As autism rates in children continue to rise--the latest studies suggest anywhere from 1 in 50 to 1 in 100 American children is autistic--parents are scrambling to find effective treatment methods The Natural Medicine Guide to Autism offers answers by exploring a range of effective treatment options and the possibility of a positive outcome via natural medicine therapies.

The book covers the basics of autism--what it is and what causes it--and the factors that are often involved in the disorder: heavy metal toxicity, nutritional deficiencies/imbalances, food allergies, digestive problems and fungal overgrowth, viruses or viral overload, immune dysfunction, problems in the birthing process, energetic legacies from unresolved family issues in previous generations, and vaccines. It also covers a range of natural medicine treatments, including elimination diets, listening and learning skills, nutritional supplements to correct imbalances, cranial osteopathy to reverse birth trauma, and many more.

A chapter is also devoted to the deeper question of what makes a child susceptible to autism. Included in this discussion is the work of William J. Walsch, PhD, whose research may well have pinpointed the genetic component of autism that has previously eluded scientific inquiry.

This book is a good overview of many of the alternative health and natural treatments for autism. She has three chapters that discuss what autism is, how it's diagnosed, theories on causes and contributing factors, and of course the vaccine and mercury controversy. These chapters were interesting, but the meat of the book are the chapters that discuss natural medicine treatments for autism including:
* Targeted Therapeutic Nutrition and Heavy Metal Detox-This involves a 24 hour urine analysis, digestive enzymes, nutritional supplementation, protease enzymes to clear the immune issues that cause food intolerances, and healing the gut with specific nutrients.

* NAET: Allergy-related autism-They focus on releasing the allergy to a certain group of foods on each session, and then you have to completely avoid them for 24 hours. I remember the day we had to stay away from vegetables and fruits, what a nightmare. Plus, we saw no improvement in symptoms.

* Biochemical Therapy -This chapter focuses on metallothionein, and the Pfeiffer Institutes protocol of supplements that work to get it working again.

* Homeopathy: Constitutional Treatment, Vaccine Clearing, and an alternative to vaccines-This was my favorite chapter! I've read it several times, and each time learned something new. They talk about several homeopathic approaches to autism, all quite different, but with histories of success.
I was especially excited to read about one homeopath who used an LM potency of pertussis nosode to counteract the damage done by the DPT vaccine. LM potencies are much less likely than other potencies to make symptoms like seizures worse. There is no LM potency homeopathic remedy made from the DPT vaccine and since it doesn't exist anymore, one can't be made. Using the nosode from the disease itself is the best plan B available. Most people believe that the pertussis portion of that vaccine is the part that did the neurological damage.
I don't completely agree with the author on the subject of using homeopathic nosodes to prevent that disease. There is research that indicates this does not work. I do agree that homeopathy can be used prophylacticly, you have get the proper remedy (not the disease nosode) and it has to be taken when the outbreak occurs not years ahead according to the current vaccine schedule.

* Cranial osteopathy -Seeing an osteopath really helped my son when he was sick. It kept the mucous moving and prevented the normal ear infections that are so common with severe allergies.

* Soma Therapies: Structural, Functional and Emotional Release
* The Tomatis Method: Listening and Autism
* Neural Therapy, Toxic Clearing, and Family Systems Therapy-I didn't like this chapter. One of the therapies they used is to inject anesthetics into different areas of the body to release trauma and energy blocks. On one child they did a "crown of thorns" which is a ring of injections around the skull. That doesn't sound very natural to me.
I have a lot of books on treating autism, this is one of the better ones.

This is a good book for parents as an overview of alternative treatments for ASD children. Note, it contains some approaches not all approaches of alternative medicine. I would sincerely recommend this book but if you are a parent looking at all alternatives, including Children with Starving Brains by Dr J. McCandless as well. These two books will provide you all the information you need in evaluating next steps with a good, thoughtful, forward thinking doctor.

Great nutrition thinking in this book--worth the read!

Stephanie Marohn's books on mental health issues are all excellent and this one on autism is a good starting place for anyone wishing to find out more about Autism and how to effectively treat it. One challenge in writing this book was that there are multiple factors contributing to the development of autism, and the most prevalent factors happen to be iatrogenic - standard medical practices that cause illness. A recent study survey in 2 Western states showed that children who were vaccinated were more than twice as likely as their unvaccinated peers to have autism and other developmental disorders. The medical establishment and those indoctrinated by the cult of modern medicine don't want to acknowledge that they are causing unneeded harm to millions of people. There are financial and psychological reasons why many people won't face that reality. Thus, Marohn's book looks honestly at those issues and quotes doctors who oppose vaccinations and certain unnatural child delivery practices. One has to accept the validity of the factors cited in the etiology of autism to appreciate how the treatments discussed in the book work. A spectrum of treatments is explored (and the focus is on the most cutting edge and effective approaches, not the more mainstream approaches that most people investigating the subject already have exposure to). Most children will benefit immensely from a combination of the approaches discussed in this book. There is a growing body of evidence to support many of these approaches and much evidence that standard drug therapies cause a variety of side effects and impairments. Wouldn't it be logical to try the natural approaches first? Well, much of modern psychiatry and allopathic medicine are concerned more about conformity to dogma than using critical thinking and sensibly looking at all options. Stephanie Marohn looks at nutritional therapies, allergy clearing, osteopathy, homeopathy, sound therapy, and even family therapy and shamanic type interventions to help resolve issues contributing to autism. That's a lot better than just giving a child drugs, external behavior manipulation, and hiring someone to make sure the child gets physical and social stimulation (typical conventional approaches to autism). While this book doesn't cover every alternative therapy or go into great depth on each topic it discusses, it offers a good overview of the types of treatments that are working and it explains them in a clear manner. At present this is the ideal book for people looking to begin to understand autism and how to treat it - it's time to look beyond the DSM (the psychiatric diagnostic and statistical manual) and learn to really help those with developmental impairments.

Being a parent of an autistic 14 year old, this book has been a lifesaver. We are doing one of the options that is listed in the book after much research. The book triggered an option that we have not considered before. Our son has been aggressive since starting puberty. The natural medicine alternatives is allowing us to wean him off his medicines. I have been a PICU nurse for 22 years and believe in the medical field. As a mom who has tried everything, I believe in the alternatives especially if they work. All medicines have untoward side effects and never a cure. I wish this book was written ten years ago when our son was young for him to have a chance of full recovery. A must read book for everyone with a child with autism.

Do not buy this book; it is pseudoscientific garbage. You might as well believe in creationism or supply-side economics. The author is spreading false cures to autism. She invokes Andrew Wakefield as an authority, unaware he has been absolutely discredited. This is cruel, false hope--it should never have been published. Pure quackery.
