Autism an Autoimmune Disease?

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.”

Autism locked in your mindRecently 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

At Palmer Chiropractic we offer natural healthcare through chiropractic adjustment of misaligned vertebra that are causing neurological dysfunction, called a subluxation. The nervous sytem controls all of the functions in the body, lack of control leads to DIS-Ease and diminished health. Is your family subluxation free?

Proudly serving Richmond Hill, Midway, and Georgetown without the use of drugs or surgery.

Is it Healthcare? or really a Disease Care System?

In today’s society we use this word “health” very freely without regards to real meaning.

Noah Webster wrote in his original version of the Webster’s Dictionary “HEALTH, n. helth. [from heal.] That state of an animal or living body, in which the parts are sound, well organized and disposed, and in which they all perform freely their natural functions.”, he does go further to speak about plants, animals, and religious health.

Current Webster’s definition “a : the condition of being sound in body, mind, or spirit;especially : freedom from physical disease or pain”

World.Health.Organization – Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

The part that confuses me is the “in which they(parts) all perform freely their natural function.” because we as a society have tried to circumvent the natural function portion of the definition of health and it (natural function) has been deleted from the current Websters Dictionary and substituted with “sound”.

Let’s see if these statements are true or false:

  1. There is a man who takes statin drugs to change the cholesterol in his body. These drugs help him with natural function.
  2. There is a  man who takes statin drugs to change the cholesterol in his body. These drugs help him to remain sound.

#2 is the current all0pathic(medical) model, where the medicines are distributed to try to stabilize a body that has dysfunction and side effects are minor.

#1 is actually false. To help with natural function, the substance would have to come from nature in a normal environment. Examples an orange, apple, broccoli, etc. Statin pharmaceuticals come from a lab and block functions in the body and as time goes on we start to see the unintended consequences like diabetes.

Here is a list of drugs that were approved by the FDA but now the unintended consequences have  landed many people in the hospitals and/or graves prematurely: Celexa,Lexapro,Fosmax, Zoloft, Topamax, Meridia, Accutane, Wellbutrin,   Paxil, Depakote, Reglan to name a few.

Health does not come from a bottle. It comes from inside all of us. It starts with drinking clean water (your body weight / 2 = ounces per day recommended), eating a balanced diet (preferably the Paleo Diet), getting 8 hours of restful sleep (on your back), brisk 30 minutes of exercise 5x a week, and keeping your command and control system (the nervous system) free of interference.

For 117 years chiropractors have been adjusting the spine to clear interference with the nervous system. As science catches up to the chiropractic adjustment, the scientific world is validating what chiropractors have been saying for over a century.

Scientific advancements that have validated just a fraction of what chiropractors have known for years:

Neck Pain   Spinal Manipulation, Medication, or Home Exercise  for  Neck Pain

Headaches   Dose response and efficacy of spinal manipulation for chronic  headache

Asthma   Chronic pediatric asthma and chiropractic spinal manipulation

Infant Reflux    Chiropractic care of a pediatric patient with reflux disease – Palmer Chiropractic Case – Ramsey
