Cheese, Milk, and Grains Update

Continuing on with our NAET treatments, the kiddo treated for cheese on Monday and milk today.  He can't wait to try "cow milk" as he always refers to it.  We saw our main practitioner today for the first time in about 5 treatment, as there are two doctors in the office.  I asked her if we could revisit grains to check for individual grains because I knew he had been weak on buckwheat from past testing.  She proceeded to test for every grain vial imaginable, including things like spelt, amaranth, sprouted wheat, buckwheat, different rices, different corns, millet, barley, sorghum, and others that I can't remember.  Surprisingly my kid was strong to all of them, I honestly couldn't believe it.  As she was testing him using me as a surrogate I could tell my arm was very strong and she applied the same amount of pressure each time.  Then she tried milk, and I literally had no control over my arm.  Not only did it go completely weak, but I was use to her pressure from the grain testing and my arm went flailing into my pubic bone and about knocked the wind out of me.  I just started laughing because it's so weird!  And mind you, I'm not a weakling either--I've been working on doing pull ups lately and have conquered 6 in a row =)

Anyways, the good news is that we seem to be past grains.  My kid even ate some corn muffins made with wheat and egg today, as he's been doing well with the pretzels and oyster crackers.  I can't wait to make him a sandwich made from real bread or wraps.  I still have a list of about 30 items that he needs to be checked for, and once we're through all of those we can treat for nuts.  Because he's been anaphylactic to them in the past, we need to treat them last.  Basically get his immune system in tip-top shape first, then deal with the biggest trouble makers.
