In Topic: Has Anyone Eliminated Food With Dyes(Yellow#5, 6 Etc).....

21 December 2012 - 06:33 AM

The feingold diet also eliminates sals, msg, and hfcs. That's interesting about food additives and celiac. What made you test for celiac? Did you test after doing the elimination diet? The reason I'm asking is my son had a rash that spread while we were eliminating additives. He had the
rash for five years(dx as eczema, dermatitis, etc)
and the only treatment that helped was
eliminating gluten! The rash was gone in two
weeks!! I had him tested for celiac (tTG IGA)
and he was just under the weak positive(so it was negative)...but
we had been gluten free for two weeks (...I'm thinking we were actually eating alot less gluten because of feingold. No crackers, only cereal that was approved was a gluten free brand).

In Topic: Strange Bumps?

Any opinions as to what these bumps are?? They do not itch, and do not seem to bother him. I thought they could possibly be molluscum contagiosum but I'm not sure. Looking at pictures of molluscum contagiosum the bumps (warts) seem to be raised up alot more than the bumps on my son. Also, the bumps do not have dimples like described in molluscum.

Pre-feingold my twins(boys) were getting comments sent home about inattention, forgetting homework, talking, etc. After 6 weeks (6-8 weeks of detox) my boys both made AB honor roll and no bad comments from teachers! At home I noticed less hyper behavior, they were just calm and focused! I also have a 4 year old boy....here is the true test ;) I noticed changes with him quicker. Before starting, he would want to stay up all night, argue with everything, angry with everything, fight with his brothers, hit, huge meltdowns over small things, and temper tantrums everyday. Those are all gone....well, he still irrataes his brothers but I think that's the "little brother duty" ;) I decided to
let them all have unapproved candy from trick or treating....wow, big mistake for me! The days
following this "great tradgity" were awful and more noticeable in my youngest. He started the throwing his self on the floor kicking and screaming tantrums over nothing, couldn't take "no" for an answer, and hitting again. This lasted a week.....I'll never do that again! :)

Have you heard of the feingold diet? Dr Feingold did a study on the negative effects food dyes, artificial flavorings and preservatives had on childrens behavior. Google it! I can really see postive behavior changes in my children since we ordered the materials and began the diet! Ive even tested it back in and the old behavior comes right back. I'm also pretty certain that by "eating clean" it helped lead us to the trigger behind my son's rash(which he had for five years and it spread after starting feingold....but healed going gluten free).
