My name isn’t Sadie…it’s Sicky!


Well, here we go again. We are still eating no dairy and have been taking vitamins and pro-biotics. We added the wheat back into Sadie’s diet for 3 days. On day 2 the eczema started back up with a vengeance. She itched so bad, she started bleeding and has scared her back.  On day 3, she went to bed and woke up itching, screaming, and sick with a fever and runny nose.

No more dairy and no more wheat for this girl. It’s going to be an expensive and hard process to turn my kitchen over to a safe haven with the list of allergies she’s got going, but I’m going to take it as a challenge.

  • No dairy
  • No wheat
  • No nuts, especially peanut
  • No cinnamon
  • No sesame
  • No BBQ sauce

I feel so bad for her feeling crummy all the time and it obviously being because she can’t fight off the “bad” foods she’s eating.

I’m a bit overwhelmed with everything I have starring me in the face, but I’m glad we have finally gotten down to the bottom of it and can hopefully bump this girl’s immune system up to something resembling normal.

My plan is to do this for a couple of months and record progress/regressions and then take her into the allergist for a full work up and test for Celiac disease.

If you have any great product recommendations, recipes, or have been through this ordeal, please feel free to comment!

  1. Hey Jess, it makes me so sad to hear what you are going through. I know it is a LOT of work to rethink everything when you are shopping and preparing meals. We have a book called “Breaking The Vicious Cycle – Intestinal Health Through Diet”. A friend gave it to us for Mark’s diverticulitis, but he has since had surgery to remove that so if you want the book we would like for you to have it. It deals with celiac and other issues, and it has recipes in it as well. Maybe you can go online to Amazon and see if the book has some reviews. If you like what you read the book is yours. We will be praying. xoxo~Louise

  2. I have two kids with celiac disease, one has asthma. And my third child is allergic to cinnamon, and doesn’t do dairy well, although she can eat it in very SMALL portions. I have a few reviews on my blog http://www.gluten-freefoodstorage.blogspot.com of gluten free products. Whole foods or any other health food store will be your best friend. If you stick to whole foods and make everything from scratch you won’t spend so much money. You can grind your own grain (rice, bean flours, corn, etc.) in your blender and that makes it MUCH cheaper than spending $10 a lb for flour. If you have any questions you can e-mail me at glutenfreefoodstorage at yahoo dot com
