What The Autistic Body Needs To Stay Healthy

vitamins

In addition to diet, the autistic body is often lacking proper nutrition. This isn’t hard to believe considering many children in general have picky appetites. The truth is though, is that the body cannot fight off sickness nor can the brain operate at its full potential without the proper food and nutrition. If your child won’t sign onto the idea of eating an array of foods with vital vitamins, a supplement may be the answer. Below are some of the most common vitamins and supplements that have been found beneficial in treating Autism.

· Vitamin B1 (Thiamine): A body with a Thiamine deficiency doesn’t deliver the proper fuel to the brain in order for it to function. Because of this, inflammation and damage to the brain are very possible. Gastrointestinal disorders, which come hand in hand with Autism, can cause an inability for the body to absorb Vitamin B1.

· Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin): Autistic bodies have been found to have a mutated enzyme (MTHFR). Vitamin B2 is needed for the healthy production of MTHFR and also aids in metabolizing fats, proteins, and carbohydrates.

· Vitamin B3 (Niacin) is traditionally given to increase skin quality and circulation, but its benefits outreach luminous skin. In a case study, rats that had a stroke were given Vitamin B3, and it was shown that new, healthy brain cells were created and they experienced improved neurological function. Not only has Vitamin B3 been prescribed for circulatory issues, but for many conditions such as depression, anxiety, high cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes.

· Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine Hydrochloride): Research has found a link between those who are suffering from Autism and those with a particular form of epilepsy (seizure disorder). When taken with magnesium, Vitamin B6 helps alleviate several Autism symptoms.

· Vitamin B12 (cobalamin): Vitamin B12 is one of the most essential of the B vitamins as it is normally responsible for metabolizing every cell in the body. In order to have a healthy working nervous system, Vitamin B12 is essential. A deficiency of Vitamin B12 has been known to cause a number of conditions such as delirium, anxiety, delayed thinking, and developmental regression.

· Folic Acid: A deficiency of Folic Acid has many of the same issues as that of Vitamin B12, only with potential digestive issues as well. Folic acid is necessary to maintain healthy cell production and maintaining DNA. Some research has indicated that Autistic Children have a deficiency in their “Folic Acid Cycle”.

· Vitamin A: This vitamin is necessary for language processing as well as tissue growth. Some research has shown that Vitamin A supplements can aid in memory, visual perception and language production.

· Vitamin C: Many Autistic bodies have shown a deficiency in Vitamin C. Supplementing this vitamin can promote the body to excrete toxins like heavy metals.

Homotoxicology 101: What is it? And How Can It Treat Autism?

The basBrain Wavesic idea of homotoxicology is to restore the body’s chemical balance by detoxifying. It shares the same idea as Chelation, which is the process of removing heavy metals from the Autistic body. With homotoxicology, homeopathic remedies are given to help the body learn to heal itself. A belief of homotoxicology is that every human being regardless of age, race, gender, or nationality has the ability to instill healing mechanisms  and processes within themselves that can prevent and treat illness.

Homotoxicology was developed in Germany over 50+ years ago and is becoming more and more studied and used at this point in the Uniter States.

Practicing homotoxicology promotes the idea that it is believed that almost every disease is the result of an overabundance of toxins within the body.

In order to start the process, homotoxicology calls for homeopathic remedies to be administered to the body. Homeopathic remedies are FDA approved and are given orally, topically, via inhalation, or by IV injection. A great deal of homeopathic remedies are all natural and have been developed organically from animals, minerals, or plants. Once the remedy is in the body, it goes to work aggressively to stimulate the part of the body that is believed to be able to heal itself. Small amounts of remedies yield to the body practicing its ability to restore its health.

Another view of homotoxicology is that “Like yields like”. In short, this means that the side effects of a remedy may cause a similar reaction to that which is being treated. In essence the body is being given a substance that will trigger these symptoms to train the body to fight them. You can compare this to a chicken pox or flu shot that injects the body with the condition to get the body educated on how to fight.

Because of the dangerously high amounts of chemicals just in our oxygen, let alone through our homes, or supermarkets, or any public place, the body can pick up disease, sickness, and chemical traces rather easily. Toxins that are picked up from an external source are called Exogenous. The liver, kidneys and skin membranes do their best to take these chemicals and rid the body of them.

Endogenous toxins are created inside the body and reak havoc on the body just as the exogenous can. These toxins are often the result of nutrient deficiencies, emotional traumas, psychological stress, and histamine. These conditions constantly generate toxins that can adversely affect cells, tissues, organs, etc.

Next week, we’ll take a look at the homotoxicology process and dig a bit deeper into this holistic type approach to Autism, Diabetes, and other diseases in which poor chemical balance could exist.  You won’t want to miss next week’s post.

Meanwhile, please as any questions you might have regarding this process, and we’ll address them accordingly!
