Families hit by cost of diet to help treat autism - "CALLS have been made for specialised dietary foods used as a treatment for autism to be made available on the NHS as parents struggle to cope with the costs. The wheat and dairy-free diet, which is increasingly popular with parents of autistic children, can send a family's shopping budget soaring as the products can cost up to 10 times more than standard alternatives," by Darren Devine - Whales

Lecture given on treating autism with biomedical therapy - Dr. Kurt Woeller of the Stillpoint Center for Integrative Medicine in Temecula gave a lecture on treating autism-spectrum disorders with biomedical therapies on August 30 at the Rivard House in Temecula’s Wine Country. More than 100 people attended the lecture, which was sponsored by the Early Education Center for Autism and FACTS Families. Since 1997, Woeller has been a referral physician for Defeat Autism Now, an organization of doctors dedicated to the biomedical treatment of autistic-spectrum disorders. Woeller said autistic-spectrum disorders are a medical condition and it’s crucial to treat them with biomedical therapy. “It’s totally false that there’s no hope for recovery,” he said. “I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t see kids getting better. I wouldn’t waste my time.”

Many Kids with Cancer Take Supplements - Doctors Not Told - Many children with chronic medical conditions such as cancer and cystic fibrosis may be taking dietary supplements that are not part of their prescribed treatment, a new survey shows.  The study authors say this is worrisome, because the safety of many supplements -- particularly when taken along with standard medications -- is unclear, by Amy Norton

Mercury hair tests now available - Should parents concerned about mercury toxicity rush out to test their children or their own hair for mercury? Not so fast, said David Kirby, author of a best selling book, "Evidence of Harm."  One theory is that children with autism may, in fact, have a genetic predisposition, that is tipped when they are exposed to mercury. These children may lack a protein that allows them to excrete mercury, thus, allowing it to damage their brains.  So while the children without autism may show higher levels of mercury in their hair, it may be simply because their body was more efficient at excreting it.  Also, it is not known where the child may have been exposed to the mercury, which can.orge from eating fish caught in mercury-contaminated waters or from other sources, such as dental fillings or flourescent lights.  The Sierra Club of Chicago recently tested hair samples at 10 local salons in the area, including one in Highland Park.

Study links autism to intestinal virus - A maverick British scientist who now works in Austin has.orgpleted a study on autism that links the disease to a novel intestinal illness. The research, to appear in the Journal of Clinical Immunology due out today, opens the door to testing treatments for some autistic children, including a diet that forbids dairy products and certain grains. Dr. Andy Wakefield, whose earlier work caused a furor by suggesting an association between a.orgmon childhood vaccine and autism, said he considers the latest research ground-breaking. The study by Wakefield and three collaborators identifies a new inflammatory intestinal disease in some children who appear normal but regress into autism, and suggests the intestinal disease is viral.

Study will examine if diet can ease autism symptoms - For years, parents of autistic children have seen a difference in how their kids behaved after they followed diets free of dairy and wheat products or that restricted their sugar intake. Their children were more alert and had better eye contact, they claimed. There was more social interaction and interest in the world around them. Whether there is any scientific basis to these claims will be tested in a three-year study beginning in November at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. It will look at the effectiveness of three alternative therapies: use of a supplement known as omega-3 fatty acid (the healthy oil found in some fish and flaxseed); a diet free of wheat and milk protein, and a diet that restricts sugar by Virginia Linn

The devil in their diet - Parents have long believed that artificial food colourings could cause hyperactive behaviour in children. Now, at last, scientists seem to have proved it, writes Geoff Watts.  Around 20,000 children have been diagnosed as having what is variously known as "hyperkinetic disorder" or "attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder" (ADHD). But some.orgmentators believe that the true number could be 10 times that.

"We each have our own way of living in the world, together we are like a symphony.
Some are the melody, some are the rhythm, some are the harmony
It all blends together, we are like a symphony, and each part is crucial.
We all contribute to the song of life."
