Research has proven that autism is a biomedical disorder that can be treated with a combination of behavioral and integrative therapies and nutritional interventions.
 
Enzymes – Autistic children need enzyme supplements. These supplements help in breaking down food that is not completely digested. This prevents the build-up of neuro-toxic molecules that could worsen the autistic child’s condition. A few combinations proven to work are Peptizyde and Zyme Prime, enhancement enzymes, and DigestZyme.

Vitamins
– Research has consistently shown the efficacy of vitamin B12 and B6 in the behavioral spectrum of autism disorders affected. Regular use of vitamins in various forms like B-complex, Methyl B-12, Folinic Acid, and Allithiamine has shown improvement in autism symptoms. Vitamin C and rice-based vitamin-E supplements are also helpful.

Fish oils
– Cod liver oil and cold fresh water fish have proven beneficial in autism treatment. Being high in Omega 3 oils, EPA and DHA, fish oils help in the support and development of the brain and nervous system.

Glutathione support
– Autistic children are generally deficient in glutathione, an important element for a majority of metabolic processes. Since glutathione supplement is not readily absorbed by the intestinal tract, liposome enclosed glutathione is helpful in its assimilation.

Neurological support
– Alpha GPC, Citicholine, Cal-Mag Butyrate, Carnosine, CoQ10, Inosine, Magnesium Taurate, Phosphatidyl Serine, and Vinpocetine are some important supplements that aid neural processes and development. They help in regenerating damaged nerve cells, increasing cerebral synthesis of ATP, restoring nerve function, reducing levels of ammonia in the brain, and support brain functioning and learning processes.

Immune system support
– Due to irregular neural activity, autistic children need external supplements to fortify their immune systems. Vitamin C, anti-oxidants, licorice, and Monolaurin provide neurological and immune system support by boosting hormone production, preventing the spread of viruses, and so on.

Probiotics
– Probiotics help reduce overgrowth of toxic substances in the intestinal tract. These toxins tend to interfere with the production of vitamins and neurotransmitters.
 
Due to nature of the condition, dietary balance is essential for autistic children. A gluten and casein-free diet is advisable. Other homemade remedies include Rooibos tea, chamomile, and St. John’s Wort, which help combat various symptoms. A suitable combination of these supplements is advisable for autism treatment.
