At this time, there is no known cause or cure for autism. It is important to understand that some, but not all, symptoms of autism stem from the brain. For example, poor sleeping habits may be the result of gut issues. Food aversions can stem from nutritional deficiencies. Aggression can be exacerbated by food sensitivities. Many of these symptoms can be improved with diet. Individualized nutrition therapy is one of many tools in our toolbelt when it comes to helping children with autism. I can help by looking at your child as a whole person and providing nutrition care that addresses not only nutritional needs but additional symptoms that may be linked to diet.
