"Intravenous Immunoglobulin (IVIg) is a solution of highly purified immunoglobulin G, derived from large pools of human plasma that contain antibodies against a broad spectrum of bacterial and viral agents. This solution is delivered intravenously and is used primarily to treat three categories of illnesses: immunodeficiencies, autoimmune neuromuscular disorders, and certain rheumatologic conditions."
IVIG is VERY expensive and very rarely covered entirely by insurance. I have heard that out of pocket quotes often exceed $5000 even for those who HAVE insurance coverage for some of it! And most people require IVIG multiple times. Sure makes the camel milk look cheap, doesn't it?
Camel milk is anti-bacterial and anti-viral. It's a wonder why we get such great results when you combine all these traits in one power packed serving! It MUST be raw to get these benefits!
Speaking of results....lets talk about my kids. We've been on the camel milk for 24 days as of today. We were originally only using half of the recommended dose with each child daily and seeing a wide variety of improvements. I want to know it's full potential though, so we are increasing. I started increasing two days ago and we are now on a pint and a half a day, between the two of them. Two pints would be about the recommended dose, give or take a few ounces. It certainly isn't hard to get in them, they love it! Yeay for that! I don't have to squirt it, pop it open, mix it or pour it into them!! And they enjoy it, something I gain pleasure in! Our kids are troopers, they take concoctions of the nastiest tasting stuff on earth without a flinch! So a treatment they love?! Sign me up!!
I just can't get over the changes with Grayson! If you read my earlier entries about his aggression, his tics, his negativity, his inconsistencies.....itching, head swattting, bloating, sleep disturbances, severely emotional outbursts, my goodness, life was never dull around here!! He was so volatile I wouldn't even sign him up for activities. I was literally afraid of his behaviors, would he tantrum and cry uncontrollably, because he doesn't want to do something; would he freak out from lack of confidence; would he just completely resist participation? We tried a few things like soccer and ice skating. He zoned out on the field in soccer and he refused participation with ice skating. I gave up and I am not a giving up sort of mom, but he had my endurance beat, I just couldn't fight another fight, nor was it healthy.
Fast forward to today, these are the traits I see in Grayson on a CONSISTENT basis now and yes, this is SINCE the milk!!
- Amazing confidence! He will try anything and although he hates failure (not a bad thing) he isnt' freaking out or hitting himself in the head over it. He picks himself up (figruatively speaking) dusts himself off and moves on.
- We've signed him up for guitar lessons and I am so impressed with him! He is learning very fast, he is willing to attempt anything we ask him to try, he doesn't fight me when I ask him to practice (although it's in short spurts, lol, hey whatever works). He is willing to "perform" the things he learns without hesitation.
- He is happy every day, VERY happy and not the overly giddy kind of yeasty happiness, but a real genuine happiness. Coming from the deep, dark caves of anger that Clostridia brings, this is a HUGE and very welcome change. There was nothing worse than watching our 5 year old wake up angry at the world, his pajamas too tight, clothes bothering him, shoes won't go on right, chair isn't even, everything was too something and the reaction was far beyond extreme, it was frightening. I am so so so SO relieved to see this change so consistently!
- He's interested in playing with Gavin who has a very challenging personality, but he makes it work most days lately. There is often a lot of fighting, because Grayson is so controlling, but he has been slowly opening up to listening to Gavin (when I request him to do so). In the past, he would stomp off, crossing his arms, yelling that he wanted to "be alone". Now he is listening to me calmly and trying whatever I suggest. Wow!
- His flexibility is amazing. We haven't had any issues with transition at all.
- Consistency - did I mention this AGAIN? HAHAHA In the past we have called him Jekyll and Hyde, because from one moment to the next, he would flip from happy to emotional, then angry, then giddy (too happy), it was an exhausting roller coaster ride to parent him. He's consistent, he's happy, he's flexible and compliant. This is what normal is all about!!
Gavin is flourishing too, as you have probably read in previous entries about the camel milk. He's just a fire cracker! He's affectionate and powerful at once. He's our little daredevil with control, loves to make people laugh, but is a lovey too. He's kept all of his gains, but I notice that with him, when I increase the milk, we get a period of what resembles die-off. His stools change, his temperament becomes less tolerant, and he becomes excessively hyper temporarily. I am taking this to mean that he needs the increase and that we will need to continue to increase until this subsides. Keep in mind that he has a virulent parasite and I am hoping the milk is doing something about that! I would expect some die-off with anything that could be working!
I can't wait to see what more camel milk brings!! If anyone reading this has been on the fence about camel milk, I give you a resounding "TRY IT!" Don't let this opportunity pass you by, you may never know what real healing is until you give it a shot! My husband and I are even considering using it for ourselves, if we decide to stop it for the kids (as in done healing). It's THAT phenomenal!
