Since recently starting the protocol my child has become more aggressive. How long will this last?
During the awakening period, some children may demonstrate a greater level of aggression. This is because the sedating effects of propionic acid have been reduced or eliminated due to a rebalancing of the intestinal bacteria. Some behaviors may seem worse because the propionic acid was suppressing their ability to act out these behaviors as a drug might. Once on the full protocol, the behaviors generally will begin subsiding within a month or 2.
