Article: Prenatal Toxins Affect Children’s Behavior, IQ and More
Hello and Happy Monday! (I’ll be sending this newsletter on Monday throughout the summer.)
We’ve had over 350 people join our Health Challenge! This week we add prizes for when we reach 500 and more! It’s free to join. Details are below!
We hope you had a good week and are having some summer fun? One of our highlights is to look out the back windows late in the day and see the cows in the grazing field at the end of the block. They don’t graze there often, but when they do it’s usually at sunset. So pretty! They were there just after I sent last week’s article about cows being fed left-over candy in their feed. We walked over and stood at the fence to say hello. Soon a big bunch of them walked right up to us as if to say, “Thanks for sharing what you’re learning —
The more we study and read, the more Bob and I are grateful for a whole-food, plant-based eating plan that keeps us healthy without eating animals.
We’re starting to get reports from tea friends who have given our new Settle Down product to over-active, behavior-challenged kids and grandkids. And it’s HELPING! Truly, why does it seem so many more of our children and grandchildren have attention and learning problems than a generation or two ago?
Today’s article comes from some information that I was told about very early in our experience with the tea about this. Did you know that mothers pass along their own toxins to their little unborn babies? And that these toxins then play havoc with the future behavior and brain development? Keep reading…. and keep knowing that we surely love being able to share with you the fascinating info and product results that come our way! Enjoy!

Settle Down Chats: This week I got an absolutely amazing double report from our dear and darling friend Katy in London, England.
Katy had had a big day helping her mother-in-law and came home quite tired and stressed out. Her Settle Down had just arrived and this seemed like a good time to try it out. She took one capsule and within a few minutes, she got a phone call that was quite stressful as well. Here’s what she says:
I hung up and got busy with other things. Then my husband and I realized a while later that I was incredibly peaceful and focused. No more anger, stress or anxiety! Then we realized the REASON I was so peaceful was because of the Settle Down! There was no way this was a placebo effect because I had TOTALLY FORGOTTEN I’d taken it until we tried to figure out why I was so calm!
Later that night, Katy took her first Settle Down for bed, and actually sent me a picture of the statistics from her sleep apnea monitoring machine. It was the BEST night’s sleep she’d had in many MONTHS!
Needless to say, she is ecstatic.
I’ve heard from a couple of others that it is not helping with SLEEP, (sniff-sniff) but it is helping with stress and anxiety during the day. Which goes to show you again how unique each of us is.
One lovely Grandma says their hyper-active 11-year-old granddaughter is much more enjoyable to be around once she’s had her Settle Down. YAY!
Tea Chats: Also Awesome for Seniors and Kids! Our tea friend Karolyn recently lost her mother and when she e-mailed to cancel her mom’s autoship, she wrote: “Yes, it’s all hard, but you need to know that the tea worked wonders for her where nothing in her entire life ever did before. Wish we had heard about this years ago.
My baby granddaughter now uses it and it has made BMs regular and easy for the first time since her birth. She is two and is finally going every single day, where before she would go up to 5-6 days without a BM.”
Now you know why we’ll never be able to thank Dr. Miller enough!
Prenatal Toxins Affect Children’s Behavior, IQ and More
I am not a health professional, as you know, but I am a dedicated messenger for how important it is to keep our colon and organs clean with the tea, at every age. I heard about this information from a registered nurse shortly after we started sharing the tea.
It really resonated with me and explained why there are SO many more kids with behavior problems, autism, ADD and ADHD than there used to be.
I looked several times for her research to document it, but didn’t find it until I read the book “Tox-Sick”, by Suzanne Somers. (I’ll share more about the book next week.)
This study, started in 2006 and updated in 2014 by the Harvard School of Public health, documents that the increasing toxins in our world do indeed have a correlation to both behavior and performance in school for children and teens. (The link to the entire article is at the bottom.) This was published several places, including Time Magazine. Funding for this study by the Harvard School of Public Health was provided by the National Institutes of Health, National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences.
In 2006, scientists from the Harvard School of Public Health and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai identified five industrial chemicals responsible for causing harm to the brain — lead, methylmercury, polychlorinated biphenyls (found in electric transformers, motors and capacitors), arsenic (found in soil and water as well as in wood preservatives and pesticides) and toluene (used in processing gasoline as well as in paint thinner, fingernail polish and leather tanning).
Exposure to these neurotoxins was associated with changes in neuron development in the fetus as well as among infants, and with lower school performance, delinquent behavior, neurological abnormalities and reduced IQ in school-age children.
Now the same researchers have reviewed the literature and found six additional industrial chemicals that can hamper normal brain development. These are manganese, fluoride, chlorpyrifos, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethan
The remaining chemicals, which are found in solvents and pesticides, have been linked to deficits in social development and increased aggressive behaviors.
The research team acknowledges that there isn’t a causal connection between exposure to any single chemical and behavioral or neurological problems — it’s too challenging to isolate the effects of each chemical to come to such conclusions.
But they say the growing body of research that is finding links between higher levels of these chemicals in expectant mothers’ blood and urine and brain disorders in their children should raise alarms about how damaging these chemicals can be.
The developing brain, in particular, they say, is vulnerable to the effects of these chemicals, and in many cases, the changes they trigger are permanent.
“The consequence of such brain damage is impaired [central nervous system] function that lasts a lifetime and might result in reduced intelligence, as expressed in terms of lost IQ points, or disruption in behavior,” they write in their report, which was published in the journal Lancet Neurology.”

I’m not one for scare tactics or an overload of information that is applicable to only a small part of the general population, but my true feeling is … if the tea removes metals and toxins in an easy simple way, why not? What could it possibly hurt? And what could be more simple?
I wish the resources were available for us to do clinical studies to show how the tea eliminates toxins, but until that day arrives, we’ll just have to satisfy ourselves with knowing how much better we feel and look when we drink it regularly.
We are now so grateful to have something to help kids calm down. What a blessing Settle Down is!
Next week I’ll provide my information on the tea and pregnancy. Of course, the best way to not pass those toxins on is to not have them TO pass on!
Please share it with someone you love, Have a great day and week!
