Using only organic foods will help to assure you that, in the case of a reaction, there are no complications arising from hidden pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, or other additives.
In the next two blog posts we will talk about the symptoms of allergens and natural allergy desensitization. Once you have completed the sessions the process of food re-introduction back into the diet will be much easier. Dairy and gluten have been avoided up to this point because they contain large protein molecules and natural sugars that are problematic allergens. With children on the autism spectrum gluten and casein are serious issues. When testing for dairy tolerance, (lactose and/or casein), most children on the autism spectrum may need to wait one to two months before introducing it back into the diet, unless it has been cleared by a natural allergy desensitizing practitioner. Gluten may take up to three months to clear from the system if not desensitized to it. If the allergy was known to exist prior to starting the diet then always be sure to minimize its use afterward.
Only use one new food every few days so you know which food is causing a physical or emotional reaction. This causes less need for backtracking. If a food tends to cause sensitivity now wait a few weeks and try again. Always begin slowly using only a teaspoon to begin.
Please offer this information to at least one person you know who could benefit from it.
