Hi, all.  My DD is upon her 5th birthday and I'm seeking a party or playdate for her.  We may not be able to travel far, but we'll try if we have to.

I just did a search on IAOMT and found a PPT which showed Grandio does have both BPA and xenoestrogens. http://www.google.com/cse?cx=015448055710599057134:rgtls4sbu3i&cof=FORID:0&q=grandio Granted,...

I would really like to have my amalgams removed, but I want to give remineralization a chance before I go any further. Unfortunately, I called the only two bio dentists within a 25 mile radius and...

My daughter is two years old, unvaccinated, and I'm pretty sure she doesn't have ASD. We don't see doctors, but nothing she does strikes me as being out of the ordinary and she proves to be highly...

My point is that if it was along the lines of a 'chuckle under the chin' as you put it, it wouldn't have been followed by 'you're a bad mother.' Would you honestly say something like that as a joke?...

It's highly unlikely that she was trying to fit in when she told her she was a bad mother following the slap. If you're trying to fit in, you wouldn't be insulting. From my point of view, she was...

I already looked it up after posting my response. You have to keep in mind that nothing Trinidad's government has done is based on any kind of logic. They have an unhealthy obsession with following...

Trinidad, a Caribbean island. An entire island of mostly non-vaccinated people must seem scary, but I assure you it wasn't. My cousins' parents sought out their childhood diseases. My mother chose...

heathergirl67, on the issue of vaccination rate, I feel you're misjudging here. I'm not trying to be offensive, so don't take it that way. It's plastered all over numerous news articles that the CDC...

I've been told they don't have to ask about the vitamin K shot because it's 'routine.' I still see it as a violation. Their form specifically said absolutely nothing was to be given without consent....

Well, I think it's up to you to be informed without a doctor's help. A pro-vax doc will say vax just because you're alive and breathing. An anti-vax doc will say don't vax at all. Someone in the...

To be fair, bugs and some small animals get killed on fruit/vegetable farms as well during the various processes. I've even had meat eaters use that point with me to vilify veganism. Of course it...

A study I read recently (from this year in fact) concluded that D2 and D3 are equally effective.

We're still nursing, so I still take my prenatal, but I also take another 6,000 IU of D2 per day.

I don't know that we could find a...
