Autistic Children and Olive Leaf

Does olive leaves /olive leaf extract help treat autistic children (eliminate mercury from their brains, destroy Candida in their intestines, ...) and thank you enormously.

Olive leaf is a great weapon to have in your arsenal for getting rid of Candida overgrowth in the intestines, but it is not a complete solution on its own, especially in severe cases.

We have found that olive leaf + good quality probiotics (cultured vegetables even more so) can greatly help to correct the gut, but often autistic children simply will not eat certain foods needed to bring about a full recovery in this area.

Bone broth made from the bones of organic chicken or beef (this report from a mother of a severely autistic child) is the thing that finally fixed his very dysfunctional gut, I was told when I asked this question. It was also well liked.

Olive leaf may well benefit the brain, as some of the antioxidant components can cross the blood/brain barrier, but I do not know if it will help eliminate mercury from the brain at all.

Thank you for the answer and the information.

True, autistic children are very selective in their choice of food, but sometimes you can convince them saying :" this is medecine" when the targeted food is just a small quantity: this is the case with my son.

With autistic kids nothing can be predicted in this area of food.
