of the rage. We rationalize structural pain because it is socially acceptable.

We must acknowledge the psychological basis for the pain to get to the subconscious. The unconscious is terrified by the rage. We must acknowledge and accept the emotions.

Think of your repressed rage and the reasons for it. The conscious speaks to the subconscious. You tell your mind that you know what it’s doing and it’s not needed. By identifying them they reduce the symptoms such as back pain or headaches, etc.

It helps to list all of your reasons for anger, even from childhood. By identifying pressures consciously we reduce it. Find solitude.

The Autism Rate Surges To 1 in 30 Children in the U.S. [Episode 154]

The Autism Rate Surges To 1 in 30 Children in the U.S. [Episode 154]

September 8, 2022

1 in 30 U.S. Kids Diagnosed With Autism in 2020 — What’s Behind the Surge?

The Children’s Health Defense released an article on the surge of autism and the newly updated diagnosis rate for children with autism now being 1 in 30! According to a JAMA Pediatrics research letter published this month by a team of researchers in China, 1 in 30 — 3.49% — of children and adolescents ages 3 to 17 were diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in 2020

The letter also referenced a new study showing a 53% increase in ASD in American young people since 2017.

What is behind the current surge? Sadly, the CDC and other institutions in the medical community do not wish to dig deeply enough, so risk factors have not been adequately considered.

Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., a senior research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, attributes risk factors beyond genetics to the development of the condition.

What You Must Know About Toxins and Die Off During Your Autism Protocol [Episode 153]

What You Must Know About Toxins and Die Off During Your Autism Protocol [Episode 153]

July 21, 2022

Supporting your Child’s Brain & Body with the Detoxification & Die Off Process 

 

Detoxification often begins with the liver. When your child is loaded with toxins, the liver is congested and cannot function properly, creating a variety of physical and emotional symptoms. 

 

Until the liver is supported and working better — and many toxins have been gradually eliminated — the body is not able to handle detoxification or a die-off process. 

Toxins are in the blood, inside most cells, and are in fluids outside the cell, causing the pain, symptoms, and behaviors your child is experiencing. The cells want to get rid of them and a process of detoxification and protocol through nutrition and supplements will help.

 

What is die off? 

 

Die-off is not an illness or infection, it’s a temporary syndrome in response to the process of detoxification. It is the body’s immune response to releasing toxins. As toxins break down or pathogens  die, they can release harmful substances that can exacerbate symptoms. The symptoms from die off generally resolve within 3-7 days. 

 

While some increase in symptoms is common, if your child’s symptoms or behaviors worsen, you can stop or reduce the dose before too many toxins accumulate in the body causing further problems. Failing to intervene in time, can cause extreme behaviors to develop.

Stay With The Process

 

The detoxification and die off process is slow, but there really is no alternative. Give the process time, stay consistent, and keep with the protocol as long as is needed. 

 

Eventually, as toxins and pathogens are eliminated — and as other fundamental issues are corrected through diet and supplements — you will be able to get your child’s body and brain healthy and functioning as normally as possible.

Summer is here! As we begin taking trips, the reality of traveling with children with special needs can bring up some of their challenges. Food to eat on the go is another issue to navigate.

Here are some helpful tips for you to help make your travels more relaxing.

Eating out while traveling

Avoid MSG, aspartame, food dyes, bad fats, sugar, dairy, and gluten. Avoid fast food restaurants due to trans fats, preservatives, and artificial ingredients that disrupt the brain.

Podcast Interview with Dr. Fran Kendall on Mitochondria Disease

Karen Thomas interviews Dr. Fran Kendall, M.D.

Dr. Kendall is a Harvard trained physician with a career of over 25 years specializing in metabolic, mitochondrial, and inherited (genetic) disorders. This interview focuses on mitochondrial disease, a lesser known, but common genetic disorder causing symptoms ranging from seizures, GI problems, fatigue, and Rett Syndrome. Dr. Kendall is an expert in this field. In this interview we discuss what you need to know about mitochondrial disease and what you can do about it...

Mitochondria give cells over 90% of their energy. Without proper energy cells cannot carry out their functions.

Mitochondrial Dysfunction vs Mitochondrial Disease

Mitochondrial dysfunction simply means that the mitochondria are not working correctly. Mitochondrial disease is the term used when the primary cause of mitochondrial dysfunction resides in the mitochondria. Mitochondrial disease is generally genetic. It can be inherited from either or both parents. A special type of mitochondrial disease is caused by mutations on the mitochondrial DNA, and is inherited only from the mother. When the primary cause of mitochondrial dysfunction resides outside the mitochondria, mitochondrial dysfunction is called “secondary” (to something else)...

Autism and Protection From EMF Radiation With Focused Life Force Energy [Episode 149]

Autism and Protection From EMF Radiation With Focused Life Force Energy [Episode 149]

May 19, 2022

Electromagnetic Field Radiation (EMF’s) can sabotage the efforts of your child’s recovery program, unless you protect your child from them.

I have researched a product I wish to share with you to help harmonize the harmful effects of electromagnetic field radiation. I am excited for you to learn about this fascinating technology.

Focused Life Force Energy (FLFE) activates a positive energetic environment that supports the consciousness of your space and provides you with more energy to improve the quality of your life.

  • To expand our consciousness
  • To sleep and meditate more deeply
  • To boost our body’s natural healing ability
  • To increase focus, concentration, creativity
  • To energize our living/working space

Parents report improved ability for their child to do schoolwork and a greater sense of calm.

The EMF Mitigation Program in FLFE 

How it Works:

FLFE’s EMF Mitigation Program changes the way EMFs are influencing our lives.

The FLFE environment and the FLFE EMF Mitigation Program harmonizes and acts in other ways (including using the energetic signature of Shungite) to have EMFs be positive for us, actually supporting us to rise in consciousness...
