Bringing home a newborn baby can be overwhelming. Let alone when your newborn is constantly cranky, upset and uncomfortable for no known reason.
Helping your child can be as easy as changing your diet. Get yourself tested for food intolerances because they are often the cause of your baby’s distress!
Recently, patients of mine brought home their newborn baby boy. Despite being a happy and calm baby, he began crying non-stop during and following breastfeeding. He also spit up more than normal, could not tolerate being flat on his back, had mucous in his stool, and had a rash on his stomach and face.
They tried everything to settle him while nursing but nothing worked. They even received help from a lactation consultant, talked to nurses, and had a consultation with a pediatrician; none of which helped their little boy.
Seven out of 10 people who come into my office for heavy metal testing have abnormally high levels of heavy metals.
Are you, your significant other, or your employees home for breakup from the oilpatch?
It is common for individuals working in the oil and gas industry to have high levels of heavy metals stored in their bodies.
If left untreated, heavy metals continue to accumulate in your body, between one breakup and the next, because once stored there is no way for the body to rid them on its own.
Pushing through every day feeling tired despite sleeping 12 hours. Constant cravings for sugar and carbohydrates that will not go away.
Having happiness and excitement for life that has been replaced with sadness and irritability. Your spouse is frustrated and confused by your mood and you do not blame them because you do not know what is going on either.
If you find yourself feeling like this, you may be struggling with depression and now is the time to take control of it!
In 2007, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revealed that antidepressants became the most frequently prescribed drug, ahead of medications for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and asthma.
