I met her May 2022. She continued to have breakthrough seizures q 1-2 mth (but they have been less intense and frequent since we started her on TCM). She is a sweet Earthy girl, tongue is lavender-pink, flabby, moist, with fissures, pulses are well toned. I originally put her on Tian Ma Gou Teng Yin and XCHT with SWT + Thuja for vaccinosis. In Sept 2022 I saw her again, O said she had battled yeasty itchy ears all summer, only 1 seizure, and continued to lick all her feet. I then switched out the XCHT for BZYQT (recognizing the UTI history, allergies, and a softer pulse with SP4 massage), Mometamax for ears I really thought I had it this time!
In Nov she came back with more ear troubles, only 1 seizure now in 4 mth, but paws still licked. At this point I thought I was missing a ShaoYang disharmony so added CHJLGMLT, green tea dilution sprayed on her feet after walks to soothe. By Jan no real improvement with ears, chin skin irritated, suddenly a more fussy appetite - fed homemade and raw diet - (she does get 3 different herbs in food), and had 2 breakthrough seizures such that neurologist upped Keppra dose. More Mometamax was given, but I am really struggling with these ears! I am wondering if she is getting too much tonification with the TMGFY? Or not enough? The BZYQT nor the CHJLGMLT doesn't seem to have caused any change. Please advise!
