I’m sorry, but my bullsh*t detector starts going off the moment someone claims to have reversed something like Autism. Jenny McCarthy claimed to have healed her kid’s Autism, only it now seems that he was never Autistic to begin with, and was misdiagnosed.

I’m no expert, but as I understand it, there are imaging studies showing fundamental differences in the architecture of the brains of people with Autism. It’s not just a matter of vitamin deficiencies.

As far as beneficial gut bacteria and ADHD goes, I kinda suspect that the Ukrainian diet (which includes such fermented foods as sauerkraut, yogurt and sour cream) is full beneficial gut bacteria, and yet they have a higher rate of ADHD.

Also, I probably get my ADHD from my Dad (ADHD is highly genetic condition, more so than diabetes) and as PA Dutch speaking farm boy he was raised on his mother’s homemade sauerkraut and koch kase, and his Grade 2 teacher still told him he would never amount to anything.
