GRACE + PARKER: OUR STORY
I’m blessed to be the mother of two precious girls, Grace and Parker. At the age of 2, my daughter Grace was diagnosed with alopecia, an autoimmune condition that causes hair loss. By the time she was 3, her scalp was completely bald. Traditional allopathic doctors told us there was nothing they could do to help her and that she would live with the condition for the rest of her life.
After much research, education, and intuitive blood testing through great functional medicine doctors, we discovered that Grace's body was burdened with heavy metals and chemicals. Grace had been exposed to foreign substances through vaccinations and because she was born prematurely, Grace's immune system was already weak and the vaccinations sent her body over the threshold of toxic overload that it could bear. With such an immature and weak immune system, I started paying attention to everything Grace was eating and putting on her skin to avoid exacerbating the problem. This is where my quest began.
I was shocked when I actually started reading product ingredients in "children's" shampoos and sunscreens - Propylene Glycol, Sodium Laurel/Laureth Sulfate, Formaldehyde, Synthetic Fragrances, Synthetic Colors. I became discouraged and skeptical as to what products I could truly trust.
Just because a product claims to be "natural," a term that most of us trust, can be misleading. The word natural does not always mean healthy or good for you. For example, petroleum is considered natural but it is not healthy to ingest. Since those days, I have become an ingredient expert. I’ve made it a practice to read every single ingredient in a product before I try it and then go a step further to find out where those ingredients are sourced from. I’ve devoted so much time and energy doing this kind of research, now an intentional habit and a constant job that will never end, but is worth every minute of effort.
