Shannon:


Look at soy - promoted as natural and healthy, but most likely caused my daughter to be diagnosed with Graves Disease. other two children did not use soy based formula and they do not have thyroid problems.
.


Oh snapps :S , I had switched to soy milk for the past 5 months, (ocassionally I have used whole cow milk in powder form these past 5 months). I went from regular milk, to rice milk and now soy milk. Okay, going for Almond Milk next. Thanks for sharing Sandi. I didn't realize Soy milk had sooo much controversy


NDGal, soy is VERY bad. For a lot of reasons. It is phytoestrogenic and they know the increase hormone load has increased breast cancer rates hugely. Soy is grown in soils that are toxic because it "sucks" up the toxins and makes the soil usable for other crops then. Of course, those soy beans are then sold and used in foods - full of the toxins they took up into them. :sick: Lots and lots of other issues with it, but stay away from it. Hemp milk is a good option, but a better option is coconut milk. It has tons of good medium chain fatty acids and is not loaded with carbs like the other alternative milks are. Much better for your health.

Shannon, you asked about my son. My son is WELL today because of homeopathy! Not only is his immune system fixed and functioning well now, a wonderful side effect has been the healing of his 40+ food allergies. We eat a totally normal diet for the first time in years. I am grinding my own flour, keeping things as close to the source God created them and enjoying food again!! We had been so very limited. Our whole family is using h-pathy for different issues now and all of us are seeing great strides in healing. I'm personally looking forward to kissing my autoimmune disease good-bye (it's doing well in healing).

Best wishes to you!!

BTW, MDGal, unless you're allergic to it, whole RAW milk is your best source of dairy. Or raw goats milk if you don't like cow. The Weston A. Price Foundation has lots of good info on raw milk on their website.

Raw milk - not something I would drink myself or give my children [and I believe pregnant women are not supposed to eat/drink anything that is not pasteurized].
I know this is an old article but I have to post it anyway
www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6481912
"Conversely, the role of unpasteurized dairy products in the transmission of infectious diseases has been established repeatedly."


This is from the Ministry of Health, British Columbia
www.healthlinkbc.ca/healthfiles/hfile03.stm#E46E13
"What are the risks of drinking raw milk?
Raw milk is not pasteurized to destroy germs or bacteria which can cause disease or illness. As well, raw milk may also come from farms that are not approved, inspected or monitored by government.

Some people say they grew up drinking raw milk and never became sick from it. However, public health authorities know of many cases of people who became sick from drinking raw milk.

Mandatory pasteurization of milk has eliminated large outbreaks of milk borne disease in Canada. However outbreaks still occur and remind us of the hazards of drinking raw milk."


www.fda.gov/Food/ResourcesForYou/Consumers/ucm079516.htm
"Raw milk is milk from cows, sheep, or goats that has not been pasteurized to kill harmful bacteria. This raw, unpasteurized milk can carry dangerous bacteria such as Salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria, which are responsible for causing numerous foodborne illnesses.

These harmful bacteria can seriously affect the health of anyone who drinks raw milk, or eats foods made from raw milk. However, the bacteria in raw milk can be especially dangerous to pregnant women, children, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems."

Just curious - do you eat raw eggs Patti?

Yes. Off my own land, from my own organically fed chickens. I know their conditions. The same goes for raw milk. I would not buy raw milk from a mass producer because you cannot keep the process as clean as it should be in that way. But I have no issue buying from my own sources, where I've seen the conditions the cows live in, see the milking process they use, etc. Small family farms that know how to do raw milk. That would be a wise thing for anyone to do. If you look up the statistics I believe it was 1700 or 1900 people were killed year before last drinking pasteurized store milk. More people die from it then die from bacteria laden raw milk. Since my husband used to work at Darigold we're pretty familiar with the distasteful practices of those places. If you think they're "clean" and kill the bacteria in milk by heating the milk then you're sadly mistaken. I wouldn't advise eating commercial yogurt or ice cream if I were you. :sick: Not to mention that homoginization causes severe leaky gut which leads to all kinds of health issues.

I'm not going to get into a long protracted conversation about this with you. I've done my research over the years. You can do yours. I made a statement to MDGal. I happen to know she's rather intelligent and will surely do her own research. ;-) BTW, I trust the NIH about as much as I trust the CDC and AMA. In other words, not at all. :whistle:

Patti,

I think you'll like this Youtube video of a farmer in the U.K., Oliver Had, who has been using homeopathy almost exclusively on his dairy cows (I think he has around 300), for 15 years now:
"Homeopathy works for me and my farm animals!" by Oliver Had
www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGijmjBD94k

Quite impressive how they've been able to almost totally get rid of the usual antibiotics that are so frequently given for mastitis. They use it for all kinds of things, though, from helping with the calving to treating hoof diseases.
If the animals are kept healthy and in clean and humane conditions, that goes a long way to assuring that the milk is healthy. How can nutritious milk come from a sick and stressed and highly medicated cow? We know that if a mother is stressed or sick or angry, that many times her milk goes 'off' and some babies will then refuse to nurse. It seems to me that it might be a similar thing with cow's milk.

I quite like this guy, with his English accent and all, and he has a rather dry wit--very enjoyable to watch.

Interesting. I have done h-pathy on a few chickens we've had but I really need to get a good book on the subject. Well, I used in one of our new kittens a few weeks ago too. :-) It seems the symptom pictures are mostly the same, but they do have some differences. My vet uses it too but not exclusively and you have to ask her to use it instead of traditional vet medicine. But at least it's available here which surprised me. Honestly, we live not far from two different dairies and it makes me so sad everytime I pass them and they have hundreds of cows, standing on cement eating and then another huge batch waiting to be milked. The conditions are deplorable. Even the kids will say, "mom I could never drink the milk from that place" and we've never really said much about it. But instinctively they know cows should be on grass and not standing 12" apart on cement. :( Or maybe they know that because of the farms where we get our meat and such from.

Thanks for posting this!

My last count was 29K yaayyyy!!!!! Some progress is always good. I know I will see triple digits soon by God's grace :-).

I will be starting a new remedy soon also since my immune system has been quite stubborn and slow with the progress. Anyway, that was expected given the amount of prednisone I was on and the duration.

Patti, I will let you know the results, your boy's story and testimony is what I am hanging on too:) . My case sure has been a stubborn one for April but when there is a will there is a way :-).

God Bless you all and keep the faith and hope alive:) :) :)

But I just might be more thrilled that my life as a cook has gotten soooooo much easier (and tastes better!). :laugh: Nah. Platelets being normal definitely means a ton. This is a good jump for you. Keep at it. I don't know about being stubborn. My husband might be in a race with you for that! :-):whistle: He's been a tough nut to crack to but I think we finally did it. :-):cheer: Keep us posted.

Hello everyone - my last count was 31. Yayyyy to homeopathy. I've had dips to the teens a few times but I'm up to the 30's now. Still very hopeful

I guess homeopathy has done the best it can for me. Platelets still ranging between 17 and 36. So, now it's all up to God to heal me. Homeopathy did help though, so those of you thinking about it, give it a try!!!!! I had no side effects. Stay blessed people!!!!

MD - it's a bit early to declare your platelets stuck. :) Luke has been in treatment for just over a year and we are just sitting at the edge of "normal" counts now. You've been at it about half that or so. Don't give up yet. It can take time to work through previous drugs and patience is absolutely the hardest part of this treatment. Hang in there and keep at it. :)

How did you do with the last remedy and have you gone back to your constitutional or are you still on the interim remedy? It's REALLY important to stay on top of things when you're using remedies. If you have long breaks between dosing (longer then you should) it would REALLY slow down any progress. Consistency is so important. How are you doing staying on top of your dosing?

Hi Patti -
I took the last remedy for 3 days (one a day as April instructed) then waited for 4 days and took my constitutional remedy. I did my counts one week later which was yesterday and I'm at 23.

April had also mentioned we may have to go one more row on the periodic table to get my right constitutional remedy if this one is not giving me the boost I need. So, still hanging in there :-). My bleeding symptoms have improved by a lot. Last week I bit a huge piece of my tongue while eating, it was a horrible bite, almost chopped off a piece of my tongue...horrible. It bled for maybe 3 mins and stopped. I thought my tongue will have a big black bruise for days but by the next day my tongue was clear again. So I have noticed a lot of improvements. I barely see the red dots on my skin. It's the platelets I'm waiting for but my symptoms have really improved. I noticed the Xray gave me lots of energy, so I took advantage and worked out a little:) .

Those are good improvements! It can be hard to work through layers. Especially if you've had a lot of actual drug treatments (can't remember your specific treatments). But it will happen. Your platelets will get there. Just keep working through it. :D Maybe in time for your wedding. :D :D I used to tell Luke, patience and persistence, and we would get there. :) I'll tell you the same. :) Glad you're seeing good improvements in other ways too though.

Haven't had much change since my last update. Also haven't taken a remedy for 5 weeks. For no reason I started experiencing muscle spasms and twitching eyes. I had to order the mag phos cell salt to help with that as the muscle relaxant the dr gave me did not work. The spasms are almost gone, except for the mild twitching eye.

My counts are still about the same. Today I had what I thought was a flare up. Petechaie all over one of my breasts which was very unusual for me, I barely see the spots normally. I panicked and went to the lab. My count however is higher than it was last week. That has confused me a little. Just wondering how my symptoms seem a lot worse than usual but my count is going up. Either way, I'm happy though. My highest high was 3 weeks ago at 42. Dropped back to the 20's and now 30's today.

Hey! Wondered how you been doing. :) I like that your platelets had a good bump. Your body is starting to work things out. That's a good thing! :) Stick with it, be persistent, you're getting there. Is it time for a re-dose?

Take care!

Hey MD Gal,

Just wanted to encourage you. We are 1.5yrs out now and Luke's count yesterday was 155K. :cheer: We're settling down now some as the pendulum is swinging more in balance. Hang in there and keep at it. Now that your body is starting to move it will go back and forth a bit before balancing out at normal.

Slow and steady, right? Working through all of the previous treatments can take time. I am thankful we didn't have too much to work through for Luke. Your body seems like it's finally hitting that increasing point since you hit the 40's once. Keep me posted. I think you'll keep seeing it creep up.

Happy New Year. Still on my homeopathic journey, been on it for a year now. I ended last year with a count of 42 whoo hooo!!!! 2011 was a med free year for me, all I did was homeopathy after I was able to get off steroids using homeopathy.

Started 2011 with a count of 10 (right after getting off steroids and all the infusions in 2010. 2010 was a rough one for me):dry:
My counts bounced around a lot as healing progressed with homeopathy. I have noticed a pattern with the healing, it's mostly been consistent. After taking a remedy, looks like my counts take a step back and 2 leaps forward. Then they take another step back and 2 leaps forward, pushing me to a higher number each time. For example: If I did a count and I was in the teens, my next 2 counts will be in the higher teens and mid to upper twenties then I would drop again. My body has been doing that consistently and I have gotten into the 30's and now 40's just in that same way. One step back, 2 steps forward.

Will be contacting my homeopath soon, still winding down from the nice long Christmas/New Year vacay. I can't believe how far I've come under her guidance. Hopefully one day, I will be posting here that I have a count of 80, 100, 150...:)

I'm glad your counts are going up! I started my journey about a month ago, and my counts already went up a little. Could be a fluke, but I'm hopeful. It's not saying much, but I've been med free in 2012 so far, and I'm glad you pointed that out and made it through 2011!

Glad you are trying homeopathy dbtkrieg. I hope it gives you a good boost. The concept of how homeopathy works is not easy to grasp but somehow it has been working on me very slowly though. I think other things have also healed in my body. I have not given up on it yet. You may get to success quicker than I am but don't expect it to be a quick fix, sometimes it takes time for the immune system to heal. Patti on this forum has been my main source of encouragement and I am still hanging in there. Her son survived a platelet count of 0 and he is normal now.

My hematolgist and I still have a very current relationship just incase. I get my counts done now monthly but I have a slip to do it weekly just incase I see anything wierd. Here is to more platelets:) :)

Just wanted to post an update. My platelet count is 75 today. To God be the Glory!!!!!! I am quite excited.

All of last year I was doing only homeopathy and I moved from a count of 10 to my highest count being 43. I started this year with a count of 41, then got the flu and platelets crashed to 6. Was given IVIG which lasted only about 2 weeks and I crashed back down to the 20's. I was stuck there for a while. I tried the Papaya liquid extract but it only made the platelets go lower and I got a bloody nose for the first time, so stopped the Papaya (not discouraging anyone but it didn't work for me).

I felt so discouraged because I have been on this healing journey for ages but thank God for April. She immediately thought about a better remedy for me and had me start on a new one. She is just awesome and so passionate about what she does and she is always motivating me to keep pushing forward with my treatment when I give up hope. She got me back on track with my homeopathic treatment and my count is 75 today. If I can see 75 I know I can see 150 someday:)

God is the ultimate healer of all diseases but I thank him for sending the right people my way to help heal me. Stay tuned because I will be posting soon, that I have a normal count :-)

Have an awesome day everyone

That's amazing, I'm glad it's finally really working for you!! I knew it would if you gave it time! I was thinking about you the other day, wondering if you were getting better yet. I can't wait to hear your next results being normal!

Just so you know, when I got my results in February the automatic count was 84. The doctor ran a manual count on them and they were 180, so you could have a much higher count than you think. My counts were never that far apart from each other, so I figure the homeopathy may have had something to do with it.

Jenny, those are awesome results. I think the hospital only runs an automated count on me. So I guess my count may be higher than I think.

It's amazing what a $15 bottle of a homeopathy remedy is doing for me versus the $30,000 IVIG treatment that only lasts 2 weeks.
