Tuesday, December 27th, 2016

I believe a combination of approaches is best in treating mental health disorders like autism, Asperger’s, ADHD and more. Below is some research on positive results looking at counseling as well as nutrition.

People struggle to envision inflammation as a big factor in : Autism. Research over the past 20 years state brain inflammation is involved in : Autism, Asperger’s syndrome, Alzheimer’s, Epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s and more. Millions of Americans are sensitive to gluten and are not aware of it. There is cases for linking gluten sensitivity to autism and Asperger’s syndrome. A ketogenic diet has shown positive results for Autism- Aspergers. Coconut oil is one example.

Lots of research states gluten sensitivity is created by elevation of antiboides in relation to the gliadin that is in gluten products worldwide. These antibodies combine w protein( a specific kind) and specific genes are turned on in a cellular body. Once these genes are switched on cytokine that is inflamed can attack the brain. Cytokines damage tissue and create disease. Elevation of cytokines are scene in autism and Asperger’s syndrome.

Individuals wonder if it is possible to prevent, cure, control, and naturally treat: ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, Autism, Asperger’s, Tourette’s syndrome, headaches and more when traditional medicine and Billions of Dollars are spent for each giant Pharmaceutical company in research and marketing. Many experts believe the answer is yes! An extremely strong yes is echoed by many experts and they believe in natural prevention (Diet, avoiding gluten, nutrition, exercise, counseling, CBT counseling, parenting, vitamins are vital and that as a society we must look at prevention vs treatment of the symptoms.

Symptoms of autism spectrum disorder can be identified as early as two years old. The research states that one in 88

children have a diagnosable autism spectrum disorder. Early intervention is very important to modify behaviors. Children

can be helped at all ages however the younger the child is that intervention begins the better the results according

to the early department of learning.

It is important to remember your child is not his Autism or Aspergers. Your child has many gifts and strengths and abilities and he or she and the family will have challenges, however, there is a lot of positive results in counseling and therapy as well. It is important to look at all areas in a child’s life to help them find desired balance and success. Children with Autism have many strengths and can overcome challenges and deficits with great support from family, loved ones, counseling, and more.

Cognitive behavioral therapy has shown great promise in helping children and teenagers with autism and aspergers.Behavior modification, Mindfulness, progressive relaxation, organizational skills, time management, talk and play therapy, parenting tips and more can create huge change with your child and family. I have seen it!!!!! Yes!

Many children and teens have been diagnosed with an autistic spectrum disorder or Aspergers syndrome. Many of the symptoms can be managed through behavioral therapy and counseling. A combination of family counseling and parenting combined with individual child counseling shows evidence in research for best results.
