Well ds has been on 2-3 depending on how his symptoms changed. When we first went the poor child was a mess.
He'd had a chronic cough for about a year (considering he was only 14months that's pretty long!) He was getting all over body rashes that could not be explained by any known viruses, they would last any where from a day to weeks, go away and then return.
Eye infections that I figured where form milk. Consistent runny nose. Big red spots on his face that just NEVER went away. And i'm sure there's more, just can't think of it. The *dr.'s* were saying he would have to be on two different puffers for, well ever.
As well they were not concerned with the rashes, just kept telling me they were virual. They were not very helpful.
The first rememdy, sulphur I think, had the most dramatic change for him. Sometimes on a remedy you get a reaction in which the symptoms get worse before better, this happened with ds. After about 5 days on this remedy, his cough was wosre then it had ever been. I recall telling dh that if he didn't get any better by morning I was taking him to ER(it was a sunday night) The next day his cough was gone!! Unbelievable I know but it was gone and has NEVER come back!! He's almost 3 now. He stayed on sulphur for a couple months, till his symptoms had changed enough that we switched to lycopodum (sp?) At this point though we were dealing more with behaviour issues then medical. Right now he is no longer seeing her (homeopath) but if the symptoms return, or if something else becomes a concern we are to go back.
I'm extremely please with the results. I feel as though a life sentence has been lifted for my ds. I know others who have been treated homeopathically, and have had dramatic results as well, although for most it takes a bit longer then it did for ds (I always wonder if it's because he was so young, not as much garbage in his system to fix you know. LOL)
We also had some good results with chiropratic care, before homeopathy. It helped to lessen his asthma. He had too much going on and I think that's what was preventing the chiro care from doing more. We still take him for regular chiro care now.
Another thing you might want to look into is vaccines. We traced all of ds troubles back to his 2months shots (he's only had up to 6 months then I stopped them) He was hospitalized about 4-5days after his 2 m shot and was never completely well after that. If you don't already you may want to pospone them till dd is better.
PM me if you want more info.
