My 2nd son is 7 and is having problems in school being
diagnosed as ADD. He has a history of GERD (at 1 1/2
would throw up at least twice or three times per week for
months). Also has had severe transient atynosynovitis
in his right hip twice. Also has constant strep throat
and is always complaining that his stomach hurts. I've
heard that children with Leaky gut also have an intolerance
to Tylenol - that Advil only works for them to relieve
any pain. Tylenol has never worked for this kid.Does this
sound like leaky gut and what are some practical ways to

This kid has not only leaky gut but the complication of dysbiosis and candida-related syndrome.
Take a look at Robert MacFerran's contributions to this BB.
If this were my child, I would read the references suggested about candida and get started at once reversing this. Much as I would hate to take him out of school, once I knew what to do I would take a year & do just that. He is going to miss more school than that anyhow and at least you could sent him back to school healthy. He would be unwilling to cooperate with what he needs to do to resolve this completely in a year IF he had the freedon of the school diet (beg, borrow or steal) to relapse.
I would NOT do this till I knew what to do.
One reference that may not be obvious in the archives is "Meditating With Children" by Deborah Rozman. This is the ideal age to do this very effectively and would be the single most important thing for him to do to help this work.
SO, the most important thing for YOU to do right now is to become an expert in this whole process. IF, you still have questions, after you get the above information under your belt (I would be surprised if you did not.), write again.
As he gets well, I would hope you will share your experiences with the other BB participants. Just think how many others you might help with his testimonial.
