After acquiring a BA in Sociology, I worked in the commercial insurance industry for 10 years. It wasn't until I had two children, both with multiple food sensitivities and allergies, that I came to understand the power of food.
In 1999, I gave birth to my first daughter, Taylor. Within 24 hours of her arrival, Taylor's reactions to foods became apparent. As a newborn, she experienced bouts of projectile vomiting, colic, and constipation. As a toddler, Taylor became extremely constipated, to the point where she was in pain for the better part of 6 months. As a young girl, mood swings began to surface.
As a result of extensive research, I learned that food sensitivities and allergies were the culprits and that Taylor, in fact, had problems with all of the common allergens.
In 2002, I gave birth to my second daughter, Paige. Paige also had food sensitivities! I approached the raising of this child very differently, as a result of my research on nutrition. I also tested what I had learned with Taylor, on Paige, to see if the teachings applied to more than one child. I was thrilled to find that the knowledge I had gained was sound!
Currently, Taylor can eat any food that she wants to without any major repercussions. In addition, I now have two extremely healthy and happy children. When Taylor has a cold, she has the sniffles or a cough for a day and then it's over. Neither daughter has ever had an infection or been prescribed drugs. I need no further proof of the power of food.
The Energetics of Nutrition - The environment in which our food is grown, harvested, prepared, served and eaten all impact our body, mind, heart and spirit. Knowing this, we can eat consciously, with intention, so that we may begin to address the parts of ourselves that long to be fed, long to be nourished, and long to be loved.
Optimizing Your Child’s Day at School Through Nutrition - From reading my other blog posts, you may know that I am not a proponent of feeding your child what everyone else is feeding their children. Rather, I recommend daring to be different. As a result, the ideas I share with you in this post do not contain chemicals, dairy or wheat.
Why Are the Children of Today so Sick? - We are experiencing the sickest generation of children in the history of mankind. Unfortunately, I can guarantee that the next generation will be even sicker – unless you are a family that is doing things differently than the majority.
