Internet Discussion Forum

The principle aim of this list is to provide a discussion forum for parents of children on the autism spectrum who are avoiding gluten and casein and other substances in their children's diets. We hope that the discussions will include practical information and tips on following a GFCF (etc) diet; scientific research and opinion; the latest developments in understanding GFCF (etc) diet-related health problems; your personal stories and experiences with relation to GFCF (etc) problems; information on what food is GFCF (etc) and what is not; tips on how to eat out of the house; recipes and tips on how to cook and prepare GFCF (etc) food; what vitamins, minerals, herbs and other supplements may be appropriate for a child with autism, how to cope with difficult diet demands, plus support for parents. Appropriate topics for discussion on the list include anything at all related to diet and autism spectrum disorders -including GFCF but also yeast, nitrates/nitrites, dyes, vitamins, minerals, supplements, dealing with teachers, friends, schools, outings, siblings, testing, etc.

Membership necessary, easy and free to join. Membership now totals more than 15,000 families who have chosen Dietary Intervention as a therapy choice to help improve their child's life!  Dietary intervention may be that one "piece of the puzzle" which will help with your child's recovery from ASD.

"DAN!" Physician List
Since its establishment in 1967, the Autism Research Institute has had as a major priority the tracking of promising treatments for autism. We do not subscribe to conventional medicine's strategy of simply trying "the drug of the month." Autism is not caused by a deficiency of Ritalin or Haldol. Intensive study of the scientific literature, and analysis of case reports from thousands of parents of autistic children convinced us that there is much that can be done NOW to help many of these children.

UK Support Group
United Kingdom/Europe
Support Group for any parents implementing the GFCFdiet in the UK or Europe. This list is unmoderated and unrestricted. It is principally to provide a discussion forum for parents of children on the autistic spectrum who are avoiding gluten and casein in their diet. It is hoped that it will also provide information and support to anyone who is following a GFCF diet either personally or with their children. All related topics are welcome. 

ExploreENumbers - United Kingdom product labeling
This UK website was founded to offer a unique reference point on "E" number basics, dangers and advice.
Information covered includes all that you need to know about E Numbers and their safety. From what E Numbers to avoid to those that are safer, this site tells all.

Publication of this website was due to the concern that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.
The features and articles are written by professional journalists and experts - who have a particular interest, or a background in this area.

Living Without  Magazine 
Magazine's primary aim is to support and educate readers with allergies and food and/or chemical sensitivities. This is the magazine you turn to after your diagnosis - after the doctor sends you home with a couple of pamphlets and a pat on the back.

It's no mystery that people with special diet and lifestyle restrictions, particularly those who suffer from severe allergies and intolerances, often feel unsupported and misrepresented. Many are embarrassed to ask for special consideration. We understand about all that. We know that asking the waiter about ingredients on the menu is not whining - it's survival. 

Living Without wants you to know that a life with allergies, intolerances and sensitivities can be a vibrant, healthy and happy life. We want you to use this magazine to open the door to living abundantly with your special needs.

This magazine isn't about minimizing the challenges of living with allergies and intolerances... it's about presenting the important truth of how good life can be, living
without. - Publisher: Peggy A. Wagener
