Toni began using the GAPS protocol in 2009, when her son Ethan was 11. "He had been diagnosed with ADHD, with emphasis on the Hyperactivity, and had sensory symptoms as well, including 'Auditory Processing Disorder' and 'Sensory Integration Disorder.'"
The family had already spent many years and too much money on lots of failed therapies for Ethan. As Toni puts it, "I had never felt comfortable with medication for ADHD, but by the time Ethan was ten, I was desperate. Either I was going to need medication, or he was."
In this essay, Toni and Ethan share their perspectives on some of the amazing healing that has taken place after 2.5 years on GAPS.
