According to the CDC, which is the centers for disease control and prevention, “approximately 11% of children 4-17 years of age (6.4 million) have been diagnosed with ADHD as of 2011 and this number continues to rise each year. Why is this happening? Can the reason for it be hiding in the food system? Is it possible that, unknowingly, we, parents are feeding our children foods that are adding to the problem?
Having a child with behavioral issues is really not a joke and extremely difficult and challenging. My intention behind this podcast is to expose you to a slightly different way of thinking. What if we could see our children and the challenges they bring as a spiritual growth opportunity for us? What if I was chosen to parent this child not randomly, but because I have the wisdom and answers within me that are needed to guide this child through life? How does this perspective change your attitude towards your child? How would your parenting style change? How would your relationship and connection to this child look differently if you allow yourself to stay open and receptive to something different? Hopefully, this ignites some curiosity within you.
Today on the show I am interviewing Nindy Grewal who is a mother two, a Holistic Nutritionist, a Clinical Iridologist and a Live Blood Cell Microscopic Analyst.
