Lowering Glutamate | Vitamin D

Vitamin D Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that depends on a healthy gut to absorb dietary fat or fatty acid oxidation disorders (this is more common in autism, and floating stools are a sign of trouble absorbing fats). While low levels of vitamin D can induce an imbalance towards excess glutamate (excitatory neurotransmitter) and low GABA (calming neurotransmitter), vitamin D can reduce excitotoxicity (excess glutamate and excitatory neurotransmitters) through modulation of the NMDA glutamate receptor. However, in my opinion, vitamin D's most important benefit is its ability to calm microglial activation. Microglial activation occurs as the [...]

Lowering Glutamate | B2 (Riboflavin)

Vitamin B2 aka Riboflavin Vitamin B2 (aka Riboflavin) is mainly provided by diet and bacterial synthesis in the gut and helps to offer neuroprotection from excess glutamate, and inhibits glutamate signaling (release), helps to reduce inflammatory cytokines, which are often the primary source of increased/excess glutamate in response to underlying immune dysfunction/activation, and in response to underlying infections. All B-Vitamins help to convert food into fuel and are essential in energy production. It is important to note that vitamin-B2 (Riboflavin) is needed to break down and utilize vitamin-B6, which is important in converting excitatory glutamate to [...]

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 [...]

Meal Planning & Our Go-To Recipes

I know the dreaded meal planning all too well! I try to limit my grocery shopping to two days a week.  Here is how I plan for our meals during the week: I use the "Notes" section on my phone to create a running grocery list. I've made it shareable with family members so that they can add to the list. I use the "Notes" section on my phone to create a running list of meal ideas.  Most of my ideas are from following my favorite cookbook authors on Instagram.  I will then copy and paste their [...]

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 [...]

Why Homeopathy

I’ve procrastinated on writing this post about homeopathy because it’s complex and hard to describe what it is and how it works. Furthermore, I am not a medical professional, and this post does not act as medical advice; I am simply sharing our experience with homeopathy thus far (we started homeopathy in January 2015). Homeopathy has been life-changing for our family, and our love and appreciation for it continue to grow. I can’t tell our story about homeopathy without explaining how we were led to it because it was an absolute God thing. I was introduced to [...]

Homeopathic Potencies & Dosing

Video correction!! In this video, I mistakenly referred to cups as part of the dilution rate instead of parts. Our family frequently uses water dosing with cup dilutions and, out of habit, said  1 part material to 10 cups water (etc.). I should have said 1 part material to 10 parts water. I apologize for the confusion.  When you look at a homeopathic remedy vial, you will notice the remedy name, followed by a number and a letter.  The number identifies how many times the original material has been diluted. The letter [...]

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 [...]
