Autism Coach

Supporting Auto-Immune and Age-Related Health Issues


Free phone consultations and shipping at Autism Coach
Over the years, we found that Autism Coach customers were using our supplements to support a wide variety of auto-immune and aging-related health conditions, including Celiac, IBS, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Congestive Heart Failure, Depression, Bi-Polar, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. 
 
Issues related to autism, such as chronic infection, chronic inflammation, and an impaired ATP energy cycle are not surprisingly also issues for auto-immune and aging related conditions.  We have found that these same supplements helpneurological and support the ATP energy cycle that enables to cells function at a more youthful level.
 
Below is a list of conditions and the products of ours that are most applicable:
 
ADD/ADHD
 
Carnosine has been proving to be of benefit for ADD and ADHD.  Carnosine concentrates in the frontal lobe area of the brain to help with executive function and impulse control.  Other vitamins that are helpful include zinc, magnesium and Omega 3 oils.  
 
There appears to be impaired ability to metabolize B vitamins with these conditions.  Most individuals with these issues are deficient in B-12 and many benefit from B-6 and folic acid.  Some individuals respond more favorably to the standard form of B-vitamins offered in most stores, and the others benefit more from methylated B vitamins which are easier to metabolize. 
 
The majoriy of individuals with ADD and ADHD benefit from the gluten/casein free diet plus along with eliminating all artificial colors, sweeteners, flavors, tats and preservatives. 
 
There also tends to be a tendency for there to chronic overgrowth of Candida and intestinal issues which can be addressed by probiotics.  Probiotic products we carry that will help control Candida overgrwoth include our Candex, Multi-Green Plus, Saccharomyces Boullardi, Culturelle.
 
In theh Great Lakes Region, there was contamination of fish with dioxin and PCBs.  Research indicates a strong correlation between the consumption of this fish by pregnant mothers and their children and ADD/ADHD.
 
Dyslexia
 
Carnosine has been proving to be of benefit for dyslexia.  There can actually be reduced visual distortion over a period of weeks with individuals taking Carnosine.  In general, most individuals also benefit from the same supplements as those with ADD/ADHD, including active forms of vitamin B12, B6, and folate (not folic acid), and naturals forms of Vitamin E.
 
 
Celiac
 
There is a strong correlation between celiac and autism running in the same families.  The incidence of both diagnoses is almost identical in the U.S. - 1 in 100 individuals in the U.S. are diagnosed with celiac and 1 in 110 children are diagnosed with autism.  Most children within the autism spectrum and all people with celiac do not tolerate grains containing the gluten protein.  What is less well known is that 40% of people with celiac are also sensitive to animal dairy products as are most individuals within the autism spectrum. 
 
 
New research is indicating that genetically modified foods, contaminated with the herbicide Glyphosphate (Roundup) are a trigger for Celiac, so it is best to avoid genetically modified foods, the common ones crops including corn, soy, wheat, and sugar beets.  It is best not to buy processed foods and to make foods from scratch with certified non-GMO ingredients to avoid these crops.
 
All our supplements are well tolerated by people with celiac, as they are gluten and casein free.  Those that may be of benefit include:
 
Houston Enzymes - Peptizyde and Zyme Prime.  Zyme Prime breaks down carbohydrates in grains and may be used to reduce a reaction to accidentally consuming a food containing gluten, a protein commonly found in wheat. 
 
Vitamineral Powder was developed by an individual diagnosed with celiac and contains a comprehensive blend of natural ingredients that provide the equivalent of a multi-vitamin/mineral/enzyme.    It is technically not a supplement and is actually a whole food.  This would be at the top of products I would recommend for Celiac.  It is healing for the gut and also gently promotes detoxification while supporting the liver and kidneys.
 
Intest-Protect was also developed by an individual diagnosed with celiac and is extremely effective at healing the gut.  It is the only supplement that ever was effective in treating my husband's irritable bowel syndrome.
 
Multi-Vitamin - including our B-Complex, Behavior Balance, Bioactive Mineral Powder.
 
Our Multi-Green Plus was designed to be well-tolerated individiuals with celiac and includes a wide variety of probiotics and enzymes for complete digestion, in addition to absorable vitamins and minerals in a food form.
 
Our probiotics Culture and Saccharomyces Boullardi will help to control pathogens such as Candida, Klebsiella and Clostridium Difficile.
 
Low Energy Conditions - Chronic Fatigue, Gulf War Syndrome, Lyme Disease, Fibromyalgia
 
Once again, there is a high correlation between conditions where individuals have a lowered level of energy and mental fatigue and autism running in the same families.These conditions typically benefit from anti-viral, bacterial and fungal regimens, in addition to supplements that help support the ATP energy cycle.
 
Recommend supplements speficially for enhancing energy include:
 
Maxi-Energy, Alpha GPC, Co-Q 10 and Citicholine
 
Of course, inviduals with these issues can also benefit from easy to digest multivitamins and minerals such as the Bioactive Vitamin Mineral Powder.
 
Having low levels of oxygen results in oxidative stress and also severely impairs mitochondrial function, so increasing delivery of oxygen to the cells can dramatically help.  Carriers of oxygen include sulfur and selenium.

Age Related Conditions - Arthritis, Parkinson's, Alzheimers
 
The ATP energy cycle is the used by every in the body.  As our cells age, they become less efficient and producing energy and eliminating waste and toxins from the body.  It is widely accepted that inefficient cellular functioning is at the root of aging and age-related conditions.  Our supplements provide the intermediaries that cells need to efficiently generate energy and eliminate waste products and toxins.  Inflammation is a trigger that not only triggers arthritis but neurlogical inflammation as well contributing to conditions such as Parkinson's and Alzheimers.  Also the ability to efficiently digest and absorb nutrients from food becomes in impaired.

For a list of supplements that can help with digestion, please click here,
 
The Vita-Mineral greens would be amongst the top products I would recommend because they are a whole food that actually provides a complete multi-vitamin and mineral in food form.  If constipation is an issue, the Vita-Mineral greens are perhaps the most effective product I have ever come across for gently and naturally relieving constipation.  The Bioactive Vitamin Mineral Complex provides a far superior vitamin to Centrum Silver with nutrients that are essential for overall and neurlogical health in forms that are better absorbed and used by the body as we age.
 
Anti-inflammatory products include our Nordic Natural Cod Liver Oil, IntestBest, and the autism enzymes. When food is poorly digested, it can trigger inflammatory responses in the intestinal tract which lead to inflammation throughout the body.
 
We put my father who was diagnosed with Parkinson's on our LIpoceutical Glutathione and Vitamin C and saw immediate improvements.  He was able to talk and communicate with us again after he began taking this and remained mentally present and communicative until the end of his life. 
 
Other products we recommend for mental alertness include:  Carnosine, Co-Q10, Vinpocetine, and Phosphatidyl Serine.
 
Products that act as protectants against Alzheimers include our Methyl B-12 spray, Glutathione and Alpha-Lipoic Acid, and Coconut Oil.  In many cases dementia is triggered by low levels of Vitamin B12; the active forms of B12 in many of our vitamins are better absorbed.  There can also be a build-up of waste products in the brain that includes heavy metals.  Glutathione and Alpha Lipoic Acid can help to remove heavy metals which interfere with neurons communicating efficiently with each other.  Alzheimer's is now considered to be diabetes of the brain, with neurons having insulin resistance, unable to absorb sufficient glucose as a source of energy to sustain them; an alternative source of energy for them is medium chain triglyceride fats found in coconut oil.  
 
Cardiovascular
 
My mother, who was diagnosed with congestive heart failure over 10 years ago, saw 40% improvement in her heart function at her physician's checkup, simply by taking 100 mg of our CoQ10 every day the year after she started taking it (about 6 years ago).  As of 2011, my mother received a call from her cardiologist indicating that her heart function actually improved even more than last year.  She is now getting an extra 1-2 hours of energy a day, after starting our Maxi-Energy supplement which supports the ATP energy cycle. 
 
Diabetes and Retinopathy
 
Insulin, interestingly is produced both in the brain and the in the pancreas.  There is a new research indicating that Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease may actually be diabetes of the brain. 
 
Products that are helpful for diabetes are our liquid chromium, which can help to reduce the amount of insulin needed, Carnosine which protects the brain against damage from excessive levels of glucose in the blood, and Coconut oil which provides an alternative source of energy for neurons (medium chain triglyceride fats).
 
There is recent research indicating that some individuals with diabetes or a pre-diabetic condition may have an impaired ability to manufacture Carnosine.   A recent study on mice predisposed to developing diabetes indicate that Carnosine delayed the onset of diabetes and also reduced it's severity.  It also appears to have significant protectant measures against diabetic retinopathy - and recent research indicates this benefit may be obtained from Carnsone taken orally in supplement form (in addition to eye drops).  
 
Depression, Bipolar, Schizophrenia
 
Carnosine has been proving to be of benefit for depression, bipolar issues and schizophrenia.
 
There appears to be impaired ability to metabolize B vitamins with these conditions.  Most individuals with these issues are deficient in B-12 and many benefit from B-6 and folic acid.  Some individuals are under-methylators and other are over-methylators.  The undermethylators respond well to methylated B vitamins which are easier to metabolize.   These forms of Bs are found in most of our products containing B Vitamins including our Behavior Balance Liquid, Methyl-B12 spray, Bioactive Vitamin Mineral Powder and B Complex.  The B vitamins work well with the Carnosine.
