We did one in the kitchen and one in the bathroom and killed hundreds of them. I threw them away on Sunday but now we have a few back, so DH wants me to make some more traps. Those really work!!

It's a separate surgery to make them. And then they tattoo the areola on. But there are 3D artists that make them look 3D without actually having to get the surgery, and then you never have to worry about "headlights". DH wants projection. I don't. The things you never thought of... there's even decal ones so you can decide on placement.

Going to a pain consultation today at a compounding pharmacy, per osteo. They recommend something based on my symptoms and list of things I can't have, and then give it to doctor, who okays it. Then DS and DD2 have osteo appointments this afternoon, to see how they're coming along with the lyme/digestion stuff.

Hugs. I hope everything goes well.

That's really interesting Kathy! I wonder if they do SOD superoxide dismutaste ... Dr. Kharrizian mentions it as an immune system helper in his book. I used to do a website for a pharma co. that was trialling it for pain.

What's your thoughts on LDN?

Speaking of kids who meltdown... I created a new thread today b/c I came across Stephanie's (moderator of Iodine Yahoo group) site again talking about her hypoT kids:

sounds like a great idea! It's been a while since I've read about it but I'm sure there are others using it for that. Did Dr. K mention, I don't remember? Maybe he couldn't figure out how to make his own LDN product?

Good to know! I need something for DS, that I can pop in the freezer and just pull out a piece when I need it, and that looks great. Anyone tried their pizza crust, is that passable? When we were both GF (and he was corn free) I baked everything from scratch, but I'd love some fast store options for bread and pizza crust for him, and those don't have a lot of corn.

My SIL is doing LDN for lyme. I don't know much about it.
The consultation went well. Very interesting. They said there are 8 kinds of pain and different things work on different ones. And "painkillers" (the big guns) don't work on half of them. Huh. Who knew? And she didn't even look at me like I had 3 heads when I said that when I went off the four foods, my back spasms stopped, and she asked which foods and I told her, and she didn't seem surprised by that either. And when I told her I did cell salts, but not regularly enough, she explained the mechanics of them and said they'd probably really help. She's a pharmacist (and apparently was a occupational therapist before that).

So.. while I was there... I'm going to start another thread... never mind. But look for it. Called reverse engineering recipe help or something like that.

Anyone know if homeopathy/Elisabeth is covered under an FSA? Just curious...

I think I asked her and it was no, but you could ask anyway...

Sorry I don't ever post on here. I do read though. Just wanted to put this here in case anyone finds it helpful. I am doing dr k's protocol for hashi's through an acupuncturist here. I also got lyme disease in June and didn't get dx'ed till August, the antibiotics were just not kicking it. Taking the supplement now that rebalances Th1/Th2 immunity. Apparantly I am Th1 dominant (did a challenge with the 2 opposing supps) so taking X-FLM to promote Th2 dominance (ingredients are basically pycogenol, green tea extract, pine bark extract, reversatrol, grape seed extract). I started it on Friday and have been progressively feeling better since. ALL my lyme arthritis is gone, I have energy, sleeping better, more emotionally balanced, etc. I actually feel like exercising.... better than ever since I had DS (this is what happened during the trial too). I have not had such a positive effect from a supplement before (well maybe meth B-12). I remember PB saying a long time ago that Th1/Th2 imbalance was the underlying problem in these food sensitivity issues, so I think it could potentially be useful for everyone here. The supp is super expensive ($100/month). I am thinking about getting the individual stuff separately. I hope this all helps someone else. bless.

That's awesome, Jessi! Price out the individual supps - does your supp list the quantities? A couple things like pycnogenol aren't super cheap, but I bet they don't add up to $100 a month!

no, it's a proprietary blend

Slowly catching up. Glad the appointment went well, Kathy. I should buy bread more often, it's just that the kids want to scarf it down, and I can't afford a loaf a day, so, well, we do without. I should work on balancing that better.

Got back from the ophthalmologist, not what I hoped, not what I feared. Just strange. DS's astigmatism has changed axis, about 45 degrees (both eyes). The doc thought it was most likely a measurement error to start with (which is easy if the eyes aren't fully dilated) but I don't understand how that could result in glasses that are great for 4 months and then he suddenly rejects them. Either way, new glasses, then back to the office in a month to make sure that the new glasses results in well-corrected eyes. I hope this doesn't keep happening all winter and spring--the timing seems to line up fairly well with when I started chelating him again, but a) I didn't write down the day he first told me he didn't want to wear his glasses, and b) I have no idea at all about any plausible causality for this.

Strangely, basically the kiddo has very, very poor vision (he hasn't been wearing his glasses at home) and is still doing a decent job getting around the house, doing stuff. He fakes it quite well.

This sounds quite interesting. How did you find someone who did the protocol? Did he do any testing? How did you dx the lyme?
post #540 of 938
Wow, we are quiet lately!

Thats really interesting about the th1/th2 stuff, jessi! I've got the book, maybe I'll give the supps a whirl. Iirc, I've played with enough of them that I have a pretty good guess which way to go.

Spent the day at SIL's house. DD *needs* a community to hang out with. Without transitions. People who are just there. I'm lusting after cohousing/intentional communities in the area. I'm trying to talk dh into it, and he sees how it would be great for us, but the one that I'm eyeing is in the city and unschooling focused. He's really not sold on unschooling (yet). What to do, what to do...
