There is Hope... we found it for our son
Our son is 8 now and is doing amazingly well with his SPD and we thank our Naturopathic Dr! It has been like witnessing a miracle! I knew something wasn't "right" at the age of 2 1/2 when we started having problems with socks and shoes. And then our son started telling me that his clothes hurt him.
When he was 3, we would spend an hour in the car trying to get him out of his pjs to go into preschool. We thought if we got him there it might get his mind off of his clothes and it would just be easier. It got worse. He wore the same clothes everyday for about 6mths and I started having to sew his little pants up b/c they were getting so ragged. Our son couldn't sleep on his bed b/c of the sheets, couldn't hold his toothbrush or silverware b/c of the feeling. We couldn't touch his hair; for several yrs, most of the time, we couldn't even hug our own child. This is devastating to a parent. Our son would be in a rage sometimes 24/7.
We started doing OT and doing the brushing and everything; his OT did help, but it wasn't until God led us to our Naturopathic Dr. that my son has been seeing now for about 4 yrs. She has given us our son back b/c he even had a hollow/blank look in his eyes for so long. She started by detoxing
him of all metals, vaccines (and I'm not against vaccines, but I think some kid's nervous systems can't handle them and other medicines and toxins)and other toxins. After the 1st visit and using the homeopathics (we call yum yums) it was like we flipped a switch. Our son is having his best year ever in school this year (3rd grade).
We have continued to see our Naturopathic Dr every mth or 2. It's amazing; if he has a set back, she usually finds high levels of an environmental toxin (it could be pesticides or anything) in his system and has to detox him and then he's fine again. He has been racing BMX now for 2yrs and with that sport you have a lot of equipment and a uniform to wear. He's fine with it. Our son was also diagnosed with a mild learning disorder which alot of times goes hand in hand with SPD. He has improved tremendously with that as well. There is so much more I could share, but natural medicines has almost cured our son and his SPD has been severe. Our dr specializes in Autism and SPD and ADHD. I highly
recommend a great Naturopathic Dr. It has worked miracles for our son!!!
Sending hope to everyone out there!!! Blessings!
