I was just having this conversation online, and decided it was a good topic to address in an actual Post. I was responding to a book, that looks at how our society and doctors and schools are using heavy drugs, like anti-psychotics on our CHILDREN!
This bothered me on SO MANY levels! Why is our system continually throwing quick BAD solutions at complex problems?
There are so many contributing factors to our kids behaviour! It SUCKS that educators and doctors just want to drug them, and doctors are profiting from it as well! Continue reading
Recently, as I have been offline, so to speak- developing my Alzheimer training course- I have been doing a lot of reading, talking and discussion about various strategies for proactive programs to work with Alzheimer and dementia patients– particularly as they are progressing into the moderate to severe stages of the conditions.
I have been reading and discovering through my own work, what an impact exposure and seemingly low-impact things.. can have in the support of brain… and more… what I refer to as ” being present.” Continue reading
I know I have been “offline” a good bit lately. But, that is because I have been working on developing video training series for Alzheimers: Practical Tips and Tools for Caregivers, Family Members, and Practitioners
I have just completed and am about to launch: Holistic and Practical Support for Alzheimers. This series is designed to provide support for family members, caregivers and practitioners who work with alzheimers patients or clients- or live with a family member. the series is broken down into nine sections -over 140 minutes of information on diet and nutrition, detoxing the body and the GUT, vitamins and minerals, herbs and supplements, exercise, behavioural support, cognitive support and caregiver support.
What you will learn in this series:
A medical and functional understanding of what takes place
How dietary changes can minimise the uncontrolled activity and emotional outburts/ frustrations
Vitamins and supplements that support cognitive function and minimise stress/anxiety/activity
The role and benefit of exercises and activities, and suggestions to implement them.
Stay tuned for information on signing up, and for our Early Bird Special!
Autumn is one of those times of the year that seems to bring on deep reflection. Maybe it’s the leaf-musty slightly damp weather that holds something of both warmth and sadness. A wistfulness intrinsically woven through the mist that loops its magic fingers into the sleepy world.
I’m not sure why how this question came to me… I think it was a combination of a song lyric that I had just heard… something about being near the end… I think the lyric went; this is where we start again. But my wandering thoughts, following the random nature of the autumn mist- took their own turn. If this is the end… or near the end… was it worth it? That was a thought-stopping question, for me. I don’t know. while Recovering from bubonic-flu plague, is probably not the best time to contemplate deep-meaning questions…. but there it was…. Continue reading

spiritual and spirituality, spiritual but not religious….
Buzz terms that are all over these days. But spirituality is one of those vague terms, like the term healing– which I will address in a later posting topic– a vague term, in that there doesn’t seem to be a real tangible definition… but many people use the term spiritual to define their outlook or approach to life.
I use it a lot myself. And I realised today, that I’ve acquired a “sense of the word,” without ever really codifying it for myself. I have done this a lot with Quechuan terms, such as ayni. Ayni is a term that I love, and use a lot. It is the cornerstone of the Andean and Peruvian cosmology. But it is a word for which there is no direct translation. The word spiritual is beginning to feel like this kind of foreign word, when I try to pin it down. Does that make sense? Just like Ayni… Continue reading
