    Hi Dr Nemcheck,
    I started my Son 6.6yr old (mild asd , severe speech delay , sensory) on the approved brand doses from sep2018 till Jan 2019 .i have not seen any improvement or awareness .
    I switched Brand’s from now inulin to jetsu inulin after many people have found improvement in it .
    Olive oil from California to Cobram estate (Australians in the nemcheck are using cobram ,as California evoo is not available).
    Here is my problem
    Awareness has increased but he is laughing all the time ,constiapation also comes and goes .
    It is very difficult to control him in bus or mrt .
    Pls tell me what I should do .(desperate and anxious mom)

      I disagree that Jetsu is better, I find quite the opposite.

      You say you are not seeing any improvements yet his awareness has increased. I think you might be hoping for too much too soon.

      If kids seem overly stimulated with inulin, they might be getting too much.

      I suggest following my instructions in the book more closely that they group think on the internet.

    Hello Dr. Nemechek, I purchased your book and after reading it, I felt hopeful for the first time in a long while. My 17 year old son has struggled with sensory processing, stemming, ocd and Tourette’s for most of his life. We have tried homeopathic medicine, bio-med and elemination diets with minimal gains. I made an appointment with my functional medicine Dr. to discuss the use of Rifaximin with my 17 year old. (We have been on the insulin, fish oil and olive oil for about a month with little change.) I brought your book to the appointment and we discussed SIBO. My Dr. sent us home with a list of 6 different pre-biotic fibers to use and recipes for kimchi and sauerkraut. (NOT practical for a 17 year old with food aversions) . He said he would prescribe Rifaximin if I could show him the research you used in your book to prove that it does not affect the bacteria of the small intestine. I sent him the resources you cited in your book and I have not heard back from him. I am so disccouraged. Why is this protocol so hard for other doctors to grasp?

      That is the million dollar question.

      It’s well understood you cannot rebuild the gut bacteria by eating fermented foods.

      Maybe you ask a different doctor.

    Hi Dr. Nemechek.
    Hello from Armenia! Sorry for poor English, please.My son is 3 year old, non verbal. We started protocol drom 8 december. I started from Evo, after 10 days we started inulin (now). After 1 week with inulin I saw many gains every day. He started understand me better, go toilet amd other gains. I was happy . But from month he started hit himself very strong. I think ot from inulin. I stopped inulin and we continue only with evo and fish oil. But without inulin I dont see gains. And he also countinoues hitting himself very angry.
    Do I wrong anything with inulin. Should I continue inulin. Please tell me what I can do to see gains and to win agression. And we also waiting with love your book in Armenian.

    Dear Doctor,

    First of all thanks for the protocol. It’s really helping my son (he’s 5 years old and is 8 months into the protocol).
    My question is that I’m planning for a second child and I’m going to start the protocol for myself (I watched your video about healthy protocol babies). However, I’ve been suffering from vaginal yeast issues for the past two year despite of different medications tried. The doctor assures that this will not affect pregnancy. But I want to know will following the protocol be good enough to over ride any effects the yeast issue will have on my pregnancy.

    Looking forward to your reply!

      I agree with your other doctors, vaginal yeast issues will not affect your pregnancy nor your child.

    We are in week 18 of the protocol for my 9 year old son. ADHD, asd level 1, anxiety. I feel we may be on track, getting some watching hair grow gains.

    Hi Dr Nemechek, we have been following the protocol since June 2018 and my daughter is 4 and nonverbal, she is improving in her receptive language. Our biggest struggle besides language communication is she is continuing to have sensory seeking behaviors, mouthing everything even papers now and self-stimulating to the point where she can’t focus on anything else. She’s in ABA, OT and speech. Wondering if there’s anything else we can do to reduce her sensory seeking behaviors? Thank you for everything you do for our kids, we are so grateful.

    Dear Dr. Nemechek,
    My symptoms from “hunger attack” as sweeting, fatigue on arms and legs, dizzy, nausea persist. TUMs helps, so your comment of “a build up of acid in the stomach because your autonomic nervous system is not emptying the stomach“ is so making sense.
    My order of your book, inulin and DHA fish oil from NOW just arrived. My questions are,
    1. I am adult, should I take the dose as indicated on the label of the bottle? Inulin one teaspoon with food one time/day, one fish oil/day with food at the beginning?
    2. I am taking Zantac twice/day although my endoscopy didn’t indicate anything wrong with my stomach other than minor irritation. 3 TUMS across a day. Should I continue taking Zantac and TUMs?
    Thank you so much for your instructions.

      The doses I list in the book for adults with autism were actually written for adults without autism.

  9. Graciete Silva 1 week ago

    Dr. Nemecheck, thank you for everything you are doing for children with autism. We’ve been doing the protocol for a year. My grandson, 4 and a half years old, has shown improvement. The biggest problem is that it eats almost nothing. We are concerned. She has very low iron values ​​and the pediatrician told us to take a few drops of iron. Another relevant subject is that I would like you to tell me if we can wipe it out, because we have a pet at home and
    the veterinarian recommends that we all be dewormed at home, but I do not know if I can do it. What you tell me about it? Immensely grateful for the work they share. Graciete from Portugal.

    Hello sir.. For a 5yr old kid is it fine to do a low carb diet in parallel with protocol ? Or reducing carbs will be effecting their growth?
    And will doing a combination of low carb and protocol actually misguide the awakening phase??

    • Author
      Patrick Nemechek, D.O. 1 week ago

      Low carb can actually worsen hyperactivity and anxiety. It is not necessary for success with the protocol.

    Hey Dr. Nemechek!
    Have you ever heard about scalp pain? right under hair layer lots of pain with touch also without touching it. It feels like my hair hurts and its unbearable. Very weird comes and goes once in while. I take 800 mg of motrin and goes away and doesn’t return for a month or so .(I’m 5’5″ 130 lb 42 years old . If I don’t take anything wont go away. No one has a clue why it happens. I’m hoping is autonomic nervous system dysfunction and with your protocol will resolve. I’ m only 1 month on full protocol approved doses without any problem at all. I cooked and drank olive oil my whole life. I’m Mediterranean.

    You deserve a Nobel price for you cleaver protocol which is changing lives all over the world. You are amazing. I have read countless of books on Autism but none made sense the way yours did.
    God bless you with a very long healthy happy abundant life.

      Scalp pain, especially if only present when in the upright position (sitting, standing or walking) can easily be due to lack of blood pressure into the muscle causing pain. Also could be from low blood pressure and oxygen delivery to the nerves leaving the neck, a condition called neuronal ischemia.

      If then pain is both when supine (laying flat) and upright, then I would look for more permanent neurological damage to that area.

  12. Vigya Sharma 2 weeks ago

    Hello Dr Nemechek.
    My 5 yr old has hit the awakening after being on protocol for 6 months(we have been going really slow with inulin because she was getting very emotional). Awakening was really really hard. She cried for tummy ouchy and had severe aggression. Reducing the dose didn’t help and we had to stop inulin completely 2 weeks ago. She is still having full blown aggressive burst outs every night and day and has left her non functional. She is not able to go to school nor can attend her therapies. She continues to cry for stomach ache all day and night. We saw our pediatrician and he is having an x-ray done to rule out anything else but he believes since we are making changes in her gut, it is causing cramps/uneasiness in her tummy and hence the stomach ache. The aggression this week has been on its height. I know we have to wait for bacteria overgrowth and proponic acid levels to come up again before she will calm down completely.
    1. I am just not sure how long that will take?
    2. What could cause stomach ache?
    3. Anything I can do in meanwhile to calm her stomach ache down?
    4.Is it possible that inulin has acted as rifaximin in her case and caused all bad bacteria to die which is why it is taking time for overgrowth?
    I stopped the oils for 4 days to see if that has any role to play but as expected it did nothing and hence I am adding them back.
    I will appreciate any advice you can provide on how to settle her down. We are coming over to see you in August. I am not sure how to get through this situation and then how to continue the protocol until we see you.
    I should also mention that she has made some great gains in last 6 months. And as expected we are loosing them gradually since stopping the inulin. I truly believe in this protocol but stuck right now on how to calm her down. Thank you so much for inventing this protocol which is helping so many kids to heal and recover.
    Appreciate any advice you can provide.

      If she is still having pain after stopping the inulin and your physician has not found any other signs of concern, you may want to discuss the optiion of treating with rifaximin with your managing physician.

    Dear Dr Nemecheck
    I have now ordered and received the Inulin powder from Nows.
    I was a bit surprised by the text on the Inulin box. It says that “Inulin ….is a soluble prebiotic fiber that is resistant to digestion and reaches the large intestine essentially intact”. it also talks about nourishing the cell lining of the colon. With your metaphore of the fish and birds, I had understood that only the “birds” of the small intestine were fed, and this was moving the “fish” back to the colon.
    Are both the “birds”(a.k.a lactobacillus?) and “fish”(bifidum?) nourished as well as the walls of small and large intestine, and, in addition , the birds are empowered by inulin to move the “fish” back into the large intestine ?
    Many thanks in advance for your help.
    Kind regards

      If you feed someone enough inulin it will get to the colon intact.

      There point is it is not digested into absorbable sugars.

    Hello Dr Nemechek, we have been following the protocol for a year and our child has had a good recovery in language and comprehension.
    Already starting to fulfill orders.
    We are grateful for everything.
    Our child has a very reduced diet for being very selective, takes enough rice milk with hazelnut, bread, apple, banana, ham, cheese,
    chicken in small amounts.
    At first I ate meat and soup but I refused them.
    We are worried our child will not feed well.
    What can we do?
    Thank you very much for everything.

      In almost every case where the child is a “picky eater”, it eventually resolves on its own and they slowly become willing to eat a broader variety of foods.

      It sounds like the foods he is presently eating is enough to provide a wide range on nutrients. Be patient, it will come.

    Hi! Are the Nemechek protocol for autonomic dysfunction and the program for autism and developmental disorders the same thing? I’m about to start the NP for Autism & DD with my son, but I took the checklist quiz for autonomic dysfunction in the appendix of the book and ticked off 13 symptoms and am interested in starting for myself but didn’t see a separate book for the NP for Autonomic dysfunction 🙂
    Thank you!

    Hi Doctor,

    My Son is 4 year 10 months old. He is in protocol for past 6 months. In end of Nov, due severe dry cough, Pediatrician prescribed nebulizer and antibiotic azithromycin for 4 days which we couldn’t avoid. So, though he is in Nemechek protocol for 6 months, but had to take antibiotic at 4th month, and back in protocol for past 2 months.
    BTW, For past 2 months, his sleep pattern has changed, almost 60% percent of time he is not continuously sleeping for 7 hours. He wakes up in midnight or early morning, plays for 2 to 4 fours, and then goes back to sleep. He does have a habit of napping afternoon around 4 PM for 1 to 1.5 hours after his school, and there is no change in the napping habit, but nighttime sleep has changed. Additionally, he is also scratching his legs often, and sometimes his butt (we checked for strep, and it came negative). As you mentioned in the book, I thought of ignoring it as “regular misconceptions of yeast infection” or he is going through “awakening period”, but his sleep issue is continuing more than 2 months. His pediatrician thinks he may have cysts or pinworm, and asked us to give Reese Pinworm medicine, and Magnesium Theronate Neuromag in night (for good sleep). Pediatrician does aware of Nemecheck protocol, and she is also suggesting to add Leucovorin 5mg a day to help in speech. Is it okay to give Pinworm medicine, does it impact the environment what have been created for past 6 months (or 2 months) by this protocol? Is it okay to give supplements like Magnesium and Leucovorin along with this protocol, could you please let us known.
    I do have appointment with you during end of May, but I thought it will be help if I get your suggestions before that. Thanks.

    Hi Dr. Nemechek,

    I have read your book and will be rereading it while I wait for the Inulin and Fish Oil Supplements I ordered to arrive. I will be using your protocol with myself and my two children. We are not diagnosed with ASD but between the three of us have many of the other issues you talk about in the book including ADHD symptoms, chronic constipation, Anxiety, dizzyness/lightheadedness and more. I was just wondering would we stop any of the supplement parts (fish oil, inulin, EVOO doses) of it after all of the symptoms/problems seem to be gone or should we expect to continue the protocol indefinitely even when all symptoms seem to be gone to keep them from returning? Because I am breastfeeding my youngest currently I hope the inulin for now will be enough for me.

    Thank you!

      Often CBI symptoms (anxiety, hyperactivity, increased hunger) return ofter discontinuing the protocol. Developmental gains (sensory, apraxia, motor) seem to be less vulnerable to regression after stopping the protocol.

  19. Matt 3 weeks ago

    Hello Dr. Nemechek, we have bought and read your book about the NP in December last year. Now we have started our 3 yr old son with ASD diagnosis on your protocol since December 27, 2018, starting with 1/4 teaspoon of Inulin (NOW) and 1 teaspoon of Nordic naturals fish oil, we also use the recommended CA extra virgin olive oil for cooking. Apart from that our son has a regular diet with some chicken stock and stock based veggie and meat soup every other day (we followed the gaps diet before). As we witnessed some improvements in speech, since January 14th we increased dose to 2 x 1/4 teaspoon of Inulin, unchanged dose of fish oil. While we’re very happy with his improvements in speech and also interest in things, we are a Little concerned about his stool, which is regular, once per day, but rather “creamy” consistancy, not what I would consider regular. Is this something to be concerned about, or is it a common effect from being on the NP? Will his stool eventually normalize? Do you recommend further increasing or decreasing the Inulin and/or fish oil dose?

    Thanks a lot in advance, we’re really greatful for all your work and help!!

    • Author

      Don’t worry about the stool. If it is too loose, consider cutting back on the EVOO dose or splitting the oils up into separate doses if taking them together.

  22. Mohsin Rasool 4 weeks ago

    Hi,
    This is Mohsin from Pakistan, We have started NP for our 8yo (55lb) kid, Mustafa, who is currently non-verbal. We started NP in mid-November 2018 with high hopes. We started with 1/2 tsp NOW Inulin, 1tbsp EVOO (the best I could get in my town) and 1/4 tsp of Fish Oil. Unfortunately, just after a month on NP, kid experienced seizure (stiffed muscles, uncontrollable jerking, almost unconscious, bubbles in mouth) spans till 10 minutes. We assumed that it might be low sugar level because he did not ate for more than 14 hours that day. But, 4 days ago (2 months on NP), kid experienced second seizure that lasted for more than 15 minutes. We are not following any other protocol or medication which make me sure that its Inulin. We started Fish Oil in Mar 2018 and, in my opinion, Olive Oil is not something that can cause it. We noticed that, during NP, his poop starting to have some small white living worms. I do not know what it is and how it is related

    History.
    Mustafa had jaundice, fever and seizures right after the birth, most probably, because of inhaling meconium. He remained in hospital for first 10 days. Doctors prescribed Phenobarbitone to keep fits controlled on discharge. For first 4 years, he has been on different medicines of Epilepsy (which was never detected on EEG though). He had Absence seizures at that time that lasts only 1-7 secs and can only be noticed through his blinking eyes and being non-responsive. We followed Neurophysicians, Neurosurgeons and Child Specialists in initial days to keep track of the brain development. He was diagnosed as CP child because his brain could not grow in full due to oxygen deprivation.

    He is being trained by Physiotherapists, Occupational therapists, Speech therapists etc. As far as the medical treatments are concerned, we tried Hyperberic Oxygen, Methyl B12, Glutatheion IV, Probiotics, Antioxidants in last 3-4 years. These treatments improved his aggression, learning, cognition, motor skills, improved eye contact, better eating behavior. But, still he is non verbal, non-understanding, head banging, biting, non-interactive, non-social.

    My few questions are.
    1) I understand we are not giving recommended brand because, this is the best we can do here in Pakistan. Can this be the cause?
    2) Can Inulin cause seizures? If not, then what you think possibly caused it?
    3) Dose NP helps in a situation where brain is under-developed due to Oxygen deprivation?
    4) Any suggestion/advice that can help us in anyway to improve our kid?

    Thank you very much for your precious time. We really appreciate if you can help us out in this regard.

    Best Regards

      2. Not that anyone has ever reported.
      3. Yes
      4. Stick with the protocol, avoid unnecessary supplements and probiotics and most of all be patient because the nervous recovers as fast as hair grows.

    Hi, Dear Dr. Nemechek,
    My name is Hui. I have been suffering from “chronic hunger” with “low blood sugar” similar symptoms. I have been through numerous checking and rule out low sugar, diabetes, heart, brain, thyroid, stomach and other digestive system issues. I only take anti acid pill but my symptoms similar to “low blood sugar” as sweeting, fatigue on arms and legs, dizzy, nausea and palpitation still show from time to time, which prevents me from engaging daily routines. My doctors so far couldn’t figure out the cause, so no treatment.
    I checked on line and there have suggestions of autonomic dysfunction. Would you please have some suggestions?

    • Author
      Patrick Nemechek, D.O. 1 month ago

      You have classic symptoms of autonomic dysfunction.

      Unfortunately for you, the great success of our protocol with children with autism is delaying my publication of our adult book on autonomic dysfunction.

      If you were to read this book you will understand the mechanisms involved with your development of autonomic dysfunction (a process called cumulative brain injury). The adult protocol I prescribe for adults with autism was originally developed for adults with autonomic dysfunction (and without autism).

      Read the book and following the instructions for adults will help you significantly recover. A copy can be purchased at https://autonomicrecovery.shop

    Hi Dr Nemechek
    My almost 3yr old son is on your protocol 6weeks his eye contact is most definitely improving along with a general interest in things but my worry is the few little words he had he seems to have lost he still understands the word but can no longer pronounce it. It’s like he tries but can’t yet I’d say his overall self seems more tuned in . He is trying to say new words however like cheese and fish but it just concerned me that it seems like he has lost the words he had. He definitely has poor expression anyhow but none the less when be seen colours he would always say purple v clear and yellow now he just goes ba it’s v strange. Thank you in advance

      Don’t worry, things will come together for him.

      He is probably feeling a bit more anxious or stimulated now the propionic acid has dissipated.

      You’ve started him down the path of recovery. You’re going to have a great 2019.

    Hello Dr. Nemechek,
    I have read your book several times and have watch all your YouTube videos, but I can’t seem to find an answer to my question. Could fish oil or olive oil cause aggression and violent behaviors? I understand that the awaking period could cause this due to a drop in acid. We started our 8 year old daughter (neurotypical with anxiety and sensory issues) on the protocol 4 months ago. We began the protocol with inulin alone for a few weeks and everything was fine. After we began adding oils she became aggressive and violent, not typical for her. We then did a modified protocol (1/16 tsp.) to see if it helped. She continued to become more aggressive and violent on a daily basis. We totally stopped the inulin a month ago and her aggression still continues to rise. We are desperate to help her at this point.

    • Author
      Patrick Nemechek, D.O. 2 months ago

      Any food substance can worse behaviors if the gut bacteria are not yet fully suppressed.

      Push the inulin up to full dose and be certain just to use the NOW brand. After that, then try adding the fish oil, etc b ut slowly over a month.

      I have several recent cases lately of problems because of using another brand discussed in the group.

    Thank you helping this be accessible to all. Your videos and book is so appreciated. My 12 year old son diagnosed with Asd was also diagnosed by a geneticist with hereditary Fructose intolerance at the age of 9 … a rare genetic disorder in which he can’t tolerate Fructose , sucrose or sorbitol. After diagnosis Removal of higher Fructose vegetables helped his serum liver levels return to normal. Does chicory root inulin ( which he has been taking for about 3 months on the NP – worked up to current 3/4 tsp. ) fall under one of these sugars and would that be reason not to use inulin ?

    Regards- Nawshad

      The EVOO you use will protect your child from the small amounts of omega-6 fatty acids that leak into their diet from other foods.

    Dear Dr. Nemecheck, thank you for the book, videos and blog. We are learning a lot from them. I was wondering if you might have some thoughts on the use of hopantenic acid for the treatment of some brain conditions, including autism, which apparently is practiced in Russia and some former Soviet republics. Would that be in line with/ complement your protocol? Would you discourage it? Or perhaps there isn’t enough evidence for or against it? Thank you!

      Hopantenic acid is a variant of GABA and simply acts as a stimulant. These agents at times can cause very exaggerated reactions in children and I think are best avoided when using my protocol.

    Hello Dr. N. In my case my son who is 3 years old had a chromosone test which shows he has duchenne muscular dystrophy, I’ve been on protocol since September 2018. Previously he is diagnosed with ASD. Will your protocol help him also with the DMD? I won’t lose hope and continue protocol. Thanks for your time.

      I am uncertain as I am unaware of anyone using the protocol on a child with DMD.

      Please let me know about your experience after he has been on the protocol for a few months.

    Hello, Dr. Nemechek. I just heard about your protocol and am excited to try it with my family to help with food intolerances, hypothyroidism, brain fog, etc. My question is in regard to the oils you recommend. We have been avoiding cooking with omega 6 oils for some time. We like to use avocado oil, though, and you didn’t mention that kind in your book. Any thoughts on whether we can continue cooking with it? Thank you for your time.

      I recommend using extra virgin olive oil instead because of it’s proven health benefits. Avocado does not have the same proven benefit.

    Hi Dr Nemechek. It was wonderful meeting you. I forgot to ask. How long before the VNS starts showing changes in. Someone under 30. Is it something g that works right away with balancing the autonomic system or does it happen over time? Does it take longer for people over 30?

    Thank you again

      The protocol whether or not the VNS is used results in a slow but steady level of improvement with changes noted on a monthly basis. This is why we use the phrase, “your nervous system recovers as fast as your hair grows”.

    I would really like to know what is considered “too”high of a dose. I have had my 4 yo on all recommended doses and brands since aug 25, 2018. He started on 1/4 tsp inulin with no awakening so we went to 1/2tsp after 2 weeks and after seeing awakening and then no further gain for 2 months we decided to go to 5/8 tsp of inulin and he has always been on 1/4 tsp of FO recommended brand which was 0.2 ml over recommended dose. And then I was just cooking with evoo until many people were saying evoo needed to balance with the amount of omega 6 that was taken in our processed foods. So we started about October giving him 1/2 tablespoon of evoo and gradually increased to 1 tbsp daily. We have seen some amazing gains in his understanding and verbal ability to communicate and resipical play. No complications or any health concerns. Are these doses too high? He is 4 and will be 5 June 3, 2019.
