But his mommy did not stop there....oh no she did not!! She wanted to make sure to continue to help him...finding answers for his numerous allergies, finding ways to help him cope with TSW, and overall just improving his health. What a GREAT mommy this little one has!! She has looked into the GAPS diet and other things. Then she happened across the information I have been sharing about the MTHFR gene mutation. She decided to start him on the active B supplements. She had also been doing MW with him as well. And I thought I would share the pictures she shared with me showing the difference in his skin 1 week into the supplements:
His mommy wanted to know if it was possible that the active B's could work that fast? The answer is yes! I went from barely existing to going back to work and feeling great in 2 weeks. So yes it can work that fast! He will still flare until the TSW is out of his system. But hopefully he will be like me...having mini-flares that only last a very short time, being able to sleep soundly, having less itching and burning. I pray this little one jumps right back into toddler-hood....running, jumping, playing, and of course bugging his siblings like all 3 year olds should!
Many thanks to his mommy for allowing me to share his story and his pictures with my readers! As for whether or not he has the gene mutation....testing has not yet been completed. However given his many allergies from birth and his almost immediate response to the active B's, one can guess that he more than likely has the mutation. His mom will keep me posted!
As for all the other mommy's out there with little ones suffering with TSW - you are my heroes!! I have 3 kids now ages 12, 11, and 8. I cannot imagine watching any of them at ANY age go through such pain and suffering! Your strength is like that of steel! You stay up at all hours of the night with your little one, trying to ease the suffering. You take care of the other members of your household, trying desperately to hold it together! You have private moments of breaking down, but then pull yourself together to keep fighting the good fight! I want you all to know you are warriors as well! And all of you are in my thoughts and prayers as well as the ones suffering!
