I know this thread sort of fizzled out, but I wanted to give and update on us. We saw Dr O'Hara the day after we arrived in Seattle (flying halfway across the world), so we were all a little tired. And then there was a miscommunication about the time of the appointment and she didn't really have time to see us when we got there. I was ready to burst in tears. But, she is really great and examined dd right there on the floor in the waiting room and said we could come back for the procedure later. And, dd completely complied! Since we have been looking into the tongue tie thing dd has refused to have dh or me stick fingers in her mouth or even look at her mouth, for that matter. So, there she was sticking her tongue out and licking her upper lip and letting the doc put her fingers in her mouth! Diagnosis? No tongue tie. Great tongue mobility, as a matter of fact. She also looked at dh and me and said we both have great mobility. I was relieved... and a bit disappointed. It would have been good to have a piece of the puzzle.
I know this is not related to the thread at all, but I had eggs this morning!! We went to see a chiropractor in Coeur d'Alene, Dr. Anthony Smith. He developed something called craniobiotic technique, which used to be called Allertouch. He apparently trains docs from all over the country to do this. He tested dd through muscle testing and said she is only allergic to soy, msg, dairy and wheat. None of the other things we have been avoiding (I had him double, double check
). He then treated her for those and a few other things he diagnosed (all through muscle testing). Interestingly enough, she tested negative for candida (I had him test this three times). I think it is very similar to NAET. Anyway, I feel hopeful, which is a wonderful feeling.
: Yesterday, after her treatment, my overtired, travel weary toddler was in a great mood. And she woke up in strange places or in her car seat (worse of the worst) without screaming. Seriously, I was so very amazed. If this works out well I will post more info on a seperate thread later.
