My goodness I'm a reader. So much that it overwhelms me.
I love The Late Talker, Even in this book, there is a chapter recognizing omega-3s and the potential for help with speech-delay.
The most herbal-related book is He's Not Autistic, But..., which can be a bit overwhelming with her success of herbals and naturals. I mean, I'm all for it, and it's an easy read, BUT, it's a lot. And i know how much each visit to an osteo-, naturo-, homeo-, path costs. They're not cheap.
Omega-3's seem pretty standard. I've not given to my son yet, nearing on 3yo. But I've already bought and will try out.
We already do flax-seed oil in foods and he eats a ton of good fish. We try to do a paleo-diet, more increasingly now. He doesn't have issues or intolerance or allergy (me neither), but I'm 36 and I have a bad gut. Nothing I've been able to pinpoint, but if it's anything.. carbs bloat me horribly. So we'll try a paleo for now.
In the alternative remedy-related books I'm reading, aluminum and parasites keep coming up; and herbals to treat for them. I'm not making appointments to be tested (although I hear that metal-testing is part of a basic CBC, as long as you ask).
I'm just curious.. I'm not going to jump on the band-wagon of... this cured my son... but I like reading. I like researching. And I'm curious.
