Has anyone heard of giving your child probiotics helps with autism.
My child takes probiotics and they help tremendously. He actually takes them because he has Colitis but they help them in other areas. When we tried to stop the probiotics, he started acting out more. I suspect that he developed a tummy ache and he couldn't tell me. We watched him closely to see if he was different without them and it was obvious that he needed them.
We all take probiotics..not sure if it helps with my sons autism or not I'm just a big believer in probiotics ;)
we do it helps alot
I just started one of mine on them 2 weeks ago. I think his tummy has been hurting for years, and am hoping these help.
My son takes probiotics but not for his autism.
Quoting BellaMama7: What types of probiotics are helping your kiddos with improvement? Ideas please :)
I'm not sure about helping with autism, but it does help with bowel problems.
Yes, My husband read up on it. Me personally "I" don't see a difference in his behavior but our son does have less gas and bowel problems and makes him regular. So we give him a round of them every month. But if you are going to do it go to your pharmacist and ask for them. TRUE Probiotics come refrigerated to stay active the ones on the shelf don't do a thing .

We use Klaire Labs Vital-10 10+ billion CFUs. You can get it on Amazon. We were using a grocery store brand that wasn't as strong and our naturopath said my son would have to take 40 of those a day to get what he needed. She recommended the Klaire Labs one. It comes as a powder and I put 1/4 teaspoon in my sons apple juice a day and mix it up really well. He can't even taste it.
I also give him a powder enzyme with DDP IV to help aide with his digestion and this has been a HUGE help. He is much more regular now and is actually starting to nibble on some new foods. I think the combo makes his belly feel much better.
