Take Responsibility!

By April 22, 2011Natural Health

Hello world. It’s been a while since my last post! What can I say, being mom is a full-time job! It doesn’t feel like a job though. It is amazing. Just watching my little boy grow every day brings me such joy! Being a mom though means that I have to make decisions that could affect Andrew’s life. As a parent I’m responsible for doing as much research as I can about vaccines and how they affect our bodies. I have to question why there’s been such a drastic increase in the amount of vaccines that children get today. Years ago children would get as many as 10 vaccines. Today they get as many as 32-36 vaccines. What is going on here? Thank goodness we have doctors out there who are questioning this as well and are coming up with alternative schedules. I urge you to take a closer look at the ingredients in the vaccines. Find out about the side effects guys. Don’t just go with what your doctor says! Read and learn!

Then, if the whole vaccine issue doesn’t give you a headache, trying to find food that isn’t full of pesticides will. Finding meat that hasn’t been pumped full of hormones will drive you crazy! The first three years of a child’s life are the most crucial when it comes to their diet and the food they consume. How many of you give your child animal crackers as a treat every day? Have you looked at the ingredients lately? Yes, made with high fructose corn syrup. Wonderful right? Not!! It’s so important now to read food labels. They will tell you a lot. A good rule of thumb is if you can’t pronounce the name of the ingredient, don’t buy it! My goal for Andrew is to help him live a life where his mental and physical health are not inhibited by the side effects of additives or chemicals. So, because of this I will do my absolute best to make only organic food for him. I will also be careful in giving him food that is processed.

So basically what I’m saying is, take responsibility for your child. Remember that doctors only spend a few hours in school learning about nutrition. There are many professionals who specialize in nutrition. For me, going to a Naturopath for advice on nutrition has been the best thing for my family. Making sure your child is eating a healthy diet is the best thing you can do for him. Be careful with your little one. We are so lucky that we are able to research any topic and find endless amounts of information. Help your child live his/her best life.

I hope all is well in your child’s world!
