Next Meetup - Addresses Nutritional Support for Those on the Autism Spectrum

Thursday, January 16, 2014


Asperger Syndrome Partners & Families of Adults with ASD MeetupASD doesn’t just affect a person’s ability to interact with the world. There are common physical challenges associated with it such as chronic diarrhea, constipation, bloating, gas, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), leaky gut, nutritional deficiencies, allergies and food intolerances, to mention a few.

Looking for treatment for all of these symptoms may be very discouraging. Your search can lead you to explore many different avenues - reading every ASD article, listening to every talk show ASD expert, searching the internet, consulting various doctors, chiropractors, naturopaths, trying nutritional supplements, and so on. There is limited help with pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals because they alleviate some symptoms but they don’t cure ASD.

Another avenue for research is exploring how diet can help those on the Autism Spectrum. Many have found relief by eliminating from the diet foods that contribute to inflammation and toxicity or that trigger immune response such as artificial ingredients, gluten, sugar, and casein. Others have noted improvements by adding digestive enzymes, probiotics, and more fermented foods such as non-dairy yogurt or kefir that heal the damage to the gut.

Most of us become experts at searching for treatments for our family members on the Autism Spectrum. Let's start the new year by sharing the wealth of knowledge you have regarding what has worked or not. While there is no panacea, I have heard marvelous stories of improved, health and well being on a case-by-case basis. Maybe your experience will help another member.

Join us on January 18, as Asperger Syndrome: Partners and Families of Adults with ASD will have our first Meetup of the year. We’ll be discussing Vitamins, Minerals, Fermented Foods and Micronutrients - what works for our family members with ASD.
