We have just started the diet today and my normal pain in the bum whingy 7 year old boy is already improved in half a day! I know its early days, but so far so good! ... Update one month later .... My son is doing well, doesn't seem to have reacted to anything however preservatives eliminated from his diet made a huge huge difference.

My daughter only did the diet as did I to help her brother. She has had a major reaction to salicylates, had major ear troubles when they were reintroduced. Funny as she is asthmatic and has had frequent colds and flu and major ear troubles for a long time - salicylates may have been the problem all along. - Sharon, by email
