As I sit here on a rainy, windy day I thought I would take a few minutes to write a new post. My journey into nutrition has taken many twists and turns and I have found myself growing each year both in "book" knowledge and, most importantly, in "life" knowledge. Holistic nutrition is so much more than eating healthy. Instead, it concentrates on the individual with all of their weaknesses and flaws. I have learned that while each person has strengths in their constitution, there are also weaknesses in each and every client that I have come across. This weakness, or weaknesses in some people, can alter one's health and can affect other areas in the body. This weakness cannot always be "cured" but can often be helped.
After I became accredited as a GAPS Practitioner I found my practice growing by leaps and bounds. Many of my clients are children with autism and all of these children with autism are boys. Boys..... this leads me to other theories but I won't get into those here (maybe a future blog!). Through this I have realized a few things: the parents of autistic children are AMAZING. Truly AMAZING. The love that they pour out and what they will do to help their child is simply mind blowing. I often think of these parents, especially the moms (and many of them are single moms), and just think WOW. The things they go through, their dedication and the work they will do for their precious child is such a GIFT.
My true passion and love is working with these beautiful people: autistic children, children with learning disabilities, children with ADHD/ADD and with both children and adults suffering with mental illness of any sort. Because of this, I have made the decision to dedicate my practice to working with these individuals only. While I love working with all of my clients, I feel that the areas I mentioned are the ones that I would like to concentrate on for all future clients. This is my love!
