Healing the Gut – The Cornerstone of Bio-Medical Treatment for ASD
A healthy digestive tract provides a finely tuned barrier between the intestines and our blood stream. It allows proper nutrients in, and keeps the things we don’t want, yeast, bacteria, and large particles that can cause allergies and autoimmune problems out. It provides a majority of neuro-transmitters for our brain, and removes toxins from our system.
There are a many potential causes for damage to the GI tract, from gluten and casein, vaccine injury, yeast and bacterial overgrowth, antibiotics, and more. Many times children have not acquired the proper mix of beneficial intestinal bacteria needed to protect and establish the proper balance of microorganisms at birth, causing increased susceptibility to illness including autism. The problem of intestinal permeability aka “leaky gut” once established is a negative feedback loop, and the only way to stop the cycle of inflammation in the GI tract is by an elimination diet, and addressing imbalances to intestinal ecology by introducing beneficial microbes and removing pathogenic yeast and bacteria.
This endoscopic picture of the intestinal tract invaded by an overgrowth of Candida is a vivid example of how an overgrowth of yeast can cause severe problems with both absorption of essential nutrients needed for normal development and also an enormous toxic burden from by-products such a condition creates.
Fortunately, by balancing intestinal ecology and healing the gut, our children’s health and function improve. Autism specialist Catherine Masha, RN reports, “I have seen tremendous improvement to children’s digestion and learning and behavior when using Biocidin, a natural anti-microbial formula along with diet and probiotic supplementation to address overgrowth of yeast and bacteria.”
I was happy to hear from Jenny McCarthy at Autism One that she “loves, loves, loves, it” and that Evan has been using Biocidin with “great results”. She uses both the liquid version and Biocidin Throat Spray for herself as well as Even to keep healthy with such a demanding schedule.
Any parent with a child that has yeast and bacterial overgrowth knows how the digestive difficulties, pain, mood swings and tantrums their child suffers with are heartbreaking and exhausting. Using the Bio-Medical approach and natural treatments for yeast and bacteria gives tremendous relief, with results being seen in as little as a few weeks. Only a small amount of Biocidin is needed, 1-2 drops per 10 lbs body weight per day, so 1 bottle lasts 3-6 months making it very affordable. The taste is pleasant, and it can be mixed into any food or beverage.
