is a neurologically based developmental disorder that generally
affects children before the age of 3. Some researchers believe autism
may be caused by environmental factors such as exposure to mercury
from MMR and other childhood vaccinations. Research has also found
the disorder is linked to the exposure of mercury from the silver
dental amalgam fillings that the children's mothers had during pregnancy
and/or the combination of both. Mercury affects the Central Nervous
system among many other areas Autism is a disorder that profoundly
affects the central nervous system among many other areas.
to Bernie Windham, Toxin and Enviornmental Chemical Engineer, "Mercury
has an effect on the fetal nervous system at levels far below that
considered toxic in adults, and background levels of mercury in
mothers correlate significantly with the incidence of birth defects
and still births."
has also shown that by detoxifying the brain and body of these heavy
metals that go through our bloodstream and bind to our organs, cells,
muscles etc... has helped a high percentage of children previously
diaggnosed with Autism.
to Dr. Stephanie Cave in her book titled "What Your Doctor May NOT
Tell You About Children's Vaccinations", "The biggest improvement
comes when the toxic metals are removed from the children's bodies.
We have seen nearly complete recovery in many of the two to seven
year old children."
Essential Oils have the ability to detoxify and remove metallics
from our bodies!
also believe that gastrointestinal disorders may also be linked
to the brain dysfunctions that cause autism. Recent studies have
shown that there are beneficial effects of Enzyme Based Therapy
for Autism Spectrum Disorders.
a study conducted by Dr. Timothy Buie, a pediatric gastroenterologist
from Harvard/Mass General hospital, forty-six patients between the
ages of 5 and 31 were selected for inclusion in a study based on
a diagnosis placing them in the category of the autism spectrum
disorders, ADD and ADHD. Their diets were supplemented with a dietary
enzyme formulation. The results: The enzyme formula beneficially
and safely affected all thirteen of the parameter measured. Improvements
ranged from 50-90% depending on the parameters measured. The enzyme
was effective at improving the symptoms such as socialization, hyperactivity,
attention, eye contact, comprehension and compulsions.
both ADHD/ADD and Autism, stimulation of the limbic region of the
brain may also help treat these disorders. The aromas from Therapeutic
Essential Oils have a powerful ability to stimulate this part of
the brain, since the sense of smell is tied directly to the mind's
emotional and hormonal centers. As a result, the aroma of an essential
oil has the potential to exert a powerful influence on ADD/ADHD
a two year case study (1999-2001), Dr. Terry Friedmann M. D. found
significant results when children that had previously been diagnosed
with ADD/ADHD were administered therapeutic essential oils by inhalation.
essential oils of Brain Power, Vetiver, Lavender and Cedarwood were
used. The oils were administered in this fashion: one oil was administered
by inhalation 3 times per day for 30 days. An inhalation device
was also used at night to administer a continuous inhalation of
inhalation of the oils proved to settle the children's brain waves
back into normal patters and improved their scholastic performance
and behavioral patterns.
final results were:
increased performance by 53%
increased performance by 83%
increased performance by 100%.
study will be published in the American Medical Association Journal.
It is unfortunate that America's children are having to suffer due
to these unforeseen circumstances. There is a real hope for the
children of our future with the Therapeutic Essential Oils and supplements.
Essential oils have the ability to detoxify and oxygenate the body,
something that research has been found to help these special children
