Autism Coach

Neurological

Providing neurological support is a key factor in improving level of functioning, mood, and overall quality of life for individuals within the autism spectrum. 

A vast body of autism research now indicates that chronic intestinal infections result in pathogenic colonies of bacteria in the gut, producing toxins that pass through the bloodstream into the brain and cause imbalances in brain chemistry.  Two major problematic toxins that make it into the brain are ammonia and proprionic acid, which not only act as excito-toxins, but also skew metabolic processes in the brain to produce excessive levels of glutamates and aspartates which are also excito-toxins.  An excito-toxin over-stimulates a nerve to keep firing - this leads to cascade of events that results in damage to neurons.  There also tends to be low levels of calming neurotransmitters in individuals within the autism spectrum.  For more information, please read our article, Neurotransmitters and Autism.

Other factors causing damage to neurons includes low levels of oxygen in the brain which impair energy production, excessive levels of oxalates, insulin resistance in the neurons (diabetes of the brain), elevated levels of cortisol due to chronic infection and/or stress, and excessive levels of opiates flooding the brain (usually from eating foods containing gluten and casein). 

Excito-toxins, over-stimulating neurons can eventually lead to seizure disorders in up to 40% of individuals within the autism spectrum.  Reducing levels of excito-toxins can prevent or reduce incidences of seizures.

Autism Coach supplements provide neurological support in many different ways.  Most of our supplements provide neurological support either directly or indirectly.  Here is a partial list of supplements listed by area of support - some are found in this section and some are listed elsewhere:
