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.

Glutathione is one of the bodys main antioxidants and has wide benefits.  It is an immune booster, slows the aging process, protecting against many degenerative conditions and heavy metal toxicity.  For 10 or more years glutathione injections have been used for mercury poisoning, alzheimers, and parkinsons with excellent results. Doctors routinely use Glutathione-promoting drugs to detoxify victims of certain types of drug overdose. However, the pharmaceutical drugs that raise Glutathione levels produce side effects and cannot safely be used long-term.

Raising Glutathione levels during cancer treatment leads to fewer side effects, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, hair loss, and even loss of white blood cells. Higher Glutathione levels speeds the healing process, reduces the possibility of infection, and helps to release drugs and anesthesia from the body. Glutathione protects DNA and RNA from free radical damage, and it protects against cellular peroxidation caused by exposure to pesticides, plastics, benzene and carbon tetrachloride, as well as heavy metals, cigarette smoke, smog, drugs, solvents, dyes, phenols and nitrates. There is no doubt that glutathione is something you want in your health arsenal!

The only problem is that it has been notoriously difficult to supplement orally, as it is broken down by digestion. Even intravenous injections are broken down rapidly and the blood levels of glutathione return to their previous level after only 24 hrs.  If you want to keep the levels up you have to have regular injections at a whopping $200 each! The only other way previously shown effective to increase glutathione was by taking large quantities of whey protein. Both of these methods have been shown to increase glutathione by around 30%.

I was very excited to see the research done on glutathione levels using LifeWave patches. The increase is 300%!  This is absolutely spectacular, plus the levels are more constant so the body remains protected.
