I don’t think the protocol is working because my child is still not speaking and most of the changes we have seen are negative.
Some parents will over-focus on a minor issue (constipation, bowel movement characteristics, giggling more, waking up earlier, holding hands over ears, moodiness, etc.) and interpret such an event as bad or negative instead of a phase in healing. Parents want their children to talk, but the lack of rapid speech improvement is also not an indication that balancing of the intestinal tract failed. Over-focusing in this manner may cause a parent to miss the bigger picture: this is just one step in the child’s gradual improvement.
