Biomedical Treatments

The most rewarding part of my medical career has been helping kids lose their Autism diagnosis. It is my passion. I utilize cutting edge Biomedical therapies which seek to address the underlying mechanisms of illness that my patients with Autism suffer from. Many children have other systemic illnesses that need to be properly treated. It is a disorder of the immune system effecting the brain, gut, skin, growth and more.

At my clinic, success and relief have come from combining the best of evidence based medicine with clinical wisdom. While there are no guarantees, parents who are willing to think outside of the box can see great results and outcomes for their children, sometimes after the first visit.

Certain dietary changes and nutritional supplements can have a profound improvement for the child. Certain biomedical tests can reveal immune dysfunction, nutritional deficiencies, oxidative stress, inflammation, and toxic burden. Correcting these imbalances can bring improvements in the child.

The biomedical therapies offered at my clinic work alongside, and are not a replacement for, other effective traditional developmental therapies like ABA, speech, physical, and occupational therapies.

This includes treatments for Autism, PDD-NOS, ADHD, Childhood OCD, Anxiety Disorders, Seizure Disorder and others.

Special Diets including Gluten Free Casein Free (GFCF), Yeast Free (YF), Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), and others. (More information below.)

Biomedical Interventions for Autism Explained

This video is a very brief introduction for Biomedical Treatments.   See also video slide presentation of parent information from the MAPS Physician Conference.

There is wealth of information on biomedical interventions for autism on the internet. ARI (Autism Research Institute), TACA (Talk About Curing Autism) and Generation Rescue are excellent resources. In addition, I recommend several books, some written by physicians who have children or relatives with ASD.
