Generalized Dystonia, Neurological Movement Disorder Norma Miller Testimony After Eating Dark Chocolate

The testimonies I hear about Xocai Healthy Chocolate products continue to amaze me.  My family has been eating Xocai Healthy Chocolate Co. Chocolate Products for over six years.  We noticed a profound difference when our autistic son started eating the products.  I personally noticed significant improvement of symptoms of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue as well as improved blood work.

I am so impressed by Norma Millers’ story that I am...

Thoughts On Autism, Vaxxed The Movie, The ABC News Interview Big Pharma Does Not Want You To See And Nutrition

HAVE YOU BEEN TOUCHED BY AUTISM?  US TOO. As a mom of a 23 year old autistic son, I was very interested to see the new Movie Vaxxed that is out in select Regal Cinema Theaters.  This was the movie that was banned from the Tribeca Film Festival after Robert De Niro was pressured to pull the movie.  Del Bigtree, producer of Vaxxed has been doing Q & A meetings after movies when it is first showing in a new market.  Along with Del Bigtree, Dr.  It is about a whistleblower and fraud that was committed at the CDC with the MMR vaccine study.   This movie is NOT an anti-vax movie.  Until they can make the MMR vaccine safe, simply having the measles, mumps and rubella immunizations individually is a smart way to go according to the Vaxxed movie. I was able to see...

Cacao Percentage On Chocolate Label Is NOT Reliable Guide of Flavanol Amounts In Dark Chocolates

Cacao Percentage On Chocolate Label Is NOT Reliable Guide of Flavanol Amounts In Dark Chocolates

  Now that the word is out from the National Confectioners Association’s Chocolate Council that flavanol content in chocolate may have important cardiovascular effects, people are looking for high flavanol chocolate and are finding it difficult if not impossible to find.  In fact, we could not find this in any major retailers brick and mortar stores or online.  We have heard from the media over the years that the cacao percentage in chocolate is what is most important for chocolate. Now we find that flavanols in chocolate vary based on how the raw cacao seed is handled. According to the National Confectioners Association Chocolate Council, “Though flavanols are abundant in the fresh, raw cacao seed, how the seed is handled from tree to finished...

How Does A Family Deal With Autism Spectrum Disorder Mood Swings In The Teenager Or Adult

How Does A Family Deal With Autism Spectrum Disorder Mood Swings In The Teenager Or Adult

I am a mom of three boys. My oldest child is autistic. Although I love my children, I must say that having children with disabilities can be a struggle. I can’t imagine life without my son and I am thankful for all of my children every day.  It is just that the life of a family touched by autism is different.  Autism Spectrum Disorder, including aspergers, affect many families and that is why I feel it is so important to share how my sons autism mood swings were controlled simply by changing his diet. As long as I can remember, my son struggled with severe mood swings, I am sure in part because some of the medication he would take would wear off causing side effects. After a while, we had tried so many medications to lessen these side effects but instead...

More Reasons To Eat Dark Chocolate In 2016

Did you know that not all chocolate is candy? Yep, this wonderful tasty treat that most of us crave can actually be good for you too. The key is to make sure you are eating cold pressed chocolate as close to raw as possible. I eat healthy chocolate every day. You may have heard about antioxidants in the last year. They seem to be all over the news. Antioxidants and flavonoids are found in cold pressed chocolate. In fact, raw cacao is a high antioxidant superfood. Antioxidants are found in fruits and vegetables and is likely why our parents always told us to eat our fruits and vegetables. In a perfect world we should all be eating 8-10 servings of fruits and vegetables every day. If you are not meeting this goal, consider incorporating healthy chocolate into your...

Has Your Family Struggled With The Effects Of Autism, Aspergers, ADHD or ADD Like Ours?

Has Your Family Struggled With The Effects Of Autism, Aspergers, ADHD or ADD Like Ours?

[vop id=”1″ video=”” ] Saying that our family was touched by autism seems like an understatement. It feels more like we were plunged headfirst into the autism spectrum without much understanding of what was about to happen.  It started out that our son was a little slow in reaching his milestones.  Our first-born son would have a Patent Ductus Arteriosis ligation when he was 2 years old at Lutheran General, a Chicago area hospital.  He would develop unusual symptoms following the surgery including subcutaneous emphysema where it felt like his whole body was filled with rice crispies cereal under his skin.  It was so severe that he did not even resemble the same child for nearly a month.  After this experience his issues seemed to magnify....

Induced Labor Increases Chance of Autism Says Study Published in JAMA Pediatrics

An interesting study linking autism and induced or augmented delivery was just published on August 12th in the recent edition of JAMA Pediatrics.

Why Do Special Needs School Age Children Require an IEP With The Local School District?

Why Do Special Needs School Age Children Require an IEP With The Local School District?

As I prepare for the annual IEP meeting tomorrow for my child,  I thought I would share some important information about the process and why it is important to your child’s education goals.  An IEP is known as an Individualized Education Program,and is vital to protect the rights of special needs children and their families.  It is important that any child that is school age, with a disability or delay or receiving any type of special needs assistance or accomodation have this plan in place.  As a mother of a child with autism and one with mild cerebral palsy, I cannot emphasize enough the importance of an IEP. An IEP must be updated annually in most cases.  The IEP will state the goals for the child and any accommodations they may need to meet those goals....

3 Easy Ways For North Port Kids to Get More Antioxidants For Improved Health

3 Easy Ways For North Port Kids to Get More Antioxidants For Improved Health

Because antioxidants are associated with cell damage and cell death, parents in the Boca Grande, North Port, and Sarasota area often mistakenly assume that antioxidants are only important for adults and the elderly, those with more visible cell death and damage. But that simply isn’t the case. Everyone needs antioxidants for their health, even children. Antioxidants work their magic by protecting our cells from free radical damage. Free radicals are a by-product of the normal metabolic processes that take place in everyone’s bodies (even our kids!) all the time. Free radicals may also occur from pollutants, such as cigarette smoke, or when the body breaks down certain medicines. Free radicals damage cells through oxidation. You may remember from...
