The quest for bread
Posted 5:42 PM on Mon-11-Feb-2013
I had the follow up consultation with the naturopath this afternoon about my daughters allergies. The list was so long and daunting it was great to be able to run through it with her and find out the causes for some of her health issues and also replacements for certain foods. The first thing on my 'to do' list is to make a bread that she is allowed to eat, it has to be gluten, wheat, yeast, dairy, margarine and sugar free. Quite a mission. I've found a recipe online and have a loaf in the oven as I type. It is mainly almond flour so an expensive loaf of bread but high in protein which she needs. She has a fungal infection hence the non sugar and yeast diet and also Read More...

Testing testing 1 2 3
Posted 3:19 PM on Wed-14-Nov-2012
As some of you know my daughter has allergies. The main one is dairy but I know wheat or gluten reacts with her and possibly soy. There is so many allergies in both sides of the family to food, preservatives and household products so I really hardly know where to start with what to introduce and what to avoid. There is so many preservatives in food nowdays it's hard to avoid them all, knowing which ones I need to avoid would be helpful and also she has a permanant cold nowdays which may be a reaction to something I don't know what.... So I think getting her tested is a good idea. I've googled it and there is so many options nowdays - muscle testing, hair testing, saliva t Read More...

Don't be so rash!
Posted 10:34 AM on Mon-10-Sep-2012
Nothing (apart from clowns) freaks me out more than a good rash. In particular if one has evolved over night, and that night included puking. Yikes. Thank goodness there's a bit of a tickle war raging at our house at the moment. The Bloke was 'it' and lifted up Pockets pj top to go in for a tickle but stopped dead in his tracks noticing his daughter had a red rash of teeny weeny spots all over her tummy. On further inspection, turns out it had also broken out on her back, legs and arms. Panic. Well, he didn't panic but of course with a recent news item about a 12 year old girl who died after a short illness which involved vomiting, let's just say I was more than a li Read More...

Ever year..always the same
Posted 12:21 AM on Mon-20-Dec-2010
Ugh.... I should know by now and yes I suppose I do! I really am allergic to Christmas Trees, and no I'm not the Grinch! It all started when I went to get the tree and I came up in itchy welts just by searching thru them to find the right one. The pine needles scratch my skin andmake me alll itchy. That's a sure sign ( duh!!) Because of our crazy few weeks we only got the tree a few days ago and its a living one. So we brought it inside this afternoon and as I've been sitting here typing my eyes are getting itchier and itchier and now they are swollen and gross and weeping and really sore. And what's worse our room is off the living room so not sure how I'll sle Read More...

Halloween: to trick or treat? AND Allergy Friendly Rocky Road
Posted 3:47 PM on Tue-2-Nov-2010
I have a confession to make. I LOVE Halloween. I always have and I think I will probably always will. In my mind it has nothing to do with scaring people, or bugging people for lollies. It's the imaginative aspect of it. When I was a wee child thirty odd years ago, I remember bugging my parents to let me go trick or treating. My mother very diligently made me a cat costume and asked the next door neighbour who we were friends with if they would mind me knocking on their front door. It is a fond childhood memory I have carried with me to this day and so I have decided it will become a part of our family tradition.This Halloween I had big plans, I loved the hand print ghosts that Craftylo Read More...

The Aqueous Cream issue and Tips for baking gluten free
Posted 3:44 PM on Thu-28-Oct-2010
Wow! My first blog in ages, just goes to show how crazy life can get. Either that or I become a complete hermit in Winter. I also think my new positive attitude may have something to do with it, long may it last. But positive attitude or not I have just read some interesting info that I think all parents of kids with eczema need to know. Research has found that Aqueous cream can in fact have a detrimental effect on the skin. To find out more from people who are far more knowledgeable than I visit the Allergy NZ website. It thoroughly discusses the research and the results so you can make up your own mind about it's however, stopped using Aqueous ages ago as I Read More...

Here's my advice on running a successful birthday party. Plus a divine dip to serve to adults.
Posted 7:34 PM on Mon-5-Jul-2010
Well, we had "THE" party yesterday. In my mind I had this vision of me floating around like a domestic goddess, allergy friendly food ready to go and I would float around and greet every single guest and chat happily while the kids were in fits of joy over what a great party it was.The reality was slightly different, instead we had the in laws ring the day before and tell us they couldn't make it as they both had really bad colds and didn't want to spread it around to the littlies that would be there (VERY WISE), my parental side was giving their decision a standing ovation, while my selfish side was screaming "but we need your help!". My daughter is a handful a Read More...

Hi everyone,I just wanted to share with anyone who has a child with eczema my news.I have a little boy who's 2 and a half.He's had eczema since he was a few months old. For the last year it has been quite bad and we have had some really severe spells of it.As you can imagine I have tried sooo many different things, for example, changing diet,washing powder,not hanging his washing on the line to avoid pollen.I've tried Eczema Shield and also had recently brought him an Amber necklace as someone adviced me that this might help.Nothing made any difference..... but...... a few weeks ago our washing machine went wrong and we had to call someone out to fix it.We got to talking about Read More...

Any advice on how to run a successful birthday party?
Posted 1:17 PM on Fri-25-Jun-2010
In just over a week my husband and I will be holding our first "real birthday party" for the kidlets. By real I mean there will be other preschoolers attending, we haven't really had any before now because last year my father was recovering from a triple bypass and so all of our attention was focused elsewhere. My kids have had parties before, but there was an abundance of adults, rather than children.So... I need to know any little tricks you may have used to help those parties run a bit smoother. We are having it at our Playcentre and have only asked around 12 children to try and keep thing manageable. All food will be allergy friendly, and although there will be gluten cont Read More...
