All of us are affected, but it is the younger generation who are impacted the most. The children of today face the prospect of shorter lives than their parents’! Accumulating generations of toxicity, nowadays, children struggle with a myriad of chronic diseases and conditions. However, the sparkling silver lining is that lots of these conditions can actually be reversed! Of this, Autism is the prime example! Let’s see precisely how ailments such as Autism, ADHD and even depression can become a thing of the past while we pave the road to a happy and healthy future!
