Because a child with brain damage deserves a second chance at life
mini-ENCYCLOPEDIA: Nurodevelopmental Disabilities
Biomedical Rx of Autism Under Development
Neurodevelopmental Disabilities are a growing problem today.In spite of modern resusceptive techniques or may be because of it, the incidence of Neurodevelopmental Disabilities has remained the same (CP: 1 to 2 / 1000 live births) or Autism Spectrum (Up from 1 in 10,000 [VAERS Database of USA] to anything between 1 in 65 to 100 as per various authorities.
The expectations of modern parents is also much more [WAY TO GO!!!], and so are modern techniques to diagnose metabolic upsets, biomedical deficiencies or excesses, and circulatory malfunctions, that CAN be corrected with today's medical facilities. Most of them comprise balaced diet that the child can utilise without intollerances, allergy and other problems, supplemented by needed vitamins and minerals that the child lacks or reducing intake of these micronutrients when they are in excess of what the body can tolerate.
We are paying the price of modern industrialization. Chemical pollution of our food, water, air supply, toxic drugs and vaccines without adequate long term safety studies in neonates, are playing havoc with the growing child's metabolism at a time when the liver and kidney functions have not yet matured sufficiently to excrete the excess and unwanted chemicals and toxins from body.
The amount of preservative mercury or alluminium in ONE shot of a vaccine may indeed be very small, but when you add the full amount from the two dozen of more shots a child is given in the first two and very vulnerable years of life, as added to the vaccine by some manufacturers (not all), it is akin to poisoning the child.
The modern thinking seems to be to save the majority of children from infections and make life easy for the majority. In this scenario, if a small population of children become susceptible to brain damage due to these factors, it is collateral damage.
This may be one of the many reason why the incidence of Autism spectrum has now become about 1 in less than 100, affecting boys 4 times more than girls, and increasing the chances of the second child also having autism go from 1% (for 1st child) up to 10 to 20% for subsequent children, in affected families.
While Autism-specific Special Education by whatever name, Occupational Therapy that has a significant element of genuine Sensory Integration Therapy and Autism-specific Seech Therapy are and should remain the sheet-anchor of Rehabilitation Therapy, it is not the full answer.
How long would you grease the axles and replace the wheels with new tyres when the fault is in the Engine. If the car is not running due to a faulty engine, repair THAT. It is as simple as that. Please note that the word "NEURO-Developmental" starts with the word "NEURO" and not "SOMATO" = body. This part of the website tells you some of the many techniques to achieve "engine repair" or Regenerative Medical Therapies. Sections in the Autism chapters are soon to be edited and upgraded based on inputs received from training imparted by the MEDICAL ACADEMY of PEDIATRIC SPECIAL-NEEDS (MAPS) of USA . The menu in the left column gives what we have achieved in the last 20+ years. I sincerely hope it helps you to find the answer you seek.
