How can a book you've never read change your life?

My mom read this when I was a child in the '80s. At the age of three, I was having "behavioral problems", getting angry, crying for no apparent reason, just generally being a very unhappy and moody child. The various pediatricians she took me to said I was just "acting up", that she shouldn't give attention to my behavior, and some even suggested medication. I thank the heavens that I had a mom who didn't listen to the "experts"!!! She didn't be

I read this book for my older son, but after reading it realized my younger son had a behavioral allergy to milk. Unfortunately I am not willing to completely cut him off of dairy but I have noticed when he doesn't have it as much he has a ton less aggression. When he has two or three bowls of cereal with cows milk in the morning he'll react first by aggression - hitting, throwing, punching, crying, screaming. Without the milk he is much more rational and does not resort to aggression. This was ...more

This book went a long way towards helping me understand the connection between food allergies and behavior. It let me to the Feingold Association, which became a way of life for us, and kept my kids off of ADHD medications, despite a pediatrician telling us (when our child was 3) that he would never learn without meds. Very informative book.
I quit. This book is silly. I borrowed it because it was recommended by some wheat free cookbook I read. I have made myself read a chapter a night and while some of the symptoms of allergies are interesting the book is a sales pitch for her method of treatment. So, yes, this is my child. Now can we just move on with our lives?
I'm still reading this book and it's so fascinating! I read about this book in What Your Explosive Child is Trying to Tell You by Douglas A. Riley Ed.D and had to check it out. We are trying an elimination diet right now because we have come to realize that everyone in our family has symptoms of food allergies.
Seminal book on finding hidden food and environmental allergies. Written about kids mainly but applies to any age. Also outlines testing and treatment method called provocation/neutralization that we have used as vital treatment for our kids. Dr. Rapp is MD and is a brave, smart woman.
I learned a lot from this book. It is all about our children and their diets or food they eat and how it can affect a lot of children. It was a food allergy book and when we tried it with our son, we saw major changes within three days!!!
A wonderful book on how food and other allergies affect the child physically and behaviorally, yet straightforward with reminding us that these may not be the only possible cause and and various methods on how to find out if it is.
Great book! I learned so many things that I think can help my child. It really gave me a lot to think about and research.
