It’s the holiday season and it seems like everyone is stressed!  

This time of year often brings up big feelings in me because of all the birthdays - my birthday, my dads birthday, Christmas, then my moms birthday.

My dad died on Christmas Eve five years ago. I’m going through a divorce, moving homes, and my son is defiant and super intelligent and everything is a discussion.   Things feel pretty heavy right now.

Sooo... right now is the perfect time for lots and lots of...

The Nemechek Protocolâ„¢ for Healing Autism - One Year Update!


We've been on the Nemechek Protocol™ for a little over a year!  If you haven't seen my original video where I described my son's awakening and progress after 6 weeks on the protocol, check it out here.

In the video above, I report on how my son is doing (great!) after a year on the protocol.  He's 13 now, and is so much more aware of his emotions and his surroundings.  I am also feeling great, my skin is clearer, and my digestion is so much more regular.  I'm even...

The 4 Most-Important Daily To-Dos for the Highly Sensitive Person

As an HSP, is very important for me to process and let go of all the tension and stress that I seem to absorb just from being in the world every day.

  2. I also make sure every evening to do a deep relaxing Qi Gong routine for 15 minutes...

Are you always in fight or flight like me?

When my son was younger, I took him to a special therapist to deal with his Retained Infantile Reflexes.

Basically, babies have reflexes that they typically grow out of by the age of 1.  But for some reason, some people don't completely get rid of some of the reflexes.

Recently, it was brought to my attention that Z has a retained "Fear Paralysis Reflex" which means he freezes and then gets angry to counteract the freezing when he is faced with many ordinary daily tasks.  I...

RECIPE: OMG, Make Ghee (Clarified Butter) in the Instant Pot!

OMG!  Ghee in the Instant Pot?  Yes!

In case you didn't already know, your Instant Pot can also be used as a Slow Cooker!  Some slow cookers with ceramic dishes have been found to have lead in the surface that touches the food.  Yikes!  But the Instant Pot has a stainless steel pan, so the surfaces that touch the food are free of lead!  Here's the Instant Pot I have. I really like how quickly the Instant Pot heats up when used in Slow Cooker mode, and...

Why You Need to Reduce Inflammatory Omega-6 Oils in Your Family's Diet NOW!

The total amount of Omega 6 oils in the standard Western diet is way too high.  Humans need a balance of Omega 3, 6, and 9s and because of processed vegetable oils, we are getting way too many Omega 6 oils and not enough Omega 3s or 9s.

Elevated Omega-6 intakes are associated with an increase in all inflammatory diseases – which is to say virtually all diseases. The list includes (but isn’t limited to):

  • cardiovascular disease
  • type 2 diabetes
  • obesity
  • metabolic syndrome

How to Avoid Pain Killers After Minor Surgery (Like Adult Tongue Tie Release)


I had my posterior tongue tie release in November 2017.  I had prepared for a month beforehand by seeing my Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist weekly and doing her prescribed mouth and tongue stretches and exercises 3 times a day.

When it came time for the procedure, I used homeopathic remedies to help with the pain, swelling, and emotions that came with the procedure.  

Homeopathy is very dilute potency of an original substance.  The essence of the original item helps the...
