Overcoming Autism's Sensory Struggles: Finding The Right Vitamins


How Medical Technology Can Help Your Self-Confidence

Like it or not, a lot of a person's feelings towards themselves can come from the way they look -- or the way that they perceive themselves looking. With so many Americans suffering from low self-esteem, this problem isn't one you can just ignore, or hope will go away on its own. But building self-esteem through self-talk and introspection can take years, and you're feeling bad about yourself right now. If you're looking for some quick boosts to your self-esteem to get yourself started on the right path, then here are a few medical procedures you can try.

#1: Dental Implants

Missing or damaged teeth -- whether due to an accident, age, or disease -- can make you self-conscious about your smile. And since smiling is one of the best natural ways to improve your mood, you're going to want to be able to smile as much as possible. Dental implants can mean just a crown, some filled-in chips, or a whole tooth to replace one you've lost, and they don't have to break the bank. Dental technology has made implants cheaper and more durable than they were even a decade ago. For more information, contact Peter J. Kaufman, DMD or a similar dental professional.

#2: Botox

It gets a bad rap, but smoothing out crow's feet and helping display your cheekbones and jaw -- whether you're male or female -- can help take years off your face and make you feel better about the person in the mirror. But if you're wary of needles, don't be alarmed -- a recent development in cosmetic technology has led to the invention of botox without needles. It might sound too good to be true, but this botox gel, which can be applied by a doctor, will give you all the benefits of botox without having to bear with a needle coming anywhere near your face.

#3: Compression Clothes

As you age, you're bound to notice that some of your veins seem to be popping right out of your skin. Varicose veins occur when the blood gets a bit backed up in these channels, and affect half of people over 50. Getting rid of these unsightly veins can do more than just help blood flow in your body -- it can also help you to be more confident in your skin, and let you stop worrying about what others might think of those bulging veins. Compression clothes -- whether socks, gloves, or other articles -- can help keep the blood moving and shrink down those spider veins until no one can tell that they were there.

Overcoming Autism's Sensory Struggles: Finding The Right Vitamins

Having a child on the autism spectrum poses all kinds of unique challenges that can sometimes be very difficult. The sensory issues that often accompany spectrum disorders can mean that even everyday things like taking vitamins may be a serious struggle. For my son, it's both texture and taste that pose challenges for him, which made finding a vitamin supplement very difficult. After experimenting with many different brands, styles, and flavors, I have found what does and doesn't work for various sensory issues that he has. I've created this site to share our experiences in the hopes that it might help other parents with kids on the spectrum to find a vitamin their child will take.
