Nutrition and Autism
A connection between gut health & brain health has been discovered in the past few years. Many doctors are researching the answers to help kids with Autism and the relationship between gut health and the brain health of those within the autism spectrum is still being studied further.
Gut & Psychology Syndrome™
Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, MD, Neurosurgeon and Nutritionist wrote the book “Gut & Psychology Syndrome” also known as “GAPS”™
Dr. Campbell has a very successful medical practice in NY where she has helped many of her patients with Autism through using the GAPS™ Diet that she designed. Nancy Javaras, an Integrative Nutrition™ Health Coach has seen many of her clients within the autism spectrum see improvements using the basis of this diet as well as a regimen of nutritional supplements.
Gut Health and Brain Health Connection
Gut Health is continually being linked to many different health issues. Autism is just one of many conditions that seem to show a strong connection to proper gut health as well as other nutritional factors.
Nancy has used GLUTEN FREE recipes to help heal the gut as well as recommending Probiotics, Digestive Enzymes, Fish Oil and Multivitamin and minerals to help her clients support good digestive & gut health. Through improving gut health, the immune system is dramatically improved because 70% of the immune system is in the gut.
Also many kids with Autism have severe GI issues such as bloating, constipation, diarrhea, food sensitivities, food allergies, stomach pains and more. Proper nutrition and the correct supplements can improve gut health and most of these symptoms. When the body is able to heal, it can also detoxify better.
Key Elements of Diet
She recommends a strict GLUTEN FREE diet because gluten can affect both the brain and gut.
She recommends eating the good fats that have high amounts of Omega 3’s.
Meat Stocks and broths are also part of healing the gut.
