Hemp Seed Oil is fantastic! I swear by the stuff 100%, it is that good. Unlike fish oil, hemp seed oil has a lovely nutty taste, yet it contains no nuts. It does have a unique smell but it is certainly not unpleasant. I have been giving hemp seed oil to my eldest (3.5yrs, autistic) for nearly 2 months now – the difference is amazing! DS1 has over 150 words and it is increasing daily. My youngest has been on it for 3 days and already we are seeing a difference. DS2 sounds alot like your DD – there is something just not right. Last night DS2 gave DP the biggest hug ever – normally he kicks, screams and bites DP, so we were really surprised and over the moon about it wub.gif He also said “mummy” for the first time in a long time (DS2 took a massive leap backwards with his speech development and has ‘spoken’ for over 6 months).
Here is some information that I have on Hemp Seed Oil:
Hemp Seed Oil contains:
Omega 3 19%
Omega 6 57%
Omega 9 12%
Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, D and E
Hemp seeds are one of the rare sources of gamma linoleic acid (GLA), a substance also found in mothers’ milk.
Hemp seed oil is the most highly nutritious EFA (essential fatty acid) oil available.
Hemp seed oil has been historically and scientifically proven as an all round healing agent for sensitive and damaged skin, such as Eczema, Psoriasis, Lupus, burns, rashes, and other dry, itchy, irritable skin conditions.
Hemp seed oil strengthens the immune system. It inhibits tumour growth, kills bacteria and heals wounds.
The type of hemp seed oil that I have been giving my boys is 100% Pure Cold Pressed Hemp Seed Oil.
If you need any more information, please, just let me know.
Wishing you all the best,
PS. Oh, almost forgot to add: DS1 used to have massive problems pooing, so bad that he used to have to have 15 – 20ml of lactulose daily just to get a bowel movement. Well, he hasn’t had to have it for over 1.5mths and can poo with ease and, most importantly, he isn’t scared of pooing anymore. Sorry if it is TMI but I just thought I should add that as some toddlers who have developmental delays are pretty scared of bodily functions.
