Supplements for immune support and speech delays. THIS IS NOT A SPONSORED POST. I JUST WANT TO SHARE IT WITH YOU BECAUSE IT WORKED FOR US.
I wanted to share this supplement that I SWEAR BY is Balanced Essential for our kids.
Our neurologist (our son’s neurologist) is known for being the best in the area – he helps children will all sorts of neurologic issues. He has over a year waiting list and is currently not even taking new patients, but we happened to get in four years ago when he had an opening.
He has helped us through a LOT of issues that we were dealing with with our son. He refereed us to surgeons that have been wonderful, therapists that have made a world of difference, and he even answers my e-mails when I have a quick question!
So, when our son was going down-hill, due to his poor nutrition (he could not tolerate any food and his body literally resisted it- see that story here), started having sensory issues and had a speech delay, he told us to try this vitamin supplement: Balanced Essentials.
He said that lack of nutrition and vitamins can cause all of those things.
He also told me NOT to use the store-bought chewable vitamins that everyone gets because many of them don’t get absorbed properly and they contain dyes & additives, which is not good for our children’s growing bodies and brains. I did find a chewable alternative that fit the criteria of what we needed in a vitamin (because the Balanced Essentials tastes like the vitamins they took as infants)
He also told us to start juicing, too, which we try to do daily. We bought this juicer… (because it was pretty inexpensive & does a great job)
We buy the day-old fruit at Harris Teeter or produce at Aldis, bring it home & make juice. Juicing can get expensive, but it is a quick way to get spinach and other fruits and vegetables into our kids. (Add apples and it will make everything taste good!)
Back to Balanced Essentials: it has everything that kids would be getting IF they eat a very balanced diet. (It is great for grown-ups, too)
This Balanced Essesntials has:
• 94 Vital Nutrients
• 12 Natural Vitamins
• 17 Amino Acids
• Omega 3,6,9
• 62 Major & Trace Minerals
• 10 Phytonutrient Rich Plants
I give it to all of our kids now (he told us to do 1 ounce a day per child, but please follow the directions on the bottle & check with your pediatrian first). We saw immediate results from this vitamin. Our son’s speech picked up so quickly that we were amazed- he was going to get speech therapy & after this he didn’t need it anymore. Really! (Again, his body rejected EVERY food and drink for years.
It is amazing that his body could even sustain itself). His muscles became less tense (he has something called Hypertonia- Increased muscle tone). It has been fantastic for him and for all of our kids.
It gives me a peace of mind when they only eat one bite of vegetables at dinner, instead of all of it (or 1 pea- if you are our two-year old!)
I tell everyone about it! If your child is picky or if you notice any sort of delay, this worked wonders and I order it (I currently have two bottles in our fridge- so that we don’t run out!)
I keep two in my refrigerator because I do not want to run out! It was expensive to get two bottles at once but you get MUCH more for your money because it is a big bottle and lasts for months. The kids line up to take it – our two year old calls it his “Spidermans” (Too hard to say Vitamins, I guess! haha!)
Here is our two year old modeling them for you- 🙂
I hope that this post helped you! Stay HEALTHY!! 🙂
