2 doctors agree
In brief: Yes.
Yes. I am not a dan specialist and through the years have found that there are many nontraditional ways to improve the symptoms of add and autism.
I have had tremendous success. Basic things like altering diet, homeopathy, and chinese medicine have had a hugely positive impact on my patients. Some of these ideas are found in my book common sense pediatrics.

Unfortunately none of these treatments have been shown to be efficacious in evidence peer reviewed

Journal articles. Lots of anecdotes don't = data.

I have spent the last 20 years successfully treating adhd & autism naturally.
More success with adhd, but some on the autism spectrum have recovered.

Most people disagree with this untrained osteopath's ideas. They are more commercial than medical. See <http://fumento.com/adhd/adhdblock.html>
