My daughter is 17 and had Eosinophilic Esophogitis. She was diagnosed at 1.5 yrs. She has had a Mickey g-tube since 1.5 rs old. She's also been on canned medical food for yrs. I recently started blending her fresh foods for her via g-tube. I'm using a homemade vegetable broth that consists of carrots, celery, onion, garlic & ginger. I use a crock pot for about 7 hrs.

I have also looked into Ayurveda. There are 3 spices that they recommend for dietary issues. There are cumin, coriander, fennel, cardamom & ginger. I added 1/4 tsp of each spice, except for ginger which I used fresh. Once the broth is done I use it as a base for her homemade smoothie supplements. In those I use raw & unfiltered honey, hemp powder, ground quinoa, ground flaxseed, ground lentils, super greens powder & hemp milk. She seems to be doing very well but we are due for another upper endoscopy soon. We'll see!

My son was diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis at the age of 18 mths, and his GE told me the count of 52 and 33 was the highest he'd ever seen. He referred us to an allergist and the battery of test showed that he was allergic to most things under the sun! With diet elimination and steroids his EE count was doing ok but I wanted him off steroids cause he's on a lot of meds for other things. Then one day someone who I trusted told me that they had had cancer stopped taking doctor's medicine and started taking ginger and turmeric pills. So I thought about it and decided that since my son never had any pain, I'll stop giving him steroids put him on these tablets and scope him within the year. I got the results of his scope yesterday and with the combination of a GF diet and these pills his count was 5!

I should mention that my husband is a physician who clearly does not believe in alternate medicine, but EE is an inflammatory disease and ginger and turmeric are anti inflammatory!
