Younger son, Max has been struggling for well over a month with eczema. I have taken him to our family DR…I have taken him to a dermatologist. Both prescribed different variations of cortisone cream. I felt nervous to keep covering him in these medications with little or no effect on his flare-ups. I decided to make an appointment at a Naturopath to test for food sensitivities.
His test results show sensitivity to wheat/cheese/sugar/chocolate/beer etc. Since he is almost exclusively breastfed this means that I need to decide whether or not to wean him or eliminate all of the food culprits from my diet with the hopes that his eczema improves.
All of a sudden, I am not sure what I can and cannot eat. The list seems rather long on the “Do not eat” side! I am not opposed to making my own bread, granola and baked goods if it will improve his health. I am very worried about eliminating sugar (upon closer inspection sugar is in everything) and cheese (it is part of my daily diet)!
No decisions have been made as of yet…
