Jennifer, Mom of Zac, Makes Healing "Juice"

The healing "apple juice" that Jennifer makes for her son Zac includes fresh juice, important fats for brain function and specially formulated supplements. The nutrient rich drink has been a part of the larger treatment protocol Jennifer has implemented to help her son get better and she has seen great results. Combining conventional and mainstream approaches with love, acceptance, determination and COCONUT OIL have also been a huge factor in her son becoming a more verbal, connected and well child.

Janine Francolini, Founder of Flawless Foundation, shot this video to share with other parents Jennifer's wisdom. Flawless Foundation's mission is to bring holistic healing to children with behavioral challenges. Their tagline is "seeing the perfection in every child"--something Jennifer does every day without fail. (DISCLAIMER: some inappropriate or "expressive" language is used in the last minute of video in case your kids are nearby you might want to turn on the TV for them! I am personally THRILLED that Zac is expressing himself.)

Jennifer Ford has been practicing and studying yoga since 1995. For the past 15 years, she has supplemented her yogic studies through attending and participating in numerous yoga-related workshops and seminars. She also attends national and local conferences and seminars that focus on Autism Spectrum Disorders and other developmental disabilities.

Jennifer holds a Masters Degree in Education from The New School for Social Research and for many years taught in the New York City Public School system, working with more and more "at-risk" students as the years went by through Bent on Learning. It was her experimentation with yoga in the classroom that convinced her that yoga was a powerful, positive tool for young people, especially those with learning disabilities. She fully believes that yoga’s physical and philosophical framework is a natural compliment to today’s conventional education system. For a dozen years she has been coordinating school yoga programs combining her life passions: kids, yoga…and FUN!

If Jennifer is not cooking for her kids or running her yoga program Bent on Learning you can find her paddleboarding with Paddle Diva. Go HERE for information about Workout Wednesdays and Fitness Fridays with Paddle Diva in the Hamptons.

Absolutely fabulous. Jennifer is an amazing and dedicated mom and she is so right that it is a combination of traditional and alternative healing that moves so many kids forward - and that unconditional love because they are truly amazing children!
