Nourishing Neurodiversity Brochure

Nourishing Neurodiversity is a 12-week ‘online’ Functional Medicine for autism programme. Although it is aimed at families with a child who is neurodivergent, it is equally suitable for people of any age with any autism spectrum disorder. The programme offers education, meal plans, printable grocery lists, booklets and guidance from the Institute for Functional Medicine, family support and much more. the aim is to help you get to the root cause of the symptoms and behavioural patterns around ASD such as poor digestion, poor sleep, loss of or delayed communication skills, repetitive behaviour patterns, lack of awareness of danger, poor eye contact, difficulty in social situations, poor sleep, poor focus and concentration to name just a few of the traits we have been able to successfully address with this programme.

Personalized Nutrition Plans

Once your child has had a metabolic assessment using a straightforward urine test that can be done at home, we will be able to see which nutrients are lacking in the whole biochemical ‘soup’ that is needed to ensure bodily systems such as neurotransmitters work efficiently and effectively. This knowledge will then be used to determine whether supplements would help and whether a change in diet is needed.


Research findings:

“The positive results of this study suggest that a comprehensive nutritional and dietary intervention is effective at improving nutritional status, non-verbal IQ, autism symptoms, and other symptoms in most individuals with ASD. Parents reported that the vitamin/mineral supplements, essential fatty acids, and HGCSF diet were the most beneficial.”
