Reaction After Touching Foods ?
Posted 27 September 2004 - 08:23 AM
Has anyone seen a similar reaction to/problem with touching foods ?
My kids are hand washing experts (better than almost everyone I know ) because of all the medical issues we have dealt with.
The food challenges at school have been dealt with, but this is a new one to me.

At my daughter's kindergarten class I have to make a gluten-free alternative every week. They do a food/cooking project every Friday. So far it has been biscuits, celery with peanut butter and Alphabits cereal, a peanut butter playdough with powdered milk and graham cracker crumbs, and last week it was graham cracker "buses" frosted with yellow coloered whipped cream and chex cereal windows and mini oreo wheels. This week it is apple turnovers! I don't let my daughter touch the items the other kids are using. I bring everything for her that she needs to make the project gluten and dairy free. The teacher is very helpful and reminds the other kids not to touch my daughters things. It has taken a lot of preparation, but one good thing is that it is getting me busy trying new gluten-free recipes that I haven't been brave enough to try yet.
I'm curious what the project was that they were making. Almost all of the things on there could have a gluten-free alternative that is almost the same (except the licorice, but I have found a rolled up fruit-by-the-foot or fruit roll up can work if you need it that bad). You have to get creative sometimes. I know it is triple hard for you, since you've got the three the same age and the one with lots of health problems. I have found that the older grades don't do so many food related projects. So my boys only need special gluten-free foods brought to school a few times a year.
Maybe the next time they have a gluten filled project come up the kids can wear plastic gloves so they don't have to actually let the gluten come in contact with their skin.

The project they made was a Roman road. It would have been expensive (but worth it) for me to provide alternatives for them to use. We have to bring food to everything we do and it gets really expensive for some things, especially since a lot of places won't give you any kind of break for not utilizing the food provided

this is interesting. Just a few weeks ago my mother sent me a letter from germany with an articel from the newspaper. They were talking about a doctor who finds out allergies and intolerances with "Kinesiologie". I don't know the english word for it. But "Kinesiologie" is very widespread over there. Well, what they do is: They have different glass tubes shut with a lit. So nothing can come out of these glass tubes. Inside are pills with the allergen like wheat or so. The patient lies on the back and the doctor puts one glass on his belly. Then the patient has to lift one arm straight in the air and the doctor tries to push the arm down to his side. If the patient is strong enough to hold his arm up, there's no reaction to the substance in the glass. If the arm goes down, the patient also will show a reaction to the substance in the glass. After they tested all substances, they open the glasses with positive reaction, take one pill out and put it on your tongue, to make sure, the result was right. In the article they didn't say what reaction will show then. But that's kind of amazing. Unfortunately i've thrown it away. So i could've translated it word for word.

The idea being that the patient doesn't know what is in which vial, and so the reactions are not biased. There are Americans that use this technique as well, which I have heard referred to as "muscle testing." Some people believe it to be a diagnostic tool and some people take it as quackery. I find it all interesting but am not really pro or con myself. But I am a believer that your body intuitively knows on some level what is and isn't good for it, so maybe for some people this would work.
