I have not posted in a while due to my incredibly busy schedule. I started back to work full time last semester after a semester off and we are now back into the swing of things for fall. I have decided to volunteer this season to be my son’s AYSO 10-U soccer coach (with no soccer experience whatsoever)! It has really started to get fun though as the games begin and it keeps me off my couch–and computer–on two weeknight evenings and Saturdays! The kids also just started Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, which they love. It’s the first organized sport that my daughter has tried in over two years, which is a big step–she’s feeling so much better and we have hope that she is going to be completely healed for good! She’s still taking all of her meds/supplements but our hope is to wean her off in the near future. We also have come to the realization that we must replace our wood floors and look into the walls in the kitchen so the cupboards are coming down and we are preparing for a pretty decently-sized remodel. We got our ERMI mold test back, and I will go into more detail about that another time.
I bought a couple new books that I wanted to add here. The first, “Brain Maker,” by David Perlmutter, MD, is a fascinating look at the gut microbiome and how it affects both our physical and mental health.
The second, “Healing the New Childhood Epidemics,” by Kenneth Bock, MD and Cameron Stauth, will open your eyes to a different way of looking at autism, ADHD, asthma, and allergies, four common childhood epidemics that continue to rise at alarming rates.
I hope that you will take the time to read these amazing books.
Have a happy fall season!!
