 Client Success Story!

 
NAET successfully helps with some symptoms associated with Asperger's Syndrome. From Mom C.P., Metamora, MI: Before Treatment: My 6 year old son had been diagnosed with Asperger's, which is high functioning Autism.  He was experiencing anxiety in school, behavioral issues and emotional outbursts.  He was unable to sit still and focus at school and home.  After Treatment:  My son's behavior is like night and day.  The emotional outbursts have almost completely ended.  He has a sense of calm about him.  Other family members can not believe the change in him.  We are now able to complete 5 pages of math homework in 20 minutes which took me 45 minutes of arguing to get him to attempt 1 page in the past.  New Life Allergy Treatment Center has changed our lives.  I have faith my son will be able to lead a normal life.  I will always be grateful.  Thank you, with all my heart!!

Healthy Summertime Snacks!

by | Jun 25, 2018 | Healthy Family, Kids, Meal Planning, Nutrition, Snacks, Vegetables | 0 comments

Summer is here!  That means your kids are outside playing more and are looking for snacks to take to the park or on road trips, bus trips, camping trips or any other trips you might have planned.  Your best options will be full of healthy fats and proteins, not processed carbs—so your kids will have plenty of energy for non-stop playing and summertime fun.  If your kids have a sweet tooth, berries also make great snacks and treats. Berries are excellent sources of antioxidants and berries contain less sugar than most fruits do.

Frozen berries are also a great option for blending in smoothies, making popsicles or just popping in your mouth on a hot day.  Get some berries at the farmer’s market and then just spread them out on a rimmed baking sheet, pop them into the freezer until they’re completely frozen through (that usually takes a few hours), then stash them in a zip-loc freezer bag.

Healthy summertime snacks include:

  • Hard boiled organic free-range eggs sprinkled with Celtic sea salt for extra minerals
  • Chopped veggies for dipping such as peppers, tomatoes, carrots, celery – dip in guacamole, hummus, bean dips or ranch dip.
  • Salsa – get my Raw Summer Salsa or Pineapple Salsa
  • Guacamole – stir chopped tomatoes, onion, garlic, chopped cilantro into mashed avocado, then add Celtic sea salt and a squeeze of lime juice.  Check out my post 8 Ways to Use Avocados for more ideas!
  • Hummus – get my  Homemade Hummus Recipe
  • Smoothies – my favorite kind is with fresh or frozen organic berries, coconut milk, and some raw honey to taste.
  • Whole-milk plain grass-fed yogurt topped with homemade granola and/or some berries and a drizzle of raw honey
  • Olives (pitted varieties are more travel-friendly)
  • Raw nuts or trail mixes (mix in some goji berries, cranberries or raisins and maybe even some dark chocolate chunks)
  • Cheese (opt for raw, hard cheeses and cut them into bite-sized cubes before leaving home)
  • Fruit (opt for no-prep-needed varieties like berries, bananas, apples, pears, and stone fruits like plums or nectarines)
  • Kale chips, either homemade or store-bought
  • Seaweed chips
  • Popcorn – yummy topped with coconut oil, butter and Celtic sea salt
  • Jerky or salami sticks made with grass-fed meat
  • Nut butters to dip apples, bananas, pears or celery into
  • No-sugar-added homemade granola with plenty of nuts, unsweetened coconut, and/or cocoa nibs or chocolate chips.

How to Beat Summer Allergies Excerpt from WebMD Spring’s over, but you’re still stopped up, sniffly, and sneezing.   Welcome to summer allergy season. It keeps going long after April’s showers and May’s flowers are gone.   Many of the same triggers are to blame. Once you know what they are, you can take steps to get treated.   Pollen Is the Biggest Culprit   Trees are usually done with their pollen-fest by late spring. That leaves grasses and weeds to trigger summer allergies.   The type of plant to blame varies by location. Those most likely to make you sneeze or sniffle include:   Weeds     Ragweed     Cockleweed     Pigweed     Russian thistle     Sagebrush     Tumbleweed Grasses     Bermuda     Blue grasses     Orchard     Red top     Sweet vernal     Timothy   Ragweed is one of the most common summer allergy triggers. It can travel for hundreds of miles on the wind. So even if it doesn’t grow where you live, it can make you feel bad if you’re allergic to it.   Smog: It’s Worst This Time of Year   Summer air pollution can make your symptoms worse. One of the most common is ozone. It’s created in the atmosphere from a mix of sunlight and chemicals from car exhaust. Summer’s strong sunlight and calm winds create clouds of ozone around some cities.   Critters That Sting Are More Active   Bees, wasps, yellow jackets, hornets, fire ants, and other insects can cause allergic reactions when they sting. If you have a severe allergy, a run-in with one of them could lead to a life-threatening situation.   Insect bites usually cause mild symptoms, like itching and swelling around the area. Sometimes they lead to a severe allergic reaction, though. Your throat feels like it’s swelling shut, and your tongue might swell. You could feel dizzy, nauseated, or go into shock. This is an emergency, and you'll need to get medical help right away.   Tiny Things Grow in Warm Air   Molds love damp areas, including the basement and bathrooms. Their spores get into the air and set off an allergic reaction.   Microscopic insects called dust mites peak during summer. They thrive in warm, humid temperatures and nest in beds, fabric, and carpets. Their residue can get into the air and set off sneezes, wheezes, and runny noses.   Symptoms are pretty much the same as those that troubled you in the spring:       Runny nose     Watery eyes     Sneezing     Coughing     Itchy eyes and nose     Dark circles under your eyes

Is Your Gut Dirty Enough for Mental Health?

How to enhance your mood through your microbiome

Seeking the Root Cause of Mental Health

Want to improve mental clarity? How about reducing anxiety and depression? The answer could be in dirtying up your diet. Creating a diverse and thriving microbiome is key to all aspects of health, and mental health is no exception.  

In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month, and with nearly 8% of American adults currently suffering from depression and over 18% from anxiety, it is increasingly urgent to explore why. What could cause so significant a portion of us to go to battle within our own brains? 

Well, Old Man Winter usually takes the brunt of the blame. His cold temperatures and gray skies are, for many, too much to endure for an extended period of time. However, scientists are beginning to wonder if a different kind of environment may be a key player. Though it is not one we can step into; rather it resides within us. This “environment” is our microbiome, and even though we may call it “ours,” only a slice is made of our own material. The rest is populated by 10—100 trillion foreign bodies, mostly bacteria, that outnumber our own cells ten to one. It’s easy to imagine how these tiny tenants play their respective roles in digestion or immuno-interactions, but what may surprise you is the subtle ways in which they may affect our mental state. 

The Gut-Brain Connection

At the root of the relationship between our mind and our microbes is the nervous system, a major mode of communication between the two. The vagus nerve, specifically, directly links the stomach to the brain, transmitting the hormonal, neuronal, and bacterial changes occurring in the bowel. Some of the traffic travelling this route are the neurochemicals produced by gut bacteria in the hundreds, which the brain depends on to regulate physiological and mental processes, including mood. Notably, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and serotonin both bloom in the microbiome, the latter originating there almost entirely. Serotonin is thought of as a mood stabilizer, reducing depression and regulating anxiety. GABA, similarly, is considered to have a calming effect, and is believed to reduce anxiety and fear. Here we begin to see the significance that our micro-stowaways have when it comes to our mental state: they carry much responsibility for our chemical balance. 

Looking out the window, considering spring, a parallel can be drawn. No matter how much work pollinators put in, our backyard biomes will bud-up only if they are well nourished; bright sunlight, fertile soil, and fresh rainwater must be had for plants to flourish. Our microbiomes are similar in this way. As the flower in our pot needs nourishment, so does the flora in our gut. Yet with our brain, stomach, and vagus nerve in place, populated by a plethora of bacteria that are supposed to be producing mood-managing neurotransmitters, we still struggle with feelings of fear, anxiety, and depression.

Superfood: Basil

Nutritional Benefits of Basil

from: http://www.webmd.com/food-reci... Basil. With its distinct aroma and leafy good looks, this plant is one of the most widely known and grown herbs in the world. Often associated with Mediterranean cooking, basil is native to India and Asia as well as parts of Africa. Sweet basil is the most common, but dozens of other varieties include lemon, cinnamon, and Thai. This member of the mint family has been used as a medicinal plant, and its oils and extracts are said to have antioxidant and antibacterial properties. Fragrant fresh basil, for instance, offers a healthy dose of blood-clotting vitamin K -- 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh basil provide 27% of the RDA -- as well as vitamin A, manganese, and magnesium. (You can find more vitamin K in green leafy veggies such as cabbage, cauliflower, kale, and spinach -- but talk to your doctor if you’re taking a blood thinner such as warfarin; you don’t want too much or too little K.) Use fresh basil whenever possible, and when cooking with it, add to the dish during the last few minutes for maximum flavor.

Baked Pesto Chicken Recipe

Preparation of the Baked Chicken Pesto:

Ingredients:

  • 2 (16 oz total) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • kosher salt and fresh pepper to taste
  • 4 teaspoons Pesto (see instructions below)*
  • 1 medium tomatoes, sliced thin
  • 6 tbsp (1.5 oz) shredded or regular mozzarella cheese
  • 2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:

  1. Wash chicken and dry with a paper towel. Slice chicken breast horizontally to create 4 thinner cutlets. Season lightly with salt and fresh pepper.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400° F. Line baking sheet with foil or parchment if desired for easy clean-up.
  3. Place the chicken on prepared baking sheet. Spread about 1 teaspoon of pesto over each piece of chicken.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Remove from oven; top with tomatoes, mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Bake for an additional 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

*Ingredients for the Pesto:

  • 3 to 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup pine nuts, slivered almonds or walnut halves
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, or to taste (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 4 packed cups chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for storage
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • Crushed red pepper flakes to taste (optional)
 
  • Preparation of Pesto
  • Put the garlic in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped.
  • Toss in the nuts, Parmesan, if using, pepper and salt and chop until the nuts are finely crushed, about 1 minute.
  • Add the basil, oil and lemon juice and pulse for 1 minute more, until smooth.
  • Stir in red pepper flakes, if desired.
  • To store, transfer the pesto to a sterilized jar with a tight-fitting lid. Pour a thin layer of olive oil on top of the pesto, seal and refrigerate up to 10 days or freeze up to 3 months.

What is NAET?

Did you know that many ailments and conditions – such as the common cold, arthritis, migraines, constipation, eczema, infertility, anxiety, behavioral disorders and much more – are the result of undiagnosed allergies or intolerances? When left untreated, intolerances can escalate and become serious chronic illnesses. Luckily, there’s a solution. Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique, or NAET®, is a non-invasive, drug free, natural process that eliminates “allergies” of all types.

By combining Eastern and Western healing practices such as acupuncture, allopathy, chiropractic, nutrition, and kinesiology, NAET® works to re-program your negative neuroimmune response toward an offending substance, shifting it to a more appropriate response whenever your body comes into contact with that substance in the future.
