ha! Dh has a sensory disorder that has heavy oral and food involvements. While I could certainly feed him organic veggies... he doesn't eat a lot of veggies at all. Poor guy tries.. but I stopped asking him to try more after he threw up a cooked piece of broccoli all over my feet for the second time The only 2 veggies he eats on a regular basis are carrots (which I already buy organic) and potatoes (which I don't buy organic, but I could). I often say he eats like a toddler since it's so limited. I'm seriously so sick of eating the same thing over and over that the last two nights I have made him his own dinner.

I have made some calls about therapy for him, but I have been told that the likelihood of success are in the low single digits since it's been going on for so many years. Poor kid had to eat lunch in the gym alone in school because of it.

Would heating the flax oil ruin the benefits? I could find lot of uses for flax oil if I could use it in cooking. I eat ground flax myself, but I don't have a lot of options for sneaking it into his diet.

I've never thought to give him Vitamin D.. I'll get him a pill case and start adding in 5k IU (since that's what I take, and I'm not buying him special )

I didn't know that spirulina was good for metal toxicity... I'll have to do some research so he doesn't accuse me of trying to feed him fish food (I feed my fish Spirulina fortified food). Thank you for those tidbits Kelly, I will look into what I can find about the chlorophyll as well.


I'm so afraid to give him new supplements. The last one we tried was ALA... the first week he was ok.. the second week all his normal white skin patches (healed up patches) turned red and got itchy just like the rest of him... he stopped the med (not because we knew it was that, but because he threw a fit and refused to take any of his meds except the intramax). A year later I made him start it again... immediately same issue. All the skin that took 6m+ to come back to normal was gone in 48 hours. Now he's afraid to start anything new
