Keeping It Natural


Free phone consultations and shipping at Autism Coach

Because autistic children do not break down and eliminate potentially harmful substances as well as neuro-typical children, we have to be extremely careful what we put into our children's bodies.  Autism Coach supplements do not contain potential neuro-toxins, such as artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners, or binders; highly phenolic "natural flavorings", aspartates or glutamates. 

Surprisingly, many supplements created for or recommended for autistic children contain either common allergens or potential neurotoxins.  When children take supplements that are a peculiar mixture of beneficial and harmful ingredients, they may make some progress, but tend to evidence more side-effects, and not do nearly as well as they would if they were taking pure, all-natural, supplements.   

Even when it comes to obtaining prescription medications for your child, it is best to fill prescriptions through one of the compounding pharmacies on the internet, in order to get a medication as free of artificial ingredients as possible.  Many savvy mothers are now ordering their children's prescriptions through compounding pharmacies.  Medicines you can obtain in a pure form from compounding pharmacies include prescription drugs such as Nyastatin and Bethanechol - you can even order common cold and allergy remedies.

In terms of diet, it is best to use organic, natural foods when possible, to avoid hormones and pesticides which are also implicated as being problematic for our kids by Paul Shattock, a well-known autism expert.   Also, now that much of the U.S. fresh water supply is contaminated with residues of fertilizers, pesticides and medications, it may be a good idea to use water from an uncontaminated source or distilled water.  My son does better when he drinks distilled water - he can actually taste the chlorine in our tap water.
