Healthy B and Biomed

B is doing good.  Really, really good.  I think my last post was just B struggling with the 'back from grandma's' transition.  His meltdowns are very few.  His shoulder tic happens, but I think only I notice.  It's very small now.  He's following directions in a timely fashion.  He's taking his vitamins and supplements like a champ (5 at once!).  He even slowed down enough today to take a nap!  That never happens!  He's counting well and identifying numbers.  I am so thankful for his gains.  It's these peaceful times I begin to question everything.  Maybe we're just making a mountain out of a molehill.  What if I gave him beef (or pork, or an apple, or watermelon, or......)? Maybe he's okay.  But I know he's doing so well because of the biomed.  I have to remind myself of that.  Sixteen months ago, his health was in a very different place.

A few days ago, I took the kids to the park.  I watched as B and Jilly ran ahead of me and then climbed onto the giant boat.  As they played, I realized how healthy B looks.  He's still very thin, but tall. His under eye circles are completely gone.  His face has filled out a little.  He is beautiful....and happy.  I am so grateful to God for guiding us in the right direction for B.  Our doctor has worked miracles for our little boy.

 If you, or your child suffer from food allergies, asthma, eczema, migraines, arthritis, allergies, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, tics, arthritis, GI problems, autism, sensory issues, ADHD.....I can recommend an awesome doctor.  And don't worry, biomed is not medical voodoo.  Our doc is a real MD.  Biomed is getting to the root cause of a symptom before any treatment is prescribed.  Biomed is not putting a band-aid on a symptom with a pharmaceutical.  It is a completely individualized treatment plan.  Any course of treatment is decided only after test results are viewed.  How refreshing is that?  For B, seeking biomedical treatment has been life changing.


  1. That is great to hear. And I know for you and your husband just delightful! Pure delight to see your little boy healthy and happy.
    You are such an awesome advocate for B.

  2. love this post! i can't tell you how many times i've considered taking my children there. i see some symptoms in a few of them that concern me, and it's because of you that I even know where to begin! thank you for being such a great advocate for your boy!

  3. Loving this post so much. We are working our way through a new path in this maze with our older son. Praying for lots of answers tomorrow. He's so very thin, doesn't look healthy, and is stimming really badly lately. I think some of the testing we just had done will have some answers there (get the results tomorrow, though I have them in hand).

  4. Hey, quick question, does B have cholesterol issues (low cholesterol in a blood test or high in stool test)? Our older son does (and I have been reading studies on cholesterol issues and autism, so I wondered what B had experienced.

    Of course, we also discovered our older son has allergies we didn't know about, now we just have to narrow them down. Sigh.

  5. He does have low cholesterol and takes a supplement for it. I'm sorry about the allergies. :( Who knew just feeding our kids would be so challenging?
