Hmmm. That's not normal..
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi M,

I'm so glad that you are choosing to work with natural treatments with your son. But it's REALLY unusual for a kid that age to have chronically loose stools. It's very possible that he's picked up some intestinal pathogen that's giving his digestive tract a hard time.

I highly encourage you to take a look at the Intestinal Pathogen Testing that I offer. Even if he's been checked before, regular labs are TERRIBLE at finding intestinal pathogens and routinely miss them.



If he does have pathogens, it could really solve the digestive problem and solve some of his ADHD problems too. And if its a pathogen called C difficile, which I suspect because of the loose stools, having it for years could cause digestive tract damage years down the road, so it's good to get checked for it.





I also agree with you that many kids with ADHD do well on Magnesium and that oral magnesium isn't a good option for him. You could get magnesium to him through his SKIN though in two ways. You can do BOTH and not worry about getting too much.

1) See the Epsom Salt Uses page to see how to do an Epsom Salt Bath. Do that every night before bed or on days that he is especially revved up.

2) After you dry him off, rub in some Transdermal Magnesium Gel, which will also absorb through his skin. It'll be a great one-two punch to get him relaxed and sleeping well.


There is a great Magnesium Gel through Dr. Mercola. It's 'Ultra Pure' from ancient seabeds and is a good source of trace minerals and lots of magnesium. You can get the Transdermal Magnesium Gel here. Highly recommended.

More about Parasites and C Difficile
by: Marvi

Thank you so much for the info! Can you tell me more about your intestinal pathogen test. Do I have to send in a sample or is somehow literally done in MY home? My husband wants me to have him tested at the doctor for free first, since we've never done that.




I looked up that C Difficile Infection thing, and it looks like the treatment for it is certain antibiotics.

Would you treat it differently? It would be good to know that up front, as I'm sure the doc would put us on the antibiotics pretty immediately. Want to do my homework first.

Thanks. Oh, and how often would I do that magnesium thing? Every night?

Thanks again
M

Parasites and Magnesium...
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi M,

No, the SAMPLE for the test is taken in your home, but then goes to a lab. No test tubes and chemicals and microscopes required!


The parasite test info is Here. It COULD be C-difficile, but it could be a whole bunch of other things too. Common bugs are:

Blastocystic Hominis
H Pylori
Giardia


and the list goes on. C-difficile just came to mind because it causes diarrhea, but many of the others could too. And yes, A very specific Probiotic work great to get rid of C difficile and herbal treatments can be used for many of the others- although a couple of different ones REQUIRE antibiotics (that doctors often get wrong! So check with me first if the test comes back positive.)

If his test comes back NEGATIVE (which it likely will because hospital lab tests are TERRIBLE at finding parasites), then check with me because I wouldn't believe it without getting at least one more through this specialty lab first.

And also, make sure that your doctor orders the test for 3 samples over 3 days and that increases the chance that something will be found.

Candida? or Gluten Sensitivity
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Tricia,

I'd like you to read my page on Gluten Sensitivity.Gluten Sensitivity can cause a WIDE variety of issues. Skin issues in particular can be caused by gluten sensitivity. Migraines are also suspect as well for gluten.

But for the migraines. To START with, read all the stuff on Vitamin D and migraines. But magnesium is even MORE suspect for migraines than Vitamin D is, so take a look at the Magnesium Dosage page as well.


And DO remember that your issues MAY BE a combination of problems. It's POSSIBLE that your gluten sensitivity is leading to magnesium and Vitamin D deficiencies (and even hormonal problems!). That's VERY common!! So, don't expect there to be a "Magic Bullet". There is a lot of interconnectedness.

Let me know what you think.
