What role does food play in overall autism recovery? You may have heard of the staple gluten free/casein free diet (GF/CF), but there’s much more to it than that. Food and nutrition matter greatly for those with autism and in overall autism recovery.
The definition of recovery is to regain health! Food is medicine that helps us regain and keep our health.
Please listen to my radio show interview (show #36), with Julie Matthews, author of Nourishing Hope for Autism Recovery.
In show #36 we answer the questions:
1) Why does food matter for autism? 
2) How does a parent get started with this approach of following a special diet?
3) What factors most influence one’s effectiveness and success, (i.e roadblocks to avoid and tips for success)?
4) What are some reasons behind picky eating, and some approached to help break through?
Note: show #36 will be in the show archives about 48 hours after the show airs live, (aired live April 9th).

For those already doing something with diet/nutrition:

1) How do you know when it’s time to further refine/change one’s diet approach, (beyond the “starter” GFCF or GAPS)?
2) What other food factors does one need to know about and consider? Let’s talk about Salicylates, Oxalates, Phenols and other things we’ve been hearing about with these diets.
