In part 1, we talked about the causes, conditions, and brain changes in Autistic Spectrum Disorders. Today we will expand upon these topics.

MISFIRING IN AUTISM
* poor body awareness
* retention of primitive motor reflexes which interfere with development
* poor social skills and abnormal emotions
* poor fine and gross motor skills
* poor eye coordination
* sensory processing problems
* rapid heart rate
* digestive weaknesses
* food sensitivities
* compromised immune system
* academic and cognitive problems

WHAT’S GOING ON?

* Once thought a social problem, it is now known to be a central processing problem
* Motor and gait abnormalities
* Distraction due to faulty sensory input
* Overwhelm due to lack of assimilation
* Communication problems with repetitive behavior (Perseveration)
* Causes: small brain areas in the parietal lobe, vermis of cerebellum, corpus callosum, anterior cingulate, and striatum.
* Increased Serotonin levels in the blood
* Abnormalities in inflammatory responses leading to social withdrawal,fear of new stimuli, and sleep disorders
* Abnormal rapid eye movements leading to inability to attend stimuli
* Averted gaze of human faces

ASSOCIATED SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF AUTISTIC SPECTRUM DISORDERS

* Strongly associated with autoimmune disorders in relatives
* Excessive innate immune responses associated with gastrointestinal disorders
* Deficits in postural stability, posture, balance, and eye movements
* Respond to negative emotion
* Decreased motor skills
* Can’t understand non-verbal communication
* Stereotypical behavior

If you have wondered if chiropractic approaches can help see a chiropractor or chiropractors or see a chiropractic neurologist such as myself, Dr. Scott Brown.

As stated in part 1, these conditions can be changed. This is not a lifetime sentence but it does require work. Call  us today at Brown Chiropractic Neurology (303) 986-7600. Proudly serving Golden, Arvada, Wheat Ridge, Denver, Lakewood, and Evergreen.

We now know that Electromagnetic Frequency (EMF) radiation is affecting people’s health. Evidence shows that EMF damage is linked to Autism, low sperm counts, and DNA damage – to name a few (www.explorepub.com). Sources of EMF pollution include cordless phones, wireless phones, wiring in the walls, over and underground cables, lamps, and electrical outlets as well as computers, WI-FI hot spots, wireless printers and on and on. Most animals and humans are incredibly sensitive to even small EMF frequencies. Living cells interpret these exposures as normal cellular activity (heart rate, brain wave, cell division and cell signaling, etc.). But these man made electromagnetic exposures are not normal and have unusual signaling intensities, wave forms, and pulsing patterns detrimental to our health. The insidious thing is that we can’t feel, touch, or detect consciously these EMF’s but it is now clear that our cells are impacted. Sam Milham MD in his book “Dirty Electricity”, states that modern diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes may be triggered by EMF damage.

Some problems now being linked to EMF damage are: increased blood brain barrier permeability, depression, cardiovascular irregularities, DNA damage, hormone disruption, cognitive problems, metabolism changes, Autism, fertility impairment, Sleep Disorders, Immune Disorders, Learning Disorders, mineral deposit disruption, and a host of other neurological conditions. Listen to an interview with Dr. Rau at http://www.electromagnetichealth.org for more.

I strongly suggest that you read as much as you can on how to protect yourself from EMF by googling  – mercola.com – and type in links to his newsletters on the subject of EMF frequencies.

If you have wondered if chiropractic natural nutritional approaches can help you, see a chiropractor or chiropractors. Better yet, see a chiropractic neurologist such as myself Dr. Scott Brown.
