CONSULTATIONS FOR ASD CHILDREN/ADULTS

I use dietary and nutritional therapy to support children with or without autism. I do not use nutritional therapy or any other therapy to TREAT autism or any other condition. Registered Nutritional Therapists do not TREAT any condition: they support the functions of the body through the application of nutrition science in order to promote health”

Some doctors and scientists believe that autism is what happens as a result of malfunctioning in a child’s biochemistry. This usually involves problems with detoxification (removal of toxins from the body); nutritional deficiencies, gut problems, and immune system problems. The underlying conditions can be identified through scientific testing and supported through dietary and nutritional means.

I advise parents to be aware that during the initial consultation(s) we shall be discussing: –

  • How to trial/implement a gluten-free and casein-free diet. A diagnostic laboratory test is available to ascertain the need for this type of diet.
  • How to remove additives, sugar, processed foods and drinks from the diet.
  • Diagnostic laboratory testing.
  • The use of nutritional supplements, and which ones to start with first.

I strongly recommend parents read Dr. Jacquelyn McCandless’ book, Children with Starving Brains – A Medical Treatment Guide for Autistic Spectrum Disorders, 2nd edition, ISBN 1-883647-10-X. Dr. McCandless is one of the leading nutritional doctors in the United States and is supporting her own granddaughter under a nutritional protocol. This book is written for parents so they can understand and collaborate with the nutritional protocol. Buy it here.

Another excellent book (and probably an easier read) is ‘Healing the New Childhood Epidemics’
by Kenneth Bock M.D.
