Epsom salt bath
Epsom salts are a bath product which are very popular amongst sporting people and those who lift a lot of weights.

Even though most people who turn to a gluten-free diet these days are simply jumping on a fad: a gluten-free diet can be beneficial for children who have autism. The reason for this is not completely known and it varies from child to child. Some research suggests that children with autism may also suffer from a leaky gut. Zonulin is a substance found in gluten which has been linked to leaky gut– removing that from your child’s diet might help.
Refined sugar isn’t good for anyone, but for children with autism, it can be even more of an issue. By cutting down the refined sugar in your kid’s diet and instead opting for natural sugars from fruit, you certainly can’t go wrong.
