    My hubby works in advertising so he's definitely in front of screens. And I know he has to see color at times for his job, but there are options... I'm working on it... But I've been focusing first on me and getting what I need- my Ra Optic glasses, CT pool, etc and then I'll equip the kids before they go back to school and then wear my husband down :) No but really... he has to decide for himself. I can't take that responsibility on my shoulders. My big kids are switching to a Waldorf charter school this Fall so I'm generally really happy about where I'm at and how the kids are doing. Small steps... I will be overhauling their diet over summer too.

    I really do think it will become more common to see blue blocking glasses simply because people who are addicted to screens will try to do everything they can to feel OK about their addiction.

    I think most people have to learn the hard way. I mean, I did. Sure, I did a lot of non-mainstream stuff to approach my health for the last 10 years, but you had told me about Jack and sent me info 3 years ago. I remember listening to a podcast then and reading the Hashi blog! But it was so overwhelming and I was in a really hard place mentally/emotionally for other reasons. Being sick for 4 months and then getting my labs down this year gave me a kick in the butt. No regrets though... gotta keep moving forward! I have faith in our guys- they're smart cookies... they'll come around when the time is right for them. What sucks is that you are held back by the lack of motivation over there. :(

    A mother I know told me that a Waldorf teacher has been advising blue blockers for her students for 5 years running...
    Feel free to post and request help on the forum for overhauling kids diets. I always love culinary challenges.

    Sorry LieselK I mistaken your sister for you. I replied to her I hope your hubby goes too. That was for you, well her too if she is having the same problem. Yes you and your sister are right me first but I know my man he needs up front and personal. I personally have a hard time explaining thimgs. He is head strung a little. Wow bummer for hubby and not able to use blue blockers.

    The school is very receptive to hearing more about bluelight/nnEMF risks. They are just starting up- temp location for 5 years and then they'll find their forever home. On my "to-do" list is to present info to them and set them on the right path. I'm super excited about it!

    We've done so many diet type changes before- my 1st baby was grain free and dairy free with my husband and I for quite a bit when she was bitty. We've waxed and waned with things and I'd say the last few years really took us quite a few steps back. Now I know what to do and most importantly, WHY we're doing it. Do you all follow the Epi-Paleo 100% or does your kid eat blueberries? :D

    It is so hard to explain it all to someone else. I can do bits and pieces lately, but it's not enough. It's always amazing to see people face-to-face and I do hope your man really "gets it" and can embrace it at Vermont! It's getting close!

    So true. Funny you say that because I say things to my man here and therre about what Dr. K says and today he said he will say things to his co workers that I say to him about Dr.Kruse and he told me he needs to understand what Dr. Kruse is saying. He said I need to know so he can rebuddle back. I was so happy to hear him say that. Now to Dr. Kruse when my man gets it he will run with it. If he can meet you it would be very appreciated. He needs to meet up to get a feel of who you are if that makes sense. He is getting to some degree.

    I'm the cook and shopper. My son will have the fruit available to him that is growing on trees near my house. I'm not buying any. It's been shrimp and fatty pork for my boy for quite a while.

    We're eating a pork an tomatillo stew this evening based on this https://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/pork-and-tomatillo-stew

    Is there something inherently wrong with blueberries for kids, or are we just talking in general about them eating fruit year-round?

    It took me awhile to respond because I was searching and pondering. I think it's mostly that blueberries are so acclaimed for their antioxidant benefits and therefore overutilized and eaten in excess year round, however they also do contain some solanaceae so those of use with AI disease, DDD or DJD should avoid them. I plan to eat some when we pick them fresh at a nearby farm, just like I have with some strawberries, but that's it. I'm not buying them out of season anymore for the family either. I'm honestly not sure if this is an area that I should be even more careful with (I have Hashimoto's Dz). I think so much still depends on your environment.

    Im also patiently waiting for wild blue berries, in the meantime for extra polyphenols what about a blueberry or burrberyy extract?
