Autism is a medical illness. The brain is affected by poor nutrition, a weak immune system and inflamed intestines. The result -- a change in behaviour. Using nutrition as the basic building block, I assist parents as they choose the most beneficial approach for their child. What can be removed from the diet? What can be added?
Each child with ASD is unique. Biomedical treatment recognizes this fact and has, as its goal, the balancing of all body systems. With appropriate intervention, an autistic child can improve.
The Autism Intervention Clinic offers the support families need as they begin to nourish their child's brain. It may be a challenging journey but the rewards for parent and child are enormous. Autism is treatable.
