CONSULTATIONS FOR ASD CHILDREN/ADULTS
The Defeat Autism Now! doctors and scientists believe that autism is what happens as a result of malfunctioning in a child’s biochemistry. This usually involves problems with detoxification (removal of toxins from the body); nutritional deficiencies, gut problems, and immune system problems. The underlying conditions can be identified through scientific testing and supported biomedically, leading to great improvements in many children.
Generally speaking, the earlier the support, the better the chance of recovery. Some children have actually lost their diagnosis of ASD.
I advise parents to be aware that during the initial consultation(s) we shall be discussing: –
- How to trial/implement a gluten-free and casein-free diet. A diagnostic laboratory test is available to ascertain the need for this type of diet.
- How to remove additives, sugar, processed foods and drinks from the diet.
- Diagnostic laboratory testing (see testing page).
- The use of nutritional supplements, and which ones to start with first.
I strongly recommend parents read Dr. Jacquelyn McCandless’ book, Children with Starving Brains – A Medical Treatment Guide for Autistic Spectrum Disorders, 2nd edition, ISBN 1-883647-10-X. Dr. McCandless is one of the leading biomedical doctors in the United States and is supporting her own granddaughter under the biomedical protocol developed by the Defeat Autism Now! movement. This book is written for parents so they can understand and collaborate with the biomedical protocol. Buy it here.
Another excellent book (and probably an easier read) is ‘Healing the New Childhood Epidemics’
by Kenneth Bock M.D.
