Left untreated, autism inhibits a child’s development growth to such a one million people in the U.S. today have autism or some form of pervasive developmental disorder. There are hardly any human diseases or conditions in which allergic factors are not involved directly or indirectly. Autism is not any different. Clinic trial shows that over 80% of autism individuals are suffering from allergies.

A. Brain Volume

Research shows children with ADHD or Autism the brain volumes are 3-4% smaller in all areas of the brain than normal children in the same age.

B. Brain Waves

(1) Beta waves(high voltage), when awake and alert.

(2)Theta waves(low voltage), when asleep or daydreaming.
in ADHD or Autism person, parts of the brain has theta waves when they are awake.

 C. “Lack” of Normal Neurotransmitters (5 types)

(1) Dopamine: when deficient or over-used, person becomes hard to pay attention.

(2) Opioids: when deficient, person experiences a sense of urgency.

(3) Gamma amino butyric  acid or GABA: when deficient, person feels anxiety.

(4) Norepinephrine : when deficient, person has a good “rush” feeling.

(5) Serotonin: when deficient, person has difficult to sleep and feels depression.

D. “Lack” of Vitamins and Nutrients or Can Not Use Them

(1) “B” vitamins: help to form neurotransmitters
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxal phosphate), pivotal in the synthesis of serotonin, dopamine      and GABA.
Vitamin B5 ( Calcium pantothennate), necessary for the oxidation of fatty acids and carbohydrates for energy. Important to the synthesis of cholesterol, ketones, steroids, hormones, fatty acids, phospholipids and amino acids. Help in preventing depression.
(2) Calcium: Help to build strong bones, teeth, muscle tissue; regulate heart beat, muscle action, nerve function and blood clotting.
(3) 5-HTP ( Tryptophan), An essential amino acid that can not be manufactured by the body. It combats stress, depression, insomnia, and aids in weight control.
(4) Zinc: studies point to an association between zinc deficiency and the symptoms of ADD-ADHD.
(4) Tyrosine: An amino acid that the body uses to synthesize dopamine and norepinephrine. Some studies haven shown that the children with ADD-ADHD may have lower levels of tyrosine.
(5) Magnesium: it is a must-have element, the diets of all Americans are likely to be deficient in magnesium. Even a mild deficiency causes sensitivity to noise, nervousness, irritability, mental depression, confusion, twitching, trembling, apprehension, insomnia, muscle weakness and cramps in the toes, feet, or fingers.
(7) Glucose: A study conducted by the National Institute of Mental Health showed that the rate at which the brain uses glucose, its main energy source, is lower in subjects with ADHD than subjects without ADHD.
