Quoted from SandrArubaMany stories in the testimonials on O's not needing inhalers anymore, getting rid of their allergies, ashtma etc.
Quoted from LolaI have forgotten all about meds for years now ;D I might need to up the trehalose to help me remember when the last intake took place!!!! ;)
Quoted from amyfloodI have 3 blood type O children all with asthma/reactive airway and allergies. My oldest had the most severe asthma and was on flovent and a rescue inhaler. I also have asthma. as soon as we stopped the dairy, the sinus infections stopped and the resulting asthma from the sinus infections stopped. every time they go to a birthday party and have pizza and cake, the next day the green noses start and the asthma follows, but he is off the flowvent and his severe episodes are less frequent. again, if he eats a lot of cheese multiple days in a row he will have issues. I found with myself that corn is a trigger. i have stopped my own inhaled steroid and rarely need my rescue inhaler. i love tortilla chips/corn so occassionallly i break and have issues.
Quoted from BTypeAUSAlso, if I order the secretor kit can more than one person use the test or is one per person ? The same with swami, of I buy it can the whole family use it or is it for one person only ?
Quoted from BTypeAUSThats great lola ;D
Ruthiehat about your kids ? I think u mention a few times they follow the BTD, are they doing ok on it ? Do they cheat occasionally ?
Quoted from 19000Don't know if this counts and I've said this before on here but I don't need pain killer (advil etc.) when it's that time of the month any more. Used to get horrible cramps the first day now they are very tolerable.
Quoted from ruthiegirl
Yup, they cheat occasionally. I let them have soda at shul (synagogue) on Saturdays all year long.
DD2 does her best to avoid wheat when away from home, but she freely eats corn, potatoes, and dairy in social settings. I sent them off to (Jewish sleepaway) camp with compliant snack foods (dried fruits and nuts for one, luna bars and clif bars for the other) but they're eating whatever's served in the cafeteria. I did send DD2 with a box of spelt matzah so she could avoid eating wheat challah on Shabbos, but didn't bother for DD1.
I've been somewhat lazy with DS this summer as well; buying him turkey hot dogs (the turkey's fine for him, but it has unhealthy additives) and letting him eat them with ketchup. He gets negative behavioral reactions to tomato, but he's not as likely to misbehave in the first place when his sisters aren't here to provoke him and he's not frustrated with school or homework. Except for the hot dogs and ketchup, the rest of his diet is compliant right now. He's not getting any sugar other than soda at shul, and I'm giving him cod liver oil each night.
I'm much stricter with their diets during the school year, when they're under more stress and the effects of a poor diet are more obvious. I pack them healthy, compliant school lunches, but I don't police their diets in social settings away from home.
