SCD & AUTISM
In 2001-2002, a handful of moms started using the SCD for their children who suffered from autism. As the children experienced positive results, news of the SCD began spreading within the autism community.
In September 2005, Elaine passed away at the age of 84. For those seeking guidance on using the SCD for symptoms of autism, we recommend the following resources:

The SCD, Autism, and Dairy Products
After trying the GFCF diet for our 2 year old son w/ autism spectrum disorder for 6 months with no results and no change in his yeast problems or gut dysbiosis, we have implemented the SCD diet. The ONLY WAY to understand the science behind this diet and why it can help not only those with Crohns, etc is to read this wonderful book and many times over. If you have a child on the autism spectrum it is worth your time to get this book and really think about what it says. Then take a look at your child's current diet and probable cupboard full of supplements. Then read the book again. Elaine is saving 1 child at a time with her book--it's up to all of us to spread the word. There is another and more nutritionally-sound world for our precious angels--who by the way are the most selective eaters on the planet. Buy this book and you won't be sorry you did!!!!
