Overcoming Autism's Sensory Struggles: Finding The Right Vitamins


Having Gut Problems? Tips For Healing Yourself

If you have been having a lot of trouble with the health of your gut, such as intestinal issues, you will want to do everything you can to make it better. This way, you will not have to worry about having to live a life where you are always experiencing a lot of pain, pressure, bloating, or bowel movement issues. To help improve the health of your gut, you will want to use the following advice.

Get More Healthy Bacteria In Your System

Bacteria is not something that is always a bad thing. There is such a thing as good bacteria in your intestines and you will want to build up a good supply of those. An easy way to do this is to take some quality probiotic supplements. If you want help in finding the best supplements for your needs, you can speak with your doctor and ask for a suggestion for a quality brand. Your doctor may even be able to prescribe something that can be covered by your medical insurance.

Determine If You Have Food Allergies Or Sensitivities

It may be difficult for a doctor to quickly find out if you are allergic or sensitive to anything. To quickly find out if there is anything in your normal diet that is the cause of all of the troubles with your gut, you will want to do an elimination diet. Start by cutting out things such as yeast, gluten, corn, dairy, eggs, and soy for a couple of weeks. It is vital that you go for a while without such things so your body can fully adjust. Then, slowly start adding those things back into your diet one at a time. Give it a week between the addition of each new thing. This way, if you are going to have a bad reaction to any of it, you will be able to quickly determine just what it is.

Get More Of The Good Fat Into Your Diet

Not all fat is bad. The good facts can easily be added to your diet by taking some omega-3 supplements. These supplements will help your gut health start to balance out, as well as reduce the amount of inflammation that you may be experiencing in your gut. You can find the right gut health supplement at your local pharmacy or department store that has a health section.

Should you continue to have problems with your gut, you will want to consult with a gastrointestinal doctor.

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.
