The science of autism as a whole body system condition is maturing. Research is demonstrating contributions from gut microbes, immune and infectious issues. Whole brain health impacts how well we can learn and think. Stress, allergies, sleep, sensory thresholds, attention and learning are all linked. We will review practical everyday implications for how we eat, take care of our physical environments and manage stress for ourselves and our autistic loved ones that can make living and functioning go much better.
