Healing Our Children

Monday, February 29th, 2016

March 15-23 rd is a Summit mainly for parents with neurological or neuro-biological differences. Julie Matthews and Doctor Martha Herbert are only two of the speakers highlighted on it. Perhaps your familiar to them? This annual Summit is right in time to prepare for April’s, Autism Awareness month.

Part of what this Summit does is reinforce that Autistics lives (As well as others with certain special needs) are partly determined buy others and their shared environments. And that our survival and way of thriving is heavily impacted buy the stress and perspectives of others.

Here are there two bios of the two speakers I mention above. The last being the Host of the Summit, who is also a specialized nutritionist in people with Sensory Processing Disorders.

Dr. Martha Herbert is an Assistant Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School, a Pediatric Neurologist at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, and an affiliate of the Harvard-MIT-MGH Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, where she is director of the TRANSCEND Research Program (Treatment Research and Neuroscience Evaluation of Neurodevelopmental Disorders). The author of The Autism Revolution: Whole Body Strategies for Making Life All it Can Be, Dr. Herbert is a leading voice in the medical community, helping to bridge the gap between the lagging medical science and the reality of what she was actually seeing in her patients.

Alison Morris is the founder of Full Potential Parenting, the host of the Summit, and a certified EFT or tapping practitioner who works with parents of challenging children to release the beliefs and fears that prevent us from connecting with our children and instead cause us to react in ways we later regret. Her book, Stress Relief for Struggling Parents: Using EFT to Become the Parent you Long to Be, provides parents with a powerful tool for releasing the stuck emotions and perspectives that keep us in a reactive, angry mode with our children when we want so much to respond with love and understanding.

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.

Tapping Annual Summit

Tuesday, February 16th, 2016

February 20 th- March 2nd the 8th Tapping World Summit will take place. Tapping is an Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Millions have already attended the previous ones and it is hosted buy NY times Best selling author Nick Ortner. His best seller is The Tapping Solution book- he also produced the video The Tapping Solution.

With only 2 speakers a day ( And only 21 expert presenters) fitting it into your schedule might not be nearly impossible. Tapping is a way to reduce depression, and anxiety, and helps with sleep. Among other things. Therefore this can be a great way for stressed out parents to keep there cool if they struggle to deal with the stresses of caring for children with unique bodies/brains.

You can learn more here.

I’m not an affiliate for this but, I’ve signed up for it since the Topic isn’t sufficiently covered in other Summits, I don’t have time or money to read about it and although I’ve been introduced to it, I’ve never attended this Summit.

The Natural Medicine NOW Summit

Friday, February 5th, 2016

February 15-22nd is the Natural Medicine NOW Summit created buy,  The Natural Medicine Now University. It will generally address many needs in natural ways.   There are speakers on topics of heart health, Thyroid, De-toxing, Autism, allergy, and even body temperature.  Among other’s.  The level of this conference content difficulty I would say is at a health coach level.  Which seams to me to mean a serious beginner. Not a novice one still trying to believe the truth or realism behind functional medicine’s different scientific approaches.


Great for beginners! Click here!

Connections with Summits

Friday, February 5th, 2016

Some of the Summits I highlight might not be relevant to your needs. So why, if I know this. Do I still share them with you? Here are some of those reasons.

My reader base has some variety.  There are guardians to those with disabilities, relatives and friends of those with disabilities, people with disabilities, children,  professionals who work with the disabled, the elderly (A different group type of challenges), and curious lay man who may or may not have a connection to those with anything.

What makes someone different or disabled can change depending on who you ask.   What makes for example an elderly person not disabled? Or someone simply with diabetes?

Each Summit has numerous speakers. If you gain learning that is relevant from just 1/2 speakers that is worth it to me.

The Summit’s often have speakers who are generalized experts in people problems.   Plus then experts in various highly skilled fields.  Therefore,  their knowledge about special people. While it may not be at the most complex level. What they do know about us IS usually exactly on point and accurate.  Because of what they do. And who they learn from. Not to mention their high level of passion to help others.

To understand what’s normal, a little abnormal, and different then you in certain ways. Can help some pin point where there personal differences lie. When this is done properly you can learn allot  about yourself and others like you. Which will only support you shining even more.

And the biggest reason, is because I can. These Summit’s are temporarily free. Were very lucky these professionals offer them to us free of charge. Allot of this information is usually otherwise very expensive. The more specialized the content in them, it is the more helpful for some of you. I understand that. But, at the same time. That would mean a much larger gift.  This needs to be fair to everyone and serve a large enough listening base. To break even at least in the costs of the presentations.




A Desperately Needed Positive Approach

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016

ReAttach Therapy addresses depression, thought processes, and behavior in a gentle and effective manner to improve the individuals and their families who receive it. When I say families I mean the people closely in contact with the individual on a regular basis. So, for adults, it could be employers, family, friends, ect. It is a therapy that is highly individualized and has a great tone. When I say tone, I mean approach and how it’s received publicly.  Because of this I highly recommend you check it out more here.

If your a professional PLEASE consider it’s training  here, here, or here. If your a parent of a child or adult with mental health needs/sp. neurological/neuro-biological needs  check it out as well.  If your autistic, ADHD, depressed, or have any other type of disability. Check it out here.

The here’s above in grey all are clickable to different relevant website pages speaking of this therapy.

I hate to say this but-   Please keep in mind-  In order for any therapy to be the most effective. An individual needs therapy and the right support outside of it. So, if YOU are unwilling or unable to be that. Any therapy might not be worth the time, energy and money.  It’s NOT just all about us.

Note- If I haven’t personally approved anything. You can assume, I won’t post about it.  This means. I obviously have already checked this out thoroughly. And find it worthy of your attention.
