I've read lots of information on the
GCFC GFCF (Gluten Free Casein Free) diet, both for and against. If you're not familiar with this, many autistic parents believe that eliminated gluten (in form of breads or grain products containing gluten), and casein (in the form of dairy protein) improves the behavior of their child. As yet, I am unable to find any convincing proof of why this would be. It doesn't mean it isn't true, it could just mean it hasn't been proven. We've eliminated dairy (if you look through my diet category you can see the posts), and it has improved her behavior. Rather than literally climbing the walls, she's much more calm and has less explosive crying episodes.
1. Annie has many more allergies. The first allergy we noticed was baby wipes. We quickly switched to more natural wipes, and being new parents didn't realize all the options, but we knew that she couldn't handle fragrances or lotions or even dryer sheets. Everyone can get a skin irritation but for her it was seriously noticeable in the form of a rash.
EDIT: lol, did anyone notice my dyslexic mistake in labeling it GCFC? It should be G F C F lol.
