What have people done after their treatment failed? Did you find any success?
I kept trying! I'm very
open that we have had years (and I mean YEARS!) of epic failures in both mainstream and alternative medicines. How did I find success? I kept trying. If something didn't work, we moved on and tried something else. Sometimes we'd circle back and retry something that didn't previously work.
Kid#1 has been well and functioning for nearly 2 years now. It took around 7 years. Our list of failures far surpasses our list of successes. I kept trying. Eventually, we got there.
FWIW - I think virals are often overlooked. Abx aren't going to help a viral load, and I found Buhner's herbals to not be helpful for the viruses in our case (perhaps we weren't using the right ones, but practically every herbal says its anti-bacterial, anti-viral, etc). Kid#2 was stuck in his treatment, but once we added antivirals, it did make a difference for him. He is better - but not well, so he is still struggling but functioning.
At one point, I was pretty discouraged after years of failing and not feeling like we were making progress (or it was unbelievably slow). I told this to our functional medicine MD doctor, as I told him that I felt like I was running out of options. He put me (politely) in my place and encouraged me that there are still plenty of options (only limited by our creativity or something like that?).
I do consider both of my older kids to be abx failures. I finally got fed up with what happened with abx, and we chose to do a different path. Many people get well with abx, and many do not. Many people get will with herbals, and many do not. It's hard to know what will work for any given individual.
NEVER GIVE UP!
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.
