began to speak and write.
Updated: Jul 15, 2019
Before treatment, the child wouldn't speak unless asked, struggled with addressed speech, and was hypersensitive to his surroundings.
Afterwards, he began to speak on his own, began to understand addressed speech and doesn't struggle with being hypersensitive.
Signs and symptoms prior to treatment:
The child did not speak, only if he asked. Stimming was present, but in cases when was bored, did not know how to communicate to other children, and observed them from distance. He was often upset that he did not know how to communicate. He understood instructions, but did not always follow them, and had hypersensitivity (covered his ears).
The child had elevated IgG to rubella virus, CMV, VZV, and H. pylori as well as thrombocytosis, lymphocytosis, neutropenia, and decreased hematocrit.
Changes after the 1st cycle:
He became more lively, calmer, more curious, more diligent, and smarter.
Changes after the 3nd cycle:
He covers his ears less. Learned how to write letters himself without circling but looking at the sample. Sometimes stimming becomes a bit more intense, but other time stimming ceases completely.
Changes after the 4th cycle:
Began to repeat letters, his memory improved, and understanding of addressed speech improved.
Changes after the 6th cycle:
He continues to consistently improve, where several new words have appeared and he uses them more often and as needed.
By the end of the 6th cycle, the levels of antibodies to all detected viruses were decreased. Neutropenia and lymphocytosis were still present, and all other red and white blood cell counts were within reference ranges.
Parents decided to have a break in the treatment, but they plan to start it again soon.
