At Home With Sensitive People

Welcome to my blog!

Welcome to my blog!

Have you ever been on sensory overload with loud music, flashing lights from the TV, incessant chatter, honking horns, overpowering cleaning solutions? With so much discussion about self-discovery  and making choices that take us closer to our goals, we might feel our decisions only involve the spiritual and emotional, omitting the importance of our physical surroundings at home and work. I read an interesting article aimed at parents who want to improve their sensitive child’s home environment. It got me thinking. Sensitive children grow up to be sensitive adults.

Idelle Brand, DDS. wrote an article, “7 Ways To Help Sensitive Children Flourish”  in the September/ October 2015 issue of Wisdom magazine.

Dr. Brand tells us, “…as we continue to bring modern technology and pollutants into our home, we continue to expose our children to invisible toxins affecting their physical, mental and emotional health….children who have high sensitivities and enriched sensory abilities are often acutely affected by things like light, noise, household chemicals, toxins in food and even electromagnetic frequencies…their developing brains and bodies may react to a less-than-ideal home environment with stomach upset, insomnia, breathing difficulties, mood changes, learning difficulties, and other symptoms.”

Hmmm, food for thought. What to do?  Read on.

Dr. Brand makes the following suggestions:                                                                                        1. Remove All Electronics From The Bedroom– eliminates (EMF) electromagnetic output                                                                                                                                                            2. Stop Using The Microwave – eliminates molecular distortion of the food                                3. Invest In A Flat Screen Monitor For The Computer – eliminates high levels of  radiation from the old box-shaped cathode ray tube computers                                                                4. Put EMF Protectors On All Electronics- also for cell and cordless phones, buy online                                                                                                                                                           5.  Filter Your Water– use a high quality water filtration system  to counteract chemical additives used to kill microbes in the municipal water                                                                  6. Invest In An Air Purifier- eliminates mold spores, dust, cigarette smoke, pet dander, hydrocarbon toxins                                                                                                                                   7. Connect With Nature Daily– at least 20 minutes a day outdoors to release sensory overload-walk, run, play, observe

These suggestions can work for adults as well as children. Please let me know how you do. I’d love to hear from you.
