It shows the dramatic healing capacity of Vitamin D-3 on one of the most baffling epidemics of modern time – childhood Autism.

Dear Dr. Cannell:
At age 2.5 years, between December 2007 and January 2008, my son experienced a fairly dramatic onset of symptoms that led to his diagnosis of autism.
We took our son to see a number of specialists during the winter of 2008 including a neurologist (who diagnosed him with Asperger Syndrome), a psychologist (who diagnosed with autism), and a second psychologist who specialized in the treatment of autism (who diagnosed him with Pervasive Developmental Disorder Not-Otherwise-Specified). All three diagnoses are on the autism spectrum. He also began seeing an occupational therapist, a speech therapist, a behavioral specialist, and a DAN! (Defeat Autism Now!) doctor for dietary interventions.
We saw a dramatic improvement by April/May of that year. Nearly all the symptoms on the list above had resolved. We assumed the improvements were due to diet but he started to go into the sun around that time. Our son slept well and spent many peaceful, happy and anxiety-free months during the spring and summer after turning three. Continue reading “Autism Nightmare Overcome by Miraculous Vitamin D”
Claudia Morris from the Children’s Hospital and Research Center Oakland (CHRCO) and Marilyn Agin from the Saint Vincent Medical Center in New York recruited families with experiences of omega-3 fatty acid and vitamin E supplementation. The majority of families used doses of 800 IU of vitamin E, while the average omega-3 consumption was 280 to 840 mg DHA and 695 to 2,085mg EPA.
The ratios and dosages determined through the work with the study led to a patent for Dr Morris through the CHRCO (US patent # 2008/002216). Kate Bolton, VP of speech nutrients at NourishLife, told NutraIngredients:
“The results of the study are significant in that 97 percent of the participants with apraxia and/or on the autism spectrum reported dramatic improvements while taking a combination of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E.
The study represents the largest summary of children with apraxia to date, she added.
Antidotal evidence had previously shown that omega-3 can help children with apraxia and those known as ‘late talkers’. The researchers discovered that they symptoms presented by children with apraxia mirror those of vitamin E deficiency, said Bolton.
The addition of high dose vitamin E with omega-3 fatty acids is the breakthrough.” (my bold emphasis added)
For several years I have been helping children with autism make giant strides in their mental capacities. Autism is a frightening epidemic and getting worse by the moment.
The biggest thing that turns children around is an extraordinary discovery I made that the Russian’s used to super-boost their athletes for the Olympics. So too did the East Germans when they were at the forefront of Olympic performance and records.
Mislabeled for years as vitamin B-15, DMG is an effective energy booster, stamina-enhancer and cardiovascular-building nutrient, as it makes the process of metabolism in the body quicker and more efficient.
It is a super-oxygenation, metabolic enhancer that pumps tremendous fuel into the cells. DMG also promotes healthy neurotransmitter function, supporting the central nervous system glycine receptor, maintaining a healthy amino acid balance within the central nervous system.
Muhammad Ali even called it his “secret weapon” in becoming the heavyweight champion of the world.
Nearly 90% of children with autism are regularly prescribed anti-depressants as part of their overall treatment.
New research published this month in Archives of General Psychiatry, has found that the most prescribed drug to treat autism, Celexa, is nearly useless when compared to a placebo in children with autism, and the side effects are twice as bad.
The results of this nationwide trial have experts reconsidering the appropriateness of antidepressants overall, and other mind-altering drugs, used to treat children with autism spectrum disorders. Worldwide spending on drugs to treat autism is estimated to be between near $2.5 billion annually.
An estimated 1.5 million children in America have autism, a group of poorly understood developmental disorders characterized with communication and social interaction problems.
As many of you know, I have a passion to fight Autism and help every parent and family member cope with this terrifying epidemic.
This following story give us all distinct hope. Please read it and forward it to everyone you know.
Brand New Hope for Autism
Amy O’Dell’s school may or may not transform the brains of autistic kids.
At the moment her techniques are more art and gut feel, than science. She works out of a house in a very woodsy area, just outside Atlanta. The upstairs kitchen doubles as an office and consultation room. Downstairs there’s a cabinet-like device with inflatable plastic sacks to simulate muscles and calm hyperactive children.
In other rooms and cubicles, O’Dell and her aides work with children forming sounds and matching colors. They are fighting the terrifying epidemic of Autism and having dramatic success, without drugs and doctors. The attached garage has also been turned into a workplace. At one end it sits O’Dell’s 14-year-old son, Jacob, who ten years ago doctors diagnosed with “pervasive developmental disorder.” Parents of kids like Jacob were told that their children could be institutionalized for life.
One of the most tragic occurrences in our society over the past 20 years, has been the epidemic of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). And the related epidemic of Autism. Our children are mentally non-functional.
And the drug-doctor’s answer is what? Another drug, Ritalin, which turns children into zombies and teaches them to be drug addicts while they are young. There is another answer.
