 Nutritional Supplements for Autism.
A Comprehensive approach
The aim of this article is to provide  information that will give the best chance of overcoming or at least ameliorating Autism of all types, including Asperger syndrome, and also possibly ADHD. Some cases of mental retardation may actually be cases of Autism. If you know of someone who is mentally retarded you may find this article linked here interesting
The suggestions are based on the observation by many nutritional therapists and concerned parents that Autism can be eliminated or considerably lessened with the application of the correct nutrients and supplements for a sufficient period of time.
Gathering together this information leads me to conclude Autism is a brain disorder caused by essentially the same group of chemical insults that leads to nerve degenerative disorders of adults. The obvious difference with the baby or child  to the adult is that the brain is not fully developed and therefore a different kind of disorder develops. In the adult, the same or similar group of chemical insults and diseases can lead to Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone disease and so on. For more Information on this topic see the article: The Causes and Treatment of Progressive Paralytic Diseases of the Nervous System with Emphasis on Multiple Sclerosis (Plus M.E. - Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue) For the article click here
The causative factors in Autism and these diseases mentioned above are as follows:
Heavy metal Toxicity

for more information on the subject click here

Mercury is most frequently the most potent neurotoxin involved. Mercury is often used as an ingredient in vaccinations, and by injecting many different vaccinations into a baby/child who's immune system and detoxification systems have not fully developed, who's brains are fragile and still developing is madness. So it is no wonder that many parents observe there baby /child deteriorating soon after vaccinations.
Another potent source of Mercury are dental fillings. These 'gas off' into the oral cavity and pass mercury fumes directly into the brain day and night, week in, week out.
If living next to or near to a field that is frequently sprayed the neurotoxic pesticides can aversely effect vulnerable adults and the young alike and compound any other neuro-toxins such as mercury.
Chronic Infections
Autistic Children frequently suffer from gut and digestive disturbances and often also suffer from Candida Infection
Mercury and other toxins can make a person susceptible to chronic infection, as can the use of anti-biotics that kill off the front line of defence of our beneficial gut bacteria. Chronic infections, be it Candida or other infections can then cause distress to the Immune system leading to a constant internal war where the bodies own immune system is on high alert and attacks the persons own internal stressed areas such as the gut and the brain. This will create an ongoing state of inflammation and ultimately tissue damage and could interfere with the  absorption of nutrients and the functioning of the brain still further.
There is a way out of all this. There are supplements that can eliminate mercury and other neuro-toxins,  and clear chronic infections. There are also supplements to help the brain function even in the presence of the insults described.
There are several remedies we can use to clear infections, For more Information click here but Iodine may stand out as the most expedient choice since it has a history of success in Autism and related disorders such as ADD, as observed (Also Iodine is needed for proper brain functioning and development).
Extract from the article Iodine Why We Need It
For the article click here
'From then on he treated his patients against Candida at the slightest indication of its presence. Many of his patients made remarkable recoveries from most unusual conditions including menstrual problems, hyperactivity, learning disabilities, autism, multiple sclerosis and auto-immune diseases such as Crohn's disease and lupus erythematosus.'
To Order Lugol's Iodine click here and also for full dose instructions. It is Important to raise the dose over a few weeks to the level that will wipe out infections.
Here are the suggested doses for the treatment of Chronic Infections if you select Lugol's Iodine for this task:
Amounts suggested are as per adult instructions but relative to body weight. Example: a child weighing four stone i.e. 25 kilos  is 1/3 the weight of a typical adult weighing 12 stone or 75 kilos, so divide the adult dose of 30 drops by 3 = 10 drops daily, or e.g. 3 drops a day for an 8 kilo baby.
Lugol's Iodine drops can be simply added to food or drink.
Auto-Immune Attack
As already suggested above the combination of heavy metal and other toxicities, chronic infections can put the immune system in a sate of high alert and encourage a constant state of inflammation in crucial areas of the body such as the brain and gut. Dealing with these issues as described in this article will eventually resolve these problems. You can lessen the degree of inflammation, and this in turn will aid nutrient absorption and speed the resolution of symptoms. To calm the immune system and reduce Inflammation the best herb to use is simply Liquorice. For more Information Click here.
As always capsules can be emptied and added to food or drinks.
Magnesium supplementation is suggested as this major element is so essential for the function of the nervous system and brain and can help the immune system to remove the toxins that need to be eliminated. For Article click here 

Other nutrients that are suggested are:

Vitamin B12 methylcolbalamin for brain cell function in the presence of neurotoxins, for article click here.
Sea Greens, MSM organic Sulphur and alpha lipoic acid combination formula know as Deep Cell Detox, for article click hereto help eliminate neurotoxins and mercury.
Selenium to help Iodine function and as an anti-oxidant, Ordering Information click here
Vitamin C for its success in helping Autism and as an aid to detoxification and immune function. Ordering Information Click here.
Vitamin D as basic support for nutrient assimilation and immune system, For article click here.
Immunocomplex: to provide broad-spectrum nutritional support  with food state nutrients including all the B vitamins, and crucially respiratory enzymes to restore Mitochondrial function. This is especially important. Chemical and infectious insults damage the functional ability of the Mitochondria, and one becomes trapped in a morbid condition as it is the Mitochondria residing in every one of our trillions of body cells that support the production of energy from the cell (ATP synthesis /Krebs Cycle ) and also the correct oxygenation of the tissues. In practice lowered Mitochondrial function means our internal organs and systems just do not have enough energy or oxygen to detoxify or function in a healthy way, Immunocomplex quickly restores Mitochondrial function, and as such is a major tool in restoring health, and detoxifying the body. For article click here
Even though Immunocomplex is a food state pro-biotic further help can be given to the digestive system by introducing a broad spectrum of bacteria via a rich 'super greens' combination base. This is Prime Biotic powder and can be added to food or blended with liquid foods. For more information click here
Cold Pressed Oils:
These are Very Important for the development and functioning of the brain. Only by giving full spectrum nutritional support can the best results be expected. You can use some Fish Oil capsules, but do not concentrate too heavily on these as they may contain some mercury as fish is contaminated. Hemp Oil is freely available in the high street in some countries e.g. UK and is the most balanced oil with good overall benefits.
