Well, okay I think it's pretty miraculous!
My little girl, "Doozer," has been a wheezer nearly since birth, she came down with RSV at 2.5 weeks and has wheezed ever since then. She was diagnosed with Reactive Airway Disease (RAD) at 4 months and our pediatrician wanted us to put her on steroids, which we declined. We tried natural methods first, which the details can be found on my blog. The quick gist is we were using mullein tea, colloidal silver, tea tree oil in a nebulizer, algae-derived DHA several times a day, and adding antioxidant-rich foods to her diet to battle the free radicals in her system.
Those things would work, but only for a short time, always with a relapse. We also thought the mold in our apartment was contributing a lot, but we would visit our parents for weeks on end to try to clear up Doozer's lungs and she would still wheeze the whole time.
I knew she was sensitive to dairy, wheezing withing a few hours of me or her eating it and spiraling into being very sick for a few days. We had some tentative muscle testing done and she was also testing reactive to wheat. I was already avoiding dairy, so I went gluten-free for several weeks hoping to clear up Doozer's breathing. It didn't work.
So enter cod liver oil. I decided to start giving some to the family to battle my son's cavities. I was giving Doozer 1/2 tsp a day, now it's 3/4 tsp. Within two days of taking the CLO she stopped wheezing and hasn't started again. This is with us being busy moving and not caring about a lot of stuff, so I've actually had a few days of consuming large amounts of dairy. No wheezing ever!
So, that's my little story. I just wanted to share how excited I was! Oh, and we're not even taking the good stuff, we bought the Nordic Naturals +D. We plan on getting a bottle of FCLO after this one is gone, which won't be much longer.
