I was wondering if anyone could post links to information about food issues and spectrum like behavior or being on spectrum? I know that I have seen a lot of good stuff in the past but the search feature doesn't work for me and a friend has asked me to pass anything I've read on to her.

TIA

As in....food being the cause of behaviors, like an allergy? Or as in, being on the spectrum and having food sensitivities and gut issues? Which one?

All of the above. I'm sorry that I wasn't very clear. I was wrestling a little one in my lap who wanted to help type.

Basically I've been asked for everything and anything that can be passed on. Seems there is a running line of folks in the family that land somewhere on spectrum so she is wanting to get her research in. She's in her early 20's with her own health issues and wants to research all the possible sides of the issue since she has a fairly new little one of her own now.


Again I'm sorry for any confusion.

I'd google gluten free dairy free diets and you'll get a ton of stuff.

I like www.gfcfdiet.com for info.
Also I like the book special diets for special kids

Good luck!!

Yeah, gfcf diet, feingold diet, and "leaky gut + autism." Google all of those, you'll get loads. Specific links that may help:

www.pecanbread.com
www.enzymestuff.com
http://www.autismweb.com/diet.htm

HTH!!

i keep posting this link all over the place, but only because it helped our family so much. It's a good start. There is more to it than just GFCF

Hi,

There is a great book called "Is this your Child?" By Dr Rapp. It talks about food and environmental allergies being the triggers for Autistic-like behavior, and symptoms of ADD/ADHD. It is an interesting book.

Take care,

Jen, mama to  (M-13, N- 10, C- 8 rainbow1284.gif J- 3.5, and rainbow1284.gifJ -2, angel3.gifA (10/4/07) and 3 early losses)
We are expecting baby #7 in November 2013
