I don"t undertand how my son can do so well and then forget or lose what he"s learned. This roller coaster is getting old. I will always try to help my son in any way. He is the light of our life(my husband, our 5 year old daurghter, and myself).If anyone has any idea of why he goes from good to bad to good to bad please responed or e-mail me.Right now he takes the following daily:

: It seems that most all the kids do this yet some have a smoother time. The special diets can help smooth things out. The suplements are working by healing the brain and the 'innards'which we don't see and can't always see outward signs of. The brain needs to grow more or new neurons, and that is possible. Med. science has now change 'it's' mind, where they sed to say brain tissues doesn't regenerate, they have now, in research, proved that wrong. Surprising to me is that the more you teach then, even if it's over and over...they're somewhat like Alzhiemer's in that...that this is exercise to the brain and causes it to grow more neurons which are needed for processing. Some f the kids brains have incomplet neurons, interrupted in process of growing. Some of them don't have the protective myelin sheath around the erves, same reason. This is what your special diets and supplements and vitamins is helping, providing material for the brain to clear itself of toxins that can stop neuronal growth and providing the material needed for building, re-growth or new growth. Keep seeking out new protocols, keep getting educational therapies and realize, pleas, that there's lots, MILLIONS of 'us' in the same battle. It's our grandkids I'm fighting this disease-disorder 'for'. Yes, any therapies get tiresome. Dr. Brastreet says it's IDEAL to have a smooth ascent but Lisa Lewis says it's usually 2 steps forward and 3 back. Hg in there and resolve to keep going until it becomes 'routine' to give therapeutics to your child...it can and will be that way the same as treating any other disorder-disease in which a particular protocol is required. God Bless, Grandma Peg
Thank you grandma Peg for your responce. I am looking at the GF/CF diet but feel a little bit overwhelmed and afraid that I will mess up. Are there certain foods that you buy that are easy to find (especially snacks and lunch). If I knew what type of flour to use to make gravy that would help with supper. I cook alot of meat in gravy.Well, I am trying to get ideas so that maybe this diet will be a success for my son as it has for so many others. Thanks again for writting. I read alot of your responces to others-you seem to know alot.
