Connor’s Current Supplement Program

Most Current Protocol  

7 months old-

After running labs and re-muscle testing him with Autonomic Response Testing

(see http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/01/09/The-Absolute-Best-Muscle-Testing-System-I-Know-of.aspx   and   http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/02/27/what-to-do-when-doctors-and-naturopaths-fail-you.aspx)

This is Connor’s protocol. ( New ones in BOLD)

Nutrivene-D daily- dosed by weight

Designs for Health Mito PQQ – 1/3 capsule/ day ( taken separate from the Nutrivene D)

PSC Embryonic Plant Stem Cell Remedies- Ash, Beech, Black Currant, Crab Apple, Dandiion, Caraway, Fig, Linden Tree, Rosemary, White Birch Flower Male Catkins.  I use Arresto Prevento and Broncho Modulato as needed.

Designs for Health Neuro Mag (Magnesium threonate- able to transport magnesium to brain cells)

Pekana Kelan– to treat the OHS scar

Premier Research Labs Green Tea ND 1/8 tsp with Mito PQQ

Neurobiologix Neuro Immune Stabilizer (transdermal folate, B12, B6 and Vit D cream) and Transdermal Glutathione.  

Designs for Health GPC Liquid- am going to increase dose to 1200 mg/ day

“Connor’s Blend” (doTERRA DDR Prime and Citrus Bliss) applied to feet and spine am and pm

Professional Complementary Health Formulas- Brain Enhancement Liquescence (1/3 dropper 3 times a day)

Safe Care Rx- Children’s Growth and Development 1 spray- 3 times a day

Discontinued- Infant DHA (!) and Probiotics

4 months old- added Designs for Health Mito PQQ- 1/3 capsule, once a day- to help support mitochondrial health and support heart after Open Heart Surgery (AVSD repair.)

Age 10-12 weeks- based on some labs I ran, his magnesium is low.  I am adding Senseable Supplements MgCl drops 5 drops 2 times a day to his Nutrivene- D bottles.  I will also start Designs For Health MagneGel- a transdermal magnesium gel that will raise his intracellular levels of magnesium faster than oral.

Added PSC Broncho Modulato 10 drops 3-6 times a day and PSC Hornbeam 3 drops, 3 times a day.  My husband brought home a cold with a cough, and Connor started getting stuffy.  This is concerning because of the Heart Defect.  The Broncho Modulato provides a wide variety of support to the lungs, and will help prevent the cold from settling in the lungs.  If he gets more symptomatic, I will do the dose hourly.  Hornbeam is a great decongestant.

We are continuing to diffuse doTERRA Breathe with Arbor Vitae added.  I have periodically been applying diluted On Guard and Breathe to Connor’s feet as well.  I REALLY want to make sure he does not get sick.  At over 3 months old, with a Complete AV Canal, (see http://dsdaytoday.blogspot.com/2011/04/heart-down-syndrome.html) he still has not gone into heart failure, and is continuing to gain weight.  I attribute this minor miracle to chiropractic, and his supplement protocol. 🙂

Added Designs for Health GPC (glycerophosphocholine) is a supportive nutrient for the brain, kidneys, muscles, testes and other organs, and is a building block for cell membrane phospholipids. Without the presence of this nutrient in the brain, we could not think, sleep or remember. – See more at: http://catalog.designsforhealth.com/GPC-Liquid-2oz?sc=2&category=3789#sthash.Qqs6ORJA.dpuf

Age 8 weeks PSC Beech 1-2 drops, 3 times a day- for growth, and for genetic support with Ds especially. Also supports immunoglobulins. Fig 1 X 3 (1 drop- 3 times a day in pumped breast milk) White Birch Flower Male Catkins 1 X 3 Caraway (1:10) 1-3 drops a day- based on bowel- better for gas/ colic…bipolar/biphasic for constipation and diarrhea *Ash 1 X 3- to support AVSD and adrenals * Rosemary and Maize 1X3 ( I added these back because I want the rosemary for the cognitive and nervous system supports- supports myelin…added maize because it helps with heart tissue) Next up- dogwood and horsetail – to see if we can keep him of Lasix while buying time before the surgery to correct the heart defects. Note- I stopped Arresto Prevento after talking to the PSC guru- we both have found that AP is better for dealing with viruses after the onset of symptoms, versus preventatively. So we are saving it for when we need it- he is getting immune support also from other PSCs in the protocol. Supplements Nutrivene –D 1/8 tsp per day Vit D 500 IU 1 drop every other day Nordic Naturals Infant DHA ½ ml 1-2 times a day will need to increase dose when he hits 11 pounds, which will be soon! J doTERRA Equal parts DDR prime and Citrus Bliss with FCO (fractionated coconut oil) applied to bottom of feet 2 times daily. On Guard diffused during the day, Breathe at night sometimes adding Arbor Vitae D/C lemon and cardamom as I suspected he was getting a rash from it- even diluted. Will add back one at a time to see- my suspicion is lemon. Age 6 weeks- 7 weeks PSC *Beech 1-2 drops, 3 times a day- for growth, and for genetic support with Ds especially. Also supports immunoglobulins. Fig 1 X 3 (1 drop- 3 times a day in pumped breast milk) White Birch Flower Male Catkins 1 X 3 *Caraway (1:10) 1-3 drops a day- based on bowel- better for gas/ colic…bipolar/biphasic for constipation and diarrhea D/C Arresto Prevento, Crab Apple, Maize, and Rosemary Supplements Nutrivene –D 1/8 tsp per day Vit D 500 IU 1 drop every other day Nordic Naturals Infant DHA ½ ml 1-2 times a day doTERRA Equal parts DDR prime and Citrus Bliss with FCO (fractionated coconut oil) applied to bottom of feet 2 times daily.
