Thiamine: Chelation and Autism – Talk About Curing Autism (TACA)

(YOU MUST DISCUSS ALL OF THIS WITH YOUR DR. RE: efficacy and administration)

http://www.tacanow.org/family-resources/chelation-and-autism/

When you go to link: look under the “Chelators” heading you will see “TTFD” (Thiamine Tetrahydrofurfuryl Disulfide).

There is a form of Theanine called Allithiamine that a compounding pharmacy in Savannah, GA lists as one of their treatments for Spectrum kids.

I have read several studies that say TTFD had a noticeable therapeutic effect for spectrum children. Now that I’ve spoken to moms who have kids with severe Thiamine, or B-1, deficiency- the wheels are turning in my head and I’m thinking that there was a noticeable therapeutic effect for the kids administered this form of Thiamine- not only because it helps get the metals out, but because the kids truly had a deficit in this vitamin. Per the last article I posted it is very obvious how serious the implications are for brain health and certainly the fragile chemistry of our Spectrum kids if Thiamine (B-1) levels are deficient.

More info to come…PLEASE PLEASE send any questions on this my way!

Nutritional Brain Bomb: Thiamine Deficiency | Psychology Today

This is a basic article about what it means to have a Thiamine deficiency.
I have come across this issue several times over the last month. In the Spectrum community we focus a lot on the b-6, b-12 – but the other B vitamins are crucial.

I am sending some more detailed information to Spectrum families who request it (so if we have spoken about it-get excited,¬† I’ll have very comprehensive info to you soon & if we haven’t spoken about it and you want some info shoot me a Facebook message or e-mail me: rgoode.peaceinasd@gmail.com)

Below is a diagram that Dr. Buckley uses to explain the physiological aspects of ASD to her patients.

GSH stands for glutathione. ¬†This builds the foundation in repairing broken bodies- in need of detox, repair, and most importantly (if you ask me) is that you need glutathione to make DOPAMINE! ¬†Dopamine is the “good stuff” – ¬†Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that helps our brain produce feelings of pleasure, and reward.¬†

The Difference in Males and Females: Asperger’s Symptoms

I have a working theory that¬†¬†“treatment resistant” Depression/Anxiety/Bipolar Disorder in young women (middle childhood through early adulthood)¬†should be reconsidered- I think many of these women have Asperger’s.

Brain Immunity Storms contribute to ASD

AutismFreeBrain is an organization I am excited to learn more about.  Especially due to my interest in PANDAS, I am excited about their focus on immunity storms and the implications for Spectrum kids & mental health.

http://www.pandasnetwork.org

A foundation of their research:

Finding #1: Brain Immunity Storms (TM) damage behavior and language brain regions affected in ASD. During Brain Immunity Storms, two molecules (ATP & DNA) that should remain inside the mitochondria exit from triggered mast cells. Mitochondria were originally bacteria; when these molecules exit, microglia mistake them for attackers and fire continuously, damaging brain areas that regulate behavior and language.

Vaccines & The Age of Autism

Vaccines & The Age of Autism

Dan Olmstead is a respected journalist of the mounting research about the harm of vaccines. He takes a more pragmatic approach to his arguments- some of the writing on this topic has kind of a radical tone.

I get daily e-mails from Age of Autism- a daily web newspaper and Dan Olmstead is the editor.

Hi, my name is Robyn and I’m a NAC junkie.

Hi, my name is Robyn and I’m a NAC junkie.

Above is a link with great information about NAC from an organization called TACA- http://www.tacanow.org/. 

Dr. Buckley put me on the supplement PharmaNAC a couple months ago and I was hooked after my first dose. Not only does it taste great, but I felt the effects immediately- a clear head, and more energy!¬† This is great for tired parents and kids struggling with detoxification and immune system regulation. TIP:¬† Do your last dose by 3 in the afternoon, I’ve found that it increases my energy so much that it keeps me up at night if I take it too late.

PharmaNAC contains  900mg  of pharmaceutical grade N-acetylcysteine per effervescent tablet. It is utilized by the body to increase glutathione levels.  Glutathione, being one of the body’s most ubiquitous and powerful antioxidants and detoxifiers, is able to help strengthen your immune system and reduce  inflammation that may be found in the respiratory tract.- pharma-nac.com

 

The best way to get Pharmanac is to order it directly from Pediatric Partners of Ponte Vedra. E-mail supplement@pppvonline.com

I will include a lot more information from TACA in future posts!
