Autistic Children Biting Their Hands

Posted by Anonymous

Hello I have been on the Earth Clinic all day, amazing, my mother has always used ACV and honey as a shot before she goes to bed... maybe I should have picked up that simple action as well... I use the ACV with mothers in it now (cooking) but I will have to use it daily to see if I can also achieve not being so sickly.

But to the real reason I am emailing you... I have 2 autistic children 7 and 9 and they are both just chewing and gnawing on their little hands and we have tried so much stuff but to no avail, I would love to know if you have ever heard of or came across something that we can try, maybe it is the ACV, or an essential oil, I will try anything. Thank you again for such wonderful reading on the posts.

There are many remedies for autistic children, too many to be covered here. But the most important thing is getting the pH down. Autstic responds very differently to alkalization remedy depending on their liver and digestive issues. Take for instance one in Bangkok, this one had very smelly stools and is very choosy about the food he eats, like ketchup, and bloating stomach often if he has food. This one you will try to give him just B6, or B50, for a couple of days to fix his stomach and recovery goes from there. The second case, also autistic, doesn't have the above problems but has mental issues. In that case cilantro and ascorbic acid, because he has very alkaline urine, his urine pH is about 8. Then on the other hand a third case, had the opposite, acidic urine, suffers temper tantrums and uncontrollable emotions. That I used amino acid which are inhibitory amino acid, GABA, taurine, and others, and alkalization such as sodium citrate and potassium citrate, and cilantro. Then there is a child who displays biting, as in your case, it usually but not always, a zinc deficiency. Unfortunately I have seem mothers who couldn't get the zinc levels up even with zinc supplements. In that case it was the additives in the supplements that block their absorption, such as calcium phosphate, calcium triphosphate, magnesium stearate, etc. The simplest is to buy chemical suppliers pure zinc acetate supplements. Also chldren with autistic responds differently to apple cider vinegar. They sometimes responds to Apple cider vinegar with some baking soda but sometimes they respond to just apple cider vinegar alone, depending on their pH urine status. So you are going have to get pH paper and measure their urine.
