Interesting story on Autism and Gut Bacteria and Food Additives on ABC last night
My children have been fortunate not to have to take many antibiotics - probably less than one course a year. I generally give them probiotics at the same time, but I do also (and I know this is totally anecdotal) find that their behaviour/social output is more erratic and trying during and for a week or so after the courses.

Who was it that said 'All disease begins the gut'? Was it hippocrates? Anyway, I believe there is probably something to that statement.
In my little family of 4 we had:
DH: moderate to sometimes severe depression. began when he was 8
Me: chronic fatigue syndrome
DD1: coeliac disease
DD2: some signs of sensory processing disorder
All of the above are being brought under control by addressing our gut health. We are all doing almost the same thing and probiotics are a bit part of it. We have gone with probiotic food which we make ourselves.
Of course, DD1's treatment involes abstaining from gluten, but we are all doing that for now too.
Before I started trying to find a way to get well, I didn't know a thing about any of this stuff, but it has really, really worked for us and I urge anyone who is interested to give it a go.
I'm more than happy for anyone to PM me if they want the specifics of what we have done.
I find the whole thing really fascinating.

See I wonder also about antibiotics wrecking the gut. My son of 3.5 has autism and has never had antibiotics even once. Dr gave me some once for him after very short consultation but I felt like I shouldn't so give them to him . He was on the men's the next day. BUT ... I was given antibiotics during his labour. My second son also has never had antibiotics and during his birth I was NOT given antibiotics . My son has improved out of sight after really watching what he eats. There is no way he can handle grapes. , he zones out. Sultanas are like a drug for him , he goes crazy and crys and tantrums and overloads so he does not have this anymore. Pineapple also makes him zone out. We give him fish oil daily and his speech is so much better.
