Customers are always asking …how can they help their child regain energy, feel better, and lose unwanted weight? Below are some smart ideas for parenting that work.
*Help your child make breakfast. A child can not learn on a breakfast filled with sugary cereals, waffles, sodas, and bottled orange juice. Brain-boosters include giving our gut microbiome what it needs. One can make bone broth vegetable soups to boost brain-gut communication, or add in fermented foods. Cashew yogurt (non-dairy) with blueberries is one of my favorites. Probiotic rich foods ensure a normal brain-gut axis. (To Live By)
*All cells react to our environment, inside and out. Preparing your child for life doesn’t mean increasing their risk for harmful EMF exposure, that can be linked to serious illnesses. Avoid giving your child a smartphone. In your neighborhood avoid 5G wireless antennas (in the making) which haven’t been tested yet for human safety. These may cause more problems to our cell metabolism and harm our DNA.
*Teach your children to improve their moods and anxiety issues with exercise and other self-care modalities such as meditation. If a child has been diagnosed with OCD or ADD it doesn’t necessarily mean a prescription for life. Parents need to agree which forms of intervention can prove helpful in the long run. (To Live By)
*With the prevalence of obesity in schools, more children than ever find themselves sick and lethargic. As a parent, you can reduce insulin resistance and inflammation by helping to reduce a child’s brain fatigue. Become aware of the propaganda your child is being fed. To do this, you can watch the input your child typically watches. Then, avoid buying violent video games, and long hours watching television. Make time for at least 15 to 20 minutes of sunshine-time with your child. Include healthy fats such as avocados at dinnertime instead of sugary desserts. Avoid low-fat and non-fat processed foods! The benefits of stepping in and making a few simple changes can improve sleep patterns, (melatonin production) moods, weight, and test scores.
