  1. We use Liver Balance and Kidney Rescue from the company Pure Body Institute of Ventura. I think these are great products!
  2. I do not have personal experience, but did hear of success with the Raindrop Therapy involving essential oils.
  3. So why are we vaccinating against pertussis anyway, if it is treatable with abx?????!! I wonder which vaccines are really "life saving for fatal diseases". My very pro pediatrician recently admitted to me that Polio was to be taken out of the vaccine schedule prior to 9/11 and they kept it on only due to the threat of bioterrorism.... Pertussis is highly contagious and can be fatal to babies...so it is really more of a "herd health" thing. If all the non-PANDAS kids in the class are vaccinated (assuming the vaccine works!) then the unvaccinated PANDAS child is unlikely to be exposed in the first place. And yes, it is treatable with antibiotics. I think the schools/health officials want to prevent big outbreaks. So I am vaccinating my child, to prevent other kids from getting sick? This doesn't sit well with me....especially when I think that Pandas is probably a vaccine induced problem. Yes, pertussis is fatal in very young babies, probably before their first vaccination. I have had several people I know whose child had pertussis and the child was then dutifully vaccinated when the time came. Beats me Well yes, you are vaccinating to prevent others from becoming sick. But the flip side of the coin is, others are getting vaccinated to prevent YOUR CHILD from getting sick. Well, and you are also getting vaccinated to prevent (hopefully) yourself from getting sick. I agree, it sounds like the pertusis vaccine isn't 100% effective anyway. I don't know if it's one of those vaccines that if vaccinated, and you do get sick, you get a milder course of the disease? Re the babies, well, I think the theory is that if every AROUND the babies are vaccinated, they are less likely to be exposed in the first place. But, we're not around any babies, so I'm not really worried about dd killing off babies with her pertusis germs (not to mention that dd is on Azith!). But I do have my qualms about many of the vaccines. My non-pandas dd got shingles (she had 1 chicken pox vax). My friend's kids got "chicken pox" years after being vaccinated. My friend said, it was funny, they didn't get it from each other (had it months apart) and it was only on 1 side of their body. I said, "Oh, they got Shingles." Is it better to do the chicken pox vax, and then get shingles at a young age (does this mean you won't get it as an adult?). Don't know. I am totally confused about vaccines in general at this point. Interesting that this came up here, while at the same time someone in our community is running a hotline with lectures about vaccines by doctors, and help with exemptions etc. I do not vaccinate myself!! I would not do it in any way. I don't think my child should be exposed to the vaccine toxins and risks with her fragile immune system, TO BENEFIT OTHERS. I am not afraid of chicken pox, 2 of my kids had it (its really nothing and grants you lifelong immunity vs the vax which doesn't) Right now, I am a point where I feel that the ONLY vaccines I would give is Rubella for a girl prior to marriage, and Mumps for a boy before maturity. Thats it. Many of the diseases with which the medical community are scaring us, really are not that bad and the risks of death are small eg measles, pertussis. Uncomfortable yes, but a vaccine injury is lifelong, and the disease is not. Great book for futher references "Saying no to Vaccines" by Dr. Sherry Tenpenny.
  4. Has anybody heard of Raindrop Therapy? I've heard of success with it. It entails massaging essentials oils on the child every day.

  7. OK, How do I find a good homeopathic practioner? I live in NYC.
  8. This is from Dr. Schulman: She has had several patients who have significantly backslid due to Greenstone brand. It took a while for her to figure this out. She writes onto the RX Teva and Sandoz only. Yes, I would recommend to change.
  9. Can anyone share what particular remedies helped?
  10. I was wondering does anybody know how to get glutathione levels up? I've heard of vitamin C, anything else?
  11. ta da Just heard about this yesterday! NAC clears mercury from the body, crosses the BBB and helps autistic kids in the process. Cool.
  12. can anybody post phone numbers or other contact for Dr. K and/or B? thank you
  13. I have had such a spot on my neck ever since my first pregnancy fifteen years ago. The ONLY time it disappeared was when I was taking a supplement for my liver (called Liver Balance from www.pbiv.com). These are fairly benign liver spots, although not pretty. Incidentally my Pandas DD is taking this liver balance now, and it is doing wonders for her.
  14. Isn't azythromycin a once a day medicine?
  15. I know a local company does make a 50 billion capsule. They are called Maxi Health. http://www.maxihealth.com/products/maxi-active-pro-50.html?pcid=7
  16. I don't have experience, but Dr. Doris Rapp is doing allergy extract shots. It is supposed to work well. Check into Practical Allergy Research Foundation.
  17. I am unsure about Diflucan..... Would you try garlic and acidophilus instead??
  18. OK so my brain is working overtime, and everything I have recently learnt is coming together in one solid puzzle. Please comment on this. There is no doubt that many of our children have extremely high strep levels and high strep antibodies. Obviously their bodies have a hard time getting rid of them despite the abx we are giving them. I have studied the vaccine controversy in depth, and the one thing that keeps on jumping out to me, is using aluminum as an adjuvent. Aluminum are virtually in all vaccines, and they bind to the antigen, keeping them in the body, so that the body produces antibodies, and keep them there for a long long time. Aluminum does not leave the body on it own. It is also found in American Cheese, aluminum pans, deodorant, just to mention a few. My hypothesis is that perhaps the aluminum our children somehow were exposed to bound to the strep antigen and is just sticking around in their bodies? And when the body has a chronic infection, is causes the brains immune system to turn on (microglial activation) and cause brain inflammation which causes all the other problems we see in our children. Aluminum toxicity causes tics and immune dysfunction http://proliberty.com/observer/20080109.htm Does anyone know of a serious way to get rid of this? I am looking into the mud baths now www.magneticclay.com OK I will get off the soapbox now. Am I talking nonsense?????
  19. Yes! My ds did this just prior to getting strep. He does not officially have Pandas, his sister does, but I have seen strange behaviors in him too. He claims that his eyes are dry and this is a way to wet them.
  20. Has anyone seen any success or improvement with detoxifications like mud baths, saunas, edible clay etc?
  21. Thanks for this list! Anybody have personal experiences with any of these? Do they accept insurances?
  22. I just came across this. http://www.russellblaylockmd.com/ Click on Microglial activation. Perhaps Pandas related?
  23. I have read up on yeast extensively. I do not have the full list of symptoms with me now, but it is long. The idea of yeast is that the good flora and the yeast coexist in the gut. Overabundance of yeast can happen when the probiotics are killed due to antibiotic. You need the KILL THE YEAST and TAKE A GOOD PROBIOTIC. Basically, a comparison would be to kill the weeds, and reseed the lawn. Good yeast killers are: Garlic Green leafy vegetables like broccoli and kale Caprylic Acid (sp?) And a good Probiotic like Culturelle will replace the good flora. There will be a die off reaction of the dying yeast releasing toxins for several days following the start of the treatment, but stay with the program. After about a week, the child should feel better.
  24. My pediatrician actually told me "There is nothing good in milk....." And he knows. He worked in a dairy through med school. He is a very prestigious doctor.
