Vitamins & Special Needs Children
The usual challenges of parenting are compounded for parents of children with special needs. Everything from learning about the disability to paying for treatments and interventions not covered by health insurance can seem like a major obstacle.
But this is a role that only you can fill. You are a superhero. You may not fight bad guys or leap from building to building but you do manage situations that a regular parent would think are impossible!
In this section of this article we will dive into some of the problems you are currently facing and will tell you about the solutions available to you in the marketplace.
The burden of stress when parenting children with special needs
Research published in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders found that mothers of special needs kids had levels of stress hormones comparable to soldiers in combat.
As crazy as that sounds you can probably believe it.
Things like getting to the many appointments with doctors, therapists and school personnel and advocating for the appropriate school accommodations can drive a parent nuts.
Combine that with the constant fear and worry about your child’s future and whether you are doing the right things to help them and you have a recipe for stress disaster.
Even though your time and resources for self-care are significantly less than the average parent, your need for refueling is also greater.
It is vital that you take care of yourself and take the time to attend to your own needs.
To be sustained through the marathon of caring for a child with special needs you must pay attention to how you personally are doing, mentally and physically, as often as possible.
There is an abundance of resources online and in your local area of (healthy) ways to relax and regain peace of mind.
Meditation is a big one that is super easy but delivers huge results. There are apps you can download to your phone to help guide you through the process if you have never mediated before!
Dealing with everyday feelings of guilt
The emotional impact on a parent with a special needs child is enormous.
One of the negative emotions you are likely to be dealing with is guilt. Don't be ashamed of that.
What you are dealing with is tough and you have to sacrifice a ton.
Many parents feel guilty over the limits of their ability to protect the child, the loss of attention toward their spouse or other family members, and their jealousy and resentment of those with “normal” children.
Don’t be too hard on yourself when it comes to this. Everyone in your situation goes through it.
Financial issues at home
Staying on top of finances is hard enough for the average household in america. When it comes to a family with a special needs child it becomes even harder.
What will typically happen is one parent, usually the mother, will sacrifice her career to attend to the child’s needs. This results in a loss of income for the family and can cause added stress.
The important thing to remember in this situation is that there are many many families around the country who are in your exact situation. Lean on them for support. Join online communities, read blogs, or post in facebook groups to get advice on how other families were able to successfully make it through the tough times.
It is okay to be vulnerable and open. Other parents who can relate have no problem sharing their experience and love to give tips on what helped them through the tough times!
How we can helpIf you are dealing with any or all of these struggles we want you to know we understand what you’re going through and want to help make your life easier.
The most effective way we’ve been able to do that is by helping your child.
What we have found through our research and what the industry as a whole has come to a consensus on is that taking a daily dose of multivitamin can greatly improve a child with special needs quality of life.
Typically, children on the spectrum do not absorb nutrients well because their digestive systems are not operating at 100%. Often, they eat a very limited list of foods.
This causes them to miss out on the proper balance of nutrients our body so desperately depends on.
Taking a daily dose of a multivitamin can restore that balance and give your child the nutrients they were missing out on all this time.
Parents and teachers report autistic children “waking up” or becoming less brain-fogged when they start taking a well-absorbed daily dose of vitamins.
What we actually did was combine the most important set of vitamins into a supplement designed for kids.
Our multivitamin is taken in spray form and for very good reason.
Not only is it difficult to get a child with special needs to take pills or even chewable vitamins, studies show taking vitamins this way isn’t the most optimal for absorption.
Being that it’s liquid, our spray supplements have a 95-98% absorption rate versus the capsule’s 15%-20% absorption rate. Liquid nutrition also requires less energy to digest, because your body does not need to break it down.
If you have tried supplements or multivitamins in the past and lacked success, the delivery method is most likely a huge cause to that.
Our customers have seen tremendous benefit from giving their children the nutrients they were missing out on most of their life.
