Autism Spectrum Disorder Can be Treated Through Natural Methods With Fantastic Results
Autism Spectrum Disorder has increased over 78% in the last decade!
Something is happening in our environment that is leading to this huge increase in the prevalence of autism. Some people say that it’s just because of the larger population. If that were true the number would be higher but not the rate. The percentage of kids with this disorder has almost doubled in the last decade. Scary if you ask me.
YOU will have to deal with the ramifications of that diagnosis, behavioral issues, and healthcare costs that go along with that. We all love our children no matter what, but no one wants their child to have this (or any other condition).
Some Sobering Facts About the Rate of
Autism Spectrum Disorders
Prevalence in the United States is estimated at 1 in 59 births. (CDC, 2018)
More than 3.5 million Americans live with an autism spectrum disorder. (Buescher et al., 2014)
Prevalence of autism in U.S. children increased by 119.4 percent from 2000 (1 in 150) to 2010 (1 in 68). (CDC, 2014)
Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability. (CDC, 2008)
Prevalence has increased by 6-15 percent each year from 2002 to 2010. (Based on biennial numbers from the CDC)
Autism services cost U.S. citizens $236-262 billion annually. (Buescher et al., 2014)
A majority of costs in the U.S. are in adult services – $175-196 billion, compared to $61-66 billion for children. (Buescher et al., 2014)
Here is one of the most hopeful pieces of information taken directly from the autism societies website:
Cost of lifelong care can be reduced by 2/3 with
early diagnosis and intervention.
Translation… There are effective natural means of helping
autism spectrum disorders.
We see dozens of adult patients with autism and parents of children with autism every year with fantastic results. For severe cases many patients are able to get back to a more normal way of life.
Why has there been a huge increase in the rate of autism in the last decade?
Why will 1 in 50 kids be diagnosed with this disease this year?
Why is the rate of incidence increasing 5-10% every year?
We take a multi faceted approach to health and will often address many different aspects of ones health.
Some of the most common causes or contributors that many scholars and studies have pointed to at causing or contributing to autism range greatly.
In our office the most common areas that we find can be helpful if we address them are, food allergies, vaccines and related toxicity (yes, I said it. Vaccines are toxic, just look at the ingredients), Vitamin D deficiency, prenatal deficiencies and exposures, impaired genetics (methylation), detoxification, and neurotransmitter balance.
Most disease and illnesses we deal with in our office are not simply the effect of one area of imbalance. All these different factors interact with each other and cause, contribute or worsen certain conditions.
By testing the body and its functional capacity, looking at certain genetic markers, and combining those “clues” we can determine what areas of the body may be out of balance and what we can do to restore balance and health to the body.
