Autism – Dietary Treatments (2013 update)
Posted on April 2, 2013

[image: autismrainbow] In 2002 I attended my first DAN! (Defeat Autism Now!) conference. Here in my hometown of Portland, Oregon, I sat in the back of a room filled with 1000 parents and about 100 physicians and providers, and I had tears rolling down my face as I realized we had poisoned a generation. My own children have been affected, to various degrees, by my own ignorance, and our unique genetic vulnerability. As parents we want the best for our children. We look to our society and governmental agencies and academies to protect us by having appropriate regulations. I am sad to report that the very institutions that you would think are there to protect us from environmental toxins and industry practices that would harm our children, are either turning a blind eye, or worse yet, are
infiltrated with industry funded experts who can tilt the agenda and distort the facts.

Autism is just the tip of the iceberg. For every autistic child there are hundreds with ADD, ADHD, anxiety, depression, developmental delays, hyper-sensitivities etc., all now epidemic and “unexplained”. The explanation is toxins, toxins, and more toxins. We are adding toxins to those who are genetically vulnerable (we all are vulnerable but some of us more than others). The toxins at the top of the list are Aspartame, tobacco, heavy metals, pesticides, BPA, (bisphenol found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins). The topic of this blog is not the causes but what you can do nutritionally once you are faced with autism or any neurological challenge.
~
The summary linked below outlines many areas that deserve a try if your child is suffering:
http://autism. asu.edu/Docs/ 2013/Summary_ of_Treatments_ for_Autism- 2013.pdf
~
*The keys in this summary are:*
~
1. *Eat healthy* (organic, no GMO, no plastics, no aspartame).
2. *Test for food sensitivities* and avoid foods your child is sensitive to (usually at least gluten and dairy).
3. Certain *vitamins* and nutrients are key. Everyone in North America needs more *Vitamin D*. See the list they provide for dietary requirements and aim for the upper limit.
4. *Omega-3* fish oil is beneficial.
5. *Enzymes* to help with digestion can be helpful.
6. *Carnitine* is a vitamin that help get energy into the cell. Most children can take 125-250 mg twice a day. Liquid forms may need a prescription.
7. *Melatonin* can help with the immune system, should generally be given before bed, and can help with sleep. Dosage is 1/2 to 3 mg before bed.
8. *Thyroid* function should be assessed. Low thyroid function is very detrimental to brain development and energy. Have them check *TSH, free T3 and free T4*.

Parents, it is absolutely up to you to keep good notes and records of what you try, when, and what you feel happened. As a physician who helps many families, I cannot possibly remember what I have tried on each child. You should keep pushing me, if I’m your doctor, or your physician if I am not, and say “this is what I have tried, this is what helped, what else can we try?”

Blessings, Dr. Paul

Plastic Dangers

Story at-a-glance
~ Today’s “throwaway society” has created mountains of plastic waste, including billions of bottles and bags that clog up landfills and take hundreds of years to break down, as this documentary shows
~ Twenty billion pounds of plastic is making its way into our oceans each year, where wave action turns them into a plastic soup; the five oceanic gyres each have massive whirlpools of trash in their cores, damaging sea life and marine ecosystems
~ Fish and other sea creatures are being contaminated with plastic, in and around their bodies; sea turtles mistake plastic bags for jellyfish (their favorite food), and albatrosses are found strangled to death by plastic six-pack rings; many species consume plastic “nurdles” and suffer dire consequences, including death
~ Chemicals from plastic waste harm living things all the way up the food chain, from plankton to humans; BPA and BPS disrupt embryonic development and are linked to heart disease and cancer; phthalates (such as the plasticizer DEHP) disturb gene expression;
~ Even more disturbing, a groundbreaking study suggests serious adverse health problems may be passed down multiple generations
~ Suggestion are given about how you can break your plastic addiction and reduce your own plastic footprint

Lymphatic System: Manmade Chemicals

Posted in CANCER, LYMPHATIC SYSTEM, PCOS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 9:28 pm by PCOSLady

PCOS Lady: I found this researching PCOS and the lymphatic system…
* IBS is also highly caused by parasites as well…
~ Ladies add this research finding to your breast cancer, etc… knowledge…
~ We all have our own opinions on the “cancer” topic…

Townsend Letter
April 1, 2009 by Yanick, Paul, Jr.
~
Breast cancer, the most frequent maligant disease in women, is caused by synthetic carcinogenic chemicals, or positive ionic poisons (PIPs). Discovered by the late UC Berkeley researcher Albert Krueger, MD, PIPs are synthetic chemicals with a positive ionic charge that are extremely hard to detoxify from the deeper lymphatic system. PIPs can be both carcinogenic and estrogenic and typically throw the female hormone system into chaos, leading to polycystic ovaries and fibrocystic breast disease.
*
They are found in everyday cosmetics, food, air, water, and pharmaceuticals, and leach out of the plastics used to package food, all of which have been strongly linked to carcinogensis.
*

While it is well known that carcinogens fuel carcinogenesis, research is scanty on the mechanisms underlying why and how PIPs are stored in the lymphatic and breast tissue and fail to be properly detoxified and excreted by the majority of today’s detoxification protocols. PIPs cripple the deeper lymphatic channels and the biliary networks of the liver, reducing bile production and increasing carcinogenic and estrogenic toxicity. Sadly, research is woefully deficient on PIP toxicity of the deep lymphatic channels in the development of female hormonal disorders and breast cancer.
~
In the October 1994 Townsend Letter, I stated: “The wellspring of the immunologic defense is the lymphatic system.” 33 In the 2001 issue, I started: “We have discovered that a high percentage of IBS sufferers have duodenitis, dysbiosis, stagnant lymph flow, and drainage in the deep lymph channels of the gut. …”[34] Could the widespread increase in breast disease be somehow related to stagnant lymph flow in the deep lymph channels of the gut? In a 2005 Nature article titled “Unlocking the Drains,” we read:
~
After centuries of playing second fiddle to the blood system, our
lymphatic circulation is coming into its own as a key player in
diseases ranging from cancer to ashthma. Once dismissed as a mere
drainage network, the body’s “second circulation” [lymphatic system]
is emerging as a crucial player in numerous diseases … and as a
vital part of the normal immune system. (35)
~
All body organs have deep lymphatic drainage functions. Ina alternative medicine, it is critical to consider both deep and superficial channels as integral parts of the lymphatic system. My medical collegues and I have spent over two decades using every sort of manual and electronic lymph drainage device on superficial lymphatic channels, with only minimal success. Since superficial channels converge to form bigger vessels feeding into the thoracic duct or the right lymphatic duct, clinical approaches should be aimed at restoring deep lymphatic drainage as a way to fully cleanse the body of PIPs.
~
At every level of our physiology, PIPs disrupt our symboises with nature, killing off beneficial commensal cells, so that genetic potential we have for cancer can be played out.

~ Breast Preservation Foundation … Founded by Suzanne Somers… The Breast Preservation Foundation’s (BPF) mission is to educate women about skin-sparing mastectomies and its advantages for an overall better cosmetic result. The BPF’s goal is to inform and empower women to ask more questions before having a potentially disfiguring biopsy, lumpectomy and traditional mastectomy. The BPF advocates that women insist their breast surgeon recognize the importance of preserving the breast which can improve their quality of life after receiving a breast cancer diagnosis. Stem cells will regrow your breast tissue!
