How long does my child need to be on the protocol?

I expect treatment is going to be for the next many years at least, and here’s why: The bacterial overgrowth in the intestine leads to the production of propionic acid (causes autistic behaviors- loss of eye contact, strange behaviors, suppression of cognition) and the leakage of LPS (a fragment of the ‘fish’ bacteria from the colon).nnLPS migrates to the brain and triggers a priming effect in microglia (white blood cells) within the brain. The primed-microglia cause a permanent and long-lasting inflammatory response that prevents proper pruning (causes developmental delay) and brain repair (causes cumulative brain injury).nnStopping inulin will cause a relapse of bacterial overgrowth again and renewed production of propionic acid. Reduction of inulin and fish oil will increase the abnormal inflammatory response within the brain from the primed-microglia.
