Court victory against FDA for free speech

US Court rules in favour of free speech on health claims http://www.anh-europe.org/news/anh-press-release-court-victory-against-fda-for-free-speech

Hi. My name is Lillian Reekie.

Because of our family’s own struggle with a child diagnosed with a variety of conditions like childhood depression, ADHD and ODD I am now very passionate about sharing our journey with others.

I have written 3 books and conducted hundreds of seminars over the years to help educate families on how to deal with challenging children holistically rather than the “drug” approach which was recommended to us and is now SO common.

I have recently set up a support system for all parents, carers and teachers, especially those with challenging children.

I am utilising our computer and internet technology so I can support more families, not just those that could make it to our live seminars.

I have put into place an interactive blog http://lillian-supportforchallengingchildren.blogspot.com with articles to help educate and support families.
