Caitlyn had a "normal" birth and first couple of months of life. However, at three months old she had her first seizure. We were scared. Then the second, and third, we were horrified. Would my daughter ever be able to swim or drive a car?
She soon began the medication. From three months to six months she barely gained any weight, the medication caused profuse vomiting. Not to mention the lethargy. Suddenly my vibrant, exciting daughter was replaced with a sickly, emotionless lump. When the doctors cut her dose in half because of probable liver damage, we knew we had to do something, but what?
After all of this time, after all of those tests, we still didn't even have a name for her condition. Her neurologist said he couldn't call it epilepsy until the seizures had been active for a number of years. We were so lost, and felt as if we were drowning.
Our neighbor then suggested that we take her to an Upper Cervical Chiropractor. My wife and I were very skeptical, to say the least. However, for some reason we went. He explained everything he was going to do and why. He also insisted that my wife and I begin care. He said, if this care is good enough for your daughter, it is good enough for you too!
The care went well, and we slowly began weaning her off of her medication. By nine months old, my daughter was both seizure-free and medication-free! Today, I have a beautiful and wonderful daughter who is the epitome of health. The best part is that she has no memory of those days! I also have two more perfectly healthy daughters that have been raised raised with Upper Cervical care given by their own father.
