I didn't know y'all were dairy free. Where have I been?!
In Dublin, silly...one of my favorite places! :)We actually weren't dairy free until about a year ago. Emma has suffered from eczema since she was a baby. Peds kept telling me she would grow out of it. Her 5th b-day it was so bad she had burning welts/hives on the back of her legs. I had a "holistic-naturalist doc" test her for allergies and low and behold found she was allergic to the dairy! Apparently your skin cells are made up from the same cells your gut is??? ...so a food allergy can definitely come through in the skin. We took dairy out of her diet and within a WEEK her skin was near perfect. Unbelievable. (My faith in western medicine and it's theories is getting less and less!!!!) Since Emma is dairy free, the whole family goes there to...and we are all much healthier - dairy is in everything and I don't trust the farmers/cows it comes from! Even Hope drinks almond milk and loves it....more calcium and more brain food. I'm one happy mama. ;)
