Developing a Tolerance
Bright red cheeks, annoying out of control behaviour, and constant ear infections are often signs of allergies and intolerances. These kids stand out as troubled and not as healthy. These sick kids might eventually outgrow their allergies and intolerances. Many doctors disregard these obvious signs of food intolerances because we have a "death and disease" medical model. Your child will not die from red cheeks, constant ear infections that are treated with antibiotics and out of control behavior. And they might eventually develop a tolerance for these foods that are bad for their body. They might not have outward symptoms even though they might be suffering invisible damage--either physically or neurologically from the food that their body can't handle. But sometimes by removing food that is causing these symptoms you can allow the body to heal and to thrive--not just become tolerant.
