April is Autism Awareness month and Cara from Health, Home and Happiness, a young mother whose daughter has autism and the author of the e-book What Can I Eat Now – 30 Days on GAPS Intro. You can read my review of this helpful guide in my post here to learn more about this helpful e-book.
Autism is affecting more children each year.
There Is a Cure!
Many believe there is no cure for autism, but those of us who know about GAPS know there is a way to help these children. And the sooner you begin the GAPS diet, the higher your chances are for recovering your child. Please do not wait until you get an “official” diagnosis. If you see the signs, please begin helping your child! GAPS may look intimidating at first, but once you have read Dr. Natasha's book you will be full of hope and eager to get started.
Signs and Symptoms of Autism
One of the major signs as I understand it is your child will have digestive problems. From Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride's book, Gut and Psychology Syndrome: Natural Treatment for Autism, Dyspraxia, A.D.D., Dyslexia, A.D.H.D., Depression, Schizophrenia she says:
“GAPS children and adults have digestive problems, sometimes quite severe. Colic, bloating, flatulence, diarrhoea, constipation, feeding difficulties and malnourishment, all to various degrees, are a typical part of autism, schizophrenia and other GAPS conditions. Doctors often explain these symptoms as a result of the patient's “funny” feeding habits and are not inclined to investigate them.”
“In many cases parents clearly remember that the diarrhea or constipation started in the second year, but thinking back would recall that their child had colic, vomiting (reflux) or other digestive symptoms in the first year as well.”
The sooner you begin to help your child, the sooner you can recover your child. Yes, fully recover. When you read Dr. Natasha's book it will make so much sense as to why the autism affects as it does. It is a gut/mind connection.
Here is Dr. Natasha's story of recovering her son, story written in 2003: My Son.
I have also interviewed several parents who are doing GAPS to recover their child from autism on my Blog Talk Radio show:
- Millie has recovered her son from autism and her daughter saw the signs of autism in her children and they are now healthy and whole.
- Cara has seen great improvements with her daughter
- Baden has seen great healing for herself and her son on GAPS
- Janice has seen amazing improvements with her son Sam on GAPS
- Toni Graff has seen healing with her son who has ADHD; we were also honored to speak with Toni's delightful son in this interview
- Shelley's son was diagnosed with Asperger's
Look into GAPS today, if you haven't already.
