Autism is a condition of neuroinflammation, changes to cerebellar anatomy, differences in neurotransmitters, mitochondrial dysfunction.
The estimated rate of occurrence of autism is now 1 out of 150 children. Whether it is ADD, ADHD, miscellaneous developmental delays, autism, etc., it is also estimated that 1 out of 6 children has one of these conditions. It’s not only genetic factors but also environment and lifestyles that are causing an epidemic of neurological conditions especially autism.
Many of these children have underlying health issues that affect their brain function which can be treated and bring as close as possible to normality. These Underlying health issues not only impact their brain function but also make them prone to digestive problems, skin disorder, chronic constipation, tooth decay, seizures etc if not treated on time.
Underlying Causes in Neurological Conditions and Areas to focus
Step-1 : Gut Health Restoration
ASD children commonly have overgrown bacteria/ yeast/ parasites. They also have leaky gut issues, food allergies/ sensitivities, immune reaction to not just gluten, casein but to more foods. So focus on treating gut through dietary changes / supplements, removing pathogens, reducing inflammation and healing leaky gut.
Step-2 : Detoxification Program
Due to a weak detox system in ASD children, they have less ability to excrete toxins, chemicals, additives, heavy metals, pollution etc. Oxidative stress which damages healthy tissues of the body including the brain. Mitochondrial impairment is a common issue in ASD children, and free radical damage has to be minimized to promote any recovery. Specialized detoxification supplements will help to improve alongside a nutrition diet plan and detoxification protocol.
Step-3 : Nutritional supplements
ASD children require vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, antioxidants, phytonutrients to deal with oxidative stress, mitochondrial dysfunction and endotoxins created by overgrown bacteria / yeast. This way we can repair in order to restore proper brain function.
Many parents call it ‘Traumatic event’ the moment when the diagnosis of ‘Autism’ is announced and followed by the statement ‘There is nothing that can be done’.
Hundreds of children including my own child have become almost indistinguishable from typically developing (normal) peers. The sooner the treatment starts, the better the results because the younger the child is, the less damage has to be undone and also because they have less catching up to do in their development with normal children of their age.
Aditi has been trained directly from Dr Natasha Cambell Mcbride to provide Nutritional and Detoxification protocol for the neurological conditions like epilepsy, learning disabilities, neuromuscular disorders, autism, ADD, brain tumors, and cerebral palsy etc.
She is also certified IFM Functional Medicine practitioner to find root cause issues / imbalances through advanced functional lab testing and create personalized treatment to treat those conditions naturally without using amphetamine-like stimulants, anti-psychosis drugs etc. Treatment program focuses on dietary plans, nutritional supplementation and detoxification strategies.
