Memorable Moments:

“We live in a toxin-filled world.”

“Different children’s bodies react to those toxins in different ways. If we pay attention to their symptoms and don’t judge them or punish them or medicate them, but pay attention and think, ‘What could be causing this? What is the source of this?’…Everything can change.”

“Our bodies have a natural system/way of detoxifying themselves.”

“When they have these toxin exposures, it’s causing inflammation in the body, and inflammation is going to cause more symptoms and that’s going to impair the detoxification system even more.”

“As long as the source of the toxins you are still sitting in it, you can’t get it out….Lower inflammation in general by lessening the exposure.”

“You can help support their body’s ability to naturally detox….And you don’t need a doctor to do this part for you.”

“You want to calm the system down, lower the inflammation, get a little detox going, and now we can go deeper if needed.”

“Number 1 – clean the diet and the lifestyle. Keep those chemicals away as much as you possibly can and expose them to nature.”

“You control what they eat…They need nutrition for the pathways to work correctly…Everything that they eat should be nutrient dense.”
