A roller derby mom with a son diagnosed with Autism changed her son’s diet to be “gluten-free, soy-free and casein-free” with extremely positive results.
By now, his mom said, he is high-functioning, and she credits a lot of that to his gluten-free, soy-free and casein-free diet, which his doctor recommended after his diagnosis. (Casein is a protein found in milk.)
The change in diet — no gluten, casein or soy — was near-miraculous.
“He began speaking and making more eye contact within two weeks of beginning the diet,” said Stephens.
I plan to find more articles on people treating Autism with dietary changes. I don’t believe that a bad diet causes Autism so much as an incorrect diet for a particular person may cause them to manifest symptoms that may receive a diagnosis of an Autism Spectrum Disorder.
