    Growing A Parent Support Group

    in Parents

    Jan Rao, Ex. Dir. of Willows In the Wind and Carrrie Weatherhead, Administrator for SavingTeens joined Lon Feb. 20, 2015 to explain the Parent Support program they are jointly developing.  Willows In the Wind has been offering parent support services for several years, and were asked by SavingTeens to help them develop a mentoring program for those parents looking for possible scholarship and partnership help for those children needing a therapeutic boarding school or wilderness therapy school or program.  The purpose of parent support groups or programs is to have a place where parents can go for help when they are desperate and need help and something more intensive for their children.  The system being developed by this collaboration is to support parents looking for help from SavingTeens and is a mentor based program where parents are matched with other parents who have gone through this heart wrenching search process of getting their children help.

    FDN Support Talk Radio

    in Health

    Intro: Reed discussing the FDN philosophy/paradigm and what sets us apart from other


    traditional methods.


    4:30 Talk about upcomoing new FDN material and video tutorials


    6:15 – 14:30  Reed continues to discuss trouble-shooting & doubling down on DRESS; 


    Brandon announces graduates


    15:00 – Question: How do you go about weaning off PPI’s with supplements to increase stomach acid? 


    (already ruled out Hpylori). 


    Reed: Reed discusses weaning clients off of PPIs and why stomach acid is so important to our health and 


    vitality. 


    29:00 – Live Question: Can Reed speak to hyper-parathyroidism 


    Reed: discusses parathyroid function and its role on calcium in the blood/bones.  Speaks to how the 


    process of FDN reduces metabolic chaos regardless of the  client’s “diagnosis”. 


    47:30 – Question: I have a client with a total cortisol of 9.5 for the whole day. I mentioned that he might want to 


    get tested for Addison’s since that was what the FDN program suggests. He doesn’t seem to have the other typical symptoms of Addison’s other than the low cortisol. Reed shares that he has seen Addison’s maybe twice in the last 15 years – it is very rare. 


    54:30 – Question from caller. How does the cyclical drop of progesterone before menses set off the 


    inflammatory cascade that triggers migraines.  


    Reed: Does it matter? The solution is to balance the contributors to MC and work non-specifically w/ FDN protocols.
