The Allergies

Our little boy, Jack was born with allergies. At just a few weeks old he was having severe symptoms which I was able to remedy by cutting cow's milk from my diet. Later we found he was very sensitive to wheat and allergic to egg, removing these from my diet eliminated persistent rashes, eczema, and relentless cradle cap. At a year old, he tested positive for milk, egg, green pea, and red grapes. At age two we did further testing and confirmed a severe peanut allergy. Here's what we now know about Jack's allergies:

Allergic to:

IgE - peanut, egg, milk, green pea, red grapes, soy, almond, dog, cat, mold, and dust mite.

IgG - oyster, almond, soy, coconut, filbert, lentil, grean pea, and cucumber.


We're treating Jack for leaky gut through our Naturopathic doctor and have seen tremendous improvement through their guidance in diet and supplementation. We are also working on Jack's immune system through the implementation of sequential homeopathy, a homeopathic method which heals traumas to the body sequentially and balances life energy. We decided to treat Harvey as well and homeopathy quickly cured his eczema!
