If you go to a alternative doctor such as a chiropractor ,they will tell you to stop all dairy. We did this for my youngest son who had fluid in his ears and the ENT wanted to put tubs in them. After 6 weeks of non dairy eating the fluid was completely gone.
Anyways, during this time our entire family went no dairy. We noticed within a few days that the hyperactivity in my oldest son who has ADHD drastically changed. He was no longer doing flips in the living room and making crazy sounds.
Then after about 4 weeks he had ice cream at school. Oh my. He was like a top that was wound too tight.
He was crazy. Going non dairy doesn’t mean just giving up milk. It means no whey, caesin, milk powder, milk, yogart, cheese.
We drank Rice Milk for awhile. Sarah Lee Honey Wheat bread doesn’t not contain dairy. Parkay squirt doesn’t not contain dairy.
Pop Tarts are
dairy free. You just have to read the indredients. Another thing is gluten.
But most alternative doctors will day do the dairy elimination first. I know that changing a diet is extremely hard and takes a lot of patience because you almost have to start cooking from scratch. Health food stores do carry non dairy products. Hope this helps.

getting married this Fall to a wonderful girl…she isbringing 2 children into the marriage (our first grandchildren). The little girl 5is quite “busy” and unfocused but not diagnosed ADHD. The 10 year old little boy has been diagnosed adhd and is on medication.
i do not know the name of the meds but could find out. both children are thin(genetics) and very picky eaters (choice)- the medicationthat the boy is on has caused him to lose his desire to eat and he’s getting too thin- he looks like healmost has an eating disorder (which i guess he does in a way). my question is to those of you with adhd friends/children in your homes- does anyone have information on “trigger” foods that seem to set off your children?
i know sugar and food coloring are typically linked toadhd, but are there other things we should watch out for? his mother and i are hoping to try to
managehis adhd (and his sister’s ) by changing his diet and getting him off the medication so he has an appetite again. any opinions, suggestions or even guesses are much appreciated!
thanks! lisa g.
