For anyone trying to improve their health by addressing what they eat before hitting the Dr. office I figured I would share a few links.

Environmental Health Center- Dallas

American Nutrition Association

Introduction to Hormone Disrupting Chemicals

A Community for the Chemically Sensitive

US Environmental Protection Agency
kills me from a political standpoint to share their website, but they do have some great information on pollutants.

The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network

Conditions and Cures LifeSource Vitamins
(not advertising for them, but their list of symptoms is terrific and shows how easy it is to incorrectly identify allergy,intolerance or whole other disease process.)

American Gastroenterological Society (lots of great information here, I always recommend a second opinion for GI issues- Abby's first GI was shocked she did not have a tube simply because of her diagnosis in combo with scary labs and weight loss, the second GI we saw was less worried about her neuro diagnosis and more common sense,(not looking for zebras first)and felt we had not explored all our options yet and was very supportive of us steering clear of interventions- you have to find the right fit.)

Leaky Gut, lots of links so I will just add a couple below,

What is Leaky Gut?

Leaky Gut Syndrome, Intestinal Permeability

Finally- When Abby was little she had some serious tactile defensiveness, and very poor facial muscle tone to the point she was very delayed even smiling. This made introducing foods or getting her to swallow a HUGE effort- we always thought she was just picky, or stubborn or sick- but we worked through it with the help of a team of therapists over a couple year period.

Picky Eaters
