I'm so grateful for this site!  It seems like there are so many knowledgeable people on it.  I wanted to see if someone could help get me started in the right direction.

I have had *known* food sensitivities for 8 yrs.  I think that I have had certain ones for at least 20 yrs that I can recall.  I simply detested certain foods although my parents made me eat them.  Now I realize that I have sensitivities to them and that's probably why, as a pre-teen, I didn't want to eat them.  Anyway, now my 2 young boys (7 yo and 4 yo) have some sensitivities.  I think I passed the issue on through breastfeeding.  My husband has also developed a couple of sensitivities w/in the past 5 yrs as well.

We have seen chiropractors for 8 yrs, use homeopathy and herbal supplements when warranted and eat organic food.  We have tried a variety of things to help w/ the sensitivities but I think the best I felt was when our first chiro had me doing a homeopathic detox, acupuncture and 2 monthly adjustments.  The symptoms started to subside and I could eat small quantities of my allergens.   I can't afford to do all of that for the 4 of us at this point though and am now learning that I should work on healing our guts first.

I just started brewing kombucha and my kids really like it.  I do have to say that I'm a little freaked out about giving them my home brew just in case I didn't do it right or something.  ;)  I am also hoping that a gal in the sharing cultures forum still has some water grains to send me.  I don't know if I should add dairy kefir to the list because my youngest is having issues w/ dairy and his hands are again chapped and bleeding.  People have referred me to the Weston A. Price site and the BodyEcology site.  I'm feeling a little overwhelmed on where to start and with knowing what "too much" is at this point. 

If anyone can give me some ideas on where I should start and how much I should do, I would sure appreciate it.  Food is depressing me and I used to love cooking and eating!  Now I dread it and am worried about causing more sensitivities because of how limited our choices are.  Thanks for any help you can give.
