It is listed as being in a number of forms (Asperger Syndrome, Rett Syndrome, PDD-NOS, Kanner’s Syndrome and CDD) and the impairments associated are common to all of them: these impairments are difficulty in communication, difficulty while interacting with other people and having difficulty with social imaginations and empathy. Learning problems, sensitivity related to sensor and finally the problems in dealing with change have also been linked to autism, if not all forms of it.
Traditionally, attempts to combat autism in children address the symptoms and behaviors associated with the disorder; drugs, behavior therapy, physical therapy, and speech or language therapy have all been used in this way. But even though these treatments can prove excellent at improving the child’s standard of living and avoiding symptoms, at the end of the day it can only serve to camouflage the symptoms.
But biomedical treatments – modern autism treatments – are specifically aimed at vanquishing the major cause which triggers the disorder in the first place. An example may be the administration of nutritional supplements if a child is seen to have a nutritional deficiency.
Bryan Jepson MD, author of Changing the Course of Autism, lists the range of alternative biomedical treatments which can be a help for autism as: hyperbaric oxygen therapy, chelation, diet consideration, vitamins and supplements, gut treatments, and environmental alteration. Physicians and therapists across the world are using these treatments as part of the campaign DAN! i.e. Defeat Autism Now!, and obtaining dramatic results. This is indeed evident in the case of McCarthy’s son after he took up the GFCF diet, while people think that if it were not for hyperbolic oxygen therapy, Grace Kenitz would be dead by now.
With autism being listed as the kind of disorder that it is listed as, some may be surprised that biomedicine can be that promising in the fight against it. But the truth is that there has been an increasing load of evidence that, at least for certain people with autism, their disease has connections with lots of physical problems; including immune system disorders, among them autoimmunity, where one’s own immune system causes detriment to his or her own body tissue, with the undesirable results of destruction and localized inflammation. Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis are all listed as autoimmune diseases.
Indeed, there have been investigations into the link between the Blood-Brain-Barrier and autism. With considerable focus on the two important factors of the BBB that is astroglia and microglia glial cells, a study conducted by Vargas l. from the Neurology Department at University of John Hopkins titled “Neuroglial Activation dealing with Neuroinflammation in Brain of Patents with Autism” (dated 2005) showed that ASD patients aged 5 to 44 showed considerably higher levels of several factors of immune in relation to inflammation induced by microglia.
