Phenol and Salicylate Sensitivities: How Foods Impact Your Child’s Behaviour and How to Fix the Root Cause

phenol-and-salicylate-sensitivities-how-foods-impact-your-childs-behaviour-and-how-to-fix-the-root-cause

The amount of diets circling around out there is overwhelming. How do we even begin to determine which diet is best for our children’s symptoms? Diet is one of the most important parts of a healing journey, but there’s so much information out there that it's difficult to sift through which one is best.

That’s why I wanted to share an interview from the Autism, ADHD and Sensory Processing Summit with Julie Matthews, CNC. Julie takes us through why dietary intervention is necessary for our children, how to better understand dietary needs and we dive deeply into phenols and salicylates.

How to Support your Child Academically at Home Without the Battles

How to Support your Child Academically at Home Without the Battles

I don’t know about you, but the last 18+ months have been tricky for our children (and parents) who have had to change up their normal learning environments. I’ve heard from a number of parents and have felt this pain point myself. Even before all of the shifts in the last couple of years, helping our children with homework can sometimes be quite the battle.

Today on the My Child Will Thrive Podcast, I sat down with public school teacher and CEO for Study Help, Aimee Buckley. Aimee is a veteran school teacher with over 20 years of experience teaching students with mild to moderate disabilities. Aimee saw a need for children to receive help from qualified teachers outside of the normal classroom hours. In this interview, Aimee takes us through her recommendations for creating a happy homework environment, how to support our kids without the battles and what to do if you just need help. I hope you enjoy this episode with Aimee as much as I did!

Finding the Confidence to Take Charge of Your Family’s Health

Finding the Confidence to Take Charge of Your Family's Health

Whether you’re at the beginning of your family's health revolution or somewhere in the middle, we all can use a little pep in our step or help to keep going. I know I definitely needed it! Finding the confidence to take charge of our family’s health and wellbeing is one of the toughest parts of being parents, so finding resources that can help us every step of the way is so important.

That’s why I am sharing this podcast today with Carla Atherton. Carla has written a wonderful book and has many resources for families around your Family Health Revolution. In this interview, she talks to us all about her own awakening to her family’s health revolution and what those steps can look like for you. We talk about how to reclaim your family’s health and she shares why she wrote such a comprehensive book and guide for all parents out there. You won’t want to miss Carla’s episode and make sure you grab her book in the links below!

Holistic Parenting: Parenting Healthy Brains and Bodies in a Changing World

Holistic Parenting: Parenting Healthy Brains and Bodies in a Changing World

I’m sure you’ve heard the words “holistic parenting” and “inflammation”, but do we really know what they mean? I know I have spent so much time learning about the ins and outs of my child’s health, but sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming. That’s why I love bringing on guests to the My Child Will Thrive Podcast who can help us learn about the world of holistic health and wellness without feeling totally stuck in the process.

So I’m excited to share with you today the knowledge and the amazing energy that emulates from Dr. Madiha Saeed. Dr. Saeed takes us through holistic parenting, inflammation in our children’s health and how our children make decisions (and how we can help them make BETTER ones!) We also talked about her new book, “The Holistic Rx for Kids,” that just came out. Dr. Saeed is a joy to learn from and I can’t wait for you to hear her episode today!

Permission to get unstuck

Permission to get unstuck

Who here is feeling exhausted? I know it’s not just me! Raising children with mental health and neurodevelopmental challenges is often a dark and silent journey. Our kids have resources and support for their journey, but where do we gain the support we need to be our best self and caretaker?

I know it feels almost impossible to focus on our own health when we’re so distracted with helping our children with their healing journey, but this episode is your permission to do just that.

I brought Kris Rice on the My Child Will Thrive Podcast to share with us her tools and resources she created along her journey over the last 10 years of working with and raising a child with mental health struggles. I hope you enjoy this podcast and give yourself permission to get unstuck!

Using Music to Optimize Your Child’s Brain

Using music to optimize your child’s brain

As parents, we’re all looking for the best therapies for our kids. Whether it’s finding the best doctor to work with, finding ways to improve development of their brain or digging into what small changes might help with regulating emotions and the autonomic nervous system (along with many more.) I started the Autism, ADHD and Sensory Processing Disorder Summit as a way for parents to learn from practitioners all over the world with different modalities that might spark some light for your child.

One modality that is enjoyed by adults and children alike is music. That’s why I brought on Alex Doman who is the founder of Advanced Brain Technologies and The Listening Program. Alex’s family has been working in this field for generations and he is passionate about using music to heal your child’s brain. In this interview that I’m sharing with you from the Autism, ADHD and Sensory Processing Disorder Summit, Alex explains to us the power of sound to shape the brain, to shape emotion, to influence learning and behavior.

I hope you enjoy this episode with Alex Doman!
