We use Green Beaver toothpaste.

 

We also will periodically use bentonite clay paste.

 

Good luck


In Topic: Bloating - Help? :(

I think Diane hit it when she said other intolerance's , after going Gluten free I found I had a corn intolerance and it made me bloat and gassy .... So you may want to do a food diary. 

Oh yeah. The corn bloat. I sure don't miss it!

 

I also find that MSM helps reduce inflammation.

 

Best,

In Topic: Snacks In The Classroom....causing Problems

11 December 2013 - 08:16 PM

My little guy (now grade 2) has had a rough go of it at school too. Glutened at least once a month. September alone had him sick 3 times. We seem to be doing ok now - 3 months symptom free! And this in a classroom that does candy rewards. (Don't get me started). He has had to become a bigger advocate for himself, (easier when they get older) and washes his hands several times a day. He is motivated :)  Norwex cloths are also great for packing in snack bags, and wicking away potential contaminants. (...and no, I'm not a distrubutor). This is the longest he has gone without getting sick at school EVER. (...and now I'm knocking on wood). 

 

I can attest to success with the cloths and frequent hand washing.

 

Best of luck.

Sorry to hear your pain.

 

In my experience, eliminating grain and eating wild game and grass fed animals has been an important part of my healing. I wonder how our overall health would change if we more frequently ate from the land again  - not the processed aisles of the mega box grocery stores?


In Topic: My Son Needs Help.....

Hi Brenda,

 

Welcome - there are so many stories shared on this forum that shed light on our own circumstances and help guide us. Your son is very lucky to have a concerned mom looking out for his best interests.

 

I thought I might add to the great advice given above. I wondered if perhaps your son is feeling as if things are beyond his control and overwhelming at the same time. As a teenager, I wonder if he might be interested in investigating the Paleo "diet". It might place control, ownership and confidence back into his own hands.

 

All the best
