My Daughter’s Health Part 5

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 frankincense oil straight on the area three times a day. (see above pictures – that is her all healed up!) So I asked my friend if she has any oils to help with Kayla’s seasonal threats.  So we tried lemon and lavender for a few days.  That didn’t work so we then added melaleuca into the mix for a few days.  That didn’t seem to help either.  Meanwhile, we had a vaporizer in her room at night to try and help her not get so stuffed and gave her some over-the-counter allergy medicine to try and help her sleep.  But without fail, we would be up with her every night for about an hour while she was in hysterics because she was stuffy and had a hard time breathing.  So after about a week or so Amy said, “You know the more I think about it the more I am thinking she is sick and it is not seasonal threats.”  Kayla’s eczema was bad, she had a stuffy nose at night, runny nose during the day, her eyes watered and she was complaining about her ears again.  Oh, and she had a terrible yeast infection.  During this week we also had an appointment with Dr. Tom for that Friday.

So on Tuesday night, we decided to try Thieves oil on the feet as well as Oregano.  Both of these are very powerful oils.  We were hoping to kill the unwanted pathogens that what was going on in her body.  We put these on at night and in the morning her eyes were all swollen and her nose puffy.  She seriously looked like a cat.  Now I don’t think she had a reaction to the oils per se.  I think the oils were drawing the toxins out of her body and that gave her the reaction.  Either way, we decided to stop the oils (with the exception of the frankincense on the nose since it was working) until after we saw Dr. Tom on Friday.

So Tim took Kayla to Dr. Tom that Friday and he ran an allergy test on her called a Nano SRT.  The great thing about the Nano test is that it isn’t invasive. You basically clip something on your collar and on your finger. (Click here to see Nano providers in your area). It uses frequencies to see where the sensitivities and stressors lie within a body.  Her test came back that she was acutely allergic to everything on the list.  Now, no person is allergic to everything.  What this told Dr. Tom was that her body was in complete rebellion to everything we were doing for her.  So the oils, the OTC medicine, etc., wasn’t doing a thing but make her body put up more of a fight. So then he used the Nano SRT machine to send these currents back through her body so that future exposure to the substances would no longer make her body feel overburdened or stressed by the stressors.  In other words, it desensitizes her body to those and makes her “unallergic” to everything.  He said he then wanted to retest her in 6 weeks.NanoSRT (1)

In addition to that, he also did a bunch of bodywork on her.  This includes everything from chiropractic to craniosacral therapy and more.  You can check out Dr. Tom’s website to gain a wealth of knowledge which hopefully, can help one of you find a practitioner in your area that might be similar if you so desire.  Immediately after the appointment, she looked better.  Her eyes weren’t so glossy and her stuffy nose seemed to clear up. She also was way less puffy in the face.

We also were loaded back up on Probiotics (see post 2), Immunity System Stimulator Drops, Mycological Stimulator Drops, Congaplex (not pictured), and some Allergy Liquescence.  This was to help her gut health and get her immunity system fighting again.  He basically said the regimen we did last year wasn’t enough.  We had to accept the fact that we have a child who we constantly have to battle a weak immunity.  So we have to do everything in our power to aid in constantly building her immunity – not just giving her a boost.  He said most likely she will need to be on a regimen of some kind for years before her body will be repaired and able to do it on its own, and it might never.

He also told us to avoid sugar and a lot of dairy because of all the candida in her body as well.  So armed with this knowledge and a boatful of supplements we set out to help Kayla get well…

  1. Sorry to read your family going through this. Your little girl is very precious. You should try her on the Whole30 detox. No dairy, no grains, no sugar…….it cleans the toxins from your body, resets your immune system. My mother is diabetic and after only 2 weeks her insulin amounts have come down. I started it on July 10th and have never felt better. google Whole30 to read all about it…….very highly recommended by doctors (mine included) especially good for people with immune problems, allergies, diabetics. It’s just all fresh grass fed meats, fresh veggies and fruits and lots of good fats. It’s great……it might really help your daughter if nothing else is working.

    So sorry to hear of you daughters ill health, but I do ask if all of these things you are giving your daughter have been tested by the food and drug administration and do they work well together? I am a nurse and it always troubles me that we try these things on children without enough research. I know if it seems to work we are willing to try anything that makes us feel better but, even “natural” things can sometimes be dangerous in terms of our long term health…..just saying….

    • Angela Cardner says:

      Lois, I looked at the allergy liquiesence ingredients, as allergies/asthma medications are something I understand a little about… and it has Ephedrine in it… isn’t that a pseudephedrine relative? Ie same class of drug?

    • Thanks for your comment, Lois. You definitely have given me something to think about. Since I am not a nurse, I don’t always think through the medical lens. However, as a mom, I guess you have to put that nurse hat on once in a while to make sure you are well-informed. At the end of the day, I think it comes down to doing the best you can to research the approach for health you choose, as well as trusting those with more knowledge in the area. I trust Dr. Tom wholeheartedly with his approach to Kayla’s health and have definitely accepted what he says at face value without doing much research. But you are right in saying that all things have side effects – even natural approaches, and I do need to make sure I research those. Thanks for giving me something to think about…

    Becky I am sorry your daughter is going through such a rough time. It is hard on the whole family when someone is ill and you are trying to find a solution. I hope you find an answer soon that she will be able to sleep at night. I bet you just want her to be your happy healthy little girl again. Blessing for success.

    I feel bad for her.

    Beckie – So sorry to hear of your daughter’s health challenges. If she does have an overgrowth of candida – has anyone suggested kefir milk? If you can get some kefir grains and start making your own kefir milk – this is the best probiotic you can take. Usually children that need it don’t find it offensive (liquid yogurt consistency) and you can always hide it in a smoothie. Good luck on your quest and thank you for trying healthy alternatives instead of masking symptoms with drugs. Take care and you are in my prayers

  6. Poor girl. I too have a daughter that suffers from chronic ear infections and croup. My oldest son also has severe allergies and skin conditions including exzema. I just started using essential oils about 3 weeks ago. My daughter started to get croup and I used eucalyptus oil on her chest as well as Shield (Spark Natural) on her feet. It was gone in 3 days! We usually end up going to the doctor multiple times, have to give her many antibiotics, steroids and breathing treatments and usually she ends up with ear infections as well. It has been over a week with no sign of it returning. I just got my order in for my son’s allergies – an oil blend of lavander, lemmon and melaleuca. Good luck with your daughter, I know it is so heartbreaking to see them suffer.

    • It most definitely is! I am glad to hear of the success you had for your daughter and know how relieving is to finally find something that is effective. I wish you the best with your son’s allergies.

  7. i was literally in the waiting room of my sons dr.’s office when I came across this post pinned on Pinterest. I started reading about the skin growth that was helped by the oils but kept reading when your daughters allergy symptoms were eerily parallel to the ones I’m experiencing with my son. I got virtually no answers from my sons doctor. She advised me to doall the things I was currently doing to calm his skin rash/irritation. I was frustrated to say the least. I tried explaining I can get rid of it but I need to figure out the cause of it because it just keeps coming back. I am now on the search for someone in San Diego who does nano srt. Thanks for sharing your story. Maybe it will be what helps me get some answers as well!

    • I do hope so, Katie! There is nothing worse than dealing with sickness with your kids, especially when you can’t get answers. I wish you the best!

  8. I don’t know if anyone has suggested this. But have you tried vegan diet for her? Look on YouTube about raw till four and vegan mama. She cured her daughters eczema. It’s amazing and night help your daughter. Even with fruit having “sugar” the raw diet should heal her candida. It’s so sad that doctors just want to load kids with treatments and steroids ????. Good luck and I hope she gets better.

    • Thank you so much, Brandie! This post was actually from a couple of years ago. My daughter is doing very well now thanks to oils and other natural health approaches!

  9. The lady above who made a comment about FDA testing is peculiar since many drugs are not fully tested and actually come with black box warnings on the label now. People need to start thinking out of the western medical paradigm box because drugs are chemicals. Nurse or Doctor, it doesn’t matter. What matters is getting the person well and if an essential oil or homeopathic method works, then so be it. These never killed anyone, unlike the many poor souls who have succumbed to pharmaceutical drugs. Thank you. By the way, my niece cleared up her baby daughter’s eczema by switching from conventional chemical laundry detergent to a natural plant based product. No doctor prescription or toxic prednisone required.

  10. Not to be mean but it sounds like you are being taken advantage of. A little bit of research and you would know that the device that “doc” Tom used has been proven bogus. Also your previous post when the treatment worked the reason is that you placed an acid on the growth. You could have gotten a similar effect from the acid in the adhesive of duct tape. I am sorry your family is going through this but please do your research and find reliable resources when posting.
