Health First... we have seen so many physically ill children who are in tremendous pain enduring hours of therapy every day. Then, the parents wonder why their children aren’t progressing. To us it seems obvious. How much do you feel like having people demand you perform and learn new things when you’re in bed with the flu? You don’t! You want everyone to get out of your face and leave you alone. Well that’s how our kids feel too.
We believe therapy or school will not be as effective until a child’s health has been somewhat restored. Once they have a healthy foundation, they are able to learn and retain information and your money will be well spent. Just to be clear – we believe therapy is a hugely valuable piece of the recovery process. We just feel there should be an order to things. They may not be ready for 40 hours of ABA per week if they are having diarrhea 6 times a day and they can’t keep themselves from falling asleep at the table.
Drainage Support is Key... we believe that if you begin to detox or chelate your child, you should have support in place for the major organs that get stressed by the removal of the various poisons like: the liver, the kidneys, the lymphatic system, the pancreas, and the thyroid. Also, we think parents should be aware that as you are taking out the poisons, your child’s minerals are also being stripped and the toxins can do additional damage on the way out. Be careful, go slow, and test to be sure your child’s organs are handling the treatment appropriately.
