Autism Spectrum Disorder

By October 1, 2012July 27th, 2017No Comments

1 in 150 children are now diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The Nardella Clinic offers comprehensive biomedical and naturopathic treatment for children and adults with this complex, chronic disease. Autism is a whole body disorder with specific characteristics. However, every individual with Autism has different specific requirements for support and achieving results. Comprehensive treatment of Autism by a naturopathic doctor involves addressing underlying processes in the body that are responsible for the symptoms of Autism. This includes:

  • Increased oxidative stress
  • Digestive disturbances
  • Neurological inflammation
  • Brain hypoperfusion
  • Neurotransmitter imbalances affecting mood, learning, speech and sleep
  • Immune dysregulation and allergies

Treatments that address these underlying causes include:

  • Nutrition and specific therapeutic diets,
  • Balancing and supporting neurotransmitters,
  • Supporting the immune system,
  • Identifying and treating allergies,
  • Treating digestive issues,
  • Neurological support,
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy,
  • Detoxification and chelation therapy,
  • Specific vitamins, minerals and antioxidants

Supporting the body and treating these imbalances has a profound effect on behavior and learning. Autism is a treatable disease when these treatments are used in conjunction with traditional treatments and therapies.
