I noticed it is Autism Month in the US and we now have quite a few readers across the pond so I thought it an opportune time to share a couple of resources on the subject for you, wherever you are.
The connection between autism and nutritional imbalances is pretty well-established nowadays, even though it was anathema when I first remember talking about it just 20 years ago. I saw these two flyers, albeit from a nutritional testing company but complete with references, the other day and thought they would at least serve as useful aide-memoires at where to start looking.
The test is here if you need it. Quite pricey, I have to say, but cutting edge. I listed it because it is the only one I have seen that measures intracellular vitamins and elements like COQ10 rather than hair or serum and that includes fructose and carbohydrate sensitivity.
You might also want to have a look at Food for the Brain’s excellent resources here.
Finally, our friends at FoodsMatter.com have an excellent list of research reports and resources you can tap into, plus several articles on the subject. Here is the Autism Management page, for example.
I hope those resources help. There are more on the Autism page in the Clinic A-Z too.
