Hope for Jedidiah

I don't have a lot of time to post right now, and not sure when I will get some! So I thought I would put up this encouraging news we got. As a side note I do have a lot of other things I want to write about and pictures to post, maybe one of these evenings. Ok, the other day at church someone told me about their homeopathic doctor. They were concerned about telling me as some people are a little leery of alternative medicine (not at our church, just people in general). She told me some remarkable stories of their family's success with homeopathy. She gave me the number for the doctor. She told me he would be honest about whether he thought he could help us. After all money doesn't grow on trees and spending more money on something that may not work would be depressing in many ways. So I got to talk with the doctor himself. At first as I was telling him Jed's history there didn't seem to be anything this doctor could grab onto and say, hey, I can work with that. I was getting very discouraged. I did, however, have a list of all sorts of "symptoms" that Jed has and figured I just needed to keep on going with it. There has been one mystery symptom that Jeremiah and I felt was a clue to Jed's problems. However any of the doctors we have seen have either dismissed it, or admitted that it meant something, they just didn't know what. Jedidiah used to sweat a lot. When he stopped nursing he stopped to sweating. Then after I started pumping milk to give to him through his tube after Jonah was born he started the sweating thing again. This is a lot of sweat, and it's toxic tasting. I mean I've tasted sweat enough to know that this wasn't normal sweat. So I tell the doctor this and finally, FINALLY we may have something to work with!!!!! He says that sweating and the fact that it was worse with milk is a sign of mercury toxicity!!!! WHOA!!!!! I told him that Jed has not been vaccinated. He asked me if I had any fillings, I said no. Then he asked if I was vaccinated....yes. He said, that's where he got it from. His whole life we felt he was allergic to milk, but a recent blood test ruled that out. Now we have a reason for why he reacts to milk. Milk makes a mercury reaction worse. The breast milk would have had the mercury in it, making him have a higher reaction when he was on it. People, people, people you have NO idea how excited I was to hear this. I have not been so excited about a possibility than I am of this. I know I should be reserved and wait and see, but I am literally bursting at the seams. So I had to share. Get ready for another loop in our roller coaster ride----one that I am hoping is the last loop :-) Ok, need to go make lunch. Like I said I have a bunch of other things to post later. Stay tuned :-)

Oh, that is so encouraging that you found something that you can work with!! I have got the "heavy metal detox" herbs from Nature's Sunshine and given that to my older boys before. I am thinking that I have heard that a sign of mercury in your system is when you see a kid writing and they press really hard. That is just something I have heard...not sure if that is true. But, Jed probably is not writing yet so that would be a hard thing to look for. My family and I also do a lot of herbs. We have gone to see and iridoliogist (sp?). She is a person that looks at your eyes and can see stuff in different organs. She is very good and I found it very helpful. She then suggested herbs that she thought would help. I also give my kiddos liquid colloidal minerals...and I swear by them.

Praise the Lord, Mrs. Pechin! I'm praying God will guide you and your family while you search for the proper help Jed needs!
Thinking of you often,
Anna Stone :)
