WE BAND OF MOTHERS:
Autism My Son & the Specific Carbohydrate Diet
By Judith Chinitz & Sidney M. Baker
This book has simple, clear, step-by-step instructions to tell you what foods the diet includes, what to avoid, and what to expect when you "go SCD." You'll also learn about resources - everything from Web sites to cookbooks-that can give you the information and moral support you need to succeed with SCD.
Parents seeking help for their autistic children often hear: "Don't look for answers. There's nothing you can do."
But Judy Chinitz did look for answers. Year after year she searched for a way to help her son Alex, who screamed in agony for hours at a time, didn't sleep, couldn't stop moving, bit and scratched himself until he bled, and suffered from endless bouts of diarrhea and vomiting. She tried every medical treatment and special diet that doctors could offer, and Alex just got worse.
And then Judy found the answer she'd pursued for so long: she discovered the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), developed by Elaine Gottschall. That diet, Judy says, "saved our lives."
Judy shared her remarkable find with hundreds of other families of autistic children. In this book, you'll read the stories of many of these families:
stories about once-tormented autistic children who can now sleep soundly, eat without pain, play and learn, cuddle and laugh. You'll even learn about children whose autistic symptoms virtually vanished as a result of SCD.
Most important of all, you'll learn how you can implement the SCD diet yourself. Judy's simple, clear, step-by-step instructions tell you what foods the diet includes, what to avoid, and what to expect when you "go SCD." You'll also learn about resources -everything from Web sites to cookbooks-that can give you the information and moral support you need to succeed with SCD.
Sidney Baker, M.D., a co-founder of the Defeat Autism Now! (DAN!) Project, supplements Judy's text with expert commentary explaining why SCD works, what it does, and why parents of autistic children-even those who respond to other special diets-owe it to their children to give SCD a try.
