Autism was first described in the 1930′s but for decades was very rare and misunderstood. Doctors considered it a mental illness. Almost overnight, Autism has become an epidemic. We now understand that Autism is more than a problem within the brain. For many individuals, it IS NOT just a psychological or neuro-developmental condition with no hope for improvement or recovery.
The latest research identifies that autism is very complex and involves toxicological, neurological, immunological and gastrointestinal issues. When these underlying conditions are addressed, children often improve and have better quality of life.
