Hi! I'm Chelsea Thiede, MS. I am a Christian, wife, mom, step-mom, runner, foodie, food scientist, and nutritional therapy practitioner. I'm a true believer in "Food is medicine." and want to help others find ways to nourish their families through real food. I am a food-scientist, nutrition therapy practitioner, and training integrative nutritionist. My passion for children’s health comes from my most important job title, mom. I am the founder of the holistic ADHD program, Fed and Focused, and authored the E-book “A Recipe for a Healthy Baby.” I share kid-approved recipes on my blog and youtube channel that help provide nutrient dense food for optimal development. I empathize with parents struggling with kids suffering with ADHD and wants to help parents see their kids succeed. We all want more time for connecting instead of correcting our kids!

Making Alzheimer’s Disease a Distant Memory

Making Alzheimer’s Disease a Distant Memory

In this paper, I will analyze and discuss the current research on Alzheimer’s disease. I personally find any research on brain health fascinating because I work with children to reverse ADHD, OCD, Tourette’s, autism, and sensory issues. I find that the brain can manifest several different symptoms. I see how the same common treatments can reverse main brain disorders. Also, my grandfather died of Alzheimer’s disease. I did not get to know him very well, but I remember seeing him…

My Son Overcome Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) Naturally

I remember watching my son, Noah, standing paralyzed and sobbing at the start of the kids fun run after the starting gun went off and every other kids took off. The sound frightened him so much that I carried him back to the car, skipping my race, as we waited for my husband and step-daughter to finish their mile runs at the Meridian Mile. I felt really helpless and heartbroken that my son was so scared. At something that was…
