My middle son had a severe case of strep throat a few weeks ago. Took him to the doctor and he received antibiotics. He has now been diagnosed with "Serum Sickness".
Basically, his body is still fighting the antibiotics that were put in his system weeks ago. He has been breaking out in hives, has severe stomach pain, inflammation and pain in the joints (similar to arthritis from what I've read), and lethargy. He has been so pitiful. It could take up to a month for him to be back to regular health. He will never be able to take that family of antibiotics again as it could result in Anaphylactic shock.
He has been waking up every morning holding his stomach, walking slowly, and just miserable. Last night I did a modified raindrop therapy on him using:
#oregano : contains strong immune-enhancing and antioxidant properties and supports the respiratory system
#thyme : one of the strongest antioxidants known
#basil : useful for fatigued or aching muscles
#fennel : stimulating to the circulatory, glandular, respiratory, and digestive systems
#copaiba : aid digestion and support the body's natural response to injury or irritation
This morning? NOT ONE COMPLAINT! Regular energy and happily went to school. Even though we've been using #YoungLiving EOs for a few years now, I am TOTALLY AMAZED!
