Children Started Stuttering Following an Infection
I read on your blog in regards to stuttering after pneumonia in a blogger when he was 8. I have two children and one child started stammering and stuttering after an infection in 2006. Another child of mine started stuttering after she came down with a really bad respiratory infection in spring 2010. Both children stutter for months following an infection. I have read about the calcium homeostasis in relation to stuttering and it being affected by infections, do you know more about this? The three genes identified, is this related?
No, calcium homeostatasis is a minor point. The point is there is viral infection as a result of a bout of infection. If there is genetic explanation for this it is this: immune systems against these form of infection is their weakness. I can get ALS with genetic explanation, but it all boils down to immune system. Therefore in event where stuttering is known, you can take care of this condition in a matter of 1 week to 2 weeks (usually 1 week the longest) by lysine, threonine and some glutamine. It is taken in the usual doses hourly doses for 4 doses and nightly doses for 3 hours. This is continued on for at least 3-4 days. First two days to get it a remission, and the third and fourth day is preventing reinfection. This will get rid of virus and some bacteria that is involved in stuttering. Yes the virus is still alive, in the neural system if they are not then it is typical bacteria in the neural system, although I have not seen that many cases. The lysine dose for adult dose (and you calculated for children's dose based on weight) is 1/2 teaspoon lysine, 1/8 teaspoon of glutamine, 1/3 teaspoon of threonine. This is the minimum that is needed to get a remission, but in case they still have a problem, you can add ascorbic acid and beta glucan on top of it. The ascorbic acid is 1/8 and beta glucan is 1/4 teaspoon but this is given 3 times a day and can be mixed with the lysine, threonine and glutamine, if you want. We based the adult dose for small adult, and weighs about 120 pounds, as basis of beginning calculations. So obviously anyone more than that gets more dose, anyone weighing less than that get less dose. I can't be exact on the dosages, that's the best I can do. The beta glucan will take care of bacteria and virus, and it helps if the person doesn't respond to the usual remedy. There is disinformation regarding beta glucan, in the amount of dosages saying less is more and smaller particle size. The truth is people responds better to large doses and it is dose dependent, ie., the larger doses works better. That's my experience.
Hello, Thank you so very much for your response. I remembered a neurologist who studies PANDAS (pediatric autoimmune disease) which follows strep throat and mycoplasma pneumonia tell me that he sees stuttering in the kids because it surfaces as a tic. He said that the blood brain barrier is open and vitamin D is needed to close it, which is interesting since their vitamin D 25 OH is always low! He told me that he has found through extensive lab testing for ferritan to be low in kids with tics however, average in some kids because it can be thrown into average range because it increases with inflammation so it is falsely normal. Apparently there is a a partial or full genetic mutation for an iron disorder already and the infection eats iron and throws the person into anemia. So I decided to give ferrous glycinate (iron supplement) and within hours the stuttering was decreased 90% I believe that until the virus is gone it eats iron so I added olive leaf extract and monolaurin to keep immune system working against it. I am aware of the aminos below and I am going to add them too!
I am not sure why I did not remember this when spending weeks researching! Thank you!!!
That's good that stuttering is gone 90% if you have vitamin D3 and ferrous gluconate. Most people don't tolerate and go into anemia that is true. I usually prescribe humic acid taken at 1/8 teaspoon a day to resolve the anemia problem, but ferrous gluconate is one of the best supplement to get iron levels up, but it is the mycoplasma and fungus like bacteria that eats iron, virus don't generally do that. Since a fungus and penetrate deep in the bone marrow and interfere with synthesis of blood. Therefore if anemia is a problem and there is fungus or fungus like bacteria (mycobacterium) I might also use lithium chloride 10%, and give 10 drops before sleep. Autoimmune disease is mostly a fungal issues. But people can have a fungus and a virus too. There's to cases so far that that fungus leads to stuttering and cervical dystonia that had that link. So when you take in iron, because they are low, olive leaf extract and coconut oil (monolaurin) helps, but the cases if I have here, needs portulaca oleracea purslane and some others too.
