Pursuit of Research strives to promote good nutrition from foods that provide essential nutrients for it’s therapeutic benefits, with an emphasis on those individuals with neurologically based impairments and conditions. Our primary function is to act as the fundraising entity of the CHERAB Foundation which is working to improve the communication skills, education, and advocacy of the verbally disabled.
When we started this journey, we had thought that NV Original would be a great way for busy parents and professionals to support the metabolic system, to naturally without drugs or stimulants nourish and detox the body through food ingredients, to help those that wish to lose weight or build muscle and at the same time support the Cherab Foundation’s goal for research on nutritional science methods for communication impairments. Since then it’s blossomed into a movement for more research into nutrition to help special needs. Read more on cognition, nutrition research here.
It’s well known that diet does effect cognition and learning, including for special needs. According to a study published in The Lancet journal diet may help ADHD more than drugs. Listen to an NPR Podcast here. But that is just one of a huge number of studies supporting diet therapy for numerous conditions including ADHD, autism, seizures, and learning difficulties, some of them complied by the Feingold Association for the Feingold diet.

In the past 14 years in the Cherab Foundation, in addition to appropriate traditional speech and occupational therapies, there are complimentary therapies we’ve found worth exploring. One of them would be nutritional strategies. As the brain responds to multiple stimuli we’ve had strong positive parental and professional anecdotal feedback from thousands for the use of nutritional strategies added to the diet. While many parents of special needs children already follow healthier diets, such as the Feingold Diet, this started specifically with the addition of a very specific formula of essential fatty acids, mainly provided through fish oils or algae that is high in EPA to DHA (both Omega 3s) with a small amount of GLA (Omega 6 from primrose or borage seed oil). Since the Fall of 2009, this also includes the addition of all the essential amino acids and the majority of other essential nutrients through food ingredients provided by the original formula of Nutriiveda (NV). Both fish oils and NV Original are approved by the Feingold Association for the Feingold Diet. Nutritional strategies are helping in various areas, including academic.
NV is a nickname for a product called Nutriiveda- but since the Fall of 2009, thousands of families have been using the original formula- so it’s sometimes called NV original.
NV original is an all natural food product endorsed by the Chopra Center for Well Being. All ingredients are foods which are well known as healthy and benign, used daily in the east or west. The foods in NV contain as a blend a rich profile of all the essential amino acids and other essential nutrients. All ingredients in NV Original are certified foods that are tested free of gluten, casein, heavy metals, hormones, pesticides or herbicides, stimulants, preservatives, or any genetically modified or synthetic contaminants. Basic Q and A is here.
Lisa Geng from the Cherab Foundation discovered by accident when she added NV Original to her son Tanner’s diet to lose a few pounds; not expecting him to have surges in many areas as reported by her son’s school. Since Fall of 2009, like Tanner Geng, there are thousands of other families who have tried NV Original with various SLPs and MDs reporting the same or similar positive results with around 100% success in the patients they recommend NV Original to. We believe it’s just due to providing the body with good nutrition that is easily digestible, as there is a growing amount of research for nutrition’s effect on cognition. The NV Original is approved by the Feingold Association for the Feingold Diet and is being approved and recommended by various pediatric medical doctors because it’s just healthy food based nutrition. NV Original for about two of the past 3 and a half years had only been available through this website and the Cherab team.
Thank you for helping to “bring a voice” to those in need of awareness!
