These are the EXACT steps I used for my daughter to go from severe, self-injurious, non-verbal autism to regular kindergarten(and used by 1,000+ parents and grandparents)

Are you healing your child from autism? Are you giving them supplements? Ever wonder if they actually do anything? Ever want to combine supplements? Do you think that changes what they do? If you ever wondered any of these questions then definitely watch week's Ask Dr. Lyons video! Lots of parents emailed me last week and asked what brand folinic acid would be good. I updated last week's post to include a great brand of folinic acid to discuss with your doctor. But that got me thinking...what would help you even more? Healing autism is about understanding your child's comorbidities and then specifically targeting them in efficient and elegant ways. This is of course most efficient when they are already eating a customized special diet...otherwise the supplements are only undoing the negative effects from the food. So this week's Ask Dr. Lyons video is about healing autism by targeting comorbidities, specifically cobalamin aka Vitamin B12. If you want to give your child a vitamin B12 supplement it does one thing in the body but if you give your child vitamin B12 and folinic acid together, synergistically it does something very different! And I summarize real clinical research data so you are confident that I am reporting facts.
Comorbidity is defined as the simultaneous presence of two chronic diseases or conditions in a patient. There is evidence of an association between various pathophysiological abnormalities and autism but the exact relationship has not been defined yet. Treatments for some of the comorbidities are well known therefore there is no reason for your child to suffer with certain comorbidities. There are 6 metabolic disorders that are commonly comorbid with autism and we will focus on cobalamin here.
Cobalamin is more commonly known as Vitamin B12. B vitamins are water soluble meaning they are excreted in urine if not used by the body. Vitamin B12 works closely with Vitamin B9 (folate) in many aspects in the body such as red blood cells synthesis, iron utilization. Reduced levels lead to increased micronucleus formation and reduced telomere length respectively (problems with DNA methylation). Folate metabolism is also a known comorbidity with autism and I go into those details here.
Many who are deficient in Vitamin B12 experience:
Fatigue or overall weakness
Inflammation of the tongue
Improvements in those with autism from Vitamin B12 are typically increases in speech and social interactions as well better sensory processing of the environment. Vitamin B12 supplementation targets improving methylation. Research has shown that blood levels of B12 are inconsistent as a group…both increased and decreased in those with autism. And it is common to see such variation of certain bioligical measurements that's why good scientsts keep asking questions. Another study found cerebral cobalamin to be more consistently deficient in those with autism. It's what the body does with molecules that are important to study too in order to find more consistent answers.
Many choose methylated Vitamin B12 shots (prescription from your doctor) although oral methylcobalamin can be used and is available without a prescription. Common side effect is hyperactivity. But combinations are advanced ways of healing autism and comorbidities. Here's some clinical research results that helps highlight what supplements and combinations do.
Glutathione influences detoxification, inflammation, immune response, transport of nutrients across membranes, and much more. So combinations of supplements do different things and it's important to understand that if your child's body is deficient in a nutrient and you start supplying it, your child's body chemistry does change. Supplements are best used only after your child is on a customized special diet otherwise the supplements are only targeting the damage being done by the wrong food your child is eating.
For those who have children who are picky eaters and eat only a few foods this is what can happen... Dietary vitamin B12 deficiency was identified as a cause of partially reversible optic neuropathy in 3 autistic children. All 3 children had severe food selectivity resulting in low vitamin B12 levels. Treatment with intramuscular vitamin B12 resulted in improvement of visual functioning in all 3 children. Food selectivity, a known complication of autism, can result in vitamin deficiency that can cause visual loss and optic atrophy. Please make sure your child is eating a customized special diet. It is the most efficient way to start healing autism and your child's comorbidities. For those who are looking for a good brand of oral B12: If you prefer to learn by watching then here's the YouTube video:
