Helping Children

Some Topics

Children Case Studies

You can read the case studies from listed on this page to develop an understanding how each child develops a unique illness pattern, combining the common elements of delayed pattern food allergy in different ways.

The illness may be mild and include nose congestion, headache, indigestion, flatulence, aching, stiffness and fatigue. The illness may be severe and present as intractable asthma, chronic diarrhea, failure to thrive, skin diseases, arthritis, urinary problems, hyperactivity, or learning disability. One child may have chronic nose congestion, cheek and ear flushing and a history of recurrent ear infections, tonsillitis, associated with infrequent attacks of abdominal pain and episodes of hyperactivity with temper tantrums. Another child may present with recurrent "flu", fatigue, lymph node swelling, loss of appetite and sleep disturbances.

The proper diagnosis of these mysterious illnesses is "delayed pattern or Type 3 food allergy". If  you are lucky and your doctor recognizes this pattern, he or she should suggest diet revision - perhaps beginning with the exclusion of packaged and processed foods, milk, and dairy products from your child's diet. With your physician's help, an ongoing healthy state could be achieved. If you are not lucky and your physician does not support diet revision you will have to be responsible and conduct diet revision on your own. You will need to prepare by studying the Alpha Nutrition Program and the book, Feeding Children
