Last week I saw my 5 year old boy scratching vigorously his hands. He’s the silent type. Doesn’t complain much. Being the hands on parent I saw just how serious his predicament was. He had all these bubbles on the underside of his left hand on the first digits of all his fingers. What was worse is the web between his tall man and pointer finger was turned raw. Looks like eczema to me. Must be caused by the change of now going to school.
Recently school began June 2009. Of course packed lunches. Non-paleo diet class snacks. I had tackled that bread serving thing with the teacher. The other day they had rice cakes / puto. And the problem with his packed lunch is it was always a heavily cooked meat plus rice – digestively incompatible combination. One needs acid digestion, the other needs alkaline. Plus the meat is cooked – putrefaction.
That’s it. Lay down the gauntlet. I talked to my son. You want to get well? It’s all raw for you. Raw meat, raw fruits no idiotic food combining with rice. Absolutely he agreed, he’s itchy, in pain and miserable but doesn’t show it much if you don’t know him.
Very lucky, school got suspended for 1 whole week because of the h1n1 craze. I put my son on raw paleo diet for 1 whole week. Plus I let him use the airconditioner so every 2 pm he and his younger sister get a nap. More sleep, more healing.
It is Sunday and his hands are all very well. All healed. Rest works. Raw paleo diet works. The Filipino staple of cooked meat plus rice is all wrong for my boy. Cooked meat is wrong for my boy. I’ll have to do something about his packed lunches. School begins again tomorrow Monday.
