I am amazed by how Nathan is gaining control of his legs, despite cerebral palsy (inability to fully control his legs due to a brain injury at birth).
BACK TO BASICS
Did you know that creeping and crawling is an important stage which helps baby’s brain to develop?
It is so helpful that going back to creeping and crawling can even help special needs kids. The Brainhighways program helped me understand this. Apparently, creeping helps integrate the “baby brain” allowing the baby/child to move from “fight or flight” mode to relax and ready for social interaction mode. Crawling helps develop the mid-brain, helping the child better filter sensory inputs, thus, respond better when dealing with people.
RESULTS OF CREEPING AND CRAWLING, SO FAR
A few years back, we started Brainhighways for our twins with special needs, Nathan and Amor. We saw initial gains and reason to keep going. For how long? Based on Brainhighways testimonies, it will take 100 to 300 hours of creeping and crawling to see results.
Unfortunately, we have not been as consistent as I initially desired. We haven’t even reached our 100th hour of creeping and crawling yet. Already, I know it will take so much more than 300 hours, especially for Nathan to actually learn to creep properly and thus see the gains that other kids experience.
Nathan’s legs used to “dangle” behind him as he attempted to creep. Creeping is supposed to look like military creeping with one arm working in tandem with the opposite leg to propel the body forward. Because of his cerebral palsy, Nathan didn’t seem capable of creeping and crawling properly regardless of how many hundred hours we were to try.
It is so easy to give up on interventions especially when I recall what doctors or experts have told me about cerebral palsy “nothing can be done about it” or even that “Nathan may never walk”.
Fast forward a couple of years…we try a new intervention… Redox singling molecules (brand name ASEA). I love the simplicity, yet profound impact, of this new category-making intervention. It is not a drug, it is not a supplement. Its starting ingredients are simply purified water and salt. These are electronically processed and stabilised to hold reduction and oxidation molecules. These molecules allow us to have the plus (+) and minus (-) energy that our cells need to communicate with each other. Thus our cells get to work more effectively. Younger children inherently have redox signaling molecules at higher levels than their adult counterparts. This manifests in their fast ability to heal. As we age, our bodies produce less, thus our ability to heal is slower. People with chronic illness or who are immunocompromised also have lower levels of redox signaling molecules. So ASEA can benefit these folks. We have started taking ASEA redox singling molecules, seeing that it has benefited other kids with autism and similar issues.
I noticed that Nathan gained better control and coordination of his legs. I was excited to revisit Brainhighways and start creeping and crawling again. Despite a long period of not creeping, Nathan…I dare say “instantly”…gained control of his legs. Watch the video.
Furthermore, when doing a “lizard pattern” exercise, Nathan used to need 100% assistance. After ASEA, it’s amazing today that he can independently to lizards on his own! It’s exciting! I feel that we have advanced so much and have gotten a “cheat” push to the middle of the marathon instead of always being at the beginning. A cheat push that every person with a disability certainly deserves! There’s newfound excitement to keep creeping, crawling and keep developing brain and muscle. I’m thankful that the Lord keeps opening doors for us. When all the experts have told us that nothing can be done about cerebral palsy, He keeps telling me to TRUST IN HIM!
