Baby Alec's Moving Story
Severe Food Allergies

Hi, My name is Michelle Buchanan. I am a mother of 4 children aged 7, 5, 3, & 13 months. My youngest child, Alec, was diagnosed with
food allergies to wheat, nuts, dairy, soy, egg & some fruits in August 2003, at the age of 5 months. We found this out the hard way when he had an anaphylactic reaction to the hazelnut spread, peanut butter & butter that my mother had eaten & kissed him.

He started out with a rash around his mouth & in his
尿布nappy region, (which was not nappy rash). This followed by a vomit which was quite peculiar, as it was laden with mucus. These two things seemed strange to my mother & myself, but as we have nobody else in the family with food allergies, we never realized that these were indications of anything so 不祥的sinister as anaphylaxis.

He became inconsolable then, not wanting to be breast fed or cuddled. He just was screaming. This followed by very deep breathing & wheezing. This is when the ambulance was called. We figured out he was having an allergic reaction to something, but as he was fully breast fed & I hadn't eaten anything out of the ordinary, we were perplexed as to what he was reacting to. As he was wearing a 'bonds' suit, it wasn't until the ambulance officers took his suit off to administer ADRENALINE and PHENERGAN IM that we saw the full body of rash that had developed since the nappy change (less than 15 minutes earlier)
. As you are all aware, I'm sure, I almost needed treatment for shock & blood pressure by now.

We were taken to the hospital ER where he was observed for a few hours & sent home with a referral to an Allergist. The Allergist saw us 1 week later & did skin prick tests to determine the foods & other allergens that Alec was allergic to & an indication of the severity. These I mentioned above, with egg & dairy being the most sensitive. We were told there was a very slim chance Alec would grow out of these, as they were the most severe skin reactions to the 'prick' tests he had seen in many years. We were told to carry an EPI- PEN & ZYRTEC rapid action around at all times & use as required.

At the time of these tests, and the months to follow, Alec would break out in hives & get breathing difficulties 5-7 times per day, requiring medication, just from the
smell of eggs cooking, the other children dripping milk & wiping it not washing it up & he crawling over it, or simply sitting in shopping trolleys. My gorgeous son was becoming a cotton wool baby, as we could not go to shopping centers that had food cooking demos that may include satay flavoring etc. My life was ruled by label reading, cupboard clearing & explaining to my 3 other children why they couldn't have their favourite foods- chocolate, fried eggs, peanut butter, buttered toast, muesli bars, yogurt etc. This changed my life.
 
I needed to look for something that the main-stream medical field couldn't offer me, a non-drug approach.

I have been using Glyconutrients for 4 years. These are a supplement I take 3 times a day of the 8 essential carbohydrates that form the receptors on the surface of each cell in our body. These are what allows each cell to communicate properly with each other rather than them just running blindly through your body. We are programmed to get these from our food, but as modern farming practice is to green harvest all our fruit & veggies & then we over-process almost all that we eat, we are not getting these carbohydrates from our diet any longer, which leads to cellular break-down & disease or condition to present.

Alec was getting 5 of these in his diet, as breast milk contains these, but these were not enough for his body to build healthy immune cells & to turn his over active immune system off (because that's what an allergy is, an immune system overdrive. We are not supposed to be allergic to food, we are supposed to be allergic to snakes, spiders & other creepy things!)

When Alec was 10 months old I started to supplement him direct i.e.. not solely through my breast milk. He responded almost immediately. God was looking after us, as we were visiting friends who's 4
-year-old was eating yogurt & left half a tub where Alec could reach it........ & he did, 不知的unbeknownst to us. He then ate a lot of it (we made this 推論deduction by all the yogurt around his face, on his shirt & all over his hands!!) I just had a feeling that I shouldn't panic (which went against all better judgment I can tell you, as we had already had 2 hospital trips since August for less sensitive foods resulting in breathing difficulties) I knew this was a test, so instead of reaching immediately for the ZYRTEC, EPI-PEN & phone to ring 000, we waited...& waited......& waited ..........& nothing. NO REACTION.

I have increased his supplementation since then to
try & allow his cells to better communicate as wefound that a build up of foods we were introducingto test, still had mild reactions. I have not triedeggs or large amounts of cows milk yet, but I nolonger am looking at a life of panicking everyminute of every day about smells, who has touchedthings Alec may touch or about what my other kidseat. I now have no food restrictions in my house,we just observe common sense when putting these twofood groups down after eating them.

Glyconutrients have changed Alec & my family's life
