He’s also a 80% deaf and so we have a lot of challenges in our house and he requires a lot of attention. I also have evacuees living in my house since October from Hurricane Michael, and before hurricane Michael I was taking care of my mother who had cancer ..  Before all that I was a mom to teenagers . My daughter she lived with us going through nursing school.  So I’ve been there I know what it’s like to have a house full and I know what it’s like to have obstacles to overcome. But I still manage and that’s how I’m paying it forward to y’all today.

I’m going to share with you some of my my insight into this and some of my tricks into this because we don’t want to feel guilty for working on our job our business. We don’t want to feel guilty and we definitely don’t want to feel like we’re neglecting our family. But if you give attention to one more than the other you will struggle with success.

The neurotoxin “pandemic – Dual Diagnosis Down Syndrome and Autism

💛💙October is National Down syndrome awareness month!
Normally I would share something about acceptance, inclusion or a general fact about Down syndrome!

🙄The fact is more needs to be shared about the health of kids! Many suffer from Obesity, diabetes, Thyroid issues, respiratory issues and Autism!

😮Yes The Dual diagnosis of Autism in Children with Down syndrome is still not talked about enough! 1 in 20 Children with Down syndrome are also diagnosed with Autism! My son is one of them!

👉I want to share something that I wish I new 16 years ago, because if I did just maybe my son would be higher functioning. 😪

The neurotoxin “pandemic! It is a real thing, and something parents need to be aware of. 🤔Is it really Autism, or could it be because our children are already so vulnerable that become victims of Neurodevelomental toxicity! Yes I said it!!

👉You don’t have to take my word on it, just GOOGLE IT the research is there! 👈

🍃I believe that our kids have already so much to overcome, so many health and cognitive issues right into adult hood, so why take a chance!

👉16 years ago, I did not know the effects my every day household products might have on my sons brain development!😥 There was not internet, no research readability available, and there certainly were not safer alternatives that actually worked.

🍃Today there is!! I love that I can get everything I need from one store🛒, to make my home a safer less toxic home for my son!!

For a brief moment yesterday I had considered going back into the corporate world.  It was a very brief moment! 

For a brief moment yesterday I had considered going back into the corporate world. 😱
It was a very brief moment! ☝️
Something was dangled in front of me and for a moment my mind wandered.
But then…..
.
.
.
🗯️I asked myself was I willing to give up my time freedom?
💸Was I willing to fork over a lot of money for help with my son?
☹️Was I willing to give up doing what I love to do?
🙄Was I willing to line the pockets of someone else instead of me?

🙌At the age of 53 I wish I understood what all this represented years ago!

😮Maybe I wouldn’t have spent 8 years driving 60 miles a day, paying over $100 a week for day care, just to break even every month after bills.

😷Maybe I wouldn’t have been so stressed out to have made myself physically sick and become obese!

😭Maybe I would have been able to be there more for my kids when they needed me!

👩‍🍳Maybe I wouldn’t have spent many years waiting tables and working double shifts just to make ends meet while at the same time missing out on some precious mommy moments.

👀Looking back though I can say I am grateful for the opportunities! I grew as an individual with each experience, and discovered some new passions!
I was able to help a lot of people something I am passionate about doing!

🤔However, I honestly don’t know how I did it. For 8 years, The 60 miles a day commute alone sucked! I was in my car more hours in a day than I was at home!

Now my days are not dictated by a time clock or supervisor! They are
– On My terms
– I drive when I want to
– I have time now to take care of me
– I am healthier
– I am still helping others
– I am always available for my kids now
– I no longer break even in the bank every month⬆️
– I get to enjoy being me

No I am not retired!
💃I chose to live a life that that I design!!

Are you doing everything you can to fight Osteoporosis??

Are you doing everything you can to prevent Osteoporosis??🙄

This is an “OMG I can’t believe I did that” look! AND a “thank God it’s done” look! 😱🏋🏼‍♀️ It was a hard workout!

🧘Exercise is just ONE aspect of a wellness journey, but one this 53 year old is not quitting even though it kicks my arse sometimes! 🥵

👩‍🏫There were many reasons I started my wellness journey back in 2015 one of them was preventing Osteoporosis.

👵You see as a young child I watched my grandmother suffer horribly with this disease. I remember her back braces, her hunch back, her wheelchair, and yes even her pain. ☹️
.
.
SO as I began to age I knew I had to take better care of myself.👌 ➡️Osteoporosis does run in families. …but it doesn’t mean you will get it. So it is especially IMPORTANT to STRENGTHEN your bones through EXERCISE and a healthy DIET if you have this risk factor. But now….

🚨 NOW there is NEW RESEARCH!! 🚨

When I started converting my family to being TOXIN FREE I learned about the toxin Tricolsan. New research is showing that there is a direct link between this toxin, other endocrine distributors, and Osteoporosis. 🤬
Thank goodness these are no longer common in my home and products that we use daily !

Common Products Linked To Osteoporosis

🤷We can’t control our destiny nor our genetics, but what we can control is what comes into to our home; and goes into and on our bodies.

🛒🛍️So glad I found our shop club with over 400 toxin free products for my family.
