Question: Now that the kids are back in school, it’s getting to be that time — strep throat season. I feel like they have it constantly. What can I do?
Dr. Wright: After reading a book by a doctor who found that eliminating all milk and dairy products from children’s diets completely eliminated strep throat, I started giving my own patients the same advice. And it worked every time.
In fact, the only time it didn’t work was on one little girl — it turned out, though, that she had been sneaking cheese at a friend’s house! Once her mother uncovered that little secret and stopped it, the strep throat never returned.
If your son is used to milk and dairy, getting him off it could be a struggle, but there are substitutes. Occasional soy cheese is okay, but I don’t recommend regular use of it — or of soy milk — because they contain too much plant estrogen for children. But most of the kids I’ve talked to seem to like rice and almond milk — easily found in the supermarket!
