5.0 out of 5 stars
also for kids with autism, 28 Jan 2003
My son (6 yrs) has autism. He has been on a gluten & casein free diet for two years. We saw huge improvements. We also saw yeast, parasites and other critters coming back however..., a common phenomenon in the autism world. After implementing this diet (not an easy one), my son's BM's improved immedeately, he has beter eye contact, he suddenly started asking wh-questions (a milestone if I may say so), and last but certainly not least, he has finally gained weight!
So this diet is not only for adults with digestive problems. Nearly 40% of children with autism suffer from intestinal problems (inflammation, diarrea, constipation, parasites, yeast overgrowth, etc).
Before the Nystatin, Diflucan or antibiotics, please consider this miraculous diet. I am from The Netherlands, usually people who do not 'rave' about something. This is different stuff.
