July 2014 .
As a mom, I want my kids to be healthy, so I've been on my own side journey of research. I've put more knowledge into my head than I will ever be able to regurgitate but the main thing I have come a way with is that what we eat has a huge impact on our health.
The nutritionist recommended a gluten and dairy free diet. Right before we had visited him I had waded my way through a book on the science behind autoimmune and diet. It also recommended no gluten or dairy, but went farther to eliminate a large list of foods for a three month period. Mak was so desperate to get better he was willing to try anything. So, we stepped off one ride and got on another.
|Jack's Eczema August 31, 2014|
Three in our family show signs of autoimmune. Mak with his Alopecia, myself with M.S and Jack with Eczema (not commonly understood as autoimmune).
And here we are three weeks into a major change in the way we eat.
|After three weeks on a new diet - |
no topical treatment at all
It's a ride I would rather not have gotten on, but that was not my choice. My choice though is to count it all joy when I fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of my faith produces patience. I want to let patience have its perfect work so I may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
