help with dysphagia

Hi,in august last year my son
jordan 5 yrs old choked on a small building block,this resulted in an aquired brain injury.since then he has been unable to swallow effectively and is fed and hydrated through a tummy peg.We have tried vitalstem treatment with little success.He also has very limited motor functions and is unable to talk.We really need to get his swallow under control so more re-hab can be done and he would be so much more comfortable.the doctors have said there is no visable damage to his throat or oesophagus.
Do yu know of any other treatments we can try?

Answer #1

Hello And Greetings From Ayurvedic Cure

As per history of injury of your son it seems more to be of neurological origin. That head injury might have effected the nerves related to swallowing of the food. As you have said there is no visible organ injury.
So we personally recommend to consult the Neurologist for better diagnosis and medication.

Further queries are always welcome.

Thank you Support
