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?

High Blood Pressure

Discussion: The findings of this study represent the first demonstration of a sustained BP lowering effect associated with a procedure to correct the alignment of the Atlas vertebra. The improvement in BP following the correction of Atlas misalignment is similar to that seen by giving two different antihypertensive agents simultaneously. Moreover, this reduction in BP persisted at 8 weeks and was not associated with pain or pain relief or any other symptom that could be associated with a rise in BP.

Secondary Infection for Low Back Pain Injections

The CDC is reporting that people who have been treated for Fungal Meningitis from the contaminated back pain injections are at risk for developing fungal spinal abscess. A spinal abscess threatens the spinal cord by compression and also with vascular compromise.

Low Back Pain Injections Kill 29 and rising

Prognosis: Poor – Dr. Carol A. Kauffman, an expert on fungal diseases at the University of Michigan, said “in these instances, all that can be done is administration of more antifungal drugs and hope for the best.”

The best of the best fungal specialists are running out of cures for this contamination.

Back Pain Injections Are Temporary

According to Spine Health “while the effects of the injection tend to be temporary – providing relief from pain for one week up to one year“. Cost per injection (3 is normal) $500-$700 each session, Total cost $1500-$2100 per year of relief.

Back Surgery for Sciatica is Temporary

According to  Dr. Steven Cohen from the John Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, “Surgery may help in the short term. Studies haven’t found an effect in people who did or didn’t have an operation a couple of years down the line.
Low Back Surgery Total Cost and Recovery: $78,000 – $121,000.

Chiropractic Safer and More Cost Effective

To quote the Medical Researchers, “After controlling for severity and demographics, no health maintenance care is generally as good as chiropractor care.” (Spinal Care) – http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21407100

An actuarial review of the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee’s general health plans claims between October 1, 2004 and September 30, 2006 was undertaken and records revealed –  “Paid costs for episodes of care initiated with a DC were almost 40% less than episodes initiated with an MD.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21109053
