Autistic Spectrum Disorders

There are many opinions and therapies to assist children with any level of symptoms of Autism. From a nutrition standpoint, we recommend that the health of the gut be addressed and the health of the immune system be addressed.

  • Probiotics to cleanse and heal the gut are essential and may include the use of Glutathione.
  • Essential Fatty Acids to strengthen the cell walls, support the immune system.
  • Zinc glycinate to assist with cell wall health and organ health
  • Multivitamin/mineral complex with phyto-factors to insure the tools for healing
  • D3 a vital player in the total brain, immune and over-all health picture

All these nutrients assist the body including the brain in healing and working better.

A diet that eliminates all refined carbohydrates, simple sugars and any chemicals such as food coloring, flavorings, BHA, BHT, Nitrates and Nitrites, and sulfates. Sufficient protein is essential as well as a well balanced diet with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetable.

Rotating the diet, chewing food throughly, helps get a wider variety of nutrients into the body and chewing helps the nutrients get to the cellular level and be used properly.

All these need areas and more to be addressed. This is just a start but a very important start.
