I once had a very wise friend with grown up children. Upon looking at their child-rearing days I was so…
So we left Dr. Eyrich’s office armed with a boatload of supplements to try and regulate her system and get her immunity strong again. I could tell within three days of her being back on the supplements that her body was getting stronger.
If you landed on this post and haven’t read the other posts about our struggles with our 4 year old daughter’s health begin here. So like I said in my last post, Kayla’s nose was healing amazingly well with the Dotera frankincense oil straight on the area three times a day. (see above pictures – that is her all healed up!) So I asked Amy if she has any oils to help with Kayla’s allergies. So we tried lemon and lavender for a few days.
If you are just beginning this story you can start with the first installment here. I left you last week with a weird growth on my daughter’s face that we had just had surgically removed (this is in February of this year 2013). Within three weeks and $2200 later the growth was back. I was so frustrated, discouraged, and I will admit- a little fearful of what the next step was going to be. Having just been told that they wanted to repeat the same surgery, but in addition to that, have her come in 4-6 times in the next 6 weeks to get a steroid shot in that area I was a little freaked. Here is where we were…
If you are just beginning this story, click here to start from the beginning and learn about my daughter’s health. So we left off where my daughter had gotten this small cut on her nose (in the cleft where the nose meets the cheek). In a matter of weeks it had turned hard and bulbous. We were thinking it might go away on its own but it just seemed to be getting bigger and bigger. We were giving it until the end of the year to hopefully go away, but it didn’t. So we scheduled an appointment with an otolaryngolist (ear, nose and throat doctor) who specialized in plastic surgery.
Now I am not a hug-a-tree kinda girl. I don’t eat organic, vegan, or vegetarian. My first preference is not broccoli and I don’t exercise near the amount I should. I could easily handle to lose 20 pounds and have a sweet tooth that could rival anyone. I don’t take vitamins and don’t check labels. I say all that to say looking at alternative medicine wasn’t in my DNA. But I was committed to finding someone in the world that could help my daughter. I was a desperate woman willing to try anything to help her daughter feel better again. And I was so sad to see the miserable look in my daughter’s eyes when she couldn’t breath, didn’t feel well, and was tired all the time.
I wanted to share with you our story of struggling with health issues with Kayla. This is so minor in comparison to 99% of the child health issues I read about daily. I haven’t talked any about Kayla’s low immunity issues because I thought it was normal and I didn’t want to come off as a complainer. All kids get sick, but when Kayla gets sick, she gets real sick. She doesn’t bounce back quick at all. And then once she is sick she gets repeated colds, ear infections, and flus over and over again.
