Learning Difficulty or Vision Problem?

When a vision problem is at the root of a child’s struggles with learning, the signs are very easy to see – when you know what to look for. Unfortunately, the signs can easily be mistaken for learning difficulties and/or attention problems. Children don’t know how they are supposed to see, so the only way they can tell you they have a vision problem is with their behaviour. One of the signs of a vision problem is a short attention span when it comes to reading and learning. A developmental vision evaluation could open the door to your child’s success.

Are You Too Acidic?

If you have acid reflux, gout, kidney stones, osteoporosis, dental disease, or cancer, these all can be considered symptoms of chronic acid states.
We can do better! Stop covering up symptoms with prescription medications and start managing the symptoms from the root cause.
Help your body out by eating a diet of plant-based whole foods that are rich in fibre, such as whole grains, vegetables, and fruit. The take-home message here is to start restoring equilibrium and physiology with lifestyle choices that will help return the body to a more balanced, alkaline state. Ionized alkaline water helps support this effort!

Serrapeptase – The Little Miracle Enzyme!

Proven to be a safe and effective natural alternative to NSAIDs (drugs like aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen), Serrapeptase breaks down long protein chains into amino acids that the body needs. It helps to reduce pain and swelling associated with osteoarthritis, joint pain, carpel tunnel syndrome, and post-operative swelling. It even thins out mucous which in turn eases chronic sinusitis. Serrapeptase should be in a delayed release or enteric-coated capsule taken on an empty stomach. This allows the Serrapeptase to pass through the stomach to the small intestine, where the enzyme is then released.

Good Vision = Better Learning

Starting school is the perfect time to take your kid for a comprehensive eye exam. Some eye problems can’t be corrected as well if you wait until age 8 or 10. Eye exams are child friendly – your child doesn’t need to know his/her alphabet in order to have an accurate exam. 80% of a child’s learning is based on vision. Eye sight and health are critical for doing well in school. ALL children should have a thorough eye exam before they enter school. Eye exams are covered by MH for all children under 19 yearly.

Improve Your Focus & Concentration

Very often, the brain and nervous system become fatigued and overloaded. Much like a computer receiving too much data all at once, the brain can become overwhelmed, slow down, or even crash. This can result in an inability to focus, brain fog, memory loss, ADD/ADHD-like symptoms, a “wired” feeling, or the inability to cope with daily life. The key to turning these conditions around is to give the body what it needs to strengthen specific areas of the brain and nervous system. This can be achieved naturally with specialized nutritional formulations, which will replenish the body and alleviate symptoms.
