Ordinary Vegan Podcast #12: How A GFCF Diet Can Help Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Today’s podcast discusses the benefits of a gluten-free, casein-free (GFCF) diet for children with autism spectrum disorder and ADHD.

Gut disorders are one of the most common medical conditions associated with autism. The CDC found that children with autism are three to five times more likely to suffer from chronic gastrointestinal disorders. 

Researchers also found a link to gut disorders and autism severity in children. Toxins produced by abnormal gut bacteria may trigger or or worsen autism in children.

The good news is that some autistic and ADHD children’s gut bacteria problems can be helped with diet and eating the right food is essential.

Learn in today’s podcast what foods and chemicals to avoid for gut disorders, and what foods can help repair the gut lining.

We also discuss the role of glyphosate, one of the most commonly digested chemicals and how it can affect your health and the health of your child.
