Treatment for Autism and the Road to Recovery Clinic
There are many heartbreaking disorders such as Autism, Asperger's Syndrome, and Pervasive Development Disorder which affect children, and the biggest question facing parents is how the disorders will be treated. Treatment choices vary, but often concerned parents first dig deep into the research to discover which treatment path best suits them and their children.
For these disorders it is typical for conventional medicine to only prescribe therapies like Early Intervention, ABA, speech and language therapy and occupational therapy. They usually do not explore related comorbid medical conditions like immune system and autoimmune system dysfunction, allergies, gastrointestinal issues, environmental factors, diets, biochemical deficiencies or the critical methylation pathway defects. These associated issues are commonly overlooked by doctors because mainstream medicine believes that autism is a genetic or psychiatric disorder, not a medical one that has many physical and environmental components to its etiology that when corrected leads to partial or full recovery. This is what separates the Road to Recovery Clinic from conventional medicine in that these medical and biochemical issues are always explored.
The Road to Recovery Clinic believes that the initial diagnosis of autism does not have to be the final diagnosis, and does not believe institutional living is the final stop for autistic children. The clinic is a medical haven of hope for parents unwilling to give up on the future of their children. The clinic's success stories bring hope to parents who believe the lives of their own children can be improved.
Autism and related maladies are complex disorders for which a variety of major treatment options have been found to help heal the child. Effective treatment options employed by the Road to Recovery Clinic include painless subcutaneous methyl-B12 injections, diets and supplements, HBOT (hyperbaric oxygen therapy), healing the gastrointestinal tract, treatment of allergies, QEEG-directed neurofeedback, detoxification protocols and various types of intravenous therapies.
Before deciding on a course of treatment, Dr. Neubrander explores the underlying causes of each patient's problems by determining how the patient is the same as and different from all others who carry a similar diagnosis. He then orders the appropriate laboratory tests that will allow him to design a specific treatment regimen aimed at healing the underlying causes of the problem rather than just masking the patient's symptoms by prescribing pharmaceutical agents. Though masking symptoms with drugs brings quick relief, it is rarely a long-term solution and does not deal directly with eliminating the underlying cause of the symptoms. In addition, the drugs commonly used to treat the symptoms that are seen in children on the autism spectrum are often accompanied by side effects that can further impact the child in many negative ways. The goal of the Road to Recovery Clinic is to find long-term solutions and quality-of-life improvement for patients and their families.
For a deeper understanding of how various treatments are effective (click here and here). To have an even better understanding of what can happen for your child, you may wish to view any of the 100 plus videos where parents describe how the treatments used at the clinic have helped their child. There are videos that track children over the course of a year so you can see the changes that occur in that time period (click here). Videos of recovery and how treatments have impacted the lives of all family members are also shown (click here). And for those who doubt how indistinguishable from their peers a child can become, there is a video called "The Party" (click here) in which the challenge to the viewers is to spot the autistic children from the non-autistic children attending a birthday party play date.
If you talked to Dr. Neubrander, he would tell you is that after monitoring over one million methyl-B12 injections along with a well-planned and well-thought out course of treatment, his Road to Recovery Clinic has been able to help thousands of autistic children. Hundreds of those children had limited or no speech at all and their parents were given little to no hope that their child would ever be able to talk. Now those same children talk, many of them in a completely normal fashion. He would go on to tell you that many of the clinic's children have left their diagnosis of autism far behind them as they now live normal lives and participate successfully in regular classes in private or public schools.
Hope and help are available at the Road to Recovery Clinic.
