This presentation will address the main points that are helpful for an effective patient history and physical exam. This includes the parents naming the top 10 specific areas of concern. The more unique these concerns are to their child the more on target treatments will be. Dr. Kotsanis will also talk about what he looks for in the physical exam that gives him clues for further testing and treatment options. This will be followed by a discussion of supplementation with vitamins, herbs, homeopathics and minerals as well as clean alkaline water, clean air and minimizing environmental toxins. He will conclude with the prenatal health of the parents, genetics, epigenetics and nutrition aspects as well as political and financial issues and actions that can be taken proactively to position the child and the family safely for the future.

Constantine Kotsanis, MD is board certified in otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat) by the American Board of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery. He has practiced in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area of Texas for 27 years and for most of his career has been treating autism, learning and behavior disorders and lecturing internationally on this and other topics. The basic biomedical treatments for autism spectrum individuals evolved out of the original research "A Multidisciplinary Approach to Autism Treatment." This work was a collaborative effort with dietician/nutritionist Lyn Dart, while she was a masters candidate at Texas Women's University (She is now a professor in nutrition sciences at Texas Christian University), and Christopher Harjes, MS/CCC, a master-prepared audiologist when they worked together in the early and mid-90s. The work that was foundational to Dr. Kotsanis' efforts was done years before by pioneers such as Theron Randolph, MD, William Rea, MD, Doris Rapp, MD, William H. Philpott, MD and numerous other thought leaders in orthomolecular and environmental medicine and allergy and immunology. Many years ago Dr. Kotsanis realized that all chronic conditions share common ground. Thus he has incorporated nutritional treatments into his practice that address the neuro-endocrine-immune system pathways. Over the years that he has practiced metabolic medicine he has brought treatments to his patients from all over the world. He has also earned the designation of Certified Clinical Nutritionist (CCN) by examination. In addition to his surgery, allergy and nutrition credentials, Dr. Kotsanis has training in homeopathy, acupuncture, neural therapy, and other forms of energy medicine. His treatments now incorporate nutrition, homeopathy, oxidative and botanical medicine in addition to other methods.
