Safe deoderant for Peanut and Tree Nut Allergies

My 9 year old (Peanut and tree nut allergies) started using natural deoderant (crystal brand) and has not had any problems, though we are now considering trying something a bit stronger and am worried about hidden ingredients that she may be allergic to. She did try Dove sensitive skin antipersperant/deoderant and she did say it stung her skin and could see some redness.

We welcome any suggestions. Thanks!

Where do you find good recipes?

I've tried looking on Pinterest and google but it's hard to find anything that doesn't contain the allergy food. Am I overlooking something?

local honey does not cure hay fever.

just thought I would start a myth busting post.

honey does not cure hay fever. so buy local honey because you like the taste but don't give it any magical cures okay?

Bees collect pollen from flowers which have larger heavier grain pollens than the ones that cause hay fever.
hay fever is caused by much smaller finer grains of pollen.
a bee may pick up some by accident, but not enough to induce any form of tolerance therapy.

it also does not increase in small amounts the… read more

Whos shares my allergies?

I use to eat all forms of fruit, boxes and boxes full of it. As a child I disliked veggies and meat. Then I noticed that I had a allergic reaction to Lici's, Avo's followed and then PawPaws and mellons, now tomatoes are becoming a problem.

At one stage I accidentally at a pizza with avo on it and it did not affect me. i guess because it was cooked. Tomatoes that are cooked are ok too.

The reaction I get is that I cannot breath. This is awful. Does anyone know what does these fruits… read more

Toni Bernhard Books

Hi

Has anyone read the toni Bernhard books? if you have what lessons did you take out of it.

They are a series of books on dealing with chronic illness and reducing stress and managing an adaptive lifestyle. (Sorry should have added the background here earlier) also please don’t judge the books on the awkward titles!
