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
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.

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.!
Copy and paste the above URL into your favorite search engine’s search box. And then press enter/go!
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!
You hopefully here allot if you’ve been following me and the conferences I’ve invited you too (via my Onlineconferences4us blog) to eat real and whole foods. And possibly to skip the processed stuff. But do you know why that is? And is all processed food bad for you? Or simply just not good for you? And if not, what is safe? And what isn’t? Here are the answers.
But first. There are two definitions of processed foods. One is any food that isn’t required to be and cooked before consuming. The second definition is the one this post and most people mean when saying anything about real food. Which is any food that isn’t fresh nuts, fruits, meat, poultry, or veggies. And anything with more then 1/2 ingredients. So, frozen veggies don’t count as processed food even though the veggies have changed to a frozen state and are slightly less nutritious possibly then there fresh refrigerated equivalents.
Whole, real foods ARE ideal for you to have as much as possible. Few processed foods are really good for you. And everything is dependent on your individual needs. And what you’d otherwise be eating. So relative partly due to lifestyle.
Assuming any possible processed food item( s) don’t have any nasty sprays added on them like glyphosate/ GMO and no unhealthy ingredients like dyes, sugar, corn syrup, preservatives, ect. Processed food is well, processed. Meaning taken out of nature’s original state and mixed up some if not a lot already for you. So, some of your digestive work was done for you prior to ingesting it. Which of course helps you since it’s often pre cooked or prepped for you at least some if not entirely. Making your prepared time possibly allot easier if not non existent.
Keeping in mind that sometimes
But, often. Especially with those with weakened or challenged immune systems. Processed food in at-least 1 way is actually harder to digest. Because,- your body has a more difficult time identifying the ingredients and then not knowing sometimes what to do with the food item(s). It can be tricked if certain ingredients are present or if you have a sensitivity to 1 of the ingredients in that food item as well.
Other reason’s they state to avoid these processed foods are the following.
It’s disabling your advanced digestion capabilities (Not stretching them another words).
You don’t know everything going into your body. Even if your a pro at reading labels. And who is now a days!?
Sometimes there more expensive due to the convenience.
They discourage u from having real cooking skills. An important life skill.
U miss out on natures candy./ the taste and benefits of real food.
Your money supports the wrong causes. Not farmers but, packing and manufacturing companies. And possibly being indirectly pro GMO. Even if the item is GMO free. For the most part. Occasionally to convenience prep services.
Higher likelihood you’ll have or get health problems immediately, later on, or both. Sometimes u won’t identify with till later on.
There are a few (at MOST) partial to complete product exceptions to this rule.
Do you celebrate Easter or Passover? If so, which one?
I celebrate Easter! But, without the sweets, alcohol, spices, food intolerances, and gluten. Unlike most of my family. My family celebrates mostly with all the above. Why I won’t say, to copy me (Even if that’s the smartest thing to do, I’m sure some of you might laugh if I did). I will say, keep in mind your health, sensory needs, addiction factors, routines, and how those things will effect you both short and long term. Not just how they effect you. But, how your actions, delivery of actions, and the lack of them. How they effect, or may influence other’s as well. Even if it isn’t always obvious, when someone else notices them and let’s your actions change theirs. (Children are very easily influenced.) But, so are some adults with certain disabilities as well. Like some with ASD.
But, if your an adult. Most of all. Don’t get unwound from alcohol. That’s key no matter what extra differences you have, true. But, those who celebrate with you should appreciate you for you. And not for what alcohol makes you become. ( Same is true for any other toxin that may just be one for you and not them) If this isn’t true, there toxic. And you need, an untoxic family or group of close friends to celebrate with. If you celebrate at all.
If you need to/ should stay sober, in routine, and avoid what’s toxic, DO SO. Stay strong. And please know. You are SO not alone. But, do it tactfully.
