When my middle child was about two years old, we tried for nearly a year to figure out what was causing him to have foot pains.
We tried increasing his potassium, which took care of some of our night time wakings, but not all of them; and there were still the pains he would experience in the day time. I took him to a large children’s hospital after going through several ‘run-of-the-mill’ suggestions, and the doctor there couldn’t find anything wrong with him.
He took some x-rays, but didn’t sound very positive about finding a solution. I was basically told to come back in six months and see if he was still in pain.
For a momma missing sleep every other night and dealing with tears several times a day, that just was not acceptable.
I think it’s funny that so many people put down researching health solutions on the internet because I’ve had quite a few answers from there when doctors were not helpful. My husband and I hit the keyboards. My husband finally found our answer on an obscure forum that I truly believe God led him to, because we went back and tried to find it and couldn’t. A mother shared her frustration at not finding answers to her problem and finally figured out that it was dairy products causing her son’s foot pains.
Really? Dairy products? Well, we tried it, and sure enough, the pains stopped.
Voila! Eureka! So I made dairy free food for that child for almost another year, before being introduced to Plexus by a friend of mine who had used it for her dairy allergy and her daughter’s dairy allergy. Plexus cured my son of his dairy sensitivity, and we’ve all been able to eat the same food for about two years.
If your child is experiencing pain in their feet, give dairy a test and see if it works.
If it is a dairy sensitivity, give Plexus a try next. Because what would life be without ice cream and cheese???
