Today's podcast discusses the benefits of a gluten-free, casein-free, GFCF diet, for children with autism spectrum disorder.
Gut disorders are one of the most common medical conditions associated with autism. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that children with autism are three to five times more likely to suffer from chronic gastrointestinal disorders.
Researchers also found a link to gut disorders and autism severity in children. Toxins produced by abnormal gut bacteria may trigger or worsen autism in children.
The good news is that some autistic and ADHD children's gut bacteria problems can be helped with diet and eating the right food is essential.
