visit to the pediatrician. Last week we had another visit with a specialist .. hematologist .. blood doctor .. at our local Children's Hospital. I'm not going to lie that it was easy to walk into this part of the hospital .. the pediatric oncology dept. with beautiful children being treated for cancer. Our son's white blood count has been dangerously low the past 6 years but has not had the markers of leukemia or cancer. As a parent my heart was in a very low spot.
So in April I began giving him a few supplements and continued with the farm fresh food. His test results from this past week's blood draw show a remarkable improvement in his WBC. It's gone from 2.7 to 4. Four is the bottom end of NORMAL. His hematologist does not think a bone marrow test is needed.
The only change: SUPPLEMENTS ~ fermented cod liver oil, magnesium, a ten day gut cleanse to help eliminate any overgrowth of fungus .. followed by a good probiotic and two essential oils rubbed on his feet at night.
Diet ~ fresh farm eggs with bright orange yolks. NO PROCESSED foods .. Lots of organic green cabbage, asparagus, oranges, brown rice, pastured chicken/pork/beef. Homemade buttermilk/ranch dressing for good gut bacteria.
In two months he's gone from being a lethargic teen to having ENERGY! So the next time I hear his doctor mutter under his breath that my attention to my son's diet sounds boring I may not be able to still my tongue.
