Autism Treatment – Respen-A and Autism

Posted on 13 December 2010 by admin

As I mentioned before in the previous video, I have been using Respen-A therapy in autism treatment for approximately a year. As I mentioned this video is being recorded in October 2010 and I will continue to use this treatment in my practice because I have found it to be very helpful for kids on the Autism spectrum. Like any autism treatment, it is not a panacea, it is not a magic pill, it is not a cure but it is helpful for a good portion of kids a good upwards of 70% maybe even 80% seem to respond quite positively to this treatment.

I have had a few kids in autism treatment who didn’t respond and I have had some kids who reacted negatively to it. It is nothing serious, it usually has to do with irritability, sometimes becoming emotional, hyperactivity, sometimes this is to be expected with any type of new treatment. There really hasn’t been anything negative more than what we’ve seen sometimes with other treatments. No treatment is 100% side effect free but in general biomedical treatments whether you are talking about diet, supplements, Respen-A, B-12 are well tolerated by the vast majority of kids, are not toxic and are not dangerous in autism treatment.

Better Understanding of Respen-A Videos for Autism Treatment

Now just to set the record straight, I am talking to you through these videos as a physician who has been working in the Autism community now for well over a decade. I have done many, many different types of autism treatments and have been around for quite some time and quite experienced with biomedical intervention. I do not receive any financial compensation on Respen-A, I have no financial interest in Respen-A, the people involved in Respen-A haven’t asked me to do these videos. Because I do these videos as an educational format, not only through the blog site, but also posted on YouTube and Vimeo and other video outlets on the internet, this is a way for me to give back to the Autism community just so that you as a parent can get a better understanding of what some of these treatments are about, particularly Respen-A in this case, and hopefully dispel some of the negative press that this treatment has gotten. Because in most respects here I do really feel it is unwarranted and it really has to do with I think people just don’t understand what this treatment does and what it’s about and really understand how it works. So we’ll just move forward at that point but I just wanted to make it clear that I have no vested financial interest, I am not getting commissions or kick backs or any sort of that with respects to me discussing or using this treatment in my practice.

Autism Treatment – Respen-A and Autism

Posted on 12 December 2010 by admin

This is going to be a series of videos with respects with my experience in autism treatment with the therapy called Respen-A. Now Respen-A I have been using in my practice for approximately one year now. We are in October of 2010 so around this time last year is when I first started using Respen-A for a number of kids on the Autism spectrum in hopes that it would help with speech, socialization, awareness, less self stimulatory behavior, less sensory issues, etc. In that time I have actually garnered quite a bit of experience in using this treatment, there’s always more to learn. But I have been very pleased with what I have seen over this past year as far as the clinical benefits of this Autism treatment.

Most Benefited in Autism Treatment Using Respen-A

And just like I have mentioned, from the speech standpoint, from the socialization standpoint, from a focusing and attention standpoint, from a self stimulatory standpoint it has been very favorable. The two main areas that I feel have been helped the most are speech as well as socialization. Now speech means that kids have become more verbal and their language has become more complex. As some parents have described to me, their kids’ speech has become more purposeful, has become more specific, more deliberate. And then the socialization aspect is kids just become more aware of children around them, more interested in interacting and happier to do so. Mood has also been improved with this therapy as well.

Percentage Rate of some Types of Autism Treatment

So from my experience, I can’t account for anybody else, other doctors, whatnot within the biomedical community, but from my experience this has been a very, very helpful therapy. I will continue to use it in my practice as one of the primary things I have done because I have seen it be helpful for so many kids. I would say at this point, from an approximation standpoint, or excuse me from a percentages standpoint we are talking a good 70% – 75% upwards of maybe 80% positive response rate. From the biomedical standpoint that is pretty good. If you are looking at the gluten and casein free diet which generally has about a 60% positive response rate, methyl B-12 which is certainly very high, in many cases upwards of 90% – 94% positive response rate, treating yeast which is certainly very high and other types of nutritional supplementations to round out that basic format if you will, those foundational remedies for biomedicine. In my estimation Respen-A falls within one of the higher ranking therapies so far that I have been using now and have seen over the past number of years. So in subsequent sections of this video series I am going to be talking a little bit more about Respen, Reserpine and some of the controversies that have been circulating about this autism treatment therapy. Go to some of the other videos about autism treatment and hopefully I will be able to answer some of your questions that you may have about this important treatment.
