I have to say that since we've gone, Kai has been talking up a storm. I mean sentences and answering questions. I don't know what exactly is doing it, but all these extra supplements isn't hurting. Not only that, honestly, he loves his vitamins. He asks for them every morning and night. "vitamins!vitamins!...mommy, vitamins please!" They must be making him feel better, or he wouldn't be so insistent on taking something that quite honestly makes me cringe. And yes, I've tried everything he's taken. I'm on the diet with him.
Having said that I thought perhaps a good idea to list the supplements he's taking and what it's for...primarily for my own use and also so I have a good reference for my own personal reference, should I need it one day.
So, this is what he prescribes all his patients.
Couple of minutes before breakfast and taken together
- Lipoflow forte
- IgG SD
- Fish Oil
- Calcium Magnesium Zinc
Follow up breakfast supplement (added 7/10/09)
Calcium and Magnesium- Calcium is important for bones and with a child on a gf/cf/sf diet, it's important. Magnesium is important in methylation and sufation. the processes that correct heavy metal overload. sypmtoms of magnesium deficiency are depression or anxiety, comstipaiton, tics, spasms, and poor appetite. (Bock)
DMG-125-increases methylization. Facilitates toxins through the urine. (Bock)
Fish oil- rich in vitamin d, vitamin, a and essential fatty acids. Everyone should be taking this.
Methyl B-12-methylcobalamin--detoxifying heavy metals (Bock)
Vitamin/mineral-who doesn't need these?
Probiotics-healthy bacteria that promote good digestion and help control dysbiotic gut flora, such as candida (Bock)
Zinc-"no zinc no think" helps cognitive functioning. Zinc deficiency impairs digestion, methylation, and immune response. Often occurs because of GI dysfunction (Bock)
Well, that's all for now. We go back in three months. He also said that we would do one more hair and stool sample. After that, he would start taking some supplements away. You know, all this would have been done along time ago had our pediatrician just sent us to a gastroenterologist two years ago. Shame on them. It took us this long....it would have been sooner, but hurricane season striked and unfortunately our appt coincided with Ike. Better late then never.
