What You Should Know About Allergy Induced Autism

issues (such as intractable constipation).
Such children are generally incapable of metabolizing (digesting) important common
food proteins; specifically casein and gluten. Casein is one of milk's main proteins and
is also commonly utilized in the manufacturing of foods. Gluten is a protein found in
wheat and several grains and is often added in the manufacturing of food.
In some children with autism, gluten and casein aren't digested in the normal way.
Instead, they are metabolized only partially and become a substance quite similar to
morphine, which can pass through the wall of the digestive tract and enter the blood
These children also often have a "mutant" form of protein in their urine after ingesting
casein or gluten. This protein is believed to be the byproduct of the creation of the
morphine-like substance; the result of which is "spacey" behavior in children and a
virtual addiction to foods that contain casein and gluten.
Due to this improper digestive functioning, these children are also incapable of
eliminating many of the chemicals within their environment and their food. These can
include pesticides, pollution, detergent additives, artificial colorings and flavorings,
chemical food additives, and other substances that can become toxic when built up
to unusually high quantities.
The symptoms of autism will typically present themselves within a child's first three
years. While some autistic children may have intolerance to chemicals in food, other
substances can impact other children. The most common "culprits" are believed to
be corn, sugar, wheat, and citrus fruits. Symptoms may be completely unnoticeable,
however, it is common for children with the disorder to experience low blood sugar,
excessive sweating (particularly at night), bloating, diarrhea, incapability to regulate
body temperature, rhinitis, a redness in the face and/or ears, and under-eye circles.
The reduction or elimination of problem substances from a child's diet will not cure
their autism, but it can help with some of the symptoms of allergy induced autism.
And this approach has been found to be effective in many children and adults. The
improvements reported have been significant in some cases, but for many children,
who appeared to be severely autistic, restricting their diet has reduced their
symptoms only as long as they don't deviate from the strict dietary limitations.

Allergy induced autism has only been
recognized by scientists and doctors
for a relatively short time since the
"discovery" of autism. Since being
recognized, its presence has become
increasingly common; in line with the
increase in autism cases.
Those who are at the highest risk for
allergy induced autism are children
who have regressive autism - that is,
those children who develop normally
and start regressing at around the
age of two years - and children with
behavioral and neurological problems
in combination with extreme digestive
