Ok... I've tried to come back to this thread like 6 times today, and keep getting interrupted. nak right now, so hopefully I have a minute.
Recap of my remedy journey:
The morning after I got my first dose, a brand new spot of eczema appeared on the inside of my right elbow. Not too bad, about the size of a nickel... just came and stayed. My mood and energy were significantly better 2 days after the remedy, and then 3 days after that it abruptly took a major turn for the worse. Turned into a horrible, irritable, rage-ful person for the next few days. The eczema spot looked slightly better last week. Took my second dose last Tuesday, and by the next day I was feeling better (mood-wise). Within the next 2 days, the eczema spot got really itchy, and expanded to about the size of a quarter. As of yesterday, my mystery leg rash (that I had a few months ago) has returned- nothing too bad yet, just some red dots. So.... I am assuming that these are all good signs that my remedy is correct, and moving things out of me. Of course, there's always the voice in the back of my head saying that I've just sensitized to yet another food and am having a reaction... but I'm trying to ignore it.
She's still gaining weight at an astonishing speed. She gained 1/2 a pound in the past WEEK. That's how much she has averaged per MONTH since she was born, and then she had stopped gaining completely (and lost a little) in the past 4-5 months. So I am really excited about that, because she's actually moving back up in the growth charts. I've been trying to think about what else might be different, and I just realized that her food reactions aren't as severe. We've trialed rice and sweet potatoes over the past 2 weeks (both failed, as expected...
) Her eczema flared, but not too bad, and was gone within 2 days of the trial, instead of taking 3-5 days to clear as it had before. Her digestive system seems calmer- poops are better, she's not as gassy, etc.
So I am really hopeful that both of us got the correct remedy on the first try, which is awesome!!!
Oh- I do have a couple questions for our local experts. I know that my eczema and rash are good signs, things moving... but how long do I expect them to last? I'm only on a 30C dose, so I know it's slower moving than say a 200C. I just want to make sure that it is actually the remedy and I'm not just ignoring a food (allergy) reaction.
Also- DD always gets a diaper rash when she's reacting to a food, but it goes away along with all other symptoms within a day or two. After she got her remedy, it flared really bad, and has been there ever since. I cannot
get it to go away completely!! It seems better in the morning, and worse by the evening (which is weird, because she's wearing a diaper all night and has peed in it a couple times by the morning.) We've gotten more agressive with ECing- we were doing it casually but still using diapers, and now we're just using panties at home all day. Doesn't seem to make one bit of difference to the rash. I obviously don't want to medicate and push the symptoms in, but I'm getting a little concerned because she's had it so long (a month-ish?). It's not a real serious rash, it just won't go away... Any advice?
