New York Times - “One large Danish study, which included nearly 700,000 births over a decade, found that a mother’s rheumatoid arthritis, a degenerative disease of the joints, elevated a child’s risk of autism by 80 percent. Her celiac disease, an inflammatory disease prompted by proteins in wheat and other grains, increased it 350 percent. Genetic studies tell a similar tale. Gene variants associated with autoimmune disease — genes of the immune system — also increase the risk of autism, especially when they occur in the mother.”
Recently we had a two year old patient (we’ll call her Jane for the sake of the article) that started to exhibit the characteristics of Autism. Jane began to space out. The duration and frequency began to increased, so mom had her checked out thinking she was sick.
With appointments with her pediatrician, neurologist, and other medical professionals, no cause or treatment was given, it was almost like an “I’m sorry mam” approach. But Jane’s mom would not go gentile into that goodnight. She searched for a DAN (Defeat Autism Now) Doctor. With the guidance of a DAN Doctor, a Paleo like diet, and some testing through The Great Plains Laboratory for autism, the DAN Doctor was able to diagnosis a fungal type infection and a parasitic infection that was causing her immune system to go haywire and the brain was over producing neuro transmitters that would end up damaging the brain.
With the paleo like diet to reduce the inflammatory substances found in our regular american diet, a few natural supplements to help stabilize some of the neuro transmitters and help protect the brain, the DAN doctor began to work on defeating the fungal infection and helping the body catch up and over take the parasite.
In mere months Jane has returned to a near normal 2+ year old.
Do we really grasp the entirety of corn, soy, wheat, and other Omega 6 crops inflammatory effects on the human body? No, but most people that start the Paleo Diet and begin to “weed” themselves off Monsanto’s GMO food crops tend to have better long term outcomes. Study on Paleo Diet
Is Autism and Auto Immune Disease? Jane’s mom thinks so and we tend to believe our patients when the other option is “going gentile into that good night”. If it were our child, we would “rage against the dying of the light“
