Spreading Autism Awareness Across the Neighborhood

Author: mom_to_one, 09 02nd, 2014

help your autistic child blog 1 9-02-14When my family moved into a home in a tight knit community, I was looking forward to being able to introduce the community to my family, but I was a bit nervous about how they’d react to my autistic son. Ever since my son was diagnosed with autism, I’ve had to advocate for him with everyone. I try to make them understand that he is not misbehaving, but dealing with a developmental disorder.

I plan to help spread autism awareness throughout my community by talking to all of the families individually and giving them important information about my son. I know that it is important for them to understand so that they know how to work with him if they encounter him around the neighborhood. Helping my neighbors understand autism will give my son a better environment to live in.

help your autistic child blog 2 8-25-14A recent study on autistic brains and normal brains lead to the discovery that autistic people appear to have too many synapses in their brains. These are the parts of the brain where connections are made and stimulus is received. Normal brains have less of them because the body natural destroys some of these connections as they become unnecessary.

The study also found that autistic people had an overactive protein that blocked the brain’s natural ability to destroy these extra synapses. This could explain why many autism symptoms exist. Researchers are currently looking at a medication to block this protein as a new treatment for autism. There are more tests that need to be done but this definitely looks promising.

It isn’t surprising that symptoms of autism come out more when kids aren’t feeling their best. Any sick child will act differently and sometimes behave in a way that is abnormal.

For autistic children who have problems with yeast imbalance and their stomach, going through a Candida cleanse can help. This won’t be the magical cure for autism that makes a child normal again, but it can make it so that autism symptoms are less extreme. More importantly it’ll keep the child feeling good which will give the child a higher quality of life.

Removing Toxins with PCA-Rx May Help Autistic Children

Author: mom_to_one, 08 21st, 2014

help your autistic child blog 2 8-18-14If you compare the symptoms of autism and the symptoms of certain types of heavy metal poisoning, it is easy to see where some of these symptoms line up really well. Some people speculate that autism may be caused by a similar type of poisoning or that people with autism may have a sensitivity to heavy metals that makes their symptoms worse.

Whatever the reason, many people have seen success with their autistic children when they dosed them with PCA-Rx, a formula that allows for natural toxin elimination in the body. This formula seems to make it so that autistic symptoms are minimized. Many of these children improve drastically when given the formula and make large developmental steps forward.

Insurance Coverage for Autism Therapy

Author: mom_to_one, 08 19th, 2014

help your autistic child blog 1 8-18-14When a child is diagnosed with autism, a parent’s primary focus should be on doing everything in their power to help that child live the best life possible. Of course in many states this may be quite difficult because the cost of treatment is high and insurance doesn’t cover everything. Getting a child the care that they need may cost families over 50,000 dollars a year.

If parents want to give their children access to autism therapy, they might have to shell out thousands of dollars just to get their child the treatment that they really deserve. It is shocking that there are still states dragging their feet when it comes to requiring insurance companies to provide coverage for this. Many parents turn to alternative remedies because they can’t afford traditional treatments.

Need to Find Something Better Than Chelation Therapy

Author: mom_to_one, 08 14th, 2014

help your autistic child blog 2 8-11-14When my nephew was diagnosed with autism, my sister and her husband immediately got him into behavioral therapy and started working with him to try to help him cope with this disorder. My nephew began making very slow progress in developmental steps. He eventually did learn to talk, but only once he was about five years old. It was very hard for his parents.

They started researching ways that they could possibly help their child outside of usual medical therapies. They read claims about chelation therapy and how it had been used on autistic children to their benefit. My sister wasn’t willing to have this done though since there were many risks. They found that Clathration was actually a safer and easier therapy for children to undergo and decided to try this.

Trying to Discover the True Causes of Autism

Author: mom_to_one, 08 12th, 2014

help your autsitic child blog 1 8-11-14In recent years, cases of autism have been rising more steadily. It appears that more and more children are diagnosable within the autism scale. Many researches have tried to account for the steep rise in cases. Some people wonder whether many autistic people just weren’t diagnosed in the past because there wasn’t very much awareness of the disorder.

Other people wonder if the true causes of autism lie in something that we didn’t start exposing children to until recently. Higher levels of pollution or chemicals in our diets might be causing children to become autistic. If researchers could discover a common cause for the disorder, than they might be able to actually make it so that autism could be prevented.

The Vaccination Debate Continues

Author: mom_to_one, 08 07th, 2014

help your autistic child blog 2 8-04-14When a child is born, parents are presented with information regarding vaccinating children and why they should get their children vaccinated. Since many doctors would rather push the idea of vaccines as a good thing then show parents a lot of negatives, they often skate over the risks, presenting them as extremely improbable and unlikely to occur.

However, a huge debate continues to rage over whether vaccination is right for every child. Some children can have adverse reactions and even suffer brain damage as a result of a vaccine. Autism may be caused by certain vaccines as well. It is very difficult to determine whether it is worth protecting children from diseases that have practically died out at a risk to their health.

help your autistic child blog 1 8-04-14When people started putting together symptoms of mercury poisoning and symptoms of autism and noticing similarities, they started looking for ways that autism could be caused by mercury. This led to a lot of paranoia about vaccination and the amount of mercury that was contained in them. Many parents stopped vaccinating children as a result.

However, though the effects of mercury poisoning may mirror autism, eliminating mercury from vaccines hasn’t resulted in a lower level of autism among children. This may mean that they’re being exposed to mercury in some other way or. They may be specifically susceptible to even low levels of mercury in their diets and the diets of their parents.

Is Autism Just Another Product of Vaccine Damage?

Author: mom_to_one, 07 31st, 2014

help your autistic child blog 2 7-28-14In order to protect our children, there are a lot of hard choices that we have to make for them. Some of the easiest decisions regard whether we want to let them cross a street on their own or pick out their own breakfast cereal. One of the harder decisions is whether or not to risk vaccination in order to protect them from disease. Though vaccines protect from deadly diseases, some children can have bad reactions to vaccines.

Some people believe that autism comes partially from vaccine damage caused by mercury levels that are present in a couple of childhood vaccines and won’t get children vaccinated because of this. It is likely that autism is created at least partially by a genetic predisposition and perhaps a bit by some outside sources like vaccines. Making the choice on whether to vaccinate or not is one that can’t be taken lightly.
