An occupational therapist, a nutritionist, and a chiropractic neurologist walk into a bar...
It's been a wild few weeks, getting back into town from our visit to Buffalo and getting life set up here at home. I've been seeing the functional neurologist twice a week. One day a week I see the Occupational Therapist (OT), and one day a week I see the OT, the nutritionist, and the neurologist.
The OT checks my neuro function through different tests and adjusts or changes my exercises as needed. The nutritionist has me on an anti-allergy diet, which is similar to paleo, but more limited. I am off sugar and caffeine, and only eating meats, veggies, and some fruits. I'm on a gut repair drink and various supplements to get my body in good shape for all the other work I'm doing. The neurologist does more neuro exams, chiropractic adjustments as necessary, and oversees my care.
It's a lot of work preparing food all day, taking the right supplements at the right times, and doing all my OT exercises, but I feel confident we are on the right path. There are little changes that I barely notice, but they are there.
Please pray for my endurance during this time. With homeschooling, taking care of the household, and trying to get well it can be a little overwhelming for me. I have an amazing support system and such hope that I will be well at the end of this!
