"I Healed My Child With Nutrition"

  • Health & Nutrition Series

    Come meet six brave parents and hear their stories about how they used nutrition to help their children get well.  Among these children, symptoms abounded: failure for hair and nails to grow, repeated abdominal pain and diarrhea, outbursts at home and school, pre-diabetic, adrenal failure, auditory processing disorder, developmental delays, refusal to eat, the list goes on.

    All are now well physically, socially, and emotionally.

    We hope to have an audience with more stories to tell and are planning a discussion-oriented session.

    PLEASE, pass this along to friends you may know who are coping with child health issues or simply are wanting to feed their children the best possible diet.  Raising awareness on the value of food as medicine is why we are offering this session.

    About the Series: Meetings are held on the third Saturday of most months.  Doors open at 2:45 and program ends no later than 5:15. The presentations, discussions, and yummy snacks hosted by the United Christian Parish of Reston. 

    It's Almost Free! $3 or $5 voluntary donations will be accepted.

    Address: 11508 North Shore Drive, Reston 20190.

    Directions: From the Toll Road, take Exit 12, turning right at the ramp light onto Reston Parkway.  Go north three traffic lights and turn right on Temporary Road.  Go one block to end and turn left on North Shore.  Drive 1+ miles.  The church is on the left, just past Lake Anne Elementary School and before Fairway Drive on the right.   For last-minute help, call Jack at[masked]-1880.

    Thanks to all the parents/individuals who came to the meetup yesterday, and to the panelists who shared their stories! The transformation stories were really inspiring. Thanks to those who were able to fill out the survey yesterday (on paper) and today (online). If you haven't gotten a chance to fill it out, here's the link: It will be really helpful to have more responses as it will help inform the writing of the piece. Cheers and wishing you all the best on your health journey! :)

    The stories and struggles were great to hear, and the life experience swap was helpful. I do believe, however, that we need to be careful about bashing wheat and grains. It reminds me of the low carb craze that seemed to swallow many WAPF events a few years ago and which Sally Fallon and others had to correct. There are many good reasons to eat grains (and I'd be happy to be part of panel or group that discusses why), and we must recall that many of the healthy groups that Dr. Price studied ate large amounts of grain (some of which had gluten), just like the groups tended to eat large amounts of carbs. So we must be careful to not confuse individual success stories of situations where avoiding grains (or other categories of foods) is necessary with general guidance. People have and can thrive on a variety of foods; dogmatism can be dangerous. Stepping down from my soapbox, the event was a wonderful success.

    I really enjoyed hearing how the parents were able to help their children. I was not able to hear everything, since I have tinnitus and sometime they were talking to softly for me to hear. If they had a mike it would have help me hear them better. Thank you.
