Diets for Autism, ADD/ADHD, and other
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
