It’ll be 3 weeks since Adahlias last transfusion on this coming Thursday. Her Hb was 10.0. We needed to check it because we are headed to visit some grandparents (I’ll be at a seminar while she’ll be frolicking in the AZ sun) and I wanted to be sure she’d be safe to fly in the 3-4 week post-transfusion range.
This is great news. Unprecedented? No, she did almost exactly the same thing in February. But, I’m encouraged.
Since adjusting her diet, she no longer needs the Chinese and auyervedic herbs to fight subclinical infection. Her herbs are now all blood-builders.
“Grown-up herbs,” my mentor noted, the sort of herbs women commonly are prescribed to rebuild themselves. Not the sort of herbs you typically give to a child.
She’s been on them for approximately a month now.
And then going through some notes, I realized that many of the times when Adahlia has retic’d (i.e., made baby red blood cells, albeit only some and not enough to negate the need for transfusion) I had been heavily using peppermint oil.
Now that her belly is healing (not perfect yet, but healing), she’s no longer fighting infection, and her body is requesting the blood building herbs, maybe it is time to bring the peppermint oil back out.
The body is wise. It is not going to invest energy in rebuilding a compromised system. But if the system is overhauled… Integrity restored…
Perhaps now that she’s digesting better and is stronger, her body will be ready to “keep her here” by making her own blood.
That’s what it’s saying anyway, with the request for these herbs.
And that’s not all.
I’ve been doing Reiki with her since she was in the womb. Sometimes she’d take the energy, and other times, it didn’t seem to do anything.
She takes it now. It’s very strong. And I’ve also been stimulating two acupuncture points that she is especially receptive to. She melts for shonishin (Japanese acupressure) and reiki at these points. I have even found her stimulating those points herself by gently tapping herself with the tip of a pen at these points.
It was astounding.
So it’s progress. It’s possible.
Please continue sending prayers and love. Now is the time we leave these troubles behind.
