Blog is listed on the bottom of my post (I forgot it was in the signature portion from a few years ago, when I was more active here).

We're dairy/soy free because of intolerances here. We use soy-free earth balance as a butter sub and Spectrum palm shortening as a "Crisco" sub.

My husband does rotating shiftwork, so it's either the kids and me eating together for dinner, or all of us, on days that he's home around dinnertime. I think it's important.

I would say that either is a sign that the body isn't tolerating the food, but maybe that's just me.

Where is the 80% of eczema is not food related from (the statistic)? Because if it's from doctors who know nothing about food and nutrition, it's bogus. For us, my daughter's reaction to corn was...

The false negative that we had for each child (150 foods) were foods they were eating. After a year, I asked ALCAT about retesting so I wouldn't have to go through the agony of reintroducing all the...

My osteopath said that there's a new test that shows gluten sensitivity and whether you'll have bad detox. My son just acted like a heroin addict for the first 3 days of gluten free, begging for a...

The top 4 intolerances are gluten, dairy, soy, and corn (in that order). And corn is huge, and hard to avoid. Citric acid (corn derivative) is in many things (including iodized salt, baking powder,...

It definitely depends on the kid. With my second child, he was sensitive even if I had one bite. He'd start vomiting 24 hours after my ingestion and continue vomiting during and after every feeding...

No. Apple cider vinegar or wine vinegar would be safe from corn. I don't eat pickled anything out and I'm not even corn free anymore (just gluten, dairy, soy, and some others).

Since I'm of the mind that 99% of colic is probably allergy/intolerances, I'm voting for allergies/intolerances. My kids don't have the same sensitivities (well, they share some).

If it were me, I'd cut out the ghee for a week to see if it's that. If it's a milk intolerance, the ghee has other things than protein in it.

Have you tried eliminating corn? It's a huge one and it's in a lot of things (and supplements/meds as well). Lots of different names for it. Have you journaled the food chemicals - like salicylates?

If it's lactose intolerance, perhaps, since the cultures reduce the amount of lactose, but an allergy? no. And a regular milk intolerance? I'd say no to that too. At least in our family's experience.

When I went off it to keep my kids company, I found out I was intolerant too (it's been 5 years). Being "addicted" to a food can be a sign of intolerance. Unfortunately.

xylitol can be from birch or corn. If you're going to use it, see which one it is first.
