: Hello I'm new and just found this message board. I would love to find out where I can get information on the gluten and casein free diet. I'd also like to hear about secretin, does anyone knows if it will be used as treatment for autism???
I wanted to let you know that my son who is 4 has received treatments of Secretin. I honestly saw a difference...eye contact, bowel movements, clearer articulation, lessen behaviors..just to name a few. Actually he is getting an infusion this weekend. Some people say they see a difference others don't. I guess it depends on the child. But I know in my heart that I saw a difference with it..I can send you more infor... and I believe there is a book called "Special Diets for Special Kids" if I'm not mistaken..but I will find out. I found it very hard with that diet considering there are a number of foods that he eats as it is...Hope to talk to you again!!
