Holistic Approach to Wellness
We research and hand pick our resources and products for you so you don’t have to spend hours gathering information and guessing! We include recipe and shopping tips for gluten and dairy free lifestyle, books, links to websites, allergy testing and newsletters.
Visit our Holistic Resource page for links to doctors, natural pet care, environmental products and a new one I find extremely important as a clinical nutritionist; food drives that focus on healthy donations.
Lastly, spend a few minutes to check out the video called Autism Yesterday. It is very moving and will bring a deep understanding of the real struggles families are going through in dealing with Autism.
Resources & Support Groups
I would recommend you ask someone who can help you when you shop for body care products. There are literally hundreds of choices so pick one that best suits your needs and if they have samples try them first. Below are a few links to check out.
