Using the biomedical approach to treat my daughter's ASD
Recent Activity
My 7 year-old daughter was diagnosed with PDD-NOS in 2008 and is non-verbal. For the past 3 years she has dealt with a distended belly and holding in her bowels. She is also very gassy. The only way we can get her to have a bowel movement is if we give her Miralax or an enema. To remedy the bloating we give her black walnut hulls and peppermint tea, which seem to work. But we also notice she sucks in air by breathing with her mouth open. She's doing this more so now since the weather has changed and she caught a cold and has a stuffy nose. She is also on a probiotic and takes magnesium tablets to help her bowels move. She is also on a GF diet and gets very...very minimal dairy. The bloated, distended belly just doesn't seem to want to go away. She wakes up in the morning with a super flat tummy, but by the end of the day it looks like she swallowed a volleyball. Everytime I think I've gotten a handle on the bloating it comes back again. Really need some help with this because she looks so uncomfortable.
