The Low Oxalate Diet

Oxalates are found in many foods that can link up with calcium and other minerals causing crystal formation – leading to accumulation in body tissues such as the brain, muscles, joint, kidney, etc. They can overtime disturb normal functioning of body chemistry and metabolism. Susan Owens, MAIS, RA has been an independent autism biomedical researcher for years. She created the Autism Oxalate Project to support research into the oxalate problem in autism, and also to help support parents who are seeking help with the Low Oxalate Diet.
