We've been the through the elimination process quite some years ago now. Best thing we ever did for our daughter (previously a tantrum throwing, oppositional monster) and our family as a whole. We are lucky in that we can get away with a lot. We actively avoid artificial additives but do let our children indulge at other people's birthday parties. We allow all of the natural foods but keep an eye on just how much salicylates are going in so as not to hit the threshold. Many thanks to you and Sue for all the work that you do. Without your books, website and forums - well, it makes me teary just thinking about what life would've been like. I am constantly referring other people to the website and the books, and regularly loan my copies out. I think I've helped a few people in doing so. – Tammy by email
