What is Biomedical Treatment?
Receiving the news that your child has been diagnosed with autism can be a heartbreaking moment for any parent. Autism, also known as autism spectrum disorder, is an extremely complicated developmental disability. There are many methods used to treat autism, but the effectiveness of a treatment depends on the child. Because autism is unique to each person, some treatments may or may not work. If you’re considering treatment options for your child, consider biomedical treatment.
Biomedical treatment involves adjusting your child’s diet to combat the symptoms of autism. This will require a thorough study of your child’s medical history, your family’s history and lab testing. When you do decide to implement a new diet into your child’s life, it is extremely important to ease into it.
Biomedical treatment includes carefully monitoring what your child eats. You’ll have to completely eliminate certain foods from their diet, while including others. Your child’s new diet could include:
- Eliminating casein: Casein is a protein present in dairy products, such as milk, butter, cheese and yogurt. Read food labels carefully.
- Eliminating gluten: Gluten is a protein found in grains. This will include anything with wheat, oats, barley, rye and much more. Once again, checking your labels is important.
- Eat organic: It’s crucial to eat organic in order to avoid pesticides and hormones.
