Rodger: Recovery from Asthma

Here’s my son Rodger’s story of recovery from asthma. Rodger was a fairly healthy and typical toddler until he began to show signs of environmental allergies and asthma around three years of age. While he did have eczema (a subtle sign of immune dysregulation) as a baby, there were no other signs that anything was amiss with Rodger as an infant or toddler. Because Rodger’s father, Rodger Sr., has known allergies to nuts, we kept highly allergenic foods out of Rodger’s diet to protect him from any possible harm. When Rodger entered preschool at three years old, we knew they could not control our son’s exposure to allergens, so we felt an allergy test was in order. Sure enough, Rodger tested positive on a serum IgE test to shellfish and nuts. We closely monitored his exposure to these foods from that point on because they knew how dangerous these allergies could be. During September of his first year at 3-year-old…

Recovery from Sensory Processing Disorder, Reflux, Asthma, Eczema

Maria Rickert Hong‘s Children: Recovered from Sensory Processing Disorder, Acid Reflux, Asthma and Eczema, and getting healthier everyday! Let me tell you about my sons’ recovery from sensory processing disorder, acid reflux, asthma and eczema. I used to wonder a long time ago if these issues were related to each other and to their developmental delays, anxiety, failure to thrive and mitochondrial dysfunction, and now I know that they are. All of these issues are related to gut dysbiosis (in their case, a system Candida infection) and toxicity.  They are both full of heavy metals (mercury, lead, arsenic, cadmium). My older son is at the 97th percentile for heavy-metal toxicity; my younger one at the 90th. They both got it from me when I was pregnant with them.  I didn’t find out until after my older son was over 4 years old that we were all full of heavy metals. My concerns about my sons’ problems were dismissed by all…
