Start with Oscillococcinum for any cold or flu-like symptoms.


Follow it with:

Hepar Sulph 200C mixed with Sanguinaria 200C (for a sinus cold)

In the video, I talk about the Nemechek Protocol™ for Autism.  I've heard the name before, but just started researching it.  Dr. Nemechek is from Arizona and sees patients locally as well as consulting via Skype.  

In his book, he goes into detail about how the imbalance of bacteria in the small intestine causes "leaky gut", which lets bad chemicals into the brain and damages it, causing autistic symptoms or symptoms of chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and lots of...

What an Email from the Post Office Taught Me About Gratitude

I just got a tracking email from the US postal service telling me a package I shipped two days ago has arrived at the post office and will be going out for delivery today.

I felt so grateful as I glanced at this email.

Grateful to live in a place where I can drop a package off and two days later it will be delivered to the recipients doorstep.

Grateful for technology that alerts me to exactly where the package is each time it arrives at a sorting facility or is in a truck.

Grateful for the...

How to Go From Gluten-Free to Completely GRAIN-free

Trying to switch from a gluten-free diet to a grain-free diet can seem impossible!  What the heck will you eat?

If you've still been eating gluten-free breads, gluten-free baking mixes, and package gluten-free cookies and crackers, it can seem like an insurmountable task to remove those from your diet.  But it really isn't and it can be fun.  The key is to have and use the right tools, and to get and accept support when you're feeling like you can't do it.  Even by...

Homeschooling: Swift Playgrounds Coding Program is Out!

I've already been slacking off on doing these posts daily.  I really want to do them daily, but life has gotten in the way.  It's possible they will evolve to weekly inspiration.  But, for now, I'll keep trying to do them daily, or at least every couple of days! The most exciting thing of the week for us is that the Swift Playgrounds app has just been released for iPad and iPhone. It's free, but I still "bought" it.

WHAT I BOUGHT:

Swift Playgrounds app.  My 9 year old son...

Books to Help Your Visual-Learning 2E Kid Thrive

My son has autism.

He also has a high IQ, with slow processing speed.

He is also tall for his age.

He also has blonde hair.

He has a lot of other traits as well.

We had his IQ tested at the Gifted Development Center in Denver in 2013 when he was 6 and a half.  It was part of the many things we did to help figure out how to best guide him.  He didn't cooperate much during the testing, but they were "pulled some tricks out of their sleeve" and were able to give him a "General Ability...

FOUR easy steps to start eating REAL FOOD now!

The health of the human race and the earth is declining rapidly, and it's time we do something about it.  We are ruining our soil by raising cattle in feed lots where they spend their days standing in their own waste and breathing the stench of it, while eating food that their bodies were not designed to digest.  

We are planting massive amounts of genetically modified corn, soybeans, and cotton and then spraying it with chemicals so the soil yields more food. Then the water...
