A Wake up Story

I came across this video on facebook today and I thought I would share it with those of you who may not have seen it yet.

If you have time please check out this website as well. Healthy Child Healthy World I myself have started moving away from the more traditional. We recently took Baboo off of all of his ADHD meds and I put him on all natural supplements and I am very pleased to say he is doing very well. I received a wonderful report from his teacher yesterday. We have spent the last two years bouncing from one medication to the other with no success. I know that this is not for everyone, each child is different and each child responds differently to every treatment. But for Baboo, this is working, his ticks are gone, he's gaining weight again, he is focusing and doing very well.
With everything going on I am taking small steps to try to make our environment more healthy for all of us. There are so many things that we can't protect our children from and being able to at least control some of what they are exposed to at home gives me some peace of mind. My kids get upset because I usually make a home cooked meal at least 4 times a week and they just want frozen foods or to go get fast food. Now don't get me wrong, on occasion we definitely indulge. But buying actually fruits, vegetables and meat is actually cheaper than processed. I know that in this busy time it is not practical for everyone. I have found tons of wonderful recipes on line to make crock pot meals, $5 dinners, things that make life a little healthier and simpler. OK so I'm stepping down now. Please take a minute to review the video and pass it along to others if you'd like.

Just watched the video--powerful. And I completely agree with your post. We cook most meals, avoid process foods, etc. I take whole foods supplements and my health has improved! Thank you for the post. I am going to repost the video.

I am happy you found natural supplements to work. I think it's so sad how our food sources are tainted...or poisoned! I think more need to get up on a soapbox so we can change this. I can't stand the thought of children and adults eating horrible things. Don't get me started on fake sugars!

Stopping by to say hello with Friday Follow. Good for you for trying something different and allowing time to see if it would work for your family. I hope it continues to work and you only receive positive reports from school from now on.
