#13 Autism Help for Parents: Understanding the Autism Spectrum Disorders

In this episode of Simply Living Wellness, Donna Abreu interviews guest, Ynge Ljung, about getting autism help for parents by helping parents understand Autism Spectrum Disorders in children including Autism, ADD, ADHD, and Asperger, and the commonly unknown causes for these disorders, as well as commonly unknown treatments. These holistic treatments may not eliminate the disorder, but they certainly will improve the symptoms and side effects dramatically.  Ynge has seen this first hand, over and over again in her practice.

We cover gut health and common allergies, especially to foods, and other offenders that are overloading these poor children’s bodies, often causing the Autism and all the symptoms.  And let me tell you… you won’t hear this stuff from your child’s doctors. This topic is such an important one, because approximately 1 in 25 in the United States is on the spectrum. And… we are seeing the number of people with Autism double every five years.

This episode is for you, if you or anyone you know is suffering from Autism, ADD, ADHD, or Asperger and you have not had much success following the traditional treatment methods. This episode is for you, if you want to improve your condition and especially the common side effects that come with the spectrum disorders like seizures and an emotional rollercoaster causing anger and sudden outbursts.

Early on in her career, Ynge Ljung became a naturopathic medical doctor and treated people including autistic children for illnesses and disorders she often found to be caused by allergies.  She had good success, yet not with every patient, and therefore went on a quest to find better solutions.

Ynge discovered Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques (NAET) which improved her results significantly. But NAET is costly and very time consuming for the parents of these autistic children, especially the mothers, because of the frequent practitioner visits. Many people live so far from these NAET practitioners, and the visit costs add up quickly. She could see the struggle the parents would experience when raising an autistic child, which often led to divorce and the mothers being left on their own caring for their autistic child.

Ynge’s experience with NAET, however, led her to develop her own system, one that empowers parents to administer the protocol themselves in their own homes and one that is affordable. She calls this system The Allergy Kit.

What causes these commonly unknown allergies that exasperates the spectrum disorders?

Common allergies are caused from a weak immune system and poor gut health which is compromised by our diet and the everyday toxins and poisons in the food. The “Standard American diet” (SAD), truly is sad. In the average American diet, the SAD consists primarily of:

  1. Processed foods ladened with chemicals and stripped of nutrients
  2. Poisoned foods from GMO, pesticides and herbicides
  3. An upsidedown Food Pyramid that increases wheat consumption

It starts with poor gut health from over-processed foods that lack nutrients and good bacteria. The pesticides sprayed on our food in the United States are antibacterial, and therefore, destroy all the bacteria in the food, the good and bad. Genetically modified foods (GMO) changes the organic structure of the foods. We are left with food stripped of the beneficial properties and nutrients that are essential for a healthy gut. Our bodies are composed of 98% bacteria and pathogens, so we need that bacteria.

It’s common for people to be overweight and starving at the same time…

For many people, our bodies are literally screaming for nutrients. We are overtaken by cravings, we are hungry all the time, we eat all the time, and yet we can even suffer from obesity at the same time.

An unhealthy gut also leads to a slew of medical problems including many chronic conditions as well as food intolerances (allergies). The food we eat is therefore not properly digested and so large particles get through the fine lining in the intestines into the blood stream causing a condition known as Leaky Gut. The body attacks these particles since they are foreign and not meant to reside in the bloodstream. When these foreign particles appear in the bloodstream over and over, the body will form an allergy to these foods by creating an immune response to thm. One needs to take a break from the intolerant foods to allow the gut to heal, as well as replenish with the good bacteria by eating fermented foods and nutrient-rich foods. And… do everything possible to reduce environmental toxins.

98% of Autoimmune Disorders, Hashimoto’s Disease, Diabetes, and Thyroid Issues are Caused by Glyphosate…

Autism Spectrum DisordersOne of the worst offenders among the pesticides is glyphosate used primarily in the United States. Glyphosate-containing pesticides are sprayed on wheat a couple of days before harvesting. This spraying makes the leaves fall off the plant (hmm… I wonder why?) allowing for easier harvesting. It also fattens the wheat kernels supposedly increasing the harvest yield.

Is there really more wheat in the kernels? Or are we just filling them with glyphosate.

Spectrum disorder children are especially sensitive to glyphosate. They should rarely eat wheat for that reason. These reactions to wheat can include:

  • Desire for no eye contact
  • Seizures
  • Constipation which leads to more toxicity as toxins leak from the bowels
  • Emotional outbursts
  • Anger and frustration

Wheat also contains a protein called gliadin which turns into an opiate in some people and will literally get the child “high”. Casein in milk also has this property! It’s no wonder we all crave pasta, breads, cookies and dairy products!

Ynge tells us of one client, a young boy who was a very violent child, frequently chasing his parents around with a knife kicking and screaming. After treating this child with The Allergy Kit, this behavior has gone away, and he is now able to do work in school using his fine motor skills. He still has setbacks when he eats pizza, because he is ultra-sensitive to the glyphosate.

“Mommy, I feel like I’ve been living in an underground cave, and that I’m now coming out.”

Ynge believes that most gluten allergies are actually caused by the glyphosate in the wheat as opposed to the gluten. Her own hip pain went away when she stopped eating wheat, yet she could eat wheat products in Israel without any adverse effects. They don’t spray with glyphosate pesticides in most foreign countries.

Organic is the Way to Go. 

While there are still offenders in organic food, it’s much reduced. It is important to feed autistic children organic food as much as possible.

In this episode you’ll learn about dietary and environmental changes that will greatly improve your autistic child.

Autistic kids have severe breakdowns and emotional outburst, yet they don’t know why, nor do the people around them. People think the child is behaving poorly, when in reality it’s the poor diet and environmental factors are causing the problems. The intolerances affect spectrum disorder people more because they are already sensitive.

Parents put these children into speech therapy and behavioral therapy, put them on medications, yet nothing works, because their food intolerances and allergies are causing the side effects of the spectrum disorder, not their psyche.

Ynge also discusses other factors parents should be aware of including:

  • Amalgam dental fillings
  • Vaccinations
  • Allergies and food intolerances and how to treat them
  • Muscle testing for identifying allergies
  • EMF sensitivity
  • Losing the cravings
  • New cars, new carpet, paint, clothing and their contributions to your child’s health issues

Autism Help for Parents Using the The Allergy Kit

After seeing draatic improvements in her patients from the addition of the NAET, Ynge began researching this protocol further for allergy elimination. She went on to develop her own protocol, one that parents can use in their home and administer themselves as frequently as needed with no additional costs or practitioner visits. She calls the system The Allergy Kit.

The base Allergy Kit covers all the main offenders for any individual including wheat, dairy, vaccinations, and sugar. Parents may need to repeat this kit several times. Once round of treatments takes about 2-3 weeks of seven 15 minute sessions. Parents can then purchase additional kits or vials to cover other allergies as well as to address emotions their child may be experiencing.  Ynge’s suggests to parents of autistic children with emotional and behavioral issues an emotional treatment right before school each morning and then one after school to assist the recovery.
