“Avoid all bread and wheat products, unless…”

“… it’s 100% Organic and non-GMO.” That’s from The JuiceLady.

It’s a Monsanto (Roundup) thing, but here is her article with the details.

A New Word We Have To Learn

Here is a very good article on the causes of Autism from a newsletter that usually has pretty good stuff.

The new word is “dysbiosis” which means imbalance of bacteria. So, “intestinal dysbiosis” is a bad thing. I have been saying for a while that we would be hearing more and more about probiotics and their relationship to what causes health or disease. Here the story is about Autism, but there are many stories that, in one way or another, lead back to the gut and the gut bacteria, good and bad.

This is just one reason we recommend the JuicePlus+ products: they have added probiotics to the whole food powders. Along with the enzymes they have added and the sugar that is taken out, it just doesn’t get any better when it comes to supplementing your diet with nutrition that will cause health.

Here is a YouTube video with more details on what happens when the bacteria get out of balance…

Just Another Form of Exercise?

Bill Douglas of the World Tai Chi & Qigong Day site shared this in his most recent email newsletter.

Autism & Tai Chi, Kung Fu & Qigong

Helping children with special needs can be a challenge. And while a number of state and local agencies exist to help parents with special needs children, several avenues of help are often overlooked or ignored: Kung Fu, Tai Chi Chuan, and Qi Gong. In 2004, I began training a group of ten children; doctors thought my approach was voodoo. But eventually all of the autistic children dropped out of the medical treatment programs in which they were enrolled and stopped taking the drugs that were part of the medical treatment. Working with the kids, I began by teaching beginning Shaolin Kung Fu stances and footwork (to work the inner yin and outer yang pressure points in their feet). The students then began learning Tan Tui’s, which allowed them to work both sides of their bodies. Working both sides of the body made changes in the brain, connecting the two hemispheres. Most Kung Fu systems use the same basic training, stances and forms, and most of these forms teach right / left and circular movements. The kids practiced gentle tai chi movements, again to improve their left-right coordination and body control. I also had them run, tumble, jump, throw, and catch balls as well as practice coordinated kicks. When I started working with this group of kids I spoke to my Sifu Grand Master Kam Yuen seeking his advice. He gave me some instructions on changing the children’s energy field using Chinese Energetics. And he said don’t label or lump them together as Autistic; each child is unique. Barbara Soraniono, whose pediatric therapist referred her and her son Max to the class was ecstatic: “I’m so happy this class is offered. Already we see improvement in his motor skills and greater a body and self-confidence.”

Special thanks to Dr. Sifu Nadine Shozuya who also taught these classes, and to Larry Barkley for helping with the article.

Autism Improved with Qi Gong

Autism is one among a great many conditions that benefit from Tai chi and Qi gong. This is from the World Tai Chi & Qi Gong folks.


“Research indicates Qigong can help children with Autism. Austism is growing at a disturbing rate. Autism is only one of the many major health issues that T’ai Chi and/or Qigong are PROVEN to help with. Yet, most people remain ignorant of these powerful tools, as their health professionals too often only inform about drug solutions or surgical approaches. This was one of the reasons World Tai Chi Day was first created.”
