Earlier this week, we featured an article by by Juile Matthews, an autism nutrition specialist and Defeat Autism Now! (DAN!) Practitioner. Today we are giving away an autographed copy of her book, Nourishing Hope for Autism!
According to Julie, "Nourishing Hope for Autism explains the science of diet for autism: its underlying biochemistry and how food and nutrition affect health, healing, cognition, and behavior. I present a comprehensive holistic plan to determine and effectively implement a dietary strategy. Beyond autism, there are many neurological and inflammatory conditions that have similar underlying contributors and biochemistry that benefit from the approach I present in Nourishing Hope, namely ADHD, allergies, asthma, digestive disorders, mood imbalances, and autoimmune conditions …
I explore traditional healing foods, gluten-free an dairy-free diets, therapeutic nutrients, probiotics in fermented foods for gut health, and specialized healing diets to balance biochemistry and support digestion. I share practiced methods for “sneaking” in nutrient-dense foods the ways kids like it. I emphasize the myriad of ways that food is medicine or poison depending on; the quality, the way food is grown or raised, the manner in which food is prepared, processed, and cooked, and the compounds in food that can heal or aggravate systems. This book is an excellent guide for families navigating diet and nutrition for a child with autism."
If you just can't wait to win, Julie's autism book is available here on Amazon.
