Although advances are being made everyday in discovering the cause of Autism, there still is no definitive answer. It’s universally believed that Autism is a combination disorder that can be attributed partly to genetics and party to the environment. More and more evidence is being found that genetics truly does play a larger part than we have been lead to believe.
Over the last few weeks, we’ve discussed the toxic body of Autistic children. We’ve talked about the sources of these toxins, as well as ways to detoxify or rid the body of these toxins. Once it is found that the body is indeed toxin infected, and the body is cleaned of these toxins, the next step is to “rebuild” or “repair” the body from the damage that was done to it.
Over the years, it has been debated whether or not factors other than neurological ones have anything to do with Autism and other Neurological Disorders. Studies have found that many ND’s begin in the stomach and can be results of a poor or lacking diet.
What are Biomedical Treatments?
If you are a parent or carer of a child with an autism spectrum disorder, you are bound to have heard of biomedical treatments for autism, but what are they?
Unlike traditional psychotropic drug therapies, biomedical treatments work by addressing what is triggering or causing the autism in the child, rather than just treating or masking symptoms.
Biomedical approaches are working wonders all over the world and are helping children that some doctors had given up on, and working what many parents would call “miracles”. What could be more miraculous than having eye contact with your child for the first time in years or hearing them say their first word?
A Menu of Biomedical Approaches
In an interview, Jenny McCarthy, autism crusader, writer and mother to Evan, spoke about there being a menu of biomedical treatments to choose from and that you need to work through this menu until you find what works for your child. Every child is unique and has different needs, and the right treatment for your child will often depend on what is actually causing your child’s autism.
Here are some examples of biomedical approaches which are being successfully used to treat autism :-…
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has been adapted from use by deep sea divers and the navy, to being used all around the world to treat and heal a multitude of diseases and conditions with remarkable results. HBOT is being hailed as a revolutionary and ground-breaking treatment for conditions and injuries like:-
- Strokes and brain injuries
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Circulatory problems
HBOT has even been approved by the FDA for 13 different conditions! It is not a fad, it is a recognized treatment with proven results.
The conditions which HBOT treats so successfully all have something in common – they are all conditions which can benefit from an increased amount of oxygen in the blood.…
