Oxalates

Individuals with autism, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and kidney stones often have high levels of oxalates and its acid form, oxalaic acid. High levels of oxalates can be caused by overgrowth of yeast and other pathogens in the intesteinal tract which produce oxalates as a by-product.  A diet low in oxalates can significantly reduce symptoms of autism, including fine motor coordination and over all level of functioning.

Foods especially high in oxalates include spinach, rhubarb, chocolate, and peanuts. Oxalates are not found in meat or fish at significant concentrations.  People suspeptible to kidney stones and people on the autism spectrum both tend to have high levels of oxalates. 

Oxalate crystals may also form in the bones, joints, blood vessels, lungs, and even the brain. Oxalate crystals may cause damage to various tissues. The sharp crystals may cause damage due to their physical structure and may also increase inflammation. Oxalates may also function as chelating agents and may chelate many toxic metals such as mercury and lead. Unlike other chelating agents, oxalates trap heavy metals in the tissues.

Yeast overgrowth leads to increased oxalate production and when combined with mercury, slows mercury elimination. In addition, oxalates from the diet or from yeast/fungus in the gastrointestinal tract bind calcium, magnesium, and zinc, perhaps leading to deficiencies even when dietary sources should be adequate.

The supplements below can help reduce levels of oxalates.
