More about Fish Oil

I just start Alexandra on Fish oil today . I was trying some new seizures and supplements and was observing her positives and negative reactions to them. In my article about Fish Oil I mention at the end that I had chosen to use a different fish oil then the one used in the Italian study. I am not sure everyone read the last sentence of my post , so I am posting again on the topic. The oil I have decided to use is  

 In the meanwhile
Did my own research about Fish Oil Omega -3 and found
Ian was very helpful and concern with the Rett girls. His free guide is very informative on how to select a pure fish oil and he had the kindness to give me the link of what he think is the best product for the best price. Please follow link:

Please copy and paste link to see page.  I am giving the recommended amount of two gel caps a day. Alexandra can swallow them easily I give it to her in her yogurt mix or ice cream. One in the morning and One in the evening.

ABM in Seattle

We are back from Seattle just digesting the time and sessions we shared with Naomi Swanson ABM practitioner in Bellevue , WA. 
It is difficult to say and explain how it was we are still in feeling the moments.   What I can say for sure , is that Alexandra was excited and very much in  attention mode with her sessions. It is true that we have to call for attention, giving all of our awareness and presence when sharing with special children or really,.. anyone, makes a huge difference on our learning/ listening abilities.

 *  Alexandra worked on understanding , using  and playing with her hands. 
 *  She play pushing Naomi with long arms and strong back.
 *  Her neck arched back and stretched down   .
 *  She gave a hug to her mommy rapping both arms around her neck when her mom was sitting her back in wheelchair....she laugh!
 *  Alex play pushing herself and feeling her legs and feet during a picnic time near the water, sitting at a bench & table. 

 *  Kept her hands more often down, and put them down when ask to, to be fed or  to drink water. 
 *  Touch her knee with hand when laying in bed this morning.
 *  Her back, her body seems better organized, stronger, she grew and took some weight.  

 The four days were for her, two sessions a day , morning and afternoon for a hour each. We also visited The Chihuly Garden of Glass in Seattle, eat out, slept early, stopped by the Zoo where a peacock, bird of transformation open his tail affront Alexandra, and she was very much looking at him smiling.  In this picture Alexandra is smiling of her most beautiful smile for Carver who is helping her swing.
