I have 3 children and a husband. My 10yo son has been on a restricted diet on and off since birth. My almost 6yo youngest daughter has been on a restricted diet since she was one year old. When my son and my youngest daughter had their ALCAT tests done in 2008, I decided to take myself off the top 4 food intolerances, which both of the kids shared as well. Amazingly, my perpetual back spasms which couldn’t be controlled by conventional prescription medicine went away and I weaned myself off the meds. Most of my anxiety went away as well as IBS symptoms, and I felt better than I had in years. My husband and oldest daughter both have seasonal allergies, but no food problems. In the last year, we’ve found out that those same two food-intolerant children and I have lyme disease. The doctor thinks that I may have contracted it between my first child and my second, and that’s why my oldest is healthy, and my subsequent ones are not. So we’re all in treatment for that. As we’re restricted, and I don’t want my children to feel “denied”, I continue to try new recipes and replicate recipes that I see on TV, at fairs, etc.
