Autistic Spectrum Disorder's

Autism and Diet

Significant scientific data and overwhelming anectdocal analysis indicates a link between Autism symtoms and Diet.

The conclusions demonstrate that diet can have a significant effect on behavior, cognition, and autism/ADHD and their symptoms. DAN! (Defeat Autism Now!) practitioners believe that diet is the most important place to begin biomendical autism intervention.

The common symptoms reported to improved by diet are: stimming, language, attention, hyperactivity, learning, fatigue, aggression, self-injurious behavior, rashes, digestion, diarrhea, constipation, gas, and more.  According to the parents polled by DAN!, after chelation, diet is the most effective intervention for children on the autistic spectrum – - more that any drug, nutrient, or other biomedical therapy.

Several dietary options exist for children and adults on the autistic spectrum.  The best for a particular individual depends on many factors such as digestive capacity, bioindividuality, family history, symptoms and more.  This section provides an introduction to each diet and has some specifics to assist you in choosing the best one for you.

Healthful Living has a recipe section to assist you in implementing the diets.  We welcome your contributions as well.  Visit our Recipes section for more information
