Article – Gut Bacteria & Autism: How to Use It to Your Advantage

From Elemy

According to newer medical research, children with autism seem to have less diverse gut bacteria in their microbiome compared to their neurotypical peers.

While the interaction between the microbiome, brain health, and developmental or behavioral health is complex, finding ways to diversify your child’s gut microbiome — through a healthy diet and, with guidance, dietary supplements — can potentially improve your child’s behaviors.

When your child feels better, they may have reduced feeding problems, which are often a struggle for children with autism.
