More and more research confirms that 70-85% of people with ASD have a treatable gastrointestinal disease or condition like Colitis, Crohn's, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Celiac Disease or GERD (Acid Reflux). Leaving these conditions untreated causes pain, which causes aggression, inability to learn, maladaptive behaviors, self-injurious behaviors and can result in serious complications and death. Once treated, we see drastic improvement in the symptoms known as autism. Once they are pain-free, they can learn, attend, be happy and healthy, which is what we all want for our loved ones with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Symptoms of Gastrointestinal distress include posturing (see below), aggression, self-injurious behaviors, constipation, diarrhea, waking in the night, toe walking, bloated belly after age 2.
