Does candida cause autism? What’s the relationship between candida and autism?
This is what you are going to find out in this post.
I know that the subject of candida on autism maybe extremely sensitive to a lot of people, this is the reason why I’m going to tell you from the very first that what you are going to find out in this post is just an opinion, my sincere believes when it comes to candida and autism, and most importantly: I’m not giving you here medical advice, if you need treatments or consulting, please, do so with a doctor.
By the way, I’m not a doctor!
So, let’s begin our talk about the relationship between candida and autism?
Well, you may believe that candida has nothing to do with autism, but the reality is that candida is highly linked to autism in my opinion.
It’s because we are dealing with our gut flora, billions and billions of microorganisms which live inside our intestines, they are the ones responsible for balancing our hormones, training our immune system, and even developing our brains when we are infants!
And this is why candida is highly linked to autism in my opinion and that of many doctors as well.
At first, we all have some candida strands present in our intestines, but the problem is that our current diet makes us constipated, it increases our inflammations, and even worse, we eat foods which are susceptible to increase candida colonies.
The worst foods you can eat when it comes to candida are processed carbohydrates which are deprived of fiber, simple sugars, high fructose corn syrup, and even white flour.
You need to avoid these as much as possible, in fact, if a food contains one of these ingredients, it should be banned from your diet and of course, that of your child as well!
So, what’s the relationship between candida and autism?
It’s very easy to understand, when we are kids, our brain needs different hormones and different essential fatty acids to grow and increase connections.
Well, more and more scientific data is pointing to the relationship between our gut flora and the development of healthy brain function.
According to many scientists nowadays, if, during early stages of brain development, your child does not have adequate gut flora, his or her brain function will be highly altered!
To tell you the truth, I have two little daughters, they are three and two years old, and they were conceived when I had terrible candida issues, this is the reason why I don’t feed my children processed foods, I don’t give them supplements, and even better, I only give them plant foods which are rich in fiber.
According to many scientists, the best foods to feed our gut flora are the ones rich in fiber, so, my advice when it comes to treating candida is to give kids high-fiber foods, whole wheat bread, beans, lots of vegetables, tomatoes, dark green leafy vegetables, and most importantly, lots of starches, potatoes, whole wheat bread, whole grain products, and lots of sweet potatoes.
Trust me, these foods are going to heal you if you have candida, and they will increase your gut flora healthily as well.
