Pleased to announce that my son LOVED  the lamb and sweet potato curry I made today ..I thought he would reject change in his diet but I was wrong, he was obviously getting bored with the chicken curry !
I used lean lamb, carrots, peas and sweet potatos and diced onions and green peppers too and curry powder .//he ate it very quickly ! I used spelt flour to thicken the curry, turned out beautiful

Great going!  I hope this is the begining of a stage of healing for your son.

Have you given thought to removing all sources of Wheat Germ Aglutinin from his diet?  I ask this because spelt is lower, but still has some in it.

According to Dr. D' Adamo and also an allopathic MS researcher  WGA is key to compromizing both the intestinal wall and the blood-brain barrier.  The MS resercher implied we could wipe out MS in the next few years by diet alone.

I want some.  Now!     Anyway, I'm glad!



My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

I recommend totally gluten-free as well.  You can thicken sauce with any flour. Rice, teff, millet....it all works.

he doesn't eat much bread, maybe a slice every few days so his diet isn't so bad in terms of gluten, I wish he ate more fruits though ..he won't even drink fruit juice..but Im glad I got him eating vegetables with the curry ..I suspect his taste buds aren't sensitive and he really needs spicy food to be able to taste it ..he hates bland food!

She's very high functioning.  Aside from feeling nauseous in the morning and not having much for breakfast, she eats a wide variety of foods from all the food groups.  Even chicken liver pate, broccoli, mushrooms and stuff most kids wouldn't eat.  But not Brussels sprouts.  I tried - I was curious.  She tends to binge on sweets and crunchy snacks at night and then get the resulting second wind, so I'm worried that she'll exhaust her adrenals eventually (as I did).

If her doctor were to tell her that the BTD (or Paleo) cures acne and frizzy hair, I think she'd get on-board right away!

Thanks for asking!

I have always hated Brussles sprouts, myslef.  My favorite avoid to avoid.

Have you tested her with a taster strip?

Nausea in the morning can be a sign of low blood sugar.

Oh, and a piece of bread every few days is enough to keep you "high".

No we haven't, thanks for asking.  But isn't that only a data point for determining Genotype?  She's only 12yo, but I already suspect she's an Explorer.  We did the test out of the book.  Hmm, she would eat lamb for breakfast....

Thanks, Ribbit.  I used to be nauseous in the morning, too.

Low blood sugar makes sense.  She snacks before bed time, which spikes her blood sugar.  Then insulin clears her system of sugar overnight, leaving her depleted in the morning.

IIRC whole wheat is not an avoid on the GT4, but maybe I mis-read that.

When I was in my early 20s and really struggling with low blood sugar, I did a good bit of reading.  I learned that your blood sugar from dinner tends to drop about 3 a.m.  Sensitive people either wake up or start having nightmares.  When I quit eating dessert (including fruit), I got it under control.  I found that eating a handful of nuts right before bedtime helped as well.  But I don't have hypoglycemia anymore thanks to the BTD.

Actually the only ones they should ever consume is Spelt and Sprouted (not the kind with added gluten).

Wheat is not good for people with insulin/blood sugar issues.

What kind of curry powder is that? Some of them have nutmeg, cinnamon maybe even wheat or MSG in them. These can be addictive and not so great for your liver.

They have all the spices including the ones you mentioned but I find its better than using a curry paste thats full of canola oil and tomato paste ..sometimes I mix up different spices like cardamon, cloves, turmeric etc and exclude the cinnamon (which I love  )

Would chilli powder work for this?

I am a counselor working intensely with a client with Asperger's.  He is also diabetic type 2.  He is not sure of his BT, but wish i knew.  It would be interesting to see if a few additions and subtractions really helped him!  I got him exercising, and see some positive changes and weight loss with that.

i am not sure if you have explored the mercury 'connection' (cause) yet, but imo this info is a must for anyone with asd....

http://www.yourdoctorisaliar.com/id83.html

the boyd haley information is great, but the buttar information is incredible. he has outright cured a fair amount of kids including his own. apparently his 5 year old testified before congress as an expert witness.

i think the btd, selective carb diet, gfcf, gaps, etc are all good adjuncts, but the heart of the matter is getting the mercury out.

Quoted Text
try the BTD on any child with Autism because of the blood-brain barrier link :
http://www.autismcalciumchannelopathy.com/Blood_Brain_Barrier.html
so anything that interacts with the blood will affect the brain ...especially when most kids with autism suffer from a leaky gut.

This is on awsome thread.. thanks all .. for my friend with issues..


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!
