Thanks so much for your insight and support! I realized that she wasn't getting the Ipecac actually, and that was the one I thought she should have. I went and got it today and started it immediately. She really is doing better, but since the illnesses have been so severe off and on, sometimes it's hard to tell cause my mommy feelings get in the way. If I stand back and really assess her well being, she is doing much better than 2 days ago when I started the remedies.
I will look up a Naturopath in my area, actually a fellow MDCer lives close by me and has given me a few contacts. We have just relocted here and don't have a Dr yet, that's why I haven't gotten there. We've only been in country for 1 1/2 weeks, and she has been sick for most of it, having Whooping Cough for the 6 wks before we left!
wannabe: I understand your concern and appreciate your help! Breathing issues are close to me as well because asthma plagued me for most of my young adult yrs. It's aweful to feel out of breathe and have noone understand! I have been so fearful of the children having breathing issues and have been broken in, if you will, to accepting it. My oldest (10yo) now has viral induced ashtma and with the whooping cough he developed "spasmodic croup". It was terrifying! He all of a sudden his airway was completely closed, for 30 sec to 2 or 3 minutes! It opened just as sporadicly, and he is doing much better now that's he's on a daily puffer. I am not against her having treatemnt like that if that's what she needs! However, since I just arrived in country and don't have a trusted physiscian, I am not going to run to the Dr unless she really needs it. Beleive me, I am scared sometimes and watch her ever so carefully and she never shows signs of lack of oxygen. I am interviewing a Dr next week, and hopefully we will be able to have one to trust in. She is not vaxed and in NY they are very strcit about it, thus I don't want to be harrassed about my decisions!
Anyway, that was really long.
But thankyou for all your help and I am so thankful that through this she is getting better naturally. (((Big hugs)))
