Treatments Used

I’ve had parents ask me what treatments, supplements, therapies we used with Anthony.  So this page is all about that!  =-)   I must mention, this is all based on Anthony’s personal set of circumstances and test results. Please only use this information as a reference and NOT advice on how to heal your own child. Always consult with your doctor before trying a new supplement/medication, or other treatment.

 

 

Therapy

Physical Therapy/Early Intervention – 3 months old  – 18 months old

Occupational Therapy –  2 yrs old-  3 1/2 yrs old (no longer qualified after 3 months of bio-med protocol)

Speech Therapy – 18 months – 4 1/2 yrs old (no progress until we started bio-med at 3 1/2 yrs old, no longer qualified at 4 1/2, no longer has a apraxia/articulation disorder)

Now 100% therapy FREE!

 

Homeopathy – for PANDAS

– Dysentry c 30c – used for gut health and helps with anxiety.  Anthony did fine with it.  Took him off, no longer needed it.

– Syphillium 1M – used to address traumas in his past (Anthony’s twin passing-away, being premature)  OCD around cleaning.  Anthony did GREAT with this.  Wiped out his OCD about 95%.

–  Streptococcus Pyogenes 200c (moved up from 200c) – used to treat PANDAS and help immune response against strep bacteria.  Our homeopath said Anthony is now done with this. 

– Carcinosin 200c –  Anthony was VERY sensitive to it.  He had flu like symptoms, got a very rare ear infection (he has tubes) and then threw up and had diarrhea for days.  While Alan said this sounded like detox healing, we pulled the plug on Carc.  It was just too intense.  

Sadly homeopathy was only a “band aid” treatment for Anthony.  And once remedies were discontinued, symptoms returned.

Supplements

(This is NOT Anthony’s current list of supplements he takes! This is a list of the ones he has taken at one time or another. As Anthony healed, we had to change things up)

Kirkman Pro-bio Defense – After 2 years we switched when we found out Anthony had PANDAS and was sensitive to Strep

New Beginnings Probiotic Formula – currently on.  No strep in this probiotic and contains S. boulardi  Good experience so far.

Diflucan –  Gave to Anthony for about 1 1/2 years at different dosages.  Killed a lot of yeast. 

Nystatin –  gave in the beginning of biomed and when Anthony was on antibiotics for 6 months

Methyl – B-12 injections – Good experience but not the WOW factor for Anthony.

B1 – Anthony’s OATs test showed he was low in this vitamin.  Really helped irritable and argumentative behavior

DMG – Anthony started making 2 word phrases on this. Moved on to TMG

TMG – Anthony started speaking in sentences on this.  It is his WOW supplement.  Still currently taking, and Did 23andMe testing to see if Anthony needs this for life. He does because he has +/+ mutations for CBS and BHMT

Kirkman Super Nu-Thera – stopped because the levels of B-6 made him too hyper and gave him apnea.  This was due to his CBS mutation.

Vitamin D3 – giving all year because of VDR heterozygeous mutation

Barleans Omega Swirl – Anthony prefers this over the Nordic Naturals brand, not oily.

CoQ-H – Was on to help with mito dysfunction and methylation gene mutations.  It is the more easily absorbed version of CoQ10.  Last OAT test and CoQ10 test showed Levels are normal!

Bio-Ray LiverLife – Gave to Anthony for 3 months to detox environmental toxins (MTBE).  Rough experience.  Found out this happened because of his +/+  CBS and BHMT gene mutations. Chollera, and ingredient i n LiverLife does not work well with this mutation.

Bio-Ray NDF Plus – Part of detox protocol.  Gave for 2 months. He was VERY sensitive to it.  Found out this happened because of his +/+  CBS and BHMT gene mutations. Chollera, an ingredient in LiverLife does not work well with this mutation.

Enzymedica ViraStop2x – LOVE this stuff.  Thinned Anthonys wax in his ears which use to be a problem.  Give this while Anthony is in school.

Enzymedica Digest Spectrum – Currently on.  Give at meal times.

4life Transfer Factor – giving to help with immune system. Helps strengthen & calm immune system response. Really helped with allergies.

Phosphatidyl Serine – AWESOME stuff.  Helped greatly with the OCD anxiety Anthony would have. Also helps with concentration when Anthony is in school. Good for kids with BHMT mutations.  Anthony has 2 homozygeous and 1 heterozygeous BHMT mutations

Zinc – AMAZING supplement.  Really helped with independent play, and bad breath

Selenium –  Awesome for thyroid function.  Helping lower Anthony’s abnormally high TSH levels.   Really helped his OCD.

Xymogen Relax Max – The GABA/L-theanine combination of this supplement is great for Anthony’s genetic makeup per his 23 and Me test.

I also recommend Spectrum Supplements if your child is on any supplements.  They are by far the cheapest, offer FREE shipping, reward points and you can use Coupon Code: BIOMED to receive an additional discount. 

 

What we Treated & Tests we ran:

After doing the Alletess allergy testGenova Diagnostic NutrEval Organic Acids test, thyroid, ferritin/iron, and regular CBC work up, we took Anthony’s results and got to work

He had 30 food sensitivities, and 5 true food allergies. Grade 1 – 3

He had elevated levels of oxidative stress, Mitochondrial Dysfunction, a neurotransmitter imbalance and vitamin deficiencies

Tested to find out if Anthony had any gene mutation in his methylation pathways with the 23andMe test.  We found out he had a few mutations.  This explained why the TMG supplement made a huge impact.

We tested Anthony’s strep levels (antistreptolysin O titer (ASO) & antideoxyribonuclease-B titer (anti-DNase-B, or ADB)

Anthony has issues going on with his Thyroid (High TSH) and blood sugar.  (Hypoglycemic)

 

^^^^^^^ THERAPY ALONE CAN NOT TREAT THESE^^^^ ISSUES!!


5  Years After Starting Bio-Med….

Food sensitivities have improved. No longer sensitive to dairy. Gluten is now a grade 1 but we still completely avoid it.  He only has one grade 1 true food allergy which is wheat.

His gut has completely healed.  No more bacterial dysbosis, or inflammation.  Yeast levels just a couple points over “normal”.

Neurotransmitter levels completely normal.  Only vitamin deficiency is now Vit. B1 and we continue to give TMG.  Oxidative stress has improved but we are still working on it (added antioxidants).  Mitrochondrial Dysfunction is much improved!

We are now focusing on healing Anthony’s thyroid and treating his glucose/insulin imbalance.

    Hi Kim, when starting biomed with Dr. S was Anthony on Gluten free diet alone or was he or did he ever do both gluten/casein free diets.

    Hi Kim, my kids have both been on New Beg. Probiotic formula and both have diarrhea and lots and lots of mucus in their stool for 15+ days. I know you wrote Anthony was having diarrhea on Kirkman probiotic. Was it ever that bad and when after did you make the change from one to another. Thanks
