Magic Juice and a CP Connection

Nina has been drinking magic juice. Okay, it is really a mineral supplement, but one mom called it the magic juice, and I guess we have seen some great progress with it.

Don;t be surprised if some of the people linking-up are also sharing about this magic juice. And no, we don't really think it is magic, but we are seeing that there are some real deficiencies in our children with CP and this is helping in many areas of development.

About two months ago a fellow mom brought up the Preemie Growth Project. She got her daughter involved in the research and she began to see some real changes. The changes were significant enough that many of us took notice and we began to research what this project was all about. The project/research is based on a mineral supplement. Specifically plant derived colloidal minerals. The science behind it is that premature babies lack the mineral foundations to brain and muscles necessary for optimal development. By providing these minerals, the brain and muscles are able to finally function at a more typical level. For kids with cerebral palsy, this can be huge.

If you want to know more, check out the website, and like I said, there are probably some blogs linked up here talking about this.

Also, here is a pretty good article about plant derived colloidal minerals.

We are taking a very conservative approach to the supplement and we are introducing this very slowly with Nina. We are only to half the recommended dose and we are seeing changes. Nina is balancing so much better, and she is bending at the waist to touch the floor and back up again. In only a couple of weeks, we have seen change, including some improvement with her school work.

Here is a video of Nina today, check out her balance just 11 days into the supplement and only half the recommended dose.

  1. So cool! Can't wait to get Malachi on some "magic juice"! ;)

  2. I just watched the video. WOW! Nina's doing really good. and LOL, Ellen: "You're forgetting to shake it." LOL such a mom! Sounds like something I would say!

  3. Astounding. What really strikes me is the balance. Wow!

  4. Her balance is really good! I'm so happy for her. And...was she doing the chicken dance there for a bit? Sooooo cute! :)

  5. Wow! Go, Nina! Auntie Marcia is sooooo proud of you!

    I have been thinking about this post a lot recently and I was wondering how things were going with Nina and her "magic juice". My son's CP is pretty involved and I wondered if you think this is something I should try. Have you experienced any negatives, or any reasons why you might hesitate to recommend it? Or are you feeling pretty good about it? I'd love to hear your thoughts! Thanks!!

    1. We have hit a plateau with it. We are not seeing the great improvement we saw at the beginning. Maybe the change is gradual and at this point I don't know if it is because of the supplement or simply because she is developing like we would expect her to. So I do think it was good for her, it gave her a boost, and we are thankful for the changes. I am glad we did it. Nonetheless, we have been doing it for a few months now and we will be taking a break and see what happens when we do.

      Well, that sounds positive. I can see where it might plateau, but just the initial boost is enough to make me want to try it. I've looked at the liquid colloidal minerals from other perspectives, meaning not just how it can help development, and it seems to be a legitimate supplement anyway. So I'm thinking it can't hurt to try and if I don't see anything in the first few months, well, at least I tried! Thank you for your honest feedback! I always like to get firsthand knowledge from someone who will be honest and not the paid goons who profess how awesome a product is!! I do this with just about everything I try. So thank you again! I'll keep you posted on any changes I see with Jaime! :-)
