In June of 2012 a 5-month old exclusively breast feed infant came to see Emily Richmond (Yuen) for eczema. The mother had given up gluten, dairy and caffeine and didn’t use soap to wash him or his clothes. Even with these changes, the mother rated the severity of the eczema on a scale from 1 to 10 as a 7-8. The baby also suffered from constipation.
NAET – allergy desensitization treatments where received 1 to 2 times a week for 6 months. The eczema reduced to a 1 on the scale of 1 to 10. Much to the mother’s delight, she has been able to eat gluten, dairy and caffeine while continuing to breast feed. The baby is able to tolerate laundry detergent and soap now. He continued breast feeding and began eating solids foods without any problems. He has more regular bowel movements also.
After a few more treatments the eczema cleared up the rest of the way. He is now a healthy toddler.
