An Orthomolecular Approach to Autism

Autism Spectrum Disorder is a complex aggregation of physical, intellectual and biochemical disorders.

This presentation presumes that the initial clinical diagnosis has already been made and will highlight some of the measurable biochemical and organic disorders present and what can be done to rectify these problems.

I will present a logical, stepwise treatment protocol that helps the majority of recipients. Treatment strategies have been drawn from both the DAN and Pfeiffer Treatment Centre protocols.

Consideration is given to the following listed in the order

of treatment priority:

[1] Bowels and Diet

[2] Zinc, copper and the methylation cycle
