Autism Recovery Summit 2

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

April 7th The Autism Recovery Summit’s 2nd online conference will take place for free. For parents, professionals, and loved ones of those with ASD, SPD, or possibly ADHD. If you have ASD keep in mind the goals of those at this Summit are to make us have the easiest life possible. In a world not often created for us. NOT to cure us of our gifts.

I didn’t see the first one and I’m not an affiliate for this one. This Summit certainly won’t be for everyone.   Adults with these conditions weather we admit it or not. Or realize it or can’t see it. Have/had most of the challenges children do with the challenges addressed in this Summit. De-toxing, food sensitivities, sensory issues, ect. To learn more about it. Check it out here.

Medicinal Supplements Summit

Monday, September 12th, 2016

September 12-19 will be the dates for the Medicinal Supplements Summit. Which could be the most possibly-the most personal, professionally geared, and Integrative Summit Ever! You see, prescriptions and supplements are both near the traditional Medicine and Functional Medicine line. Supplements sometimes are used instead of prescriptions. However, traditional Doctors rarely if ever know much about them. Functional medicine doctors, and other health related and trained professionals defiantly know them (Including Health Coaches). But, only resort to them when apsolutely necessary.

Please note- There are a fair number of types of over the counters. Therefore, there not all un-researched, or all correctly able to be categorized into any 1 or two anything.   So don’t assume everything you hear. Or think everything always applies to you.   Because, it may not.

Anyway, I asked for a Summit about this.  For all of you. So I truly hope, you listen (If not buy) this one.

This Summit is one of if not more relevant for my audience then many that I’ve come across over the last few years.   So, you SERIOUSLY need IT.

Me being an AFFILIATE for it, should show you how much.

Here’s where to register for it and get more info

Go now before you forget! And don’t miss day one! You can vote for your favourite speaker’s at the end of the week likely. But, only if you listen to it!

Eat Dirt Books Trailer

Monday, March 28th, 2016


Here is the page for the Eat Dirt books, trailer. About assisting people to live their best lives.  Despite intestinal permeability/Leaky Gut issues.

Keep in mind. If you watch/listen to many of the free conferences. There will be cross over in it’s content.  And It’s NOT all catered to someone with MCS, SPD, and Roscia.


Eat Dirt

Monday, March 28th, 2016

This post is shared here and written from Trudy because I don’t have the book yet.   This book is to help address intestinal permeability problems, among others.  This issue sadly most MANY of us have. I trust it will be very good. And Joshua Axe is one of my main Health coach/Wellness instructors.  However, I can’t recommend this to those with SPD, Mold toxicity patients, Roscia, with an active Sensitivity to everything. Or  those with MCS.  Not because it won’t help them. But, because of other reason’s. If you are NOT one of those people. I suspect it will be excellent.  After I review it (And I ordered it, It will be here on Thursday). I will  post again about it.

The bonuses are only available with the hard cover version.  There is also, a kindle version for about 5$ less.  I recommend buying it on amazon.  See My note below if you defiantly can’t afford it.

Dr. Josh Axe’s New Book “Eat Dirt”

I had the great pleasure of interviewing Dr. Josh Axe earlier this week. We talked about the gut and eating dirt!

The title of his great new book is: Eat Dirt: Why Leaky Gut May Be the Root Cause of Your Health Problems and 5 Surprising Steps to Cure It

We covered the following in our interview:

  • What is leaky gut and what causes it?
  • The 5 gut types and how to figure out your gut type
  • What does it really mean to eat dirt?
  • What are the best foods for a healthy gut?
  • What are the best supplements and herbs for a healthy gut?
  • And of course how does stress and anxiety play into all of this?

Hippocrates is famous for saying “All disease begins in the gut” and this book lays out the exact steps to take to begin healing the gut.

We started off discussing leaky gut, what it is and what causes it and the conditions that we see when someone has leaky gut. Here is an excerpt from the book:

Upon their initial visit, approximately 80 percent of my patients present with some level of leaky gut syndrome. They come to my clinic experiencing problems ranging from gallbladder issues to thyroid disease, psoriasis or eczema, migraine headaches, insulin resistance, and even stubborn weight gain. Many are amazed to learn that their condition may share the same origin as colitis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and Crohn’s disease. And they’re downright stunned when I tell them that some degree of leaky gut is present in every autoimmune disease, including lupus, multiple sclerosis (MS), and type 1 diabetes.

According to research conducted on both animal and human subjects and published in journals such as Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology and Gut, leaky gut syndrome (or increased intestinal permeability) has been linked to the following symptoms and conditions: ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) Alzheimer’s disease, Anxiety and depression, ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), Autism, Candida and yeast overgrowth, Celiac disease and nonceliac gluten sensitivity, Chronic fatigue syndrome, Crohn’s disease, Fibromyalgia, Gas, bloating, and digestive pain, Hashimoto’s disease, Irritable bowel syndrome.

Here is one of the many great diagrams from the book: How Leaky Gut Develops

From Eat Dirt by Josh Axe

And here are the 5 gut types that we talked about. They are covered in great detail in the book, together with an eating, supplement and lifestyle plan for each one:

  • Candida gut, directly related to yeast overgrowth and being overweight, which affects more than 68 percent of all American adults.
  • Stressed gut, in which chronic stress weakens your adrenal glands, kidneys, and thyroid, and can cause hormone imbalances, fatigue, and thyroid disease.
  • Immune gut, which afflicts the 15 million people who suffer from food allergies 4 and the 1.6 million with inflammatory bowel disease, as well as the 50 million adults with autoimmune disease.
  • Gastric gut, caused by small intestinal bacteria overgrowth (SIBO) and acid reflux, which afflicts 60 percent of all adults—half of whom struggle on a weekly basis.
  • Toxic gut, which can result in gallbladder disease, skin conditions, and chronic liver issues that cause thirty million people great pain every year.

I received an advance review copy and it’s a great book! I highly recommend it, especially if leaky gut and gut health is an issue for you, and if also you’re new to this concept.

If you preorder before it launches you can get $300 in bonus material. Here is the link for making your purchase and getting those bonuses:

Launch date is next Tuesday March 29th so be sure you get it and your bonus material before then. Happy reading!

Eating Disorder Awareness

Friday, February 26th, 2016

Today, and over the past couple days I was told of the following details, from a blog reader (named Afsaneh).Who was interviewed for NJTV. Interviewed buy Mary Alice Williams on her Eating Disorder past. This show will bring  Eating Disorder Awareness more alive and will air at . She is one of the people interviewed in the news video.  The only person interviewed who previously had 1-3 traditional forms of an Eating Disorder. And who prior to entering an Eating Disorder Unit  (otherwise known as the EDU)was actually placed in a different part of the same hospital. It will be aired first at 530 pm EST on PBS today.  Friday February 26th.  Then on at the same day at 6, 7:30, and 11 pm on the NJTV news station.  It will also be on NJTV at 6:30 am on Sat February 27th.

However, you can also view it live (And likely after the 5:30 pm airing) on the NJTV News Channel/feed on utube.   I might add it to this post later.

If you have a Traditional Eating Disorder, I certainly recommend you get help for it. That certainly does NOT mean I recommend the hospital’s EDU that she attended.  Or in all cases even an inpatient program anywhere.  However, if you don’t have much or any other diseases, or disabilities. I do recommend some programs that specifically address Eating Disorders.  NOT mental health units in hospital like settings. Nor do I feel programs like that EDU, address people with ALL kinds of traditional eating disorders well .  Regardless of if we are talking about an inpatient or outpatient program.

Buy searching on utube Mary Alice news. You can listen to the live interview. Or see the recorded version of it.   I have researched and spoken to in the past, places that serve eating disorder patients.

And knowing about the realism of these conditions can be very important, especially for those who have it.  Which can start on average as early as ones teen years.



Eating Disorder’s Anyone? See my changes below

Monday, October 26th, 2015

While I seriously hope you don’t have one. If you do. Or someone you care about does.   You should defiantly check out the Functional Medicine approach to them. As long as you follow the criteria of who needs this conference below.  There are some major important differences between how a functional medicine practioner or program will work with you. Vs. A conventional medicine route in aiding someone with it. And I know at least 1 of the speakers specifically is trained in ADHD and LD counseling with food as well.!

One of my categories is “All” on this post because many people who don’t have it. Could learn about them. To bring self awareness to this specific community (ties).  I have only once seen this topic for the free online conferences so, take advantage of it while it’s avail.  I haven’t heard most of these speakers before so I can’t say much there. But, that doesn’t mean much.

If your an aspie  (or anyone else) with great self awareness, is emotionally healthy and stable with or without meds and have a high desire to learn the content to help others.  Your then a good if not great fit for this conference. If your NOT all of that and don’t have a traditional eating disorder. Do NOT sign up for this conference.  I highly recommend people with any of the following DON’T attend. I  guarantee you if you have any of the following unless you ALSO have a traditional Eating Disorder  (which you may) Same idea if you have eating differences due to SPD,  legit food sensitivities, ADHD,  Gluten Intolerance, Gluten Sensitivity, PDD-NOS,   picky eater’s (Unless perhaps they have VERY poor basic blood work. Showing several nutritional defiancies often. That CAN’T be fixed via a small number of supplements max.)   ASD, Roscia, Diabetic,  IBD, IBS, Colitis, Chron’s, Celiac, Chronic inflammation, Bipolar, auto immune conditions, Chronic Constipation, food intolarances, or food Allergies.   No official diagnosis’s are needed to count for the exclusion.  Just accuracy of what you have is what is Important.

Most of the above diagnosis’s are very infrequently if ever seen in people with Eating Disorder’s. Another words, A small number of  people with any of those above diagnosis’s can have people who ALSO, have eating disorders.   People with Diabeties, depression, bipolar,  perhaps food allergies, Chron’s, and  those with auto immune condition’s are those who could have BOTH.  NONE of the diagnosis’s above however are Eating Disorders.

Anyone who is any of the below (Whether there any of the above or not.) SHOULD sign up for it-

Anyone with any of the below Traditional Eating Disorders. An Eating Disorder would be-

A fitness obsessed type of person,  Even though this one unfortunately is only now starting to appear more now.


if your an over eater,

defiantly if you Binge.

NOS (A combo of  any of the previous ones conditions AFTER I said exempt)

The reasoning behind the explanations above should be clear. But, in case there not.

Traditional Medicine combines Disordered Eating which is anyone with ANY of the above unless you are a perfect weight.  As someone with an Eating Disorder. Isn’t that CRAZY!?  I know, right?

Functional Medicine partly exists for that exact reason. To say that that is NUTS! Wanna know what else they think? Click here! Click Here! And don’t forget to tune in November 2-6th  !


If you want more on this conference from me there is 1 post on my nontoxic4us blog about it also.

Now that I know allot more about this Summit.  Although a couple-to some of the experts have worked with thin anorexics. This Summit won’t serve this population of of people with Eating Disorders (or ED). However, many, if not most in person eating disorder Clinics/Hospitals/programs specialize the most in thin patients with Anorexia. (Even if they allow people with other types of ED) .

Tomorrow, this conference will allow it’s signed up attendees to hear ALL the talks. As well as access to all the bonuses and speaker’s websites for one last time for free.

The video’s sometimes stop before they end. And you have to restart them again. But, if you pay attention enough you can fast forward to where it stopped.  Also, some of the speaker’s don’t go into much detail most of the time. And that makes some of the talks less valuable, in my opinion.

Also, the ones I’ve heard the content for are super simple/basic for the most part.  Which I guess could be good if you need that.  My educated guess would be the other speakers I haven’t heard/watched. Would follow the same suite.

If your looking to work with someone ONE ON ONE.- Also, not all the speaker’s work in a Functional Medicine setting. So, some of there mindsets/beliefs (Or there colleagues) maybe somewhat undesirable/unneeded for your specific situation(s). Especially if you have food intolerances/Sensory issues/sensitivities/allergies/ or another condition that requires eliminating certain foods.  So, if that’s the case. You may want to proceed only with a two way interview first.   If you have a social based neurological or neuro-biological issue  more then 1 interview of sorts may informally be acceptable. (See in three sentences who more specifically qualify as such)    And you are super aware of what you do and don’t need. And are able to communicate them.  Aspie, NV-LD,  ADHD,  PDD-NOS, SPD, Executive Functioning issues or the like.

However, if you are super aware of what you do and don’t need. And aren’t a weak communicator or self advocate. With a decent amount of self-motivation, and interest in self-teaching.  There’s a great chance you want need 1 on 1 counseling with a health coach/ dietician, especially.
