    Book details

There is still a great deal to learn about childhood disorders like autism and ADD, but we do know that for some individuals, changes in diet can make a significant difference. In addition to improved physical symptoms (such as skin rashes or digestive problems), behavioral and learning problems can also improve through dietary intervention. This reference guide includes discussion of the research behind dietary interventions and the principles behind the different types of diets discussed.
The Encyclopedia for Dietary Interventions is an easy-to-use reference guide. Its alphabetized entries include all the important terms, concepts and theories behind every diet currently being used, as well as a thorough discussion of the diets themselves. The length of entries varies, with long entries for complicated concepts and short definitions for simpler terms. Extensive footnotes will lead the interested reader to primary and secondary references.
Physicians who see patients on the autism spectrum will find the book a useful resource, and will want to recommend it to parents. Parents struggling to keep up with the latest theories will find it a life-saving reference.

"Dietary Intervention is one of the most successful medical treatments for individuals with autism disorders, and a comprehensive reference guide has been long overdue. This is a book I will be recommending for all of my patients." -Jeffrey Bradstreet, MD, Director, International Child Development Resource Center. --Individual review"This book is a godsend for those of us who thought we didn't have the time or energy for special diets!" - Katherine Ebbesen Roer, autism advocate and parent --Individual review Karyn Seroussi is the author of Unraveling the Mystery of Autism and PDD, the story of her son's autism recovery through dietary and other biomedical interventions.Lisa Lewis is the author of Special Diets for Special Kids I & II, the foremost books on gluten and casein free diets for children with disabilities. In 1995, Lewis and Seroussi created an international parent network called the Autism Network for Dietary Intervention (ANDI). Through ANDI, the authors have educated thousands about dietary and biomedical interventions. Thirteen years, three books, countless conferences and fifty thousand emails later, they have put the sum of their knowledge here, in The Encyclopedia of Dietary Interventions for the Treatment of Autism and Related Disorders.

  • By PaleoMom on November 29, 2008

    This book is for newbies as well as veterans of dietary intervention for Autism. It is easy to understand, and extremely informative.We've followed a special diet for my son since he was 5, for over 8 years now, and it has been the best intervention to halt his Autism.Thank you for this book, Karyn & Lisa!

    I like this book but it is different from what I expected. It explains you about how to read product labels, vitamins, ingredients to cook, lip balms, food additives ,diets, etc. If you want to learn about recipes buy special diets for special kids by lisa S. Lewis, It is a good book to make you understand that cooking gluten free is easier that you think. If you want to learn about a story of kid going on the gluten free ,casein free diet and bio with success read the book by Karyn Seroussi ,the unraveling the mystery of autism. If you want to learn about biomedical buy the book of Dr Sidney Baker and Jon Pangborn or the one by Kenneth Bock or even the ones by Jenny Mac Carthy.

    My son with autism has been treated with dietary intervention for over 10 years. As an "old timer" in using diets to manage autism, I feel strongly this book is a MUST HAVE for parents of special needs children! I read the book straight through with pen and paper in hand. There is such a wide range of information on several diets that have proven successful in improving the quality of life for so many people! The information is current and complete, with web resources listed for further research if the reader so chooses. However, the volume also serves as a tremendous resource appropriate for families, physicians, libraries, and SCHOOLS to keep on hand to help meet the needs of the growing number of children who are improving using dietary intervention. Karyn Seroussi and Lisa Lewis continue to be "best friends" to the moms and dads around the world navigating special diets..

    This book is just what the autism community needs to get people going with diet intervention. I started four years ago and since then the sea change in perception about diets helping kids with autism has been amazing. This is the perfect book for those who are starting out and are overwhelmed by all the info and various diets out there.Great to give your therapists and doctors as well for a reference, and helpful to have around for a simple but thorough explanation of all of the biomedical and biochemical issues.I also recommend the Special Diets for Special Kids Cookbooks by Lisa Lewis and of course Unraveling the Mysteries of Autism and PDD by Karyn Seroussi's (a memoir about her sons recovery) is a big inspiration.

    Back in 2000 when I heard about this "diet for autism," Karyn Seroussi and Lisa Lewis became my new best friends. Their books guided me through all of the particulars of the diet for my son.Their new book is an amazing resource, and one that I recommend to all of our families looking for nutritional help for their children. This is an invaluable reference tool that will save caregivers hours of research. As usual, the Seroussi/Lewis team makes it easy! Thanks Karyn & Lisa!

    I am a consultant in autism nutrition, this book is the perfect resource for parents and practitioners.There are always so many questions when starting dietary interventions. This book gives you answers in a concise, easy to read and (more importantly) in an easy to understand format.This new book along with Special Diets for Special Kids are invaluable resources. Highly recommended.

    Finally a book that makes special diets easier. There is so much to learn and understand for us parents starting out with dietary interventions for a child with autism. This book hands it to you in "plain speak", shows relevant references, and is packed with hints and tips. Lisa Lewis and Karyn Seroussi have done a wonderful job, thank you!

    Out of the hundreds of dollars I have spent on books, this is the one everyone should have. It's quite possible the best resource you could have. This book is one to keep handy and to keep sanity.
