Neurotoxins and Epilepsy

Over the past weekend I came across some research I had done previously, about excitotoxins (neuro-toxins) and some of the common symptoms that they cause. One of the more common side effects are seizures. This is near and dear to me because my cute adorable niece, who is in 1st grade, was recently diagnosed with general seizure disorder. Some of the neurotoxins that we seem to ingest on a daily basis include aspartame and MSG. Unfortunately there is msg hidden in almost everything. I try to avoid it but find out that I can't always avoid it.

It saddens me to see so many children out there, eating this junk. We had 3 girls over for the weekend, 10, 12, and 13 years old. All they wanted was junk food. So I made them what they would normally eat: Pizza, Mac and Cheese (with msg in the cheese sauce), cold cereal with high fructose corn syrup, along with genetically modified corn as the grain, soda pop with high fructose corn syrup, Capri Sun fake juice with high fructose corn syrup, chips galore with gobs of MSG, ice cream cones. I think the ice cream probably was the healthiest thing for them!!! Scary, huh!? At least I provided them raw milk, with tons of nutrients in it. Try getting them to eat veggies, fruits, even water! no way!!

I realize that this stuff is what is fed to most of our kids. No wonder so many of them are sick! Mental disorders, ADHD, learning disabilities, depression. I would be depressed and sick in the head, too, if I was exposed to all of this. What ever happened to eating home-cooked meals at the table with the family? Homemade mashed potatoes (not the boxed instant mashed potatoes, as they usually have MSG in them as well). Make your own gravy! Steamed or frozen veggies, a grilled chicken breast. How delicious is that! And if you make pasta, why not make your own spaghetti sauce? Boil the tomatoes, process them in the food processor, and spice them up as you simmer them on the stove with some Italian sausage!!

And, for overall healthy living, or even getting your health back, use my detox foot pads for a month straight. The detox foot pads can be used on children -- newborns, teenagers, and everyone in between. Don't let your children suffer the consequences of poor eating, poor nutrition, obesity, illness, learning disorders, etc. (MSG is what scientists use on lab rats to decrease their IQ). So try them out now. Children even seem to sleep better when they are wearing the foot pads. A well-rested child is a treasure!
