Yeah, I don't know. One possibility is that in someone (like maybe me) who doesn't have a "built in" source of inflammation, omega 3:6 imbalance can create it anyhow. I think for DS that undigested food ravaging his gut (gluten, casein, starches, sugars, sals) was creating inflammation, and maybe his metals load as well.
Not sunburning really caught my attention, but other things are better too - my menstrual cramps (from totally awful to pretty minor), DS' teething (from totally awful to tolerable)... My family history is loaded with RA and other inflammation issues, so it doesn't surprise me we're sensitive. I just don't feel like we did a huge amount to address it, beyond lowering omega 6's, a little biotin, and removing some of the worst inflammation sources.
