A Parent's Survival Guide to Biomedical Therapy in Autism Spectrum Disorders: Part 2 Recognizing Medical Disease in Your Child

Modern psychiatry would like us to believe that autism is a "behavioral" disease. As a follow up to last year's "Parent's Survival Guide" we would like to explore the recognition of "medical" disease in the spectrum child. The recognition of medical disease in our children is critical to understanding the role of biomedical therapies in their recovery. Topics will include gastrointestinal issues, immune dysfunction, seizures, neural inflammation, and the toxic child. The outline and slides for A Parent's Survival Guide-Part 1 are available on your conference CD but the only prerequisite for this year's discussion is an interest in the topic. After the presentation, the ARCH Medical Center staff will be available for extended Q & A on biomedical management.

Gregory Brown, MD is a board certified internist with 18 years experience in emergency medicine. He has received practitioner and advanced practitioner training from Defeat Autism Now! as well as ACAM instruction in chelation therapy and certification in hyperbaric medicine from UHMS. For the past four years he has served as medical director of the Autism Recovery and Comprehensive Health (ARCH) Medical Center and A & M Hyperbarics in Franklin, Wisconsin.

Vicki Martin RN is on staff at the ARCH Medical Center. She is the parent of a 14-year-old daughter with autism. Vicki has used the Defeat Autism Now! approach for over 13 years and specializes in helping parents negotiate the maze of available options to choose the most effective treatments. She is also certified in multiple educational interventions for autism spectrum disorders and is a strong advocate for all individuals with autism, especially those more severely affected.
