    Its been really amazing, since I started looking into this and changing my diet how dramatically different I feel.

    Over the past year my Dr has suspected so many MAJOR things that may have been wrong with me, including cancer, pernicious anemia, auto immune diseases, and the like.

    Changing my diet, I feel like a new woman! My depression has lifted and I have become a much better mummy. I have energy again and feel ALIVE!
    i absolutely get it
    both DP and i have noticed that when we cheat we feel quite ill, headaches, bowel issues etc. If DP comes home with a big headache i know he's bought something from the smoko van at work!! poor guy can't hide anything from me anymore!

    Dr's seem highly un-educated on the effects of additives in food . Can you imagine all the people they could help if they just thought outside the square a little!

    You know i haven't considered it but i haven't had any asthma issues since we've been on this diet...and i thought it was just cause i fell preggers with DS

    my depression has vanished too!

    We are a few years away too The thought of it keeps me going though. I wish we had the opportunity to do it now while the kids are still so young, I think they would learn sooo much from it.....

    Sissy! LOL

    So do you guys mostly eat preservative free because of the health implications, or because you are allergic?

    21 years in the tropics does that to a person!

    Honestly, i really didn't know or care what i ate when i was younger. I had the worst eating habits and was just generally unhealthy. I also had shocking depression.
    When i fell pregnant with DS at 18 i started to eat a lot better (veggies and all ) and then when it came time to feed my son i looked into it more and just couldn't stomach the idea of feeding him rubbish. I looked into additives and preservatives and read the book "Nourishing Traditions" by Sally Fallon. It completely changed my life. Once you have the knowledge you can't go back

    Im now that annoying person that mentions additive free living all the time! lol My mum is the director of a childcare centre and she says im now that little voice in her head that won't shut up!! she's changing the centres menu so that there are absolutely no additives

    DS is quite a hyper child to begin with so i think he'd be CRAZY with additives. If he does eat foods he shouldn't (thanks mostly to MIL ) we do see a difference.
