Today's podcast discusses the benefits of a gluten-free, casein-free (GFCF) diet for children with autism spectrum disorder and ADHD.
Gut disorders are one of the most common medical conditions associated with autism. The CDC found that children with autism are three to five times more likely to suffer from chronic gastrointestinal disorders.
Researchers also found a link to gut disorders and autism severity in children. Toxins produced by abnormal gut bacteria may trigger or or worsen autism in children.
The good news is that some autistic and ADHD children's gut bacteria problems can be helped with diet and eating the right food is essential.
Learn in today's podcast what foods and chemicals to avoid for gut disorders, and what foods can help repair the gut lining.
We also discuss the role of glyphosate, one of the most commonly digested chemicals and how it can affect your health and the health of your child.
I'm extremely excited to welcome Gene Baur to the Ordinary Vegan Podcast! Gene is the co-founder and President of Farm Sanctuary, America's leading farm animal protection organization. Gene is an activist and author known for his work in the animal rights and food movement.
Gene Baur has been hailed as "the conscience of the food movement" by TIME magazine. For 25 years he has traveled extensively, campaigning to raise awareness about the abuses of industrialized factory farms.
What I love most about Gene Baur is his non-judgmental approach. He gently pries our eyes open with his compassionate message and teaches us to be an expression of what lives in our hearts.
Gene Baur will take questions from the Ordinary Vegan community on Facebook. We will cover a plethora of topics including his best-selling book "Living The Farm Sanctuary Life: The Ultimate Guide to Eating Mindfully, Living Longer, and Feeling Better Every Day," which has been described as "a beautiful picture of how we can all thrive without eating meat and harming animals." The book also includes practical advice as well as 100 delicious plant-based recipes.
