There are many pieces to the autism puzzle.
There are multiple factors involved in autism and it is the general consensus that it is caused by a combination of genetic and environmental triggers.
An increasing number of parents are seeking biomedical interventions for their children on the autism spectrum as well as for ADHD.
Clinical nutrition for autism and other behavioral conditions addresses some of the biomedical theories related to autism. The four main areas addressed under this approach are gastrointestinal abnormalities, immune dysfunctions, detoxification abnormalities, and/or nutritional deficiencies/ imbalances.
Addressing these issues can help control specific behaviors associated with these conditions!
I have added some great articles and/or peer reviewed journals which highlights this approach and the need for nutritional intervention for autism.
