Lunchbox Smoothie Bowl

Whether for last-minute "fast food," breakfast, a snack, or lunch, smoothie bowls have long been a favorite meal option in our house. They are an easy way to sneak in vegetables, serve a variety of foods, and pack in nutrients. We've found that pre-made smoothie bowls also work great in a lunchbox and make for a hassle-free morning. The most important steps are to freeze it overnight, remove it from the freezer in the morning, and store it in a freezer and leakproof container. For us, by the time it is lunchtime, our smoothie bowl is perfect. [...]

Essential Oils We Love

While we have not been a huge essential oil family, we have found them beneficial in a supportive role. Here are a few that have made a big enough impression on us that I thought it would be helpful enough to share.  I have not researched nor adhered to any specific brand or manufacturer but have relied heavily on the more common MLM companies. It is important to note that strong scents found in essential oils (especially tea tree and peppermint), can antidote/cancel/decrease the effectiveness of homeopathic remedies.  We are cautious of what we diffuse in our [...]

Lowering Glutamate | Homeopathic Glutamate

Ultra-Low Dose and Homeopathically Prepared Glutamate While homeopathy has been used for over two hundred years, science is still catching up on how it works, and more and more studies are being released. Since excess glutamate has played such a substantial role in our personal health issues, and we have greatly benefited from homeopathy, I had to research the connection to homeopathically prepared glutamate. Homeopathy differs from conventional medicine as it is based on the concept of like cures like and does not function as suppressive medicine (temporarily suppressing symptoms); instead, it works to resolve the root of [...]

Glutamate Produced by the Body

Not too long after starting the low-glutamate diet, REID, I buried myself in research at the hospital library to further research the role of glutamate produced by the body (intrinsic glutamate) and why one might be more sensitive to dietary free glutamate. This is where I came across the brilliant studies and presentations by the neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock. Dr. Russell Blaylock directed quite a bit of his research toward the role of immune activation triggering excess glutamate in a process called immunoexcitotoxicity. So what is immunoexcitotoxicity and what is the connection between these underlying or active [...]

Our Story Of Hope

From nearly his conception, our son has kept us on our toes. Abnormal ultrasounds, a NICU stay, eczema, colic, constipation, sleepless nights, and all of those new parent worries were dealt with early on. Despite all of this, though, we still managed to have a precious, healthy boy meeting all his milestones and typically developing. In fact, at his 18-month checkup, he was evaluated as being developmental, "right on track," happy, engaging, pointing, and even saying, “I love you." Unfortunately, our world started crumbling shortly after this checkup, and our faith was tested. One of the [...]

Glutamate In Food

Bound Glutamate vs. Free Glutamate Proteins contain the amino acid glutamate. When glutamate is "bound" to the protein or in the whole form, it is rarely problematic, even for those highly sensitive to glutamate. However, glutamate often becomes problematic when the proteins are degraded and glutamate is "freed" from the protein chain. MSG is the most common form of free glutamate in our food, and the terms free glutamate and MSG are frequently used interchangeably. Historically, MSG and its various names have been added to our food to provide a competitive edge over other manufacturers by making [...]

Homeopathic Water Dosing

Homeopathic water dosing is a way to decrease the dose and or prolong the use of homeopathic remedies. With this approach, instead of taking dry pellets, one consumes some of the water that contains the dissolved homeopathic pellets. You do not need to take a water dose to take a homeopathic remedy.  I am only sharing this for those that may be more sensitive or whose homeopaths use water dosing.  How to Make A Water Dose Remedy Bottle: What you will need: 8oz  Plastic Disposable Water Bottle (this is your remedy bottle) [...]

Homeopathic Aggravations

Your Homeopath will guide you; however, finding the correct remedy and potency/dose will likely require much trial and error.  I was told recently that once you've been using homeopathy for six months, you are truly just starting to begin using homeopathy. Therefore, commit to giving it for at least eight months before using homeopathy. Patience is needed, but the number one thing I am most grateful for in this journey is that I did not give up on homeopathy. Now that we know how homeopathic potencies and dosing work, we must understand [...]
