Hi all,
My 6 year old has had food sensitivities and stomach pain for the past 6 months. When he eats certain foods his stomach bloats terribly.

I have suspected the gluten free bread (with brown rice flour) and breakfast bars he has been eating might be bothering him and he was just muscle tested to show a brown and white rice allergy. He is not the best eater and it is tough to get him to try new foods.

Besides having potatoes every day, does anyone know of any breads or starches that don't have wheat or rice flour? He will eat yams too. Thankfully he can eat oats. He will not eat the quinoa salad I make. Maybe there is a better recipe. It is so time consuming to try to find new foods he can eat....any suggestions would make life so much easier!

Thanks,

tickbattler

You said rice allergy - is that to all rice? Some brands have additives in their processing so it may not be the rice itself, but the brand (as a friend of mine found out for her daughter).

Wild Rice is really a grass, might that work?

In addition to Quinoa and Red Quinoa, (and later on trying the brown, red and black rices) . . . Millet, Buckwheat, and Amaranth round out the non-gluten whole grains.

Yams, winter and summer squashes are full of nutrients. Cucumbers, carrots . . . a dip from yogurt, dill weed and a dash of stevia, perhaps.

Quinoa. Wild rice (it's not rice). Millet.

You might try spelt bread from a health food store.

Also google recipes for quinoa and millet.

Is he eating sweet potatoes? Those sit really well in my stomach, while white potatoes do not. You might want to alternate so he doesn't develop an allergy to white potatoes (they are a nightshade, often an allergen, but sweet potatoes are not).

What about Tapioca Starch bread????

Is it the flour or maybe the yeast in the
bread and other things he maybe eating that
is causing the pain and bloating?

Can he eat oats. Oatmeal might be an option if he can handle oats.

Starchy foods aren't necessary for health or a balanced diet. We don't eat any. Just lots of veggies and meats.

You might be interested in the GAPS diet www.gaps.me

It is a way to heal leaky gut and eliminate food allergies/sensitivities as well as addressing lots of other issues.

Thank you all so much. Yes, he can eat oats, but developed an allergy to spelt and millet. I think he can eat tacioca starch but it seems most breads have many different flours in them. I found some good gluten free bread recipes on elenaspantry.com that I'm going to try.

He can eat sweet potatoes. I am still not sure about the rice allergy...I will know better when I take him back to my electrodermal screening practitioner at the end of August. I don't think I trust the testing this other NMT practitioner is doing. She claims she is able to muscle test even if he is not in the room.

Yankeemom - I read the article about the GAPS diet. Thank you. It sounds exactly what happened with my son and my other two children. It is very depressing to hear that we have made them worse with the vaccines, abx and gluten foods. I had lyme and gut problems when they were all born, so I passed everything on to them. I hope my children can be healed. I plan to buy the book ASAP to learn more about disbiosis and how to fix it. It is extra tough because my children are all so young - twins ages 6 and daughter age 3. It is very hard to get them to eat new foods.

If anyone knows of a good doc to treat disbiosis and to heal the gut for children, please pass the name on.

Thanks,

tickbattler

I went to a great integrative meds doc in northern VA for dysbiosis - is that too far for you to travel?

If not, I'll find her name for you. PM me if you want her name.

She did not treat my son (he doesn't need it) but was always great with him since he came to all my appts.

Spelt is NOT safe for those with wheat allergies. It is a type of wheat.

What about corn? You can cook with the whole grain or just use the bran. You might also consider almond flour.

Almond flour was a good suggestion! (Corn is problematic for some people)

Does your son eat a lot of beans? I live off of beans. They have some carbs, but they're also a good source of protein. You could make him a nacho/taco salad type thing...avocado, olives, mild salsa (if he can do that), etc...

Yse, I have recently discovered almond flour. This site seems to have a lot of good recipes, but I haven't tried them yet. She uses a lot of almond flour.
