I have a Theory.
For me I believe when we are born the brain runs a programme in each of us that makes us learn to walk, communicate, and socialise etc. What if something we consume blocks that process? Remove what is causing the block too late and the brain has formed too far the wrong way. Remove it early enough and the brain will revert back to the original programme and develop the correct way.
There is no consistent study that shows all autism is caused by something in our DNA.
Parents with no family history of autism have children with autism.
Children with autism often have bad guts. Why is it not more logical that something we consume causes the bad gut and therefore impacts on that programme of development rather than the less logical explanation that something in the brain is causing something to occur in the gut.
Just wanted to introduce the idea and see what people think.
Please. This is not about whether Autistic people are good or bad or right or wrong. I need help because I believe that I understand what is going on so let me begin to explain.
The brain runs an automatic programme that shapes the phyiscial wiring of the brain. This happens in all babies.
The problem is that in Autistic Children actually their programme is interrupted by both *** and Dairy Milk.
The reason that the results of diet change are inconclusive is becuase of timing. The key here is, that it is not changing the diet that will fix things but rather when you change the diet. It is all about timing.
So if you change the diet after the brain is physcially wired for example in a 4 year old then it will not make a difference in the outcome apart from the symptoms associated with the gut will be corrected i.e wind, constipation etc.
If you change the diet early then you allow the programme of brain development to resume and then you can limit the affects of autistic behaviours because the brain will begin to develop normally.
People think early intervention i.e speech therapy and aba is at play but often people make dietary changes too ie they provide gluten and dairy free diets to their young ones.
Studies are inconclusive because people are making diet changes at different ages and often too late. The studies focus on observing a diet change in autistic chidren of different ages.
To prove my theory you have to make the changes to the diet of toddlers exhibiting symptoms no later than 15 months of age. Then you will see marked improvements in their joint attention skills, eye contact and general engagement. You will see a transition of interest away from objects to people.
I can prove my theroy if toddlers present typcial red flags i.e lack of eye contact, flapping and parents are willing to make the diet change no later than 15 months. I believe in this case that all children will improve and not remain on the autistic spectrum at all.
The toddlers would all have to be given the same diet and all at the same age. As the toddlers will no longer be having milk they would need to be provided with a balanced diet and vitamins.
What evidence do you have that leads you to the conclusion that dietary changes would have the effect you describe?
What is it about children's diets, what foods and what is it the foods contain, that you see as causing the child to remain (or develop further down the path?) of autism?
If I've understood the above correctly, what was it that made the child START down the path of autism? Was that, the starting point, a predisposition to Autism (as in a genetic or gestational cause)?
Finally, what is the alternative diet that you are proposing?
P.S. I do not know what you mean by *** and Dairy Milk. Please explain.
