    Wow that's tough Jenn. Could it be as simple as the sugar in his diet? Has he been tested for diabetes? Could it be an allergy to dairy? I think you will have to be a tough detective for him just like you've been for yourself. I agree with marcadav that medicating would personally be my absolute last resort (& even then the benefits would have to out way the risks)...after I investigated all the allergy things. You may not be able to control everything but you can certainly demand that those around him help you in safeguarding his health! What if he DID have diabetes...would his grandparents give him sugary treats knowing it could harm him? Same difference. There are plenty of paleo/primal parents out there that are raising kids on the paleo path. Would it be a challenge? Yup. Just like its a challenge for you to follow but you do it knowing it's the best for your health.

    Then again could it just be a "phase" he's going thru? Maybe all that's needed is a little firm guidance...no video games etc until you improve your school work...something along that line.

    Just my 2 cents...which is worth exactly that!

    oh Jenn -- you're in tough place and I'm so sorry you're faced with this decision.

    I know Brady is young - but have you talked with him about how food effects his behavior? Not the details or the stuff that he wouldn't understand - but the basics. "when you eat X it makes your brain go into overdrive and that's when you have trouble following the rules" ............ he might be more willing to work with you in making changes if he was made a part of the process. If you truly want to go the dietary route and avoid the meds -- then I think the whole family needs to be on the same diet. Its a horrible thing for a little guy to be watching others eat ice cream and he can't have any. You could at least control the environment at home that way. The rest would be up to the other adults in his life.

    That being said............. you are his mother - and you have to make this decision based on what you know you and brady and the rest of the family can handle. You're a good mom and you'll do what is best.

    good explanation of the gut. I never thought of it that way. I have psoriasis on my elbows that will not go away. I know it is an indication of problems inside, inflammation I suppose, so it makes sense that the skin is the last to be healed.

    Yea for the move...good changes in your enviornment make a big difference.
    You know all those things you wanted to do: You should go do them.

    I didn't stay home because of a bug... mother nature, i.e. Russian Circus, had me sacked on the couch. Pretty rough day 1. Researching causes b/c this isn't the first time day 1 has been such torture.
