Hello all! I came here to start a new thread of questions for all you wise mamas but whew! I think this thread answered many of them (and then some!)
I love reading about all of your stories and especially the updates.
I am just beginning to learn about all of this. SHort version: dd2 is currently on enzymes - it's helped her reflux IMMENSELY - no more meds! Her *allergy* eyes, dark circles are gone (almost).
I started the elimination diet and then we went to a naturopath/chiro who did muscle testing and said that broccoli and rice were suspect. (That and turkey were all I was eating - with little improvement). Once we stopped broccoli and rice things started improving - oh and with both of us taking enzymes.
I know I should do a rotation diet, but geez, what do I do? Eat only potatoes for 4 days, then only brown rice for 4 days, then only turkey for 4 days? It seems that's all dd can tolerate right now.
This is all confusing especially since she has also started eating solids. So . . . I have to watch what I eat, AND what she eats.
Her sleep has improved. Some nights she does a 3 hour stretch - some nights only 1 and 1/2 all night long.
I'm really starting to suspect gluten too (though I didn't at first). So, here's another question for you mamas:
Can I take one Peptizyde AND one *overall* enzyme at each meal just to be safe? It can't hurt can it? (I've been taking what our naturopath gave us called Chiro DGST.)
Thanks so much for this great thread!
