I went to the Whole Foods tour that one of the ASA mentors in our Yahoo group hosted. I picked up some great items, learned a lot and even won a $50 gift card. Not bad! Starting the GFCF diet is a daunting task and takes a lot of dedication. On one hand, I want to do it if it helps my son. On the other hand, if there is no scientific proof that it helps improve Autism, then why am I going to punish my son with bland food. Isn't he too young to worry about colon health?
Too many of our Autism kids have severe gut problems. I'm hoping that slowly eliminating and substituting items in Joey's diet will show improvement, at least in his constipation.
