"As for treating children, there are few who will take kids on. It's hard enough for adults to find a good LLMD but even more difficult for children. It's a sad reality and simply unacceptable. I've had doctors turn us away - refusing to see or help my kids. SAD, really really sad.
I did not know that. That is unbelievable!!!
One time, I called a highly recommended LLMD in our area who doesn't take insurance. Her initial appointment is like thousands, but I was VERY desperate at the time. The clinic refused to see my son because the doctor has a protocol of taking a lot of pills/supplements and following a strict GF/DF diet (and said it was too hard for a child to follow). I explained to them that my kid was already taking over 50 pills a day (INSANE!) plus already following a GF/DF diet. And they STILL REFUSED to see my son. So, I basically asked, "you are refusing to help my son then?". The clinic person then stumbled for words....
We've also had a PEDIATRIC neurologist clinic refuse to do an evaluation on my son. They appeared to only care about
headaches and seizures. I was stunned. All I wanted was an evaluation...
Sadly, those are not the only examples.
Kid#1: Extremely sick for several years, very difficult to treat, but doing great now!
Kid#2: Still sick now despite being treated for years but doing better (not well yet).
Kid#3: Generally good but relapsing off/on.
Me: Adv Labs positive 2016 (suspected I passed to my kids)-not as sick as others, mostly battling fatigue and yeast issues (heart/kidney issues resolved)
Treating with herbals now.
