The Three Miracles (aka “How It Came About”)
If you are browsing this sight, it is most likely because you want to know either if this can help a child you love and care about, or because as a medical professional, you want to know what is going on with the children you see who are doing something unheard of – recovering and getting better.

It took three separate miracles. The first were a set of 32 week, 4 pound twins who were caught up to their full-term peers at four months actual / two months adjusted. The second was a 9-month old twelve pound little boy whose mother was told he was going to spend the rest of his life in a wheel chair, who gained ten pounds in ten weeks, and then started walking. And lastly, there was a 9-year old girl, born as a 26-week preemie weighing one pound, eleven ounces, who is now standing straight and tall.

You can learn about these incidents on the video lecture series, or you can download the presentation. At the end of the day, when you correct the micronutrient deficiencies identified in the Textbook of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition, children recover.

This is the repeatable miracle of Science. And while you might be embarrassed because a medical professional did not put the pieces together, get over it, because it is true, and most importantly, it works.
