Here is my story about my two boys and what we went through and what I learned regarding allopathic verses homeopathic treatment.

When my children were small I lived in Dallas, Texas. I didn�t know a homeopath at that time. I was isolated in a neighborhood and a lifestyle that was not very forward thinking. There was little alternative anything around.

The boys, when they got to the ages of 3 and 5 were suddenly plagued by green snotty nose, mild fevers. The youngest, Travis had also become a head banger. He would lie on the floor and bang his head when he was angry or frustrated. Very scary for a parent. You get accused of abuse and being a terrible parent when your kids do stuff like that. I took them to a medical doctor, an ear, nose and throat specialist as their symptoms encompassed all these parts. From there they went onto antibiotics, SIX TIMES IN ONE YEAR, the both of them, to try to control this out of control disease. It was awful. The kids were unhappy. They never felt well and then the baby sitter condemned me for being a bad mother and not getting them well and giving her kids the green snotty disease also.

(after reading the first post on this thread and rethinking it I see that Travis may have developed the head banging after use of antibiotics. He wasn�t always like that!)

In the first week of April, after they had been on antibiotics a full 6 times the kids were taken to get their vaccinations, which I had put off as long as I could but since we were planning a trip to Mexico I thought that perhaps they should start. They received their MMR and polio vaccine.

Then one day, about two weeks after the vaccinations, the eldest, Jake, had a seizure while at daycare. They rushed him to the hospital. By the time I got there the doctors were starting a spinal tap to see if he had meningitis. No, not meningitis but they started Rocephin, a big guns antibiotic anyway. The next day Jake had a major yeast infection on his bottom and about 10 blisters on his chest and stomach. Odd-looking blisters. They looked like little blisters that had blisters on the blisters. One nurse came in and said, �Oh he�s got the chicken pox.� The pediatrician came in and said he had an unusual viral infection not commonly seen around the US. One he had only seen in textbooks. Turns out the seizure was a simple febrile seizure.

Then the ear nose and throat specialist came by that we had been seeing over the past year. He recommended that we have a cat scan to look at those sinuses that were still a problem. He came back to tell us that the scan showed the worst sinuses he had ever seen in a 5 year old boy and that he would be on ANTIBIOTICS AND STEROIDS FOR A LONG TIME!

Well, I freaked. I took my spinal tapped, cat scanned, drug poisoned, Candida laden, blistery babe home and vowed I would find another way.

But I didn�t know where to turn. So I got on the phone and called all the health food stores and talked to everyone that would talk to me. Finally after about a week of phone calls I was given the name of Dr. Joseph Goldstritch MD. He had at one time been a cardiologist at Texas Southwestern Medical School but now he only did homeopathy. I had an appointment with in a week.

Dr. Goldstritch was kind of cranky with the kids. He didn�t like misbehaving children and he was upset when I dragged Travis along, (who just loved to misbehave) with Jake to the appointment and the doctor had his way of letting me know of his disapproval. After a rather lengthy interview he gave Jake the remedy tuberculinium and he said that he would treat Travis for free. Travis received chamomilla, the homeopathic form of chamomile. Travis also went on to have a case of chicken pox at some point in the midst of all of this that lasted about 4 or 5 days.

Within a week Jake was fully well. Travis was much better too, not banging his head so much and more pleasant to be around. He was now actually letting me hug him, where before he would push me away. In fact Travis had pushed me away since the day he was born. We had had difficult bonding.

When I made my follow up appointment Dr Goldstritch wanted to make sure I brought Travis along. Travis was then treated with tuberculinium also as his green snotty nose had returned again. Both boys received tuberculinium, made from the pus, in homeopathic potency of course, of the tuberculosis toxin. (this kind of remedy is called a nosode) Within a week or two from that second visit the boys were fully well and never took another antibiotic for green snotty nose again ever. Travis never banged his head again and all tantrums stopped within a month of homeoapathic treatment. He allowed me to cuddle and hug him freely for the first time in 3 years of his little life. They are now 20 and 23 years old.

I asked Dr Goldstritch why he thought Jake had a seizure. He said that he thought it was likely that the vaccine he had had two weeks before compromised his immune system so that it could not normally adjust to deal with the chicken pox. That is why his fever raged and caused a seizure and why the pox looked so unusual. He said that a healthy response to the pox would have had more blisters, less fever.

Travis ended up being fully well. At the time we were bounding back and forth between Dr Goldstritch and a pediatrician. Travis had developed hard lymph nodes at the base of his skull and this worried me and I wanted a diagnosis which I didn�t think I would get from the homeopath. The pediatrician said that some kids get this with the chicken pox and its likely due to having a hard time clearing the virus. He said it would pass off eventually, and it did. So there again, both boys likely suffered more than necessary from the MMR when it came to getting the pox.

A year later Dr Goldstritch moved to San Diego and I was left again without help. This is when I started to study on my own. I already had some remedies given to me by my first homeopath, about 40 remedies, that he called his emergency kit. I started to teach myself and to treat all the various things that come up in a family. With this kit I have kept them off of antibiotics for the most part over the years. Later, I advanced my kit to over 600 remedies.

I don�t know if this counts as a miracle in your book but it certainly did in mine. The disease my boys had was a major stress on home life. No one was happy and I was worried all the time about their health and all the drugs they were taking. All that dissipated after treatment from the homeopath. All head banging stopped and all infection cleared never to return. It�s been about 20 years now the boys have been antibiotic free, except for one case of severe sore throat in Jake when he was 18, that would not resolve with homeopathics so an antibiotic was done. (most likely due to my less than desirable homeopathic prescribing skills)

    I would like to say that it's unfortunate, that the combination of Pox and Vaccine were recurrant together. Had thay occured seperately, then potentially there would have been no issue.

    However it remains clear the practitioner you saw initially, had a positive hand in your childrens outcomes.

    I personally from all the evidence I've seen here, would never doubt for a single moment, you are and always have been a very good parent.

    I have no children, but I often recognise the kind of traits, a good parent should have in people that have them, and the way you interact with people on here is proof of that.

    You're a good person with a good heart, and there should be more people like you around.

    I'm glad things turned out well for you and the family in the end. It's good to know you got a positive outcome and I wish you well for the future.

    It's good to be sharing a board with people like you, and I respect and value what you have to give on a site like this.

    Best wishes and take care
