The Truth About Vaccines

People with SPD, ADHD, ASD, and diagnosis’s that significantly effect one’s nervous systems. Are at the biggest risks to be negatively effected buy vaccine ingredients.  And you might have been effected buy them and not know it.  Weather you believe the ingredients caused your disability (ies/challenges or not)   That is why it’s imperative you watch this series. And it won’t be free for to much longer. So go here https://go.thetruthaboutvaccines.com?ref=fbe2e88a-968e-4129-8a04-71495e454dd4 NOW to sign up. Warning- the info you will learn could make you REALLY mad/uncomfortable.  If you’ve missed some of it sign up anyway. Trust me. It’s worth it.

 

You will learn about way more then vaccines. Some of the episodes are intense- just being real.  So prepare for getting allot of energy and effort taken to watch them.

 

PS. This in my opinion (If you can afford it) Is worth buying too on it’s current sale prices.

Watch “Toxic Hot Seat” documentary FOR FREE

In the beginning of this past August I posted, to give you all a heads up, about a documentary that looks very good, but, off topic, called, “Toxic Hot Seat”. It is about the dangers of flame retardants in the US. In my previous post called “Movie, “Toxic Hot Seat”” I link you to the documentaries website, which remains to still have it’s trailer, among other things. I will be editing that post title to say documentary soon. There is also a very brief trailer on u tube (slightly over 2 mins to be exact) along with a 10 minute and 25 second, Filmmakers Q and A session on u tube about the documentary. Last August, I didn’t know how anyone, including me, could see the movie, realistically.

Movie- “Toxic Hot Seat!”

Would you like to lower your immunities? Or would you rather decrease, or prevent exposure to some, very dangerous, toxins? And EVERYONE else’s exposure, around you? Still with me?   Awesome! If you have Pyloria, MCS, or Sick Building Syndrome this could SAVE YOUR LIFE! But, people with impaired sensory defenses (Translation, with PSD), can also be especially, effected buy these chemicals/ toxic exposures. With that said, this effects EVERYONE.  Now go here, hereand then here.   

 

Then, if you figure out how to access this movie, possibly, before ME. Please do us ALL A FAVOR and share it in the COMMENTS section, ASAP.  Two of those links have MUST SEE trailers’.  If your setting up a showing near you (Even if I don’t live near you, other blog readers might.) if you know when it will be on HBO, or sold ANYWHERE, legally.  Even if it’s internationally. Although many of my readers are likely, US citizens.  PLEASE SHARE. Better yet, if you live somewhere with enough interest where you can access a showing venue. Set one UP! People will LOVE YOU for IT! And think about how good that would make you feel! Not to mention the free showing access for at least yourself! 

 

   Go! You can thank me, later! 

Neurological and Environmental Toxins. *

Neurological issues and environmental effects from toxins have been studied for over 33 years. Here’s proof. (if your interested, I was 1 yrs old for the first conference) in the US on neurotoxicity. See the history of them here.

http://www.healthandenvironment.org/?module=uploads&func=download&fileId=1167.   Download (No need to save)  and then look at pg 1-5. I promise it’s very easy to understand and not at all overwhelming.  I have added 1 paragraph on May 14th to the very bottom of this post ONLy. 

MCS however, has much more recently become a known and somewhat accepted diagnosis. Thanks (Unfortunately, in part due too the 911 tragedy in NYC) and the effected war veterans coming back from overseas.  There are people who obviously get it outside of those times/ experiences. However, they seam to be, very possibly, the minority. 

The first movie I recommend is Multiple Chemical Sensitivity: A Life Altering Condition (go here watch thito access to versions and the digital documented versions of them)to you shows mostly MCS individuals who got it in one of those environments initially. The second is called, 

Homesick: Living with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities.  http://www.amazon.com/Homesick-Living-Multiple-Chemical-Sensitivities/dp/B00FZ0R13O/ref=pd_ybh_24.     

Which highlights those with it who got it from other means. The first movie,(Regardless of which length you choose) has any where from a couple to atleast a few professionals who work for those with MCS. Some of the professionals with it have it also, but, not most. The Homesick movie shows 1 researcher, and no other professionals. How better to learn about a condition then through those who live with it day in and day out?  Also, the 2nd movie highlights how architecture and where you live can make a difference. 

  The first movie highlights more how fragrances effect those with this moderate to severe allergic or environmental MCS reaction to chemicals.  If you have the time, I’d watch the full 1 hr and 10 minute version. Even if you have to watch it broken up in smaller timed chunks. When I did this I hit pause/ stop. Then I’d go do my laundry or cook dinner and then came back too it not to much later. I did NOT close my browser and stop it. If your watching the free version of this I don’t recommend closing the window and coming back to it, anouther day for example.  I only watched the free version thus far. If you can’t, watch the shorter version (I haven’t seen those yet). / read the digital documents. Reviewing with the documents after watching any version of the video, can also be useful too.

    I don’t have MCS, but, I’m very glad I saw the videos I have. 

    Newer ad to this post – the 911 movies good but, I like the top two above much better. The 911 one is free and can be found on utube/ or the first MCS movie link page above. I saw it a couple weeks ago. But, just now decided to add here. 

 

Environmental Illness Conference’s

http://lindasepp.wordpress.com/2014/05/12/environmental-sensitivities-day-event-in-montreal. For the one in CANADA happening today. 

Coming up this summer there is one on July 7-10th in Las Vegas, Nevada. This one is an annual conference and isn’t likely in the same location every year.  For this one there are a variety of full scholarships available. The scholarships cover the conference a small spending money stipend. Most don’t seam to cover the hotel, travel expenses, and possibly some spending money.

More info about this international conference can be found here ! http://www.neha2014aec.org/about-ifeh

Around that time they also have a seperate training time block for students in the EI field and it’s surrounding career areas. Sadly, I can’t afford to attend anything like this . Even if on a full scholarship.

Scholarship info can be found here, for this upcoming conference- http://www.neha2014aec.org/2014-aec-scholarships.

A US EI conference in 2009 conference called “Healthy People in a Healthy Environment” in Atlanta Georgia. Done buy. the CDC ( Center of Disease Control) had a count of 1,30O nationally recognized attendees. Wow! To see the type of workshop detail they covered go here. http://www.cdc.gov/nceh/conference/

This one was last year in Mass. In the US. I show you past ones, partly, to help you see that environmental health is a huge and real topic, so, you can see the importance of these problems. And to help you find future ones if you can attend them, and they might apply to you, or those around you. Their are others. But, I highly recommend you look at the details of each before signing up. Not all of them will be at your level of understanding, or cover the exact smaller area within environmental health concerns that you may need to know more about.

I have not yet attended any of these.

Inflammation
By Julie Matthews

In today’s fast paced world, with little rest, overloaded with toxins, and devoid of nutrients, inflammation is very common. Once triggered, it can be hard to shut off – and if certain biochemical processes persist, chronic inflammation can ensue.

Inflammation acts like a fire in the body, literally burning up many of our necessary nutrients. Inflammation can be triggered by infections, irritants, and biochemical processes that have gone awry. It creates pain, and can lead to cellular damage and a cascade of health problems.

In fact, inflammation is underlying most neurological and chronic disorders in children and adults. All of following conditions have been linked to inflammation:

Autism • Asthma • Allergies • ADHD • Autoimmune conditions • Depression Anxiety • Inflammatory Bowel disorders • Eczema • Schizophrenia

Inflammation is a necessary process for the immune system. When the body can’t shut it off however, it can cause serious problems. Inflammation in linked to heart disease, obesity, and diabetes, as well as the myriad of mental health and mood conditions described above.

And some substances that people use to “help” inflammation, like over the counter anti-inflammatories and cortisone creams, are generally ineffective in the long run and can have harmful side effects.

So what can you do? Prevention is a good start; take charge of avoiding common causes of inflammation – things you can influence, like food choices and toxic exposures.

Gluten, dairy, and soy are major food sources of inflammation. Alcohol, processed foods, caffeine, and sugar are also inflammatory. Pesticides can trigger asthma (inflammation) in people, so eat organically whenever possible. Fish oil is a natural anti-inflammatory, as are a variety of herbal supplements. Phytonutrients found in fruits and vegetables, and spices have anti-inflammatory properties that can be helpful; however, for some people the salicylates and other food chemicals can cause inflammation.

Also, talk with your integrative physician about inflammatory lab markers, and appropriate medical treatment. Sometimes the inflammatory process needs to be stopped, and there are useful methods/meditations that can help. As you are exploring and working on this, I suggest beginning with the food, toxin and lifestyle factors that you can address at home. This may provide you some relief (mild to major) and help you and your doctor determine next steps.

Inflammation is the topic of the April Session of my Nourishing Hope Support Club, a monthly Membership Club for parents and clinicians actively employing specialized diets and nutrition. This April Session is OPEN for ANYONE to attend…member or not!

You will learn more about:
What causes inflammation
Which conditions have an underlying inflammation
Foods that cause and calm inflammation
How to address it: food, supplements, toxins and lifestyle factors
Avoiding common “anti-inflammatory” foods…that actually create inflammation in some people
Try out my Support Club …CLICK TO REGISTER to attend the April Session on Inflammation today!

The Session begins at 5pm, Wednesday April 30th!

Marketing Terms VS Reality

I hope your paying attention cause this post is incredibly important. These definitions as stated before are not regulated. However, after spending literally atleast 45 mins on several store visits to various grocery’s, pharmacy’s, and beauty stores (Only in there cosmetic isles), and other stores that sell beauty items.  And spending numerous hours online researching cosmetics, and ingrediants, along with trying several different supposively top of the line (sometimes) cosmetics and hair care over the last about 10 years. Hear is what these terms morally mean in the hair care and cosmetics industry.  Hear is also, what they DON’T mean just as importantly.   I can say that most manufacturers or marketing firms label these products with this moral code.  I can also say although I only purchased products sold in the US and not imported. That from my own online research it seams this is fairly universal.  However, the US seams to sell more variety then most if not any other country. So, it’s the easiest to see this hear.


Hypo-Allergenic -there are one or more ingrediants that tries to reverse any allergic response and is mild. If labeled this way without like I said, sensitive skin also labeled on it, and certain other things. It likely has irritants/ toxins. Hello! I’m buying a product that will give me issues yet then that will try to hide them/ fix them poorly? How does that make sense!? Just get the products without the irratants, etc. And you won’t need any hypo-allergic ingrediants.  Promise!  And like all the other definitions below . The product may have anything or everything else you don’t want in it.   And I guarantee you if it’s made in the US and likely, anywhere else they will have some if not many of these ingrediants/ byproducts types. Like, drying and burning, stinging alcohol, scents, preservatives, toxins, fragrances, unknown additives,  harsh cleaners,  exfoliating ingrediants, etc. 

 

Sensitive Skin- if a product says this along with unscented, fragrance free, alcohol free, hypoallergenic, and preservative free you’ll be GOLDEN 99% of the time if it isn’t all natural or organic.  But, nearly nothing does in the US. Off course, including some preservatives occasionally, and a couple toxins max, the products I’ll recommend in my book will be in that 1% . 

But, back to what it means. People who only have sensitive skin sometimes aren’t as sensitive as those with Roscia, Dyspraxia, and PSD in a combination. Or just compared to Roscia. Basically, there are certain ingrediants. That are super mild. That aren’t necessarily anti-allergenic reversal ingrediants. It means that product has atleast a couple of those mild ingrediants in it. It also may mean that they try to keep the harsher ingrediants out.  Also if a product says it’s great for sensitive skin but, it doesn’t clarify for people with Roscia too, and it doesn’t say atleast, free of preservatives, alcohols, unscented, and maybe hypoallergenic. It sometimes isn’t friendly for the most sensitive skin like roscia individuals or guaranteed to be sensory friendly. 

Again, it doesn’t mean the ingrediants are hypo-allergenic, alcohol free, unscented, preservative free, non toxic, fragrance free (although some occasionally are), non exfoliating, etc.

Organic or All Natural- It means no added or synthetic fragrances. It also means it’s likely to have a lot less if any by products hidden in it. It doesn’t mean it’s toxic free, unscented, alcohol free, hypoallergenic, or sensitive skin friendly, It’s at best, a product without 1 or 2 of those .  


   Although not helpful, in the PSD sensitivity learning process. Organic or All Natural also means.  That the majority of the ingrediants or the concentration of the main ingrediants. Is great enough to have the product made organically or with all natural ingrediants.  It is VERY rare for any product to be trully all natural. 


Alcohol free- Aren’t always however, if they have it- it is usually the milder types of alcohol that is known to be less irritating and problematic. And those alcohol types are often disguised.  Interested still?! 


Unscented-  provided there’s no buy products hidden in the product. And I guarantee you there 99.9 % of the time are. It will be unscented. Which means there won’t be any NATURAL fragrances or scents.   So, yes, this means it won’t be organic. 


Fragrance Free- It means there’s no added synthetic fragrance. Or there nasty carcinogens or by products that come with it. Yea! 

The bad news, 

It 99.9 % of the time guarantees there will be scents/ buy products. And very possibly a butch of other unhealthy undesired ingrediants. There maybe by products but, there won’t be tons, if there are. 


Now, if you like these moral codes, you might want to stop reading this blog.  Because, I certainly don’t. 



Common Categories of Irritating Ingredients

Did you know that fragrances aren’t the only thing people with SPD ( Sensory Processing Disorder)  are irritated by in skin hair and actually food products too? It’s true! And now I’m going to share with you some of the other types of ingredients/byproducts that can irritate people with sensory issues regardless of if they have rosacea,  ASD, or any other special need. 

Many of the ingrediants below can be toxic no matter how natural they are. Many will cause issues ( even if unknown at first or on the surface don’t)  to most people.  Not everyone with PSD will have sensory issues with all of the below ingrediants.   Just like having additives and preservatives in food aren’t ideal. Same idea with your skin and hair products too.   Not every ingrediant in each and every category is unhealthy. Certain categories however have a lot more irritants and problematic ingrediants then others. 

Just because 1 person with ASD/ SPD can eat something doesn’t mean they can tolerate it in all forms.  That’s part of what makes SPD so unique.  For example; I can eat organic olive oil just fine. If it’s the main ingrediant in my soap bar with no other ingrediant. The scent of it overwhelms me and gives me sensory issues. Now if I lessen the amount of olive oil in a bar of soap, I can be fine, if the other ingrediants are good for me.  ( Your welcome!  😉 ) 

Preservatives 

ex’s; hidden formaldehyde, 

even milder ones like the parabens,  

Borax,   DMDM Hydantoin,  and Kathon CG. 

 

Surfactants 

sodium-lauryl-sulfate, 

soap ( possibly NoT Always) and NoT the ones I recommend. Dove sensitive skin bar unfortunetly counts even if there is no fragrant or scent that will bother you. 

Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate may be derived from coconut. Among other ingrediants and additives that are also derived from coconut. Did u know some are allergic or sensitive to coconut?  

 scrub agents,   This does mean that people with serious enough sensory issues or PSD issues should definitely avoid at all costs most forms of exfoliation.


Skin Repairing Ingrediants, 

example- Aspirin


Plant Extracts 

 Balm Mint Extract  

CALENDULA EXTRACT. 

 Bloodwort or Yarrow Extract

 BLACK LOCUST EXTRACT

BIRCH BARK EXTRACT

CITRUS AURANTIFOLIA or known as Lime oil or extract anything citrus is very bad for you. 

Benzoin extract 

 

Oils 

Essential oil

Corriander oil 

Fern oil 

Angelica-Archangelica-root-oil 

Bay Leaf Oil

 

 Emulsifiers 

Irritant examples of these are

  triceteareth-4-phosphate. 

dicetyl-phosphate an ing. With byproducts and cetyl alcohol a known irritant. 

 

Do you know two of the most absolute worst ingrediants sometimes formed into oils that are anti-irritants? 

Unfortunately, there two of the most popular smelling tempted ingredients in cleaners, hair products, and skin products combined. 

Lavender otherwise known as.  

Lavendar Extract and Oil 

Lemongrass Oil 



Here are some very bad additional ingredients I would stay away from, no matter who you are.

Denatured alcohol, benzoyl peroxide, Daisy Flower Extract, Ethanol, Camphor, cinnamon, citrus-aurantium or orange blossom,   Acetic acid, Ylang ylang, calamine ( remember, Calamine Lotion?) , anise (also a vegetable) can cause skin sun sensitivity too. 

Aloe Vera and Caprylyl Glycol,  (although very rare) some are allergic too. From my little research of it, it doesn’t seam to be people with “normal SPD issues”. If there is such a thing.! It seams to be NT’s with an allergy to it.  But, I’m not allergic or sensitive too it either. If your not allergic to it,  Aloe can be great . The 2nd ingrediant, I’m still researching. However, aloe is super moisturizing, so don’t use if your skin is a combo skin type or oily unless soothing a sun burn.
