Cerecell Protocol

Designed to meet the special nutritional needs of children and adults with Autism/Asperger’s/ASD

  • Many children and adults with ASD have poor diets with low amounts of vegetables, fruit, and/or protein thus lacking essential vitamins and minerals essential for human health
  • Most children and adults with ASD also have metabolic problems including mitochondrial dysfunction, oxidative stress, low glutathione, and abnormal neurotransmitters

Based on 20 Years of Research:

Abnormalities found in autism include:

  • Low vitamins (biotin, B5, vit E, carotenoids) and abnormal vit B6
  • Low glutathione
  • High oxidative stress
  • Impaired methylation (low SAM, high uridine)
  • Very low sulfate
  • Low neurotransmitters (norepinephrine, epinephrine, serotonin, acetylcholine) and abnormal dopamine
  • Low plasma amino acids (tryptophan, phenylalanine, tyrosine, isoleucine)
  • Subset with low iodine – should test thyroid function and iodine
  • Low lithium (in whole blood) • High toxic metals: thallium, lead, tin, tungsten

Top Ten Recommendations For Nutritional Supplementation For Children And Adults With Autism/Asperger’s/ASD

  1. Healthy Diet

    • 3-4 servings of healthy vegetables (esp. leafy greens)
    • 1-2 servings of fruit (especially whole fruit)
    • 1-2 servings of protein
    • Minimal sugar, junk food
    • Avoid artificial colors, flavors, preservatives
  2. Trial of gluten-free, casein-free diet

    • 1 month for casein
    • 3 months for gluten
  3. Vitamin/Mineral supplement – Recommended: Cerecell AC1 Enhanced Nutritional Supplementation Powder

  4. Check iron and Vitamin D status

    Iron: Low iron is especially common in individuals with sleep problems, young children, and females who are menstruating. Add iron if needed – but only if needed, as too much iron can also be a problem

    Vitamin D: A blood test can detect if a person has low vitamin D – this is common if people have less than 1 hour/day of direct exposure to the sun. Windows, clothing, and sunscreen lotion block most of the sunlight needed to make vitamin D.

  5. Essential Fatty Acids – especially needed if not eating 1 serving of fatty fish each week

    • Omega-3 (ω-3)
    • Omega-6 (ω-6)
  6. Amino Acids – especially if consuming insufficient protein

  7. Carnitine – especially if not eating 2 or more servings/week of beef or pork

  8. Digestive enzymes – especially if loose stools or gaseousness

  9. Melatonin – if having problems sleeping

  10. Trial of very high dose vitamin B6 with Mg (8 mg B6 per 10 pounds bodyweight, and half that for magnesium; i.e., for a 100 pound person, 800 mg B6 and 400 mg magnesium)

For more information on the treatments listed above, see Summary of Dietary, Nutritional, and Medical Treatments for Autism – based on over 150 published research articles.

The dietary, nutritional, and medical treatments discussed here will not help every individual with autism, but they have helped thousands of children and adults improve, usually slowly and steadily over months and years, but sometimes dramatically.**
