For decades, parents have reported that changing a child's diet can make a profound impact on physical and behavioral disorders. Now, in study after study, science is taking dietary interventions for autism disorders from the realm of anecdotal evidence into the medical mainstream.

Lisa Lewis and Karyn Seroussi, well-known authors and diet experts, spent over a decade compiling information about biomedical interventions for autism. The result is the most comprehensive and user-friendly autism-diet guidebook on the market today.


Now also available on Kindle!

"Dietary interventions are crucial to allowing the GI tract to rest and the body to heal from the effects of chronic inflammation. They are the crux of the biomedical fulcrum in the treatment of autism. For some of my patients, these treatments have resulted in a complete remission of symptoms.

This book succeeds by helping families find their way beyond the confusing technical terminology and shrouded dietary dogma. There is not just one diet to help all children with autism, but there is now one resource help their parents make wise and informed decisions: the Encyclopedia of Dietary Interventions."

In 1995, Karyn Seroussi and Lisa Lewis created an international parent network that has educated thousands about dietary and biomedical interventions for autism spectrum disorders. Thirteen years, three books, countless conferences, and over fifty thousand emails later, they decided to put it all together. The sum of their knowledge is here, in one easy-to-use reference guide.

Book Review:

Kimberly Ann Linderman, The Autism File

"Anyone looking to understand, implement or maintain dietary interventions will find this book incredibly helpful. Packed with tips, hints and strategies, The Encyclopedia of Dietary Interventions makes these diets easy to learn and understand with simple but thorough explanations.

In our search to treat and recover our ASD children, we, as parents, learn that dietary intervention is one of the most successful and important treatments available. The difficulty has always been trying to understand, implement and maintain the diets we choose. All of the necessary information is now available in this one comprehensive guide that is easy to read and understand.

All three of the books previously written by these two fine authors were instrumental in helping me with my son on his road to recovery. I can only imagine how valuable this book will be to someone who is just starting their journey.

The Encyclopedia of Dietary Interventions makes implementing dietary intervention seem like a breeze. If you feel that you do not have the time to do the research, the energy to learn the information or enough information to maintain this intervention, this resource is definitely the one for you."
