Why Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders Should Avoid Yeast

A healthy digestive tract contains both yeast and good bacteria. The balance of good bacteria to other microbes plays an important role in regulating inflammation, digestion and immune function.

“Dysbiosis” is an imbalance in the natural flora of the digestive tract. Bacteria in the gut have the potential to overgrow, which creates inflammation, decreases nutrient absorption and, in the case of children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, impairs development.

The natural balance of good flora (or probiotics) in the digestive tract is essential to regulate immune function. A lack of good bacteria or an overgrowth of unhealthy microbes can cause major problems for kids with developmental disorders.

Bacteria live in the intestinal tract, sharing space with yeast. Antibiotic use makes creates the opportunity for yeast overgrowth. Antibiotics kill both good and bad bacteria, but not yeast. Kids that have been on antibiotics many times without re-populating the digestive tract with good bacteria will undoubtedly have issues with yeast overgrowth. Many kids are born with dysbiosis because of C-section birth, IV antibiotics during birth, and/or formula feeding – all of which contribute to yeast overgrowth.

Yeast lives and feeds on sugar. Limiting high sugar (or foods that turn into sugar in the gut) is the first and most important step.

  • Abdominal bloating
  • Change in smell of stool (yeasty, bready, foul or sweet)
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Eczema
  • Funky-smelling scalp (“wet dog” smell)
  • Increase in flatulence
  • Itching (perianal, genital and/or generalized)

Old Fashioned Corn Cakes

Here's a blast from the past...

You will need:
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1¼ cups white cornmeal
  • Vegetable oil alone or add bacon drippings (only use a small amount, enough to fill skillet 1-inch deep -- and it should come from nitrate free bacon)

Add the salt to the boiling water.

Gradually sift in the cornmeal.

Stir to combine.

Cool the mixture in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.

Shape into balls and then flatten to form patties about 2-inches across (coat hands with oil to prevent batter from sticking when shaping the balls).

Heat the vegetable oil or bacon drippings in a skillet.

Fry patties until golden brown (about 5 minutes).

Turn once.

Drain and serve hot.
