Autism Causes

Autism Causes

Understanding autism causes is extremely important if you are going to be effective at assisting an individual diagnosed with autism.  Autism is caused by issues in the brain that often makes it hard to communicate with and relate to others.  Remembering involves recall. We have found that the brain tends to struggle with recalling things from the memory.  This means that the information is being stored correctly in the brain.  However, there is trouble with recalling the information back to conscience thinking in order to use it.  For example, a child may no longer be able to say the things the child was once able to say.  If the child can’t access the information, the child won’t be able to use it to learn.  So, learning stops because recall is no longer taking place as it should.  In some cases, the brain cells have actually been damaged and are unable to function properly.  This can prevent the brain from developing as it should and lead to issues identical to the ones seen in autism.  The logical questions that follows are…

What is causing the inability to recall information properly?

What is damaging the brain’s cells?

What really and truly is the root cause of autism?

At Optimum Health, we have only found one cause, the root cause…toxicity.  There are many substances that will enter the brain and prevent recall and even damage the brain’s cells.  What are they?  Mercury, arsenic and lead are three of the major culprits that can get into the brain and lead to symptoms identical to the symptoms of autism.  The facts are beginning to make this very obvious. Research on Mercury and Autism CausesResearchers have published many papers indicating that arsenic, mercury and other heavy metals are neurotoxins.  As such, these substances are widely accepted as toxic to humans, especially the brain.   It has been proven that arsenic and heavy metals such as mercury cause mental issues identical to autism and Alzheimer’s.

Though Optimum Health has been assisting families with their children for nearly 30 years, it is our last eight years of working with autistic individuals that has allowed us to recognize that most are stuck at the developmental age that recall issues and brain cell injury began.  Therefore, in most cases, the autistic individual has many characteristics of the terrible twos phase of development.  We try to help our parents recognize this as it helps them to understand their child’s behavior and how to deal with it.  Our parents receive a guide to the book “What to Expect: The Toddler Years” that helps them learn to see the two year old trapped inside their child.  We also help our parents answer the question, “What caused this to happen to my child?”

Mercury and Arsenic: Possible Causes of Autism

As research has established, both mercury and arsenic can affect the brain in a way that can lead to a diagnosis of autism.  Scientists have proven that mercury leaks out of the amalgam fillings and spreads throughout the body.  Sheep Scan for MercuryIt has also been proven that the mercury crosses the placental barrier and enters the developing baby.  This is why doctors currently encourage women not to eat a lot of seafood while pregnant. Unfortunately, doctors don’t tell women anything about how dangerous the dental amalgams (silver-colored fillings) are to their developing child.  In fact, children typically get exposed to mercury in their mother’s womb if she has amalgams in her mouth.  More exposure occurs if they are given seafood to eat and vaccines.  Exposure to arsenic typically occurs when eating a lot of rice and quinoa.

Patrick, Before and AfterIt is with this in mind that it only makes sense to see if each autistic child has a history of these exposures.  Then, test them for these two poisonous elements.   Finally, if any are present, remove them and see if your child changes.  This was Patrick’s case.  Removing these substances allowed him  and others to experience awesome autism recovery.  Click here on on the picture to learn more about Patrick’s autism recovery journey.
