Children's Health Introduction
When I was four years old, my knees would hurt frequently at night. I couldn’t sleep and sometimes even cried in pain. This seemed only to irritate my parents. In my teenage years, the teeth in the lower half of my mouth grew in crooked; even suffering through braces for two years did not correct the problem. Then, I had to have all of my wisdom teeth surgically removed because they also grew in crooked.
I had other physical problems as well. I would frequently have an upset stomach and I developed poor digestion. My body did not grow properly, and my posture consequently suffered. My vision deteriorated and I had to get glasses, but the glasses were ugly so I tried contact lenses. But the contact lenses burned my eyes so I finally stopped wearing them and had to settle for bad vision. In addition to these ailments, I was excessively shy and afraid to talk with people; I would always try to hide. I was slow to heal as well. I got a sunburn once and developed a rash on my face that has lasted for over twelve years and is now, finally, almost gone. For years, my back would hurt every day for no apparent reason. I saw many doctors and health professionals for my knee problems and skin rashes, but none of them seemed to be able to address the cause of my conditions.
While you may have experienced different symptoms, circumstances and problems while growing up, I share my experience with you because I now know that these conditions are not inherent to the human body. Rather, they are an inherent effect of the modern way in which we live. In the next few chapters, I will demonstrate for you how many of these illnesses and diseases are not natural, but rather are a reaction to the way we live in the modern world. By changing how we live and who we have become, we can prevent and cure modern diseases. By not changing how we live, we will perpetuate modern diseases and as a result our children may suffer.
One last thought here. During my college years, I lacked energy to do anything, and lost most of my will to live because my life was so unfulfilling. I became lazy and despondent. Yet within me was a fire: a “burning for burning,” representing the fire of love, of being alive, of action, of doing the right thing, and of everything that represents that burning spark within. This book is a testament to the fire within each of us. It is the phoenix that rises out of the ashes, in all of its glory.
Activity: Take a moment and look for the fire within you. Do you feel a desire to grow, share, and change? Do you feel a longing for oneness with something filled with love, beauty, wholeness and compassion? Do you feel strongly motivated to do something but don’t know what it is?
Intention: Due to our laziness, and due to false knowledge perpetuated throughout our culture and family systems, we have given our power away to the “authority.” This chapter is dedicated to reclaiming your inner power to create health for yourself and your children.

I've read over 12 books on this topic and this is my number one book to the extent that it's become my bible, in that I've read it over 5 times and my husband has also read it. Ramiel's book really helped us along this journey and I can't recommend this book enough. It's truly is life changing!! If you are going to buy a diet / nutritional / lifestyle book for pre-pregnancy, pregnancy or for children, this book would be my number one choice.
