Autism demystified
By Dr S V Bulatov - registered homeopath

Autism is a highly variable neurodevelopmental disorder in children. It occurs four to five times more often in boys than girls. It is one of three recognized disorders in the autism spectrum (ASD). The other two are Asperger’s syndrome and pervasive developmental disorder, not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS).

A few examples of autistic symptoms and treatments were described long before autism was named. The Table Talk of Martin Luther , compiled by his note taker Mathesius, contains the story of a 12-year-old boy who may have been severely autistic. Luther reportedly thought the boy was a soulless mass of flesh possessed by the devil, and suggested that he be suffocated, although a later critic has cast doubt on the veracity of this report.

The earliest well-documented case of autism is that of Hugh Blair of Borgue, as detailed in a 1747 court case in which his brother successfully petitioned to annul Blair's marriage to gain Blair's inheritance.

The Wild Boy of Aveyron, a feral child caught in 1798, showed several signs of autism; the medical student Jean Itard treated him with a behavioral program designed to help him form social attachments and to induce speech via imitation.

The New Latin word autismus (English translation autism) was coined by the Swiss psychiatrist Eugen Bleuler in 1910 as he was defining symptoms of schizophrenia. He derived it from the Greek word autós (αὐτός, meaning "self"), and used it to mean morbid self-admiration, referring to "autistic withdrawal of the patient to his fantasies, against which any influence from outside becomes an intolerable disturbance".

The word autism first took its modern sense in 1938 when Hans Asperger of the Vienna University Hospital adopted Bleuler's terminology autistic psychopaths in a lecture in German about child psychology. Asperger was investigating an ASD now known as Asperger syndrome, though for various reasons it was not widely recognized as a separate diagnosis until 1981.

Leo Kanner of the Johns Hopkins Hospital first used autism in its modern sense in English when he introduced the label early infantile autism in a 1943 report of 11 children with striking behavioral similarities. Almost all the characteristics described in Kanner's first paper on the subject, notably "autistic aloneness" and "insistence on sameness", are still regarded as typical of the autistic spectrum of disorders. It is not known whether Kanner derived the term independently of Asperger.

Kanner's reuse of autism led to decades of confused terminology like infantile schizophrenia, and child psychiatry's focus on maternal deprivation led to misconceptions of autism as an infant's response to "refrigerator mothers".

Starting in the late 1960s autism was established as a separate syndrome by demonstrating that it is lifelong, distinguishing it from intellectual disability and schizophrenia and from other developmental disorders, and demonstrating the benefits of involving parents in active programs of therapy. As late as the mid-1970s there was little evidence of a genetic role in autism; now it is thought to be one of the most heritable of all psychiatric conditions. Although the rise of parent organizations and the de-stigmatization of childhood ASD have deeply affected how we view ASD, parents continue to feel social stigma in situations where their child's autistic behavior is perceived negatively by others, and many primary care physicians and medical specialists still express some beliefs consistent with outdated autism research.

List of symptoms in autism:

Restrictive / repetitive behaviors may include:
  • Repeating certain behaviors or having unusual behaviors
  • Having overly focused interests, such as with moving objects or parts of objects
  • Having a lasting, intense interest in certain topics, such as numbers, details, or facts.
Social communication/interaction behaviors may include:
  • Getting upset by a slight change in a routine or being placed in a new or overly stimulating setting
  • Making little or inconsistent eye contact
  • Having a tendency to look at and listen to other people less often
  • Rarely sharing enjoyment of objects or activities by pointing or showing things to others
  • Responding in an unusual way when others show anger, distress, or affection
  • Failing to, or being slow to, respond to someone calling their name or other verbal attempts to gain attention
  • Having difficulties with the back and forth of conversations
  • Often talking at length about a favorite subject without noticing that others are not interested or without giving others a chance to respond
  • Repeating words or phrases that they hear, a behavior calledecholalia
  • Using words that seem odd, out of place, or have a special meaning known only to those familiar with that person’s way of communicating
  • Having facial expressions, movements, and gestures that do not match what is being said
  • Having an unusual tone of voice that may sound sing-song or flat and robot-like
  • Having trouble understanding another person’s point of view or being unable to predict or understand other people’s actions.
  • Having other difficulties, such as being very sensitive to light, noise, clothing, or temperature. They may also experience sleep problems, digestion problems, and irritability.
Strengths and abilities may include:
  • Having above-average intelligence – about 46% of ASD children have above average intelligence
  • Being able to learn things in detail and remember information for long periods of time
  • Being strong visual and auditory learners
  • Exceling in math, science, music or art.

Autism symptoms are due to a reversible damage in different degrees of the following brain parts: basal ganglia, mesial temporal structures, cingulate gyrus, candate nucleus, thalamus, hippocampus, amygdaloid complex, cerebellum and brain stem.

This could be visualized as hypo metabolic areas of the brain in black, dark blue, blue and light blue color on PET CT scan images. The frequency of autism is increasing exponentially from 1 in 165 children (2004) to 1 in 68 children (2014). More than 21.7 million people were affected globally in 2013.

About 50% of autistic children have a genetic condition called kryptopyrroluria. It is caused by a defect of several enzymes needed for the synthesis of heme, which is a building block of hemoglobin that delivers oxygen to the cells and cytochrome P450 oxidases that detoxify the body.

The heme is involved in other important functions as well. Increased levels of circulating kryptopyrrols bind with zinc and vitamin B6. This causes a severe zinc and vitamin B6 deficiency. Zinc is a co-factor in more than 200 enzymes in the body. Vitamin B6 is involved in production of neurotransmitters in the brain. They also suffer from low glutathione level that slows detoxification.

The key symptoms of kryptopyrroluria are: poor tolerance of physical/emotional stress, poor anger control, emotional mood swings, behaviour disorders, addictions, autism, Asperger’s, ADHD, ADD, depression, bipolar disorder, assaultive/aggressive/violent behaviour, schizophrenia, anxiety, delusions, hallucinations, paranoia, occasional loss of contact with reality, tendency to have an insight (understand they have mental problems), poor short term memory, prefer not to eat breakfast, upper abdominal pain when stressed, stitch in their side if they run, tendency to become loners as they age, mental symptoms are aggravated when undergoing stress, sweet, fruity breath and body odour, general loss of appetite, motion sickness, pain, seizures, complete physical debilitation, frequent infections, inability to tan, poor dream recall, abnormal fat distribution, light, sound, odour and touch over sensitivity, hypoglycaemia, pale skin, tremor, shaking, spasms, white spots on the nails, environmental and food allergies, cold hands or feet, stretch marks, tiredness, anaemia, retention of heavy metals and environmental toxins, constipation and bloated feeling.

It flares up when the individual is undergoing a prolonged stress, such as during a chronic and debilitating illness.

Treatment: Taking zinc , copper , manganese and vitamin B6 for life adjusted according to the age, metabolic type, microbiological terrain and kryptopyrrol levels in the urine. Methyl reconstruct is the best option.

More than 75% of autistic children are born with gluten and lactose intolerance . This causes a leaky gut syndrome, autoimmune reactions, candida albicans/mould/clostridium overgrowth. As a result many toxic metabolites (neurotoxins) are released in the bloodstream. Gluten intolerance is associated with more than 150 medical conditions.

Heavy metals (aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, nickel) affect severely the sensitive nervous system of the child. They stimulate very strongly the growth of existing infections

Hypoxia during birth could also affect negatively the above mentioned brain structures.

Chronic CerebroSpinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI) is an obstruction of the veins that drain the brain and spinal cord due to agenesis, atresia, hypoplasia, stenosis, abnormal valve, septum, flap or membrane .

The main symptoms of CCSVI are:

  • increasing physical fatigue as the day progresses
  • headaches that worsen when lying face up
  • variable reduction in sphincter control
  • reduction of the motor and sensorial functions
  • reduction of visual acuity
  • problems with or temporary losses of memory
  • swallowing difficulties
  • language difficulties
  • sexual impediment
  • paleness
  • reduction in the working memory
  • sleep disturbances

The lengthening of blood drainage time from the Central Nervous System may provoke:

  • hypoxia
  • perfusion delays
  • reduction in catabolite drainage
  • increase in trans mural pressure
  • intense inflammation of the small veins or the tissues closest to them

The best diagnostic methods are duplex ultrasonography, catheter venography and magnetic resonance venography.

The treatment varies according to the degree of malformation.

Acute and chronic borreliosis (Lyme disease) is common amongst autistic children. It could be transmitted through the placenta during pregnancy or acquired during early childhood. The neurotoxins from the metabolism of Borrelia burgdorferi could affect severely the nervous system and the whole body. Lyme disease could imitate more than 365 medical conditions.

There are other co-infections that could change the brain function drastically like rickettsia, coxiella, mycoplasma, chlamydia, streptococcus (PANDA syndrome), staphylococcus, toxoplasma, bartonella, brucella, babesia,anaplasma and ehrlichia.

Candida/mould/clostridium overgrowth additionally weaken the body through the mycotoxins/endotoxins that they release.

The most common viral infections in autistic children are: EBV, CMV,Coxsackie A/B and herpes. They attack directly the nervous and endocrine system.

Parasitic infestations in autistic children are very common. They often have bilharzia, round worms, giardia, threadworms, hookworms, flat worms and flukes.

EMF (Electro Magnetic Fields)
from Wi-Fi, mobile/cordless phones, cell masts, power lines, computers, laptops, ipads, TV sets, play stations, microwave ovens, etc. are particularly dangerous for these children as they speed up the growth of fungi up to 600 times!!! It has direct damaging effect on the cellular membranes of all cells but particularly neurons.

Progressively rising levels of glyphosate (herbicide used worldwide) in soil, mother’s milk, drinks, foods and environment disrupts severely the brain function.

Deficiency of iodine, silicone, manganese, zinc, copper, molybdenum, germanium and other trace minerals causes various brain imbalances. These deficiencies are wide spread, especially in US, Russia, China and Africa.

The treatment strategy of autism is integrative. It takes months and years of patience, perseverance and courage to achieve success. Most autistic children would improve dramatically and would be integrated in mainstream schools. They would have normal life as any other child.

Here is the most effective strategy that leads to success:

  1. Gluten/lactose/soy/colorants/preservatives/additives/sugar/fructose/caffeine/aspartame free diet as a foundation.

    Consult an integrative medicine practitioner who does iridology/sclerology analysis. This is very informative for the treatment program. Go for a live blood analysis (LBA) and meridian tests (EIS, Voll, B.E.S.T., SCIO, QX, e-Lybra, etc.). They give you the real state of health of the blood and body. Presence of liver fluke could be identified with it.

    The following blood tests: borrelia Western Blott, rickettsia, coxiella, mycoplasma, chlamydia, toxoplasma, brucella, bartonella, ASOT/Anti -Dnase B, bilharzia, babesia, EBV, CMV, Coxsackie B, herpes, lipoprotein (a), homocysteine, CRP, thyroid function and antibodies, FBC, iron studies, vitamin B12, folic acid, inhalant/food allergies, ImuPro 90 foods test and vitamin D give you a good picture of metabolism and microbiological terrain.

    The following urine tests: kryptopyrrols, MC&S and metal condensed pre&ndashchelation identify pyrroluria, UTI’s and level of heavy metals.

    The following feces tests: MC&S, clostridium and H.pylori identify presence and type of bacteria and parasites in the gut.

    Anti-mould diet should be followed for a year or more if there is a candida/mould overgrowth. Use as much as possible organic foods. Add fulvicforce, bicarbonate of soda, magnesium peroxide, glutamine, probiotics, Cand)ex, Gut recovery, Candideo, warburgia, etc.

    Anti-bacterial diet should be followed for 3 - 6 months if there is a clostridium infection. No antioxidants should be taken for that period as they aggravate the anaerobic infection!!! Use only oxidants like magnesium peroxide and cellfood.

    Make a regular use of ozonated far infrared sauna with resonator for 12 months. This speeds up the detoxification and healing tremendously. Another option is a combination of a zapper and foot detoxification for 6 - 12 months.

  2. Heavy metal detoxification. Stop vaccinations as they contain mercury compounds and many biological toxins! Give homeopathic nosodes instead. Stop using aluminum utensils in the kitchen.
    Take IP6, CelDTX, chlorella, spirulina, seaweed or zeolite for 3-6 months.
    Ozonated far infrared sauna with resonator is one of the best methods for heavy metal detoxification.
    Add fresh coriander to the meals on a daily basis.
  3. Take vitamin B6, zinc, copper and manganese daily if there is a kryptopyrroluria.
  4. The viral infections could not be cured effectively with conventional medicines (acyclovir). They could be healed completely with homeopathic remedies/viral nosodes/beta gamma globulin/interferon, vitamin A, C, D, medicinal mushrooms, selenium, sutherlandia, olive leaf, extract, elderberry, monolaurin, Chinese medicines, etc. A catabolic diet should be followed for 3-6 months.
    The intracellular bacterial infections might require antibiotic treatment in some cases. A combination of homeopathic remedies/nosodes, fulvicforce, magnesium peroxide, cellfood, Lyme)x, Cool Blue, AV/AT, Antibiobotanical, IM-1&3, tanshins, coryber, etc. for 6-9 months clears them completely.
    Anti-bacterial diet should be followed for a few months.
    Candida/mould infections could not be healed with conventional anti-fungal medicines (fluconazole). They require alkalization, oxygenation and detoxification of the body with bicarbonate of soda, magnesium peroxide, fulvicforce/coral calcium and heavy metal chelators. Anti-mould diet for a year is crucial.
    Parasitic investations could not be cleared completely with Vermox and Biltricide. HQZ, Paraspec, SDG, LPI, Bilharzeo have to be used for 3 months to eradicate all parasites.
  5. Breaking the bio-film in chronic bacterial and fungal infections with proteolytic enzymes (nattokinase, serrapeptase, bromelain, etc.), special herbal extracts (terminalia chebula, tanshins, coryber, AV/AT), 10 oils mix, etc.
  6. Taking brain and other nutrients: creatine monohydrate, acetyl - L - carnitine, choline, inositol, lecithin, EPA/DHA, ALA, coenzyme Q10, glutamine, GABA, chlorella growth factor, AFA, kali phos D6, silica D6, vitamin B complex, vitamin B12, folic acid, Lugol’s solution, Panax complex, cellfood, fulvicforce, coral calcium, hemp/pea protein powder, chia seeds, etc. creates an excellent foundation for an effective healing.
  7. Special education system and tools.
  8. Animal therapy: cats and dogs as pets, swimming with dolphins and horse riding contribute a lot to the healing process.
  9. Visual and sound therapy stimulates the damaged brain structures to recover.
  10. Radiation protection is an absolute necessity! Get various devices like orgonites (minishield, conus or pyramid), tachyons, quantum pendants, copper wires, etc. to neutralize and/or transform the EMF.
  11. Homeopathic remedies: aethusa, Agaricus, aloe, ambra grisea, anacardium, arsenicum album, arsenicum iodatum, aurum metallicum, Baryta carbonica, baryta muriatica, baryta phosphorica, belladonna, Bufo, Cactus, calcarea phosphorica, carcinosin, causticum, china officinalis, cicuta, cuprum metallicum, gelsemium, helleborus, hydrogenium, hyoscyamus, ignatia, iodum, Kalium bromatum, kalium phosphoricum, Lycopodium, magnesium carbonicum, medorrhinum, mercurius solubilis, moschus, muriatic acid, nux moschata, Olibanum sacrum, opium, phosphorus, platinum, plumbum metallicum,Secretinum, silicea, staphysagria, Stramonium, sulphur, syphilinum, tarentula hispanica, thuja, thyreoidinum, Tuberculinum, veratrum album, zincum metallicum, etc. are very effective in healing of autism. Consult an experienced homeopath to take the case and find the correct remedy.
  12. Bach remedies: aspen, beech, centaury, cerato, cherry plum, chestnut bud, chicory, clematis, crab apple, gentian, gorse, holly, hornbeam, impatiens, larch, mimulus, mustard, oak, olive, rock rose, scleranthus, Star of Bethlehem, sweet chestnut, walnut, water violet, white chestnut, wild oat, wild rose, willow and Rescue remedy.
  13. Kinesiology/Body Talk is very good for speeding up the healing.
  14. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy helps the damaged brain tissue to regenerate.
  15. Stimulating of all brain reflex points on the irises, ear lobes, finger tips and toes for 5-10 min twice a day is very useful.
  16. Stimulating stem cells release with exercise, fasting, sleep, radiation protection and herbal extracts like stem enhance, AFA, chlorella, spirulina, cordyceps, polygonum multiflorum, astragalus, epimedium, ginseng, Echinacea, fucoidan, pterocarpus marsupium, pine bark proanthocyanidins, curcumin, pomegrante, lupeol, grapholide, vitamin D3, blueberry, carnosine and green tea. etc. Gradual improvement could be seen after 2-3 months.
  17. Autologous stem cell therapy at NeuroGen Brain&Spine Institute in Mumbai, India, www.neurogenbsi.com with Prof Alok Sharma or other similar facilities worldwide. Dramatic improvement could be seen after 2-3 months.
  18. Reading the Bible daily (Hebr 4:12, 2 Tim 3:16-17), prayer (Jam 5:16), laying hands (Mark 16:18) and anointing with oil (Jam 5:14) is essential. Pray to Yahweh (God) (Ex 3:14-15) and Yahshua (Jesus) (John 1:1-4, John 6:40, 44, 47, 14:6, Matth 28:18-20) our Elohim (Yahweh/Yahshua) (Gen 1:1) only!!! Ask Them to send the Ruach Ha Kodesh (Holy Spirit) (Gen 1&ndash2, Acts 2:2-4) to heal the child. Do not put your trust in people (Ps 118:8) using bones/shells, animal sacrifices, rituals, traditions, ancestral spirits, astrologers, numerologists, tarot readers, mediums, psychic healers, hypnotherapists, etc. (Lev 19:31, Dan 2:27-28, 47, 3:28-29). This is extremely dangerous! Various demons will present themselves as angels of light. A progressive confusion/aggravation will follow and the child will never be cured. Yahshua has cancelled all animal sacrifices and rituals by shedding His blood once for all!!! The parents of the autistic child should confess all their sins (Jam 5:16) and repent to receive forgiveness. The sacredness of the marriage should be restored. All pornographic materials should be cleared from the house. The father of the child should resume his role in the family to be the head, the high priest and the king. Then the wife and the child will be blessed and healed. The integrative treatment program leads to fast results. Positive changes could be observed after a few weeks. Radical shift takes place usually after 6-12 months. Autism is curable! Please, share this vital information with the community.
