  1. Mmmmm - a jar of Nutella and a teaspoon to go -- " Hud me back " as we say in Scotland !
  2. Sorry for delay !! Yes I use all 3 enzymes but built up very slowly over quite a few weeks just using one at a time. I found No-Fenol to be very useful in helping her to digest fruits. Hope this helps
  3. Hi, I use enzymes for my daughter from http://www.houstonni.com/ Although she is on the GF / CF diet she has improved tremendously in all areas since beginning the enzymes. Good Luck !
  4. " I can't stand up for falling down " Elvis Costello and the Attractions !!
  5. JenRose, Re the nappies issue. Your daughter may well not have the same sense of pressure in the bladder that other kids have when they need to wee. I know of a little girl who is totally oblivious to the sensation of weeing even when she is doing it - its only when the puddle emerges that she is aware then seems very shocked that it has come from her. I would also run this issue past your CDC as they may not agree with the Nursery approach. I f you do not feel comfortable with it then do not agree with it.
  6. That's really great news - I wish more 'Professionals' had a little more time to spend with our kids as it can make all the difference to the outcome of a visit.
  7. Gut and Psychology Syndrome is by Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride and is a very interesting book with lots of information on the gut
  8. Kirkmans Labs specifically make high strain probiotics which are fee from casein ,gluten etc - they are avaliable direct from Kirkmans in USA and I think also from Nutricentre in UK ( online ). The capsules can be opened up and mixed with food.
  9. There are various other natual remedies you could try to fight the candida : - try eliminating sugar as much as you can from her diet - sugar feeds the yeast and helps it to thrive and also suppresses the immune system - Extra Virgin Coconut Oil -garlic - red onion - MCT oil The National Candida Society have a website which has a lot of information on it.
  10. Yes, I did and felt very sorry for the whole family.
  11. As a Dundonian I feel I have to defend old McGonagle to the hilt for his 'unique' way with words !!
  12. Carol, Sending you lots of these <'> <'> <'> <'> <'>
  13. I think the Mumps vaccine is harder to come by and therefore more expensive to purchase. My daughter had single measles vaccine with no apparent reaction but I had given her buffered Vit C and Echinicea for a week before and after to boost her immune system.
  14. Hi Brook, I wish I could help you with this but I can't - because I hate watching people eating outside as well - and I'm a 38 yr old NT ! I especially can't bear people eating in the sunshine - it makes my skin crawl. It used to be difficult as a youngster with my mates abroad on hols - their hangover cure was always a fry-up at a pavement cafe ! Fried egg in the sunshine was enough to make me do a runner. I'm not sure your son won't always be annoyed by it but perhaps as he matures he will find stategies to deal with it.
  15. My health visitor noted my concerns at the 2 year check-up and asked an early intervention worker to come and visit with us. She asked me if I thought there was anything different about my daughter and I blurted out that I was worried she had autism ( I had never voiced this out loud to anyone else prior to her visit ) She agreed that there were a lot of behaviours going on which indicated autism and asked me if I wanted a referral to the local Child Centre or wanted to 'wait a bit'. I was totally terrified at the time and said I thought she was too young for any tests. Within 3 days I had recovered my composure and 'phoned her back to ask for a referral. Once the ball started rolling she had received a diagnosis of ASD within 6 months - she is high functioning and verbal but they don't want to pin it down as Aspergers until she's older. It's only on seeing other parents problems with obtaining a diagnosis that I realise how lucky we have been - knowledge is power right enough.
  16. I have been to a lecture where Professor Boyd Haley talked at length about the dangers of mercury in all of it's forms which was fascinating and extremely scary. His belief is a safe level of mercury to put in the human body is none at all.
  17. Lovely to' hear' from you again <'>
  18. Has she tried getting a referral to her Occupational Therapy department ? - we got our's supplied free due to my daughter's low muscle tone.
  19. Ditto ! I always find it easier to wait until someone more articulate finds the right words
  20. I thought it was only me who felt like this - I struggle to relate to NT kids at all !!
  21. Hi Jill, I have decided against my daughter getting a booster of the DPT jab. She reacted very badly to to these injections at age 3 and 4 months and I've always had a very bad feeling that 'something' happened at that time if you know what I mean. I don't know what I'd do if she hadn't had these previous reactions however - go with your gut instinct and that should be right.
  22. Hi Jaded, You could also let them know how little ( if any ) natural fruit is in things like McD's 'banana' milkshake etc and they are actually just a chemical cocktail !! I would definitely try and discuss aspartame as I know most people look upon this as a healthy option because it reduces sugar intake and I have been horrified by effects of it. Good luck - I'd come along if I could, you've always given great info here.
  23. I've often wondered why us poor females resort to such tortuous methods to be hair-free. sometimes I think it would be easier to move somewhere like Germany where they let their womenfolk roam hairy asyou like !!
