Another Win

Earlier this year my son had a bad reaction to a homemade smoothie I made consisting of whey, banana, and an Indian probiotic milk called lassi that is like a thinned out yogurt.  Usually I buy keifr which is almost identical in ingridents, but on this one occassion the store was out of kefir so I grabbed the lassi instead. Both the kefir and lassi are cultured milk, but very slilghtly in the cultures.  My son begged to try the smoothie (which I drink post-workout), and after a couple of sips he was having an allergic reaction--hives and vomitting.  Technically this could have called for an epi pen since there were 2 body reactions, but his breathing was okay and a benedryl took care of him.

After that incident he treated via NAET for the lassi and whey.  Today as I was making my Saturday post-workout shake, this time with kefir and whey, there he was again asking to try the smoothie.  He had a few sips and we waited.  And waited.  And waited.  And nothing.

So either it was clearly the lassi (which had all but one different culture), or between the NAET and the NMT, and his maturing system, his body is no longer viewing these as threats.  Either way, we'll take it.


  1. Great news! It must be so wonderful to be able to clear him of these allergies!

  2. This is great news!!! Congrats to you and your little one. Positive strides no matter how big are small are truly blessings.
