If your children or you have Sensory Integration Dysfunction or PDD, please read this book. My son has both as well as digestive issues and after trying diet changes with no luck, I literally stumbled upon this book and gave it a whirl.
YES..it does work. My son has regular bowel movements now, his tantrums have significantly decreased, his attention span is much better, his speech has blossomed and I could go on and on. Ths information in this book is verified (as I did a lot of research researching the book and sources).
This is a natural remedy to try and it cannot hurt you in any way. At the very least read it to understand about the leaky gut and how it affects development.
In the book she mentions her group on yahoo which I have been a part of after reading the book. You can post messages there to get information about getting started, anything, anything, anything. I cannot tell you how relieved we are to have found this book and try her suggestions. We had been to a pediatric gastroenterologist who told us our son would grow out of it by the time he started school.
You have nothing to lose. This book is well written, divided into logical chapters and you can start implementing the enzymes into your diet even before you finish reading the book (but I would recommend finishing the book).
My son did ok in school grade-wise, but didn't speak a word all day and acted peculiar as far as not moving his arms when walking, sitting with his palms up, avoiding eye contact, etc. I was afraid he would have a lonely life. At home he threw constant temper tantrums, wouldn't cooperate with showering or changing clothes or going anywhere in the car, etc.
I had discovered yeast overgrowth in a diet book a few months earlier and treated myself successfully for constant yeast infections, but I had no idea until I read this book that yeast overgrowth (dysbiosis) caused leaky gut syndrome, which results in neurological disorders in the young and over 5000 symptoms and 80 diseases in older people. This is the basic auto-immune disorder.
When I read this book, I learned what the root cause of my sons neurological problems was. Also, I made the connection that my lifelong shyness, attention deficit, low thyroid, allergies, and lately constant yeast infections and worsening joint inflammation were caused by dysbiosis and/or leaky gut. Plus my anxiety was getting worse than ever along with the arthritis (caused by anti-inflammatories). I bought the enzymes for my son to take with meals, but he wouldn't take them, so I tried them myself and in two days my hip wasn't sore, and by the end of the week my anxiety was gone!Read more ›
I was pleasantly surprised. This book is extremely well researched, has lots of scientific data to back it up as well as has real stories from people helped by enzymes.
As a result, I have purchased the enzymes for my son and am starting to see good results. It is good to know an alternative to the GF/CF diet exists.
the blood where they have important functions as well, promoting
healing, general well being and also having pronounced anti-cancer activity.... indeed enzyme shortfalls with aging are a major factor in cancer since enzymes encourage cell turnover and help break up potentially tumourous clusters.
autism, aspergers syndrome, add, spd are in reality conditions of neural starvation(except perhaps for brain viral infection....) and you cannot remedy this in any way except by improving the nutrient uptake to the brain and this i think is what the book is about.
a sunbeam is a world made cretinous by medical worship. parents
with children on autistic spectrum will greatly benefit by the information in this book and also themselves.....
drugs use by and large has long term toxicity issues that outweigh any short term benefit...enzymes and supplements are metabolically safe and give promise and hope for sustained future functioning.
