The alternative path that we use is NAET(Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Technique). Sounds nutty, but we were desperate. The technique was developed by Dr. Devi Nambudripad, who suffered for many years from severe food allergies. I can only tell you what it does in basic terms, because I am not an expert, nor have I ever been into alternative stuff. First, the patient is tested for sensitivities by using kinesiology. After that, it gets a little beyond my understanding, but it basically is a process that teaches your body not to treat normal things as allergies or poisons. Sounds crazy I know, but one year ago, my child was sensitive to everthing...chicken, dairy, nuts, wheat, and about 40 other things I didn't even know existed. He is not now...and he is doing amazingly better. The one thing that we did try that was not natural, or totally safe was Diflucan. I had found many old posts from this site where people felt like the drug at high levels, and on a long term basis(3 to 4 months), "cured them". Some of the people had to try it more then once, because the level wasn't high enough. I found an allergy doc who let us try it under close watch. Bennett's headaches didn't vanish, but they changed for the better, and the NAET treatments started to work even better. Our next stop is Dr. Wright in Washington state. He is an expert in digestive disorders, and how they can cause seemingly unconnected problems. Dr. Andrew Weil mentions him often, and our doctor contacted him. We have also done stool testing on my son, and have found that he has leaky gut syndrome...This can be connected to food allergies. None of this in any way, is Bennett's cure, but it has been his treatment. Getting rid of his triggers helps manage his pain. I know I have left a lot out, and I hope it doesn't sound too crazy, but if anyone has any questions I'd be glad to answer. There is a NAET website, just use search.
