Mold Exacerbating Spastic Diplegia?
Dear Ted, I have been reading your advice on the internet with great interest. Our son is aged 2 and has spastic diplegia (Little's Disease). The MRI has shown nothing out of the ordinary in his brain and he is a bright boy with full use of his upper body and intellect. I have started to wonder if he has a metabolic condition. This morning I was breastfeeding him and kept getting a whiff of a smell on his breath which I think is acetone but I am not sure. I have asked our doctor if we can get blood, urine and breath tests done as soon as possible so that we can try to diagnose what is happening. I have seen that you talk about neurotoxins. As I have been plagued by a persistent fungal infection of the feet which came on when I was pregnant with my first child (aged 5) and has persisted ever since. Also we live in an unhealthy house which has all kinds of molds which I understand create neurotoxins. I would love to move from here for that reason but we are strapped financially.
I have been reading through your recommendations for diet and supplements. I still breastfeed Archie and that is his main food source. If I follow your recommendations myself will this get into his body by my breastmilk? Or should I be getting Archie to take the foods and supplements himself? I am not sure how to put this request onto the website but am happy for you to paste it there so that it and your response may help others.
Thank you so very much.
