It’s in the news now more than ever, and folks are trying to find out what is causing this epidemic in our children. I know there are different perspectives on the cause, but I also know there are distinct underlying causes that can only make the symptoms worse, and even stand in the way of the body’s amazing ability to reverse this condition in our children. But can nutrition help autism?
Autistic individuals suffer from a severe amount of something called oxidative stress, which is basically an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in your body. Further problems with methylation, copper toxicity, and enzymes not functioning properly are all triggered by environmental insults that have devastating effects.
Biochemical imbalances are far more sensitized in autism than any other condition, making it much more intense and difficult.
Gut health is also a huge factor. The GI tract needs to be healed so issues like malabsorption and yeast and bacterial overgrowth, all of which cause food sensitivities, can be reversed.
Most kids with autism are picky eaters and struggle with food because of gut inflammation and abnormal intestinal permeability (otherwise known as leaky gut). What foods can help heal autism? See a number of free recipes in my journal that you may find helpful.
Not long ago I worked with a mother who really struggled to help her sweet young boy, Grant. I was honored to be her guide. Today, Grant is better able to communicate with others, repetitive behaviors have reduced dramatically, his ability to focus is much better, and he is now able to enjoy more foods.
Autism can be healed with dietary and nutrient therapy! I have seen it happen many times, let me show you how.

“Today we are over two years into our healing journey and continue to run lab work, change and improve Rex’s diet, administer supplements and have a neuroplasticity program in place.

We still have a way to go but Rex is healing and shedding his symptoms of autism.”
