Leg and Other Pains
Often children complain of leg and other pains, especially at night.
Children's pain has often been diagnosed by physicians as "growing pains," a
nonsensical idea. Parents often have to come up with solutions for children's
health problems. Diet revision may be successful in alleviating this common
Muscle aching and tenderness (myalgia) are symptoms of food allergy. The
combination of abdominal bloating and/or pain with body aching and stiffness is
often diagnostic of milk and cereal-grain allergy. Children can have
chronic aching, stiffness and fatigue that is identical to an adult syndrome
often diagnosed as fibromyalgia.
Multiple causes can be suggested for generalized pain and tenderness. Food
allergy and other food supply problems are usually not considered. The
recognition that chronic pain can be an expression of non-specific
hypersensitivity disorders has been slow in coming. The acceptance of diet
revision as a prerequisite for recover is even slower. Staple foods such as
milk, wheat, eggs and meatare often responsible.
Some children have lost tolerance to many foods and only feel well if they
eat a small number of carefully selected foods for period ranging from several
weeks to several months. Their tolerance to food usually increases within six
month to a year, but relapses tend to occur years later if they eat carelessly
There are many ways for food problems to interfere with a child's normal
functioning and to promote disease. We assume that several problems
interact in a complex manner to produce the symptoms and dysfunction that we
seek to remedy. It is always necessary, therefore, to correct food problems by
complete diet revision using the the Alpha Nutrition Program. A children's
rescue starter pack combines this program with the Book of Children in printed
or eBook format with a 500 Gram jar of Alpha ENF, our complete nutrition, food
Brief Note on Delayed Pattern Food Allergy
In this section we are discussing delayed food allergy, not the more obvious
immediate food allergic reactions. Delayed patterns of food allergy are not so
obvious and generally go unrecognized. Allergy skin tests do not show this
problem nor do blood tests for antibodies such as RAST or ELIZA. Delayed
patterns of food allergy are responsible for causing specific diseases such as
asthma and eczema and also common but ill-defined illness patterns in children.
The tutorial, Food Allergy in Children gives you a quick lesson in this
important topic. We devote a whole website to
explaining food allergy. The topic is well explained in the book,
Feeding Children. Advanced readers will want to read the books Managing Food
Allergy and Immunology Notes.
