Healing our son with the GAPS diet
My now 5 year old son was diagnosed with a severe dairy allergy when he was around 2 years old. Any kind of uncooked dairy product touching his skin will cause hives and if ingested he vomits and has eczema. He has also been diagnosed with RAD (reactive airway disorder) and has been on an inhaler twice a day for several years. Without the inhaler each cold would take us into the ER where he would receive high doses of steroids. Over the years I have watched him suffer so much and I have tried to help his allergies by altering his diet and using essential oils and neither have worked.
Recently we have consulted with a nutritional counselor who has suggested we put him on the GAPS diet. This diet has been shown to heal dairy allergies and alleviate other environmental allergies. It's going to be a huge change for this little guy but we are going for it.
Over the next few weeks we will be transitioning him to GAPS and I will update everyone on his condition. Wish us luck!
