Afraid to jinx it

So I've been thinking it, but have been too scared to say it out loud, praying it isn't just a coincidence...but I think I can safely say I am seeing a change in Isaiah...he stims so much less now, he's not as hyper, his meltdowns aren't quite as frequent. Getting ready for school this week has been almost easy! He hasn't battled me about eating, he has had some mild meltdowns, and some stimming but not near as much as usual. Today Tierra and I went to walmart and I asked Tierra if Isaiah seems different to her at all, she said YES HE DOESN'T DO THIS (mimicked his usual hyper jumping up and down w/ making a weird noise stim). My heart just melted, ok it wasn't just me seeing what I want to see, someone else sees it too! And she's pretty impartial. I mean she knows we've found a new Dr. and are trying things to help Isaiah be more normal, but she doesn't know any of the details, or what might change. So I feel I can safely share this, I am almost certain, my baby is healing!!!

Here's what we've done so far...
October 23, Met our DAN, and began mixing the Biomed w/ chiropractics and acupuncture (not needles just a painless laser)
October 24, started the GF/CF barely soy diet,
October 30, started epson salt baths
October 31, 2nd appt w/ DAN, this is also the day we noticed his psoriasis that we've been battling for 4 years had magically disappeared
November 3, began taking Probiotics...

We've found when our daughter gets gluten she gets very hyper... but also very chatty... We're trying now to eliminate the hyper but not the chatty.
