I am wanting to plan an intensive nutrition plan for my daughter and would like some input from you lovely knowledgeable ladies! :D
I am concerned about my 5yo's teeth, her teeth are crowded. They don't seem to be spreading out as she grows. Both my boys teeth have nice spaces between them (7yo and 2yo). Since she was born just 2 years after my oldest, I think my nutritional stores just weren't built up enough yet. I suffered from adrenal fatigue after she was born for awhile. We have been eating a mostly TF diet since my oldest was a few months old. She has not had CLO/BO as early or as consistently as her older brother. Though probably about the same as her younger brother, but then there was an extra year (and some further dietary changes) before he was born. She's also the pickiest eater and the one needing the most sleep. On the other hand she is healthy, strong and sturdy, very heavy for her size, with no cavities. Anyway, at this point it seems obvious to me that she needs something EXTRA. So, I'm trying to come up with a plan for her.
Some other considerations: money is tight, and I'm homeschooling and just don't have a lot of extra time. I know nobody has extra time or money, right? :D I've wondered whether alternating intense nutrition days with lighter days would help me deal with the time factor and keep from burning out or falling off the wagon. Every other week? Every other month? Every other day?
Here's what I've come up with so far:
* FCLO - How much? right now she takes 3/4 tsp, when she takes it all (cuz of me, not her. she likes it).
* homemade ghee - again how much? 1/2 tsp every time she takes CLO? 3/4 tsp?
* raw parmesan - read recently that this is a great source of vitamin K, maybe a tbsp a day?
* concentrace - i have some, do you think supplementing with this would help? she is the least likely of my kids to eat soup/broth
* bioplasma - again, i have some already. 2? years ago i bought all the individual cell salts for teeth health and gave them to her without really seeing any difference. though that may be because i wasn't consistent enough with it. but it was a lot of work. so i have some bioplasma, that would be much simpler to give her just one.
* liver - she is willing to swallow my frozen liver *pills* though not a lot at a sitting. what if i gave her a smallish amount at every meal?
* fermented foods - fallen off the wagon here lately. killed my kefir grains. my kombucha molded. got tired of watery goat milk yogurt (and don't tell me to strain it, it already costs me $14 per gallon, i can't afford to drain it. though i could trial 24hr yogurt with grassfed organic pastuerized cow milk, if the kids could handle it that would cut the cost in half). Anyway, I need to get us eating more of these again. We've been taking New Chapter probiotics periodically, but it would be much cheaper to eat fermented foods obviously.
