Alternative Services to Autism

The Gut and the Brain establish a connection between the functions of the digestive system and the cognitive functions of the brain. This is the foundation of our clinical intervention with children and adolescents with neurological and psychiatric conditions, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD/ADD), schizophrenia, dyslexia, dyspraxia, depression, obsessive –compulsive disorder, bi-polar disorder and other neuro-psychological and psychiatric problems.

Therapeutic Approach

Natural detoxification/cleansing and life-style changes,  Healthy, low glycemic index eating is the most important treatment of digestive disorders. What you eat has a direct effect on your well-being,  Natural Supplementation provides the necessary nutrients your diet fails to provide, Behavior Modification, stress management.and self care.

Autism Spectrum Disorder and Complementary Treatment: Diet and Supplementation

It is well-documented that children with Autism Spectrum Disorder suffer more from gut and dietary issues than others kids. This is because in a normal individual, as the food makes its way through the digestive tract, dietary protein is broken down into smaller peptides or amino acid chains thoroughly. Unfortunately, for those with autism, this is not the case. Common proteins from gluten (which one gets from wheat, barley, oats, and rye) and proteins from casein (that is found in milk and dairy products) have properties in them that resemble morphine-like or opioid properties when released into the bloodstream. These components cause inflammation of the gut and exacerbate some of the symptoms of autism. The reaction between these chemicals makes a child with autism act in a particular manner.  In essence, food may diminish our health, but food also has the power to “heal” and restore balance in our body. In the case of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), diet then becomes very important.

What is highly recommended though for those with ASD is a gluten-free/casein-free diet, which is also known as the GFCF diet. In this diet, gluten and casein is removed completely from their food intake. Food products like bread, cereals, cookies, crackers, and the like that include wheat barley, oats and rye are not recommended; milk products likewise.  

Additionally, the loss of nutrients from food due to genetically modified organisms, modern agricultural methods, soil depletion, storage, distribution and even cooking methods lend to the need for adequate and personalized supplementation.  Specifically personalized supplementation as each individual is unique and with different needs.  It is vital that supplementation is natural, isotonic and anti-oxidant, targeting the free-radicals that causes all disorders.    

Studies have shown significant progress in patients with complementary diet and supplementation. Parents, who have made the diet intervention and personalized supplementation, claim drastic improvements in their child’s behavior, and performance in school.  Not only have the gastrointestinal conditions been relieved immensely, but their child exhibits improved cognitive functioning. The child is more social and communicative, and they show great progress in learning and concentration.

But before making your child or loved one jump into and diet and supplementation regimen, it is best to consult with a specialist. Working closely with a diet and natural supplementation specialist is highly recommended in order to gain more knowledge into this complementary treatment of diet intervention and personalized supplementation.
