I think I’m noticing a pattern between my son’s skin and the food he eats. What are signs of a food intolerance?
Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply: Every pregnant woman is told to drink lots of milk, and I followed that advice, and continued as I breastfed my baby. I also ate a lot of frozen yogurt.
When my son was old enough to eat solids, I gave him some yogurt, and he immediately become hoarse. That’s when I started to learn more about clinical ecology, which is now called environmental medicine, which suggests that any symptom might be a result of a sensitivity or intolerance to food, chemical, or something else in the environment.
I took my son off all dairy foods for two years, and now he can eat them without any difficulty. He had developed a sensitivity to dairy foods, having been exposed to it so much in utero. By avoiding the food and providing him with appropriate supplements, he was then able to eat the dairy without experiencing symptoms. I learned that any symptom could result from food allergies.
