We did move successfully! We were approximately five months into the protocol when the move took place. The home in which we got the original infection, had a flea infestation upon our arrival and it took months to eradicate the problem completely. We also believe, it had mold or fungus issues. We never did find the source, but knew we needed to move in order to heal.
We took our move very slowly. We had several storage pods in the driveway that we unloaded an item at a time. I washed everything thoroughly with clean green before it entered our home. I was overly paranoid, but desperate to have a successful new start. We have not had any problems in our new place and we have been here for 4 months.
In regard to your springtails, I would do everything possible to eradicate pests before moving into a new location.
Our vehicle was an issue for us. Early on, the crawling seemed impossible to overcome and our van always seemed to exacerbate things. We diffused menthol crystals at times in the evening and went out early to crack windows in the morning. This did seem to help, but I believe one needs to be careful with menthol. I would also ALWAYS have a bottle of diluted kleen green available for the car. I wiped it down most days and sometimes multiple times and would spray the carpets. I vacuumed the vehicle once or twice a week. These all seemed to help and we still have the same van and do not have any issues after 9 months on the protocol.
We have had great success using WPS in our wash cycles. We have found 10 - 15 drops per large load to be sufficient. When we were having great difficulty with crawling and getting our clothes clean, I would sometimes stretch any elastic in the treated water and hand agitate for a bit. I would then soak for 1/2 hour to an hour. This helped. This may be a good idea for your clothes in storage.
I, too, had a teenager and an 11/12 year old through this nightmare. My oldest had symptoms so intense that we had to pull her from school and homeschool her last year. She is now back in school and at about 85% recovery. After working with Mel and John, we realized we needed to put her closer to the full protocol and since then, we have seen tremendous improvement.
It is hard enough to deal with puberty without managing MD and my heart goes out to you. Are all of your children symptomatic?
Please feel free to ask Mel for my contact information. What you are going through is extremely stressful and you need support! Please lean on us!
Praying for you and your family.
Thank you Marie.
I was informed that Jenny, Bill and Babes, have all relocated.
If you all could chime in with some suggestions I would greatly appreciate it!
I will be starting back on regular scheduled conference calls.
I appreciate you all.
Mel talking to you today gave me such a sense of peace and joy and I, so greatly honor you for that.
