Low Thiol Diet
Cysteine is an essential amino acid and helpful for many body processes including (along with glycine and glutamic acid, the formation of glutathione (essential for detox). Sulfur foods are rich in the amino acids methionine and cysteine. Some children need to be fed more sulfur rich foods while others have to much free cysteine and need to restrict dietary sources.
Sulfur is a monothiol meaning that, when in excess, it can attach to heavy metals and “bounce them around” without actually causing them to exit the body in any significant amount. This creates some behavior issues and lots of yeast issues.
If you see a lot of hyperness, poor behavior, meltdowns, yeast, self limiting to sulfur foods, etc… this diet may help. Diet Trial: 1 week. If you want to try low sulfur diet, print the rules and add them to the menu planning section of your binder.
note: Bob's Redmill All purpose flour contain beans (high thiol food). I recommend substituting a rice, tapioca, potato starch flour mix, when appropriate.
