Autism Awareness Week: Organic Answers

10 Apr

In observance of Autism Awareness Month, this week we’re bringing you some facts, helpful resources, and products designed just for kids with special needs (and their families)!

DID YOU KNOW that organic foods, because they contain no pesticides, artificial hormones or genetically-modified ingredients, are often easier on autistic children’s sensitive digestive systems?  There’s more to going organic than just changing your diet, and the benefits of an organic lifestyle can improve a child’s well-being.

The Organic Nanny’s Guide to Raising Healthy Kids offers advice for gradually changing your child’s diet and environment to eliminate toxins in favor of a “natural life that feeds rather than depletes children.”   This book has several chapters related to diet, including the gluten-free, casein-free diet that may be helpful to children with autism.  Other chapters deal with detoxifying the home, natural remedies, taking care of Mom (don’t miss the list of Anti-Cranky-Mama snacks!), cultivating an attitude of gratitude and service to others, and listening to your own intuition and wisdom.

While this book is full of great advice for families working to improve an autistic child’s symptoms, the Organic Nanny’s tips and techniques can be used by any family.
