©2007. 3rd edition. By Jaquelyn McCandless, M.D. Written by an experienced physician who is the grandmother of a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), this book takes a biomedical approach toward the treatment of ASD. It is the author's view that children with ASD are medically ill, and that they can improve greatly by the proper diagnosis and treatment of their underlying medical condition. In this brand new third edition, the author discusses nutritional deficiencies, accumulations of toxins, vaccines, and the weakened immune system. She also describes in detail the specific biomedical treatments that she has implemented in her own clinical practice, including: gastrointestinal healing; utilizing vital nutrients; chelation therapy; methylation strategies; and hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). There is a specific chapter devoted to immunity, autoimmunity, and viruses, as well as a chapter that explores the latest developments in biomedical treatments, including: methylation; treating children with Actos to improve their immune status; using low-dose naltrexone for immunomodulation and mood in ASD; and the low oxalate diet. This book was written specifically for parents and professionals who wish to explore treatment for children with ASD through dietary, nutrient, and detoxification methods. (Softcover; 377 pages.)
