Increasingly, research suggests that many autistic traits, including withdrawal, eye-contact avoidance and perseverative behaviors, may be attributed to toxic exposure, inabilities to digest certain food proteins and compromised immune systems. Countless parents and professionals have reported improvements in behavior, social relatedness, language use and cognition upon implementing biomedical and nutritional interventions. But understanding these vast and complex protocols can be intimidating.
Parents, therapists, educators and health care providers are invited to participate in this comprehensive lecture series and discover why biomedical interventions work and ways to successfully implement them. Participants will be asked to keep a “biomedical journal” to track their weekly successes and challenges.
Module 1 (July 3) – Getting Started: Outline individual goals for the series. Learn how to begin implementing a biomedical protocol and get information about different laboratory tests and ways to check for heavy metal toxicity, yeast and bacteria overgrowth, allergies and digestive problems.
Module 2 (July 10) – Specialized Diets: Learn the why and how of implementing specialized diets including gluten- and casein- free, specific carbohydrate and low- phenol, sugar and oxalates. Discuss practical tips for shopping, cooking, eating out and special occasions.
Module 3 (July 17) – Vitamins and Supplements: Discover the benefits of using vitamins and natural supplements such as probiotics, enzymes, electrolytes and fatty acids to address common problems including acid reflux, yeast overgrowth, viruses and weakened immune systems. Learn about the role of homeopathy as a natural alternative to ailments.
Module 4 (July 24) – Detoxifying the Body and Environment: Learn about natural and medically prescribed options for removing toxic metals from the body, as well as natural ways to rid the home of toxins.
Module 5 (July 31) – Applying the Principles: Review and discuss individual goals and progress. Participants who attended all 5 modules will create a specifically tailored strategy to implement a healthier lifestyle to heal, rejuvenate and rebalance their child’s body.
