Healing Birth Trauma Through Rebirthing Breathwork

Many children with autism, ADHD and SPD had birth trauma and birth complications.

Your child’s birth and any complications during birth can still have an impact on his or her life today. (The same applies to you, mom!)

I interviewed Eilis McNulty Philpott about this empowering process. You can sign up below for the replay:

Rebirthing is a simple breathing technique that can transform your mind, body and spirit as well as how you perceive yourself, others and the world in general.

The results are often profound as the process works directly at the core of issues whether conscious or unconscious.

Healing Birth Trauma Through Rebirthing BreathworkRebirthing brings expanded awareness on all levels: physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual.

When we consciously breathe with this awareness, we make it possible to resolve, integrate and heal previously unresolved issues within ourselves.

This frees up energy, bringing greater aliveness and joy and allowing us to move towards fulfillment of our potential as human beings.

It also creates space in your life for joy, love, health, prosperity and functional relationships.

Naturopathic Medicine for Autism, ADHD, SPD and LD

I interviewed Marvin Schweitzer, ND about naturopathic medicine for autism, ADHD, SPD and LD.

Sign up below for the webinar replay to learn more about this exciting form of medicine.

Naturopaths strive to deal with underlying causes and are clinically trained in a variety of natural therapies, including:

  • Nutrition
  • Homeopathy
  • Acupuncture
  • Physical therapy
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Exercise
  • Counseling
  • Botanical medicine

Individualized treatment is prescribed after careful analysis of the patient’s history, including nutrition, stress, environment and psychological factors.

Naturopathic Medicine for Autism, ADHD, SPD and LDPhysical examinations and laboratory tests are performed not only to diagnose illness, but also to determine the health of the organ systems.

Through improved lifestyle education coupled with nourishing balancing, cleansing and repairing of the body, a naturopath can unleash the healing power of nature in the body.

Naturopathic medicine can and has been used to recover children from symptoms of:

  • Autism
  • ADHD
  • Sensory Processing Disorder
  • Learning disabilities

Dr. Schweitzer earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Sciences.

This was followed by post-graduate research at McGill University, Montreal, in the fields of immunology and endocrine pathophysiology.

He received his doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine (ND), after a 4-year program from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine (NCNM) in Portland, Oregon.

Dr. Schweitzer is versed in clinical research, scientific medicine, German biological medicine, and energy medicine.

He also worked in the lab that pioneered prostaglandin research and developed a nutraceutical that is used throughout the world to this day:  Evening Primrose Oil.

The Hidden Link Between Food Sensitivities and Learning Disabilities

Please join me in learning about the hidden link between food sensitivities and learning disabilities. You can sign up for the replay below:

I interviewed Stephen Cowan MD, who told us how food allergies and sensitivities can be a “learning disability”.

He offered a unique perspective within the framework of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

The Hidden Link Between Food Sensitivities and Learning DisabilitiesFood is information. If our bodies don’t understand this “information”, then the food just sits there.

The “triple warmer” is fired up to create heat to process this information, and this creates inflammation.

The over-processed, overstimulating fast foods we eat in our fast-paced world are contributing to learning disabilities in our children.

Hidden food sensitivities can cause symptoms such as:

  • Inability to pay attention
  • Distractability
  • Behavioral problems
  • Irritability
  • Aggression
  • Fatigue

Traditional Chinese Medicine recognizes that each food has its own thermo-energetic properties that can be used to treat health problems.

In treating children, the Chinese medicine classics emphasize that diet should always be considered the first line of therapeutics before prescribing medications.

Stephen Cowan MD is a board-certified pediatrician with 25 years of clinical experience working with children.

He has a subspecialty in Developmental Pediatrics and has developed a unique holistic approach to evaluating and treating children struggling with chronic physical, emotional and cognitive disorders. 

Dr. Cowan is the author of “Fire Child, Water Child: How Understanding The Five Types of ADHD Can Help You Improve Your Child’s Self-Esteem and Attention”.

Place in freezer for 20 minutes. Once firm, break into pieces and process with cashew butter until smooth. Refrigerate until needed.

Now you can make a healthier cake with this vegan coconut milk frosting! It’s dairy-free and uses maple syrup as a sweetener.

NeuroModulation Technique for Allergies and Autism

I interviewed Luminara Serdar about the NeuroModulation Technique for allergies and autism. You can sign up for the replay here:

Symptoms of pain, inflammation, allergy, autoimmune disease, fatigue and depression are just signals the mind-body needs attention and help.

NMT (Neuromodulation Technique) helps the body recognize and correct, at the most basic level, the origins of these symptoms.

NeuroModulation Technique for Autism and AllergiesNMT resets the nervous system to interpret these signals accurately, thereby reducing or eliminating symptoms, often times immediately.

Because NMT works by shifting the information and energy fields which bring about physical disease, it can be used for just about anything.

NMT can be helpful for people with:

  • Autism
  • Allergies
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Psychological issues
  • Mood disorders
  • Emotional issues
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Toxicity

Luminara Serdar studied genetics and cell biology at Purdue University and later worked as a molecular biologist at the University of Chicago and then at the NutraSweet Company.

After receiving her MBA, she developed and marketed products for molecular biologists to use in research experiments.

For several years, she was involved with the world-wide effort of sequencing of the Human Genome, became marketing director of a biotechnology company, and then consulted in the industry.

In 1994 she began exploring energetic medicine quite by accident after having a near-anaphylactic allergic reaction to pistachios that landed her in the emergency room.

She overcame her allergy with NAET (Namboodripod’s Allergy Elimination Technique), an energetic modality, and overcame the allergy.

She later discovered that NMT worked better, faster, and more directly than NAET and became an NMT practitioner.
