    That said, in this case they may have the right idea, but the wrong path. If we go the homeopathic route, especially if we up the dose over time, it could be akin to allergy shots without having to worry about keeping him home long enough for 12 weeks of doc visits.
    True, but I imagine the dosage would be difficult to determine, where as, allergy shots at least has a doctor having input - not that this helps if he is not there to get them.

    As for the placebo thing, I know you know it. There are just thousands of people (some here) who really don't get it and take all kinds of shit that does no good at all besides mental masturbation.

    Just as the body has the ability to screw itself up, it also has the ability to heal itself. And sometimes it needs a little help. The placebo effect is well known and accepted in the medical community. Not that I particularly care what CW medicine thinks, even though I earn my living from it. But I know you've probably tried everything about ten times and it is pretty frustrating. I have a good friend who had extensive surgery three years ago, had most of his soft palate, his tonsils, and his uvula removed. He felt great for about six months and then the symptoms started to creep back...now he is snoring just as badly as he ever was. Oddly, he has had some luck with honey. Maybe it is placebo, who knows? Of course the bad thing about it is that you have to keep it up forever. It just treats the symptoms, doesn't cure the problem.

    Best I can do is start small and up it by a drop or two each week until either he gets better or gets worse. If we go through the entire bottle (or 6 weeks, whichever is shorter,) and nothing changes, we'll chalk it up as a bad placebo.

    Certainly, and while I am not any kind of a medical professional, it seems like many 'illnesses' are brought about by self-inflicted suppression of the immune response be it through poor nutrition, poor sleep, or being 'depressed'/stressed (not clinically but self-diagnosed moping.) A placebo would allievate at least the latter as a more positive attitude due to the new cure in my mind would be effective in boosting said immune response. The whole 'will to live' thing.

    We won't be able to cure it without moving up north or if this allergy shot/ homeopathy works to retrain his body. Even if he has to stay on it, $20/ months is a tenth of $200/ month (with insurance.)

    I honestly think his would be better by going primal, but that's off the table. I'm just doing what I can to find other ways to control his allergies, short of putting him in a allergen controlled bubble.

    Lunch was 2 wings with bleu cheese, spag ala squash, and havarti covered steamed broccoli. Why yes, I am the leftover eater, why do you ask?

    Leftovers are the best. Clint has learned my mantra of "most foods are better the next day".

    I need to clean out the fridge, as the rest of the leftovers are looking kinda old. Granted, I don't think anything would (or can) grow in chile sauce or adobo sauce, but at 3 weeks, it just wouldn't taste good anymore.

    I started doing the same thing last night. Just dumping containers of food down the disposal. Ugh.
