Diet books that I’ve found particularly helpful:
Special Diets for Special Kids, by Lisa Lewis, Phd. (1998) — the first 100 pages are very insightful – I consider pgs 29-35, “the Caroline pages.” The remainder is a list of recipes.
Nourishing Hope for Autism, by Julie Matthews (2008) – excellent information about biochemical pathways and the specific roles of vitamins and minerals
Fed Up, by Sue Dengate, (1998) - illustrates how to do an elimination diet to prevent allergies and food reactions in people of all ages
Special-Needs Kids eat Right, by Judy Converse, MPH, RD, LD (2009) An easier and more interesting read.
Special-Needs Kids go Pharm-Free, by Judy Converse, MPH, RD, LD (2010)
Eating for Autism, by Elizabeth Strickland, MS, RD, LD (2009) — recipes.
Special Diets for Special Kids TWO, by Lisa Lewis, Phd. (2001) – more recipes.
Helpful books that explain various biomedical treatments for the “autism” medical conditions:
Healing our Autistic Children (2011) By Julie Buckley explains the DAN! protocol step-by-step.
Children with Starving Brains (2004) by Jaquelyn McCandless, MD, third edition
Healing the New Childhood Epidemics: Autism, ADHD, Asthma, and Allergies: The Groundbreaking Program for the 4-A Disorders (2006) by Kenneth Bock and Cameron Stauth
Healing and Preventing Autism (2010) by Jenny McCarthy
Cutting-Edge Therapies for Autism 2011-2012 (2011) by Ken Siri
Great autism websites (biomedical treatments):
The Autism Research Institute, ARI - formerly Defeat Autism Now, or DAN!.
Talk About Curing Autism - This parent-support site was created by a mom several years ago. Amazingly professional and free. Join theBirmingham group, and ask for a local sponsor. They recruit great speakers too!
Dr. Kurt Woeller’s website has great video explanations of the biomedical approach.
Dr. Amy Yasko’s site goes a step further and explains the need to do specific genetic testing in addition to the DAN! (ARI) protocol.
