An Autism Doctor Explains The Many Benefits of Biomedical Autism Treatments:
Biomedical autism treatment is an expanding area of medicine that recognizes for the majority of autism-spectrum children, teenagers and adults, that they are dealing with underlying medical issues that are at the root cause of their autism condition. Specialists such as physicians, scientists, general healthcare practitioners, and parents have known for years that biomedical autism treatment works for a large majority of autism individuals. These biomedical autism treatments include diet, supplement therapy, immune support, and more.
The main areas of improvement are the following:
* Better cognitive skills – learning, memory retention, etc.
* Improved social skills – more appropriate interactions, willingness to engage socially.
* Better eye contact, attention, focusing enhanced.
* More stable behaviors – less aggressive, tantrums, and irritability
* Improved capacity for speech development*
* Increased environmental awareness
* Less self-stimulatory behavior
For years “traditional” medical practitioners only describes autism as a neuro-developmental disorder. Their limited scope of treatment involves psychiatric medications, and behavioral therapies. However, the biomedical field understands that autism is more than just a brain disorder. It views autism as a multi-system disorder that adversely affects the brain. Multi-system means the immune, digestion, hormone, detoxification and blood chemistry systems all play an interactive role in many cases of autism Imbalances, deficiencies and dysfunctions in the normal functioning of these body systems can adversely affect a person’s health and brain function leading to what we call autism or an autism-spectrum disorder. When an autistic individual is assessed medically, and their multiple underlying medical issues are addressed through biomedical autism treatment, many times their autism condition can improve or completely go away. The medical community that addresses autism this way by implementing biomedical autism biomedical treatment recognizes that autism is treatable and actually reversible for many individuals on the autism-spectrum.
