Mom reports some eczema flaring up, and bowel movements becoming more normal formed and brown in color, not as much undigested food.  He is making ticking sounds with his mouth but he is happy and playful. He is really paying attention to me and he did great at his recent doctor check up.

He is saying new words: water, goodbye, owl. He is really playful, playing with other kids(this he has never done), focus is better, sits and watches t.v. with us. Drinking a LOT of water. Not as upset with things being out of place. If he gets upset, he calms down so much easier. He is patient now. BIG appetite.  He is chewing his fingers, toenails and clothes. He is doing this windmill like movement with his arms(new for him). Lots of finger movements(new).  Facial grimacing. He is grasping his genitals a lot. He is playing in his urine. He has been rubbing his genitals on other kids at school. He is refusing to shower. He is  potty training more now. He goes 2-3 hours without any accidents. He wakes up dry in the morning now.

Mouth clicking tic on and off. He is sleeping through the night. No bad dreams. He has even more words: says beeble for bible, more letters of alphabet- F, J, O, B, likes to sing (new for him).

Has some issues of kicking and screaming like when he was 2 years old. Potty training is going well. More sociable and playing more. Coughing in sleep almost like he chokes. He is following the routines at school, listening to me better, following commands will wash and dry hands with instruction. , New songs and words: “oh happy day”, cup, yellow, cupcake, itsy bitsy spider

Chewing finger nails, clothes, smearing poop on the walls, grinding teeth a lot, sucking toes and strong ammonia smell of urine and stool.

September 9th  follow up

His mood is better than ever. Sometimes he gets a little upset when hungry or has belly or head pain. Belly  is not bloated anymore. Bowel movements and urine strong ammonia smell has improved. Took a nap this week which is unlike him. He is not a napper.  Has some detox bumps round his neck and back.

New words: Elmo, counting 1-10, mimic mom, loves to sing “oh happy day”, point to nose, singing “rain, rain, go away”, blows with mouth, says:” Love you”. He did great adjusting to  summer school routine. When he is upset he can get severely  upset but does not last long  like it used to. If upset it lasts maybe 7 min or 30 mins tops.

Mom was very happy at the progress made in 4 months time.
