The Baby Had a Dairy Allergy
Elizabeth Steinweg firstname.lastname@example.org wrote: Good Morning Robert! Thank you so much for your refreshing daily reminders of how we can all do without cows milk. My son has a dairy allergy. He is now 3-1/2 and quite healthy! However, when he was a baby, he would wake up several times each night and make lots of noise. It made things difficult and we were very concerned about his sleep disorders. Even into toddler hood, we also noticed he would get these coughs and wheezes that wouldn't go away for weeks and weeks. His nose would run and he was one miserable creature! I have known for some time about the detrimental effects of dairy on the population but we were still consuming it in moderate amounts. One day, after reading one of your articles on snotty nosed kids, I decided we were finished! We don't buy anything with dairy anymore--even lactose in seasonings, casein in "non- dairy" cheeses, etc. We tested our son by allowing him to have very small quantities of dairy over a 3 month period just to see if this is what was causing his constant congestion...sure enough, every time he had some, he plugged up. So we knew for sure that we needed to quit consuming cow juice. After all, it was made for cows, not humans, right? In the process of ridding our home of this poison, the rest of us have felt better as well. We don't seem to be getting the colds and "allergies" that we used to when we ate dairy. Grant, my son, is now breathing easy and his nose is so clear, it's freaky! Tiffany, my daughter (almost 8), hasn't been sick for many months and seems to be fighting off the "bugs" that many of her classmates are getting without much difficulty. I might add, we eat as healthy as we can in other domains as well. Whole grains, fruits, nuts, vegetables pretty much comprises our diet and I'm finding so much more variety in the vegan way of eating than ever before! Occasionally, we feel the need to have something that's quick and convenient and can be used for special occasions. I found this place called: http://www.yvonneskitchen.com that has made this transition much easier in many ways. Everything in her repertoire is dairy and egg free. They are dry mixes that are very convenient to use and very tasty too! So far, we've had the corn bread, chocolate pudding, chocolate cake, and pancake and waffle mix. Yum! Yum! How refreshing to be able to make a chocolate cake for my kids' birthdays that's safe for everyone! The corn bread is very fluffy and the chocolate pudding is smooth and silky. Try some and see what you think! If you like them, you may want to pass the site along to your readers. I'll leave that part up to you--I am not benefiting in any way personally by passing this along--only wanting others to benefit from this find! Thanks again for your conviction and determination in getting the word out...God Bless!
