Memorable Moments:
”Constipation is NOT normal. It can definitely contribute to your child’s symptoms…Having a bowel movement, that’s the body’s way of removing toxins, so if we’re not pooping, those toxins are building up in the body.”

”The gut-brain connection is so incredibly huge.”

”If constipation is building up and you have a breakdown in the gut, that is driving inflammation in the body..which in turn can drive those ADHD symptoms.”

”When dysregulation is happening constantly and it’s becoming more frequent…that’s when we need to really start asking questions.”

”Remember, your child is not giving you a hard time. They’re having a hard time.”

”If you are feeling like, ‘How are we going to go another day like this? This is not sustainable,' then it’s time to put your investigative hat on and start doing something different.”

”If your child has bad breath, we need to figure out what’s going on in the body that  is driving that because that too is not normal.”

“The healing starts with us…with the parents.”

”Our kids deserve to feel better, and if they’re eating that way, they probably have symptoms that are coming from that…Their body is telling you that you need to do something, so let’s just start taking those baby steps.”
