I have my son on The Gut and Psychology Syndrome Diet (GAPS Diet). This Diet is a natural treatment helping with the following conditions: Autism, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, A.D.D, A.D.H.D, Depression and Schizophrenia. It also promotes a healthy immune system. The food chosen for this diet helps babies and children to develop a strong immune system, as most children with Autism show a marked decline in “normal” brain function following vaccination.
As my brother is Autistic, I thought I would follow this diet to pre-empt any genetic psychological disturbances, as aside from my Autistic Brother, I have members of my family with Depressive Disorders and Anxiety Disorders. I will include a link of the schedule that I followed when introducing bubby to solids, and various different recipes.
