The thing is, too, from a purely anecdotal stand point – based upon nothing but my observations of my own son, my friends’ and clients’ children – everything fits. We clean up the gut flora, we improve the children, globally.
I had another kick in the pants from Alex’s gut bugs recently. As I noted in a recent post, Alex’s dermotillomania (compulsive skin scratching and picking) flared up horribly around the start of the year. For many years now he’s picked the skin off his fingers, but by February he was gouging his own skin off – his back and chest looked like he’d been lashed, and his ears looked like they’d been through a meat grinder. I tried the standard treatment for dermotillomania – Prozac – and it did absolutely nothing. In fact, it might have made things worse.
