Summary, etc.:
The conventional approach to autism is to medicate difficult behaviors into submission, suppressing symptoms while leaving underlying health challenges untouched. Lintala shares the natural protocols used in her practice to dramatically improve the function and well-being of children on the spectrum. She targets the underlying issues, and corrects these overlooked conditions with digestive enzymes, probiotics, antifungals, and other nonpsychiatric treatments. Her results: a child who is more receptive to behavioral and educational interventions.
