Strengthening the gut (intestines) is key to people with Lupus too, I know this webinar is for autism but in my research I am always amazed at how much of what benefits autism treatments (holistic/dietary), benefits Lupus patients as well! See if you can make it to this webinar. Have a nice weekend!

Gut bacteria may contribute to autism
Many autism studies have linked metabolic abnormalities and gastrointestinal problems. Some of the symptoms are gut pain, diarrhea, constipation. Several studies have also hinted at changes in gut bacteria in the feces of children with autism.
A large proportion of autistic children have severe gastrointestinal problems that tend to appear at about the same time as the behavioural symptoms.
To investigate whether signs of these metabolic changes might be detectable in children's urine, Jeremy Nicholson and colleagues at Imperial College London investigated 39 children with autism, 28 of their non-autistic siblings and 34 unrelated children.
"It adds another link to the gut bacterial involvement in the onset of disorder," says Glenn Gibson of the University of Reading, UK, who has previously identified abnormally high levels of clostridium bacteria in children with autism.
One possibility is that the gut bacteria in children with autism are producing toxins that might interfere with brain development. One of the compounds identified in the urine of autistic children was N-methyl-nicotinami de (NMND), which has also been implicated in Parkinson's disease.
Meanwhile, Derrick MacFabe of the University of Western Ontario in London, Canada, and his colleagues have found that short-chain fatty acids produced by clostridium bacteria can induce reversible autism-like behavioural and biochemical changes in rats.
"Nicholson's study did find some biomarkers of gut clostridial populations that we think contribute to autistic symptoms," says MacFabe, who presented his findings at a meeting of the International Society for Autism Research in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in May 2010
Further research is needed to confirm whether bacteria is contributing to autism and if so how.
"If you could identify kids who were at risk much earlier by a chemical test rather than by observing the manifestation of full-blown behaviour, we could get them into therapy much earlier," says Nicholson.
The next step is to confirm the results in a much larger group of age-matched children, as well as following high-risk children from birth in order to identify whether there are markers that precede the development of autistic symptoms.

Cod Liver oil or Fermented Cod Liver Oil
Cod Liver Oil is the number one nutritional supplement derived from the liver of cod fish. Its has high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, and very high levels of vitamin A and vitamin D.
Modern industralisation processing involves heating as one of the process while making cod liver oil.
Sally Fallon President of Weston A Price Foundation talks highly about Fermented Cod Liver Oil.
She said that throughout history, cod liver oil was traditionally processed via fermentation, and not processed with heat. She said that the fishermen would throw the livers into a barrel, add a little sea water, and then leave it to ferment.
Dave Wetzel founder of Green Pasteurs feels why fermented cod liver oil is better for us:
1. Fermented fish liver oils are extracted without heat but rather a natural lacto-fermentation
2. We select exclusively organ tissue as the source of the fermented fish oils (compared to industrial model fish oils) as this is where the nutrients are located. There is much more to fish oil nutrients than EPA and DHA. It is only because of the heavy industrialization of this industry that this field of products has nothing else to discuss but Omega 3, EPA and DHA. These nutrients will occur naturally in all fish oils including the fermented clo/skate liver oil. I think the real story is in the thousands of micro nutrients that are provided in a Fermented fish oil.
3. Fermented liver oils are a deep rich pigment. Pigments are nutrients.
4. The oils have a 8-9mg/g total quinone count. Butter oil is in the 23-25 mg/g range. These figures are very high! The complex of the quinones is completely different between the fish liver oils and the butter oil. Even the quinone complex between the different fish oils is unique (variety is complete nutrition). Quinones consist of nutrients such as vitamin K's, vitamin E's, CoQ enzymes and other known and unknown nutrients/component s.
5. Lacto-fermentation transforms natural vitamin A into different metabolites that are easily absorbed into our bodies (just as in your gut if your gut is working properly). I have found reference to at least 15 different natural forms of Vitamin A that nature provides. Not just the 2-3 that are commonly discussed.
6. There are over 3000 derivatives of vitamin D. Many are natural and others are produced in laboratories. Not much of the vitamin D topic is understood or discussed in mainstream science. Current discussions are just scratching the surface of the topic. Reminder, vitamin D is more accurately categorized as a hormone, not a vitamin.
7. At some point I would like to see the science on the effects of plant hormones and a variety of quinones as they relate to human health. Science is just starting to look at these questions.
8. Efficacy - there is a difference between the processed cod liver oil and the fermented CLO.
9. It takes 6 months to 1 year to make fermented cod liver oil. This is why it is no longer made.
10. Fish oils have historically been fermented for extraction; back in the Roman empire days, Viking era and all the way up to the Mid 1850s. Rendering was introduced during the mid 1850s as a more efficient fish liver processing method. The livers yielded a much higher total oil volume and the process could be accomplished in several hours rather than several months. What they did not understand is the effects that heat had on the nutrients (their science was not ready to address this question) . As with all industrial models, the focus was on: profitability, speed or turns and, marketability (taste).
11. Economical. Substantially more nutrients (including A/D) per ml or teaspoon compared to other brands. Source: Green Pastures
Fermented Foods that Heal
The impact of diet and nutrition on human health is not new. Eating right healing (nutrient-rich) foods in a right way can virtually help is every medical condition.
Nutrition-healing is simply giving yourself the best possible intake of nutrients to allow your body to be as healthy as possible and to work as well as it can.
Good Nutrition is a foundation of Good Health .
