Researchers claim probiotic effects on children with autism-like symptoms, boost their behavior, and improve their dysbiosis. The Food and Drug Administration categorizes probiotics as supplements, not a medication, and therefore, does not regulate their quality.

This has been hypothesized for years. Now we have preliminary evidence to suggest that indeed there is an imbalance of bacteria in a subgroup of individuals with autism. If we can confirm this, then in theory, probiotics, or “good” bacteria, may help bring back equilibrium and health. But there’s a lot we don’t know.

Lombard then proposed that mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation defects could cause abnormal brain metabolism in children with autism, leading to lactic acidosis and decreased serum carnitine levels. Probiotics & Antibiotics Both Implicated Ironically, both probiotics AND antibiotics are implicated in D-lactate acidosis.

Autism is an inflammatory condition (from SIBO, microglial priming, linoleic acid exposure, AGE exposure) combined with a toxic encephalopathy from SIBO (production of propionic acid). The propionic acid makes the kids act a little drunk and when the gut is stabilized, they can improve a little or a lot from this within just a few week.

Make sure your probiotic has the 2 most valuable groups of bacteria, Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. You don’t want to only take the supplements you find, but you’ll also want to eat probiotic foods like sauerkraut, miso, and kombucha, just to name a few. Vitamins. Vitamins D, E, and Calcium seem to be deficiencies in many children with autism.

Probiotics: Aside from enzymes, probiotics are a great way to improve the immune system and GI functioning. Magnesium and Melatonin: Most ASD children battle with staying asleep, so magnesium and melatonin are incredible way s to help them improve their sleep quality and quantity. Glutathione: Helps detoxification and reduces oxidative stress.

I will also do a post in the coming days about probiotics. They are an essential tool for kids with Autism, but what most people don’t know is that some raise histamine, some are neutral and some lower histamine, so of course if you think histamine is a problem, you want to make sure you are not using any that raise it.
