Elimination Diets Suck. For Real.

So, on Day 2 of my kids health series we need to talk elimination. Ugh. There is just no easy way to say it.

But it’s important. And furthermore, it WORKS. So before you grab a glass of wine and put your head in your hands, hear me out. (well, wine is really ok at any point).

Start quietly taking note of all of the chemicals in your life. Dish soap, shampoo, hand soap, carpet cleaners (ewww), air fresheners (bigger eww), laundry soap.  You don’t have to change it all at once, but start to pay attention. Some of us are more sensitive than others. Those little tiny amounts of chemicals could be making you (or your kids) sick.

What about food? Packaged foods? Processed foods? Is it really food? Can you read the label out loud with confidence? Do you wash your fruit? Really, do you??? 😉 Do you know that the people that pick strawberries in non-organic fields have to wear Haz-Mat suits? not kidding here… Suddenly the extra $2 for organic seems like a pretty good deal, eh?

Don’t change it all today and stress yourself out. Just start a quiet mental list and think about what you could change without too much difficulty (while you pour another glass of wine).

Tomorrow we talk tests. The reasonably priced kind that give YOU the information…
