The Perfect Storm

Statistics.jpg

Thirty years ago, very few people had heard of diagnoses like ADHD or autism.

Today, these are household words!

These illnesses, and others like them, are just the earliest signs of a huge epidemic that is affecting our children & us as adults. American children are being diagnosed with chronic illnesses (autism, asthma, allergies, diabetes, ADHD and many others) at a breathtaking rate, and even more undiagnosed children suffer silently  This crisis stems from very specific and insidious environmental factors (beyond just “pollution”) that have been introduced slowly into our lives over the course of the past few decades.

We’re experiencing a “perfect storm” of environmental factors that are destroying our immune systems, & in regards to our children, it’s affecting their growth and development, and preventing them from living a thriving life. Our poor babes!

Ultimately when we break all this down, we’ve got Many Diagnoses…..but One Epidemic!

Asthma, Autism, ADHD, Allergies, Autoimmune disease, Eczema, Bipolar Disorder…. What do these all diagnoses have in common?

Inflammation, Toxicity, Gut problems, Inflammation, Disturbed hormones, Did I mention inflammation?

Yup,  inflammation.

That’s the way the body responds to invaders.

A little info: All of the words that end in “itis,” like bronchitis, gastritis, arthritis, and tonsillitis, mean just that… inflammation.

Most medical professionals treat the symptoms of these disorders. However, when you look at possible causes..like environmental toxins, nutritional deficiencies, metabolic imbalances, genetic vulnerabilities, and remediate them, magic can happen.

As you know I share little snippets of my own personal health journey. After graduating from Nutrition School, I was gifted a tuition to study Chronic Illness on a deeper level with the Epidemic Answers Organization. My education is probably the best thing that has ever happened for me!!  There is hope you guys. Yes, Mother Supper is about cooking, but it’s also about understanding the healing process and learning techniques that we get to utilize IMMEDIATELY & also pass on to our babes.

Together we can change the struggles we face today but also change things so our children’s children gain back their God given right to Good Health & a good life!
