A Trend That Cannot Be Ignored

Far too many children have developmental neurological disabilities (autism, cognitive disabilities, bipolar disorder, ADHD, etc.) and chronic health disorders (diabetes, asthma, food allergies, cancer, etc.), and the incidence of most of those problems has increased so much over the last 20-40 years that today, approximately 30% of children in the US suffer from serious mental and/or physical health problems (chronic disorders).   In fact, the chance of having an autistic child in the 1950s was virtually non-existent. According to Autism Speaks, the largest autism advocacy not for profit in the US, as well as the Center for Diseases Control (CDC) the chances are now approximately 1 in 68.   CLICK HERE to learn more.

Our Solution

The Healthy Child Guide – helping parents have healthy children

The Healthy Child Guide contains recommendations for prospective parents from the NHF Scientific Advisory Board designed to increase the likelihood of healthier children free of chronic health problems.

Too many children have chronic health conditions

Children are the most important resource for the future of our society. Far too many children today have developmental neurological disabilities (autism, cognitive disabilities, ADHD, etc.) and serious health problems (diabetes, asthma, depression, food allergies, cancer, etc.).

Many of these health problems are preventable

The Healthy Child Guide contains over 50 scientifically-based recommendations for prospective parents from the NHF Scientific Advisory Board designed to increase the likelihood of healthier children free of chronic health problems.

autism prevalance on the rise

We believe parents can dramatically improve the probability of a safe, full-term pregnancy and a child free of chronic health disorders by improving their nutritional status and reducing their exposure to toxins.

232 chemicals deteected in umbilical cord blood

We live in a sea of 75,000 manmade chemicals, most never tested for their effects on the developing brain of a child. This is a summary of a landmark two-year study commissioned by the Environmental Working Group (www.ewg.org). The researchers found up to 232 toxic chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of 10 babies. At a minimum, parents have a right to know how to avoid chemicals (beginning preconception) that are toxic to the developing brain and nervous system of a child.
