One of the biggest challenges that parents of children with autism face is the overwhelming number of untested, unproven autism therapies that are promoted on an ongoing basis. Trying these non-science-based therapies aren’t just potentially a waste of time and money for families. They can also put children with autism at risk for dangerous side effects.
Many unproven autism therapies involve dietary changes, chemicals, minerals, and vitamins that can cause serious complications when not used appropriately. Some untested treatments can lead to serious health issues like mercury poisoning, intestinal upset, headaches, and vitamin overdose toxicity. For your child, unproven autism therapies will not provide results and could actually exacerbate symptoms in some cases.
