I mentioned that he was a complete terror while on vacation. My thought on this is that it was a result of what he was eating. Seeing how we were vacationing our diet was not as healthy as it usually is. At home we eat a very healthy diet. I realize "healthy diet" can be widely interpreted... but there you have it, I'm not going into that right now. :)
I have spent hours upon hours searching for answers to Jason. We have tried many things. Things regarding diet as well as emotional and disciplinary issues. Nothing has worked.
Well, we are trying something new. A new diet. A diet of desperation. The Feingold Program, ever heard of it? We have not spent the $80.00 to buy the diet and join the website, but we are experimenting with what information I have gathered from the internet.
We tried a bit last week and had one really great day. Then things fell apart, but I have found information explaining exactly why. So armed with new information we are starting over. I thought it was just taking out all artificial preservative, flavorings and additives, but there are also the natural forms of salicylate which are suppose to be taken out for stage 1 of the program too. These can be slowly added back in later to pinpoint any that cause a reaction. Some of the foods on this list include apples, grapes, raisins, tomatoes, almonds and apricots...all of which Jason has been chowing down on most of this past week.
So tomorrow we start again with an approved food list of about 6 things. We do this for about a week or until we notice a change. Then we will start adding in other foods. It will be a rough few days, but will be so worth it if this works. Praying we have found help. All my eggs are in one basket here. I don't know what I'll do if this fails.
Actually, yes I do.
I know I will.
