Aspies and the need for salt- chewing in young persons
Autism,let it be known and autistics in general NEED more salt than most people do. The entire anthropology of us that modern autism still will not own up to, those of us doing a real life report the need for extra salt. Ever since childhood and now even as adults we often find our selves craving salt. Most of the time it is not after exercise. It presents just as general need for salt. Many of us go directly to the salt shaker and in my case I use Garlic Salt for a bit of flavor. I just put a bit on my hand and lick it off. Some of us surmise that modern autistic is often chewing on things trying for the salt 'value'.
I can only guess nutrition experts are in an uproar with people going to the salt shaker many times a day. I only guess Autism Experts that should more than anyone know of our salt complex are the ones that are going to scream hogwash the loudest. Of course they don't have a clue to our old working autism and picture thoughts or our keen senses . None have walked in mile in our shoes or have bothered to interview us or learn what we have learned- I guess that is price man pays for placing his trust in experts. (Look at the stock markets) Perhaps the experts you need to trust are the ones that have been there and done that. Ironically we are last ones that will ever be admitted to in autism circle we were purposely forgotten to start with. Rich Shull on the blog Pre Rain Man Autism
