Find Helpful Treatment for Autism
First-ever Genetic Animal Model Of Autism
ScienceDaily (Dec. 9, 2007) — By introducing a gene mutation in mice, investigators have created what they believe to be the first accurate model of autism not associated with a broader neuropsychiatric syndrome, according to research presented at the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology annual meeting. This animal model could help researchers better understand abnormal brain function in autistic humans, which could help them identify and improve treatment strategies. Broader neuropsychiatric conditions include Fragile X, the most common cause of inherited mental impairment, and Rett Syndrome, a childhood neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by normal early development followed by slowed brain and head growth, seizures, and mental retardation.
Autism is a neuropsychiatric disorder characterized by repetitive behaviors and by impairment in social interactions and communication skills. These symptoms can coexist with either enhanced or decreased cognitive abilities and skills.
Autism is a perplexing disorder for which there is no standard and consistently-accepted treatment. Many autistic children are treated with traditionally-used chelation substances (like DMSA and DMPS) to counteract the abnormal effects of the disorder when heavy metal toxicity is suspected as a cause. However, PCA-Rx’s clathrating qualities have been found to work as well or even better against symptoms of autism in kids, without the side effects. PCA-Rx has also shown to be effective against symptoms of other EIs – such as angina, Crohn’s disease, Epstein-Barr virus, fibromyalgia and Parkinson’s disease, to name a few – also thought to be caused by toxic exposure.
It is thought that childhood autism could be triggered by vaccinations that young kids receive for measles/mumps/rubella (MMR) and, to a lesser degree, diphtheria (DPT). Specifically, it is thought that the measles component of the MMR vaccination and the pertussis (whooping cough) component of the DPT shot may be to blame. Most autistic children are normal and functioning well up until the time they receive their MMR and DPT vaccinations, which have been found to leave autism-triggering toxic residues in the body. PCA-Rx has proven to be a safe and effective weapon for finding and removing – through clathration – some of these harmful residues from the bodies of young autism sufferers. PCA-Rx’s additional ability to not remove any of the body’s natural minerals also results in an absence of the physiologically-stressful side effects common to other chelating drugs.
We have a lot of friends with Asperger’s children, especially in the Bay Area. Something the parents of these Asperger’s children tend to discover is the Asperger’s symptoms can be genetic, meaning the parents find out later in life that they may be suffering from Aspergers or autism as well. We’ve found that lots of parents also use your natural autism remedies and products to improve the quality of their own lives as well as their childrens.
It’s nice to find a product line that’s versatile enough to help parents, too. Although most of us with autistic children know it’s not a genetic disease it’s still comforting to know that such high qulity products exist when we need them. Your selection and prices make the perfect blend of accessibility, convenience and value. Thanks again!
