A few strands of hair saved my sanity

When our daughter was around 10 weeks old I had to ring the ambulance for the first time as her breathing had changed. The second time she was visibly in distress and using all her accessory muscles to breathe. A very scary sight for any parent. There were no answers for the stridor (inflammation of the airway), possible explanations that could only be identified through invasive tests. I knew in my heart it was something that I was eating that was causing these episodes as she was solely breast fed at this stage…I will leave the guilt story for another time. I cut out foods and was on constant alert waiting for the next reaction and there were several. Skin prick tests identified nothing and it was then at the age of around 6 months old that I discovered Allergenics and hair analysis. They only thing they needed to test was a small amount of hair and I had a baby who already had pigtailsJ

The result – high levels of candida and a list of food intolerances. A change of diet on my behalf and a probiotic to treat the candida and to this day our girl is thriving.

Not only did this identify the problem but it saved my sanity. Any parent with a child who has intolerances or allergies knows the stress that goes along with meal times, food planning or eating away from home.

Unfortunately, Allergenics couldn’t be a part of our event but have kindly contributed to our goodie bags.

One of the reasons I created the Health, Healing & Happiness Event is to inform people of the options that are available out there.
