I have a friend who is really struggling with her 11 year old child who has all of the above diagnoses. Does anyone have experience with diet modification to help control these issues?

Thanks .

For anger, etc. look into a possible yeast problem:
Fast and Free Candida Home Test

Bipolar info:

I recommend this book:
"The Omega 3 Connection"

Happy reading!

I don't have any experiences but I've read that the tourettes diet is that you eat a yeast-free diet and take nystatin to kill intestinal yeast. I just like to read up on how to treat things with diet, but like I said, no experience with it.
