AUTISM – CAUSES, SYMPTOMS AND FOODS THAT CAN HELPCHECK HERE

Gut and Brain Connection in Autism:

A gene mutation disrupts neuron transmission in the brain, which has been identified as a cause of autism, as well as causing gut dysfunction. Can modifying the bacteria in the stomach which interacts with the brain (via the gut-brain axis), enhance mood and behaviour? “YES”! People with autism frequently have gut issues. Research supports a gut-brain nerve system relationship in autism- treating the gut might help with behavioural abnormalities linked with autism.

Introducing prebiotics and probiotics rich foods to the child with autism can help with both digestive and behavioural issues. Gut bacteria produce bioactive substances or metabolites that increase the activity of GABA receptors that help to regulate brain function, sensory processing, social development (Speech delay and interaction) and also repetitive behaviour.

How PREBIOTIC FIBRE HELPS?

According to study, changes in the gut microbiota might occur within 2-3 weeks after changing food pattern and adding prebiotic fibres. Prebiotic dietary fibre also helps to increase the amount of healthy bacteria, which in turn helps to alleviate concerns about the same. People in some studies said it improved their quality of life.

WHAT CAUSES FREQUENT STOOLS?

The reaction of frequent potty is called the Gastrocolic Reflex. This is the normal reaction in the body whose intensity may vary. This reflex is generated when food hits your stomach. Once this happens it releases a hormone which signals your body to move food through the colon and then out of the body. This response affects some people more frequently and intensely than others.

Gut is made up of good bacteria and the bad bacteria generates as a result of our lifestyle, medication and food habits. When there is imbalance in this gut bacteria (gut dysbiosis) i.e., bad bacteria overpower good bacteria, then these concerns of frequent stools along with other digestive and overall develops.

HOW FIXING GUT WILL REDUCE THIS?

A lot of studies and research has stated that an unhealthy gut or certain digestive disorder may speed up the movement of food through the colon. This can be minimized with the use of prebiotic-rich foods, which have been shown to impact the makeup of beneficial gut bacteria (Probiotics).

Probiotics are responsible for keeping the bad bacteria in check. In addition, it helps in slowing down the bowel movements and reducing the gas production by balancing gut flora.
