E68: Revisiting Diet and a Bio-Medical Approach to Help Bryce's SIB

This episode is a discussion about our decision to revisit Bryce's food sensitivities, diet changes, and a bio-medical approach to helping Bryce with an increase of self-injurious behaviors.  We will be removing four food offenders (gluten, eggs, corn, and soy) as well as dairy. Bryce's testing showed no intolerance to cow's milk but there could be other offenders in dairy, so we want to remove it for now. The search for acceptable foods and recipes is a high priority right now. A God-send in the mail was the book "Playing with your Food" by Sarah Appleman. This book has many fun ideas to help Bryce transition into eating more fruits and vegetables by using game formats. I am sure we will be providing updates, since this will be a short-term commitment that could very possibly become a new lifestyle if we experience the results we hope to achieve!     

Bryce is a funny, mechanical, HAPPY little guy who was diagnosed with autism at age two and is now seven years old. His pure joy makes this world a much better place!
