Posted by OCFoodallergy on Feb 15, 2011 in Support Group | 25 comments Just a friendly reminder that we have a very special guest this week (Wednesday) at the Orange County Saddleback Church Parents of Kids with Food Allergies Support Group meeting. You will not want to miss this incredible discussion. As before, we will be meeting in room 407 at 6:30 PM on Wednesday, February 16, 2011 at Saddleback Church.
This week, Georgina Seeck, who has been regularly attending our support group meetings, has been developing some very exciting information as it pertains to food additives found in our food supply. What is exciting is that much of what she will present goes in line with kids with food allergies and she has been helping to adapt the information for the The Daniel Plan as well. She and Dr. Supna will be planning a new support group called The Saddleback Rancho Capistrano Wellness Ministry, of the Saddleback Church San Juan Capistrano location. This is going to be some great information that parents should know and will hopefully expand our understanding of some of the dangers concerning processed foods and how to use food choices to help better reduce potential allergic reactions. Once again…you will not want to miss this evening.

And a quick follow-up on last month’s meeting…
I just wanted to personally thank Dr. Kendra Klassen for spending a full evening this us, educating and answering our questions. For those of you unable to attend our last meeting, Dr. Klassen is a licensed psychologist who received her doctorate in clinical psychology and came to our Orange County Saddleback Church Parents of Kids with Food Allergies Support Group to speak on the topic of how anxiety can impact kids with food allergies. In addition to her website Family Restorations at (www.familyrestorations.com), she also posted an excellent article on her blog titled “Helping Your Child Overcome Anxiety.” (http://familyrestorations.blogspot.com/2011/02/helping-your-child-overcome-anxiety.html) This is a must read post for helping you understand and manage anxiety in your kids.
