A big part of my practice is treating learning, sensory/motor processing, and developmental disorders. There are no drug “cures” for these disorders. Research shows that  Autistic children have under developed (smaller than normal) areas of the brain in  the frontal lobe, basal ganglia, and cerebellum. The rise in Autism has been the subject of great controversy. In 1980, there was no doctor trained for treating Autism because it was largely unknown (less than 1 in 100,000 cases). Today the estimates are in the 1 in100 range. Unbelievable right? One argument, put forth by the profit driven drug industry which makes big dollars on vaccination programs, is that it is genetic. Scientifically speaking, gene mutations in populations cannot occur quickly enough to account for the exponential rise in Autism in just 30 years. Clearly there are other factors. On the other side are the anti-vaccination party who think that the mercury in vaccines is (or was) purely responsible for the rise.

In my opinion, the problem is a societal one that includes a number of factors:

(1) the rise of toxic processed foods, water, air, and pharmaceuticals

(2) lack of exercise

(3) Computer and TV babysitting

(4) Absentee parenting

(5) Stress

(6) Obesity

(7) Heavy metals (including vaccine loads)

THE BRAIN CAN CHANGE

(1) Autistic problems have solutions

(2) Medications aren’t the answer

(3)  Conditions can be reversed

(4) This is one problem with one solution

(5) This is one case where you don’t accentuate the positive, you accentuate the negative (side of the brain)

HOW CHIROPRACTIC NEUROLOGY or  YOUR CHIROPRACTOR WORKS

(1) Kinesthetic stimulation to the side of decreased brain or cerebellum

(2) Visual stimulation to the side of decreased brain

(3) Auditory stimulation to the side of decreased brain

(4) Olfactory stimulation to the side of decreased brain

(5) Cognitive exercises to the side of decreased brain

(6) Elimination of primitive reflexes

(7) Elimination of offending foods

(8) Elimination of toxins

CONDITIONS THAT CAN BE REVERSED

ADD/ADHD, Autism/Asperger’s, Childhood Disintegrative Disorder, Dyslexia, Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, Oppositional Defiant Disorders, Tourette’s Syndrom, and Non Verbal Learning Disabilities

NINE UNIQUE THINGS ABOUT AUTISTIC SPECTRUM DISORDERS: (1) they are not separate but have the same underlying problem -smaller brain areas (2) deficits in clumsiness will occur in 50-100% of these kids (4) bi-pedalism (standing on two feet) leads to brain asymmetry (5) cognitive and motor dysfunction (6) loss of stimulation from postural muscles leads to loss of temporal processing (7) developmental delays (8) the most common problem is gait and posture (9) loss of stimulation from postural muscles results in loss of spatial connections.
