My child is 99% recovered- just sharing good news

Recommended Posts

I spent a lot of time on this forum reading when my son was in the throes of PANS. I didn't read many stories where children had recovered from this horrid illness. This post is for someone like me who needed to be handed a life raft and took a leap of faith to get on it.

 

A year ago my child had had PANS for over three years and had been diagnosed for only about six weeks. He was the worst he'd ever been in all the years of having it, having every symptom under the sun at the highest intensity possible, despite being a patient of a PANS specialist. A mom on another forum I'm on suggested homeopathy. At first I thought, yeah, right. My child is ill. If he's not getting better under the care of a specialist, homeopathy isn't going to do anything. The universe opened up to make sure I was hearing her: I could not get a hold of the specialist despite calling and emailing for several weeks. My son was sicker than he'd ever been and sicker than anyone I was reading about. This person gently nudged me a few times toward homeopathy. Two of her pandas had been healed by it. Despite my mindset about how sick he was and that he was seeing the best possible doctor for his condition, the stuck position I was in led me to take the leap of faith into homeopathy.

 

I started seeing results within days- not miraculous, "he's better overnight!" results, but for the first time in 3+ years, something was making a difference. The first few months were a little bumpy, but he continued to get better. Even during the bumps, he never, ever got as bad as he'd been when we started. It's now been 11 months since we started. Since July, he has held steady at 98% normal, meaning 98% of who he was before PANS. For a few weeks now, he's been 99% normal.

 

This post is for anyone who needs it. <3

That is wonderful!! :) :) :) :)

 

Who is your homeopath? We are not getting better so I am looking more into homeopathy now.

Is your child attending school? So many of these suffering little angels are actually able to attend. NOT MINE!

I just don't know how they do it.

Yes, who are you using? The anti B's are not really working at this point so seeking other avenues. Herbs and such.

We consult with Grant Bentley, hp at www.vcch.org. There is a fb group called Homeopathy Cafe where moms talk about what they're doing to heal their pans kids homeopathically. Each person's constitution is different, so although Causticum is the miracle remedy for my child, it absolutely does not mean Causticum treats pans. It only treats my child. To find your child's remedy, you must consult with a trained homeopath who can look at their whole case. We have always homeschooled, even prior to pans.

Congrats, glad you found what worked for your family:)

 

We tried homeopathy with Angelica Lemke, and my son did not make great strides, but he is also PANS/Lyme and vey far advanced. And 19YO, having been sick for 6 years before really treating.

 

Now we are doing IV nutrients, IV abx, and IV chelation. We just started this approach so too soon to tell.

I am so glad that this has worked for you and very glad you posted.

 

Before embarking on the pharmaceutical route, we tried every natural path under the sun, including 2 nationally-recognized, published homeopaths. Both were very promising in the beginning, and more than eager to take us on, but in the end, proved ineffective in helping our daughter. We simply don't have the out-of-pocket money to keep finding the "right" homeopath for her.

 

That being said, I know it is very helpful for some folks, and if you have the $$, it's worth investigating to see if you're one of those folks!
