for Autism (and ADHD)

Nutrition and Diet Guide for Healing Children

Nourishing Hope for Autism is authored by Julie Matthews, a Certified Nutrition Consultant with 15 years’ clinical experience and research into autism nutrition and special diets. Nourishing Hope includes over 200 scientific references that explain the underlying factors in autism, WHY and HOW dietary choices matter, and dozens of client examples and direct experience.

No other clinician/researcher/author has investigated the BIG PICTURE of Food/Nutrition and how specific Diet CHOICES influence childhood disorders (ADHD, Autism, and more!). No other book presents an evidence-based approach to USING this information in step-by-step manner for each child.

Nourishing Hope has helped parents and clinicians around the world to make BEST USE of dietary choices, while advancing global awareness that children CAN improve, even fully recover from autism, ADHD, and beyond.

Nourishing Hope is the only text that definitively explains the science behind dietary intervention and contains a step-by-step implementation guide – in an easy to read format.

  • Understand that autism and ADHD are “whole-body” disorders–that body, brain, and behavior are connected
  • Learn how diet changes can dramatically help many children with autism.
  • Know which food omissions and additions are most imperative.
  • Discover the most nutrient dense foods to ensure proper nutrition for your child, even picky eaters.
  • Become empowered to get started or make further progress with ANY special diet.
