I am so glad to learn about the omega 3/6 thing. After reading about this, I decided to give it a try and whoa what a difference. I would do more fish oil but my kids are sensitive to too much fish oil, and I know we needed more omega 3's than that. So just in the last 2 days I have been taking and giving my kids large amount of flax oil (with liignans- very important) and what a difference it has made. My 2 yr dd who normally would break out terrible to chocolate, snuck in the grocery store and ate a chocolate that had soy in it too, and I waited for the huge break out, and what do you know, she just got a little red behind her legs and dry on her back, but not all over her whole body for days and bleeding like usual. The only difference is the flax oil. I am stil in awe. I thought that my dd would never have chocolate again, but this may be the key. Just think what we could eat again if a serious food was semi ok, the minor ones may not give her any reactions now.
I am still in utter shock- my kid ate chocolate with soy and is alright!!
