New Changes

I keep meaning to write about the normal, everyday products that my son has been using.  About 6 months ago I started using regular laundry detergent, All Free & Clear.  He had been using a plant based powder for a number of years while we tried to figure out what was causing all his skin irritation.  He's also gone back to using some regular Ivory soap, no more specialty emu oil bars.  Most recently he's switched to Colgate toothpaste, even though I know that Tom's is better for him he prefers the minty taste of Colgate.  Those three changes alone are big money savers.

There are some things that we'll never switch away from as our new knowledge has proved too valuable.  We'll always shop for better organic meats & other foods when possible, we'll stay away from canned good and go with fresh or frozen (cans are lined with BPA unless you pay extra for Eden brand), we'll stick to using white vinegar for cleaning and as a substitute for laundry detergent (along with a few drops of eucalyptus oil), I'll always make my own chicken broths from organic chickens, we'll stay away from soy and other genetically engineered food, and we'll continue to supplement with probiotics, fish oil, and vitamin D.  Oh yeah, there will never be another vaccine to enter my son's body (per waiver of multiple MDs.)
