A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Asperger’s
I had a question the other day about Asperger’s.
Asperger’s syndrome is a type of pervasive developmental disorder (PDD).
PDDs are a group of conditions involving delays in the development of many basic skills, most notably the ability to socialize with others, to communicate, and to use imagination.
Although Asperger’s syndrome is similar in some ways to autism there are some important differences.
Children with Asperger’s syndrome typically function better than those with autism.
In addition, children with Asperger’s syndrome generally have normal intelligence and near-normal language development, although they may develop problems communicating as they get older.
Asperger’s syndrome was named for the Austrian doctor, Hans Asperger,who first described the disorder in 1944.
However, Asperger’s syndrome wasn’t recognized as a unique disorder until much later.
The symptoms of Asperger’s syndrome vary and can range from mild to severe.
The exact cause of it isn’t known.
However, it does tend to run in families suggesting a possible genetic link.
Asperger’s syndrome has only recently been recognized as a unique disorder.
Because of this, the exact number of people with the disorder is unknown.
While it’s more common than autism, estimates for the US and Canada range from 1 in every 250 children to 1 in every 10,000.
It’s 4 times more likely to occur males than females and usually is first diagnosed in children between 2 and 6 years of age.
Right now, there’s no cure for Asperger’s syndrome, but treatment may improve functioning and reduce undesirable behaviors.
To deal with Asperger’s it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily to hydrate and flush toxins.
*Ginkgo biloba is a powerful free radical destroyer that protects your brain. It also improves brain function by increasing circulation to your brain. Take it in capsule or extract form as directed on the product label, 3 times daily (don’t take if you have a bleeding disorder, or are scheduled for surgery or a dental procedure).
*Eat a high-fiber diet consisting of 50-75% raw foods, including large amounts of fruits and vegetables plus brown rice, lentils, and potatoes. For protein, eat beans and legumes, fish, raw nuts and seeds, skinless white turkey or white chicken breast, tofu, and low-fat yogurt.
*Eliminate alcohol, caffeine, canned and packaged foods, carbonated beverages, chocolate, all junk foods, refined and processed foods, salt, sugar, sweets, saturated fats, soft drinks, and white flour from your diet.
*Avoid foods containing artificial colors or preservatives.
*Avoid fried and fatty foods like bacon, cold cuts, gravies, ham, luncheon meats, sausage, and all dairy products except for low-fat soured products.
*Omit wheat and wheat products from your diet.
*Get regular moderate exercise.
*Use an elimination diet to test for food allergies, which can aggravate the condition.
*Have a hair analysis test to rule out heavy metal poisoning.
*Try to improve blood oxygen supply to your brain with deep breathing exercises. Hold your breath for 30 seconds each half hour for a 30-day period. This promotes deeper breathing and helps to increase oxygen levels in the tissues of your brain.
*Don’t go without food. Eating frequent small meals daily is better than eating 2 or 3 large meals.
*Consider liver and colon cleanses.
*Increase fresh air, sunshine, connect to nature, adequate rest.
*Ensure regular (2 per day) bowel movements.
*Decrease toxic exposures of all kinds.
*Become educated about all possible side effects and detrimental influences of any medications or treatment procedures you are taking or considering.
*Avoid MSG and artificial sweeteners as they’re neurotoxins.
*Explore dental amalgam toxicity.
