Three Myths About Healing Diets

Three Myths About Healing Diets

We interviewed Jess Sherman, Registered Holistic Nutritionist, about three myths about healing diets and how to focus on what really matters. You may have heard that changing your child’s diet can help them calm down, focus, learn better, sleep better and feel better. Maybe you’ve tried gluten-free or GAPS or Paleo, or maybe you’ve been scared away from this approach or aren’t sure if it’s worth it. In this webinar, holistic nutritionist and author Jess Sherman cleared the confusion and explained why food is such a powerful tool and how to avoid getting confused by contradictory information. Jess explained away the three most common misconceptions that discourage families from exploring food as a tool. She also helped us understand how to leverage four nutritional concepts to help kids self-regulate better. This webinar will be helpful to you if you are a parent or practitioner new to the idea of using food as a therapeutic tool or if you’ve been at…

Sick Buildings and Chronic Illness

Sick Buildings and Chronic Illness

Sick Buildings and Chronic Illness

We interviewed Alex Stadtner, President and Senior Consultant of Healthy Building Science, about sick buildings and chronic illness. A variety of factors make our indoor environment 2-5x more toxic than our outdoor environment. Given that many Americans spend as much as 90% of our lives indoors, it’s important to know how sick buildings contribute to chronic illnesses. Join us in this webinar as we learn how the following can negatively affect our health: Mold VOCs Dirty electricity EMFs Geopathic stress LEDs Cleaning products Smart meters Fluorescent lights Formaldehyde from plywood Flame-retardant furniture Asbestos Lead Mercury Microwave ovens PVC Radioactivity from granite and quartz Please note that you will be asked to enter your email address at the 30-minute mark to finish viewing the video.

What's Making Our Children Sick?

What’s Making Our Children Sick?

What's Making Our Children Sick?

We interviewed Michelle Perro MD, co-author of What’s Making Our Children Sick?: How Industrial Food Is Causing an Epidemic of Chronic Illness, and What Parents (and Doctors) Can Do About It. This book explores the links between genetically modified foods (GMOs), glyphosate, and gut health.

Creating a Sensory Environment

Creating a Sensory Environment

Creating a Sensory Environment

We interviewed Andy Roussey, President of Experia USA, about creating a sensory environment. Sensory equipment is a vital tool in helping to treat a variety of sensory disorders in both adults and children. Creating a sensory environment can help with: Attention Calming Communication skills Emotional development Fine motor skills Gross motor skills Hand-eye coordination Memory improvement Social interaction Speech & language development Transitions Children with autism, ADD/ADHD, developmental delays, apraxia, dyspraxia, learning disabilities, speech disorders and Sensory Processing Disorder often have problems with many of the above-mentioned issues. Because these children often have retained reflexes that can be a result of neurological damage from birth trauma or other causes of neurological damage such as environmental toxicity, Please note that you will be asked to enter your email address at the 30-minute mark to finish viewing the video.

Vagus Nerve Healing

Vagus Nerve Healing

Vagus Nerve Healing

We interviewed Stanley Rosenberg about vagus nerve healing. The vagus nerve, also known as cranial nerve ten (denoted by the Roman numeral X), is the longest nerve in the body, running from the brain stem through the eyes, heart, lungs, and digestive tract. Inhibition of the vagus nerve is known as “fight or flight”, a state in which the sympathetic nervous system is activated. Because the vagus nerve connects so many different organs and symptoms, its inhibition can lead to commonly known symptoms of anxiety and/or fear such as: Pupil dilation Increased heart rate Shallow breathing Digestion inhibition Secretion of stress hormones such as epinephrine and norepinephrine Increased blood glucose Cranial-nerve dysfunction, including cranial nerve X (the vagus nerve), can contribute to the symptoms of individuals with: Autism ADD/ADHD Sensory Processing Disorder Developmental delays Learning disabilities Speech delays Anxiety Depression Trauma Migraines Asthma Poor digestion Irritability Difficulty sleeping Poor social engagement Withdrawal Stanley discussed how nervous system dysfunction can lead…

Cranial Neurosequencing Technique

Cranial Neurosequencing Technique

Cranial Neurosequencing Technique

We interviewed Lois Laynee about the cranial neurosequencing technique that she created. Every dysfunction starts with an interruption or alteration within cranial-nerve connections, which can lead to retained reflexes in a child. These retained reflexes mean that movement sequences that are programmed into a baby’s development in utero and during the first year or so of life are not inhibited; thus, they are retained. Children with retained reflexes are more likely to have developmental delays in gross-motor skills and fine-motor skills, which can lead to a host of other problems later on such as neurodevelopmental disorders, speech delays, social delays, emotional delays and problems with academic performance. Cranial-nerve dysfunction can contribute to the symptoms of individuals with: Autism ADD/ADHD Sensory Processing Disorder Developmental delays Learning disabilities Speech delays Anxiety Depression Trauma Migraines Asthma Poor digestion Irritability Difficulty sleeping Poor social engagement Withdrawal Lois discussed how gentle movement patterns of development that are part of the cranial neurosequencing technique can activate…

Quantum Reflex Integration

Quantum Reflex Integration

Quantum Reflex Integration

We interviewed Bonnie Brandes about Quantum Reflex Integration (QRI), which can re-pattern both primitive and lifelong reflexes for the development of efficient neurological processing. Primitive reflexes play an important role in the development of the neurological system in all aspects of cognition, behavior and movement. For children with neurodevelopmental disorders, a group of unintegrated or undeveloped reflexes, otherwise known as retained reflexes, can not only affect learning, behavior and function but also play a large part in: Autism ADHD Sensory Processing Disorder Learning disabilities Dyslexia PANS/PANDAS Cerebral palsy Developmental delays QRI is the first program to use cold laser therapy and acu-reflex points to address primitive reflex integration of retained reflexes. Watch this webinar replay to learn more how primitive reflex integration can help with improved symptoms in behavior, movement and cognition.
