There are so many tools, articles, and connections to be made between our perspective of what healthy is and how to implement healthy options in our daily routines that are not only easy to incorporate but effective at changing the way we view our well being. Here's to healing our perspectives and nourishing our bodies.
Have you considered protecting your neurotransmitters? This vegan lozenge is actually a coenzyme. A biologically active form, or methylated form, of B12 which protects nerve tissue and brain cells. Connective tissue issues can create a host of problems when it comes to nerves, nerve pain. We want to protect those to minimize the amount of medications we induce into our bodies. I will never negate the need for medication, however the less medications we have to metabolize, the more effort our bodies can reserve for more important autonomic functions that you may or may not also deal with. I have purchased this particular brand at the recommendation of a dear friend for almost a year now, and this appears to be the cleanest supplement, and it is cheapest at amazon.com. Dosages are clearly indicated on the bottle, and while I do not believe there to be any contraindications with any medications, please always consult with your physician or pharmacist to cross reference with your personal list of medications.

Constipation and children
I realize every organism is different, however this is a simple solution that can be tailored to your child's individual needs. Did you know that Miralax can be habit forming, and there is no research on the effects of long term use of polyethylene glycol 3350, the active ingredient in Miralax, the most common laxative prescribed by doctors to children with constipation. We already have enough issues, I prefer to approach our issues with as much nutritional healing as possible.We battle constipation and a few other issues as I'm sure every household does. I've found an effective blend to help with eczema and constipation. We fortunately do not have any food sensitivities, so I may have a little more freedom with our blends than most, but what I use may only be restrictive to some. If you have a child that is holding their bowel movements and they are hard to pass, consider pumpkin! It's a great source f fiber, potassium, vitamin c, vitamin b, and is antioxidant rich. Flaxseed oil is a great source of omega 3 fatty acids which are great for your GI tract overall. This is also the only type of fat that our bodies can not produce, so supplementing with a quality omega 3 source is a huge part of a balanced and healthy diet, and you system overall. This is the oil we use to heal eczema from the inside out. These fats effect everything from hormone balance, to skin issues, to heart health. We use an organic, unfiltered oil to ensure the properties of the oil and omega 3 fats have not been denatured in any way. We also use frozen bananas for a creamy consistency. If you ever try to make those jamba smoothies at home and they don't come out right, frozen bananas! We let our bananas get a healthy spotting before cutting and freezing to make sure the bananas have the most immune system boosting power. The brown spots indicate the increasing presence of TNF, Tumor Necrosis Factor, a cancer fighting substance that improves how our immune system cells communicate with each other. I use a little manuka honey for it's immune and GI boosting properties. Besides it makes it taste like your drinking Thanksgiving every day! Ready for the recipe?
1/3 frozen ripe banana
cinnamon to taste
1/4 cup + pumpkin puree
1Tbps. (approx) Manuka honey
one serving of flaxseed oil
fill with desired amount of milk, or milk substitute.
