As you also know, Bio Sperfood has been a very helpful addition to my son’s healing, and we have had so much success with it that I decided to share it with you.
for info on the product and how we fist began using it, click here: http://ginalaverde.wordpress.com/2009/08/30/bio-algae-concentrates-for-autism-recovery/
The idea of balance plays a huge role when using this supplement. It is extremely powerful. While there has always been social, developmental, digestive and immune progress with this supplement, at times it makes Dougie, my son, really edgy and stimmy. Too much of anything can cause results that we don’t like. But, how do we know how much is the right aount for us?
I don’t believe that detox and healing should be painful. I try to make Dougie’s days go by as smoothly as I possibly can. Because we use whole-food supplements and no medicines, I know that when he has a reactionit is most likely that he has simply had as much as he can handle. Slowing way down with dosages of Bioage has helped me determine how much y son needs. And, if/when you begin your journey with this, I highly recommend beginning with the smallest drip/drop possible. As in.. breaking open the pills and only eating the smallest amount first. It’s powerful stuff.
I have learned how to balance Bio Sperfood with other foods in order to give it to him in a way that supports his healing.
This product is very expansive. It can over-stimulate (I have not seen any proof of this recorded, but I have seen it in my home). So I urge you to go slowly with it.
If we think of creating balance in our systems as creating harmony, it may help us to understand that what we want to create is a steady calm rhythm. Seeing as though we heal in moments of stillness, my goal should is to create stillness within his systems.
Detox in itself (although necessary) upset Dougie’s system for a short period, because I went too fast with it.
When unsavory detox symptoms are occurring you can use your mommy instincts to bring Balance back.
The Mommy Instinct:
Often, painful detox symptoms will resemble an exaggerated version of the person’s illness. If we are suffering from autism — detoxing may make us either more stimmy (hyper, injurious, spinny, tantrums etc) or more distant.
Detox (die off) symptoms can also take us to the opposite side of the spectrum. But, when we are making positive lifestyle and diet changes we are pretty certain to see some type of die-off symptoms.
A system on overload can react in either way.
So, we must take care to stop and listen to the needs of our children and loved ones. This is where slowing down is so helpful.
It’s clear to me that the bioage caused detox. It’s a clean, whole-food based algae supplement — so, when Dougie experiences too much die-off or painful symptoms we simply slow down or take breaks from it.
As moms, I believe we can help heal our loved ones without knowing the scientific cause of these symptoms.
- If we are caring for someone who has become over-stimulated they need things that will bring them into calm. Think of ways you can address their needs without putting in more medicine/supplements etc. Observe your child closely, (close your eyes if you have to) and ask yourself what he needs. You have the answer. If it feels right it probably is and if you are questioning it there must be a great reason.
These methods have worked for me. I use them all the time to bring us back into balance.
- Dry skin brushing, massage, lavender oil (burning or boil dried lavender)
- Classical music
- Dim light or candle light
- Unplug all electrical devices
- Take out doors if possible
- Allow a healthy outlet for too much energy (rebounding, running, singing, even singing loud in safe place)
- Enema/ spa time ( to let out build up)
- If we are caring for someone who has become distant, lethargic and lacks interaction with us they may need some stimulation
- Tummy rubs to stimulate digestion
- Mineral broth soup and foods with high nutrient content)
- Enema and spa to release build up
Ask for balance in your life so that you can see how to extend it into the life of your loved ones. You will know that you can use these methods to help yourself too. And, if you consider all things… All things that affect the child’s life you will know how to begin bringing balance back to him.
To me, there is only one disease, and that is the state of not being balanced and “happy” inside ourselves.
My mommy instinct:
My son pretty much pulled out of autism at age 4. Although, at the time he certainly did not act like a 4 year old. I had to consider the time “lost” when he was ill. And so, I brought him back to all of the developmental and social places he needed to go in order to come back into himself.
At 4 years old I put him back in my bed with me. I help him more. I even walked him to school holding him. At this point ( at some levels) I was dealing with a newborn. There were places in his development that he totally missed because he was sick. I began encouraging crawling and babbling (even though he was talking – he stuttered a lot and repeated a lot)
I stopped correcting his language altogether. I stopped trying to get him to hold a fork correctly or eat a certain way.
What did your child miss? Can you somehow recreate that?
Using the Bio Supefood in amounts that Dougie can handle has physically worked on his brain to help him speak more clearly, write letters clearly, walk more balanced, and the improvements continue.
Dougie currnetly takes 1/2 to 1 F2 daily with interediate breaks. y hubby and I take Bio Superfood as well. I’ll have more info on that soon.
Please ask me if you have specific questions or need advice about implementing any of this.
