Autism Treatment – Respen-A, Supplement Avoidance and Autism

Posted on 25 January 2011 by admin

In part 2 of this 2 part series on autism treatment using Respen-A, we will discuss other recommended supplements to stop while using Respen-A. There’s also been a discussion about high dose antioxidants. Again, another issue is a lot of kids on the Autism spectrum have, they’re just too much oxidative stress going on, so they’re on a lot of supplements. But there’s always that potential whenever a child is on a lot of supplements, a lot of antioxidants, that they may be getting too much and it’s hard to know sometimes it’s very difficult for a doctor to absolutely know how much supplement any one child needs, even the testing sometimes is inconclusive. So the rule of thumb with Respen-A autism treatment has been, if at all possible, is try and reduce the amount of supplements your kids are on just so we initially before starting so we can really try to get a true read on how well this therapy is working and then it can be adjusted later, it can always be added back later.

Autism Treatment With Respen-A

Because it has been found that too many antioxidants may have somewhat of an inhibiting effect. It’s not that these supplements have a toxic effect, but they just seem to inhibit some of the positive benefit that we see with Respen-A. High dose vitamin D is something that is quite popular in the Autism community clearly there’s a number of kids that seem to show deficits in vitamin D, and there’s been some discussion about modifying the vitamin D dosing because of the Respen-A therapy as well as a few other supplements like B6 or GABA or whatnot. The main one that I have seen in my practice clinically, that I can really with confidence say that I feel has inhibited the positive, the early benefits of Respen-A have been the essential fatty acid supplements and so when I start a child off on this form of autism treatment, I really check to make sure if they’re on it and we try to wean them off or get them off it at least three weeks prior to starting the autism treatment.

Respen-A Could be the Autism Treatment For You

Like I mentioned before, it takes about three weeks to see some of the positive influence of being off that supplement and seeing the positive influence of the Respen-A. So, again, there’s always more to learn and as a parent or if you’re a physician watching this, I really encourage you to study this to research this more. As I mentioned in the last video, there is a Facebook page now that is available for Respen-A that you can post questions to and I also have a tremendous amount of information on my membership site at www.AutismActionPlan.com and that’s a place that you can reach me as well and ask questions with respect to more things regarding my clinical experience in using this autism treatment.
