Epstein-Barr Virus and Autoimmunity

I interviewed Muneeza Ahmed, Intuitive Medicine Woman, about the Epstein-Barr virus and its relation to autoimmunity. You can sign up for the replay below:

The role of the Epstein-Barr virus and other herpetic viruses in the etiology of “autoimmune” disorders as well as neurodevelopmental and neurological disorders is coming to light.

In addition, research now shows how immune-system dysregulation is one of the root causes of neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism, ADHD and Sensory Processing Disorder.

What if our bodies aren’t attacking themselves, as is the common definition of autoimmunity, but instead attacking these stealth viruses?

Soma RPM for Non-Verbal/Low-Verbal Children

I interviewed Jane Potthast, Certified Soma RPM Provider, about Soma RPM (Rapid Prompting Method). You can sign up for the replay below:

The Rapid Prompting Method was developed by Soma Mukhopadhyay, and is known as Soma RPM, or just RPM.

It sounds simple enough: Teaching a child with autism to communicate through independent spelling on letter boards through a series of prompts.

Soma RPM for Non-Verbal/Low-Verbal ChildrenBut the effect is powerful: Many seemingly non-verbal or low-verbal children with autism communicate extremely well using Soma RPM.

Soma RPM recognizes that children with autism are intellectually and emotionally competent but have not been able to demonstrate this due to an imbalanced sensory system, impairment of purposeful motor movement and a lack of education.

You may discover that your child is not severely handicapped, but may in fact was just lacking the proper tools for communication.

 

Jane Potthast grew up with autism in her home: Her younger brother, James, was diagnosed when he was three.

James had limited verbal speech and was on a recycled, first-grade curriculum throughout his life; this changed when he saw Soma Mukhopadhyay at age 14.

Through Soma’s method, James demonstrated how intelligent he was, and communicated his thoughts and opinions. 

Jane’s family felt that they were meeting James for the first time.

He has described his years before the Rapid Prompting Method as being locked in a high tower, without hope. 

Forrest Maready: Crooked Smiles and Misaligned Eyes

I interviewed Forrest Maready about his book, “Crooked: Man-Made Disease Explained: The Incredible Story of Metal, Microbes, and Medicine — Hidden Within Our Faces.”

You can sign up for the webinar replay below:

From autism to Alzheimer’s and from chronic fatigue syndrome to Chron’s disease, this book connects the dots from metallic medicine to the eruption of neurological and autoimmune disorder epidemics of today.

Forrest Maready: Crooked Smiles and MisalignedWhat You’ll Learn

  • The incredible story of metal, microbes, and medicine — hidden within our faces.
  • Why people with “smirks” have smiles that are typically higher on the right side, lower on the left.
  • Why so many people, from celebrities, to athletes, to children with neurodevelopmental disorders have misaligned eyes (strabismus).
  • Why autism affects mostly males.
  • Why women are more likely to have autoimmune diseases than men.
  • How metals hijack the immune system itself in such a way that your body’s natural response to harm creates more harm.
  • The role of stress in the onset of neurological and autoimmune disorders.
  • The role of pathogens in the onset of these disorders.
  • The role of aluminum in the onset of these disorders.
  • Why less aluminum in the body can be more harmful.

White blood cells can freely pass through the blood brain barrier and unfortunately, many of these white blood cells may contain aluminum inside.

Special Needs Financial Planning

I interviewed Colin Meeks, Certified Financial Planner, about special needs financial planning, including special needs trusts and ABLE accounts. You can sign up for the webinar replay here:

If you have a special needs child, you must plan for two lifetimes: yours and your child’s.

To properly plan for your entire family, setting up a timeline is a crucial step – you cannot afford to miss important pressure points.

  • Updated legal documents
  • Protection and liquidity plan
  • A planning strategy that mirrors your family’s goals and priorities, updated annually like a tax return

Special Needs Financial Planning

  • Understanding of the benefits of a special needs trust
  • Knowledge of the benefits of an ABLE account and how it differs from a special needs trust
  • A template to create your very own special needs financial planning timeline (fill in the blanks)
  • A punchlist of things to do and when to do them (based on your child’s age)

Among the >60,000 U.S. children who develop autism spectrum disorders (ASD) every year, 20,000 become nonverbal and will have to rely on assisted living for the rest of their life.

What if there is a way to prevent language regression in babies?

Preventing Language RegressionListen in as I interview Knut Wittkowski of The Rockefeller University about his exciting research about this possibility and how simple it may be in preventing language regression.

Pleasurable Childbirth with Debra Pascali-Bonaro

I  interviewed Debra Pascali-Bonara, a childbirth educator and co-author of “Orgasmic Birth” about pleasurable childbirth.

You can sign up for the replay below:

Children with neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism, ADHD and Sensory Processing Disorder often experienced birth trauma.

In a 2016 study, researchers found that babies whose mothers received Pitocin, an epidural or a combination of the two were 2.77 times more likely to be on the autism spectrum.

Pleasurable Childbirth with Debra Pascali-Bonaro

In addition, children with autism are 2.32 times more likely to have undergone labor induction.

I hypothesize that the risk of having a child with ADD/ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder, learning disabilities and developmental delays would be increased as well.

What if we could lower this risk by having women understand that Pitocin and an epidural may not be necessary?

What if pregnant women understood that childbirth is both powerful and pleasurable?
