Biomedical Autism Treatment – Respen-A blended chord, Inositol and Autism part 1

Posted on 31 July 2011 by admin

This is part 1 of a 2 part series on Respen-A blended chord and inositol. With respects to Respen-A, there has been a lot of discussion about the new blended chord, or the blended chord version of Respen-A. The Respen-A originally is now the blended chord which has two different ingredients. There is the Reserpine which has been there all along to help boost and bolster the Monoamine Oxidase A activity and the active metabolite which helps to, not nullify but inhibit and neutralize the excess Monoamine Oxidase B activity that can occur and that creates the imbalances in serotonin, etc.

One of the things that has been recommended in the past to help boost the release of some of the stored serotonin to keep things in a more steady state was a little bit of gluten. Now we know the gluten free diet has been a steady, safe remedy now in the Autism community for many many years and there’s a tremendous amount of children who have benefited from the gluten and casein free diet. And so there are still some kids who just really can’t tolerate gluten at all.

What has been discovered is that a supplement called inositol can be useful and often can be used in place of needing a little bit of gluten with the Respen-A. What has happened is that the recommendation has really converted over now to using a small amount of inositol in the morning with the Respen-A, 300, 350, 400 or 500 or so mg of inositol, every kid is going to be a little bit different. But on average about 500 mg of inositol in the morning seems to be enough to help with the steady state release of serotonin so that it can be acted upon by the Monoamine Oxidase A, converted into its active aldehyde form to have the physiological effect that we are looking for with respects to Respen-A, which is attention, focusing, greater awareness, kids being more social, language development, etc. The next part will cover more about inositol’s role in this new Respen-A formulation.

Biomedical Autism Treatment – Cerebral Folate Deficiency and Autism

Posted on 25 July 2011 by admin

Let’s talk about folate, folinic acid, the new information that is really coming out recently about cerebral folate deficiency in Autism. Cerebral folate deficiency has been a known medical entity now for many, many years. Kids tend to have poor growth, tend to have nervous system problems, speech problems, comprehension issues, attention problems, many times kids their heads stop growing normally at an early age, etc. And what has been discovered with these kids who have these problems, when they do research, what are called antibody testing, they find out there are immune folate reactions occurring to the folate transport receptors.

Now in order to get folate, most people think of folate like folic acid, but in order to get folate taken into the brain where it needs to be utilized as a nutrient for brain growth, etc., it needs to be transported across the brain from the blood, the brain in the cerebral spinal fluid and into the brain tissue to be utilized correctly. If we have antibodies that are blocking those receptors then we are going to have a problem where the blood levels of folate may go up but the cerebral spinal fluid levels goes down and then we start to have corresponding problems with folate deficiency.

There has been research testing that has shown, and is showing, that a number of kids on the Autism spectrum are showing up with these folate receptor or folate transport receptor antibodies. And I have done some testing in my office and have seen that same trend. Dr. Rossignol and Dr. Frye, two biomedical physicians and researchers in the biomedical field now have been looking at this for quite some time and are finding that when kids are given high dose folinic acid, more than what you would get from a regular supplement, this would be something that would have to be compounded, there are prescription doses of folinic acid. And kids are actually improving quite significantly with respects to speech, with respects to general awareness and attention and focusing, etc. This is very exciting information because some of these kids they have done a lot of different types of biomedical therapy but just overall they just haven’t responded the way that was originally anticipated.

I would like you to do a little more research into this. Look at cerebral folate deficiency, Autism and you will come across a lot of information from Dr. Frye and Dr. Rossignol. I think this will be worthwhile for you to look at. I also have information through my member forum, the parent forum, of the AutismActionPlan.com website and I am available for questions regarding this and other therapies as well through that forum on a daily basis.

Biomedical Treatment – The Mother Cub Show and Autism

Posted on 18 July 2011 by admin

I wanted to introduce you to Susan Lynn Perry. Susan is a mother of a child with Autism and she has been hosting a radio program now, something called the Mother Cub show and you can find out more information if you go to her blogsite at mothercub.com. She has also has a cook book, she’s written a number of other books as well, useful articles. And I am a biomedical specialist guest that comes on her show once a month, generally the last Wednesday of every month. We have a discussion about biomedical intervention, whether it is yeast problems or gut problems or supplements, we’ve talked about biofilms, we’ve talked about heavy metal toxicity and testing, chelation therapy and a host of other topics. Susan is great and the information she provides, not only when I am on the segment or on her show, but other guests that she has as well, I think you will find it very, very useful. So again find out about her show, it is called the Mother Cub show. Go to her website at mothercub.com, sign up as a guest, check out the show, it occurs once a well, I think you will find it very helpful.
