The Power and Mystery of Persistence
April 10, 2012 1 Comment
Every so often observations about nature and our human biology come in a way that just requires we accept before we understand. I wish I could more fully explain the following story sent to me by parents who insisted and persisted in the use of GcMAF past the point where the levels of nagalase (a viral produced enzyme which digests the Vitamin D transporter protein also known as GcMAF) activity normalized. Would they have seen the same results if they stopped weeks earlier? There is no way to be certain but I continue to hear stories where GcMAF was restarted after having been stopped and new benefits are observed, so it is likely the results were the effect of continued GcMAF therapy. The science remains to be worked out more fully, but the results are impressive. Here is their story in their words.
Dear Dr. Bradstreet,
Our boy is finally having the language breakthrough with GcMAF that we’ve been hoping for! After about 26 injections, he spiked a fever of nearly 105 F, which lasted for about 24 hours. The next day, he broke out with herpes sores all around his mouth, and pimples on his chin. A few days later, he had a very fine red pimply rash all over his back.
At the end of his first day back at school, he ran up to me and said, “Mom, guess what? I had a great day at school today. I was a good boy so I got to watch a movie, Puss-in-Boots, and I swinged on the swings with Mr. P, and I played a game on the iPad, and I drawed a picture with green.”
Wow!! This is from a kid who has never been conversational. He is mostly a functional scripter, i.e., he has memorized whole phrases or sentences that he uses appropriately to get his needs met. Usually, when I ask him what he did at school, he responds with “I played on the computer.” Before, he did not want to tell me about his day, and he didn’t have the ability to tell me about the various things he did.
We are so excited to see his conversational language emerging. His teacher has confirmed that she’s seeing this as well, and I think she’s as excited as we are. She also noted that he is more social, that he won’t stop kissing the girls, and the neurotypical boys on the playground are fighting over who gets to be his peer buddy for the day!
Yesterday, he came up to me and said, “I think you need to give me a shot.” I wonder if he knows that the injections are helping?
I was really undecided as to whether to continue the injections after 16 weeks when his Nagalase levels fell into the reference range. I am so glad we did! I will keep you updated with any more changes as we continue.
Thank you so much!
