Review for Feingold Association of the US, INDIANAPOLIS, IN, USA
We started with Feingold in 1977 when it was just being formed. Foods were very limited. We started for our three-year-old daughter and the change within three days was dramatic. She had never slept through the night even when doctor gave her medication. (It was purple and flavored!) Her personality improved and her agility. The last two I hadn't even noticed a problem! Later, when she was in school, an infraction caused learning difficulties. Fortunately, they were few and far between. We did this as a whole family and I discovered I had no more migraines. I was able to pinpoint the biggest offender, sodium benzoate. The newsletters and food guides are invaluable. Approved foods are so much easier to find now.
This must be an all-in approach. Not every other day, etc. In the beginning diet diaries are key. We waited six months before we tried any salicylates...didn't want to rock the boat!
My children are grown and very successful in their chosen professions. I shudder to think what would have happened if we had not discovered Feingold.
