But maybe your DD is too young for capsules, in which...
Sorry to take so long to get back to this. My oldest got the flu, and I have 24 week-old chicks, so I've been a bit pre-occupied.

Anyone?
Thank you both. And thanks for the reminder about Backyard Chickens. I know about it, but had forgotten. I'm on a Yahoo group, but it's moderated and it takes forever to get anything posted and then again to get any responses. I figured this would be much quicker (and it was -- gotta love MDC ). I'll look around to see what kind of vitamins are available. I spoke with a man who develops chick/chicken feed for a living, and after talking to him about my plans for a...
Our chicks arrived on Thurs. morning. All seemed to be healthy. They all drank and ate, and were active. Everyone seemed fine until this afternoon. When we switched them to the bigger brooder, one of them was just standing where we put him/her. He won't eat or drink. Not even a worm (small mealworm -- the chicks LOVE them), or scrambled egg. Pretty much all he does is lay there and sleep. His breathing is maybe a bit heavy. His wings are very droopy, even when he...
I'm still bfing my 2 yo. I want to start taking Naltrexone, 4.5mg once/day. A website describing it's use has this to say about it (LDN stands for "low dose naltrexone"): Quote: Dr. Phil Boyle, a specialist in fertility care in Galway, reported the following in 2008: I am confident that LDN is perfectly safe in pregnancy and in certain cases will actually reduce the risk of miscarriage. Thomas W. Hilgers, M.D, of the US, who developed the fertility...
Blossom, I'm so sorry that you are dealing with this. It quite possible to have huge medical issues despite not vaxing. I'd like to share our story, even though it doesn't involve autism (not directly, anyway). We don't vax, and with ds1, I thought I was doing everything right. I ate all organic, and healthy food, very little sugar at all. No ultrasound (until he was 2 1/2 wks. late and I needed one for the midwives to still deliver). I exclusively breastfed until...
So glad to hear it! Thanks for updating.
Actually, the genetic test is a swab inside the cheek. The rest of what they do, though, is stool tests. I certainly agree with trialing GF. I was just pointing out that at this point, with her already being GF, the only test that would be accurate (so far as I know) is the Enterolab test. And the reason I agreed with the suggestion of the genetic testing is that my experience is that it is hard to tell for quite awhile if the GF diet is helping at all. I might have...
Quote: Originally Posted by Jimibell so the gene testing is not the bloodwork, right? I thought I would start with the bloodwork, I'm not even sure what you mean when you say gene testing. I also am wondering, is celiac THE cause of autoimmune? I've seen many other things that supposedly cause autoimmune so I'm not quite convinced. or is it that the celiac/gluten-sensitivity aggravates the already compromised immune system? I guess I don't expect...
