THIS PROGRAM IS FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY FOR INDIVIDUALS TO IMPROVE THEIR OVERALL HEALTH.
Circle of Health Explanation:
Inner circle: Food
Combining the right food for the individual:
Many children with autism have food allergies or intolerances and as a result damaged intestinal tracts and in-balanced gut flora. Yeast is formed easily in a weak environment. Yeast feeds on sugar. It then produces toxic chemicals including alcohol. Alcohol is easily carried in the blood to the frontal lobes of the brain where it inhibits nerve growth and brain development often manifesting as:
Second ring: Organ/glands
The patient needs help on the Specific organ and glands that are stressed. The Gut >> Brain >>Immune triad affects Autistic kids the most. Brain and Gut functions need to be addressed. Studies have shown improving gut health >> improves brain function ….Brain and gut are the two main organs that need to be addressed. The right combination of supplements can improve function.
Third Ring: Exercise, Sleep, Integrated functional medicine, Vitamins, and Minerals
Exercise: Studies have shown exercise (vigorous) 20-30 minutes aerobic for 4-5 days a week improves autistic signs and symptoms. Aerobic exercise increases endorphin release which helps reduce inflammation, improves neurotransmitter release, brain function and reduces psychological stress. Credits:
Anaerobic exercise; core and strength training:
Fourth Ring: Sleep
Restorative sleep: The first 4 hours helps heal the physical body, the second 4 hours helps heal the mental body. 80% of Autistic children have sleep disorders. Signs and symptoms that occur from decreased sleep:
Helps improve sleep quality and quantity:
Role Of Vitamin D In Autism
The risk of autism could be lowered significantly by women using vitamin D supplements before conception, during pregnancy, and after birth. Research suggests that pregnant and nursing women require 5000 IU (150 mcg)/day of vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) during pregnancy and lactation for best pregnancy outcomes and in order to give the infant enough vitamin D3 during nursing. Omega 3Fatty acids/Fish oils are essential for the development and function of the brain. Omega-3 fatty acids are popular nutritional supplements and widely considered safe.
Hyperbaric Chamber Therapy Overview
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) works as its name implies – hyper (more of) and baric (pressure) and in fact, that is how it works. It is the increased pressure of the gas we breathe every day that can signal the DNA in our cells to perform healing tasks that the body normally can’t do. Ground zero for this activity is the mitochondria, which are the little organelles inside of our cells that convert oxygen and sugar into the gasoline the cells run on (ATP) – this is called cellular respiration. It doesn’t take much to knock mitochondria off-line and then that cell can’t perform the job it was assigned. So, be it oxygen deprivation, external toxic exposure, or a hyper-immune reaction to an infection or a vaccine the mitochondria will be damaged. We know how Hyperbaric therapy works – it works by reviving the little mitochondria and causes mitochondrial biogenesis so that if you need more mitochondria in your neurons more of them will form. It is interesting to note that the reason the ketogenic diet helps patients with certain types of neurological problems is that ketone bodies help support mitochondrial function. Hyperbaric therapy is the most effective way to do this. It is that simple – this is not rocket science, but it is non-invasive brain repair. As long as supportive biomedical interventions are taking place at the same time, be that detoxification, the appropriate diet for that child (GF/SF/CF, the SC diet or the GAPS diet, etc.), the appropriate supplements are on board, (folinic acid, B12, ALA, glutathione, etc.), foods the child is allergic to are eliminated and any infectious issues are being dealt with (such as yeast, viral load, Lyme, Mycobacterium, etc.) then hyperbaric therapy can commence. Hyperbaric therapy is not a substitute for a comprehensive bio-medical intervention strategy, and again alone it is not a cure, but it can be an important addition to the overall treatment plan. Hyperbaric therapy is perhaps the safest procedure in medicine at the pressures used to treat brain injuries. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is prescribed by a physician based on that patient’s need. Typically for Autism Spectrum issues combined with other co-morbid medical conditions therapies are typically prescribed in 1-hour increments once full pressure is obtained. Treatment length varies by case. Typically, treatments are between 20 – 80 separate appointments. Hyperbaric oxygen therapies are more efficacious to be performed in sequential days. Doctors will work with patients to evaluate individual needs and come up with a treatment plan. Each treatment plan varies. This therapy could be prescribed in groups. For example, a doctor may prescribe three separate 20 treatment sessions as part of a treatment plan. Please check with your doctor for additional details.
