Back to the grind

We all took a break from chelation for a month, while we were on the Alinia and passing through the new moon.  Grayson had gotten very sick so we stopped our rounds and decided to wait until the parasite meds were done.  Getting back on track is never easy.  Any time we have taken a break from chelation, the first round is R-O-U-G-H!! 

Today is no exception.  We spent all night waking so we are all tired.  We woke at 1am and 5am for our doses and Grayson woke at 2:30am because he wet his bed and then again at 4:30am with a horrible dream, then he got up really early, because he wet his bed AGAIN!  This is par for the course, so we will just go with the flow.  Today will be a lazy, rainy day in front of the tv and napping. 

The kids have been fighting horribly since starting this round.  They have this push/pull relationship while on round.  They do things specifically to prove to one another that they are in charge, things that aren't necessarily nice and it instigates a lot of fighting, but it goes both ways with them.  If it's not one, it's the other, pushing or pulling to get a response. 

We finally have found an adrenal cortex that Grayson tolerates, Enzymathic Therapy's ADRENergize.  We are SO excited, because we have not been able to support his adrenals for the past three years which worried us.  We know a lot of his moodiness is rooted in adrenal fatigue and worried about his adrenals crashing.  The past two weeks, he has been tolerating reasonable amounts of this adrenal cortex and his moods were finally very consistent!  So today, I am increasing it to assist with the round, since chelation stresses the adrenals.  We also recently started L Theanine, an amino acid which assists in cases where histamine is high (causes mood problems and anger too).  Theanine has a calming effect. 

So far I am still feeling good (with the exception of being tired), I also increase my ACE (adrenal cortex extract) while on round. 

Here's to hoping our additional support will ease the transition back into chelation.
