The curcumin arrived in the mail on Saturday and we gave the boys their first dose of it Saturday night. So, two days on it so far, and I don't see much change yet. I was just telling AJ's lead therapist that this morning, and then we both noticed that the boys were sitting calmly, watching Dora.....so perhaps I'm not looking closely enough. It only lasted a couple of minutes, but it was unusual to see them both sitting down like that.
I've heard curcumin will reduce hyperactivity and increase eye contact. The one quote that keeps flashing through my mind was from one of the moms I know in the Fragile X email group, who said that her son's eye contact "freaked her out", after starting curcumin. She was just so surprised at how he'd stare, and look her right in the eye. Well, I'm not freaked out yet. But we'll give it some time, might as well; I've got a whole big $18 bottle of it!
