  1. I have posted this before, but it bears merit to repeat. Sometimes even though the supplements are good, and detox well, some kids cannot handle it. If the body is not getting rid of the released toxins fast enough, you will get serious issues (like what you mentioned before). I will refer to my grandfather, when in the hospital with severe liver disease, and talking a lot of nonsense, the doctors gave him an enema. As soon as his colon cleansed, he was back to normal, mentally. With our kids, we might no know how stressed their digestive systems, and as a result, their livers are. Making sure that they have a bowel movement AT LEAST ONCE A DAY is a must! Some kids might need more. You will see the difference immediately. I know I have. You can use enemas if necessary, but gentle colon cleansing is probably better.
  2. My DD is a pretty OK place now, but this is a new one. She is complaining about ElectroMagnetic Sensitivity. She claims to have a problem using her cell phone, or computers. Even Fax machines. We showed her Wikipedia on this that this an imaginary ailment. Meanwhile she is making a big deal and refusing to have anything to do with computers or cell phones. This is really affecting her life. Does her complaint have any merit? (We are choosing to ignore this saying we have no idea what this is all about)
  3. Desperate for Sleep

    Mountainmom regarding cortisol; they could be elevated at night and normal during the day, causing insomnia. Regarding a daylight lamp, I have used it for help with getting up in the morning. It did help, alot. We have not used it for getting to sleep at night.
  4. Desperate for Sleep

    You might want to check his cortisol levels. If they are elevated at night it could be keeping him awake. How is his energy during the day? If cortisol levels are low in the morning he would be extremely tired then. This problem, linked to the adrenal glands, is remedied with an adrenal support. (Vitamin C, healthy salts etc) Another suggestion that might be worthy to try is using a daylight therapy lamp in the morning to reset circadian rhythms.
  5. reference for Dr. H. F. NYC

    What is the full name of this dr. and what is his/her specialty? I live in NYC as well.
  6. Parenting

    Has anybody ever tried parenting with the Alfred Adler method? I've heard it has helped many people get rid of seriously problematic issues in their kids. I am taking a course in this now, wondering if anybody has any knowledge about this.
  7. OK, 70% ineffective.......:) Mega doses of Vitamin D really works against flu, for protection and severity.
  8. I have heard that the flu shot is only effective 10% this year. Is that enough of a protection to put you at ease, with its possible risks?
  9. Trauma

    What is the likelihood of a childhood trauma creating Pandas like behaviour? Thinking back to the timeline of our onset, I recently had an epiphany, that I watched the Twin Towers burning and falling, with DD in my arms. She was 2.3 yrs old at the time, but I also remember seeing our pediatrician and complaining that this child really changed. Although our PANS diagnosis came much later, I am sure that this is linked. Input??
  10. In the Lyme community it is known that antibiotic are the short "long route"; meaning that although there might be some immediate relief, there is usually a problem with borellia cysts, meaning that the spirochete would hide in a shell and come out again when antibiotics are stopped. There are many different approaches to dealing with this. Either switching antibiotics every 30 days, or taking several at a time. Here in NYC, I have seen several LLMD's switching over to the more natural approach. That would involve herbs and other supplements in trying to get the body to fight the Lyme. This is the longer "short route". It might take longer to see results but they are usually more permanent. I would suggest guidance to get the correct supplements. However, if money is an issue, you might want to try the Buhner protocal for Lyme and Bartonella (you can find a book about this on amazon) or others can chime in with their suggestions as well.
  11. Doxy, Lyme, Babesia, Bartonella

    Doxycycline should not be given to a child whose permanent teeth are not all in (it adversely affects teeth development). If I am not mistaken 9 is the earliest it could be given. For Lyme, amoxicillin is the next best choice; and for young children it is the first choice. Grapefruit seed extract given together with antibiotics would keep the biofilm from forming.
  12. Hi, If you are positive to Bartonella, know that bart in itself can cause symptoms that you are explaining, even if there is no lyme involved. I don't know where you are located, but a LLMD would be the correct choice. Antibiotics alone are not the answer. Lyme/Bart is a difficult disease to test for, and treat.
  13. Was your kid vaccinated for HIB? Vaccine viruses generally are bound to an aluminum adjuvent to keep the attenuated disease in the kids body and the antibody level high. There has been some speculation on this forum that the ALUMINUM is what causes the Pandas in our kids...... If this is the case, I would do a mud bath to detox the aluminum which would cause the bound disease level to drop. It would also take away to protection from the vaccine though.
  14. Several of my kids have had chicken pox. It is a mild disease, and my experience showed that the kids matured and reached new milestones post chicken pox. I would not know if this can trigger PANS; it did not happen to us.
  15. I was wondering if anybody would know, or have any experience with this learning program designed to help with all kinds of processing issues. I have heard people having good success with this (Program is based in Idaho, and is supposed to turn around kids lives) We are dealing with stuff that a neuropsychologist said just to live with.
