Q. I would like to hear from you.

I'm searching help for my son, who is suffering from Autism. I was wondering if any of the parents of children with Autism have noticed any changes when they change their children eating habits. If so, have you noticed any significance in the improvement of your child's behavior? I would like to hear from you.
A1I have a sweet little daughter who has autism. When I diagnosed her with autism, I put her on diet and trust me that I have noticed a significant change. I suggest you to give her home brand of safe food that will help more.
A2Hi there. Yes there is a big difference when you make changes with the childs eating habits. One thing we found, give your child soy milk instead of vitamin D, 2%, or fat free. A doctor for our son, Dr Robert Elghammer in Danville Illinois, said it digests alot better than regular milk. He had told me autism is linked with the stomach and the pancreas. When we switched to soy milk, he had less temper tantrums. One kind of food to switch to would be stay away from oat cereals. Go to Rice Chex, Rice Krispies, also rice cakes with low fat peanut butter. The rice is easier on the digestive tract. Hope these help you. Mellou

Q. How do I make him listen?

Hi, My kid is so irrespective and just we have diagnosed him with ADHD. He is just seven years old and makes fun of his friends. It seems that they do not like him. Also if he does not like anyone, he seems to be uncontrollable. He never listens to me. How do I make him listen? I am getting stressed due to this.
A1Yes he needs control, but within your parameters. For instance you offer two of meal choices, ask him which one he would like. Both are nutritious and within your financial and time budget,(By the way a very nutitious varied diet is good avoiding junk food, artificial ingredients etc). Use the same principal with other things. He needs a structured environment, a regular routine and he needs to know what to expect. Its a good thing to have a family conference on a daily basis, if needed one in the morning to dicuss the days agenda and one at night to dicuss concerns and the ne next day. these need only be a few minutes. If the plans change he needs to know why. This involves alot of talking and input on your part. He also needs to learn cause and affect, or what his choice of what to do, or not to do; will effect what the out come will be. Whenever a request is made, the reason for it must be given in a calm manner. Always praise positive behavior, not that silly "good job",
A2You need to relax, sis. One thing you can do is give him some control over small, everyday aspects of his life. Offer him choices when you can and let him choose. I strongly suggest you speak with his physician and ask for more information for your son. Please be honest. Best of Luck

Q. I keep on hearing about "gluten" and "casein". What are those?

When I was researching about autism in the net, I keep on hearing about "gluten" and "casein". What are those?
AThese are protein fractions in wheat and milk. Research suggests they are not digested normally in most persons with autism but are incompletely broken down into absorbable molecules. Many people with autism show some improvement when these two dietary proteins are omitted.

Q. I hear about Bipolar disorder and I would like to know about this.

Hi, this is SamirAuston. I hear about Bipolar disorder and I would like to know about this. Can any one tell me the best bipolar hospital?
A1Hi Samir again, do you know the film "Patch Adams"? This film is based on a true story. Watch this film and listen exactly to the conversations (particularly from Robin Williams). A hospital has a medical staff. You have to learn, how you check a doctor to recognize which one is for you useful and which one you would prefer to put in the trash. Respect them, but avoid them when they are not honest with you. You ask yourself now perhaps, how you can check a doctor? Here I prepared for the Community a recipe:

For the hospital: I would prefer to stay in a hospital on the country-side than in a large city. What about you?

A2if general info about the Bipolar disorder is what you are looking for, here is a link you should check out:

Q. Can the fetus hear through the womb?

My wife wants to play music to our baby and put earphones on her pregnant stomach so he can hear it. Can he really hear the music?
A1Yes, he can hear. Studies show that from the 5th month of pregnancy, nice and calm music can sooth the fetus. You can expose your baby to sounds, music and different tunes throughout your pregnancy.
A2"Yes they can. My oldest boy could hear music and on the songs that he liked, he would kick my stomach to the beat of the music. It was pretty awesome.
A3I would play music for both of my kids when I was pregnant and I do believe that they heard it, first of all they would kick and move around alot when the music was on, and second of all my husband would talk to them and they'd do the same thing . So yes I do think they can hear the music, & voices while in there.

Q. what can be the reasons my hearing capability decline?

i am 30 years old ... and i'm in great shape , don't have chronic health issues , never had . but recently i found my self "missing" parts while my friends are speaking to me , and it is not just that , i feel like my hearing capability decline rapidly for the last few months , what can it be ? and what should i do ?
AThere are many possible reasons for hearing loss. It can be due to a simple ear-wax plug, that can be easy taken out by a Ear-Nose-Throat specialist. It can also be due to a chronic middle ear infection, or gradual hearing damage due to loud noise. Either way you should see a doctor that can refer you to further evaluation tests.
