my daughter is having problems talking, I don|t know if it is aspergers, depression or what? She seems to be in a different world at times and won't even respond when talked to, as if she doesn't hear me. Those same times, she will also skip meals. It is very frustrating and I don't know how to help her. I have been to several doctors in the past and recently again to a naturopath, still no answers though
has anyone experienced the same?

I try to ask her, but there are times when just does not respond and I don't even know if she hears me, cause she does not react either, it takes her long to react , like getting her to get on the bus, or sit down in a restaurant

If she is an adult, you'd have had evidence of diagnosis long ago. Maybe she is stressed out, trying to lose weight or just distracted. Maybe she is depressed? I think of my adult child and this sort of behavior could be from anything; job/school stress, money woes, being in love or just being bored with my company. Have you asked her about it?
