Denial is a strong emotion… I should know, I use it frequently! When it comes to accepting the fact that de-stressing our lives is critical to our own health, we have all kinds of excuses why we just don’t have the time to exercise, do yoga or practice stress-management techniques. Same is true for a lot of us when it comes to eating healthy. We know we will feel better, look better and have more energy etc, but again we (especially parents of special needs children) are caught up in a vicious cycle of continually taking care of everyone else and putting our own health and nutrition needs on the back burner.
But this habit is beginning to back fire. The level of exhaustion and ill-health that are impacting parents of children with autism and ADD can no longer be denied.
What many of us forget, is the fact that one of greatest gifts we can give our loved ones comes from attending to our own health and well-being.
Your Healing Retreat was designed to not only provide parents with information from four top medical doctors, who are experts in the autism treatment field on ways to improve the health and behavior of children with autism and ADD, but it will also provide parents with strategies for improving their own health by offering an array of methods for recharging their own batteries.
Here’s one mom’s view of Your Healing Retreat to be held the first weekend in June (3rd to the 5th) in a serene, lakeside retreat center and includes lodging in a 100 year old cottage with a fireplace, organic food, yoga, massage, whole food cooking classes, a lakeside wine reception, workshops on creating healthy relationships and much more.
