Last July my 3yo had a UTI. I finally caved in and gave ABX when I felt like it was not going to resolve on its own. I dragged my feet 3 weeks on giving the ABX...watching her carefully. I was not really *sure* she had a full blown infection given her symptoms would come and go. One morning, I was finally convinced that she had a full blown UTI and I gave the medicine. Then a couple weeks later her urine really started to smell bad again, and look cloudy. Infection again. Round 2 of ABX. THis time I gave the straight away given I was worried. Two weeks after the end of the second round of ABX, her urine started smelling bad again, looked cloudy..and she had urgency...blah, blah, blah. SO we moved onto round THREE of the ABX. :toomuch: (just for Rhea) (We did culture her urine every time...and it grew out E coli three times.) Of course, I very gently reminded her about wiping, encouraged water ...and really could not find a mechanical reason for her getting UTI's all the sudden, three times in a row. I supported her with vitmains and a great immune supporting herbal tincture form out Naturopath who is also an MD. But of course, after 3 infections that did not clear I Started to get worried. So I FINALLY tapped on my worries the last day of her antibiotics. Even though I am so worried the ABX are going to ruin her gut flora... ET I am so worried there is something big wrong with A... Even though I feel helpless and I don't know what to do to help her... Even though I feel like I am a bad mom for giving her ABX... Even though I am so sick of taking her to the Doctor..because it is NOT HELPING. Even though I am angry that I can't fix this.. Even though I hate that everyone expects me to take her to MD's to fix a UTI...and I don't want to... Even though I am afraid A is not strong enough to deal with all of this. Then I tapped for her Even though I have to run to the toilet because I am afraid I am going to pee in my pants... ET my pee smells really bad... ET I have an issue with E coli right now in my Urinary Tract...(I did 4 rounds of this one...as obviously her body had some sort of issue with E Coli..) I also tapped on the medicine... May all of the goodness from this yummy tasting medicine do its work in my body and all the toxicity of this medicine be eliminated safely out of my body"(I did 4 rounds on this...) I also tapped"I forgive myself and anyone else who may have contributed in any way to this UTI. I know my body can function perfectly in removing the e coli from my urinary tract. I tapped for about 15 minutes total I think. Then Funny enough...I watched the news that night. I NEVER EVER EVER watch the news. We have not watched TV for 6 years or so. And there was a story on the same ABX that my dd was taking. That there was something wrong with them...I flipped off the TV and tapped. "Even though it freaking figures that the medicine I reluctantly gave my daughter is on the news and tainted...even though I freaking hate pharmaceutical companies...I choose to know my daughter is safe and capable of all challenges that she encounters" Even though I HATE kids liquid antibiotics with all the crap and preservatives in them... Then for Aidra. "Even though there might be some issue with my yummy medicine..." ET the medicine might have some stuff that might be a challenge for my body, I choose to know that the goodness of the medicine will be used by my body as needed and any toxicity in the medicine will be passed safely from my body..." Her urine sample 5 days after she finished her third round of antibiotics was perfectly clear for the first time in months. She has been clear for two months. I really know in my knower like the tapping shifted it. Um, message to self :announce: don't wait so long to tap next time.
