Making the Biomedical Journey Easier for You and Your Child

Making the Biomedical Journey Easier for You and Your Child


Stuart Freedenfeld, MD, has decades of experience with the pediatric special needs population, especially with regard to autism, and has discerned efficient ways to assist.


In this hour, in a non-overwhelming way, he will touch upon everything that’s most important for parents to know, simple to complex, for the best biomedical journey. The emphasis will be on implementing a treatment program that takes into consideration respecting the preferences of the parents, the specific needs of the unique child, and the unique expertise(s) of the treating clinician. 


Topics touched upon will include:

·         Why what we do with diet and the gut has implications for the child’s immune system and, so, the nervous system (brain), and how this affects the behaviors and results parents and schools see.

·         Simple, workable, healthful, and inexpensive steps that can be implemented safely right away or in the near term.

·         Why other toxins and “bugs” in the child’s environment and body cause dysfunctions to health, behavior, and learning, and what might be done carefully with medical supervision to help.

·         Directions to look for help with more complex topics like mitochondrial dysfunction.

·         Directions for restoration of skills now possible due to restoration of health to the body and brain.
