Autistic son diagnosed with severe food chemical intolerances. Doing failsafe diet.

Yes my son was having terrible meltdowns daily, screaming with headaches, sinus, red ears, pale face with dark circles and lost heaps of weight. He has been impacted for a number of years also and the gastroenterologist suspected foods were the cause.. Been doing challenges with allergy specialist since last October. I always knew he was sensitive to some things especially glutamates and dairy. The challenges helped to really pinpoint his exact intolerances. Which were severe and nearly everything. Because I am battling also with autism. If it does not look or taste a certain way he will not touch it. So the whole family is doing it together. I am absolutely amazed at the change in his behaviours. I get no meltdowns, his tics have reduced and he has more speech now as before he was basically non verbal. I still battle with his sensory issues but he no longer needs meds for constipation. I have tried all the diets for autism nearly and have not seen results like this ever. He is such a happier boy these days.
