Heal Your Child Summit 2018

I am super excited to be able to share the following information with you!  Our children are now sicker than we are – over 50% of the children in the United States has a chronic illness and over 45% of those have multiple illnesses!  This MUST stop!  

In order for that to happen parents must be equipped with information to turn their children’s health around.  Which is what the Heal Your Child Summit 2018 is all about!!!

It is an honor to be a part of this wonderful movement to empower parents and equip them with ways to take charge of their child’s health.  Connecting with Health Professionals, Researchers, Community Activists, and Thought Leaders from Around the World to Share Their Most Strategic Secrets and Resources to Parents of Children with Chronic Illness is at the core of my mission.   Please join me and others who are on that journey to restore health in their child through natural methods.  This is a FREE online summit with an abundance of resources, strategies and practical tips from holistic, natural and, functional perspectives.

HEAL YOUR CHILD – BODY, MIND, HEART, and SOUL

“Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” – WHO

Imagine some of the world’s top experts on Chronic Illness coming together to discuss their #1 HEALING strategies.  And not only are they gathering, but you have a VIP Invitation to this limited space event.  By attending you are able to quickly and easily implement their strategies for Empowering yourself with strategies, resources, and evidence-based research to help you heal your child.

​Well, there is no need to imagine.  This is exactly what’s happening September 17-21, 2018 at the HEAL YOUR CHILD SUMMIT.  But don’t worry if you can’t make it to every live call.  We’ll be recording every moment and taking notes.

I have to warn you though, the purpose of this Summit is not to discuss the latest greatest drug or medical intervention to manage your child’s chronic illness.  We are NOT in the business of diagnosing, treating, or curing disease. We WILL NOT pursue a pill for every ill.  The presenters in this summit are seekers of the truth and function as detectives to help you uncover and understand the ROOT CAUSES of your child’s chronic illness.

Be sure to tune in on Monday, September 17th where I will be presenting: Healing Your Microbiome – Pesky Bugs, or Cute Critters?  Here I will delve into the foundation of creating a microbiome which promotes health and restoration along with strategies to uncover the root of an imbalanced GI tract.  It will be a power-packed day as Dr Ritamarie Loscalzo delves into Genetics and tackles the myths surrounding genetics: Destiny of Dis-Ease or Opportunity for Health and Prevention. 

You will also want to tune into my friend and functional medicine colleague Dr. Neil Paulvin as he provides insights on craniosacral therapy and opening up healing opportunities through removing obstructions with chiropractic manipulations.   Every day is filled with great information, I am so excited to be sharing this with you and look forward to seeing you there!

Remember to help me spread the word!

Living Well with Autism

Did you know that in 2014, approximately 1 in every 68 children were identified as having autism spectrum disorder (ASD)?  Today that number is even more disturbing 🙁   How about that this prevalence is more common in boys than girls, with 1 in 42 boys and 1 in 189 girls effected?  More current figures estimate prevalence to be closer to 1 in 45 children ages 3 through 17. (This equates to 2% of children in the U.S. who are living with autism!)

No matter what the statistics say, individuals with an autism diagnosis and their families deserve the basic right to maximize the quality of life and live in a world where they are always respected and valued.

Autism does not discriminate and families and individuals of all cultures, ethnicities, and socioeconomic status are affected. The specific cause is currently unknown, however, it is likely to actually be a number of different developmental brain disorders that produce similar presentations. (Most cases of autism are thought to result from a combination of genetic predisposition and triggering environmental events which influence early stages of brain development.)

During this experience, you will finally have the chance to learn holistic techniques to reduce symptoms and find out how functional medicine can help make the future look a lot brighter.

The goal for Functional Autism Awareness on Saturday, August 25th at 1:00 pm CDT is to help you or your loved one learn how to best manage an autism diagnosis through functional health approaches.  Hosted by:  Salena Rothenberger, D.PSc, CFMP, CHC  Register here

Debunking Misconceptions of Autism

There are many myths surrounding autism. (For example, the prevalence of autism has been steadily increasing for the last 40 years.

Truth: The rate of autism has increased by 600% in the last 20 years. In 1975, an estimated 1 in 1,500 had autism. In 2014, an estimated 1 in 68 had an autism spectrum disorder.

Another myth blames parenting styles for causing autism. There is no evidence to support this and causes much undue guilt and pain on parents.

Are you aware many brilliant famous minds throughout history are thought to have been on the autism spectrum? 

Some notable figures include:

– Albert Einstein
– Amadeus Mozart
– Sir Isaac Newton
– Michelangelo
– Thomas Jefferson

A well-known name in the autism world is Professor of Animal Science, Temple Grandin. She was diagnosed with autism as a child and is noted as one of the first individuals to publicly share insights about her personal experience of autism. She attributes her ability to think in pictures to helps her solve problems that neurotypical brains might miss.

Functional health approaches are ideal for helping individuals with ASD as the body is viewed as one integrated system rather than a collection of independent organs. By understanding and treating the body as a whole, functional health approaches can help various ranges of abnormalities such as gut imbalances and detoxification issues common in individuals with autism. (Such anomalies often cause the behavioral and mood symptoms of autism.)

We are driven to share the many holistic techniques and benefits functional medicine has to offer as the integrated approach of functional health looks at diet, exercise, detoxification, and supplementation as means to reducing symptoms of autism.

There is no reason you or your family should endure any additional stress. We understand autism comes with enough complications and trying times, and now settling for mediocrity does not have to be your future.

Please invite anyone you feel who can benefit… grandparents, caregivers, and friends are all absolutely welcome!

What is Functional Medicine?

The Way Of The Future
“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will instruct his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.” -Thomas Edison

Approaching health through natural medicine has been a long time coming! While conventional medicine certainly has a place, a functional approach is better suited for chronic conditions and getting to the root of the cause, not just masking it.

Individual-centered care is what sets natural medicine above all else. This integrative, holistic, science-based approach has been noted as the way to health for centuries.

Our goal is to share with you an in-depth look into what it means to approach health from a functional perspective, why it’s our preferred approach, and how it helps, which is why we invite you to attend our next webinar, Why Functional Medicine?, on Saturday, July 14th at 10:00 am CDT.

During this experience, we will discuss the difference between conventional vs functional medicine and which health challenges we effectively support.

We can’t wait to share the future of healthcare with you!

Autoimmune Matrix – Live Training!

The current medical approach to autoimmune disease is masking the symptoms and suppressing the immune system. With this method, it is no surprise that many believe these diseases are beyond our control. However, with the proper protocol of addressing your chemical, physical, and emotional health, you can definitely alter your immune function in your favor. Treatment is possible when treatment is functional!

Why Is This Important?

Health is represented in different forms such as chemical, physical, and emotional and it is imperative to address all of these simultaneously in order to achieve optimal health. However, this is ignored in the current medical model used today. Fortunately, the field of functional medicine closes these gaps and directs patients to truly achieve and sustain wellness.

This is especially apparent with autoimmune diseases as any of these diseases have been written off as something beyond our control even though research supports that most of these complications are results of lifestyle choices. These findings have completely flipped the perspective of those suffering from helpless to empowered to take on the fight against autoimmunity!

Common Misconceptions of Autoimmunity

#1: Autoimmune diseases cannot be reversed.

While genes do come into play with autoimmune diseases, we also have control over how our genes are expressed. According to the field of epigenetics, our environment, lifestyle choices, and dietary habits, all have the ability to turn on certain genes that can cause the development of autoimmune complications. Therefore, research has proven that autoimmune diseases can indeed be reversed with the proper gene expression.

#2: Autoimmune diseases are a product of your genes, not your environment.

Research has supported that environmental factors are responsible for autoimmune diseases. Many things such as climate, toxin exposure, infections, and poor diets can all contribute to the onset of autoimmunity.

#3: Medication is required for any relief.

Although conventional medicine believes the only true weapon against autoimmunity is drugs, research has shown that there are many effective, alternative treatments. These include, but are not limited to, dietary changes, supplementation, and stress management.

#4: Gut health is unrelated to immune health.

A large majority of the immune system is found in the gut! To think of these two health concerns as separate entities is a serious flaw in the conventional medical model used today. In short, in order to heal the immune system, you must heal the gut.

#5: Dietary changes make no difference once you have an autoimmune disorder.

Dietary changes that benefit your gastrointestinal health provide a multitude of benefits for your immune system. Ignoring this fact is irresponsible for the efforts of treating autoimmunity.

#6: Autoimmune complications guarantee a poor quality of life.

While many autoimmune diseases do have complications that one may experience on a regular basis, it does not mean an overall poor quality of life is synonymous with autoimmune conditions. In fact, with the proper treatment and maintenance regimens, many of these complications can subside (or disappear completely) and therefore, you are NOT doomed to a poor quality of life as you may have been led to believe.

#7: It is impossible to alter your immune function.

5 Keys To Restoring Health Naturally!

In case you haven’t noticed we have an epidemic of adverse health among our entire population in the US.  The saddest part is our children are now worse off than their parents 😦  It is very clear how we have been approaching health is not working – it is long past the time we change how we address one of the most precious commodities – life.

familyThis is why I put this presentation together.  I am tired of seeing the suffering and struggles familes are going through as they attempt to overcome chronic, debilitating health issues in their children’s lives and mothers health declining in the process.   I know there are many who have experienced the failures of the conventional model and have sought alternative methods.   Unfortunately, there are many who are still spinning in circles.

It is not sufficient to change out pharma for herbs and expect to overcome chronic health issues – we have to make greater shifts in our approach.  I cover these shifts in this 45 minute seminar – it’s on-demand and available at no charge.   If you are looking to take charge and turn your or a loved ones health around once and for all, this is a must watch presentation.  If you have loved ones struggling despite taking “natural” approaches please share this with them and join me in helping spread health and wellness to everyone across the globe!
