Autism is a gut problem - and can be reversed with a no-wheat, no-dairy diet

Autism can be improved - and even reversed - without drugs

Autism can be improved - and even reversed - without drugs. Children just need to stop eating wheat and dairy, researchers have discovered this week - because the problem is related to the gut and immune system.
Children with autism may be more allergic, and have more gut problems, than other children - and this may be the key to reversing the problem, say researchers from Penn State.
When autistic children are given a gluten-free and casein-free diet - no wheat and no dairy - their symptoms improve. The Penn State researchers made the discovery when they asked 397 parents with autistic children to introduce a restricted diet. The parents reported big improvements in their children's social behaviour, language skills, eye contact and attention span.
Most doctors believe that autism is a neurological disorder, treatable with drugs.
