Developmental remnants are the developmental phases from ages two to four that your child still needs to complete. For example, shortly after your child turns two she should have developed to the point of being able to say more than 50 words, name most familiar things, combine words to make sentences, put on an article of clothing, brush her teeth and follow a two step verbal command. Many five-year old autistic children have not developed any of these abilities. Therefore, all of these would be developmental remnants.
Neurotoxins Can Cause Developmental Remnants
Our experience has caused us to believe that the development of autistic children’s brains may slow down, regress or become altered in some other way by neurotoxins that target and damage the brain. Typically, these developmental changes occur when the amount of neurotoxins accumulate to a level high enough to damage brain cells. Therefore, your child will age without developing through these developmental phases. Again, each phase that your child does not develop through will be considered a developmental remnant.
Developing Through Developmental Remnants
Our autism recovery program can help lower the level of neurotoxins in the brain and provide nourishment needed to heal the brain. The nourishments also help stimulate the body’s natural ability to produce stem cells. Once the level of neurotoxins such as mercury decrease, the stem cells can survive the brain’s environment. As such, the stem cells enter the brain and become new brain cells that can become new brain tissue. As a result, your child’s brain heals. The more the brain heals, the more developmental remnants the child will develop through.
Visualize the Developmental Remnants
You must understand what is happening in your child’s brain in order to see her blossoming into the person she was meant to be and truly become her best advocate. As you proceed, try to remember where your child was when the regression associated with autism began. Try to picture what it might look like for your child to begin moving through these developmental remnants at the age that they are now. Since the normal development of a three-year-old looks really different on a 5, 10 or 20-year-old, it will take a lot of imagination to learn to see what is happening to your loved one as he recovers from autism with Optimum Health. However, if you are truly going to be your child’s best advocate, you must learn to visualize what is happening so you can properly support the process.
