Jacqueline Laurita Goes Gluten-free, High-Tech to Help Autistic Son

Celiac.com 08/16/2013 - Research suggests that many people with autism are sensitive to gluten, and plenty of people turn to gluten-free diets to help their autistic children.

Jacqueline spends a great deal of her time researching her son’s condition, and finding new therapies to help his development.

Laurita is currently trying a gluten- and casein-free (GFCF) diet, and she’s even trying out a hyperbaric oxygen chamber bed, which is said to reduce inflammation, and increase oxygen levels and blood flow to the brain.

She decided to give it a try after reading that hypbaric oxygen chambers might help children on the [autism] spectrum.

Still, Laurita is not counting on a any miracles. She points out that not every treatment will work, but they might help, "so you gotta try…" Adding with a smile that "even Michael Jackson had one!”

Yeah! I like that she is open and trying everything to help her son's autism. May I suggest, eliminating corn, soy and milk. My best wishes to her and her family.

If eliminating corn, soy and milk... what diet would you suggest? My hubby was recently diagnosed with celiac and corn seems to be the basic of every gluten-free product... sorry, I'm just very new to all this... lol...
