The Right Fit For Me

Image courtesy of Jomphong at FreeDigitalPhotos.net From Josie B., Brampton I am 43 years old with two kids, a husband and a few pets. My son, who is 21 years old, was born 16 weeks premature. I spent a week at Trillium Hospital, watched by seven doctors with no explanation as to why this was happening. He was born at 24.5 weeks gestation when my pressure dropped to 90 over 48.  They transferred me to Women's College hospital and I delivered a 700g baby boy. His lungs were not yet developed due to the short gestation period. He was incubated for two months. Then, I was allowed to transfer him back to Trillium for one more month. I took him home on his due date and he weighed 5.6lbs. When he was eight months, he was scheduled for a groinal hernia operation. At one and a half he was diagnosed with chronic asthma. I was convinced that my Architectural and project management schooling would come in handy one day but for now I would be taking care of my son and just getting a job that paid the bills. This assured I wouldn't work long hours that an Architect would work. I had no desire to have more children. When my son turned nine he wanted a brother or sister. He was no longer chronic asthmatic. He seemed to be growing out of it. We as parents decided to try to have another child, all the while knowing it may not happen. I was very lucky to have given birth to my son as I have Endometriosis and had been told that my chances were very low. We tried for a year and finally I was pregnant with my daughter. I was sick through the entire pregnancy and sad. I had gestational diabetes but she came out an apparently healthy baby girl, full term 6.11 lbs induced. When you think life is hard because your child has chronic asthma and you go into labour four months early, you could never imagine it could be worse...but it can. My healthy little girl was not so healthy after all. At her two month checkup and needles I asked the doctor why she was so floppy and crying all the time. He replied, "oh she will be fine." I asked again at her six month needle. The doctor said the same. At twelve months I took her to a different doctor who told me she had Cerebral Palsy. He was adamant that she was also premature because premature babies always have Cerebral Palsy and he could tell. Well, that was the last time she saw this doctor. He couldn't tell that my son had been premature and he was sitting right beside me. I then took her to a special needs paediatrician who was recommended by the neurologist's assistant. By the way, the neurologist found nothing irregular on all her scans and tests. We did so many different treatments and tests and specialists and everything came back normal but they advised me that she will not be able to sit-up or hold her head up or walk or talk. I decided to do a lot of alternative therapies over the years, including Naturopathic and Hbot. Through the natural medicine and tests we found out she had a lot of allergies, although the paediatrician did not know this through his tests, but did know she was autistic. He had specifically tested for gluten and did not know she was gluten and gliadin intolerant along with a lot of other things. My daughter is now ten years old. I have changed the whole family's diet. She is on a lot of supplements and vitamins. We eat very healthy. I truly believe your issues always have a root cause and that is what needs to be fixed. Also, in the past eight years I watched my parents as well as my husband's parents pass away from many cancers, cancer surgery and chemo and radiation. It was horrible to see and all I could think of was if they had used natural remedies they may still be with us.  This journey has led me to realize my true calling is homeopathy.
