If We’d Known Then What We Know Now: A Fresh Approach to Treating Root Causes of Autism

Autism is now understood to have a range of causes. However, consistently we see biochemical challenges, gut dysregulation, inflammation, and oxidative stress evaluation as keys to improvement and recovery. These neurodegenerative diseases present challenges in both diagnosis and treatment. They require early intervention to stave off further progression. For patients on the autism spectrum, our philosophy and therapeutic goal is to support mainstreaming of the patient to the point of recovery.
