Are we experts in, uh, in that field? Uh, I would say no, because there's so much to know about so many things.
Uh, are we very well acquainted with that we use in our, in our own home? Absolutely, and uh because we've just kept it pretty basic and pretty simple down to just the number of remedies like you've seen there, uh I mean there's hundreds of remedies that you can use, and we've just chosen to use a few, a few of the most powerful and most, uh, well-recognized ones uh and that's olive leaf extract uh and the garlic, um which are very well-recognized for, for being anti-fungal, anti-viral, all that stuff.
So um, so do we have formal education? No. Are we educated in them? Absolutely. We can have ... have we experienced the benefits of them in the past? Absolutely. Has it worked for us, um, in every single scenario in the past, before this? Ah, yes.
I think what the problem was here is that um ... what it ultimately would've taken is 24 hour supervision from a doctor, which we would not have received because they're not going to give somebody with croup that, to recognize that okay, he's now moved out of croup and, uh, he's now moving into uh the initial symptoms of um meningitis.
Uh, I don't think anybody would've caught that unless he was under 24 hour supervision of a doctor who, who was monitoring him just for curiosity's sake because uh, I think any doctor probably would have looked at him and said, “Yeah, okay, he's getting better, he's just a little bit lethargic, 'cause he prob'ly hasn't gotten enough stuff while he had the croup so let's nurse him back to strength,” uh I think anybody would've speculated the same thing that we speculated, and uh and then like I said unfortunate by the time he was actually showing symptoms of croup, uh or not croup, meningitis uh that's .. we jumped back on this, like I said they weren't severe symptoms but they were symptoms nonetheless that we recognized that we had to do something about it, just like we'd done something about the croup, just like we've done stuff about their colds and flus in the past, and um so we took that on.
But never would've we ever thought that um that uh there could've been a turn for the worse that quickly, otherwise, um, I promise ya, if we would've known that, he would've uh, he would've been in the hospital on the Sunday when we first when we uh started to get a little bit uh concerned about uh him maybe having something else now.
