Restoring the Endocannabinoid System in Autism

Autism is a constellation of pathological process without a cohesive central mechanism or origin. Studies show that autism has multiple endocannabinoid deficiencies. Endocannabinoid dysfunction could explain the underlying defects and suggest new therapeutic strategies. We now have considerable evidence how the ECS is affected by a wide variety of herbs, drugs, environment and therapy. Multiple modalities may be needed to restore balance to the endocannabinoid system. We will discuss a comprehensive approach to restoring the dysfunctional ECS in autism to improve behavior, learning and health.
