I have three kids. One is a daughter with no health problems at all. The other two are boys, both with eczema. When my second son was diagnosed (yesterday, in fact), I suddenly began making connections I had never even imagined when working with my first. I thought of the fillings in my mouth--that, incidentally, I got while pregnant or just before getting pregnant with my first son. I thought of how both boys had candida growing in the folds of the skin on their necks, behind their ears, etc. And suddenly I wondered if there was a connection.
An hour or two of research told me there most likely is. I can't wait for our appointment with my older son's naturopath next Tuesday to discuss all these things with him.
In the mean time, I found this thread: http://www.mothering.com/community/t/260393/eczema-interstitial-cystitis-ibs-and-yeast
A JaneS was telling her story, and she connected all three--eczema, yeast, and heavy metals. I just joined and for some reason can't PM anyone. Or reply to that thread. However, I would like to talk to her. Anyone know how I can do that?
And has anyone else noticed a connection between those three things? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
