What is Autism Spectrum Disorders?
 

Summary Comparison of Characteristics of Autism & Mercury Poisoning


Autism is a national health crisis and it touches almost every family in America. Autism is a neurological disorder characterized by different behaviors in different children. According to the current clinical statistics, some individuals with Autism are socially withdrawn, speech delayed, engaging in stereotypic, repetitive behaviors such as obsessive-compulsive behaviors. Other common symptoms are irritability, lack of eye contact or impaired visual fixation. Most autistic individuals have sound sensitivity and mild to moderate hearing loss along with touch aversion and poor concentration. In addition, most individuals within the Autism Spectrum have sleep difficulties as well as intestinal distress such as diarrhea, abnormal pain and discomfort or constipation. Incidentally all the above signs and symptoms are those associated to mercury toxicity. Although the American Pediatric Association has not found a link between a mercury preservative, Thimerosal, and the onset of Autism Disorder, some leading scientists in Heavy Metal Toxicity such as Boyd Haley, Ph.D. Department of Chemistry Chairman at the University of Kentucky, have clearly established the toxicity of vaccines containing 10K safe levels of Thimerosal preservative. For more information about the link between Thimerosal and Autism please review the article provided on this website by the National Vaccine Information Center. According to the medical community, the etiology (origins) of Autism remains unknown.
 
Why is the Special Needs Diet so important in treating symptoms of Autism?

It has been clinically proven that individuals within the Autism Spectrum Disorder are more susceptible to harm from infectious agents, toxic chemicals and some proteins in their diet such as grain protein, gluten, and dairy protein known as casein. Furthermore, autistic individuals suffer from lack of digestive enzymes, have nutritional deficiencies, poor diets due to sensory integration challenges, and genetic food intolerances such as lactose, gluten, or casein. Most autistic children improve in their language expression as well as other developmental areas after following the gluten-free, and casein-free diet for a minimum of 90 days. It is crucial that the diet be maintained for as long as possible if not for life as any reversal to the old lop-sided diet could cause a regression in terms of developmental progress.  In addition, some self-injurious behaviors or ADD-like behaviors seem to be associated to the presence of gluten and or casein or even food food allergens in the diet. For more information on the effects of food allergies and food intolerances on the behavior, please review the article posted under food allergies section.

Testimonials
  • My Physician had recommended I consult with Faye in 2006, but I did not make up my mind I needed to change my life to control my weight until mid 2007. I decided to take his advice and made an appointment. My goals were to get to my ideal weight by the end of 2008 and to improve my overall nutritional habits. While I am still working on both of those goals, I have had a few surprises along the way.

  • The first week or so on the diet we saw an incredible change. My son’s rages were fewer in number and less intense. Around the two week mark however, those rages peaked at an all time high. It was as though my son had turned into the incredible Hulk.

  • I just wanted to write and thank you for the huge role you’ve played in helping our boys already! As you know, we’re still sort of new on this journey, but we are so grateful that we were referred to you in the very beginning.
