Newsletter 9 – One Lifestyle Change That Can Make A Difference for Your Autistic Child……


And that will be by adopting the Gluten-free and Casein-free (GFCF) Diet.

What is the reason for the effectiveness of the GFCF Diet? Remember in our special report, we mentioned that the immune system for an autistic child has been compromised by traumatic memories? Over 60% of the immune system is actually in the gut. As a result of their compromised immune system, many autistic children have what is known as a leaky gut syndrome.

Leaky gut syndrome means that the gut is ultra-permeable, allowing undigested food substances to leak into the blood stream which can then affect the whole body adversely.

Unfortunately, adopting the GFCF diet requires huge dedication from all caretakers of the child. It means eliminating gluten and casein from the child’s diet totally. Even trace amounts of these would cause havoc, so if you plan to eliminate it, it has to be done 100% or not at all.

Gluten is found in wheat, barley and rye and casein is found in dairy products like milk, cheese and yogurt. Below, please find a list of foods and possible products to avoid taken from the website http://www.gfcf.com/
