My 5 1/2-year-old daughter Claire has been on the elimination diet for 2 months with amazing results. The main reason for doing the elimination was her bed wetting, and after about 5 weeks we saw a marked improvement (but not yet cure), also, she had stopped her ceaseless empty chatter, her cradle cap (she has had it since starting solids!) has pretty much gone, the dermatitis on her back has gone, her drawing has changed from a dark blue or black scribble to colourful age appropriate drawings of recognisable objects, and she has overnight (it seems) learnt to read! - from the failsafe groups.

See illustrations, the blue one was done a few days after the 'normal' one, while she was reacting to too many flavours in too many 'treats'
