The number of children diagnosed with Autism continues to grow at an alarming rate. The most recent estimates show as many as 1 out of every 67 children is diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. While there are many theories as to the cause of these increases, we believe genetic predisposition along with environmental factors—including but not limited to unprecedented exposure to toxic substances—are the key factors triggering this devastating epidemic. Emerging research supports this, making it clear that autism is a whole-body illness triggering a biological brain disorder.
Current research suggests that many of the illnesses that are afflicting our children today involve toxicological, neurological, immunological, and gastrointestinal components. Children that are being diagnosed with these conditions often have heavy metal burdens, food sensitivities, nutritional deficiencies, chronic inflammations, immune dysfunction, gastrointestinal disturbances, and genetic susceptibilities that are the core of their health problems.
By identifying these underlying problems and treating them through detoxification, nutritional therapy, and supplementation, many of the core reasons for their health problems can be corrected.
Biomedical treatment utilizes diagnostic tools and methods of testing to determine the underlying physiological causes of symptoms particular to an individual suffering with a disease or condition. These underlying physiological conditions include, but are not limited to, chronic fungal, bacterial, viral or parasitic infection, nutritional deficiency, food and inhalant allergies, heavy metal toxicity, systemic inflammation, and immune system deficiencies. Then, with a focus on natural and non-invasive treatments and modalities, an individual's fundamental diagnoses are addressed with methods that have been shown to be effective.
