PRP Immune Recovery Spray (Proline Rich Polypeptides)
Immune Builder For Flu & Allergy Season
I have mentioned it several times and I have had a lot of people comment and email me about it wanting more information. We cannot recommend it enough. Our entire family takes this and will continue to do so through cold and flu season. My daughter cannot get the flu shot this year and the rest of our family has opted out of it due to the CDC's list of ingredients. We will not forgo every vaccine for every family member, instead we will weigh the risk and ingredients and immune system of each and every choice. So, for the flu, instead of the shot this year, we will do everything we can to fend it off naturally and this product is where we started. It was recommended by our doctor at a wellness center we go to and if one of us starts to feel sick, we take a few extra doses of this spray. And I will say that it tastes much better when kept in the refrigerator. Just keeping it cold means I don’t have to chase the children with the spray bottle for more than 5 minutes anymore. It is gluten and dairy free (colostrum is not dairy and is usually handled well even if lactose intolerant).
From the manufacturer, Neurobiologix, we use: PRP Immune Recovery Spray which is a bovine colostrum based natural immune building spray. It contains Proline-Rich-Polypeptides (PRPs) which help to modulate normal immune responses. PRPs are tiny information carrying proteins with amazing adaptability. In times of intense physical stress, they enhance immune activity by promoting the production of cytokines. In the opposite situation, when a healthy immune system reacts to environmental factors through cytokine production, PRPs send signals via specific cell receptor sites to decrease the production of cytokines in order to balance the immune system. PRPs help regulate the thymus gland (the body’s central command for the immune system), stimulating an underactive immune system or down-regulating an overactive immune system as seen in autoimmune disease. They inhibit the overproduction of lymphocytes and T-cells and reduce the major symptoms of allergies and autoimmune issues, pain, swelling and inflammation.

We saw Dr. Stewart yesterday for our 6 month check up. On the prior visit, we started the Immune Restore+. We saw almost immediate improvements. I will list the areas where we have seen the most improvements after 6 months:
Depression gone...this is huge!
Much more interactive with family and friends
Able to stand at church and during chapel time at school without getting tired (previously was so tired, could not stand but for a couple of minutes at the most.)
Has not missed any school so far (This has been a major struggle for her. She would refuse to go to school with all kinds of complaints. Headache, stomach ache, insomnia, too tired, etc.)
Taking more responsibility for chores and personal hygiene
I know all our kids are different, but for us the Immune Restore+ has been a really big piece to our puzzle!
I Hope this encourages someone!
Some parents may not know our story, but I wanted to post again in response to some of the recent comments about 'regressive healing.'
We began seeing Dr. Stewart in 2008, after seeing over a dozen other DAN/other physicians and being told that my son was a non-responder. At age 7, he was still not potty trained and nonverbal. He had significant gut issues, allergies, behavioral issues, frequent night waking, and would bolt from the house (even in the middle of the night).
Upon testing with Dr. Stewart, we found he still had heavy metal toxicity (even after years of chelation), viral load and significant immune dysfunction (low immunoglobulins and low T cell count).
I could list all the protocols we tried to 'heal his gut' or 'clear his metals' or 'kill yeast' but it could fill a paragraph. At our first appointment with Dr. Stewart, he explained that we were just treating symptoms and not the source of my son's immune dysfunction. He also explained the importance of following his protocol and not trying to keep different interventions/ protocols that we had been using. That was hard to take, since we had invested quite a bit in the multiple supplements we were using every month. Also, being in the medical field for 20 years led me to believe that I had researched every single intervention, believed in the efficacy, and I would keep what I believed to be the critical supplements.
I only made this mistake for a few months, before realizing that Dr. Stewart was right. Thus, we began only following his protocol and only followed Dr. Stewart's instructions and thus I was expecting great results...and fast. I was out of time, money and patience.
The early results were neither great nor fast. In fact, my son began having worse behavior issues. That was the first time I heard of "regressive healing" and Dr. Stewart explained that the brain does not like change even when it was positive. How did we know it was positive? My son's testing showed less neuro-inflammation on each visit. However, while we saw regression in some behaviors, we started seeing progress in other areas. He began using his first words, and a few months later those words became connected in 2-3 word sentences. Today, he speaks quite a bit, and has started unprompted conversation such as, "How do I earn money?" or "Where is Dad and when does he come home?"
His heavy metals cleared within 6 months of treating the immune dysfunction (after all those years of chelating!). His viral load improved, T cell and immunoglobulin levels returned to normal. Food allergies disappeared within a couple of years. The lab results clearly showed documented progress. This is something no other physician had been able to demonstrate!
We have seen many episodes of regressive healing over the last 5 years. However, each episode brings progress and new skills that emerge. After one particularly bad regression, Jake emerged by learning to ride his bike without training wheels. He also can throw a 10 yard pass, shoot hoops in basketball from the line, and swim. These are skills I never imagined he would acquire.
He's 12 years old now, and starting 7th grade in the fall. He has moved from a completely self-contained classroom to attending a few gen-Ed classes. He does homework, reads aloud and answers questions about the story. Recently, he began unloading the groceries from the car and put food away in the freezer. Also, he learned to clean his bathroom and put away his clothes.
He's a pretty healthy kid these days. We see occasional PANDAS flares (usually in the spring or fall when strep outbreaks happen at school) and have to watch yeast when he gets too much sugar in his diet. Interestingly, yeast overgrowth causes him to stop talking and he regresses into being nonverbal again. It's difficult because he loves fruit and carbohydrates, but we try to give him more protein than the yeast loving foods.
Our focus these days is keeping the immune system functioning properly, and immune modulators are important. To explain, see this summary from Dr. Stewart about these:
The immune system is normally our natural first line of defense against illness and bad health. However, sometimes immune systems function abnormally due to deficiencies and disorders where the body either loses its natural immunity or else the immune system turns against the body it is supposed to protect. In either case, natural immune modulators may provide the key to maintaining a strong and properly functioning immune system. - Kendal Stewart, M.D. / Neuro-Immune Specialist
So, I could write much more about our progress, and ups and downs along the way. It's been a long, successful parent and physician partnership with Dr. Stewart for over 5 years now. I learned that Jake responds slower than some kids, but when he does gain skills he tends to keep them. My only regret is that we didn't find Dr. Stewart and Neurobiologix sooner. I know many of the recovery stories are with the kids who receive his help very early on. We have ongoing recovery, and haven't reached the finish line yet. It's a marathon, not a sprint. Sometimes it takes months to see gains, other times it takes a few regressive weeks or months and then sudden gains.
But, we have our son back from his own private world. He engages with us, looks at us, talks with us and wants to be part of the family. I'm out of town, and I called him tonight and told him I loved him, and he said, "I love you, Mom. Come home Friday."
