Sensory Issues in Magazine’s

This post will name any magazine, digital or paperback that includes sensory issues in at least 1 article of it. With specific edition info, and how to get it. It must be written in ENGLISH. And I’ll update the post as needed.

Autism Parenting Magazines, paperback and kindle versions available (You Don’t need a a kindle for the kindle version, just a kindle reading app or icon on your computer.)   March 2014 edition and June and July 2014 Magazine’s).  Their are at least two issues in June. The June 4th issue, labeled issue 1, talks about diagnosing,  PSD.   All 4 issues are on amazon. But, I haven’t read, all of these sensory articles. 

 

Any magazine dedicated only too Sensory Issues. Is NOT included in THIS post. 

Sensory World

   Sensory World Organization, focuses mainly on sensory issues and SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder). Their organization is mainly for parents, teachers, children and teens with it, and caregivers that work with those with SPD.  However, some of it, also will help older individuals with these challenges and anyone who cares about them. They also, publish four times a year, the only internationally recognized magazine focusing only on SPD.  How great is it to have a MAGAZINE dedicated only too SPD struggles?! 

   Anyhow, the cheapest way to buy subscriptions to it, currently- is via this website.

   On that website (Just linked), you can also, find a couple free articles, to give you an idea of the magazine better.  Otherwise, I know the Apple, App Store has an app kinda, they place in there default, app newsstand app.   You can find it under the name of SF, which stands for it’s title, which is Sensory Focus. There cheapest digital subscription price is 15$ a yr. via iTunes it’s 21$ though and 7$ per issue.  The paperback, subscription price, starts at 25$ however.   Famous ASD authors sometimes write for SF, like Temple Grandin. 

   I hope this organization helps at least a couple of you, if only buy giving you hope that SPD, is actually, starting to get more recognition- world wide. 

Special Diet Types

  According to Julie Matthew’s, the world famous nutritionist, for special needs diets, these are the different types of diets one may go on/need. Since she included the raw food diet, I’m not sure why she didn’t include the FODMAPS diet. The raw food diet is probably not any harder than the FODMAPS diet for someone with special needs to go on. I know however why  I wouldn’t usually recommend the FODMAPS or raw food diet for most of us. But, that’s a different topic. 

   She probably didn’t include it in this list of diets ( that is the Elimination Diet)  since 1. One of it’s main goals differ from all the others.  And 2. It’s a discovery diet. See my next post on details for this  particular diet. 

Gluten-free casein free GFCF

Specific Carbohydrate  SCD

Low Oxalate

Raw food

I add

Inflammation
By Julie Matthews

In today’s fast paced world, with little rest, overloaded with toxins, and devoid of nutrients, inflammation is very common. Once triggered, it can be hard to shut off – and if certain biochemical processes persist, chronic inflammation can ensue.

Inflammation acts like a fire in the body, literally burning up many of our necessary nutrients. Inflammation can be triggered by infections, irritants, and biochemical processes that have gone awry. It creates pain, and can lead to cellular damage and a cascade of health problems.

In fact, inflammation is underlying most neurological and chronic disorders in children and adults. All of following conditions have been linked to inflammation:

Autism • Asthma • Allergies • ADHD • Autoimmune conditions • Depression Anxiety • Inflammatory Bowel disorders • Eczema • Schizophrenia

Inflammation is a necessary process for the immune system. When the body can’t shut it off however, it can cause serious problems. Inflammation in linked to heart disease, obesity, and diabetes, as well as the myriad of mental health and mood conditions described above.

And some substances that people use to “help” inflammation, like over the counter anti-inflammatories and cortisone creams, are generally ineffective in the long run and can have harmful side effects.

So what can you do? Prevention is a good start; take charge of avoiding common causes of inflammation – things you can influence, like food choices and toxic exposures.

Gluten, dairy, and soy are major food sources of inflammation. Alcohol, processed foods, caffeine, and sugar are also inflammatory. Pesticides can trigger asthma (inflammation) in people, so eat organically whenever possible. Fish oil is a natural anti-inflammatory, as are a variety of herbal supplements. Phytonutrients found in fruits and vegetables, and spices have anti-inflammatory properties that can be helpful; however, for some people the salicylates and other food chemicals can cause inflammation.

Also, talk with your integrative physician about inflammatory lab markers, and appropriate medical treatment. Sometimes the inflammatory process needs to be stopped, and there are useful methods/meditations that can help. As you are exploring and working on this, I suggest beginning with the food, toxin and lifestyle factors that you can address at home. This may provide you some relief (mild to major) and help you and your doctor determine next steps.
