Do you wear glasses??

Do you wear glasses??

I've done the medicated route - I've done the unmedicated route.

For me - I just need glasses.

Trust me, I know that meds don't solve all my problems but that's where friendships, coping skills, and my oils come in to play.

I use my oils for natural health and to compliment my meds.....

...when I need a little extra help focusing.
...when I'm starting to feel overwhelmed and need a little help to calm down and center myself again.
...when I'm being hard on myself for what I see as screw-ups and just need to forgive myself and keep going.

As The ADHD Mama says this video, if you need glasses you need glasses. You may need a little help or you may be like me and your hand goes fuzzy 6 inches in front of your face.

Trust don't want me driving around without my glasses/contacts......just trouble waiting to happen.

Any of this sound familiar?

Hormonal Squirrels - What's the Connection?

Hormonal Squirrels - What's the Connection?
Ha ha - here we go again with squirrels.....well...there's a reason.

Did you know that there is a HUGE correlation between issues with your endocrine system (hormone factory of the body) and the disruption of brain development that can sometimes lead to ADHD (squirrel issues)?

Our endocrine system is a collection of glands that produce hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, reproduction, sleep, and mood.   This body system is SO incredibly sensitive it can be altered by a change no bigger than one tenth of a trillion of a gram?   I'd say that's pretty touchy.

Did you know there's was a 43% increase in reported cases of ADHD between 2003 and 2011?  Or that cases of Autism have risen 119% since 2000?  But what does that have to do with our hormones?   Endocrine disruptors are synthetic chemicals hidden in products we interact with DAILY.  When's the last time you REALLY looked at the ingredient list on something?

  • cosmetics
  • toothpaste
  • detergents
  • medicines
  • pesticides
In small doses this may not do much.....but when you brush your teeth twice daily?  Wash you and your family's clothes weekly, when you put your make up on every morning?    How old are you?  20 something? 30 something?   So that means, if my parents started brushing my teeth at the age of one, and I've only ever brushed my teeth once a day, by the time I turn 40 I have exposed myself to the endocrine disrupting chemicals in toothpaste 14,235 times!!    1 grain of salt may not do much but if you put a cup of salt in a recipe, it will definitely throw things off.

My challenge to you, should you choose to accept it, next time you grab your toothpaste to brush your teeth....take a look at the list of ingredients and google a couple of them.
