In our family we’ve been battling with allergies, a UTI, a virus (nasty cough), and a parasite (probably leftover from my traveling days and giarrdia…), and perhaps my gallbladder, or an ulcer, or acidic intestines, or some other unknown issue that causes me to throw up without warning. Pleasant. As you other momma bears know, we put aside our own health issues when we’re dealing with our children. We insist on them taking their supplements, hold them down screaming if we have to, and then forget to take our own…and eventually neglecting ourselves takes its toll!
Unfortunately, we only have enough donkey milk for our daughters, so the rest of us have to go without. In our attempts to heal (momma) without using antibiotics, we visited an Iridologist (Phyllis at Rock Creek Herbs in Sapulpa, Oklahoma), and a Chiropractor who uses muscle testing diagnostic methods, Dr. Morgan at Morgan Chiropractic in Edmond, Oklahoma (referenced as Dr. M.) And Dr. Fox at Key Health Institute in Edmond, Oklahoma (I absolutely LOVE her, finally, an MD that comes from a Naturopath background and philosophy, takes time to listen, and actually knew what PANDAS disease was before I showed up!)
In this post I’m sharing what they recommended for our specific issues, just in case they might apply to someone else, and as a record so I don’t forget! I highly recommend all of these natural minded practictioners, if you’re in the Oklahoma area, you should definitely schedule time to see them for a protocol designed for you and your kids.
