question about food allergies in 2 year old boy

Hi-

my son developed very bad eczema when he was 4 months old. We saw a classical homeopath, and did many other holistic treatments, and now his eczema is gone, unless he reacts to a food, then it fades in a few days.

His sensitivity to many foods remains though... Can anyone offer suggestions on how to clear the sensitivity to so many foods (rice, wheat, soy, nuts, fish, pumpkin ect).

Thank you,
John

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Do you attribute the improvement to homeopathy? If so what kind of dosing was used? Dry pellets given at intervals or a watery solution repeated often?

I do attribute the improvement in part to homeopathy, and a very careful diet, and kinesiology.

he was given dry dose pellets of an arsenic remedy by a classical homeopath. it has been almost a year though since his treatment.

The method i would prefer would be a watery solution refered to as LM potencies, or split dosing . This is still a classical method. It is often overlooked because it entails much more work (case managment). If you are comfortable discussing this with you homeopath do so it may take things to a new level. Do not however try this on your own useing arsenicum .It is more of an advanced method, and the remedy picture or state may have changed. Miasmatic prescribing should also be employed. regards

Dear Syncotic-

Am I to understand from your post that you think we should stick with the original remedy, but alter the way it is administered? I was hoping for something we could do on our own as money is getting to be a problem and each doctor visit is $100 and not covered by insurance.

Is there anything we can do on our own?

No Ars. may have been well indicated at that time but maybe not now. It s tough you see because it would be a shame to undo the good that haas been done. 100 bucks is a lot of money .Different docs work differenly of course, personally I have a greatly reduced rate for kids and try and see them every few months at first. I dont know what to tell you like I say you dont wnat to mess up what has been done and that is possible.

Thanks Sycotic, I understand and agree. He is much better of course, but in some ways I feel like the battle is only half finished. he life will not be normal until all the food reactions are gone. Will try and get him back to the doc soon. While I am willing to experiment to a degree on myself, I cannot on him.

John, I completely understand what you are going through. We dealt with the same with my son who is now 5 and eats a normal diet with no restrictions. Previously, his diet was free of gluten, casein, corn, soy, artificial flavors and colors and most fruits and vegetables. We could only eat 8 foods.

We found that NAET treatments (Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique)which is basically accupressure (not accupuncture) coupled with the homeopathy is what did the trick. You can google NAET or go to www.NAET.com.

If you cannot find a practitioner that will accept insurance, you can teach yourself through a video which is BioSET which is basically the same technique as NAET except she adds in enzyme supplements. While we don't follow that protocol, my son does take an enzyme called NoFenol so he can eat fruits and vegetables without problems. I learned how to do the treatments from the video to save us money.

I hope it's OK for me to reference it but you might find some good food allergy info at the site where I give my son's full case history: www.recoveredfromautism.com.

Good luck with treatments.

Hi Busymom-
In fact we are doing similar treatments througha a very good natural doc who does BRT and something very similar to NEAT, and it has been a huge help in the year we have been seeing her. She told us that we could do homeopathy as well to help, but that she couldn't recommend any remedies. we just gt a bit impatient I guess.

I am so glad to hear that your child (with your help) pulled out of this nightmare. i think we are about half-way there... just need to finish the job. Thanks for the kind thoughts and help.

can I ask what type of homeopathy was given to your son, and how long did it take to work?

I was checking the posts on the ABC page and noticed that you had posted your problem with your 2 year old son who showed signs of Eczema when he was just 4 years old.

I have prescribed Arnica 6c which you used for just a few days and it worked in your case like magic and it is obvious that this same remedy from your own bottle which you are now using will also help your son.

What are you waiting for ?
You already have the proof before your eyes how Arnica works.

Joe-

My son's case is now very different from mine, tell me what you think. Through holistic means (homeopathy NAET and diet), his eczema is cleared, his skin looks perfect, exept that, when bath him or something touches his skin, he gets little hives, just a few of them, and they dissappear soon after. In short, its no longer eczema. We suspect that his immune system is still hyper reactive, and we still feed him a very restricted diet as we are sure there are many many foods that will cause him to break out.

Is the Arnica still the appropriate remedy in his case?

John,
I'm sorry I didn't see this earlier. My son's remedy was the DPT remedy but it may be different for every child. He had a severe reaction to the DPT shot. In total, his recovery took a little over 3.5 years. The first dose of remedy brought good subtle changes, but the 2nd and 3rd were truly miraculous almost one year after beginning homeopathy.

With the 3rd dose, he began talking in full sentence, potty trained himself, and began dressing himself. He had never put on or taken off an article of clothing before and was mostly nonverbal up until that point. You can read his full story here: www.recoveredfromautism.com.

Unfortunately, sometimes it takes time with homeopathy, but it is well worth the wait. And for better or worse, homepathy is a very individualized medicine so what works for my son may or may not work for others.

I hope that helps.

John,
Forgive me, I reread your posts and realize your son is not autistic but has the food intolerances.

You are smart to follow the diet modifications while he heals. Thankfully, my son is now eating a normal diet. It sure does make life a lot easier! And cheaper!

As for the cost of treatments, have you considered learning to do BioSET/NAET yourself so you can treat him at home? Now that you have seen him being treated, it would be simple to learn. You can find a video that demonstrates how to do it as well as a book which details the muscle testing, etc. Plus you can buy a set of testing and treatment vials for $100 (the cost of one treatment) so in the long run, you will save a ton of money. I think it's important to continue with occasional 'tune-ups' with the practitioner. But we found the at home treatment helped save us a ton of money!

Find the video here: http://www.buyenzymes.com/m-12-bioset.aspx

It is the Food Allergy Cure book by Ellen Cutler. It's virtually identical to NAET except has a further step. Plus she does the enzymes but we don't do that except the NoFenol.

I think the homeopathy definitely addressed the underlying issue which was at the root of his food sensitivities. The NAET cleared the sensitivities so he could eat normally and now the remedy is bringing his body to full health. I am still careful about what he eats, minimal processed, etc. But he has no 'allergy' restrictions anymore.

I hope that helps.

As for the remedy choice for your son right now... it would be hard to tell without a detailed list of symptoms, description of him, history, etc. As Sycotic stated, it will be important to make a good choice going forward. What does the homeopath say?
 
busymominme last decade
Hi Busymom-

Thanks for your thoughtful replies. I think i am going to take Max back to our homeopath to see what he thinks. Its beyond me to figure it out.

re the bioset, were you able to get good at it working with your son? i do believe in muscle testing, but have not had much luck with using ordinary food items with my wife and me. maybe the vials are easier to use... and, did you have any luck with self treatment?
