I have found over years, through training and experience, that most practitioners, even the best autism doctors, often miss the step of DRAINAGE in helping kids recover from the health issues underlying the symptoms of autism.
In this video, which originally was a Facebook Live video and can be found on our Facebook page, I explain what drainage is and why it's such an important thing for your child. If fact, it's not just important, it is critical.
Why? If your child isn't draining out waste, it's going to be a lot more challenging for anything – like that wonderfully nutritious food and those great (and expensive) supplements – to get into where the nutrients need to go, the cells. Not to mention the hours of therapy your child receives.
As I explain in the video, drainage starts at the cellular level. Our cells are constantly making and breaking down things and need to get the waste out. The lymphatic system, like a sewer system, carries that waste away from the cells and to our major elimination systems.
The main way we let go of waste is through the digestive tract (think poop!), our urinary system, the skin, and the lungs.
If your child isn't pooping 1-4 times per day, or it looks like little rabbit pellets or your child struggles just to eliminate, that's constipation. That can back up the elimination channels and create unwanted behaviors, like aggression and anxiety, among others.
The liver and gall bladder, both parts of the digestive tract, can also be congested and not functioning optimally. Your liver is detoxifying all the time. Your gall bladder helps by storing the toxin-containing bile. From there, the toxins flow through the intestines and out the anus, hopefully in a very timely manner.
In the video, I talk about what helps get these sluggish systems get moving better. It's typically homeopathic remedies. And recent supplements containing carbon technology with herbs are extremely effective. But I find with someone so sensitive already, the herbs can be a bit overwhelming, unless we go really slowly with herbs. This will be up to the individual constitution, genetics, toxin load, and other unique factors for a person.
I encourage you to check with your autism specialist doctor, nutritionist, functional health practitioner, or other person you're working with to help your child with drainage. If you don't have that resource, we can help.
We are able to assess the drainage systems of the body and guide them to open so your child releases toxic stressors efficiently, and effectively, without increasing behaviors like anxiety, OCD, anger/tantrums, stimming, poor sleep, and more.
At this point Luminara is working with clients on a longer-term basis, as that is what it takes to achieve the transformations you wish to see for your child
- improved eye contact
- progressing to more expressive speech from one word needs
- choosing a greater variety of foods s/he will eat
- responding to her or his name
- ability to focus and attention to play or do school work
- calm, decreased aggression and rigidity in behaviors, timing and routine
We really wish you could take a pill and see changes in your child. However, cleaning up the body and getting it functioning again is a process, and is dictated by the pace of your child's body.
We work with you for a minimum of 10 months, which is the shortest time possible to go through our drainage and detox protocol. We can just go through assessments and the protocol. Or we can work in a much more customized manner combining our drainage/detox protocol with NeuroModulation Technique, which speeds the process.
Interested in seeing your child transform to more calm, connected, communicative?
Schedule a Discovery Call with us to see if we are
a fit for working together.
* In order to make the most of our time together, we ask for some info about your child before we start a call.
