Your salmon eggs will only be any good if it's wild salmon, not the farmed stuff. Although I generally dislike supplements, pills etc, I do take Vit D3 in supplement form now that I've learnt how vital it is. I use the Now Foods softgels which are just lanolin and olive oil. Check out the Vitamin D Council website for info on current recomendations.
You'll simply have to go with your gut as to what direction, just as we all do.

With biotech D3 you can open the capsule and put the powder in yogurt or whatever making very easy for children her age. I recommend biotech brand because I personally confirmed its effectiveness though lab work on my self and others.

Arrowwind09,

You mentioned that homeopathy can take some "stick-with-itness." I'm not sure I'm onboard with homeopathy yet but it would be helpful to get an idea as to what you meant by that statement. If it does take a long time the last thing I want is to get discouraged and disillusioned that nothing is helping and that it was a waste of my time, money and energy.

With my daughter, I've tried a nutrient dense diet, some supplements like Nutritional Yeast, Acerola Cherry powder and fermented cod liver oil. Recently I've added cream fraiche and homemade yogurt from grass-fed cows and she's doing great on it. I don't see any allergic reactions.

We've also been taking her to a NAET practitioner. He hasn't yet done gluten but he's done her other allergens.

When her swollen toes and swollen abdomin (it sounds hollow when I palpate it) have disappeared I will find GREAT relief. My poor adrenals need a break.

When I say stick with it I mean that the selection of a remedy is not easy for a anyone, even the best homeopaths.. The remedy might need to be changed, the potency changed, time given for the remedy to work, etc. Often a homeoapth will give you a remedy then have 3 or 4 remedies in the back of his mind that he thinks could work also.. sometimes it is an elimination process...

for instance when I had some stomach issues a few years ago the homeopath decided that I needed a certain remedy called cauticum and it was sent to me in a specific potency. It did not work. After reviewing my case both he and I were convinced that that had to be the remedy. We tried it in three other potencies with just mild effect from one of them... the he decidied to mail off and get me what is called a Q potency., that most homeopaths do not use. This worked like a charm and all my symptoms disappeared over about 2 weeks.. so it took some stick-with-it-ness. Although there was uncertainty in the process, if the homeopath keeps following the rules eventually he will get to the CURATIVE remedy, which is worth working and waiting for. After the curative remedy was found I no longer needed digestive aide supplements... I no longer had that disease..

Its not always like that but sometimes it is. Ive had remedies work over night or even in minutes as it did with a bad eczema I had all over my arms, legs and feet after my second was born. I was better before I left his office.. The itch stopped immediately as well as my desire to scratch. it took 2 days for the rash to fully disappear.
So you are never sure what you are going to get.

another time when I was suffering from insomnia and some other stuff the remedy pushed out repressed by steroids, poison oak all over my arms.. just like the initial disease but without the itch. after about 8 days it went away, as a normal case of poison oak would if my body delt with it correctly.. The insomnia and cold feet went away too. It was quite a healing crisis that brought long term benefits.

A case that I had was the treatment of basel cell skin cancer. The treatment protocl required frequent dosages over many weeks. The client had determination. the skin cancer cured though her diligence in applying the remedies as directed. I don't you think you will have to go through that type of application through with your daughter.

Children generally respond much more quickly than adults and are easier many times to treat.

I am revisiting Nat Med talk after nearly 9 years since the original post about my daughter. Wow. It's great to see the forum is still up and running. My daughter will be turning 12 years old in a few months. Her adult teeth came in healthy, thank goodness, with the exception of one tooth not coming in straight. The dentist recommends braces but I'm waiting until she gets a little older.

Her body is still sensitive to certain foods. We avoid them Constipation is a never ending battle. Psyllium is what we're using now.

I thought healthy eating could cure nearly anything but it isn't true. It helps but the body is very complex.

Welcome back.

You're right. Healthy eating does help, but everyone responds differently. Genetics is also part of it. In my family, there is a gene passed down through the generations that even skips a generation. It causes hemochromatosis, something to do with processing iron. My generation is not affected, but the next generation is. This means that vitamin C needs to be monitored.

Also, it is nearly impossible to avoid pesticides and herbicides. Even the most healthy of foods can cause unpleasant reactions in the body. I also have to fight constipation for decades. I've had allergy tests and determined that my body reacts to banana, pineapple, egg whites, and red kidney beans of all things. But that changes through the years as the body can become immune to some allergies.

Anyway again, welcome back.
