I make fun of these new approaches, however in my joking, I truly believe they are/will and do make a difference in Jake's life.
We have ventured out to seek the therapy of a homeopathic chiropractor. Jake has been adjusted a couple times and we are also giving him supplements in an effort to detox his little body of some toxins that may be taken up residence uninvited.
The first visit to this doctor was quite an experience. She practices, what is called Nutritional response testing. It is an ancient form of Chinese acupuncture. Coming from a world of hospitals, vaccines, ambulances, and over the counter medicines, it was quite different from what I was used to.
We are willing to try anything, though. What can it hurt?
We went this past Tuesday.
Monday Jake had at least 15 seizures. 11 of these in just the 3 hours he was at school.
Tuesday his seizure count was just about the same.
Wednesday, after out first visit and supplements were given......5,or less.
Thursday.....5 or less!!
The child has more energy (a little too much for my liking...you think I would be skinnier chasing this tornado around everywhere) since Tuesday. His speech has seemed to improve and his attitude seems to be much better as well. Not to mention, look at the decrease in seizures!
We are unsure what is exactly causing this turn for the better in Jake, and we can't over analyze it. We will continue to do whatever may help Jake and right now, at least, we are succeeding!
