Autism...addressing the root causes

Autism...addressing the root causes

It is essential to identify the root causes of Autism, and eliminate them, in order that your child can reach his or her full potential.  Research is funded by the pharmaceutical industry and is not geared towards identifying the root causes, but rather the effects which the causes have on the body, as these are scientifically measurable in medical tests. Unfortunately research is focused on managing the effects, using medication...not on eliminating the root causes.   However THE ROOT CAUSES OF AUTISM HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED!   Now there IS an effective way forward for people suffering with Autism.   For more information click here

How does it feel to have Autism?

 Imagine that the messages you are receiving from the world are so scrambled and distorted that ordinary things just don’t make sense. Your world is a jigsaw puzzle of scattered pieces. This is what daily life can be like for people with autism.

Not surprisingly, when you can’t understand clearly what’s going on and you can’t communicate effectively with anyone, you retreat into you own world, turning away from speech and avoiding eye contact. You find it hard to understand other people’s feelings, and other people find it hard to understand you.


Autistic children and adults try to cope in a number of ways. In an attempt to create order from the jumble of their senses, they may develop obsessive patterns of behaviour – insisting on going the same way, doing the same things. Or they may develop apparently irrational fears.
It is usually parents who first notice “something strange” about their young child’s behaviour. He or she may not play imaginatively with toys or other children, they may seem indifferent to what’s going on, and/or talks “at” people in an odd, repetitive way, paying little attention to their responses. Some autistic children also behave in a challenging way, screaming or biting and kicking other people, perhaps because they are anxious and frightened. One theory is that autistic children are super-sensitive to certain sounds, which can make them irritable, frustrated and even hysterical. “It’s as though he’s permanently at an airport and hearing through the loudspeaker system”, said one mother about her autistic son.


Autism is far more than a problem of behaviour. It is a complex and variable form of disability affecting four times as many boys as girls. Three quarters of autistic children also have learning difficulties or other disabilities; while a tenth have a special skills such as music or art.

The causes of Autism

There are different theories about what causes autism...for latest research results click here

Whatever the cause, the result is a sensory-processing disorder, so that the autistic person receives information in a distorted and disorganized fashion, in turn disrupting their ability to communicate. It’s vital to spot autism early in a child’s life if they are to be helped out of their isolation – and if their families are to receive the necessary support.

The Orthodox Approach
Traditionally, autistic children have been put in residential schools and kept out of the community. Holding” or physically restraining children to modify their behaviour has also been tried, as have sedative drugs and medication.

 

The Health Transformer Approach.
The Health Transformer approach to autism is unique and the following treatment is likely to be the most beneficial.   Results have been very encouraging.
Autism is not like some illnesses, for which you take a pill and have an 80-90 percent chance of success. It is a matter of selecting a range of treatments and educational tools which will help to improve the quality of a child’s life. Each child’s response to treatment will vary – from dramatic improvement to subtle change.
Many parents look at complementary medicine and see a whole range of possible treatments for their child. They are often very uncertain what action to take. At this center we have had considerable experience with autistic children, and this is our recommended approach.


Our approach looks at each child as an individual…not as a diagnosis.   We work under the understanding that the child’s entire system is affected by something which is compromising his/her normal neurology and brain function…the question is “what?”   We find all the missing  bits of the jigsaw and put them together for you.


It is important to understand that the gut is the key to normal body and brain function.   It is in the gut that we manufacture neurotransmitters which affect our brain and nervous system, and determine how they work.   If the gut is compromised, the brain and nervous system will be too.

The gut is also where 70% of the immune system lies…in the form of our good gut bacteria (the gut microbiome)   This microbiome is not present in babies who have been bore by caesarean section, as it is obtained only by swallowing the mother’s microbiome  during the passage through the mother’s birth canal.   If the mother has had antibiotics before or during pregnancy, she will not have a healthy microbiome to pass on to her baby.   If the baby requires antibiotics its microbiome will be destroyed by them.   If the microbiome is compromised, then so is the digestion, and uptake of nutrients, the production of hormones and neurotransmitters, and the immune system of the baby…hence its normal development is also compromised.   As to this the assault on a bay by vaccination…5 in 1 virus are injected into a baby before the age of 3 months…into an unformed immune system!!   No wonder there is a huge rise in Autism over the past 30 years.   A baby with a compromised gut and immune system has no chance of being able to handle this kind of assault without damage.

Our Unique Approach
Meta Health Scan

The Meta Health Scan is carried out utilizing the amazing diagnostic ability of Clinical Kinesiology.   It is reliable, accurate and reproducible. The scan will reveal the imbalances unique to an individual body, what is causing them, and how they are creating symptoms.   The scan reveals such issues as endogenous bio-toxicity, the state of the microbiome, nutrient imbalances or deficiencies, sub-clinical infections, allergies and food sensitivities.  We also test for organ imbalances, hormone imbalance, and leaky gut.    Any abnormality in these areas will easily be picked up during the Health Scan. We also examine your entire lifestyle, sleep quality and any emotional/psychological contributors to your condition.

5 Step Protocol

1. Detect (In-Depth Evaluation & Advanced Testing)
2. Detox (Heavy Metals, Chemicals, Hydrocarbons, Bleaches, EMF)
3. Eliminate (Pathogens…virus, post virus, bacteria, parasites, fungi)
4. Rebuild (Tissues & Pathways)
5. Rebalance organs (kidneys, liver, etc.)

The 5 Steps to Restoring Health Protocol had been developed following many years of research and experience and utilizes food, nutritional supplements, herbal and energetic formula
 

In-Depth Consultation regarding your results.
Once this information is gathered we offer you an in-depth consultation to discuss your results, during which we discuss what has been revealed by the scan, where and how this has arisen, and how to remove or transform it, and reboot your system.   I believe it is very important for each person to understand what has been going on in their body, how the condition has developed, and how to unravel and resolve it naturally.   My intention is not just to teach you about your condition, but more importantly to empower you with understanding in order that you are able to take back control of your health.

Individually tailored Treatment Plan
Together we create an individualized tailored treatment plan.   This may include some or all of there: a gentle detoxification protocol, dietary changes, specific supplements, life style changes, exercise, etc tailored to your specific needs. In the majority of cases treatment can be implemented by you at home without the need for repeated visits to the center; however Health Coaching and support is built in to this package to assist you through your treatment.


Supportive Treatments
Once on the prescribed treatment, some clients choose to support their system with other therapies toastiest healing.   This is not essential but will speed up your progress.   These include Acupuncture/acupressure, Aromatherapy Massage, EFT, Hypnotherapy, Cranio-Scacral therapy, Reiki, and NLP coaching…all of which are on offer at this center.
I am delighted to be able to report that the results our clients achieve with this approach are very encouraging, and lasting in the vast majority of cases.

It is vital to start treatment as soon as possible after autism is diagnosed. The younger the child is, the easier it is for any treatment to be effective.
Once the Meta Health Scan has been done and the results are acted upon, children usually show improvement in behaviour and all aspects of their wellbeing within two weeks…although the treatment will take a couple of months to complete.

Supportive Treatments

Parents of autistic children are unsung heroes and heroines. They also need support, which may take the form of relaxation, reiki, acupuncture healing or aromatherapy.

Cranio-Sacral Osteopathy
According to one osteopath, autism is not a syndrome but a wide-spectrum mode of behaviour with multi-factorial aspects – behavioural, mechanical, emotional and biochemical. One possible treatment involves cranial osteopathy (“involuntary movement”). This subtle movement of the bones in the skull allows the body to find a fulcrum, enabling it to rebalance itself optimally.

Nutrition
Personalized gentle detox protocol specific dietary changes, and supplementation where indicated.


Psychotherapy and Counselling

We offer a comprehensive range of “fast change” techniques and interventions which transform and delete negative brain patterns and emotions permanently


Autism is often confusing and distressing, not just for the autistic child but for his or her family. For this reason counselling often focuses on helping carers to manage their own feelings about and relationship with the child, as well as coping with the child’s challenging behaviour. This kind of support seems to be long term and may involve EFT counselling, medical input and periods of respite care.


“Psychotherapy or psychology can also help carers and families learn how to praise and reward appropriate behaviour”, says one psychotherapist, “so as to foster positive development and to discourage negative or inappropriate behaviour. Most autistic children also need special schooling, and careful planning is needed to help the child make the transitions from home to school, between schools or from school to adult educational provision”.


Speech and Language Therapy (not on offer at this center)
Autism is a complex and pervasive developmental disorder. It can affect a child’s social and emotional development as well as the capacity to learn language and to succeed at school. Some children may be given a diagnosis of Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) or Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Some children may be diagnosed as being only mildly affected , or as having Asperger’s Syndrome. These children may be able to function well at school, as long as they get the appropriate support.
Most children will need help with communication skills. Many struggle to learn language. These children also have difficulty in learning to pick up the more subtle clues in social relationships- to “read” facial expressions and other non-verbal cues which are such an important part of communication. Children on the autistic spectrum usually need help in making friends and in behaving in ways which are socially appropriate. It is in these areas, as well as the development of language or other means of communication, that speech and language therapists are able to advise and help.


Self Care
Flower remedies: Bluebell and Sundew, both Australian Bush flowers, are said to be helpful in autism.
Aromatherapy: Soothing oils such as clary sage and jasmine may be useful in calming an overwrought child.
