Due to antiobiotics, vaccines, and to a lesser extent, sugal, alcohol, yeast, etc, probiotics are killed, and the fungus grows out of check, causing thousands
of different problems depending on what types of fungus have grown in what level. These naturopaths estimate 70% of people suffer from this type of overgrowth to some degree. They also claim autism is caused due to it, and prescribe a tough diet + lots of fungus killers to counter it. Unfortunately, most medical practitioners discourage it and term it as rubbish due to lack of proof. Most doctors recognise fungus overgrowth only in the form of vaginal and oral overgrowth. A few autistic children have gone through this diet, and allegedly
, most of their non-physical symptoms, such as inability to socialise have disappeared or nearly so, although the physical symptoms (motor clumsiness, sensitivity to loud noises, stimming, etc) remain.
The Autistic community itself is divided into pro-cure and no-cure movements, the latter claiming that Autism is a condition and not caused due to external factors. I'm not sure where I stand, except that I'm glad I have it. Allah (SWT) only knows what haraam things I could have been capable of if I functioned normally...
Anyway, Asperger syndrome, in my opinion, is a good thing. ADHD is not.
