Healing a Child with Allergies
« on: March 24, 2011, 02:44:46 AM »
I believe my daughter has allergies, including environmental and food related ones.
After reading here and at Bulk Herb Store, I'm convinced we're dealing with underlying issues.  I've read about candida, leaky gut treatments, but not for use in children.
Can someone direct me to working through this with a child?  She's age 7 and 39lbs., but tall.  
Her main symptom is post nasal drip which causes a cough.
And...I've already cut way back on all sugars, when sugars are used they are maple syrup or honey, and eliminated dairy.  Wheat doesn't seem to be connected.

You might look up the threads on the GAPS diet.  That is for children as well as adults.  It is aimed at healing the gut and thereby reducing allergies/reactions to foods.
