We're not broken : changing the autism conversation / by Garcia, Eric,

Publication: . 304 pages : 24 cm

It is very US centric with a lot of political discussion especially at the beginning. But he covers off all the key elements and issues of being a growing up autistic. Is respectful of pronouns and how people identify and highlights the LGBTQI+ community who are autistic as well as POL. Would recommend to friends and family members who want an adult autistic POV and to anyone who is diagnosed and wants some reassurance. Also highlights the appalling issues with getting support and accommodations especially in medical situations that many autistic people face, especially those with co-morbidities or other disabilities. Doctors and health professionals should READ this and LISTEN!

The better brain : how nutrition will help you overcome anxiety, depression, ADHD and stress / by Rucklidge, Julia

Publication: . xiii, 354 pages : 23 cm ;

This is a very easy to read book, that demonstrates the benefits of multinutrients formulations (not your over-the-counter multivitaminics), for some people with mental health conditions.

My son has ADHD, the paediatrician prescribed methylphenidate (Rubifen or Ritalin) as the ‘regular’ treatment. When I asked about treating my son’s disorder using multinutrients (thanks to another parent made me aware of Dr Ruckligde’s work), the paediatrician told me that these treatments are still in trials. This book shows there are promising results coming out of the trials conducted by the authors. Results indicate that treating children with multinutrients is a more benign approach than psychiatric medicines.

The book starts by explaining how nutrition is not taught in medical school. There is plenty of interesting stories throughout. The authors even included a chapter with recipes to improve your diet. So far, we have made the stuffed kumara and the leek and peas soup recipes, and both were a hit in the house.

Highly recommend this book.
