  1. Do you have any tips on doing this with my 12 month old? I think my daughter is sensitive to dairy, she had eczema when she was first born until I gave up dairy and it went away. At six months I reintroduced it and she didn’t get the eczema back but she got severely constipated so I removed it again. I would like to wean her onto raw milk but would like to find out if she is still sensitive.
    Thanks!

    1. Childrens guts don’t seal completely until they are around 6 years old usually. As a precaution, I would leave it out and focus on nutrient-dense gut healing foods in the meantime.

      You can try using a stethoscope on her heart or back to test her pulse and a very good TV show that will keep her still for a few minutes. 😉

    1. It does. It actually indicates the same as if your pulse were to increase, but it indicates that the sympathetic and parasympathetic states of your nervous system are ‘flipped’. It’s one of the more uncommon symptoms of systemic dysfunction and can be corrected with a nutritional protocol. My recommendation would be to start with my series on healing digestion: http://www.20somethingallergies.com/healing-digestion-restoring-mucous-layer/ and start removing the obvious allergens from your diet while you heal.

    1. There are a small subset of people whose bodies don’t respond to this method (usually indicating moderate overall dysfunction), but this test is to show distress from ingesting foods. For those who are responsive, I would say it’s at least 95% accurate to show that the body finds the food problematic and should be eliminated for a time.

  2. Hi Jennifer, slightly convoluted question but here I go! My daughter is no 9 and a half months old. At 5 week, exclusively breastfed, she was diagnosed with acid reflux. I straight away cut out dairy, and the about 4 weeks later cut out wheat. I also cut out soy, though I’d been having v. little anyway. The mainstream doctors and many other routes we went (incl massage, homeopathy, herbal, craniosacral etc) didn’t really help and eventually I cut out oats, rice and almonds (the only nut I had been eating). My belief from the start was that it was food related – I’ve had a sensitive gut for years and never fully pinned it down. Since that point her AR seems under control – time to time I have a small sense it’s acting up, but v. rarely. She’s not a good ‘food’ eater (refuses most things), but she’s still breastfed and is absolutely thriving. My question is this – do you think Mama and baby have the same allergies as I sort of pass on my immune system to her? If I did this test could I start to slowly reintroduce things into my diet, and thereby hers? I’d love to eat a small amount of goat’s cheese!
