Library Journal: Autism Short Takes

Publication Date: Feb. 29, 2012

Herbert (neurology, Harvard Medical Sch.), after years of research and treating children, has developed a new way of seeing autism. Here, she discusses possible causes of autism and strategies for limiting its negative impact and increasing its positive impact on an individual’s development. She looks at the body as a whole system and considers how the environment, food, viruses, and stress can affect the body and brain. She uses many examples from her own practice to illustrate how the changes she recommends have benefitted the behavior and health of her patients.

VERDICT An in-depth, scientific—yet hopeful and positive—look at how the brain and body work together as well as how eliminating toxins and better supporting the immune system through nutrition can have a positive effect on the symptoms of autism.—Lisa M. Jordan
