: : 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???
: Hi Sophie,
: 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!!
: Good Luck!!!
Maria; did you talked to your doctor about this diet or did you just went ahead and did it your self? my daughter has autism and we order two books about the diet.
