So we’re on the GFCF diet now. Which means we’re not eating any gluten or casein anymore. Gluten is a protein found in many different kinds of grains including wheat which kinda sucks but whatever. Casein is a protein found in every kind of milk including breast milk as well. So nothing with any bit of milk or gluten. Weeeeeeee.
The purpose of this diet is to help Silas. For some reason, some people with autism have this weird thing where their bodies actually turn these two proteins into opiates causing them to be…well…stoned.
I believe when Jenny McCarthy put her son of the GFCF diet her son’s language doubled within a WEEK! Oh my goodness. Something for us to try right?
So this morning Silas was downstairs and I hear him say “Mommy? Mommy?”. It threw me off, is Silas really trying to get my attention by using my name?? He’s NEVER called out “mommy” before…EVER EVER EVER. He just screams or cries or says “I help you” or something of the sort. I cried a lil. I’ve also noted a few other changes with his play and with his eating.
Is this the gfcf diet? I think so. weeeeeeeeee
