Final Post

As far as I know my family is now allergy free. H has had peanut butter with no reaction. E has had everything but peanuts/tree nuts. I need to ask my pediatrician when I can introduce these. I am guessing age 2.

Thanks for reading!

what a wonderful story, and i cannot tell you how lucky you are to be in the 20% that lose their peanut allergy. somebody upstairs is looking out for your family x can i ask ?

I have recently written a small article on a rather “political hot potato”, with regards to children's allergies.

I am hoping that in my “Jerry McGuire- change the world moment” you would like to read this article and share it with 3 maybe 4 of your friends and so on.

Email as you know has the very real capabilities of sending something national very quickly, and this
My first step is where I would like it to go.

I just shrugged my shoulders in naiveté to myself, but on the other hand every journey begins with a single step, and if you do not try, you will never know. In realistic terms I just want to offset the potential fallout equivalent to the viewing power of the footy show last week, of which the statistics of viewers I do not know.

To get the full context of my article, you can go to and click on the link “kid getting weaker”
It is offensive and does play loud so be cautious of your environment when you listen. This segment was modified and heavily edited for TV broadcasting by the NRL footy show, but the content aired was much the same only without the swearing.

The link to my article is

to recommend it would be fabulous as the more attention it attracts, the story might be picked up by CNN as current news, this process is anonymous unless you choose to share it through Facebook too, then your name will appear.

if you have any questions, please contact me

yours in friendship and unity

Thanks Ruby. We were fortunate not to have a peanut allergy. Only milk and eggs. However, we were peanut free as a precaution.

Big, huge congrats! My son's doctor had him wait until 3 y.o. to try peanuts....and he's allergic, of course. In your case, sounds like just a very sensible precaution. I wish you all the best!
