And the Silver Lining Is…

by Erin on March 10, 2012

Our story begins 2 1/2 years ago when my husband discovered that he has a dairy intolerance. In his case, it’s casein that bothers him, not lactose, so he is dairy-free but can tolerate goat and sheep products.

Our son was then diagnosed with a potentially life-threatening peanut allergy, and we then put pieces together and discovered that our other son is intolerant to eggs after repeated ear infections. Fortunately, he’s been able to tolerate eggs baked in things, but not plain eggs themselves.

The combination of these has radically changed how I cook, bake, and our social engagements. We’re through the worst of it and have adjusted.

One of the best things that has come of all this is that we eat so much more healthily. The processed food in our house is minimal, and I generally make the majority of our food from scratch.

If there’s a silver lining, that’s it.

I’m grateful for the awareness in the community and sensitive teachers for our peanut-allergic son, and I thank the Lord for protecting him thus far.

Thanks for sharing your story and for encouraging us all!

have you ever considered acupuncture for allergy elimination? my 3 y.o. son was allergic to EVERYTHING, soy, milk, eggs, beans, tree nuts, seafood, cats, dogs, trees, grass, weeds, dust, mold, etc… PLUS he’s gluten intolerant!! eating was a HUGE challenge. BUT when he was 2 y.o. i made friends with a woman who’s mother is an acupuncturist. she introduced me to the concept of allergy elimination with acupuncture and recommended we try it. long story short, after several treatments (approx 1 per allergen) he ONLY remains allergic to tree nuts (life threatening) and seafood, and i couldn’t be more thrilled!! it has literally changed our lives!! he had eczema SO bad from head to toe that he would scratch the top layer of his skin off. he oozed from everywhere and we had to keep him in socks, long pants, long sleeves, etc even in the dead of summer to try to keep him from scratching! all i know is it works and we are so much for the better!! please do consider it and i can send you some info if you’re interested!!
