Have any of you heard of this? http://www.systemicformulas.com/
A chiropractor that I take my son to uses these formulas to detox my son's system. More specifically, he uses something called "nutrascan" to test his urine and saliva for chemicals, bacterias, fungi, mold, viruses, pesticides, dyes..etc and then he uses systemic formulas to pull that stuff out.
My son has severe behavior problems...and instead of risking that his liver will be toast when he is 40 because of years of psychotropic use (he's on risperdal)...I decided to try alternative meds. This doctor found all kinds of stuff in his system...including known neuro toxins.
Just a little testimony....since my son has been on this regime the past 3 months (and he is only on some of the supplements because I could not afford all of them), he has not been sick once. This was a kid that ALWAYS had a snotty nose, cough, sore throat, fever, whatever....

Nativehealer, systemic formulas ARE made from herbs.
Renerian, he's only been on these supplements about 3-4 months. I haven't had any blood work yet because I haven't been able to get insurance...however we're covered starting January 1 and will be getting him checked then. He is actually on a liver detox formula with liver support.
I was sure that someone would have heard of these supplements.

My son was having ticks and small seizures at 9 months old and I went to several doctors with no luck. For some reason, my son would not have his episodes in the doctors' office and the doctors would not keep him for observation.
I decided to do my own research. I found a nutritionist friend who worked with both the herbal supplements systemic formulas and standard process. It is a long story that includes implementing a partial ketogenic diet, but after chelation therapy (using the systembic formulas) my son showed no signs of ANY ticks or seizures after that.
I have since been using systemic formulas through an authorized practitioner to also help with my son's chronic colds, ear infection and general malaise with MUCH success.
I know the medical community does not look to supplements as a viable option for many reasons. The main reason is that it just has not been studied the same way we study about symptom/diagnosis/treatment. There are cases of where people have been injured using these supplements, but in many of those cases (that are cited) it is when a patient was not using the supplement as directed.
The same with drugs, supplements are powerful and can only be used as directed. However (whole food) supplements are from sources that are from the earth, which means there are little side effects, as they were not manufactured using synthetic materials...as drug often are. So the side effects, unless grossly misused, are minimal.
Keep in mind that the drugs supported by the medical field also tout many side effects and even death, so it is 6 of one; half dozen of the other.
I would rather treat my sons whole body and take care of the root of the problem than give him something to mask a symptom. It takes longer and it requires change in environment and diet as well, but it is worth it.
Keep up the quest. There is a lot of help for you online, should you continue to pursue alternative medicine. Over 40% of the American population started using alternative medicine last year. If more of us try it, not only will our children get better, but we will create a demand for more of a holistic approach to medicine...and have the best of both worlds, so it is a win win situation.
