No! With the weakened immune system, there's no reason to add more illness to the body. Are immunologist absolutely forbids it.

No, you are not crazy! I've only had luck with an immunologist, naturopath, and acupuncture. High protein, high fat, low carb help. So does taking electrolytes. I use a Nuun tablet in my water every morning. Ultima is another good brand. Best wishes to you!
I think support for the sibs is really important. My daughter was actually subconsciously mad at her brother for abandoning her in episode. They are now playing together again. She does have one toe out the door and gets really upset if he breaks his diet in fear of another.
We have not been to Mayo Clinic. We've done everything here in Dallas. Our doctors have consulted with Drs at Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, and Stanford. It's such a rare condition that my son was the first diagnosis at our Children's hospital. We are lucky that our pediatrician is so proactive.
My son had some neurological issues of not being able to write or jump after a 4 month episode. Our neurologist suggested art therapy, tennis, and swimming because it uses both sides of the brain. It's been a month and he can write his name and made a Fathers Day card. We are also doing some physical therapy. He's not jumping yet but definitely bouncing.
Triplets! You are a super hero! I have 4. My kids are 7, 9, 13, and 17. My oldest has ADHD, diagnosed at 7, been processed food and low sugar ever since., Luckily, we've got experience with the run around of diagnosis. Yes, when our son first started sleeping 15 hours, he'd be awake from 1-5 am. I'd get up with him and feed him as much as I could and the wake up at 6 to get the rest of the kids to school. I think it was hardest on my 9 year old. She's very close to her brother and he'd be asleep when she left for school, got home, and went to bed. She really missed him and really shut down. I have them in art therapy together now because by the time he was out of episode, she was mad at him and felt abandoned. The older kids were concerned and had a better grasp of what was going on. It's definitely affected the whole family. I think in general we are closer now. My oldest had planned to go out of state to college and now he wants to stay closer to home.
Yes. He's only 7 so he describes it was "things don't make sense." "Sometimes everything looks blurry." Cognitively, he could be very alert and do math with me and take a test and get 100. The next day, he'd have zero recollection of the lesson. He also wasn't able to write for about a month. The neurologist told us to get him swimming and playing tennis. We did and it worked.
