Autism is about 4 times more common among boys than girls
Parents with one child with Autism have a 2% to 18% chance of having a second child who is also affected
The total costs per year for children with Autism in the U.S. is estimated between $11.5 billion and $60.9 billion* primarily due to costs from medical care to special education to lost parental productivity
In my experience as a medical doctor I find that there are many factors, when brought together, that can result in autism and autism-like disorders. It seems plausible to me that inflammation, and environmental factors can play as much of a role as genetics in not only the likelihood of developing Autism, but also the severity of symptoms.
What are available treatments?
Unfortunately, many medicines are used to treat Autism with no clear effect. In this article from Mayo Clinic, a synopsis of available treatment modalities are reviewed, yet many of these medicines have undesired side effects and fail to address any underlying causes.
Compass Cellular Healing takes a functional medicine-based approach to treating what can be the underlying results of Autism. Simply put, we use the way the body naturally functions to relieve and treat inflammation-in the brain and the rest of the body. Stem cell therapy, ozone therapy and nutritional optimization have been found to be effective in reducing the symptoms of Autism—all without negative side effects.
We encourage you to let us provide a thorough assessment of your child who may have been diagnosed with Autism. Or if you are an adult living with a diagnosis of Autsim or a related syndrome, you may also see exceptional results from treating underlying inflammation.
