Autism Treatment – Never Too Late to Excel

Children with autistic spectrum disorder are special children with amazing gifts. They may have special abilities that other kids do not have.

" My journey treating children with Autism began when my son was first diagnosed 4 years ago. Seeing success of what additional nutritions can excel his speech, behaviour, attentiveness, learning and much more gave hope for me to help my patients " ~ Dr. Philip Lee

Many parents struggle in many ways during the developmental years of any special child. Attending programs such as  Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA), Communication therapies may be helpful, however giving them the right nutritional food and addressing many underlying issues will improve their biological functions much more..

The biomedical approach to Autism is lacking in our medical system. It is a crucial part to balance the biological development of these special children through natural medicines such as vitamin, minerals, herbs, etc.

Many children with this issue have similar challenges that need naturopathic medical treatment..

  • Constipation or Diarrhea
  • Chronic Intestinal Inflammation
  • Nutrition Absorption Issues
  • Imbalance of Yeast and Bacteria
  • Chronic Eczema
  • Poor Immune System
  • Nutrient  Deficiencies
  • Food Sensitivities such as Gluten , Soy & Dairy
  • Environmental toxicities such as Heavy Metal Toxicities

Generally speaking, by addressing these issues, the children can improve in many areas such as in speech, behavior and social skills. Its remarkable to see how their body will respond when we fix the underlying problem and feed them the right nutrients. Their body is able to improve when we address all their health issues. The process does takes time but it’s rewarding to see them excel..

A few lab test can be beneficial for understanding their current metabolic function.
