2 PANS kids fighting lyme and coinfections, our journey to healing

Making excuses…

I am a member of many groups on Facebook (many, many groups), mostly all related around the topic of how to parent both a difficult to diagnose child and children with difficult diagnoses. I have to say this: Today, it struck me that we all make lots of excuses in regards to our own behavior as well as our kids. So now, I am wondering if we stop making excuses and look at how our behavior negatively affects our children’s behaviors (myself included) and just own up to our own slackness, things might be a little clearer. Lots of advice gets asked for and in turn shared around the forums, but today I realized, most people don’t really want advice, all they really want is the information on the stuff that is not too hard to do. What we all want is that magic pill, we are looking for that one parent to post who says “here, this is the easy way, do this and ~voila~ all will be good in the world, all will be right with your child.” Today there was a thread responding to a lady who has tried “everything” to help her ADHD child calm down. She said that the meds are not working and he is still having a hard time. There, along with the “go to your doctor, change his meds, add exercise, occupy his time better” and other snippets of advice, was the topic of nutrition, as it invariably is. The response to that particular advice was, “I can’t remove dyes because my child has sensory issues and refuses to eat most things, if I eliminated food choices he would starve, it’s well known that children with sensory issues will starve rather than eat!” Reading it, I thought to myself, that was a little harsh of a reply considering we all know she hasn’t really “tried everything?” Of course she hasn’t tried everything, she herself said that he is eating food dyes which have in studies been proven to have a negative effect on behavior.” This isn’t a crime, it’s certainly not compulsory to do the Feingold diet or even a modified version if that’s not where you think the benefits will be. She doesn’t have to try any of the diet interventions if she doesn’t want to. For me, I live in the realm of, it’s her child, her choices, her life.  I don’t live in her house, or walk in her shoes, I have no idea of her life circumstances, finances...

Best explanation yet for a basic understanding of methylation.

Someone directed me to this post last week on the Metabolic Healing blog.  Turns out if you read elsewhere on this site, my son still has toxic copper levels, krypto and low oxytocin. Plus looking at his DNA, it’s not hard to see we are fighting methylation vs. disease.  I always struggle to really explain it to people so mostly I just don’t.  Anyway, after reading this, from now on, this is where I will point them for the quick answer… read on McDuff! “Suppose you walked into your doctor’s office and he told you: “you look like you have cancer. We need to be put you on chemotherapy medications immediately.” “What? How are you so sure, did you run any tests?”, you ask. “No” replies the doctor, “you just look like you have cancer”.  As insane as this situation appears, this is an example of how a diagnosis is made in conventional psychiatry. …” Share this:Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new...

When things start to come together, it’s a beautiful thing!

“… patients that have unexplained, undiagnosed and hard to treat neurological problems and/or neurological regression will benefit from this type of practice. This is because we will spend a lot of time with each patient as mentioned above. There will be an emphasis on close collaboration with various specialists (other colleagues with various backgrounds), primary care providers, therapists, counselors and others while using a very comprehensive approach to provide the best care possible…” Dr. Corbier’s Upcoming New Medical Practice   “… very pleased at this time to present specific information regarding my new medical practice.  The official name of the new practice is Neurology Wellness.  The start date of the new practice will be on August 1, 2013.  I will be working in two different office locations in order to provide a broad range of care to patients. Both offices are in Charlotte, NC…” This sounds just like somewhere we need to be, appointment scheduled and booked!
