i have a seven month old daughter who is allergic to manymany things including, soy, dairy, peanuts, corn, carrots, and apples.... but it must be genetic because im allergic to dairy, soy, beef, corn, peanuts, wheat, glueten and much more. i wanted to let you know some allergies they can outgrow. have you found a good natural dr? This was so important for me. they found out that my daughter had the allergies before she even ate it... well all except the carrot. she had a major reaction it almost sent her to hospital. but the natural dr. has been wonderful for me. i have many many recipes and ideas if you get to the point you need them. Sometimes a natural dr can tell you if its genetic or like for me 25 % of my allergies are due to emotional issues in my past... issues i had as a kid. you can do flushes (not painful, though it sounds) to get rid of allergies if you go to a great natural dr. i am going to be working on them soon myself. im not sure how it all works with kids... as the kids get older it will be a great resource.

hope that helps.

Hi Rebecca,
The first thing I would do is address his immune system. Approximately 80% of it is in the digestive track. You need to add the flora into his system. One way to do it is by giving them a organic yogurt...i suggest stoneyfield farms, nancy's, or brown cow.
Also add alfalfa into there diets. This will reduce swelling and also build up their immunities....do it slowly though. Make sure they dont have a reaction.

You also want to change your cleaning products to natural green cleaners. Most cleaners are toxic...and are actually neurotoxins and directly affect your brain.
I suggest Shaklee nutritional products and cleaning products as they have been around since 1956. You can find the products at www.logiedistr.myshaklee.com

Let me know if you have any other questions.
Good luck,

Susan

Hi Rebecca, My 5 year old has food and outdoor allergies. It is very challenging at times and I feel really bad for him. He limited to outdoor activities and he always pauses before eats something. I watch the weather channel to keep up on the pollen levels, I don't really keep any foods in the house he's allergic to , and instead of the metal allergy bracelet, I have these fluorescent allergy bands. As you know, it's hard sometimes, but I can tell you're doing a good job by your concern and willingness to get outside help. But, if you want to hear something that will lift your spirits here a true story. I was preparing for surgery and decided to gather my family for a quick review on the procedure if my son got a hold of somethings he's allergic to. Everyone sat down a gave me their undivided attention. I proceeded to instruct them on how to use the Epi-Pen, even going as far as showing them where to inject and how lond to keep the pen pressed against the leg. After the demo was done I realized that I did not have the practice pen. Nope, I had the real thing. I had injected my self with the Epi-Pen.lol.

What's even worse than that, when I explained to my freinds what I had done none of them were all that surprised. lol. It seems rough on them but they adjust very well, we're the ones who have the true issues.

Hey Rebecca! I understand completely how you feel! My daughter is allergic to peanuts and has some outdoor allergies and my son has real bad outdoor allergies and is very allergic to dogs and cats. My daughter can be around peanuts but can't touch or eat them. Thankfully schools have pretty much gone peanut-free. She was also allergic to milk and latex when she was younger, but has since been ok with that.



I guess my advice is do your research and find out what remedies there are for the allergies they have and how you can help them. Depending on what they are sometimes there are home remedies that can help. Take a deep breath and know that it will be ok and that it could be much worse. Food allergies you can work with other problems you may not be able to manage. I guess this helped me to deal with the frustrations of having the food allergies. Hang it there, things will be ok! Hope this helps and feel free to email me if you ever just want to talk!



Warm Regards,
