  1. Has anybody ever tried to do an emotional correction? I took my daughter to a practitioner. She figures out with light touch, what is wrong physically, emotionally, mentally etc. through applied kinesiology, health kinesiology, one brain and other mediums. I did not tell her one word and she figured all out on her own!! All emotional and physical issues.... The reaction to the correction was startling, it was pretty severe. But once it has all passed, I think we are seeing progress. If anybody knows more about this, I would love to hear it......
  2. What are you looking to remove from your water? Is fluoride removal a priority?
  3. I know this from personal experience with my niece. She used to get a strep every spring, go onto antibiotic, and start stuttering...Several years in a row. Her pediatrician mentioned to my sister that there is research linking strep to stuttering. Not sure if this is definitely Pandas, or only strep. However there are soooo many things you can do beside abx for strep. To name a few: Streptococcus Thieves oil on the sole of the foot Blis K12 (an oral probiotic) I am especially leaning to the BlisK12. I know people have had wonderful results with it. Very easy to take and really effective. I have heard that the co NOW is best.
  4. My daughter also had a striated rash, about 5 years prior to her diagnosis of bartonella. Hers looked like someone had written on her back and upper arms with a reddish purplish thick marker. It did not hurt, and disappeared after four weeks. Her pediatrician diagnosed it as pityriasis (sp) which, after checking online years later, it did not match at all. I learnt about these linear rashes on this forum, for which I am thankful, that it led me in the right direction.
  5. I have read up on milk thistle, and although some do say its great for liver, I have seen otherwise. Milk thistle is a liver protector. It protects the liver. Your liver is supposed to protect you from toxins. Now, since your liver will be protected your OCD might get better, but headaches is definitely a liver symptom. So I think milk thistle is not a good idea for you. I have used a product called "liver balance" from the company Pure Body Institute of Ventura, with excellent results. You can also read up on his products on the website www.pbiv.com
  6. This might explain how lyme affects adrenal and thyroid function. http://fightinglyme.weebly.com/adrenal-fatigue.html
  7. I think you should look into Lyme disease and all coinfections. If your family members were all exposed to the same environment, and having the same genetic makeup, it would only make sense that same problem is expressing itself, if somewhat differently. Read the book "Cure Unknown" by Pamela Weintraub . Great source of Lyme information. BTW do you live or vacation in a Lyme endemic area?
  8. Yes, my kids had a hard time falling asleep, and a hard time waking up in the morning. This is typical with late stage lyme (adrenal fatigue). Shallow breathing seem like babesia to me.... The best starting point of antibiotics would be Amoxicillin, and then doxycycline (if he has all his adult teeth). We had good success with Zithromax too. Unfortunately the antibiotic would need to be changed every 30 days, for it to be continue being effective in avoiding Lyme cysts.
  9. You post sounds like a voice from the past. I can relate to many of these symptoms! Even if your troubles are strep related, they could still be stemming from lyme causing an incorrect immune response. I can definitely relate to long showers! and sensitivity to touch (bartonella related) Our first clue was a borderline low WBC.
  10. Bohb, The staring episodes you describe are called absent seizures. In our case they were caused by bartonella. They definitely need medical attention.
  11. Another diagnosis you might want to look into is Lyme disease. It does cause seizures, and alot of the behaviour you describe. And it is helped with antibiotic. Please check this out, as we chased the Pandas route for 5 years until we discovered that our daughter has Lyme/Bartonella.
  12. Just a quick question relating to this topic. My DD is a fair weight, but she many times "forgets to eat; or is just not hungry" If I would put food down in front of her, she would eat it all. I am concerned with her not getting the proper signal to eat. There have been times that she just ate breakfast after 4PM for no good reason. Has anyone had their kid "forget to eat"?
  13. In our experience, anorexia (or very poor appetite) was caused by Low Zinc stores. Once we started zinc supplements, her appetite improved. Zinc is the one mineral that supports the immune system. If it is taxed to the limit, it will cause a drop in appetite. In our case it was Lyme/bartonella. We were using an excellent source of zinc in a cream form recently. PM for more info.
  14. My sister has a child (12) who suffers from hair pulling. He is slowly balding.....My sister claims this is strep related. Does anybody have ideas, or solutions for this problems?
  15. I like the Restore product; I used myself. It definitely gave me more energy to get through the day. I know several people who have used it with similar results. Regarding the (Astridian) Del Scientific cream, my daughter used it for about 3 months. We are very happy with the results. It IS expensive. So if anything else is working.... stick to it. We saw improvement in : executive function, expressive language, and processing speed. I think anxiety also improved, although we are also doing some CBT. The company is recommending to use this product together with Restore; I think it is to get the toxins that were released, out of the body. I don't think it promotes the healing on its own.
