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.
