FEELING GUILTY ABOUT PASSING ON TOXIC METALS TO YOUR CHILDREN

I have been informed by many mothers that they feel very guilty that they passed on toxic metals to their children during their pregnancy. I felt the same way when I got back my daughter’s first hair mineral analysis. It was full of toxic metals. I thought, “How could I have done this to my child?”.
Here is the answer. Most people do not realize that everyone has toxic metals. Yes, we can change our lifestyle and make better choices to have healthy babies. It would be much better to make these changes years before pregnancy, but that is not always the case, as with my daughter.
Also, we do not know why some babies and children choose us to be their parents and then suffer with various problems thanks to our imbalances, both physical and emotional. So please reserve judgment on yourself!
The hair mineral analysis and nutritional balancing program guided me as to what I can do now to help turn back the hands of time and strengthen her little body.
My daughter, Ava, was premature by 8 weeks. Ava was sick from birth. She would develop serious infections every month or two that required a visit to the emergency room. She never slept well, and often had hour-long temper tantrums. She was very obsessive and compulsive about her crib and other things. One doctor told us she was probably going to be diagnosed on the spectrum of autism. She had no hair until age 2, so that is when I placed her on a nutritional balancing program with Dr. Wilson.
We noticed in the first 4 months on the nutritional balancing program that we had not taken her to the hospital, which had been a common occurrence. She still had the other symptoms but was not sick. Then she started to sleep better. She is nowhere near any autism spectrum.
She is very smart and we have been told by her teachers that she has excellent retention for a 5-year-old. I notice as she eliminates toxins and metals that she may get moody or obsessive, but it passes quickly, usually in an hour or two. These “healing reactions” are usually rashes that come and go. For example, she had dry, red patches for over a year on the areas where she got vaccines. These are most likely reactions as the poisons come out, and are welcome signs of healing.
A DIFFERENT LITTLE GIRL
The hair analysis and nutritional balancing program has changed my daughter’s life forever. She is learning what foods are nutritious, and what is junk. She loves using a child-sized sauna every day that my husband built specially for her. She insists on going in on her own for 15 to 20 minutes, while I sit outside and look in to make sure she is safe. She is also learning and loving being in charge of herself and learning to rest, sleep and learn how to take care of herself properly, which is priceless.
So, once again, we do not always understand why things are the way they are. Perhaps babies and mothers choose certain challenges for their lives. Also, mothers need to know that the fault may not lie with them as much as with the mainstream medical and public health and government communities. They simply do not understand nutrition and do a terrible job with prenatal care. Prenatal care should begin years before a woman becomes pregnant. And it must include a hair mineral analysis and a nutritional balancing program, as many young women look very good and may even feel good, but their bodies are still quite toxic and depleted. This is the only way I know to detect what is really going on.
After the pregnancy and birth, the doctors drug and vaccinate the children instead of healing them, so they become even less healthy. As a result, mothers are caught in a system that needs to change at all levels. Please do not feel guilty because it really will not help you or your child. Instead, sending in a hair analysis and starting a nutritional balancing program will help, as it did for me and many of my clients.
