News Story On Add And Diet

Recommended Posts

http://www.click2houston.com/news/Can-foods-help-children-with-ADD-ADHD/-/1735978/8474254/-/b70s0u/-/index.html

I just saw this video on a Houston news channel. My dd was just diagnosed with ADD and started on a med. Of course she is gluten-free, but she isn't soy free or dairy free. The meds have really helped her though and she might have a chance of passing 1st grade now that she can focus on her work.

What are your thoughts?

The GAPS diet alleviated ADD/ADHD and severe dyslexia for my kids and me. My gluten challenge brought ADD back for me. Gluten and corn bring my son's extreme dyslexia back. We do fermented dairy from raw, whole, organic milk without a problem. We do not eat grains, soy, or starchy veg.


Our family is transitioning off the GAPS Intro Diet and into the Full GAPS Diet.

Gluten-Free since November 2010

GAPS Diet since January/February 2011

me - not tested for celiac - currently doing a gluten challenge since 11/26/2011

partner - not tested for celiac

ds - age 11, hospitalized 9/2010, celiac dx by gluten reaction & genetics. No biopsy or blood as we were already gluten-free by the time it was an option.

dd - age 12.5, not celiac, has Tourette's syndome

both kids have now-resolved attention issues.
