Autism practically affects every tissue in the body, but from what we have found, the four areas most severely affected are: the brain (and nervous system), the immune system, the digestive system, and the detoxification system. Research has shown that there are actually physical abnormalities in the brains and digestive systems of these children, most especially in the areas responsible for the coordination of movement (the cerebellum) and regulation of emotions (the amygdala). Many children have inflamed and therefore have suffered damage to the linings of their gut/digestive system, allowing incompletely digested food particles to enter the bloodstream, and eventually, the brain, resulting in all sorts of negative consequences, including hyperactivity, speech and comprehension problems. This is the problem with “leaky gut” syndrome, a condition you may have heard of.
Our approach to managing autism takes a more, shall we say “reductionist” approach. We address each of these major areas, sometimes together, sometimes at different times, depending on how your child responds.
Remember, these are NOT drugs. They are mainly nutrients, albeit concentrated nutrients, extracted from food, to perform specific functions in the body. We’re focused on doing the most with the least amount. So far it has worked very well.
