J had a an allergy test done today and they guy was spot on, knew stuff He no way could of known, it turns out J is intolerant/allergic, to Cow Milk, egg, Red Peppers, red chillies, tomatoes and a rare allergy to soya as well, so thats going to be a hard one if were to cut out dairy products, he was assessed as having thiriod imballance and has high levels of cortisol, so very stressed.

I am totally blown away, we have some homeopathic treatment to treat his aliments and were going to begin withdrawing the foods from tomorrow, but on a slow process, were going to be doing a lot of smelling, licking and toutching again, if anyone else has been on this journey please share with me your expeiences, I was totally amazed to this method of testing allergy and intolerances.

I strongly suspected Wheat as he has this a lot, but it isnt its the milk that goes on the wheat that is the problem, it really is an eye opener.

Let you know how it goes.

Soya allergy is not that rare in the far east, where they eat a lot of it. I think it is only rare here because we do not eat so much. Corn allergies are common in America, but rare here. Wheat and dairy allergies are more common here, where we eat a lot of them.

There are other types of dairy-free 'milk' including rice, almond and oat milk. Some chocolate powder might help to disguise the different taste. Sheep and Goat's milk is becoming more and more common now too, including other dairy products like yoghurts and cheese. Manchego, feta and Wensleydale cheeses are traditionally made from sheep's milk, and you can get goats hard cheeses and butter.

You can get egg replacer to use in baking.

Maybe he will be more willing to try different foods if he is involved with choosing and preparing them.

Good luck! Let us know how you get on.

Good luck with the food withdrawal - I hope you see some positive results.

I haven't done this myself so can't offer any advice, but there are others who have, I'm sure.

Hi JM smile.gif

My two youngest both have severe multiple food allergies.

Just a thought...it sounds as though J may have an intolerance to some food, but if he had a true allergy you would already know, because when he ate/touched those things his body would produce too much histamine and his mouth/airways/face/eyes would swell. A true allergy is very dramatic, and can be extremely dangerous (in the most severe cases leading to anaphylaxis) whereas an intolerance can be very uncomfortable/painful but not dangerous.

I would recommend you ask your GP for a referral to a specialist allergy clinic, as the tests they do there are most accurate (skin prick tests, and detailed blood tests).

Not wanting to be a doom goblin, but we were warned at the specialist allergy clinic my two littlies go to that tests like Vega, etc, can give misleading results unsure.gif

Hi, I was a bit spectical but the test revealed really alarming results and J was partically eating foods that came out as sensistive, there is no way this could be coinsedence, it was bang on, I couldnt continue with the herbal tablets he refused flately to take it, the smell and look totally put him off.

We have slowly cut out some sensitive foods and the ones he continues to eat we are prepared for the results.

I totally understand where you are coming from, I did it really to put my mind at rest what foods could be contirbuting to his difficulties and the results were very valuable.

I know it is not for everyone but I am still glad I went ahead and did the vega test.

Hi,

I had my son vega tested when he was 4 (he is now nearly 9). The reason being because he was so hyperactive ( 3 years down the line he has be dx with ADHD, HFA and Dyspraxia) , but at the time, I was looked upon as a bad parent, so I would have tried anything!!

R was shown to have intolerances to tomatoes, citrus, citric acid and caffiene , all of which cause hyperactivity. Citric acid was the absolute worst thing ever as it is in everything - food, bodywashes, soaps.

We immediately stopped all these things. Gave him carab instead of chocolate (which contains caffeine) . I have to say that R was calmer than before, but, was so unhappy,that he couldn't have the things his friends had - chocolate, sweets, pizza (no tomatoes). I slowly started introducing them back.

Your homeopath can give your little one tables containing the things thy are allergic to, which would build up their immune system, but really unless they are having a severe allergic reaction, whats the point???

Good luck
