The Ortho Molecular Answer


  • Individuals with autism require proper nutrition, vitamin and mineral supplementation along with expert psychological help
  • Food allergies play important role in the development of this disease
  • Allergies to dairy products and wheat, along with other staple foods in one's diet, are suspected to result in a clinical diagnosis of autism.
  • Often times allergies are overlooked as a potential cause for autism because many doctors of modern medicine do not consider them to be a potential cause.
  • Many children with diagnosis of autism have been symptom-free when dairy and wheat are eliminated from their diets


If the cause of autism is suspected to be reactions to food, an Ortho Molecular therapist may likely determine the source by taking a detailed food history and placing the client on the elimination diet:

Elimination diet

  • Remove foods to which one is allergic or which are toxic for a minimum of two weeks.
  • Monitor symptoms to see if there is improvement.
  • Reintroduce each food one at a time to determine which foods are causing an adverse reaction. If health deteriorates with the introduction of a specific food then it is toxic to your body and should be avoided, often for life.

Common Suspects

  • dairy
  • wheat
  • staple foods in diet eaten every three days or so
