Elisabeth and her daughter Valerie are on today’s episode talking about dealing intolerances and multiple allergies including gluten, dairy, nuts, raw carrot, beef and lamb. It hasn’t been an easy road for Mum Elisabeth both with her own intolerances and managing Valerie’s allergies. Early in Valerie’s life it was about fighting for her health, figuring out what the allergen triggers were and how to keep her nourished. The doctors were very concerned in the beginning but Elisabeth didn’t give up!
Valerie is 12 years old now and loving school and all the normal stuff kids get up to. Some things she finds difficult [go to 11:00 – 18:22] but as Elisabeth has taught her, it’s about focusing on the wins and learning how to overcome challenges [27:40]. I share some of my experiences too, telling Valerie how I faced some of my allergy fears when I was her age.
Check out her comic below. It’s the story of her ice cream allergy win! Go to 31:08 to listen to her story.
