“His behavior was unsettling and often embarrassing. Anywhere we went, I had to keep constant vigil. He’d be playing so nicely one minute and hitting for no apparent reason the next…uncontrollable rage at times…”
“After a year of problems getting pregnant, our long awaited baby was conceived. It took 2 surgeries and the use of ovulation (egg production) alternatives, but in January 2006, he arrived! 10.5 months later, we welcomed his brother and sister—surprise twins! Up until the twins arrived, Bryce’s infancy was pretty routine.
Upon bringing our twins from the hospital, we noticed a change in our boy. He became very jealous and aggressive toward the new babies. I didn’t think jealousy would be a problem for him since he was only 10.5 months old, but it was! It took some time, but he eventually settled into our “new normal” and began to enjoy his brother and sister. Once they were all old enough to attend Gymboree classes, we did. We were finally able to get out of the house! I began to notice those same aggressive tendencies reappearing in my oldest boy. He would walk up and push over other children even after repeated correction for this behavior. I had to watch him like a hawk to keep other kids from getting thrown down. We didn’t understand why he was acting so aggressively. We thought maybe it was a cause/effect thing. He liked to push because it got a reaction.
Well, needless to say, his behavior was unsettling and often embarrassing. Anywhere we went, I had to keep constant vigil. He’d be playing so nicely one minute and hitting for no apparent reason the next. At the age of 4, when the situation had not improved much and was accompanied by uncontrollable rage at times, food aversions (meal time was never fun), and overall extreme sensitivity, I took him to a naturopath. Through a series of discussions, observations, and tests, she felt he had mild sensory challenges as well as EXTREMELY elevated dopamine and norepinephrine levels. These were the cause of his anxiousness, sadness, and intense fight response. She has seen responses like this (particularly in boys) after the use of ovulation (egg production) alternatives. We were so glad to have an answer—now to find a solution!
She started him on a variety of brain supplements. We were SO impressed with the initial results – better self control, no more unprovoked aggression, and an overall sense of happiness that we were not seeing very often in our sweet boy prior to these supplements. The bad news was, after about 2 months, the supplements lost effectiveness. She switched us to a new supplement—great results for about 2 months, then nothing. Thus began my search for the best brain support supplement out there!
Bryce was starting kindergarten at a 2 day a week cottage school (we home-school the other 3 days), and I was SO nervous! His other supplements were wearing off, and he was heading into a new environment. We prayed—A LOT! Well, the first day was great! The second day, he and another boy (who could also use the help of HCF, if I do say so myself) got into a fight on the playground while playing at recess. My fears had come true…I was desperate. After some reading and internet research, I came across HCF—and just in time, too! We ordered the HCF and began to see results after about 1.5 weeks of use.†* Our sweet boy was back and doing GREAT in school.
Then, the rash appeared – itchy, red rash. We tried everything and had to assume it was the HCF. We took him off of it—the rash cleared up – the aggression, disobedience, anger, fighting…all began again.†* After trying everything to pin the rash to something other than HCF, I had an idea…his multivitamin—the MightyMins! I compared the ingredients in MightyMins to the ingredients in HCF—he was getting WAY too many of the same vitamins!†* I was overdosing him on vitamins, and his body was responding with a rash. I didn’t realize how many OTHER amazing things were in HCF beyond just the aminos.* I promptly stopped the multivitamin and got him back on the HCF. Within 1 week, the change back to our sweet, controlled, happy boy was evident, and we were praising God!†*
We continue to have amazing results now that his brain is being fed properly and his hormones are more balanced.†* Our Bryce is now 6 years old, he is at the TOP of his class, he has so many friends, and is well loved by his teachers.* We are so incredibly grateful to the makers of HCF! I continue to spread the word to other families—particularly those using harmful popular alternatives all in the name of helping their child.* Those harmful popular alternatives are only MASKING problems and creating new challenges.* HCF is the answer!”
