Helpful Tools

Over the years, I have come to rely upon some all natural tool for my kids health. I have compiled the information here. Disclaimer: this information is not meant to diagnose or prescribe and is not meant to be a substitute for consultation with your chosen health care provider.

How to get kids to take their herbs
This can be tricky - particularly for our youngest kids and special needs kids. I have come up with a few ideas that have helped my kids take their herbs, that I will share with you here.

Law of Midnight and Midday
As the parent of a largely non-verbal autistic child - and as just a plain person - I have found this information to be very valuable. This chart tells you when the different organs are strongest and weakest. Discomfort of difficulty felt or observed at a consistent time can indicate important health needs. When my child was consistently waking at 3am, it implied that it was a lung issue. Giving her the right supplement (in this case ALJ) before she went to bed at night fixed the problem immediately.

Herbal First Aid Kit
There are some products that I want to have on hand for life's day to day health issues:

  • Ginger (Upset stomach)
  • Activated Charcoal (sour stomach - food poisoning, etc.)
  • Papaya Mint (Indigestion)
  • White Willow Bark (Natural Aspirin)
  • Silver Gel (Natural anti-infection gel)
  • Colloidal Silver (Preventative for cold and flu season)
  • 30c Boiron Arnica (for injury)
  • Yam Cream (if you have women in your home, this is a lifesaver!)

Muscle Testing (Kineseology)
I was first introduced to Muscle Testing years ago. At a Health Expo in Philadelphia a practioner told me that the watch I was wearing was making me "kinetically weak" and he could prove it. He had me hold my arm out in front of me and he could easily push on my arm and lower my hand while I had the watch on. He then told me to take the watch off and tried again. This time it was much more difficult for him to budge my arm and I was very impressed by the demonstration.

Later I learned that you can ask a body what it wants and it will answer you without having to go through the usual communication channels, using muscle testing. You can ask mundane questions (like is my hair red?) or health questions (like is this supplement good for me?) with the arm extended. To get the answer have someone else try to push the arm down - if it goes down, it's a NO. If the arm stays strong, it's a YES. This has been so very helpful with a non-verbal child. We've used this to determine dietary sensitivities (rather than subject our child to scratch tests) and even how many capsules we should use. Very interesting.

Byonetics Information / Support emails (posted with permission)
I sometimes get emails from Jean Genet of Byonetic, that I would like to share with you, that I post here. I just can't say enough good things about Jean Genet and his Byonetics CDs. As one of the first "vaccine injured" children, decades agao, he has gone on to help many parents and children dealing with autism with a great support group and effective sort of subliminal CDs. I think his information is so important, I have started a small section of things he has put out that I would like to share with you here.
