As every autism parent knows, a diagnosis is just the beginning. Next step is to make sense of the bewildering array of challenges—including the constipation, sleep deprivation, and irritability shared by so many on the spectrum—and conflicting opinions about what to do. Standard practice is to medicate these symptoms, leaving the children to power through a fog of untreated health conditions.
Blending natural medicine with evidence-based science, The Un-Prescription for Autism is a parent’s lifeline. The detailed diagnostic tools, clear explanations, simple protocols, and Online Action Plan support vibrant health on the autism spectrum with safe, natural, over-the-counter supplements. Once the invisible health challenges are tamed, these kids can calm down and break out of their fog, get more out of school and therapy, and become the children you’ve always known they were meant to be.
Janet Lintala, DC founded and heads Autism Health!, which serves children and adults in 12 states. Her advice integrates the clinical expertise of a nonprescription autism practice with the firsthand experience only an autism parent can deliver.
Martha W. Murphy is an award-winning health writer.
