Autism Treatment - Cod Liver Oil

Let's discuss a little about the benefits of cod liver oil. Cod liver oil has become a very important remedy in the Autism community for many years. Many children show positive benefits with the use of this oil. It has essential fats that help the brain develop like EPA and DHA. This is also rich in natural vitamin A which is very important for eye health as well.

Dr. Megson is a researcher who found many years ago that many children with Autism seem to have problems with visual stimming. This could include side glancing, flicking their fingers in front of their eyes, or other things from a visual standpoint. Many of these children found benefits in as little as a teaspoon or two per day of cod liver oil and had a reduction in visual stims. The natural vitamin A in the oil was benefiting the receptors in the retina. So this oil provided support and influenced the way visual information was being transmitted from the eye to visual cortex in the brain.

This theory has been proven correct many, many times over the years as well. Now cod liver oil is a very common supplement for children with Autism who have many of these visual issues like stimming or side glancing. It can be used as a remedy for some of those visual behaviors and is usually included in many supplement programs. Often times you will see recommendations for a basic multi-vitamin and multi-mineral, a probiotic, maybe zinc and cod liver oil.

You may want to consider cod liver oil as a support for your child to aid in visual issues like stimming and side glancing. The abundant essential fats and vitamin A found in this oil make it a very nice supplement to add and it is generally easy to give to your child. New Beginnings Nutritionals carries a couple of versions of cod liver oil. I believe that you will find cod liver oil to be a very helpful remedy for your child.
