Autism & Aspergers

What Holistic or Natural Approach I would Take if My Child was Diagnosed with Autism or Aspergers

by Thomas Martin

Here is what I would do if my child was diagnosed with Autism or Aspergers.   These steps have been proven effective in minimizing the effects of both syndromes.  This definitely is not as easy as taking a pill, but the results are worth it.  First of all, I will not give my child any vaccines.  The levels of mercury and aluminum in all vaccines are so high (for example, 200 parts per billion of mercury is considered hazardous waste.  Vaccines often contain levels of 50,000 parts per billion.  The levels of aluminum are also dangerous).  Both are known neuro-toxins.  Regardless of how you feel about vaccines, the level of toxic metals in vaccines cannot be denied.  If I decided to go forward with vaccines, I would never allow more than one vaccine to be given at a time.  There would have to be at least a period of one month between each vaccine. 

The very first thing I will do for my child is to
    • I will make fermented vegetables and feed my child about 1/3 cup daily.  My child's gut flora is likely out of balance. 

    •  I will add Cod Liver Oil, daily to my child's diet.  The sooner you start your child on this protocol, the more effective it will be. 

    • I will give my child no sugar
    • I will begin a juicing program, starting with one large glass of juice each day and increasing to two as my body detoxifies.  I will make my juice especially rich in green leafy vegetables such as kale and spinach.   I will follow the guidelines laid out in my book Just Do This One Thing: A Guide to  Chronic Good Health
    • I will eliminate all Wheat, Corn and Soy from my child's diet and eat no gluten.
    • I will add virgin, organic, cold-pressed coconut oil, about 2 ounces, to my child's diet daily.

I will also eliminate the following toxins from my child's life:

Fluoride – buy and use a non-fluoridated toothpaste.  Tom’s of Maine and Desert Essence make several.  Fluoride is an industrial waste poison which has never been shown to reduce or prevent tooth decay.
Mercury – have all mercury amalgam fillings removed from your mouth by a dentist especially trained in this.   The amalgam bleed mercury into you system for decades following the implant.  Also avoid all vaccines (including flu shots) for they also contain mercury which is used as a preservative. 

Lead - check for lead warnings on bottles of balsamic vinegar.
Aluminum – Aluminum is most frequently found in antiperspirants.  Begin using a deodorant which does not contain aluminum.  Tom of Maine’s also makes these types of products.  Also get rid of all aluminum cooking pans as the aluminum leeches into the food as it cooks.

DISCLAIMER:  I am in no way recommending treatments or cures on this blog.  This blog is merely a compilation of what I have learned about a diet based, natural approach to health. I follow the steps I outline in my book Just Do This One Thing: A Guide To Chronic Good Health and know I will avoid almost every disease listed in this blog.  On the other hand, I needed a place to write steps for specific ailments as I came across them.  If you are looking for alternative therapies, I hope you can benefit from my research, especially if your doctor has told you "nothing more can be done for you."
