Read from the Book

Our first book, Dyslexic AND UN-Stoppable: How Dyslexia Helps Us Create the Life of Our Dreams and How YOU Can Do It Too!, gave parents and teachers concrete examples of tools and strategies that helped our son overcome difficulties with writing, reading, math, and speech, and to help parents get the services they need for their children to succeed in the public schools.Our goal for this second book in the Dyslexic and UN-Stoppable series is to complement the first book. Overcoming dyslexia is a continual journey, so we recommend reading our first book in conjunction with this book to get maximum benefits and results.In this book, we will focus mainly on nutritional facts, healthy recipes, and how to identify the healthy ingredients that are beneficial for improving your odds of overcoming dyslexia, as well as the non-healthy ingredients to avoid. We've adapted recipes we like to eat to provide our son who is dyslexic with the best nutrients to keep his brain functioning at its best. These recipes are designed for the whole family to enjoy. Like most people, we are a busy, on-the-go family, and time is of the essence. We need to make meals that we all enjoy and benefit from, because in the end, we all need and want a healthy brain, dyslexic or otherwise. After years of research, we now realize that using as many pure and simple ingredients as possible is the key to getting maximum benefit from our foods.We can only speak from our own experience, but we've noticed that by removing as many of certain ingredients from FéZander's diet as possible, he has made great improvements in his ability to concentrate and focus. On a side note: I (Lucie/Mom) also noticed an improvement in my health as an adult living with dyslexia when I changed my eating habits. The better I eat, the better I cope with life and work-related stresses, which in return means I'm better able to concentrate and deal with problems as they arise. When possible, we eat foods that contain no artificial dyes, no preservatives, no chemicals, no added salt, no aluminum, no antibiotics, and no growth hormones, and that are not genetically modified (non-GMO). Some examples of foods we like to use are organic foods, wild caught fish, free-range eggs, and raw veggies and fruits. Basically we use foods in their purest and simplest form to preserve their nutrients.As we said above, we can only speak from our own experience. Of course, we wouldn't expect that what we are doing to help our son will automatically help all other children overcome dyslexia. We are all unique individuals with different degrees of difficulties, but our hope is that we can help even a little. One of our mentors always starts his courses and camps by stating something like, "Don't believe a word I say; this is my experience only. This is what works for me, and it doesn't mean it will work for you." When we first heard him say that, we thought, What? What does that mean? What is he trying to tell us? Today, we get it. Our mentor wants to help as many people as he can, but he also realizes that it's simply impossible to help everyone all the time. We are all at different places and on different paths in our lives. Some will benefit from our work and some won't, and we're okay with that. Some will hear similar information from someone else and understand it more clearly from them. In the end, as long as we do our best, that's all that matters.
