Here’s the Press Release on Julie Matthew’s Nourishing Hope website. It’s a briefer easier read then the full study. And supports what some of the Functional Medicine and Autism world has been saying now for initially about a little over a decade ago. http://nourishinghope.com/arizona-state-university-study-proves-that-nutrition-and-dietary-intervention-effective-at-improving-autism/?inf_contact_key=3231dc7280accc66e9c76c317919f4580ebf1a22183ef5e5cedb94be309e371
That Nutrition And Dietary Intervention
Effective at Improving Autism
Contrary to historical medical beliefs and public education and perception, new controlled twelve-month study by Arizona State University professor shows a direct and irrefutable correlation between nutrition and healing autism symptoms.
“The positive results of this study confirm that a comprehensive nutritional and dietary intervention is proven and effective in improving non-verbal IQ, Autism behaviors, developmental age, and other symptoms in most individuals with ASD,” says Dr. James Adams, Director of the Autism/Asperger’s Research Program at Arizona State University.
The study measured the effects of six nutritional interventions introduced over the course of a year, including supplementation and a healthy allergen-free diet.

Many people will be able to understand the Press Release. It is much shorter and easier to digest then the full study which is more suited for health professionals who specialize in helping this community. The full study is also for parents and HF adults who can understand the full study. And those whom can accept the realities it supports.
Founder, Nourishing Hope for Autism
This post is mostly written buy the Julie Matthews team after the first two paragraphs- What bothers ASD and SPD children is often also what bothers adults with it as well. Whether your aware of it or not. Research backs this up.
I’m personally defiantly most interested in seeing the series of 5 “practitioner level” talks, which we will replay on a special encore day. I hope they will offer knowledge to me that isn’t heavily recycled from other Summit’s/books/speakers.
I am thrilled to invite you to the Nourishing Hope for Autism Summit – Free Online!
For 16 years, Julie Matthews of Nourishing Hope has provided scientifically based nutrition strategies that heal the symptoms and behaviors associated with Autism, ADHD, ADD and other developmental delays. Now, she has gathered twenty five leading experts to present the science, their clinical results, and steps parents can take right in their own kitchen to help their children with Autism.
Starting today, you can register to attend the online summit for free here:
Along the way you will:
– Discover nutrition and related strategies proven to improve the health, learning, and behavior of those with autism.
– Hear from scientists and wellness professionals together in conversation about how children with autism can recover – and how food, diet, and nutrition choices, as well as functional medicine strategies, can help.
– Learn about the underlying biochemistry of autism, therapeutic diets, supplements, and remedies that are supportive, and environmental toxins to avoid.
The strategies you will learn are science-backed approaches that are effective at improving the symptoms of autism and related childhood disorders.
Register at the URL//link above
This summit is unique because it focuses in on diet and nutrition to improve autism and related disorders – and is a cohesive educational event. Each conversation will leave you with actionable takeaways you can try at home, research further, or ask your physician about.
Register to attend -while it’s still free and gain the knowledge and confidence to put hope into action.
Together we are nourishing hope!

PS- This post is on this blog because the Summit is very specific to those who are meant to benefit from this specific blogs topic(s). While the Summit certainly may also help those with MCS and others, it is certainly more geared for helping those with complex IBS, Intestinal Permeability, and Sensory Processing Disorders.
PSS- And we have a series of 5 “practitioner level” talks, which we will replay on a special encore day. I’ll share more on those in the coming weeks
Black Friday at any in person location is a nightmare for those with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, a Sensory Processing Disorder, and like conditions. But what if I told you there was just as good sales online? Without sale sites getting overwhelmed and possibly crashing (Like on Black Friday itself!). What if ? The sales were better then Black Fridays sometimes. Possibly customized to your shopping habits. And some items were FREE. And I don’t mean buy one get one free either.Would you be interested THEN!? Then you NEED to be an Amazon Prime member. And then you NEED to check out this URL’s page listed below ASAP. This is defiantly TIME Sensitive.
You defiantly DO NOT need everything on this page. But, with a 30 day free trial and a 6 month free trial for students. You can’t AFFORD to NOT check this out. ! Especially since it’s only once a year. And it IS Sensory Friendly and Environmentally, Chemically-Safe!
PS.! It’s not just one day either.!

Did you see last weeks debut episode of the 1 hr show of Super Human? It aired at 9:01 pm EST on Fox. Right after, So You Think You Can Dance (One of my fav. shows). I’m thrilled it displayed Synesthesia (A rare Sensory Processing Disorder sub type) in a Gifted light. You can learn more about Synesthesia via other posts on this blog, and that shows episode (Among other places).
You can watch an abbreviated version of Super Human, Kaityln Nova’s impressive performance on the You Tube URL below. However, She is shown first on the season premier so, I’d see it on Fox NOW. Which includes a narrative video about her talent initially, also. But make sure to see who makes the top 3 in the last 4 minutes. And watch it to see who wins it as well! Fox NOW only works in the google chrome or safari search engine.
Kayla performs third on Super Human within the first 24 mins of Episode 1, of the show Super Human which airs on Mondays at 9 pm EST on Fox. The skills needed in her challenge are mostly some of the main challenges/weaknesses of those with a Sensory Processing Disorder. Explained buy the neuroscientist, neurosurgeon and judge on the show only if you watch the first episode.
You can watch now all FOX shows online for free on Fox NOW whenever you want after the show airs. Copy and paste this url into your browser to access the shows website to watch the first episode of this show that aired last Monday. With commercials it’s nearly 45 minutes in it’s entirety. But, watching just the first 24 mins and then the last 4 minutes to see who wins works too.
People with SPD, ADHD, ASD, and diagnosis’s that significantly effect one’s nervous systems. Are at the biggest risks to be negatively effected buy vaccine ingredients. And you might have been effected buy them and not know it. Weather you believe the ingredients caused your disability (ies/challenges or not) That is why it’s imperative you watch this series. And it won’t be free for to much longer. So go here https://go.thetruthaboutvaccines.com?ref=fbe2e88a-968e-4129-8a04-71495e454dd4 NOW to sign up. Warning- the info you will learn could make you REALLY mad/uncomfortable. If you’ve missed some of it sign up anyway. Trust me. It’s worth it.
You will learn about way more then vaccines. Some of the episodes are intense- just being real. So prepare for getting allot of energy and effort taken to watch them.
PS. This in my opinion (If you can afford it) Is worth buying too on it’s current sale prices.
Healthy at Home is a 4 week paid course focused on non toxic living. Starting on April 3rd. How to make your living space non toxic will make your sensory issues challenging or calmer and more manageable. While Meghan and Josh certainly aren’t sensory solution or ASD experts. Nor are they MCS experts. So, there will be suggestions that won’t work for you. They know how to live non toxic lives. To learn more go here now http://www.meghantelpner.com/?refer=425
Once on the above website scroll down a little to Healthy at Home. Then click learn more, for the details and an intro video.
I’m taking this course. To make sure I know everything I can on this topic. (In case I don’t know it all already). Also, for other reasons- that if you sign up you could learn. But, NOT because I don’t know how to live non-toxict.
Knowing me, you know I have either allot in common with you or someone you care about. Or have in the past. This puts me in a very unique position to help you and so many others. But, everyone needs support and excellent education. That’s why I could really use this scholarship to Full Body System’s (FBS).
I’d love your support if you like my video! Or if you find interesting! I have tons of Sensory Processing Disorder solutions! And experience in this area specifically already! Which I’ll share with my clients. The video was only allowed to be 60 seconds so could you please fit in checking it out? Go here For sharing on Facebook and LinkedIn: https://www.facebook.com/
Thanks for watching it either way!
On my update page on November first of this month I shared 1 of the stores that had/have great sales going on now that I’m a fan of. Since this blog caters to SPD and MCS reader’s I will say this. That store if you have MCS may not be a store environment you can handle. Especially while there incredible sales are on and if it’s a popular shopping time and day. Not only due to possible overwhelm. But, also for it’s scents/fragrances in the air. However, compared to a perfume/makeup/cologne store. It’s a very low scent/fragrant/ chemically filled environment. It didn’t bother me much if at all. And I went to a store in a very popular part of Manhattan in NYC. But, I’m the sensory solutions expert. So, I tolerate more then some. But, notice EVERYTHING. If you have MCS and wear a mask however you’ll be likely fine. And your purchased merchandise will only leave slightly fragranced. Most NT’s won’t notice what I’m talking about.
You can always shop through their app or website! And once you wash the clothing properly before wearing it (Which is a smart idea regardless of if it has fragrance in it or not) . The chemicals and smell will go away. The clothes sold through this manufacturer were created with chemicals (Like most clothing). If this is a problem for you. you already know who you are.
Now, wear are my Thank you’s!? Leave them in the comments section below!
PS. – The sales are happening through at least the New Year as well! So go now, before you miss out on a potential steal!
2. I earn nothing but, your respect and trust for this recommendation.
Did you know Auto immunity is frequently seen in those with ASD or Sensory Processing Disorders? It is! And with 1 out of 5 people with it. You NEED to learn how to prevent it, identify it, and if need be reverse it. Therefore, PLEASE check out the series Betrayal FOR FREE! Now- next week. HERE- https://betrayalseries.com/episode-2-a5frf01y off of my conference blog
I posted about a Summit I Very HIGHLY recommend! It’s on my http://onlineconferences4us.disabilityadvocate1.com/ . That applies to everyone and it started today for FREE! It’s only free for 6-8 days. So go sign up for it/pay for it NOW.
This does NOT mean I recommend everything the speakers say.
People with SPD, ADHD, ASD, any environmental Illness, and many others require more recovery time via sleep, then others. But other things require sleep too- Plants, Flowers, and Animals, if you really think about it.
Without the right amount of quality sleep allot of things alive today would be, well dead, or medically less healthy. It even effects your Sensory Processing Disorder’s daily tolerance intake. Which can effect what you eat and how you feel physically as well as mentally. And we do know that Sensory Processing Disorder has a mental component to it. Don’t we?
Therefore go visit here and sign up for, attend, and possibly purchase the Sleep Summit! Going on NOW!
Today I created a change.org petition so that people with SPD, Roscia, ASD, IBS, / and a number of other conditions could live healthier more easily. Making your own soups are not hard at all. IF you have already the right broth or base for them. Making other dishes more appetizing or possible will also be a possibility then. Allot of stock or broth isn’t very healthy for people who can’t tolerate any of the unnecessary added ingredients in all created stocks and broths on the market that are pre-made. Most of which has onion/high sodium. Both of which aren’t sensory friendly. And in some cases are highly unhealthy. Creating your own is very time-consuming. And you create with it allot of extra poultry, meat, veggies/seafood at times with it. Which you may then eventually throw out especially if your only cooking for 1/2 people. So, if I get enough signatures. I will try to get a manufacturer to create for us 1/more broths that work for us. Please go here for more details. To sign, possibly comment on, and certainly share. Thanks!
I always have had difficulty finding quality, sensory friendly belts. Being poor (Like many of us.) This is especially important. How long they last, and the appearance quality matter especially going on interviews. People with sensory issues (Even as adults) need great size selection. We bloat more, have digestive issues more likely, and have a higher percentage of certain auto-immune conditions. Many of which, can make weight fluctuate. Similar to those with celiacs, colitis, or chron’s disease. Many I’m sure would appreciate high quality belts that fit this criteria. Also, due to high stress- that also sometimes have affected our bloats and distensions.
We need them more for practical reason’s not embellishment purposes. To keep slacks and some pants up. Not to dress up a dress, etc- as much. But, at the same time they MUST be only 3 quarters of an inch wide. Not have a rough texture, and be stylish and affordable. If you can create this or know someone who could. PLEASE do so ASAP and sell them online. Then contact me. And I promise if they meet the grade. I will buy and help you advertise them.
The female ones need to also be made to wear with low waist styled (Like hip location) pants. And make sure extra small’s and XL and possibly even XXL’s are available without a price increase.
In the past, my posts have influenced, supported/ if not help create. Certain products. Besides those with disabilities. I also get many supporters visit my blogs as well. Visitors often that are NOT our parents or relatives. My hope. Is this post contributes in similar ways.
We thank you in advance for your concern(s)/efforts. Please contact me. If you need further creation feedback/guidelines.
Just this month. Facebook added at least 3 more IBS support groups. Which I love! What I mean buy that is I love that they exist and are quickly gaining new members. Because the more options. The more awareness of our community is required from those in society. Which means more research, recognizing of the condition, and care is being addressed for this condition.
Wouldn’t it be awesome if it was as widely understood and respected as the GF world now is!? I certainly think so. IBS is a condition that people with a large variety of conditions (Diagnosed or not) have. Examples of other conditions it’s often if not always seen with are ASD, Fibromyalgia, SPD, ADHD, Dysgraphia, Dysphagia, PTSD, certain eating disorders, MCS, and GERD.
Regardless of when your diagnosed with it. IBS is a life long condition. It may not be realized at first. But, that’s partly due to lack of awareness. It’s also due to lack of knowledge/ease of it’s solutions. Even if the solution is temporary.
So, if you have it. I encourage you to find a support group or two for it. Regardless of if it’s an in person group or online. And make sure to visit it often if it’s online. To participate, help others, relate to/ ask for help in. And buy the way, there ARE free, non-facebook, online IBS support groups.
What ever you do. If you have it. Please recognize it and deal with it the best you can. Be part of the research if that’s something you can do safely as well.
Also, ASD is now and will be even more in the future contributing to this research big time. Everyone with ASD has IBS. Even if it’s not officially diagnosed yet.
In 1997 the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders declared every April to be Irratible Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Awareness Month. The biggest reasons I am very thankful for this. Is because 1. It shows that the traditional medical field admits it’s a legit real issue, 2. It works towards important entire world accurate awareness and research for it. 3. It helps Sensory Processing Disorders also get a real reputation as well. As you may know in the past (And still some today, Unfortunetly) . Both IBS and SPD at times can be seen as non existant. / Not a big deal. At least according to some traditional medicine mindsets. Regardless, of how wrong. That may be.
IBS is especially bad for those with a combination of SPD with atleast 1 additional co-morbid diagnosis. So, those who have ASD and SPD for example have particular difficulties with this Digestive Sensory Disorder. Another words. IBS is a Sensory disorder and sometimes a sensory Processing Disorder sub type/ branch of SPD. Although, modern or traditional medicine thinks about 25% (Tops) of the world has IBS. Functional medicine actually believes that percent is way to low. And it is in reality higher. I agree, it is higher. I’m not sure. How much though.
Sure IBS may not kill us. But, there still real problems. And it is not only in your head literally not figuratively. If at all. And even the parts of them that maybe in our head literally. IBS symptoms and needs need just as much recognition and respect as any other parts of these differences. After all. We can’t ignore the micro biome brain connection. Right!?
What we don’t need is – blaming thoughts, comments, or excuses coming from yourself or ANYONE ELSE. And especially not ignorance or avoidance from others/ the individual with them.
While it’s true IBS has things in common with conditions like Colitis, Chrohns, Irratible Bowel Disease, and certain other conditions. IBS is ignored far more frequently. And that effects everyone with it. Because when it’s ignored, research is less. Seriousness of it seams lower. And the need for awareness, solutions, and services. Are harder to come buy. And as I’ve shown in certain posts. On my blogs. IBS is certainly not a condition to laugh at or ignore. And NOT just because it could kill.
Here you can find some solid basics on it though. I don’t love how the below URL states some things. And it’s missing some key facts. But, to be honest. I looked awhile. And couldn’t find any 1 URL that I loved to help you learn about IBS. But, this url is pretty good.
The other conditions mentioned above get more acceptance from society because in traditional medicine they are thought of as more deadly. Also, sometimes those conditions don’t always change what you can or cannot eat. However, that’s likely, slowly changing too.
Functional medicine however, treats IBS as a more common condition. Because lifestyle choices and being healthy can often significantly improve (If not cure in the FM mindset) the quality of life of someone with IBS. Also, Functional Medicine exists to serve where traditional medicine fails or could use more work.
Because of the severity of Colitis, Chron’s, and other Irratible Bowel Diseases. Modern medicine, serve patients with these conditions pretty effectively.
I would say my mindset is Integrative. Which buy the way, (Shh! Don’t tell anybody this. Okay!?) is the best/ only kind to have- if you ask me.! 😉
My book(s), will cover this topic with more depth.
Those with SPD are frequently the most complicated clients/patients to treat. Our GI issues are multiple and therefore we need more then 1 set of healthy protocols to be at our best. And in some cases, just to survive.
Dietary needs are very bio-individual. Especially, for this group of people.
Although Diets are created to help people with sp. dietary/lifestyle needs. Most health coaches, wellness coaches, and sometimes even Functional Medicine Practitioner’s often specialize in a niche of clients/patients who don’t have numerous dietary needs caused buy more then a few disturbing symptoms. To master caring for a specific type of patient they need specific protocols that are superb for each separate set of root causes. Also, this makes a novice (non professional) have an easier time digesting and executing their sp. dietary needs if they don’t have numerous root causes.
So these are the reasons every/ if not many common diets. Don’t incorporate multiple sp. diets. Or have at times. Cross over criteria between 2/ more of them.
A few months ago I watched The Big Short in movie theaters. It’s about the housing crises in the mid 2000’s and it shares real stories. But, with very good explanations so many can understand it. It’s an important film for adults to see. However, there were a couple brief parts in the movie that could trigger sensory reactions visually/in an auditory fashion. So, I recommend if you see it, to do so, where you can control the sound. And are comfortable in a home like environment to minimize sensory reactions.
You can learn more about the movie here.
I do NOT recommend going to church tonight for Christmas Eve. Sorry for the delay EST and PST time zone (Among others). Between the fragrant chemicals that are especially festive on adults. And incense throughout the parish. It’s a MCS, mold sensitive, and sensory hell. People with mold sensitivity can react extremely poorly to chemicals, weather, and even clothing without mold on or in it. And no one to my knowledge likes the incense smell. But, it’s especially bad for people with these issues.
Instead go during the day on Christmas. It will be a far better service too.
I’m going to be effected buy my exposures from tonight and tomorrow at least for the next week. Ugg! Society. When will they obey for improved health?
