NEW A collection of letters from parents of "better children"
The Proof of the Pudding
To mark the 30th anniversary of its foundation the HACSG has published a collection
of letters and comments from the parents of ADHD/Hyperactive children who have seen
their troubled and troublesome children transformed by following the dietary programme
recommended by the HACSG - what the medical profession in general regard as "anecdotal
evidence" that the dietary approach to hyperactivity does, in many, many cases, work,
and has enabled the children to go on and succeed at school and in their family relationships
and working lives.
Between the covers of this A4 Book the HACSG has assembled the collective experience
of parents and professionals over a period of almost 30 years.
The eminent American doctor, Ben Feingold laid the foundations with his now well-recognized
Diet ,and subsequent discoveries have been built upon this. Space in the book has
been devoted to coping with the day-to-day dietary needs of the Hyperactive child;
foods and drinks to be avoided; Colourings, Flavourings and Preservatives to guard
against. A section on food-additives includes the much publicised "E" Numbers and
details of some of the naturally-occurring chemicals like salicylates are also discussed.
The Feingold Food Programme itself is included along with a selection of suggestions
for meals; another useful section deals with some of the food-allergies which may
contribute to a child's behaviour.
The Guide is intended to be just that ! No blanket remedy is possible as no two
children may react in the same way to the presence of a"substance" in their diet.
Experience by many parents has shown that "trial-and-error" can play a big part in
But one thing is certain. The whole family can benefit from the improvements suggested
in this book and there are unlikely to be any harmful long-term side-effects !
