Salicylates and Summertime!

summettimeBy Julie Matthews, CNC

If you were hoping that summertime – a time with no school, fresh air, sunshine, and exercise - would help your child feel better and improve their behavior... but it hasn't, then salicylates might be your challenge. Salicylates are naturally-occurring food chemicals in fruits, vegetables, and other plant foods like herbs, spices, nuts, etc.). FULL STORY

The resulting increase in salicylate consumption can cause a child's body to become overloaded, and cause physical, emotional, and behavioral symptoms.

Julie Matthews will be participating on a panel on Nutrition Intervention Improving Autism Related Disorders Friday, August 16, presenting Get Started Now - Food and Nutrition Matter! Saturday, August 17, and Nutrition Workshop: Supplements, Kids, and Fun with your Blender on Sunday August 18 at the USAAA 2013 World Conference.

Practical implementation of diets is essential

by Phillip C. DeMio, MD, USAAA Chief Medical Officer

D. Phillip C. DeMioPractical implementation of diets is essential for any change in eating, whether it's for weight loss, diabetes, or ASD. So it goes with the various options for diets used for the spectrum: they must not only help in theory, but we also wish to offer them as "do-able" for you and your family, whether the whole family unit goes on a particular diet or it is simply implemented for the affected individual(s). Keep a pragmatic eye on how to do a given diet as we discuss them. Also, though not everyone responds to a given diet, consider which one(s) make the most sense for you or your loved one or patient.

Finally, please note that many condiments, medications, and cosmetics violate these diets, so they must be "cleared" (eg, gluten and casein-free lotions). More on Medical and Biomedical Interventions...

"Carbohydrate-restrictive diets can be from a gamut that excludes all carbs (starch and sugar) in an effort to circumvent difficulties in digestion that lead to residual food particles that feed yeast, some bacteria, and other disease-producing germs.

Dr. DeMio will be presenting Critical Health Challenges During the Lifespan; and Emergencies, Surgeries, and Anesthesia and participating on the The Doctors and Researchers Panel on Friday, August 16, and participating on the Bringing It All Together Panel on Sunday August 18 at the USAAA 2013 World Conference.
