Month 7 and 8 Update.
The good news is that I’ve had some symptom flares starting at around 6.5 months, indicating that neuro healing may have started for me. This is right on time when the founder, Phil, mentioned it would (between 6 and 9 months it will START). Though I haven’t had improvements since the 100 days (month 3-4)
Neuro healing is when the nerves start to regenerate. So if they have been damaged from viruses, bacteria, lyme, mold, whatever, they start to regenerate. This can include them dying and coming back fully renewed or just parts of them may die and then renew. So it can cause disruptions in their purpose. (symptom flares)
In my case I’ve had stomach issues, malaise (especially with less sleep), fatigue, random knee inflammation, some rare random mood shifts (happy, anxiety, depressed, high energy).. so definitely enough to know something is happening.
This process can last for up to 10 months.. So basically up through 1.5 years after stem cells healing can occur.
Unfortunately its not looking likely that I’ll be fully better by the time our baby arrives in June, but I’m sure hoping for some kind of improvements before then (which could be possible!). I’m worried about this because everyone continues to tell me how little sleep parents get, and I get severe malaise (general pain) with any less than 8 full hours of sleep. I really don’t want having a baby to be about me.
Anyway, thanks for all your support so far. Hoping 2018 provides even more healing! Best wishes!
