When it comes to playing sports and getting ready to play sports, it is imperative to make sure your child has no reflexes present.

If you are unaware of what gluten is, it’s a protein found in wheat. Many people will say their kids have been tested by an allergist, but they don’t test all aspects of your immune system against all the proteins in wheat. They may only test IGM or IGE response and not even look intoContinue reading “Change your child’s environment to change your child’s Life P.2”
The world that we live in has drastically changed in the last 40-50 years. As humans, we can only adapt to changes or stressors at a specific rate.
