Mitochondrial are the energy factories for our bodies. In Autism, mitochondrial problems are quite common which can adversely affect cognitive, immune, and biochemical function. This presentation discusses the difference between mitochondrial dysfunction in autism versus mitochondrial disorders. It also discusses various tests helpful for determining mitochondrial imbalances and the supplements useful for supporting healthy mitochondrial function.
Dr. Woeller will discuss various cases from his clinical practice that highlight the benefits of biomedical interventions. Topics to be covered will be Methyl-B12, Specific Carbohydrate Diet and Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Respen-A, Cholesterol Therapy, Oxytocin, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, and more.
Research has shown that many kids on the autism-spectrum are manifesting with deficiencies in folate in the brain. This is important because folate is critical for proper brain function as deficiencies have been associated with learning, language, and cognitive imbalances, as well as propensity for seizures. . Imbalances in methylation lead to cognitive problems, attention, focusing, language and social interaction issues. Both folate supplements and Methyl-B12 therapy work hand in hand to improve brain function in autism. This presentation explores the general aspects of methylation problems in autism, but goes into detail regarding cerebral folate deficiency as well.
Autism is a complex disorder and there are many aspects of a person's clinical history that are crucial to understand if your goal is to successfully implement biomedical intervention. This presentation will go through various questions to ask yourself about your child (or which may be asked by a biomedical physician) and how your answers can shape your biomedical treatment program.
