  1. Yep, we're looking at that, too. I know that food allergies can leach minerals and vitamins from the body (and even keep you from absorbing them in the first place). My husband has gluten sensitivities; it's possible our youngest has those tendencies as well.


    Believe me, I know that there are no easy answers. I'm just trying to put the puzzle together one piece at a time. Let's see...can I fit just one more cliche' into this post?



  2. I really wasn't offended. Really. Sometimes in typing what sounds witty in my head comes off as bitingly sarcastic...go figure ('cause I'm NEVER sarcastic in person).


    I have no problem taking my son to a medical doctor. Just ask my sons' pediatrician about the "are my son's toe nails growing funny" visit? Fortunately, we have very good insurance!


    I was just looking for some things that I could incorporate into his diet that would help him.



  3. I mean that my tiny son was limping and obviously in pain. We took him to the doctor and his hip was out of place.


    That kind of thing has happened a couple of times since then with other places on his body.


    I realize that there are "doctors" out there who make up things to "fix" and there are people who fall for it, but my son actually has a condition where his ligments are loose and so his bones go out of place more easily than other people's bones do.


    I was hoping that someone one this forum would have some knoweldge to share of a non-animal-based/non-pill-popping/non-snake-oil solution to strengthen ligaments for a veg 3-year-old boy.


    Guess not...

  4. Thanks. I'll seek professional advice. He doesn't have a ligament or tendon injury, I'm mostly just looking for a supplement or some exercises or an addition to his veg diet that will nourish and support his growing ligaments and tendons.



  5. My 3-year-old veg son has loose ligaments and tendons and tends to get bones out of place (as do I). His chiropractor suggested that I try to find a veg alternative to collagen to build up/strengthen his ligaments and tendons. Anybody have any suggestions?
