As more and more cases are discovered, new revolutionary Autism treatments developed to combat its effects. Autism treatments such as taking vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids, taking melatonin, diet changes and Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques, or NAET®.
One way Autism is being treated is through the use of vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids. Fatty acids are essential for brain function, and several studies have shown that they may reduce certain behaviors related to autism such as repetitive behavior, hyperactivity and improved socialization.
Other studies suggest that autistic children may be deficient in certain nutrients and show improvement in symptoms when taking moderate doses of multivitamins. Some autistic children have shown improvement when they were given injections of vitamin B12. The thought behind it is that this vitamin protects the body against oxidative stress, and signs of this kind of stress have been found in some autistic children.
More than half of all autistic children who have the disorder have sleep disorders, including insomnia. Lack of sleep or disordered sleep can worsen autism symptoms like repetitive behaviors and social issues. Children who take melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone that regulates sleep, have been shown to improve their sleep. A study by Vanderbilt University Medical School showed that when children aged 3 to 9 took melatonin their sleep improved, as did their daytime behavior.
Another autism treatment is dietary changes which restrict casein and gluten. Casein is found in dairy products, and gluten is the protein found in wheat, barley and rye. Some small studies have found these changes helpful, especially if other family members have been shown to be sensitive to either.
NAET was discovered by Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad in November of 1983. The autism treatments are non-invasive and drug free and are used to alleviate allergies. It includes a selective energy balancing, testing and treatment procedures from acupuncture / acupressure, allopathy, chiropractic, nutritional, and kinesiological disciplines of medicine.
The treatment alleviates the reactions to allergens, including food allergies, penicillin, aspirin, latex, grass, ragweed, flowers, perfume, animal dander, make-up, chemicals, cigarette smoke, pathogens, and other environmental agents. NAET uses western sciences and eastern medicine. Knowing the workings of the brain, nerves, spine and autonomic nervous system helps to understand the body’s efficient communication and energy network.

Kids LOVE Dr. Dube!
We highly recommend Advanced Healthcare Clinic, LLC. We started seeing Dr. Dube because my daughter developed functional abdominal pain and nothing else was working. He has always gone above and beyond to make sure Brianne is feeling better, even giving her “princess” needles. He has tried new techniques and we have even been able to take her off all the “traditional” medications she was on before seeing him. Brianne looks forward to going there to see Dr. Dube and Ingrid, they make everyone feel welcome and at home. – JW in Sarasota
