Autism & Food: What You Need to Know About Diet, Inflammation & Foods to Avoid
What’s the link between autism and food? How do inflammation and healing the gut (and brain) factor in?
Which foods are best for your child with autism?
Autism can be a symptom (not a diagnosis) of many underlying factors — including inflammation in the gut, and by extension, the brain.
As a longtime cranial sacral therapist — and the mom of a child with autism who’s now a symptom-free, independent adult — I’m here to tell you that every child can improve their quality of life and have greater independence. For your child, this might mean improved sleep, mental clarity, better focus in a classroom, calmer moods, and fewer tantrums.
Autism is biological. Exposure to toxins, co-infections, and allergic reactions are creating inflammation that’s not allowing the brain to work properly.
Understanding the link between Autism,
Diet, Food Allergies & Inflammation
In this information-packed, video teaching, I explain the surprisingly simple ways you can work with your child’s biology — and reduce or remove what’s causing the inflammation, allowing the brain to function at its best.
Grab your pen and notebook and get ready to discover:
- How healing the gut sets the foundation your child needs to achieve their best health
- How the gut and brain are connected — and why it’s so essential to understand when supporting your child with autism
- Why mood, sleep, appetite, and behavior can all improve once you heal the gut
- The reason you might notice your child coming down with an increased number of food allergies and reactions
- Why gluten-free and casein-free diets aren’t enough
- Tips for choosing the best foods to incorporate into your child’s diet — and inflammatory foods to avoid
- What you must know about your child’s drinking water
- The truth about heavy metal detoxification and clearing the co-infections like Lyme, mold, strep, and parasites
- And more…
You’ll also receive a downloadable guide filled with recommendations about which foods can work best for your child, which foods to avoid — and how to implement a new diet for even the pickiest eaters.
