    Question Alternatives to Autism/ADHD medication?

    Hi all,

    My son (age 5) is diagnosed with ADHD and Autism. While he is currently on medication, I'm hoping to find more natural ways of dealing with this. I already have taken all artificial dyes out of his diet, and restrict him from caffeine. I read something about giving him more fish oil, or different vitamins. I was wondering if anyone has experience with this, and can point me in the right direction?

    Thanks!

    In many cases children who get angry or excited very easily are that way because they have learning or developmental delays. Their world is moving faster than they can catch up. It can get very frustrating especially, when a child has to make a transition from an activity or a place, just when they got settled in. Children with autism spectrum disorder and ADHD have been shown to have high levels of gluten, gliadin and casein peptides in their urine according to study.

    Thank you! I was looking at some gluten free diets, perhaps we will try that! Can't hurt right?
