To give you a little bit of background about my journey of living holistically. I was diagnosed with diabetes, high blood pressure and poly cystic ovarion syndrome. sounds scary doesent it? well it was and is. I was put on pills to try to maintain all of these ailments but the medicine was not a good fit for me. So I had to do my research and I realised that all of these disorders stems from diet. Since 2007 I have been on a quest of figuring out the diet thats right for me. 2014 was the year that I figured it out.
Diet is so important because it is the fuel that drives the immune system. whether good or bad it does effect our immune system.
Diabetes, hypertension and something that is becoming an epidemic autism are all disorders that can either suffer or benefit from your Diet.
One way to deal with any disease or disorder is to become a conscious eater. With that being said always be aware of what you are eating and cooking.
Make sure you are getting enough leafy greens and vegetables. You must also get certain fruits in daily.
Blending is very important. I myself blend everyday. I have a blended fresh drink in the morning and at night.
⦁ pomergranate ( super food) please use a directed.
⦁ Turmeric (super Spice)
These ingredients above are natures medicine and can be very powerful so please be careful on the amount you eat at one time.
Autism via web MD
The benefit of a gluten-free/casein-free diet is based on the theory that children with autism may have an allergy or high sensitivity to foods containing gluten or casein. Children with autism, according to the theory, process peptides and proteins in foods containing gluten and casein differently than other people do. Hypothetically, this difference in processing may exacerbate autistic symptoms. Some believe that the brain treats these proteins like false opiate-like chemicals. The reaction to these chemicals, they say, leads a child to act in a certain way. The idea behind the use of the diet is to reduce symptoms and improve social and cognitive behaviors and speech.
To put this simply a diet that is full of wheat gluten and dairy is not at all advised for a child with autism because they break down these foods differently and that it inhibits there growth mentally.
So now that you are going on this journey you are apart of the gfcf diet. This is the gluten free cassein free diet. This is to not be taken lightly and remember to change your diet gradually not drastically. You have to give the body time to catch up to the mind.

The effects of sugar on Autism via relatetoautism.com
Refined sugar is not a food. It gives us no nutrition but in fact strips our bodies of essential vitamins and minerals. Refined sugar (sucrose) has been implicated in studies to be a major contributor to a range of diseases from coronary hear disease, cancer to cataracts, emphysema, antisocial behavior, anxiety, depression and hyperactivity in children.
Many children with autism have food allergies or intolerances and as a result damaged intestinal tracts and in-balanced gut flora. Many children with developmental delays also suffer from persistent ear infections often resulting in over use of antibiotics. This all provides conditions ripe for an overgrowth of yeast (candida albicans) in the gut. Yeast feeds on sugar. It then produces toxic chemicals including alcohol. Alcohol is easily carried in the blood to the frontal lobes of the brain where it inhibits nerve growth and brain development often manifesting as:
* deceased attention span
* disruptive conduct
* sugar cravings
* reduced fine-motor control and
The toxins produced by yeast in the gut also depress the immune system and leave you more sensitive to developing allergies to other foods and environmental stimuli. Hypersensitive people are also anxious and stressed. When we're stressed our bodies release cortisol and adrenaline, hormones known to have detrimental effects on all areas of the body when released chronically. Adrenaline makes cells more vulnerable and leaves you more open to infections. Infections are often treated with antibiotics with kill off all the beneficial bacteria in our guts that are there to keep to yeast down. The cycle continues.
There is no reason to use refined sugar.
Check on the back of any packaged foods you are considering giving to you child. If it contains any one of the following ingredients don't use it:
* white sugar
* brown sugar
