Thank God for mothers. Mothers like my wife Kimberly, they always rise to the occasion; they read, they research, and they are relentless until they find quality treatment for their sick children!
I came home after work one night and Kim gave me that look – she said, “It’s been two years, she’s getting worse not better, you are going to take over our daughter’s care, period.” I began with a “but” and Kim said, “No buts, either we figure this out or she is not going to make it.”
My wife began performing intensive homeopathic and naturopathic research. Every night I came home to a stack of papers, research my wife had gathered that day, some of it, quite frankly, I initially questioned. Thankfully, because of my wife, I had already transitioned into Integrative Medicine. However, having initially trained in Critical Care Medicine, I remained somewhat skeptical.
However, the more naturopathic literature I read, the more it made sense! Why are we focusing solely on “drugs for bugs” and not on optimizing immune function? As it turned out, learning how to optimize Alexa’s “kill power” required extensive research and voluminous reading. The best studies, of course, were not from America, rather they were derived from European countries, especially from Germany. Ultimately, it became clear that toxin overload was the primary causation of Alexa’s inability to get better and, subsequently her inability to kill infections.
