What would you like to know?

DD1 has the terrible habit of sucking on & biting her bottom lip. It is red & raw. While she's getting somewhat better abouut biting it, now she's picking off the dry healing peices of skin.

Sometimes it looks red, *wet* and (yeast-y?) Other times just orange-ish and crusty.

I've tried coconut cream (from Tropical Traditions) which does help some, I've tried Emu cream and abtibiotic cream.

I realize that it won't completely heal until she leaves it alone, but what do you think would work best? Do you think this is yeast?
My dd does this and I have great success with colloidal silver. I don't have her drink it, I just spray it on her mouth. It will manage fungal or bacterial infections-I really like it.

saskiasmom, depression is yet another symtom of a problem of the gut. PM Gale Force for a pdf of her book she is working on -- precisely on this topic (well, postpartum).

I don't think dh will agree to both. (frankly the way we have been hemoraging money lately I don't feel good about both either). I'm just not sure... It would be good to know her constitutional remedy though... I have heard such miracle cures from kids given their right remedy... I would really like a miracle cure here.

Good 'cause I just put some on her. I have a dropper and just put some on my finger and rubbed it in. Hope it works!

saskiasmom,
Yes, and here's a thread about it. I've learned TONS here and used some suggestions too.

I don't know...how to make them, if those herbs would do well as ointments/salves, that sort of thing. I'd like something I can make in a day, not something that has to sit for several weeks before it's ready.

I understand that finding individual balance is key, but why do we have to work so hard when so many others (the majority) go about normal eating/drinking and dont get into trouble? For example, it sounds like most of us were going blythely about our lives before either having kid[s] with issues or suddenly having issues ourselves. Im NOT advocating SAD, I just really dont get it. Ive talked a lot about dis-ease with Dh and he underscores that people just get sick, no one expects it. I guess that's just the way it is. Sorry if Im a downer - I guess Im working on the acceptance part of this *journey* as much or more than the symptoms and diet/treatment. ...or acceptance is part of my journey.... bla bla bla
I struggle with these issues daily, esp when the results are so slow in coming.
I think that we are striving for a level of health that most people never consider is possible. And by not possible I mean they are unwilling to change their lives because they are so addicted to SAD. Many people talk to me about my diet because they have problems (yeast, IBS) and a couple of them have attempted some form of SCD or NT.. In Enzymes for Autism, she mentioned a timeline for gut healing and said with the enzymes and no or very little diet changes you should be well on the way to healing in 2-3 months. I wish! Right now I am stuck in the begining stages of SCD, eating about 15 foods, afraid to try anything for fear that DS's cheeks will rage out of control. They are on the verge of being out of control now and I have no idea what it is from, I feel ready to give up. His cheeks are far worse then they ever were when I was eating SAD and I don't think that it is from 'healing reactions.'
