An on-line support group for families who are either researching or implementing the Feingold Program instead of (or in addition to) medication to treat their children's emotional, behavioral, and physiological special needs.
The Feingold Program focuses on eliminating artificial additives which include the following: artificial colorings or dyes, flavorings, Aspartame (Nutrasweet, an artificial sweetener), the preservatives BHT, BHA, and TBHQ and certain salicylates from the diet and the child's environment.
This group is not sponsored by or in any way affiliated with the Feingold Association of the US (FAUS), other than the fact that many of us are members of FAUS. To get more information about Feingold Association go to www.feingold.org or call the office at (800) 321-3287.
This list provides the opportunity to communicate with others using the Feingold Program. Membership in the Feingold Association is not required. It must be noted, however, that membership to this group is not a substitute for membership to the Feingold Association which provides the tools to become a successful Feingold family.
There is to be absolutely no selling or advertising of anything on this list. NO EXCEPTIONS!! Members who try to do this will be banned immediately.
