Yay, UC DAVIS MIND Institute! I <3 you.

Of course, this is not news to us biomed families but if just one thing could bring us some vindication for being called whack jobs, HERE IT IS. This is where we need to be looking to see why biomed helps some and not others. This is where we need to be looking to figure out where to start with our kids, who should start where in biomed and how it should be done. This is where we start looking to come up with an actual diagnostic effort and  protocols for mainstream acceptance. This is where we stop guessing and start proving.

Does anyone else find it telling that it’s an article from Australia and not the US?

US researchers’ discovery promises answers on autism

RESEARCHERS have for the first time identified two biologically different strains of autism in a major breakthrough being compared with the discovery of different forms of cancer in the 1960s.

Read the full article here.

After you read the article, come back and tell me in the comments what kind of autism you suspect/know your child has.

My son has immune and hormone dysfunction. It’s likely the hormone dysfunction is a result of the immune dysfunction but hey, that might be digging a bit too deep for the uninitiated. Let’s keep it simple for now.

What about you?

      Most parents that have been doing biomed for a while know because it’s based on what things have helped and what hasn’t. In my son, antivirals/antifungals/hormones play a huge role in his recovery. For others, it’s diet, or any number of things. So my advice is, if you don’t know then the best thing to do is start researching biomed. Start researching DAN (Defeat Autism Now) and doctors and online lists. Start learning how to treat autism – the things mainstream medicine and your pediatrician aren’t going to tell you. You can start by clicking on the categories on the right hand side. 🙂

    Woot Woot!!! Immune dysfunction has been a significant part of our issue. Please tell me how to find our more about hormone dysfunction. We have spent so long on all of the other supportive work that I have missed this one. THANKS!!!!!!!!

      A DAN can pull hormones for you. What I’ve learned, though, is that if one hormone is messed up, odds are good that all of them are. For instance, if thyroid is off, then adrenals are probably off and probably testosterone and progesterone, and so on. It’s a never ending cycle of crap that’s off. (Thanks, Hep B!)
