tkseeley's Story


Terry's son stopped growing at age 3, now on the Nutritarian diet, he is a thriving 8 year old and is the same size as all his friends  

My now eight year old son stopped growing when he reached his third birthday.  His skin turned a grey/green color, and his eyes drooped with dark circles He struggled with ADHD, Asperger’s, anxiety, and Obsessive-compulsive Disorder (OCD). He also has genetic MEN2A, from birth.  When his fifth birthday came and he was still in the same clothing he wore at three I panicked.  The pediatrician ran so much blood work it was sad.  Nothing showed except for a few enzymes out of normal range. His thyroid was removed when he was five years old as most doctors assumed it was from that. 

We changed our eating habits and went for healthier options. But a year went by with very little change in his physical state.  And then it happened.  He would lie on the floor screaming clutching his stomach.  He missed school because of uncontrollable diarrhea. Doctors were baffled. He was grumpy, irritable, in pain, and the size of a small four years old. I took him to a gastroenterologist who ran many tests.   An X-Ray showed a backup in his intestines, but that was it. I was frustrated.  I thought for sure he had Celiac disease but the blood work said it wasn't that.  Back to the drawing board while he cried because he was so much smaller than his classmates. The gastroenterologist suggested removing HFCS and Sorbitol from his diet.  I was shocked at how many foods contained it even when I thought it was they were healthier option.

Because I have my own struggles with weight and digestion issues, I watched Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead and saw Dr. Fuhrman.  I cried all the way through it.  I wanted to feel that way.  With my husband on board, we went on a crusade to change the entire family's diet.  No more preservatives, all plant foods, and meat infrequently.  We started juicing.  Within the first month, our son grew several inches and gained almost ten pounds.  His skin turned pink, the stomach aches went away, and, although he still has ADHD/Asperger problems, that's all he has.  He has an orange sash in Kung Fu, is interested in trying out for the swim team, and is the size of his friends.  It is amazing...something so simple as plant based foods.  And my husband and I have also had benefits from it as well.  We each lost twenty five pounds and my husband's ADD is better. We are definitely continuing our Nutritarian diet because we just never before felt this wonderful.
