How I love homeopathy! It should be called hopeopathy :) Caleb's anxiety was again getting out of control. The only thing that seemed to help was the supplement GABA, 1000mg at a time (twice daily). I'm glad it helps, but must we rely on this everyday now? Low and behold, Caleb's constitutional remedy lycopodium finally helped a bit (only now in a larger dose of 200c). It made his return to school after the holidays somewhat bearable. No one sent me notes about his behavior....so that's a positive thing :)
The reason I knew to try GABA was because GABA often balances excitotoxins in the brain from excess glutamates. Some glutamate sources are calcium and folic acid, many foods like wheat and milk, and I'm sure others. For Caleb, we had been trying Calcium for a while, and it had seemed to help at first. Then we hit the wall..... Instead it raised his glutamates (or so I supposed) and made GABA necessary. He's extremely good on GABA, but just quiet & not as fiesty (which I like him to defend himself and have opinions...just in smaller doses). Caleb has needed folic acid before for clearer speech, but it also often ends up fluctuating his body to excitotoxin mode. For him, we see "screaminess" over every little thing, and weeping over nothing. He also gets a bit OCD. Anyhow.....lycopodium has helped for these past few days. Thank you Lord for that!
