More research in support of Omega 3’s helping autism – Chia Seeds


I have written posts in the past discussing the benefits of Omega 3‘s helping autism.  An article I received recently discussed the benefits of consuming Chia Seeds for autistic children and helping with brain function.  One of the main issues we have in educating our son is the lack of retention.  He can pick up things here and there but for the most part we are relearning items every day.  I don’t know if this will help as I haven’t tried it with my son but I found this article in relation to that and hemp and thought I would share in case it helps someone else.

Autism cures – especially natural autism cures – are becoming increasingly sought after

as the autism rate in the US and across the world continues to climb. While the exact causes of autism are still being researched (with Big Pharma vaccines already being a confirmed suspect), scientific studies are now bringing to light a new connection between autism and omega 3 fatty acid deficiency. Yasmin Neggers, professor of human nutrition, conducted a matched case control study in Korea, comprised of 29 autistic boys, who ranged in age from 8 to 11 years old (as well as a control group of 29 comparably healthy boys). She measured the children’s total cholesterol, high-density cholesterol, low density lipoprotein, LDL/HDL ratio, total fatty acid concentrations, as well as their omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acid levels.

Remarkably, the study showed that autistic children had much lower omega 3 levels compared to healthy children, especially levels of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Not only that, but the autistic children also had a significantly lower ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 fatty acids than the healthy children. Thus, it was discovered that autistic children exhibited an omega 3 deficiency – which makes sense, because it is exactly these omega 3 fatty acids which build nerve and brain tissues, and affect motor coordination. The professor concluded that omega 3 fatty acid deficiency is now a strong predictor of autism, and she is not the only one – there have numerous other randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled clinical trialswhich came to the same conclusion.

If you’re looking for a natural cure for autism (or Asberger’s or any of the autism spectrum disorders), forget side effect-laden Big Pharma drugs and look instead to Mother Nature and her array of super foods. There are two remarkable and outstanding sources of omega 3 fatty acids that could be the solution. Chia seeds are an exceptionally high source of easily digestible omega 3 fatty acids, as well as being a powerhouse of nutrition, very high in minerals and boasting an almost the complete protein spectrum (19 out of 22 amino acids). Hemp seeds are another phenomenal source of omega 3 fatty acids, as well as containing the ideal ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 (3:1), something which virtually no other food does. Together, taken on a daily basis, super food chia and hemp seeds can counter any omega 3 deficiencies, build healthy nerve and brain tissue, and restore the body’s correct and optimal balance of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids.

Chia and hemp may the best natural way to deal with autism until more research is done. It is too early to say if they could become an autism cure, but if I were a parent of an autistic child, I would certainly give them a go.Super foods have been known to cure many diseases, including cancer, that Western Medicine has falsely stated were incurable.”
