Our family adopted the Paleo diet and lifestyle in 2010 after our younger daughter Charlotte had been diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder. We believe that Charlotte’s milk allergy and gut irritation was a result of an underdeveloped gut which led to issues with her immune system, nervous system, and ultimately caused her Autism.
The Paleo diet has rejuvenated her bodily systems with healthy nutrients that healed her stomach and improved her SPD & Autism symptoms. We have been in a constant battle for additional services for her, due to her tremendous improvement and movement along the Autism Spectrum.
The Paleo lifestyle of diet, exercise, limiting stress and getting adequate sleep has helped my husband and I deal with the stress that has accompanied our daughter’s issues. In addition, the Paleo diet has helped me fight Adrenal Fatigue and many hormone related issues that came about due to a depleted system afeter giving birth.
You will find that our blog and story is unique in the sense that we don’t follow the typical rules of social media. We use this space to reflect on our experiences in posts that are designed to help others understand how we use the Paleo lifestyle to enhance the quality of our lives. If you haven’t heard from us in several weeks or months, we are still here. We are just busying raising our kids, cooking, exercising, getting outdoors, and getting good sleep.
