Hidden Allergies

January 22, 2018


  • today 1 in 13 children has food allergies

  • they have risen 50% over last 10 years

  • consider the rain barrel effect (genetics+individuality+environment exposure=toxic load)

  • studies conducted on umbilical cords of babies now show they have over 200 chemicals in their bodies at birth

  • this coupled with food is no longer the same (pesticides, irradiation, GMOs, growth hormones, steroids, antibiotic use, pasteurization)

  • children born with toxic load may have dysreguated metabolism and may react to these unnatural foods

  • top 12 allergens: dairy, corn, wheat, soy, peanut, food additives, shellfish, eggs, beef/pork, strawberries, citrus, tomato)

  • read ingredients labels- top 4 allergens found in all foods marketed to children

  • when a body eats the same foods repeatedly- risk of allergy becomes greater

  • common allergy symptoms= swelling, constricted airway, hives, allergy shiners, gastro issues, headaches, eczema

  • hidden allergy symptoms= picky eater, food cravings, red ears/cheeks, mood swings, anxiety, hyperactivity, aggression, sleep issues

  • what you can do: become a food detective, keep a food diary reactions can be 24 hrs later, eliminate allergen for 4 days and reintroduce-watch for reaction, read labels, educate children- show documentaries, get them involved in the kitchen, plant a garden, visit a farmer market, eat the rainbow- rotation and variety so important!

  • I can help: detect hidden allergies, prepare meal plans, assess possible nutritional  deficiencies, customize supplementation for child
