GI and Autism
We have a 4 1/2 year daughter who has been diagnosed with autism.
She is high functioning, but lacks verbal, emotional and physical skills
of other children in her age group.
We know numerous parents of autistic children. Here are the
associated facts with these children:
1. Every child (including our own) has GI related problems
2. Every child (including our own) who modified their diet (i.e. GFCF,
nutritional supplements) showed signs of improvement
It doesn't take a "rocket scientist" to assess that there is some
relationship between GI/diet and autism. Let's keep our eye on the ball.
Why would any medical professional even waste valuable brain cycles on
trying to disprove there is a relationship between GI and autism? This
seems so counter productive!
If drinking a soft fizzy drink cured cancer but no one could prove the reason why,
would you not tell a person dying of cancer to drink it?
