    Autism, Puberty and Behavior [Episode 142]

    Autism, Puberty and Behavior [Episode 142]

    The symptoms of autism can be difficult enough to work with. Puberty brings with it many additional challenges for both parents and their children. Beginning around the age of nine, the body triggers hormones to begin puberty. By the age of fourteen, a noticeable change in behavior is happening.


    If your child has been going along peacefully, but suddenly becomes incredibly difficult to deal with, more aggressive, angry, moody, and loses all motivation, it is likely due to hormonal changes affecting his brain.

    Autism and Anger [Episode 141]

    Autism and Anger [Episode 141]

    Bringing Peace Back To The Family
    Let’s address the elephant in the room. Many parents of children on the autism spectrum have concerns about safety for themselves, their other children, or those in their community. Autism and anger often go hand in hand. Anger and impulsive behavior can be a daily occurrence.


    This does not mean,of course, that all children on the autism spectrum have anger issues. But many do. And when they do, it is difficult for the entire family to deal with, and scary! Some parents live with extreme fear for their own well being and for the safety of others. Dare we mention Newtown or the 2014 episode at The University of California at Santa Barbara?


    As it turns out, there are several possibilities for issues of anger or violent episodes in children and adults on the autism spectrum. Neurotoxic foods such as monosodium glutamate or MSG are known to create episodes of anger. The heavy metal lead is another trigger for anger...

    How To Help Balance Hypoglycemia or Low Blood Sugar [Episode 140]

    How To Help Balance Hypoglycemia or Low Blood Sugar [Episode 140]

    Hypoglycemia is a condition that comes from low blood sugar or low glucose levels. Behavioral outbursts, anxiety, and lack of ability to think clearly can be the result of the brain being starved of its energy supply.


    When it has been too long since our last meal or snack, our blood sugar drops and our brain cannot function properly. If we eat too many sugars and refined carbohydrates, our body responds by releasing large amounts of the hormone insulin to counteract the effects of all of the sugar. This is especially hard on the liver and can cause it to become congested. The liver is our main organ of detoxification. Children with autism already have issues with this which can create further physical and behavioral problems...


    Some symptoms associated with low blood sugar are:
    Hyperactivity

    Anxiety

    Fatigue

    Irritability and anger

    Trouble sleeping and nightmares

    low cognitive function, confusion and inability to focus

    Headaches

    Digestive disturbance

    Visual issues

    Cardiovascular problems

    Nerve disruption


    Supplements to help balance blood sugar:
    omega-3 fatty acids, especially DHA

    COQ10 or ubiquinol

    alpha lipoic acid

    chromium picolinate

    gamma linolenic acid (GLA)

    berberine

    cinnamon

    vitamin D

    peppermint

    Tips To Naturally Reduce Depression [Episode 139]

    Tips To Naturally Reduce Depression [Episode 139]

    According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2021, depression is a common illness worldwide. Approximately 280 million people in the word have depression. At its worst, depression can lead to suicide.


    The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that 7.1% of children aged 3-17 years (approximately 4.4 million) have diagnosed anxiety, and 3.2% of children aged 3-17 years (approximately 1.9 million) have diagnosed depression. The percentage of adults who experienced any symptoms of depression was highest among those aged 18–29 (21.0%), followed by those aged 45–64 (18.4%) and 65 and over (18.4%), and lastly, by those aged 30–44 (16.8%). Women are twice as likely than men to experience mild, moderate, or severe symptoms of depression. In teens, the percentage doubles between the ages of 14 and 17.


    Adolescents with mental health conditions are particularly vulnerable to social exclusion, discrimination, stigma (affecting readiness to seek help), educational difficulties, risk-taking behaviors, physical ill-health and human rights violations. Globally, it is estimated that 1 in 7 (14%) 10-19 year-olds experience mental health conditions, yet these remain largely unrecognized and untreated.


    Actual depression is more than feeling sad. True depression is when the sadness is prolonged and effects everyday life. Feeling a strong sense of anxiousness, fearfulness, worry, poor concentration and excessive guilt are also signs of depression...

    Gluten and the Brain [Episode 138]

    Gluten and the Brain [Episode 138]

    Does diet really matter? Yes, the intake of gluten can directly affect the brain and the behavior of your child on the autism spectrum.





    Gastrointestinal surgeon, Dr. Andrew Wakefield, found the greatest results in treating children with autism came from a gluten free/casein free diet. When he treated the inflammatory bowel disease he found their behavior improved, sleep improved and there was an increase in communication...


    Gluten (wheat protein) and casein (dairy protein) release natural opiate-like substances into the bloodstream, which, if they get through the blood-brain barrier, can mimic the effects of morphine in the brain. The opiates in casein and gluten are called exorphins, specifically, gluteomorphins and caseomorphins...


    Behavioral issues such as hyperactivity and mood disorders are common in people with gluten sensitivity.
