An angel disguised as a book!

My 10-month-old son began having horribly smelly diapers, losing weight, and becoming lethargic and moody. This went on for several months, while I watched my baby dwindle. For the first 6 months of his life, he was consistently at the 75th percentile on all growth charts, and that number plummeted during these months. We are so blessed to have a pediatrician who encourages a natural approach to healing, and she finally recommended this book after many tests were done to give him an official diagnosis of malabsorption with an unknown cause (though he showed high wheat allergy and failed to thrive on a gluten-free diet). This book has changed all of our lives! He is now 15-months-old; we have been on the diet for only about 2 months, and he's already gained almost 3 pounds in that short time! He's happy, silly, and so active! What a blessing this book has been. My 6-year-old son who's struggled with food allergies (milk & wheat) for years has also show MUCH improvement on this diet (dairy-free for now) both physically and mentally. I can't fill him up, so I know this is going to be a huge growth spurt for him (diagnosed with stunted growth). Words can't explain the joy of watching your children flourish after seeing them struggle for so long.
