meet our kids
I had heard about Feingold from a friend who put her two girls on it. She said that Feingold made them less grumpy. Grumpiness was not my problem. My problem was my 7-year-old who would fly into a rage over nothing. More . . .
…we were having so much trouble with Aurelia’s behavior that home- schooling wasn’t working either. In fact, living with a hyperactive, over-reactive, defiant, aggressive, anxious daughter had become too chaotic to manage. More . . .
Garrett was diagnosed with both Oppositional Defiant Disorder and General Anxiety Disorder. … Within three days [on Feingold] … after we told him something that would usually cause a meltdown, and Garrett just said “okay” … We were dumbfounded. More . . .
… she frequently fell out of chairs … talked a-mile-a-minute but never really said anything… visual processing problems, constant diarrhea … short-term memory problems, restless sleep, migraines, and dyslexia. [Her doctors] were in shock that all we did was change her diet … More . . .
For most of his school years, Nathan slid through the cracks. He was in a gifted program but performed well below what his teachers knew was his potential. [In 7th Grade] Nathan began taking Concerta, and while it helped reduce the symptoms, we were continually having to increase his dose. What’s more, in the evening when the effects of the drug wore off, the behavior problems accelerated. More . . .
The huge issue for him was always the terrible migraines. After starting Feingold, Joe says, “I didn’t have migraines any longer, so missing out on ‘treats’ wasn’t a sacrifice. It was great to feel better.” Moreover, as the additives were removed, Joe’s sensitivity to sound diminished. He was able to sit through a service at church, play the bass in a band, and run the sound equipment, too! More . . .
Ali amazed her teacher as she was finally able to sit during story time, fully engaged. Family and friends started noticing that she was bouncing less. In addition, she became night- time potty trained … She stopped grinding her teeth at night and started sleeping peacefully… For the first time in her life, our 3-year-old was able to sit through a full 25-minute TV show … She was still full of life and energy, but it was much more manageable More . . .
If he’s on the [Feingold] diet, Damian’s an easygoing, fun-loving, wonderful kid. If he’s eaten something that doesn’t agree with his system, he has meltdowns at the drop of a hat, becomes aggressive, and has problems figuring out how to get dressed without help. I know there is no cure for Asperger’s, but with the Feingold Program, my son fits in much better with his peers (and has actually been calm enough for long enough that he’s starting to make friends, too!)
