    So.. as an update.. Starting week 6 of the ketogenic diet, 90% water, very very little to no carb thing.. no cheating..

    Things are working.. magically working.. slow process, but, we are seeing results!

    My question to you is.. we are seeing improvements with the language. The social skills and repetitive behaviors are coming along too, but, not as much as the noticeable change in language. Do you believe that Sensory Processing Disorders are in the same boat as Autism as far as what part of the brain SPD effects? and is the diet going to help with it too (over time)? or is this something that we are going to have to still work with an OT for?

    ex. cutting finger/toe nails.. putting bare feet on sand, grass, in water, or on concrete.. touching different textures (especially messy things like glue or playdoh).. showering is interesting because it seems like it literally is painful for them.

    CT is not a problem.. they will only take cold baths.. lol.. they won't even touch warm or hot water...

    Thanks for your time.. :)

    Yes I do believe they are deeply related. Research on the embryology of the sensorimotor cortex tends to show that the topographical specialization of the brain depends not only on the quality of the stimuli analyzed and gathered up by the sensory mechanisms, but also on the structural adaptations which the corresponding cerebral areas undergo; this implies the environment during this embryology, the shear timing of what is present in the environment is critical. For the brain cortex we are finding out the magnetic polarity and vitamin A status. Recent studies show distinct brain structures involved in somatosensory processing are already prenatally determined by the parents epigenetics. The genome is the hardware but the epigenome is the software that allows the computer to run. This implies that a pre- or perinatally acquired (epigenetic or congenital) brain damage of such structures results in a persistent somatosensory deficit. This means that the sensory cortex organizes early in embryology and it does not have the synaptic reorganization ability of other parts of the cortex. This means to reverse a somatosensory disease we need to act before egg meets sperm. Acting any later, the research says we are too late. This is why I always say you are no good for anyone else until you are good enough for yourself. There is a deep neurologic reason I believe it and your great questions is uncovering why I say what I say.
