What happens when food becomes the enemy? When my daughter, Ella, broke out in hives at a family outing, we thought it was due to her aunt’s dog, Dolly – but we were wrong. This was the start of a journey that took us from simply avoiding certain allergens to an in-depth exploration of gut health, diet, and supplements. We’ve navigated through a sea of uncertainty, changed diets, underwent tests, and sought professional help – all in the quest to understand Ella’s condition. Our quest led us to health coach Cynthia Mathes, who helped shine a light on Ella’s complex condition. 

Listen in, as Ella and I discuss her experiences navigating food allergies, including an incident that cut short a 6-hour snorkeling trip due to an allergic reaction. Discover how Ella navigated the challenge of avoiding multiple foods for six months following her MRT Panel results, and the supplements she’s taking to manage her allergies. 

With Cynthia’s guidance, we’ve seen significant improvements in Ella’s health, managed her seasonal allergies, and learned the importance of gut health. This enlightening conversation provides valuable insights for anyone dealing with similar child health issues.
