Two steps forward 2 steps back?

Bugger, bugger, bugger! Just as it thought she was on the rapid road to recovery - issues again emerge.

For the last 2-3 weeks, Chescia's allergic responses to food have again arisen. She has had one seizure and her breathing issues re-emerged.

The kinesilogist at Levity Centre (Ros) has helped in clearing foods but she continued to lose weight and was tired all the time.

Chescia's immunoglobulin levels are too high and we are now advised her Chronic Fatigue Syndrome has returned!

She is now seeing another kinesiologist who is treating her breathing and CFS issues at a deeper level (and a number of other girls too) and believes he can assist but it will take months.

The good news is Chescia has enrolled to complete an 18 month nutritonist course at ACNT starting February, so we hope a study focus in an area of value will help her focus.

Onward and upward!


  1. Stephen you need to be charting your daughter's symptoms to where she is in her menstrual cycle. Her fluctuating hormone levels along with possibility of her being premenstrual - exhaustion from vacation and starting school can be tracked. This will give you a better understanding if her low points repeat themselves and if they are tied to hormones.

    I do have charts available and would be willing to share information on this via Skype.


  2. I find myself especially affected by the symptoms I've had since getting Gardasil around my cycle (bleeding.) Thank-you for putting your story out there. IT seems none of us girls know what to expect... so all we can do is learn from each-other until researchers figure something out.
