Just wanted to give you all a quick update on my son.
After he stopped breathing, he was diagnosed with the flu. He was very sick for over a week. During his sickness he was not able to sleep , and after he got better he still couldn’t sleep.
He became obsessively needy and clingy. I had to hold his hand, and take him everywhere with me. Not being able to sleep made him do “crazy” things. After several days of trying to help him to sleep, the doctor wanted to give him a very strong drug to put him to sleep, and calm him down. I rejected that drug, and asked for alternative.
We decided to give Melatonin, starting with a low dose. I firmly believed that one good night sleep will help him to resume his sweet disposition. I went to VITA SHOP and got him a special tea that has calming effect, and I got liquid Melatonin. I was prepared to give him Melatonin only for two days, maximum 3 days.
After 12 days of not sleeping and just pacing back and forth, the first night he slept 2 hrs,and that was a big deal for all of us after a day and night screaming. The second night he got 3 1/2 hrs sleep. The third night he had a beautiful 9 hrs of sleep. After that night he became little Amin we all missed and wanted back, who is loving life. All praise to God for healing my little boy. His sleeping pattern still not back to normal, he wakes up in the middle of the night, but I am able to put him back to bed, and make him sleep.
As of now, he is completely healed from his illness, except we still do not have any answer why he stops breathing. That still remains a mystery, and the doctor told me that so far we were lucky catching it on time , therefore CPR helped him to come back. I firmly believe GOD has a plan for him, and all of us, and I pray that God will give me more time with him in a much happier circumstance.
This event helped me to realize when there is issues I do not need to jump, and get the strongest medicine. I honestly never been a big supporter of natural medicine, but I am slowly but surely acknowledging the power of herbs. My little boy has enough poison in his system, I do not need to introduce him to anymore. From now on, I will see what alternatives I have with his condition, and not just blindly accept any drugs to take care of him. The psychotropic drug they wanted to give him had not been this successful this quickly. I know with this comment I will be opening a can of worms, but I do believe I choose the right approach with him, and his doctor certainly approve it and supported my decision. This is very important for the care of my child, that me and his doctor are on a same page, since we want the best for my little boy.
What saddens me is that his pediatrician told me that they always have to offer regular medicine, and unless the parent request alternative approach, they need to insist on traditional medicine. She, as well believed that he would be better off trying natural medicine first.
I worked in the medical field for years, and I was a firm supporter of modern medicine, and to a degree I am still a believer. I never taught that I would put herbs before modern medicine. My views had changed, and I am glad that I became more open-minded.
