Eczema (insert swear word here)

I am a firm believer that 90% of eczema comes from food intolerances or allergies. Now I know I am not a doctor; and I will never claim to be, but I do believe that eczema can be cured “most” of the time just by some tweaking of a diet.

So many times people have come to me with eczema that just will NOT go away and we check out their diet, or their child’s diet, and within a few days of removing the culprit food… BOOM! It’s gone.

What I learned about motherhood after my mother died

My mom died suddenly, randomly, out of the blue at the age of 59. It was a shock to the world and even more so, my children. When she died, I had just had my third child, she was only 2 months old, and I was already lost in the sea of postpartum hormones.

I was drowning, what do you do with new the huge aching hole in your heart?

THE elimination diet

So you deliver this beautiful baby and all of a sudden it has these red bumps on its cheeks and a diaper rash and it doesn’t go away. You go to the doctor and they brush it off as “just baby acne and normal baby stuff” but you just have this gut feeling it’s something else and then you notice some spit up too. I tend to believe that mom gut (mom intuition) usually knows best. So you check Facebook mom groups and some people are all like “oh yeah my baby had that and it was a food allergy/intolerance” and you freak for a second..

MY PERFECT BABY CAN’T HAVE A FOOD ALLERGY!!

Sorry friend, but they can. And a lot do… and it’s going to be okay!
