"Hope for my Angel"
I was reading about your info on adding vitamin d3 with natural progesterone cream and I have some questions. I am also very supportive about "sunshine in a tube"!
This is a bit lengthy but thought you needed to have as much info as possible without writing a novel!!
Okay...My daughter is 34yrs old and is severely mentally and physically disabled. She functions at about a 2-3month old baby level, full care etc. She had a trauma...(accident)... at 5 days old and so I would say that she had a TBI even though way back then (1980) they only checked for a concussion and released her saying that she was fine. However, she started showing signs of not developing normally by 2months old and then by 4months old began having myoclonic jerks..."infantile spasms". I was able to keep her off seizure meds until she was 8yrs old when she was the victim of severe trauma while under the care of someone I trusted. She immediately began having Grand mal seizures and had to end up on depakote. Through the years had to be on different meds and combos of meds but as time went on she started regressing from being very lively, clapping her hands, said "mama", rolled all over the floor, could sit up on her own, ate really well, laughed all the time and was just a very happy little girl even though she was non-ambulatory. My sincere belief is that the seizure meds....NOT THE SEIZURES...caused her to slowly regress to the state she is at now. I have slowly weaned her off tegretol and as of 5 days ago she is no longer on any meds at all. Kinda risky yet I just know in my heart of hearts that she will be better off in the long run. LOTS OF PRAYING!!!!!! I want to use progesterone cream for her and also....after reading about the benefits of Vitamin d3...want to put her on that too. Her seizures are sparatic and has more at her post-menstrual time. I'm not real sure how much progesterone to give her or how often etc. She is very tiny...4'6", 80-85lbs. Also...since the vitamin d cream is not available yet can you suggest any products that are on the market?? I found one by "Now" foods that is a vitamin D3 cream 1000IU per 1/4 teaspoon. It also has vitamin A, E, aloe vera & shea butter in it. Do you know anything about this product? Do you think it would benefit her in order for the progesterone cream to work better? Do you know of any other d3 creams that are available and if so which would you recommend? Just so you know, I use Emerita Pro-gest cream. I just started giving it to her today because I'm sure that any given time that she will probably start having post-menstrual seizures and "med withdrawal seizures". I used aprox. 1/4 teaspoon on bot of her wrists/forearms this morning. I also use it myself for depression and anxiety ...it helps me ALOT!! I am post menapausal. Okay...I guess that's all for now and will look to hear from you about all of this!! Thanks You So Much!! You have a great site...very informative and because of it...I am much better because of using progesterone cream!! I can actually think clear and my nervousness, constant worrying, anxiety and depression are all so much more managable.
Thanks again for your "fantastic" web site!! God Bless You!! Will hope to hear from you soon!! Sincerely, "Hope"
