: : I decided to take Joe off the diet for a week to test for reactions and to tell if it is the diet that is helping or his therapies as some people have recovered without being on the diet. BIG MISTAKE!!!!!
: : He now has infection in both ears for the first time in months and he is on Zithromax. He acts worse now on the antibiotic than he did before he started it.
: : If any of you are thinking about taking your child off the diet for a short period of time - think again. Joe had his first bad day at school since he started.
