I got my son into see my LLMD today. She was so great. She suggested using pleo San Strep 10 drops 1x a day. Anyone have experience with this? She explained how it worked but it was a looong appt. I cant find info online about what it does. It says ingredients are strep pyogenes diluted. It sounds scary,but I recall her saying the strep in the homeopathy is different somehow. I am not about to pour strep in his mouth :o i am not much into homeopathy, but open to it.

we did use pleo sanum products for a while. . . i am generally into homeopathy and was searching for homeopathic answers. . . you can search some on this forum and check out http://terra-medica....-sanum-products.

 

 

we were seeing one doctor who used them. . . we switched doctors after about 6 months or so b/c we began to investigate lyme and other infections. the new doctor used a different company.

 

i do believe it is a good product, theory and company. it can be a long time treatment. for ds, he still showed trouble with strep for a year or 18 months of treatment. whenever we tried to wean him off, he showed trouble. similar to what people may experience with abx.

 

ds does not currently show trouble with strep and is on no strep treatment. his titers were just checked and are low. that's not full treatement with pleo sanum -- about 6 mths pleo and maybe 12-18 of another product. ds is in a general good state - i think is in a very good state concerning infections but still has some 'flips' related to immune challenges (intense stress and then a body rash from sunscreen) that i think is not 'right' that i am investigating his general state of body. so -- i think we've had a an answer for strep but not to 100% health.

 

so - it's a similar theory to abx but a different substance that has a different effect in the body. i think you just need to be prepared to possibly use it for quite some time.

do you know how it works?

 

 

this is fllying by the seat of my pants 2 years later. . . the theory is that our bodies are composed of a lot of 'junk' - viruses, bacteria, etc. it is all kept in check by an intricate system of checks and balances. problems occur when things get out of balance -- like, yeast in and of itself is not a problem, it's the imbalance of yeast that becomes a problem. another thouhgt (morbidly gross, yes) is that when we die, we do not decay from the outside in, it's a process from the inside out. think of a piece of fruit -- if left alone, it's not things that act on it from the outside, it does itself in. that's what we're composed of -- enzymes, bacteria, viruses. pleo sanum goes on that theory of "down-regulating" or "up-regulating" what is out of balance and what needs to be brought back in balance.so it's not so much a theory of "riding' the body of something, more of balancing. how it determines that and does it, i don't know.

 

 

please keep me informed what you decide to do -- we don't use it but i'm always interested to hear! good luck.

Well I see a professional homeopath who specializes in ASD and PANDAS. She has each of my sons (and myself) on a constitutional remedy (a remedy selected based on our own unique expression of the illness). My oldest's constitutional remedy is ignatia (which you could google for more info), which also was mine up until recently. My youngest son and myself are now taking carcinosin (a popular asd/pandas remedy, but there are so many so please don't self-prescribe). Anyway, we take this constitutional remedy whenever symptoms flare (could be every day or could be once every week, just depends on circumstances at hand...stress level, microbial exposure, etc.). If the constitutional remedy is not enough (say, in the case of an acute strep infection), we will then add in the strep pyogenes nosode. We may need it once a day for a few days or we may even need it once every few hours (there have been times when I have had to give it every 10 minutes for an hour...just depends on severity of situation/sx). And there has even been an acute strep infection (with positive culture) where the strep pyogenes nosode was not working and we had to go with a remedy called strep facialis (which targets alpha and gamma hemolytic strep, commonly found in stool cultures). I found this instance to be strange, being that my son tested positive on the rapid and 48 culture for strep PYOGENES. Makes me think that maybe the microbe cross-reacted on the culture and maybe there are other kids who also have other strains of strep found in the throat, but are coming up as pyogenes.

 

Hope that wasn't too confusing, but just goes to show you a professional homeopath can really get you out of a bind...
