Gluten, Casein, Soy Free Diet on Food Stamps

As the cornerstone of biomedical treatment, the Gluten-, Casein- and Soy-Free (GFCFSF) diet has resulted in tremendous progress for more than 90% of children with ASD who’ve tried it. The diet can be done many different ways, ranging from VERY expensive to very cheap – it all depends on how much premade food you buy versus making your own meals.

We wanted to find out if all of our families could afford this basic treatment so we did an investigation.  What we found out surprised us all and we are thrilled to offer this information to the autism community so more families will know they have access to such a vital treatment to help their children.

This article is NOT just for those who receive food stamps, but for anyone who wants to save money on the diet.
