8. Treating autism through diet
Some natural food advocates claim that a change in diet is integral to successful autism treatments. Perhaps specific artificial ingredients commonly found in processed foods exacerbate autism symptoms? Gluten free and casein free diets are the most popular of their recommendations. Conventional doctors dispute the idea that there could be any connection between food and autism. This is a treatment area where it is possible to experiment. It is important to ensure the autistic person receives sufficient nutrients and proteins. If a healthier menu appears to improve their general condition, then everyone benefits.
