I put Kyle on some supplements that were specialized for him, about a month ago and I was wondering how fast and what results you saw with the supplemnets your kids have taken. Did they seem to get better faster when they got sick, or did they seem healthier and get sick less? I was just curious what you all have noticed. Thanks!

With Kayla, we noticed an improvement in alertness and development within a week. This was both with starting MSB+ and also with switching her to a gluten/dairy restricted diet. When I started her on MSB+ I made a point of not telling my husband so he could be an impartial observer. When I started Kayla on a gluten/dairy restricted diet, I mentioned it to her teachers, but said it was to help her poops. Surprisingly, since she started the gluten/dairy restricted diet, her teachers immediately noticed an improvement in her attention and participation in class activities. It helps to have an impartial observer, because sometimes I wonder if I'm really seeing an improvement or if it's just wishful thinking!

Incidentally, I've never really noticed a difference as far as health, just cognitive. Kayla's never been that sick (until she started school!!!!), but then again we started MSB+ when she was only 3 months.

We really started to see some changes in J after about two weeks on MSB+. Maybe it's coincidental, maybe not, but it can't HURT her. She escaped the bug both her brother and sister had and actually hasn't been sick since we put her on it over a month ago.

Her therapists remarked without knowing we started using them that she's made some huge improvements in the past few weeks.

I have to call today and see if MSB+ is gluten free, if so, I think we'll start E on it too.

Thanks for the info! Kyle got a cold the other day and he seems to be fighting it off on his own, usually he is put on antibiotics m ost of the time... hopefully it will totally clear up soon. I guess time will tell if its the supplemnets. So far it looks good so I am definatley going to continue. You had said that you saw some cognitive improvments, what things did you notice? Verbalizing more,interacting more? That is awsome! I just wonder if I should keep him on these supplements or if I should go with something like nutrivene or MSB+ since there are so many people on them I feel like I have more feedback about them. Oh I worry so much on what is best and I know I should probably stick to one thing for awhile. Thanks again!
