He doesn't want to be held and spins in circles in my arms, but he also cries if I put him down on the floor even if I sit down next to him. He's having increasing trouble getting to sleep and appears sensitive to grains even if they're in my diet coming through breastmilk. Although we've been doing probiotics a while now and holding back on solids, the problems seem to be getting worse. Maybe we need to get more aggressive and add in something like enzymes. Or switch the probiotics. What we're doing doesn't appear to be working. Maybe I will surf over to Amazon and order that DeFelice book right now...
All of those symptoms you mention can be indicative yeast/bad bacteria b/c they produce neurotoxins. Also they compete with host for nutrients, which if you are nutrient deficient to begin with, just makes the situation worse. Also if digestion is not working, the amino acids that the brain runs on are not getting through.
