Healing the New Childhood Epidemics: Autism, ADHD, Asthma, and Allergies: The Groundbreaking Program for the 4-A Disorders 
By Kenneth Bock

Most T1 parents recognize the rising numbers of T1 diagnoses, but none of us know why. Varying ideas exist from environmental factors, vaccines, and our food system. This book explores those ideas and connects the epidemics of the 4-As to one primary source - food sensitivities. Bock pinpoints food sensitivities (which are reactions to foods that can take anywhere from 1-3 days) and the body's reaction in the brain for autism/ADHD, lungs (asthma), skin and various systems (allergies). Although food sensitivities are not a cause of diabetes, some of the other issues our kids deal with may be.  

I have personal experience with my son that was diagnosed in 1st grade with high functioning Aspergers/ADHD. With the elimination of gluten (wheat) and casein (the dairy protein), I saw immediate results with the disappearance of his chronic nasal congestion, daily stomach aches, bowel issues, and headaches. Four months later, we had a blood test done that found other food sensitivities to eggs, peanuts, citrus fruit, soy, and oysters. With the elimination of these foods, I witnessed extreme changes in his behaviors: increased concentration, decreased hyperactivity, improved social awareness, and balanced emotions.  We have been following this strict diet for 3 1/2 years with fantastic results (no meds, no problems at school). Any accidental exposure sets off the behaviors for a day and often sends him to the bathroom that night, so you need to be strict with total elimination. 

It's hard to start, but gets easier. This book will get you thinking and open your eyes to how your body may react to foods that you never even considered. If you choose to change the way you eat, it will get you started. At a minimum you will be enlightened.
