The incidence of autism is rising worldwide.
There has been a sevenfold increase in ASD in the past 10
years. In California, the number of school age children
diagnosed as autistic rose 210% over 11 years. Now the incidence
of ASD is estimated to be 1/150 children.
ASD kids generally exhibit severe abnormality of reciprocal
social relatedness; severe abnormality of communication
development, repetitive behavior and patterns of behavior,
interests, activities and imagination; early onset before
5 years old and abnormal responses to sensory stimuli.
Autism spectrum disorders is a group
of developmental disorders ranging from full fledge autism
to attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity
disorder (ADHD) and pervasive developmental disorder (PDD).
At the top end of the autism spectrum is Asperger’s
syndrome which describes an autistic child who functions
at a high level.
Up to now, no one knows the real cause of ASD. However there
is growing agreement that most causes of autism and ASD
derive from a combination of genetic and environmental factors.
- toxic chemical
- heavy metal contamination
- viral infections
- gluten/casein, enzyme deficiency and
- metallothionein theory
From my experience, most children will
begin improvement when
- digestive system is healed
- immune systems strengthened with vitamins,
minerals and other nutrients
- remove toxins from diet and heavy
metals from bod
- Heal the brain
