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.

Photo: Wikimedia Commons--Zap2itBut for Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita, a gluten-free diet is just the start. She's trying anything and everything to help their autistic three-year-old son Nicholas, including some pretty high-tech therapies.

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...

No anti-sm(lupus)? Yes, anti dsDNA is for SLE(lupus). No ENA panel,anti-RNP, anti-SS-A, anti-SS-B, anti histone, scl-70, etc? I'd ask for a referral, if you feel that there is something going on. I think that would be a logical step because of the positive ANA and lack of investigation. 1:640 is ...

My MCH is always high too. Have some other oddities but doc always say labs are great as well. I dont think they ever really bother with the MCH.

Hi there! I follow a low histamine diet that Cycling Lady brought to my attention a long time ago. Citrus fruits and their juices are histamine releasing foods. High histamine levels can cause hives just like in an allergic reaction. Here's a helpful site: https://www.histaminein...

Thank you! Exactly!

No, no, no! Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating! I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat. It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not si...
