Omega-3 fatty acids are known to be quite effective with protecting and promoting brain function. Recent studies have shown that administering substantial amounts of omega-3 to children with autism helps to significantly reduce their aggressive and hyperactive behaviors.
Last week, we took a look at the two main approaches to treating Autism. The conventional means of treatment often has to deal with treating the symptoms of Autism with medication. Ridding your child of the often damaging and life-altering symptoms seems like it would be a good idea, but when you think about it, what are you treating? Do you have any chance of helping the problem itself get better if you’re just focusing on the side effects?
Some theories on the causes of autism focus on the levels of omega-3 that a person has and the idea that autistic patients have either an omega-3 deficiency or have too much omega-6 in relation to omega-3.
