Nutritional Interventions for Autism Spectrum Disorder and ADHD

INTRODUCTION

Nutritional deficiencies are a common issue for individuals with autism and ADHD, in addition to food sensitivities and intolerances. Nutrition is important for everyone, and sometimes even the correction of a single deficiency can create dramatic improvements.

 

Today’s episode features guest Denise Voight, a clinical nutritionist with a Masters of Science in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine, specializing in Nutritional Intervention for autism spectrum disorders and ADHD. Her passion for nutritional biochemistry for the past 20 years emerged from her own son’s struggle with ADHD. Now, she uses her expertise and compassion to help educate, empower, and support families affected by autism and ADHD.

 

CONCLUSION

Nutrition is the core modality of Functional Medicine. Instead of focusing on an isolated set of symptoms, it addresses the whole person – like genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors. As researchers continue to explore and speculate on the reasons for the rise in autism, may we continue to educate ourselves so that we may be better-equipped advocates for our loved ones.
