Connections with a holistic mama of a child with Job’s syndrome


I’ve been thankful that through this blog, I’ve “met” many other like-minded and holistic moms, and am thankful for the support that I’ve received during difficult times, as well as the sharing of information amongst us all.

I’m particularly excited that I have recently connected with a like-minded mom of a 12 year old boy, who was recently diagnosed with Job’s syndrome (Hyper IgE Syndrome). She has an amazing integrated doctor (and integrated pediatricians) who are treating her son, as well as a wonderful homeopath. I’m thrilled, thrilled, thrilled beyond belief to have met her, as prior to this, I haven’t found any other individuals or parents of individuals with this diagnosis who is treating this condition holistically.  Now, I have someone who I can share notes with!  We had a Skype date today, and she shared information about how her integrated doctors and homeopath are treating her son.

I was absolutely thrilled to find out that her son is not on prophylactic antibiotics as I have not found anyone else who has Job’s syndrome who is not on prophylactic antibiotics. I feel less alone (and less crazy) knowing that someone else is approaching Job’s syndrome in a holistic way (and has been finding that the holistic and integrative approach to be an effective one).

Yay, yay, yay!!!!!

I am also happy to know that there are integrated doctors out there in the world (they are not quite yet here in the small city of 200,000 where we live), but it’s great to know that they are out there.
