Our Food Allergy Mom Community - EOE Moms
Since becoming a Certified AllerCoach, I’ve learned a lot about the members that make up our food allergy mom community. Yes, there are moms of kids with anaphylactic allergies like me, but there are also other moms out there that are struggling with other food allergy conditions.
One of those conditions is EOE. EOE stands for Eosinophilic Esophagitis and it’s a disorder where white blood cells collect in the esophagus (the tube from the mouth to the stomach). According to Food Allergy Canada, it’s an allergic response, usually to food, but can also be to pollen.
As with everything, many doctors treat EOE differently and each case is different, but some times, kids with EOE are required to remove allergens completely from their diet. This is where us mamas bond because anaphylactic mama’s know the stress of removing food we once loved to our “no go” list. It’s not easy!
This week, I got to chat with an EOE mom who’s rocking it in my The Inspired Kitchen Membership. Her name is Suzy York, and not only is she an EOE mom, but she’s created a podcast called Caring For EoE (Eosinophilic Esophagitis) to help other moms in the same boat.
I had a blast talking with Suzy and I want to personally invite you to to listen in on our conversation. It was meant to help those mamas struggling with EOE, but as it turns out, there’s awesome truth bombs for all of us food allergy moms!
Check out the podcast here.
