Hello Dr N. My daughter is amazingly recovered thanks to you and God I found your protocol. I’m in the fb group with Kelsey and someone posted a question to you about missed doses of the protocol. You said we should basically double up. Is it possible to clarify that? Please. Should we make up missed dose of FO and EVOO next day? What happens if they miss more than a day? Thanks so much for the clarification on this. 🙂

Hi Dr. Nemechek, my son has been on the protocol for a year and has made great gains, but he has also put on quite a bit of weight. He went from too skinny to chubby in a year-time and keeps gaining weight. Is this a side effect you see often on kids on the protocol? When will it normalize? He’s 8 and getting a tbsp of olive oil daily and 3 x Now DHA 500.
Thank you!

Hi Dr Nemechek
I finished my first course of Rifaximin 6.5 weeks ago. (adult female, with chronic fatigue) Since finishing I have had constant headaches. I am also now wondering if I need another round as I have a yeast infection situation and my tummy is feeling bit uncomfortable after eating again. however – due to the constant headaches, which have been tough, I am reluctant to take more. Could you please advise? Thank you so much

My 11yo son has been on oils for several months. Just finished a round of rifaximin per protocol ten days ago. He is urinating constantly. His urine shows an elevated specific gravity. He’s not dehydrated as he’s always been great about drinking water throughout the day. I’m assuming this is protocol-related. Thoughts?

Hi Dr. Nemechek, My son is about to be 4years old. And has Autism, we have been in your protocol for 3+months. He is currently on 1/2 teaspoon on Inulin (NOW), 600mlgrs of fish oil (Nordic) and I cook with California Olive oil. He has a pretty clean, gluten, casein free diet and no process sugar. I see major improvement in speech, less stimming but he is more hyperactive than usual and the eye contact is the same. His awareness is on point but still not as interactive with other kids. Should I keep everything as it is or you… Read more »

Hi,

Very inspired by all this.I care for 3 girls/women with adhd & asd and also have 4 family members with either or both. So I’m going to *try* evangelizing this to them all. One female (52 yo) had a gastric bypass (the full one) about 10 years ago…so have you any idea what doses she should take? She’s kinda hostile to doctors right now so I can’t get her to ask her gastro about absorption at this stage- but i know fat absorption is 50% (maybe??)

Thanks for your hard work for everyone,it’s all very hopeful.

I have read the book and am beginning the protocol for my almost 4 year old son who has autism and ADHD. He is considered nonverbal and lacks significantly in his communication/socialization. However, I have already implemented (without realizing it) some of the protocol and have seen big gains. For example, he now uses words, is imitating much more, and is more aware of what’s going on around him. My son has been taking the Barlean’s adult fish oil dosage (EPA 900mg, DHA 590 mg, and other omega-3 of 370mg). He also has been taking the NOW probiotic-10 plus inulin… Read more »

Hello Dr. Nemechek, I need your advice. We are just starting your protocol with my 6 yo son, so I haven’t noticed any difference yet. Our dentist recommended us to put him under general anesthesia to fix his teeth. But after reading in your book that surgery can work as a trigger I’m afraid to do so. What are our risks? Should we try laughing gas or something like that and in office visits instead of general anesthesia or do you think it is safe and won’t affect his brain activity? I basically just don’t want things to get worse… Read more »

Dear Dr Nemecheck, thank you for your helping our children with your protocol. My question is about dosages. My son (3.9 years) has been on the Protocol since Oct 2018. He experienced awakening at 1/4 tsp Inulin, 1ml NNUO and EVOO. After awakening he was not anxious and lots of other gains for 2 months. He then became ill and regressed and for three months there were no further gains. I then by mistake, increased Inulin, instead of FO. He now takes 1/4 + 1/8. His stimming disappeared on the new dose of inulin. I then re-read your book and… Read more »

Dear Dr. N,

My son is on NP for 6 months now and there are great gains in terms of cognition and awareness. His motor planning is also better after I have started NP. But his teeth grinding during sleep has gone worse to the extent that he gets cracks in his teeth. Can I give him deworming medicine such as albendazole while he is on NP?

Thanks in advance,

Hello Dr Nemechek- we read your book and ordered NOW inulin and dha for our 18 year old daughter with HF Autism, Asperger, Adhd, CPTSD, major depression, chronic generalized and social anxiety, sensory issues, former eating issues because of constant abdominal pain which lead to malnutrition, occasional PNES, leaky gut, dissociation, hallucinations, sleep issues, etc. , who had to withdraw from high school in Jan as she can hardly function and is always ill. I’m wondering, because of her age and so many co-morbid issues, whether to begin using the inulin or try to find a dr in SC who… Read more »

Dear Doctor Nemechek, I use the protocol for my 4 year old son for two months. In the first week I saw a much greater awareness, unfortunately in the second week he had to take an antibiotic, there was a deterioration. At the moment there is increased interest in the environment and reaction to commands. The son has a very low result of ceruloplasmin, copper and iron. Could this be related to sibo? Ironing does not help, unfortunately there are not many specialists looking at the whole body. The son receives 1/2 teaspoon of inulin, EVOO 15 ml and 1… Read more »

Hello Dr Nemechek,

We are scheduled to bring my son to you but not until December so we are anxiously waiting! I just have a general question for you! We are currently seeing another Dr that has prescribed Valtrex for the HHV6 virus and then Celexa and Tenex to help regulate the brain. I know you can’t and won’t give medical advice on another medication prescribed by another physician but I wonder if these medications can have an impact on your protocol?

Thank you for your time and we look forward to meeting you!

I am looking to start this protocol with my 16 year old with Aspergers and ADHD – at the moment giving multivitamins/minerals and probiotics. Do I need to stop all these first before starting inulin? Also, olive oil is high in salicylates and we follow a low salicylate diet (Feingold) for behaviour – is there an alternative oil you could recommend? Lastly, being in the UK, how could I source the antibiotic if this is necessary at his age? Thank you

Hello Dr. Nemechek,

Both of my kids are on the Protocol. I wanted to start for myself, but I am breastfeeding. I have read conflicting things about Rifaximin. Can you please clarify if it is safe for me to take while my son is still breastfed? Also, I know you don’t recommend vitamins, however my doctor instructed me to continue prenatal while breastfeeding. Will these interfere with recovery? Thank you so much.

‏My nine-year-old son, he is autism and we began to apply the protocol with him a month ago. I read in your book the deficiency of oxygen and remembered what happened to my son when he was nine months old. Do you benefit from sessions of oxygen if the sessions are now provided by this age ?

Hello, dear Dr. Patrick Nemechek. We are from Russia. All my three children are on the protocol during the month. And we have a question, like many mothers who are on the protocol in Russia. We are all trying to solve it on our own way. But I think perhaps it is better to ask you what to do in such a case and pass your answer to everyone else. My oldest son is 10 years old, he has some underdevelopment of the cerebellum. That is manifested in the form of increased demands for attention, the difficulties of socialization and… Read more »

Hi Dr Nemechek, I met you at the San Diego Diego book signing. My boys are all still doing really well, however I realized their inulin doses were pretty high for their ages, so I backed off by 1/4 tsp. They were at 1.5 tsp so now at 1.25. Ages 3 for the twins and 5 for my oldest. They have all been really off since dropping down. Would you recommend continuing to inch down towards a more age appropriate dose or go back to what was working really well for months? Thank you for your time. Your protocol is… Read more »

And tests show I’m not digesting fats. Will I still get benefits from the oils? Lastly, here is my plan for the protocol, with whatever starting dose for inulin you suggest.

Hello Dr N, Thank you for your great research and for taking the time to respond to parents. I have read your book, watched your videos, and read nearly all your replies. We put our almost 17 month old son on the protocol to be safe. He was on the fish oil and we cook everything with COOC olive oil already. So, we really only changed from a probiotic to the inulin and dropped his multivitamin. He had been on both the probiotic and vitamin since 12 months of age. The probiotic I had him on had a based of… Read more »

You need to live really long for your family and all of us because you are becoming the ‘lifeline’ to us.

Hi Dr N, I believe my daughters issues began after a single use of the probiotic bifidobacterium infantis (developed insomnia, speech and motor skills affected, wetting pants, fatigue, aggression, poor mood, tantrums) we saw improvement on the oils, though aggression remained, then we saw 100% improvement in 1st week of inulin use at 1/16tsp however 1month in we seem to have stepped backwards. If her damage was caused by bifidobacteria am I doing the wrong thing feeding it with the inulin? I don’t understand fully how the inulin can push the bifidobacteria back down into the colon when it is… Read more »

Dr. Nemecheck,
I wanted to thank you so much for all your hard work and research. My son is 2.5 and he is making great gains in his speech and engagement since beginning the protocol 6 weeks ago. I wanted to ask if there was any contraindication to taking a multivitamin with the protocol? I came across a multi vitamin powder that is formulated for children on the spectrum and just wanted to be sure It would not have any negative impact on his progress with your protocol.
Again, Thank you SO much. We are so grateful to you!

Hello Dr. N! My 7 year old son who has ADHD/SPD/Anxiety Disorder has been on protocol since 7/24/18. Doses are 1/2 tsp inulin, 1/2 tsp ultimate omega, and 1.5 tsp evoo (California Ranch cooc). We saw immediate improvement and he did fantastic the first 4 months of school this year. The school could not believe the change in behavior since they saw him in June. However, starting in January of this year he started to regress/relapse. He did have the flu and various colds in January/February. His behavior at school has continuously gone downhill the last 3 months. We’ve also… Read more »

Thank you for taking the time to respond. We’re appreciate your dedication to helping these suffering children. He isn’t taking any probiotics or supplements, just strictly the protocol. He developed myositis after the flu, as he did both of the other times he had influenza in the past, so maybe that is it. We will continue on current doses. Thank you, Dr. N!

Hi Dr. Nemechek. My question is about my 3yr old boy ASD/SPD/nonverbal. We live in the UK and we started the protocol in July 2018. He gradually built up to 1tsp inulin (uk brand initially but switched recently to NOW ) and NN ultimate omega 5ml……we have seen some gains in receptive language and less negative behaviours (but still nonverbal). BUT, I have realised having re-read your book that i miscalculated the DHA/EPA dose and I’ve been giving him too much over the last few months? So in a panic I’ve dropped the inulin back to 1/2tsp and NN Ultimate… Read more »

Our Pediatrician and GI specialist did all all sorts of blood, stool tests, xrays and ultrasounds and didn’t find anything. Finally they have agreed to do a round of Rifaximin and see if that helps.

Hello Dr. Nemechek! My 8 year old was on 4 Fiber Choice gummies for most of the last year for his inulin dosage. After reading many people sharing that the Now powdered inulin was more effective, I tried switching him to 2 tsp per day. Immediately we saw an increase in aggression, anxiety, a lack of emotional regulation (very weepy, pitching fits over little things), and overall regression. In hopes that maybe this was a second awakening, I persevered for a few weeks, but his increased fight or flight response did not seem to improve. I had read about some… Read more »

Thank you. So would we should wait to see if he stops having gains to potentially explore needing the VNS in the future? On a separate note, my 75 yr old father has dementia which seems to be progressing fairly quickly. After seeing improvements with my son and reading more on our protocol, we have recently started him on it as well. After watching your videos, it appears he may need VNS to see gains. Based on your examples in your video the two men did not improve until they started VNS. Is that fairly common for all dementia cases?… Read more »

Thank you Dr Nemechek for your protocol. It’s an answer to my prayers. My four year old is still not conversational but the gains are amazing. I don’t fret much about the daily setbacks because am hopeful we will get there someday. My question is we have lots of mold at home, would it in anyway affect his progress. He rubs his eyes so frequently. Am doing a lot to clear the molds,. But will they affect his progress?

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… Read more »

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.
Unfortunately coming for a visit isn’t a possibility for the foreseeable future. I’m wondering where and how to get a vns? Is that even possible? Thank you for you’re time doctor.

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.

I am very happy for your prompt response. I can then wipe out my grandson. It’s a dog, but I think it will be just like being a dog or a cat. May I recommend some effective parasite to a 4-and-a-half-year-old child. God bless you and your family. Recognized forever.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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??

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

Dr. N,
Do you think the protocol would help with spasmatic vocal dysphonia? The cause is said to be a nervous system disorder…. id love to know your thoughts if you have any. Thanks for all you do,

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

I met you yesterday at your book signing with my three boys. It all happened so quickly and everything I had rehearsed saying never came out. I wanted to thank you for everything you’ve done to help my family. You’ve given us hope, healing and tremendous joy! I just struggle trying to find a way to express my gratitude because words fall short. Thank you for all you’re doing to help people heal. I will forever be thankful for you. Thank you for using your God given gifts and abilities to help others. You’re a true life angel.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

I am wondering where I might get trained and certified to do transcutaneous vagus nerve stimulation… I am a Physiotherapist and Manual Osteopath in Canada and have been trained to use many electrical modalities including a TNS unit… I have the TNS and the ear clip electrodes and have done many searches on training and can not find anything.
Thank you in advance,

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

Thank you . According to IGG allergy hair testing my son a has sensitivity to lemon. Since he can’t have strawberry flavored fish oil and I think it best to refrain from lemon flavored fish oil, can you suggest fish oils that are without these flavors?

Hello Doctor, We read your book and noticed that Palm Kernel oil is fine to use in NP, but it is not mentioned about palm oil. we do take oral dose and cook with recommended EVOO, just wanted to know is it ok to use biscuits made with palm oil.

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!

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.

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.

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

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… Read more »
