MINDSHIFT (takeaways)

  1. Early diagnosis is critically important in getting your child the services they need. The sooner you start the better the outcome.
  2. Researching diet, medical remedies, and other outlets such as detoxification is worth looking into. Researching other avenues only helps your child to think, cope, and function. There is an entire biomedical component that can help your child with neurological challenges that is tied to the gut.
  3. Your child may have autism and what he/she puts into his/her body everyday is going to affect their brain everyday moving forward. Research shows that there is a gut and brain connection and that diet can make a dramatic difference in your child’s behavior and neurological functioning.
  4. You go through life and there are certain things that happen to you and something can fly by and you may not even realize that one experience or that one conversation or that one person you met has just taught you something. You may not realize it right away and that’s what the quote at the beginning of the podcast means... you can find hope and happiness and inspiration in the most strangest of places.
