Objective: L-Carnosine is an amino acid dipeptide that may enhance frontal lobe function. We therefore sought to investigate whether L-Carnosine supplementation for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) results in observable, objective changes in language and/or behavior in contrast to placebo.

Design/Methods: Thirty-one children (21 M, mean age= 7.45; range = 3.2-12.5 yrs) meeting inclusion criteria were enrolled in an 8 week blinded trial of either 400 mg BID powdered L-Carnosine or placebo. Children were assessed at a pediatric neurology clinic with the Childhood Autism Rating Scale (CARS), the Gilliam Autism Rating Scale (GARS), the Expressive and Receptive One-Word Picture Vocabulary tests (E/ROWPVT), and biweekly parental Clinical Global Impression of Change (CGI), at baseline and 8 week endpoint. Dr Michael G. Chez is specialist and associate professor in Child Neurology Results: Children who were on placebo (n=17) did not show statistically significant changes on any of the outcome measures. After 8 weeks on L-Carnosine, children (n=14) showed statistically significant improvements on the GARS total score, GARS Behavior, Socialization, and Communication subscales, and the ROWPVT (all p’s<.05). E/ROWPVT and CARS showed trends in improvements, which were supported by parental CGI.

Conclusions: Oral supplementation with 400mg L-Carnosine resulted in demonstrable improvements in autistic behaviors as well as increases in language comprehension that reached statistical significance. Although the mechanism of action of the amino acid is not well understood, it is believed that it acts to modulate neurotransmission and affect metal ion transfer of zinc and copper in the entorhinal cortex. This may enhance neurological function or act in a neuroprotective fashion.

The LifeWave energy Enhancer Patches are disposable Class1 Medical devices which assist in balancing and enhancing health and performance energetically. The Auramed Biopulsar Reflexograph gives a visual image of the state of your bodies energetic health. Many believe that disease begins in our energetic bodies first. Personally I don’t think things are that black and white, but certainly the more balanced our energies, the greater our wellbeing and more resilient we are to fight disease and speed up healing. The picture below shows the aura of a 45 male before the application of the LifeWave patches. Note: dark blue and especially violet and white areas indicate energy blockages. Yellow and orange areas represent lack of energy in respective organs and body parts. The more green and turquoise, the more the aura is energetically in balance.

The effects perceived by those using the patches can vary. Some people are jumping out of their socks, other, like me, feel a gentle sense of wellbeing. However, long term, the Energy Enhancer patches will allow the body to function better and bit by bit you will notice greater wellness in your life.

If you read about me you will see I am a Chiropractor and Massage therapist, so I have seen a lot of people in pain and none of it is good. From a therapists point of view pain makes my job difficult, everything is self-protective, reactive and so much of your time is wasted placating the pain reaction that is happening in the tissues.

Recently I got my first opportunity to test out the LifeWave pain patches-IceWave. I had heard good reports that 80% of people will experience 50% or greater pain relief in under 5 minutes. I had heard of a few cases from colleagues where long standing conditions had been almost instantly relieved and so I had to check it out for myself.

Fiona is a single Mum with three active kids and a knee crushed from a horse falling on it over 20 years ago. The injury has caused her a lot of problems over the years, but recently it flared up badly and when I saw her she was in excruciating pain, she did not want to move it at all which made Physio virtually impossible, she had knife like pain traveling through the whole leg and her inner thigh had turned into a soft pulpy jelly- a reflex inhibition of the Vastus Medialis Oblique muscle that often occurs with knee problems and further complicates rehab.

There is not really much you can do while someone is in that much pain apart from ice/heat/ultrasound, acupuncture would be beneficial but I don’t practice it. Forget any physical therapy-even the lightest pressure was intensely painful and any muscle activation or joint movement was impossible. Not nice.

So, I pulled out a set of patches, put the brown patch over the main pain and the white one just above it. Immediately Fiona experienced warmth and smelt wintergreen. The sharp pain vanished and within a few minutes she did 10 good quad pumps. She kept saying, “What the #### is in those patches! This is unbelievable”. Fiona has had a colorful past…

The interesting thing is there is no wintergreen in the patches and no heat producing chemicals… this reaction is purely energetic. The patches emit a particular energetic frequency that takes away pain.

I then felt to move the white patch to her sternum and she experienced a tremendous energetic release. I could see the goosebumps all over her arms and legs. It was stinking hot in Australia this day, so it wasn’t the cold. She said she was feeling calmness and a sense of wellbeing and the pent up stress that has accompanied this and other issues seemed to leave her body.

I have never seen such a powerful change or received such heartfelt thanks from someone whose life I have just helped. And it was all so easy, and all so quick. What a great adjunct to a busy practice. My new protocol for acute pain will be to patch up patients first for three days, then get them in to start therapy. It will make my job way easier. Will keep you posted in this.

Cardiovascular disease affects more people each year than any other disease or illness. Cardiovascular disease means disease of the heart (cardio) and arteries (vascular). This disease can result in heart attack, stroke, angina or heart failure. The stiffening and hardening of the arteries which makes the heart work harder can occur years or decades before you start experiencing any symptoms. That is why cardiovascular disease is sometimes referred to as the “Silent Killer”.
The most problematic aspect of developing cardiovascular disease is that you don’t know that it’s happening to you. You can’t feel it happening, like catching a cold. There the symptoms are very prominent. You know when you are catching a cold. Cardiovascular disease is another matter. You can’t feel arterial clogging plaque building up, stiffening your arteries and choking off your blood flow to different parts of your body, depriving vital nutrients and oxygen to your cells and organ until it’s too late. You develop angina or have a heart attack or stroke.

It is very important that you do not wait to experience symptoms of cardiovascular disease.

There has been very little preventative test equipment available for early detection of cardiovascular disease, progression or risk. The most common testing available today, although useful, offers little information concerning arterial health. Other state of the art testing equipment currently available is usually found in hospital’s cardiac care units and are either highly invasive (hence risky), extremely expensive, or both.

The Pulse wave Assessment complements the conventional cuff blood pressure measurements and provides additional information on arterial stiffness and performance of the heart. It is able to be used simply in any medical practice and is portable. It is ideally used as part of a preventative health approach, modifying diet, increasing exercise and taking appropriate supplements. Retesting can be done at intervals to monitor progress.

When I was working in a very stressful role in Corporate Health, my body finally said  very loudly “Enough of this folly!”. My blood pressure went through the roof and I ended up having a complete nervous collapse, ending up with chronic fatigue requiring bed rest for 8 months. Fortunately for me, I had someone come to the office and share Resperate with me. I thought it was a great device, well backed by research and introduced its use into our Health Expos. My plan then, and I still see this happening in due time, was to create relaxation rooms for employees and Resperate, among other things, would be available for employees to use when they needed to chill out. When everthing went pear shaped, I had the Resperate to help calm me down (I also developed anxiety and panic attacks). It was such a blessing. I really believe in this product, particularly where stress is a factor in your health issues. Many people, like me, have high BP that does  not repond particularly well to medication, and it is very important for our health that BP is as normal as possible.

Using the Resperate is very relaxing. It uses musical notes, initially that change in time with your breathing and then gradually the notes go for longer, and your breathing slows. They say that if breath rate goes down to under 7/minute for 10 minutes or so the autonomic nervous system relaxes. Its like the Resperate pulls the stress out of your body. But there’s more to it than that. The biofeedback device that is strapped around your chest monitors whether you are listening and timing your breathing to the notes. Often people’s mind can wander, even without them knowing it and their breath rate increases. They find themselves thinking about how horrible and mean the neighbour was about the dog barking, concern over the daughters new boyfriend blah blah blah…that stinking thinking has major magnetism…When this happens the Resperate picks up that you are not listening and concentrating and has all sorts of strategies built in to “wake you up” and bring you back on track. While the Resperate has been proven to lower blood pressure, I belive that is just one of the benefits of learning how to spend 15 minutes a day doing nothing but breathing. It is a way to meditate and chill out for the everyday man.

Applied Kinesiology is not one of my strong points, but those who master it find all sort of interesting uses for it.  I have added a link to this video because it shows how the energy patches influence the body. This can also be helpful to determine if people are energetically switched.  In this case, the white patch in the right hand and tan in the left will weaken the body instead of strengthening it and the opposite configuration will strengthen the body. If this is the case with you, follow the patch protocol, but use the white patch on the left and tan on the right side of the body.

Since I am having a research day, I thought I would post this article on links between heavy metal toxicity, specifically Mercury, immunization and Autism. It is written by Robert Kennedy Jr. is senior attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Council.

By Robert Kennedy Jr. | July 1, 2005

MOUNTING EVIDENCE suggests that Thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative in children’s vaccines, may be responsible for the exponential growth of autism, attention deficit disorder, speech delays, and other childhood neurological disorders now epidemic in the United States.

Prior to 1989, American infants generally received three vaccinations (polio, measles-mumps-rubella, and diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis). In the early 1990s, public health officials dramatically increased the number of Thimerosal-containing vaccinations without considering the cumulative impact of the mercury load on developing brains.

In a 1991 memo, Dr. Maurice Hilleman, one of the fathers of Merck’s vaccination programs, warned his bosses that 6-month-old children administered the shots on schedule would suffer mercury exposures 87 times the government safety standards. He recommended that Thimerosal be discontinued and complained that the US Food and Drug Administration, which has a notoriously close relationship with the pharmaceutical industry, could not be counted on to take appropriate action as its European counterparts had. Merck ignored Hilleman’s warning, and for eight years government officials added seven more shots for children containing Thimerosal.

Mercury is a known brain poison, and autism rates began rising dramatically in children who were administered the new vaccine regimens. A decade ago the American Academy of Pediatrics estimated the autism rate among American children to be 1 in 2,500. Today, the CDC places the rate at 1 in 166, or 1 in 80 boys. Additionally, one in six children is now diagnosed with a related neurological disorder.

In 2000, the CDC met with pharmaceutical companies and the FDA in secret to review its findings linking Thimerosal with the dramatic rise in neurological illnesses. According to transcripts, participants were alarmed about the undeniable links between the Thimerosal and widespread brain damage in children. Dr. Bill Weil told the group, ”You can play with [the results] all you want. They are statistically significant.” Dr. Richard Johnston admitted he feared his grandchild getting a Thimerosal-containing vaccine. But the group was most concerned with keeping the findings secret. ”Consider this embargoed information,” said Dr. Roger Bernier, a senior director at the National Immunization Program, at the meeting’s close. The CDC now says it has ”lost” the data that supported the crucial study and has persistently defied congressional requests and federal law requiring it to open up the federal Vaccine Safety Database to scientists and the public.

Numerous animal, DNA, epidemiological, and other studies point to Thimerosal as a culprit in America’s epidemic of neurological disorders. Autistic children have been shown to have higher mercury loads than nonautistics, and there have been reports of significant improvements in some brain-injured children by removing mercury from their brains. Most of the symptoms of autism are similar to the symptoms of mercury poisoning. Scientists have been able to induce autism-like symptoms in mice by exposing them to Thimerosal. A recent study by an FDA scientist, Dr. Jill James, found that many autistic children are genetically deficient in their capacity to produce glutathione, an antioxidant generated in the brain that helps remove mercury from the body.

Government health agencies who green-lighted Thimerosal have turned a blind eye to the hundreds of studies linking Thimerosal to a wide range of neurological disorders and joined the pharmaceutical industry to gin up a series of flawed European studies to exonerate Thimerosal. Those studies examined children exposed to a tiny fraction of the Thimerosal given to American kids and took advantage of the autism spike that resulted from deceptive data-gathering in Scandinavia to argue that autism rates are unrelated to Thimerosal use.

Drug makers wary of liability reduced Thimerosal in most children’s vaccines in recent years, but the preservative remains in flu shots, tetanus boosters, and over-the-counter drugs. Mercury-laced vaccine stocks were given to American children until the end of 2003.

Government officials who continue to champion Thimerosal should recognize that this is not just a theoretical exercise in bureaucratic face-saving. Their wrong-headed defense of Thimerosal safety in the face of overwhelming science is discouraging testing of promising treatments which may be effective. They are depriving vulnerable populations from being identified to avoid Thimerosal. They also cannot escape responsibility for their failure to warn international health agencies and governments who, based upon American assurances, are now injecting the developing world’s children with this brain-killing chemicals.

Lifewave patches are usually recommended to be used over acupuncture points, however they will still work if placed anywhere over the body. It is just that meridians are lightwave paths that increase their effectiveness. Dr Karen Guenette, a medical doctor and acupuncturist who has been using Lifewave in her practice for some time now recently explained it like this:

“Both acupuncture and Lifewave activate the body’s energy system to heal itself. Both use specific acu-points on the body for its effect. But here is where they differ:
Lifewave patches are programmed to perform specific functions in the body, such as increasing fat burning for energy like in the Energy Enhancer patch, or telling the cells to put together more Glutathione molecules in order to detoxify the body and mop up free radicals like in the Y-Age patch.
Acupuncture has no specific programming except for the actual point location and intention we use that point for. In acupuncture, I cannot increase the body’s strength by 40% within minutes of needling someone like the Energy Enhancers can!
Acupuncture, on the other hand, can treat a variety of ailments all at once. Acupuncture, of course, requires a specialist to perform and the availability of the patient to come to regular weekly appointments (at least initially). Each appointment is about 1.5 hours long, and it is suggested that you should take it easy after each appointment, precluding any heavy duty work or exercise for the rest of that day usually.
The nice thing about Lifewave patches is that you can try them for a week or so, and really get to know whether or not your body responds to its programming. There is very little risk because you don’t have to buy an entire month’s supply right away. Trial packs of Energy Enhancer, Rest Quiet, and IceWave are available.
Say you had insomnia and couldn’t get a decent night’s sleep. You could come to acupuncture 3-5 times to see whether it would help. Now during that time, I’d be possibly looking for other things to treat. That would cost around between $375 – $525 and take about 9.5 hours of your time total.
The Silent Nights patch is $39.95 for a month’s supply. You need to use it everyday for at least four days. Most people respond within that time, and if not, almost everyone responds within about 3 weeks.
I’ve had many patients not have to pay for acupuncture because they found relief in a simple patch…and let me tell you, they were absolutely thrilled!”

This is info from a newsletter from Dr. Julian Whitaker, one of the Directors of the Marcus Autism center. He found that there are natural things that can be done to treat a child with autism. Here’s a summary of what he recommends.

1. Test the child for mercury and other heavy metals. If found, then do chelation therapy on the child. Transdermal and oral DMPS has been found to remove mercury as has glutathione injections. One study of chelation’s results on 152 autistic patients found that 36% had a marked improvement, 39% had a moderate improvement, 15% had a slight improvement and only 10% had no improvement.

2. Autistic children tend to have dietary allergies to dairy products and gluten. Also get them off sugar, artificial sweeteners, preservatives, food dyes and hydrogenated oils.

Use good multivitamin and mineral supplements since more than half the kids were found deficient in Vitamins A, B1, B3, B5, biotin, selenium, zinc, magnesium, essential amino acids and omega 3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids.

3. Glutathione is an antioxidant and detoxifier that is depleted in most autistic children. It can be given to the child either intravenously or orally but the best way is by using the LifeWave glutathione patches. when using the patches, please start gently, being aware of detox reactions that can occur in these children. you may need to start with placing the patches on the body for only a few hours a day. Look for feelings of nausea etc and drink plenty of pure spring or filtered water.

4. Finally, investigate having the child experience a pressurized chamber to breathe 100% oxygen. This is highly effective for treating brain and neurological disorders.
