Any way you can take some really extra special snacks/treats/toys that might keep them distracted long enough to get through the appointment? Or a special treat for one, and just stick the other on the boob the whole time? (That's the only trick I have up my sleeve over here....)
We just got home from our NAET consultation. We just met with the doc, he tested a couple things on all of us, and we discussed treatment. Can I just say
That was the first time that I've been muscle tested, and it BLEW MY MIND. He did me first, just to show me how it worked, and then did DD (through me- she was sitting on me), and then DP so that he wouldn't think it was all a bunch of hocus-pocus.
I really, really expected it to be something that would be more obvious to the practitioner, but not so much to me. NOT even close. He did white rice on me and tried to push my arm, couldn't get it down. Then he did sugar (he always uses that one for a comparison, because he said almost everyone has a problem with sugar) and my arm just dropped when he pressed on it. I was pushing back with everything I had, and I couldn't keep my arm up. Whoa.
I guess I was doubting it because I've never had good luck with pendulum testing- because I'm too aware of swaying it one way or the other- I can't just let it do its thing. But WOW. That's really all I can say. WOW. I said yes- we will definitely start treatment, so we go back on Friday for our first appointment.
And it gets better- he offers a discounted rate for financial need (which we definitely need, since this will all be cash payments for us), AND he said he would treat me and DD at the same time!
Oh, oh, oh- AND I was thinking it would be nice to do eggs first, since we have a very obvious contact IgE reaction to eggs, so it would be easy to see if it actually works or not. But in looking at his website, they talk about clearing different vitamins and minerals first, so I figured we would have to do it in their order. But nope- he actually told me (without me asking) that they would do the egg mix first, which covers egg, chicken, feathers, and it works on general inflammation.
I am really, really, really, really, really trying not to get my hopes up here. (I will start a thread about our progress after our first real appointment.)
We made it! I haven't read anything at all, I'd like to go back though and catch up on how everyone is doing.
For now... it's doable. 2500 miles, 1150 alone, about 1400 with my mom, plus a 4yo and a 6yo.
Need to go fiddle with dinner, my mom's already starting something but she's probably more tired than I am.
Suffice it to say, it's nice to be back with y'all.
I got my labs back today some things were off and found I have a 2 mutations so I NEED folate. Very good to know since DH is dying for another LO. My RBC magnesium is at 5.4. normal is 4.2-6.8 so I guess thats pretty good(a little higher would be good) I thought for sure I would be deficient...I'm actually quite shocked I'm not I rarely remember to supp magnesium.
