I wanted to do a quick update since I haven't posted in a few days. I've been busy because this weekend my eldest son was in the hospital. He came down with Henoch-Schoenlein Purpura (HSP). It's an autoimmune disease where your antibodies start attacking your own body. He had a painful rash and his joints all swelled up. He was in a lot of pain and was not able to walk, stand or really move at all.
He is home now and doing much better. He's back to acting like his normal self, running around and playing. However it is very clear to me after this, his eczema and asthma that he has a leaky gut and yeast overgrowth. I've decided to start the GAPS diet to try and resolve these issues. I will order the book in a few days, when my husband gets paid.
In the meantime I've decided that for now is he not allowed any cheats. So even if we go to a birthday party- no cake or sugar. I'm also making it a priority to serve a cup of bone broth and a fermented food with each meal.
I'll be back to my normal posts in a couple of days.
