When I think back on what life was like before Brain Balance, it’s certainly painful to remember.
Carson was difficult as a baby, colicky, and always upset. As he continued through toddlerhood, his temper grew and his anger became uncontrollable. Carson’s coping mechanisms including hitting, throwing, and violent verbal outbursts. I knew something wasn’t right, so I sought help with a local psychologist. After eight long and frustrating months of awkward doctor’s appointments, Carson’s behavior only worsened and there were no answers. My husband and I finally met with a psychiatrist who diagnosed Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder and prescribed medication. I hesitantly took the prescription from the doctor and it sat on the kitchen counter for two months. I didn’t want my child on medication, but Carson’s rage and defiance became too much to handle. I finally filled the prescription and gave Carson half of the prescribed dose. The response was awful. It caused Carson to become lethargic and fall asleep. This was not what I wanted for my child and it was not helping him with his underlying behavior and social issues. I was discouraged, my marriage was suffering. I felt like I had nowhere else to go.
Then I found Brain Balance. We had an assessment done. In Carson’s case, the assessment revealed that he has a sensitivity to egg whites and whey. After removing these two foods from his diet, I was surprised by the dramatic changes in his behavior. But that was just the start. The program has been so powerful, I have no problem traveling down to San Antonio three days a week so he can continue his therapy. It’s working so well. I have my family and my life back. I’m able to take Carson out of the house and out socially to places like restaurants as a family. The changes are significant.
I wouldn’t travel as far as I do unless we were getting results, and we are. Carson is so much better with his behavior and ability to control himself. It’s hard to believe how significant the changes are in a short period of time. It’s also hard to believe that this type of testing uncovered things we needed to know, and without medication, we can see these kinds of positive results.
