Biomedical Autism Intervention - Patience & Perseverance is the Key

A Biomedical Autism intervention Doctor Explains:

The implementation of biomedical therapies for individuals with an autism-spectrum disorder is process of both investigation and patience. The investigative part is determining effectiveness of a therapy versus another, and the patience aspect is critical because some therapies act more quickly than others, and learning to track progress both on a physical level and cognitive level is critical.

For example, for many individuals Methyl-B12 therapy can act very quickly with positive benefits seen in 4 to 6 weeks. Examples are better attention, more eye contact and more appropriate speech. Whereas, a treatment such as Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy - although it can be extremely beneficial - may take a several months before positive changes such as better language, more appropriate behavior, and improved immune function are recognized.

So, in order to implement biomedical autism treatments you have to be willing to try new remedies such as dietary changes, supplements, methylation support, detoxification therapy, etc. with your child, and be tenacious in tracking positive and/or negative changes to best determine which therapies help the most and which ones are ineffective.

This process is not always easy, and naturally overtime many parents will look back at the biomedical intervention they have done and know that positive things have happened - perhaps their child has more appropriate language, better awareness of their environment and are more engaging with family members, have improved behavior and less stemming.

What commonly occurs is that biomedical therapies will overlap and parents will be doing multiple therapies at once. You will reach a point where you're not quite sure what is working and what is not working. This is a natural trend in any health program and in most situations is unavoidable.

Biomedical intervention for autism-spectrum disorders is no different. At some point, many parents will start to back away from various treatments such as reducing supplement amounts or allowing for periodic gluten and/or milk consumption, etc. to see if any adverse reactions occur.

Every person is different and some individuals who have benefited greatly by biomedical intervention are able to handle less rigid programs without losing the positive gains that were made originally. Of course, this is very individualized and is done on a case-by-case basis. It is not uncommon to expect a few years of consistent and overlapping treatments to be in place before many individuals can have their program radically modified.

Don't let ANYONE tell you there is nothing you can do to help your child. Autism really is treatable! Start your child down the road to recovery from autism. Biomedical Autism treatments and therapies have resulted in many, many children improving - even losing their autism-spectrum disorder diagnosis.
