Hi again - thanks for the food rotation details - that helps.
We had been using rice, buckwheat, white potatoe (sweet potato is out because of sals) and quinoa (and millet puffs sometimes for breakfast). Like I said I'm pretty sure he's just become intolerant to buckwheat so that's out now. We have bought regular millet but haven't yet tried cooking it or looking for recipes. Thanks for the amaranth, teff and tapioca ideas - we hadn't come up with any of them.
We get the same poop thing with quinoa - he just doesn't digest it at all. Does this mean we shouldn't be giving it ? But then if I didn't give anything he didn't digest we'd be halving or more the limited amount of food we do have available. Have you noticed any digestion differences since starting the enzymes ? I'm pinning alot of hope on those I think.
We've never done the IGG tests - we normally identify his intolerances with elimination diets and NAETS testing. His bronchitis is a great intolerance identifier - with behaviour and sleep etc it is always hard to know what is just him being 2 1/2 (although both do deteriorate significantly when the intolerances are around!). I am thinking of doing the IGG now, although I had heard that it is not always accurate and alot of doctors don't recommend it. What do you feel about the IGG?
Other small things we are doing include - we've stopped giving him milk (rice/soy) from the fridge - to drink or on cereal - we warm it to room temperature now. I read somewhere this was better for digestion and healing leaky gut. Also we try and encourage him to drink as much as we can between meals and try not to give him a drink with meals - sorry I forget exactly why we're doing this - I think it something to do with not diluting his digestive juices or something - if I come across the links again I'll post them. Similarly we are trying to leave it an hour after he wakes up before he has breakfast - again something to do with getting his digestive juices woken up in the morning. We only manange this 4 mornings a week it's not possible in our house on a pre-school morning !
