We eliminated gluten from our sons diet and saw a dramatic change in his behaviors. If he comes in contact with even a crumb of gluten he is bouncing off the walls. Gluten can cause aggression, endless amounts of energy, frustration, lack of concentration, a clouded mind, and much more.
Guten is the proteins found in wheat, rye, oats, and barley. In some people the proteins in gluten are not completely digested, leaving small protein fragments called peptides. Certain of the peptides derived from gluten get through the intestinal wall into the blood stream, and are carried to the brain, where they have opioid activity--that is, they act like morphine!
A simple urine test will determine if your child has high levels of opioid peptides. If high levels are detected then your child may have difficulty digesting gluten. Eliminating the gluten will not only help your child feel better but act better as well. Doctors are often quick to medicate which masks the problem rather then fixing it.

how do you know if certain foods contain gluten, would it be in the ingrediants label and does it have any other name? It sounds like its worth a try tell me more

Wegmans has a gluten free isle that makes it easy for you. Your local health food store will also carry gluten free products. Other then that gluten can be a bit tricky because it's in almost everything. Any ingredient that contains any type of wheat, rye, oats, or barely has gluten. I will admit trying to figure out the diet can be overwhelming at first. Once my son started to show improvements I realized how much it was worth it. If you would really like to give it a try I can send you some information to help get you started. Just about any recipe can be converted into a gluten free recipe. I'd be glad to help just email me at [email protected]

We tried that and it did not show any noticable change. I think it is smart to eat a healthy balanced diet and not worry about gluten.
