My son attended her feeding clinic. They force fed him until he sometimes threw up. They said they had an extremely high success rate with children who didn't eat enough, like our son. When his time was up after 5 weeks, they deemed him a success, even though he still hated eating, could only eat pureed foods (a step back for him), had stopped talking as a result, and was still considered failure to thrive because he wasn't gaining enough weight due to lack of calories. He ended up having to go on a feeding tube, which was what we were trying to avoid by taking him to Dr. Eicher's feeding clinic. Although I don't have any concrete proof, I blame much of my son's behavioral issues now on the conditions he was forced to endure at that feeding camp and the directives Dr. Eicher had us put him through at home following feeding camp. (For example, feeding him so much that he often threw up, then having to re-feed him, just to get enough calories in him so he wouldn't lose any more weight). Having him on a feeding tube worked out much better for us and I wish we had never attended that feeding clinic or met Dr. Eicher.
