Most parents today are oblivious to the detrimental effects of the standard American diet (SAD) on the developing brain. This is bad enough for those with normal immune systems. For those with Functional Disconnection Syndrome or Autistic Spectrum children, the consequences can be life changing and not in a good way. Gross and find motor skills, behavior, cognition, socialization skills, immunity, GI function, and academics are victims of poor nutrition. Dietary composition has changed drastically from organic and pesticide free to packaged and chemically preserved in just two generations. Needless to say, this is a change for the worse. Depleted soils, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and contaminated gluten are brain toxic. Livestock are no longer grass fed but pumped full of hormones, antibiotics, and poor quality feed. In the last two generations, our diets have increased exponentially in sugar and sugar substitutes, artificial flavors and colorings, bad (trans) fats, and preservatives. Fast food restaurants with their clever marketing attracting kids to fun and inexpensive food powerfully influence our eating behaviors.

This situation calls for wary parents committed to the hard work of designing nutrition for the children

Children with Developmental Delays are DIFFERENT and feel different from other children. In functional neurology, we strongly believe that this is due to something called hemisphericity (one half of the brain is not performing equal to the other). For instance, a child with a rapidly developing right brain and (by comparison) a slower developing left brain may not be able to read words or will tire while reading. A child with the opposite (a rapidly developing left brain and a slower right brain may a whiz at reading but poor with social skills, reading body cues, and eye contact. These children FEEL different because they are. Most feel disconnected from their bodies and have poor muscle tone. They have poor rhythm, timing, posture, and gait. Most do not fully experience the senses of sight, sound, smell, taste, feel. Many time they can’t use more than one sense at once and can become abnormally sensitive to one of the senses (such as sound or light sensitivity).

The brain CAN change. Ours is a revolutionary SOLUTION for children with Functional Disconnections or Learning and Behavioral Disorders (ADD, Dyslexia, Autism, Aspergers’s etc…)

Too much insulin flooding insulin receptor sites and not being able to bind (hyperinsulinemia) is a bad thing. Not only because of the risk of Diabetes, but because of other health effects including increase risk of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). H0w does it do this? It increases risk of High Blood Pressure, damages protein synthesis and coagulation, and interferes with lipoprotein metabolism. Due to insulin’s relationship with  sodium levels, when insulin levels increase so does blood pressure. As insulin levels drop, so does blood pressure. Insulin Resistance also interferes with breaking down fibrin protein which is intimately involved with coagulation (clotting).

Since high insulin levels are also associated with lipid metabolism abnormalities (think high cholesterol, high triglycerides, low good cholesterol (HDL), and high bad cholesterol (LDL), it is wise to lower it to avoid taking statin drug with the know serious side effects.Insulin Resistance is also associated with adrenal, thyroid, liver, immune, gut, and cognitive dysfunction. This is a serious problem that leads to Diabetes. Diabetes alone is projected by health authorities to break the American health care system unless drastic changes are made to eliminate this PREVENTABLE disease.

(1) Eliminate stress. Easier said than done, I know.

(2) Eat many raw foods. Shop the outside sections of the grocery store.

(3) Get chiropractic adjustments and massages. They can lower your blood pressure and reduce body stresses.

(4) Get 8 hours of sleep. Again, easier said than done.

(5) Get plenty of vitamin D. Get it from the sun and with supplements. I can’t stress this enough.

(6) Drink clean water, and alot of it.

(7) Eliminate toxins by eating pure products.

(8) Take in plenty of healthy fats such as omega 3 fatty acids, butter, and coconut oil. Yes, some fats are good for you.

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.

Medical research and development has resulted in numerous treatments for every known health condition. However, it has abjectly failed in the prevention or cure of disease and ill health. Did you know now more than ever:  (1) more people suffer from stress, depression, and anxiety  (2) more people suffer from insomnia (3) more kids have ADD/ADHD  (4) more people have gastrointestinal disorders, acid reflux, and ulcers (5) more people get cancer (6) more people have heart disease  (7) more people have diabetes (8) more people have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue (9) more people get colds and flu (10) more people suffer from neck pain, migraines, joint pain, and back pain (11) more people suffer from sexual dysfunction (12) more people suffer from allergies, asthma, and psoriasis (13) more men suffer from prostate problems (14) more people are taking drugs (15) more women suffer from yeast infections and hormonal problems (16) more people are having surgeries

More people are getting more medical treatment, taking more drugs, getting more sick, and getting more surgery than ever. Over $210 billion has been spent since 1971, on cancer, and you have a higher chance today of getting cancer today than ever before. My opinion is that the so called health care system is not. You and I are destined for rationed “sick care” and it will not be pretty. What is the solution? The ONLY solution is to, starting today, take charge of your health through prevention. Only by eliminating your need for sick care can you age with dignity and grace. If you have small children, this is the time to get them on healthy outdoor play, nutritious foods, and natural health care (including chiropractic). Regardless of which side of the political fence you sit, the new health “insurance” will insure nothing except costly sick care where the treatment for one disease causes the next. Call today at (303) 986-7600 and ask us about our wellness orientation workshops and how they can put you on the true path to health.  Every other Tuesdays at 6:15 pm til 6:50 pm.

SHOCKING fact: the incidence childhood neurological disorders affecting learning and social skills (Autism, Asperger’s, ADHD, ADD, Tourette’s, Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, Sensory Integration Disorders, etc.) has risen from 1 in 10,000,  just a few decades ago,bto now 1 in 80-90 children. Why is this? In the 1050’s, no one even knew what Autism or Asperger’s was; but now, everyone KNOWS SOMEONE personally that has been diagnosed with a learning or social disability. Unfortunately, the diagnosis and treatment (usually by MD’s, behavioral specialists, and psychologists) has changed very little over the past 60 years.

What the bleep is happening? My opinion: (1) so called experts are looking at Autism, Asperger’s, etc, as something you are “born with” that cannot be cured or improved – NOT TRUE (2) an out of control pharmaceutical agenda to push drugs on these kids to mask the symptoms – VERY TRUE AND VERY FRIGHTENING (3) the wide held belief that this spectrum of disorders are all separate conditions (Tourrete’s vs. ADHD vs Autism) – NOT TRUE (4) the theory that it is all genetics – CAN’T POSSIBLY BE TRUE.
So what is it then? Cutting edge research shows that when the two hemispheres of the brain don’t develop at the same rate, there is asymmetry between the left and right hemispheres due to disparity of electrical activity. Dr. Robert Melillo calls it Functional Disconnection Syndrome (I highly recommend his book ” Disconnected Kids”). Since there are no lab tests or scans that can identify these conditions, diagnosis and treatment success is largely dependent of the treating doctor’s clinical skills.

The brain CAN change, and at Brown Chiropractic Neurology (Scott Brown DC, DABCN, FACFN) we diagnose and treat learning and social disabilities using brain based therapeutics and nutritional supplements.

Our philosophy is: (1) there are solutions, and weak areas of the brain can be strengthened (2) due to weakness of brain, there is weakness of gut and nutritional needs will need to be addressed (3) pharmaceutical drugs are not a solution (4) don’t encourage these kids to utilize their strengths but get them to work on their weaknesses.

If you have a learning disabled child, we can help!
