Review for Feingold Association Of The United States Inc, Fishers, IN, USA
At 4 years old, our son was easily upset, hyperactive, and occasionally aggressive. The week he almost got kicked out of preschool for hitting another child so hard he left a welt on her back, we were beside ourselves trying to figure out what to do. We didn't want to medicate, but were concerned he wasn't going to be able to function in school or social situations in a safe way. We had heard of the Feingold Diet, but weren't sure it was valid. After some research, we found that it was supported in good studies around the world.
We decided to try it before joining the Feingold Association. We figured to stick with completely unprocessed, raw foods to try it out. On the 2nd day of the diet, our son stopped wetting his bed at night. On the 4th day, he had a light of happiness in his eye that we hadn't seen for a very long time. He also was calmer, more focused, and not aggressive in any way. The 5th day, his preschool gave him ice cream and chocolate sauce with artificial flavors and colors. He was screaming at us and physically aggressive. It took 2 more days on the diet to get him back on track. We joined the Feingold Association on the 6th day. The cost was minimal compared to the benefits we received.
Our son is now 15 years old, an A student, and an extremely polite and considerate young man. The last ten years we have seen repeatedly what happens when we broke his diet. We regretted it every time. FAUS has made our lives so much better, calmer, and happier than they might have been. And all we had to do was eat real food. We are grateful to this amazing organization for helping us keep our wonderful son healthy and happy.
