  1. Hi there everyone, long time no talk!!! Hoyt has been doing super well of late and only had issues during pine blooming time. But Fifth disease is rampant at his school and now both he and I have it! It is supposed to be very mild and with me it is but oh my gosh he's really suffering. He's had a temperature of 103 now since Saturday night, swollen glands, sore throat, red itchy eyes and he's sore all over - he even spiked at 104 for a short time but has gone back to 103 and holding. Checked for Strep - no, thank goodness. I know he has an overactive immune system - is it perhaps ramping
  2. Hello, I feel terrible that the Rescue Remedy didn't work - and worse had such ill effects! As I said we ALL take it (now even my husband) and find it so helpful. It most definitely sounds like an allergic reaction. It works so quickly that I hope it got out of her system as quickly. Good luck, Giselle
  3. Hi again! Yes, we are so thrilled!!! Kim, yes it was challenged/provoked. All his metals tests have been, with DMSA - is that a bad thing? I hope not, regardless, this test shows amazing results compared to the last ones we did (3 years ago, 2 years ago, 1 year ago). Someone told me (Caroline?) that your body gets rid of things in order-ish. Mercury goes, then lead, then other things start leaching out? Don't know if that's true but it would explain the mercury going down so much and less gains in the lead (although his lead wasn't that high to begin with and did improve over all).
  4. Hi everyone, I have simply the best news! As some of you know Hoyt had an abysmal summer - the worst tics ever. We decided we'd retest everything and added many more tests to boot (still waiting on the genomic test by the way). So happy we retested. While waiting for results however he got so much better - to the point that he's enjoying some of the best health he's had in years! Well the tests told us a lot, still has some of his already known deficiencies (B-6, magnesium, Vit. C) but his lead is almost at normal and his Mercury has gone down so much he's just peeking into the yellow w
  5. Hi Kim! I've missed you! Our main doctor recommended it ages ago and he will get the results but we also are going to start seeing Dr. Nancy Mullan (Burbank) who won't even begin seeing you until you have the results in hand. It was her office who told me to only get the $700 test because Dr. Mullan interprets the results - when you order the more expensive test you get Dr. Yasko's interpretation with it - I believe that is $300 more. Both Dr. Schwartz and Dr. Mullan were recommended to us by Jacquelyn McCandless (the Autism Guru). We shall see! What was interesting when first talking to
  6. Hi! My two cents - the Rescue Remedy is amazing! It works for ME, my son (who it is mainly for) my husband, and all my animals! It just takes the edge off of anxiety for a calming effect. The night time one is also great! Giselle
  7. Hi everyone, long time no "see"! Been so busy with summer, Cub Scouts, new pets and life in general! Hoyt isn't doing so great, got really sick and his tics went nuts and I was also pretty lax about his food on a summer trip but he is starting to improve - hopefully can go to school. But I recall always having this worry just before school - will he go?, will I home-school? - and so far he's always rectified just before school - let's hope it happens again! Anyway, with this latest huge bout of horrible tics we redid a lot of tests but two new ones and I'm really interested to see if anyon
  8. Hi Carolyn, well that sucks - guess you won't be buying it then - although you might still try it as Hoyt reacts quite strongly to artificial anything but not to this. Mind you we don't use that much of it - only on cinammon toast now and that's maybe once every other week. He's been eating olive oil with anything else we used to use margarine or butter for - but if I recall you have issues with olives? I've even been putting olive oil on popcorn and using lots of salt - oh, I forgot to tell everyone, last round of testing showed he wasn't reacting to corn anymore! What a total relief - I
  9. Hi Everyone, thank you for your kind words about Hoyt. He got a little better and then is down again - it will pass, it will pass, it will pass. In the meantime my Mom forwarded this to me and I thought it was perfect for our little "puppies" - perfect but just different. A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell. He painted a sign advertising the 4 pups. And set about nailing it to a post on the edge of his yard. As he was driving the last nail into the post, he felt a tug on his overalls. He looked down into the eyes of little boy. 'Mister,' he said, 'I want to buy one
  10. Well here we go again - spring sprung early here in So. California - and Hoyt is just crippled with tics. He's been doing really well and then spring comes and he tics about once every two seconds- poor guy. I started the Zyrtec last night to try to alleviate his rising Hystamines but so far nothing. He was sick recently so I think some of the conjestion is left over from that but this is just painful to watch. He went to the chiro on Friday and our Osteo yesterday with no relief (they usually help a lot). We were supposed to go to Disneyland with another family today and he said he was t
  11. Hi Carolyn - mine does contain artificial flavoring - but it doesn't seem to effect Hoyt - but I hardly use any - just every once and a while - usually on cinammon toast which is maybe every other week or three. I'd be interested to know what the artificial flavoring is made from so if you find out I'd love to know. Giselle
  12. Hi everyone - more monkey business with antibiotics - we're doomed - now I never have to remind myself why I pay $10.99 a pound for organic beef! http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/conte...0301311_pf.html Giselle
  13. Hi there, we had the first test done as the second wasn't available back then - but next time we do it I'll do the second - it sounds like it's a lot more comprehensive. If money is really tight though the first test is really good too. It really helped out my son. Giselle
  14. Daniel, you're so totally right! It just so happens he's doing really well right now and I really didn't expect him to tic at all so wasn't really looking at that, more at whether he would get the words correct because there were two verses that are so similar as only a few words change in them (he got them right) - but thought you all might like to know as this is the board for it. He was so tired this morning he didn't want to go to school - and even mused why would they have school after such an exciting event? I told him it was for people to be able to tell him he did a good job -
  15. SO HAPPY! Hoyt did wonderfully! He was great! He didn't tic at all as I expected but apparently there was SOME movement up there - he told me "my knees were knocking together I was so nervous!" You would never have known it though. There was about 600 people there and everyone loved it. I was taking NO chances - he soaked in a magnesium bath for 40 minutes before he had dinner. Dinner consisted of grass fed beef, artichokes, brown rice and a little extra B12! The cutest part was that he told the girl he's had a crush on for two years that she looked pretty and that her dress was
