Documenting Hope Project

A Unique Approach to Healing

The Documenting Hope Project Grassroots Initiative Tackles New Childhood Epidemics by Beth Lambert One of the greatest paradoxes of our times is that the most affluent, resourced and medically advanced societies in the world also have the highest rates of chronic childhood illness. Obesity and diabetes, autism and neurodevelopmental delays, and digestive and allergic diseases were rare just a generation ago. Today those illnesses are impacting our children in epidemic numbers, and the social, economic and human costs are staggering. Our children are the “canaries in the coal mine” of national health. For their sakes, we must take action now….

Curious How Our “Evening of Inspiration” Went?

It was fabulous!  The Harmonie Club is a beautiful venue, and it was a fantastic setting for our “Evening of Inspiration”, which benefited the making of our Canary Kids Film Project, in which we will be taking 7 children with a known diagnosis of autism, ADHD, allergies and asthma and providing free healing and recovery services while we film them for 18 months. You can check out pictures of the event here and here. We honored Ken Cook of the Environmental Working Group, Deirdre Imus and Harvard pediatric neurologist Dr. Martha Herbert, author of “The Autism Revolution”, for their work…

Beth Lambert on Imus in the Morning!

It all started with Epidemic Answers honoring Dierdre Imus for her work in protecting children’s health at our “Evening of Inspiration” benefit for the Documenting Hope Project on September 27, 2013. Deirdre brought her husband, Don, and their son, Wyatt.

Apparently, that all changed when he attended the event and saw Beth Lambert, our Executive Director, speak about our Documenting Hope Project, in which we’ll be documenting the potential…

EWG published a landmark study in 2005 called, “Body Burden:  The Pollution in Newborns“, which showed an average of over 200 different toxic chemicals in the cord bloods of newborns, meaning these toxins could have only come from the mother.  Unfortunately, many people, including most pediatricians are not aware of this study, even this many years later. If you haven’t checked…
