Natural ways to treat thyroid dysfunction and improve the life of Autistic children

natural ways to improve the life of autistic children!

Thyroid dysfunction is frequently found in children with autism. A recent research suggested that the reason for that is because autistic children have a higher expression of Frα (Folate receptor α), during the early prenatal period, although expression decreases significantly in later gestation and postnatal thyroid tissue. The high expression of FRα in the early foetal thyroid, suggests that foetal and neonatal exposure to maternal FRααs could affect the development of the thyroid and may contribute to the pathology in autism. But, there are natural ways to treat thyroid dysfunction and improve the life of Autistic children.

Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation improves working memory and symptoms of Autism and ADHD, say scientists.

transcranial Direct Current Stimulation improves biomarkers in Autism and ADHD

Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) method has been found to improve cognitive skills like working memory, sensory processing and behavioural traits related to autism and ADHD ( Attention deficit-Hyperactivity disorder).

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) restores cognitive function in people with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Hyperbaric chamber improves cognitive function, reveals new research

A double blind controlled trial of children aged 2-7 in the Autism Spectrum Disorder, has brought new hope for people with ASD. The 62 children involved in this trial underwent 40 sessions of Hyperbaric therapy, and it was found that “Children with autism who received hyperbaric treatment at 1.3 ATM and 24% oxygen for 40 hourly sessions had significant improvements in overall functioning, receptive language, social interaction, eye contact, and sensory/cognitive awareness compared to children who received slightly pressurized room air.”

Mercury to blame for sharp rise in Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis

Autism a neurological disorder

The theory that Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is only caused by a genetic defect, has been blown out of the water, with recent studies suggesting that ASD symptoms are caused by neurological damage, likely induced by an inflammatory process, triggered by high levels of mercury in the body.
