MTHFR mutations are becoming more popular to analyze and treat. It is one of the most common genetic mutations, affecting approximately 50% of the population. MTHFR mutations contribute to serotonin and dopamine deficiencies, increasing the risk of mood and sensory issues, along with sleep problems. Get tested and treated!

I see undiagnosed thyroid problems in young children pass through my office every day. Any child who is overweight or tired (kids should not be tired) or chronically constipated should be evaluated for hypothyroidism and iodine deficiency. Standard thyroid tests (TSH) are not enough and a complete thyroid blood panel including total T3/T4, thyroid antibodies, and iodine levels should be performed to achieve a complete understanding of thyroid function. In addition, every child with Down Syndrome will have hypothyroidism and should be treated as early as possible, even as an infant.

There are so many wonderful non-pharmaceutical treatments to help children focus and concentrate. The problem with our system is that there are no objective tests for ADHD, just a frustrated school teacher and a parent survey. Children with anxiety, hyperactivity, lack of focus, and lack of motivation all get lumped into one diagnosis and get thrown stimulants that stunt their growth for life. Other answers exist! Try those with or without pharmaceuticals.

I have a friend who is a scientist that tests drugs for Alzhemier’s disease. As with all drug research, they experiment on animals, mostly mice. Do you have any idea how they find mice with Alzhemier’s? Well, they have to give the animals the brain damage and they do this by injecting them with aluminum. The same aluminum that is in your child’s vaccines.
Aluminum causes brain damage. It causes dementia. It causes problems with memory and learning. How do we know this? Because patients with kidney problems who are on dialysis, if they ever ingest any aluminum they get instant dementia.
Wait a minute, you say. If we know aluminum causes brain damage, because when we give it to humans and animals it causes damage to the brain, why is it in vaccines? Didn’t anyone do any safety research on what we are injecting into our children? Sadly, the answer is no. No safety research has been performed on the ingredients of the vaccines being injected into your child.
Does aluminum really cause autism? It actually might. Some research studies have been published to connect aluminum injection and developmental delays. Your doctor probably will always claim vaccines are wonderful and necessary, and there are no possible side effects ever to anyone in the world… but we all know that is a lie. There are always side effects to someone.
I’m not saying vaccines are bad. I’m saying aluminum is bad. I’m saying that there is a safe level that our bodies can handle. I’m suggesting that if you choose to vaccinate, choose low aluminum or zero-aluminum vaccines. Ask your doctor. There are many brands of vaccines made by many different companies. You are the consumer and it is your child’s health.
Want to read more? Google the CDC’s Toxicology Profile on Aluminum. You will read that the safety of aluminum is assumed, and no tests have been performed on children for safe levels. Until you know something is safe, why are you giving it to your child?

Non-organic rice products have high levels of toxic arsenic. Organic rice products contain non-toxic, naturally present arsenic that is not harmful. Simple urine tests can measure the levels of toxic (inorganic) versus safe (organic) arsenic levels.

We had a great time when NBC came out to our natural autism clinic a couple years ago. We have dedicated our lives to helping children achieve their full potential and our new office.

Many children with tics that worsen during colds are undiagnosed for PANDAS. This condition is also known as Syndenham’s Chorea or St. Vitus Dance, and sadly, ignored by most neurologists. If your child has tics or seizures that worsen during a sore throat or other cold, have them evaluated by a neurologist that specializes in PANDAS.
