About the Author

I am a mother of a child who was said to have had ADHD and have succesfully kept my child off of medication through diet. My other child had food allergies which caused a variety of medical problems, also combatted through this diet. When I had such success without medication, people started comming to me and asking if I could teach them. I went to grocery stores and raided paintrys helping to teach parents. I began getting requests for help from other parts of the country from both parents and teachers. I decided that the easiest way to help others was to make an easy to use guide. I have been helping parents all over the country via mail and internet, and locally I give free seminars at local churches, schools and clubs.

My degree is in Hotel Administration from UNLV. I graduated in 1990 and stayed home after the birth of our first child in 1992. I currently live in Glibert Arizona with my husband and two children.

Help Me Behave! is a guide especially designed for those who are attempting to track down problem foods. Corn products are the first to be eliminated in this guide. Most people are unaware that corn by-products are so abundant in all aspects of our food supply, especially in the United States. For example, if you brush your teeth, use paper plates, cook or eat in a restaurant, you are using corn products. It is the most difficult food item to eliminate. Studies are now showing that corn is one of the top allergens. After eliminating corn it is much easier to identify all other problem foods. The other products I suggest eliminating are artificial colors, sweeteners, and flavors, BHA, BHT, MSG, and Sulfur Dioxide. These additives have been suspect in a multitude of health problems, specifically ADD and ADHD for years. Fortunately these ingredients are completely nutritionally unnecessary. Every person's sensitivities are unique. An elimination diet is a tool used to identify which adaptations are necessary on a person by person basis. At times it can be very difficult to pinpoint an exact cause. In cases where medication is necessary, the best nutrition is essential. Taking out the products I have specified leaves only good nutritional options.

I am terribly unsatisfied with this book. I was searching for recipes related to feeding child with ADD and this popped up. Unfortunately Ms. Goodyke eliminates mostly corn products which are only one of 5 areas for my son. Due to sensitivities to chocolate (which is in most of the sweets) and any sugar most of these were complete unusable. I have reverted to allery cookbooks (much much better) and candida diet/recipe books (which are awesome for eliminating most common allergens). There is not even reference to alternatives for wheat, eggs etc.
