Book Synopsis



Your child deserves to get a good night's sleep, be in a good mood, and feel their best, like any other child.?Award-winning author, speaker, mom, and clinician Dr. Janet Lintala details how to help your constipated, irritable, sleep-deprived autistic child.

You've known something was missing from your approach to support your autistic child, and now you have the protocols to help your child sleep better, feel better, behave better, and be ready to connect with the world and learn.

In The Un-Prescription for Autism, Dr. Lintala explains how supporting overlooked conditions?appropriately?can bring transformative results in areas including:

  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Acid reflux
  • Irritability
  • Aggression
  • Night awakenings

From the Back Cover



..".[T]he extraordinary outcomes Dr. Lintala has helped hundreds of patients and their families achieve over the past 10 years is why I am delighted to see her accessible and affordable health support strategies gathered into a book. . . . By reading this book, you can benefit from the lessons learned the hard way by a dedicated autism mom and savvy clinician. . . . Above all, what you'll find here are valuable clinical insights packaged into doable action plans to help your child." -- From the foreword by Elizabeth Mumper, MD, FAAP; President & CEO, Rimland Center for Integrative Medicine; Former Medical Director, Autism Research Institute

"Amidst a sea of confusing opinions, techniques and advice, this book provides a rare combination of science-based research and practical strategies for parents and professionals. . . . [Dr. Janet] possesses a deep understanding of autism that enables her to cut through the misconceptions and deliver common sense, effective strategies for moving these children toward optimal cognitive, behavioral and physical health. . . . I have witnessed transformations in children with autism that professionals and parents alike thought impossible. Following the clear, concise approaches outlined in this book gives children the best shot at obtaining their maximum potential." -- Maureen H. McDonnell, BS, RN, Health Editor, WNC Woman Magazine; Former Medical Coordinator, The Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer; President, Health Education Services, Wellness Workshops, Inc.; Cofounder, Saving Our Kids, Healing Our Planet

As every autism parent knows, a diagnosis is just the beginning. Next step is to make sense of the bewildering array of challenges--including the constipation, sleep deprivation, and irritability shared by so many on the spectrum--and conflicting opinions about what to do. Standard practice is to medicate these symptoms, leaving the children to power through a fog of untreated health conditions.

Blending natural medicine with evidence-based science, The Un-Prescription for Autism is a parent's lifeline. The detailed diagnostic tools, clear explanations, simple protocols, and Online Action Plan support vibrant health on the autism spectrum with safe, natural, over-the-counter supplements. Once the invisible health challenges are tamed, these kids can calm down and break out of their fog, get more out of school and therapy, and become the children you've always known they were meant to be.

Janet Lintala, DC founded and heads Autism Health!, which serves children and adults in 12 states. Her advice integrates the clinical expertise of a nonprescription autism practice with the firsthand experience only an autism parent can deliver.

Martha W. Murphy is an award-winning health writer.
