Alternative Therapy For Mental Problems

Alternative Therapy for Autism

This site is designed to help you do research to find help and solutions that improve the symptoms of autism. You can use this reference page to find out more of the various therapies that have helped others. New products and theories are emerging all the time.

There are many different therapies that have helped many people with "mental problems", from ADD / ADHD / Autism to depression, and even schizophrenia. Some (such as EEG Biofeedback (aka Neurofeedback (NFB)) or Point of View (EPT) or Hyperbaric (oxygen tank), and others, now have inexpensive alternatives excluding Google's "name" if information is required on them. .

1. The cheapest and most expensive brain training method is the Neuroliminal Training System (NT). It has now proven to be an excellent and inexpensive alternative to the highly expensive Neurofeedback (NFB) training, and Hyperbaric Oxygen. The results are very similar to Neurofeedback (both EEG and HEG BF). For a fraction of their cost, it offers cheaper and cheaper alternatives to Ritalin and other dangerous drugs for low- and middle-income families who may not be Neurofeedback or Hyperbaric. Both NFB and NT work to eliminate allergens affecting mental disorders of all types.

2. Allergies are almost always part of all "brain problems", There are easy and free (except for some detective work) ways to detect them. Even if you use NT or NFB Training, this is a good idea!

3. For the ADD to Autism continuum (as well as depression and schizophrenia), there is a good chance that mercury used in vaccines of infants or children (or other toxic minerals) may be the underlying problem. These mineral toxins MUST be removed from the body. There are many old and new ways to do this:

a. Vitamin C in large doses: It has two advantages; it's cheap, and it's good for overall health. In my former practice, I have used it with great success in many cases of schizophrenia. In general, it is very safe, unless the patient has an allergy to corn (not the usual one). For younger children, I would recommend 1 gram (1000 mg) per serving per 40 pounds per child. Overdose only causes diarrhea, and may need to work up to this amount if it does. If corn allergies are suspected, use Ascorbate Calcium, either in powder or pill form. I bought the cheapest ascorbic acid from Cosco, but my wife (with a corn allergy) had to use Ascorbate Calcium.

b. Inject chelating: Therapy in which chelating medicine (EDTA) is injected into the vein for an hour or more at the clinic office. It's a bit expensive, too. Not encouraged.

c. Liquid Zeolite: A new (and relatively expensive) mouth-watering method. This is actually a very porous lava rock, and this porosity attracts heavy metals (mercury, lead, copper, etc.) to bind it, and takes it out through the urinary / kidney route. The report is great, but it is marketed by a MultiLevelMarketing (MLM) scheme that makes it more expensive. The basic retail price is about $ 50, but if you're a distributor, it drops to $ 33 or more. You can find more information by Googling "zeolite".

d. Glutathione Supplements: There are supplements (new to me) designed specifically to increase Glutathione levels in the body. Glutathione is a natural combination of amino acids that is a powerful anti-oxide with several other interesting features:

It is a key part of the immune system often overlooked by scientists. Glutathione detoxifies the body by taking toxins, including mercury and other toxic minerals. (Similar to chelation, but most toxins and other minerals.) It is not well absorbed when taken as a direct supplement. This is important because there are many supplements that contain glutathione that are not generally effective.

Low glutathione levels are found in all autistic children, as well as many ill or toxic ones. This low level does not allow for good excretion. This explains why hair, blood, and mercury (and other minerals) tests do not show exactly what is stored in the body.

Additional program price - $ 85 for 28-day supply. Again it's not cheap, but it should be worth the price if you can afford it.

4. There is a company that organizes a special "Ecological Diet Body", This has been successful with autism and almost all other health problems. It includes many products designed to make the human body function better and more efficiently. It includes some excellent probiotics as well as others that help eliminate excessive growth of yeast & "Leaky Gut Syndrome". Again, not cheap, but worth it, if it's affordable for your family.

5. What to do with digestive enzymes with ADD / ADHD and autism? "Leaked" bowel syndrome produces more allergies / sensitivities, and enzymes with food break down better to reduce "leaky gut". It has helped many ADD / ADHD as well as autistic people.

a. There is a bulletin board sponsored by Kirkman Labs that has a forum on special digestive enzymes. Join us at: enzymesandautism-subscribe@yahoogroups.com.

b. Another company with a very good enzyme line is the New Start. In addition to enzymes, they contain many Gluten / Casein Free Nutritional Supplements, and "purified sources" of cholesterol (see below).

6. At a recent Orlando conference, I also learned that many autists have low cholesterol, and adding two egg yolks a day can improve many symptoms. This should be easy and cheap to try. If the person has an allergy to the egg (unusual) then "purified" cholesterol can be obtained from a non-allergenic New Start provider.

7. For autistic children (and ADD / ADHD), there is plenty of evidence that gluten-free and dairy-free diets can significantly help. Google gfcf for more information. (The Caveman diet above includes this and many other common allergens. Try it for a week or so, then switch to gfcf.)

8. Recent research shows that adding fish oil can dramatically improve ADD-Autism. I use salmon fish oil from our Health Co-op. This web-based health food store is one of the best in terms of quality and price. (I have no financial interest in this company or Solgar, but I did buy some supplements from them.)

9. There is a drug called LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone). Although it is a drug, it seems that in low doses, it can reduce many of the problems. How well the results for autism are reported. (symptoms) in autism, HIV / AIDS, cancer, etc.

10. Another new "therapeutic" diet consists of additional glyconutrients. A company called Mannotech markets it with MLM (which I hate), and they seem to help with some of the symptoms of ADD-Autism. For more details on glyconutrients - important new nutrients - check out both Mannotech and glyconutrients by googling them.

11. There is also a therapeutic technique called EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) which also shows some good results with ADD / ADHD, depression, and others. It's written by Gary Craig.

12. Some have good results with NAET (Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Technique). However, the results were mixed, and Dr Nambudripad was disappointed with many practitioners who did not follow his technique carefully.

13. There is a system similar to NAET called Bioset. There's a book "Food Allergy Cures" by Dr. Ellen Cutler, who describes the use of Bioset to get rid of allergies. This can also be done at home because the book describes "How To". Check out your local library and see if they can order it for you, or you might be able to get it from Amazon.com. Google Bios.

14. Don't forget the very important way to cure all mental "illnesses". Helps solve "leaky gut syndrome" by cleaning the gut and by adding a good vitamin / mineral regimen. This should be the first step.

15. Finally, one of the oldest, cheapest and most effective "drugs" - magnesium! It has been known for many years as "soothing chemistry". In our culture, we rarely get enough and this deficiency can worsen many mental problems. It's safe to overdo it, like vitamin C, you just get diarrhea !. Magnesia Milk and Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulphate) are two very good products that are often overlooked today. For autistic children with ADHD in particular, try bathing with Epsom Salt. It helps a lot of children and adults. I prefer Magnesium Citrate daily for additional use. I got this from the Health Co-op mentioned above.

There is also a lot of free information on my "drbate.com" website, and you can get a free copy of the "Health Revolution" book by signing up for my free newsletter on the home page.
