We had a chiropractic appointment for Caleb the other day, and it was very interesting. Basically, I just take Caleb there for help with supplements, and for muscle testing for deficiencies. I'm always amazed at how our chiropractor puts physiology of the body into plain, understandable language. He was talking about how important oils are for the body, especially in winter. Not only are the fat-soluble vitamins low (like vitamin D), omega 6 and 3s are very low as well. He taught me to examine elbows, the hairline, and especially the lips to look for dry patches, indicating being low in oils. Since oils are the "food for the brain" as he put it, it's SO necessary to maintain healthy oils in the body, especially when you have autism as my son does. He also taught me to check for ketones in first morning urine (with a simple strip you can get from the pharmacy) to see that Caleb is spilling at least some ketones into his urine. This lets you know that his body is using fats for brain fuel and not just simple sugars (which can leave you with a quick fix, but also a crash later). Thus I have Caleb now on a tsp of olive oil with meals, a supplement to help digest and utilize oils, and also omega 3s (DHA). So far, Caleb just seems much happier, and has the "softer" look to his eyes that I love to see ;)
Just to keep updated with the glutathione.....I'm giving it twice a day now, and will probably increase to 3 times a dy next week. Speech is better again, but still not up to where I'd like it to be. I do think it's working though!
