This joining the listserve on autism, I have been overwhelmed by the number of supplements which some parents are using. I am not prepared to even comment on most. In using SCD for bowel problems, I did not encounter this problem.

I have always maintained that in crisis situations, one should forget the restrictions of the diet and take whatever is necessary.

Therefore, it seems to me that if you have found the supplements to have contributed to marked improvement in your child that you continue with them and do the best that you can with the diet.
