Body Ecology Diet for Autism, BEDROK Diet

Introduction

Body Ecology Diet Recovering Our Kids (BEDROK) is focused on reestablishing a healthy digestive system through incorporating various nutritional changes to your child’s diet.  The BEDROK diet starts by eliminating all processed foods and foods containing sugar, gluten, and casein, to help restore the inner linings of the intestines, provide relief of food allergies, and promote a stronger immune system.  To accomplish this you need to focus on restoring a balanced ecosystem in your child’s intestines by detoxification, and eating nutrient rich, easy to digest clean food.
