Sam had a “normal” birth and first couple of months of life. However, at three months old he had his first seizure. We were scared. Then the second, and third, we were horrified. Would my son ever be able to swim or drive a car?
He soon began the medication. From three months to six months he barely gained any weight, the medication caused profuse vomiting. Not to mention the lethargy. Suddenly my vibrant, exciting son was replaced with a sickly, emotionless lump. When the doctors cut his dose in half because of probable liver damage, we knew we had to do something, but what?
After all of this time, after all of those tests, we still didn’t even have a name for his condition. His neurologist said he couldn’t call it epilepsy until the seizures had been active for a number of years. We were so lost, and felt as if we were drowning.
Our neighbor then suggested that we take her to a Chiropractor. My wife and I were very skeptical, to say the least. However, for some reason we went. He explained everything he was going to do and why. He also insisted that my wife and I begin care. He said, if this care is good enough for your child, it is good enough for you too!
The care went well, and we slowly began weaning him off of his medication. By nine months old, Sam was both seizure-free and medication-free! Today, I have a talented and wonderful son who is the epitome of health. The best part is that he has no memory of those days! I also have two perfectly healthy daughters and a son that have also been raised with chiropractic care given by their own father.
