Some people experience temporary negative symptoms after several months of good results. These symptoms are called flares and usually happen after 2 or 3 months on the diet. They may also happen after 6 and 9 months but that is extremely rare for people who follow the Pecanbread protocol.

Some parents report dramatic improvements after the flares resolve. Are the flares a result of gut bacteria that have gone dormant in spore like modes and are suddenly reactivated?

The treatment for flares is very similar to that of the temporary initial negative symptoms. We recommend returning to the intro diet and blending your foods. Use Epsom Salt baths, activated charcoal...etc...
