Autism Treatment – Spring Allergies, Regression and Autism, Part 1 of 2

Posted on 12 May 2011 by admin

Autism Treatment – Well, it’s that time of year again, spring is upon us and for many kids on the Autism spectrum, spring brings on yeast. It’s interesting, I’ve seen this pattern over the past many years where kids who are susceptible to yeast overgrowth or they have a yeast overgrowth issue and it’s been well controlled, whether through supplements or medications, all of a sudden spring hits, the pollens are out, the flowers are blooming and all of a sudden kids start to regress into yeast behavior, the goofiness, the giddiness, the silliness, the inappropriate laughter, the self stimulatory behavior just odd types of things that we often associate with yeast overgrowth come about.

Explanation of Autism Treatment with Spring Allergies and Regression

Now why exactly is this happening? It’s pretty difficult to know exactly what’s going on but the suspicion is that when you have an increase of allergy in the body you’re obviously going to have an increase in immune activity to those allergens, whether it’s a pollen, whether it’s a grass, whatever it may be. If you have an underlying yeast issue with your child then essentially what’s happening is there’s a bit of a shift that’s occurring in the immune system whether it’s systemically or it’s localized in the intestinal tract or the mucosal lining of the sinuses or nose but it has a systemic effect. Once there’s that increase in immune activity in some respects the yeast can take advantage of that type of situation and many times they start to overgrow and as they overgrow, they increase their metabolic activity their biotoxins are released and kids just start to cycle again into yeast behavior.

So some things that you can do is first off as autism treatment, watch for it. If you’re in a part of the country here all of a sudden it’s pretty cold then all of a sudden it’s warm again real quickly, watch to see if you’re seeing any type of yeast behavior. Make sure, too, when the weather gets warmer, many of us are outside, we start having family and friends over at the house, we’re starting to do more picnics and many times that can be an increased consumption of sugary foods and juices and soda pop and whatnot for some kids so that may need to be curtailed.
