Our last post was about a GAPS diet we were trying. It worked pretty well for two weeks but we got hit hard with RSV season and went into survival mode. We decided to put the diet on hold as it was to much to manage. I still want to do it but it might be something we try next year.
But I did want to write about something cool that we have discovered and it has definitely improved our lives. We came across Kangen water.
"Kangen Water® is healthy drinking water rich in minerals, purged of impurities, and ionized through electrolysis. Alkaline ionized Kangen Water® is an excellent choice for healthy hydration. Not only does it taste great and refreshing, but it also helps you avoid impurities AND save money!" copied from www.drinkfancy.com.
So I went to a demonstration and my boys started drinking the water. They just gulped it down like it was nothing. That night, they slept through the night. The next night, they slept through the night. Since then, they have probably slept throught the night about 90% of the time. Our 2 year old Max, he use to wake up and want milk about 3-5 times in the night. Now, he may wake up once and ask for milk but we don't give it to him. Max was just barely diagnosed with aspergers.
Cohen who is 4 and diagnosed with autism, he's done pretty well at sleeping but this definitely helped. One of the videos that I watched talked about how drinking plenty of water will help the brain produce melatonin and that you should be drinking half your body weight in ounces. I try to drink about 100 ounces a day.
Anyways, I thought I would pass this info on. The person who gives this water away, yes gives it away, is really nice and has not pressured us one bit into buying a machine. She is located in North Salt Lake. Check out her site www.drinkfancy.com. I've posted more about this on our site www.lifeandhopewithautism.com
