I’d say take your main interest & dive-in.

Doing something with his hands is definitely working for him. The most he likes working with wood (chopping, sawing, building) and electrics. Anything he can be exact and precise.

Recently I made the commitment to go strict carnivore (meat, salt, and water, NOTHING else), and my daughter is doing better than I've ever seen her -- WITHOUT any of her medications! Carnivore is also known to help people with things like bi-polar and schizophrenia. As long as this keeps working, we are in it for the long haul. I LOVE having her happy and 'present.' We've been through some really bad spells over the last six or seven years; there were times when she was like a zombie (except, a screaming shrieking zombie), and there have been times when I really thought I was going to lose her, she was so sick. Doctors did all kinds of tests and couldn't come up with anything. The AIP (Auto Immune Protocol) diet helped somewhat, and keeping our sugar and carb consumption low helped somewhat, but it seems like most plant foods, even small amounts of seasonings such as garlic powder, cause problems for her. Also, chicken eggs and cow dairy products cause problems for her. I'm hopeful that duck egg yolks will be okay, and yogurt or kefir made from goat milk (unsweetened); we'll find out next spring on that. But definitely strict or 'clean' carnivore really does work.

With that area being close to Cincinnati, Ohio what region is that? Appalachia? Midwest or both?
