DMG & TMG – life changing for some with ASD

Thought I would give a “shout out” to two of my FAVORITE supplements. The supplements that made a huge impact in my sons life.  The supplements that made me say, “Wow this biomedical stuff is actually working.”

Keep in mind, Anthony only had a hand full of words before we started DMG and TMG.  And before that, he only started keeping words after we started him on a probiotic. (I will discuss that in another post)

First off, what is DMG?

”  DMG consists of the amino acid glycine attached to two methyl groups, according to physician Ray Sahelian, who specializes in natural supplements. The synthesis of many substances in the body depends on methyl groups, and DMG is important for the synthesis of DNA and RNA, the essential nutrient choline, the essential amino acid methionine and certain vitamins, hormones, neurotransmitters and enzymes.

Proponents of DMG supplements claim it enhances the immune system, boosts neurological function and athletic performance and helps treat epilepsy and autism, according to the MSKCC. Sahelian calls DMG an anti-stress supplement that may have anti-aging effects, ”  Read more here

What is TMG?

TMG is an important cofactor in methylation, a process that occurs in every cell of mammals to synthesize and donate methyl groups (CH3) for other processes in the body. These processes include the synthesis of neurotransmitters such as dopamineserotonin. Methylation is also required for the biosynthesis of melatonin and the electron transport chain constituent coenzyme Q10.  Read more here

All very confusing right?  Well, let me put it this way.  DMG and TMG help with methylation.  With 90% of our kids on the autism spectrum having issues with methylation, which usually result in speech or sensory processing issues, DMG and TMG are great supplements to try.  Especially since they have been reported to have a 50% success rate for ASD kids.  (read about that here) 

Now let me tell you about our experience with DMG and TMG…..

When we first started seeing Dr. Sletten (Our DAN doctor.) he started Anthony on methyl b-12 injections, hoping it would help with Anthony’s speech and stimming behaviors (toe walking, drooling, repeating words, head dragging. )

When we started them I didn’t see instantaneous results.  His stimming behaviors actually got worse, and boy was he hyper.  But Dr. S told us that this is very common when you first rev up methylation, especially in a kid that is lacking in the process. So we stuck with it.  (You can watch a video of how Anthony was behaving   here.  I only post this because I want parents to realize where a child can be with only 1-2 months of treatment, and how much better it can get. Watch the video I link to at end of post).

However, when Anthony’s OAT’s test result came back (NutrEval), Dr. S believed Anthony needed more than methly b-12 injections.  He believed that the supplement DMG would be more beneficial.

When we started DMG, we again saw the increase in stimming behaviors, and hyperness.  But this time, when they went away, Anthony had a word explosion! That word explosion all the mothers talk about happening to their children at 18-24 months old… well, DMG triggered that for Anthony at 3 1/2 years old.  Even his speech therapist was a witness to it.  Every word we said, Anthony could attempt.  It was during this time, that we started to witness his drooling subsiding.  A stimming behavior that Anthony always did when he was excited or nervous.

A few months later it was obvious that the DMG was working.  We were seeing amazing changes in Anthony’s speech and his attention span.  We also saw a new awareness in Anthony when it came to temperature.  It was as if for the first time in his life, he could feel cold and warmth.

This was the DMG Anthony was given:

When we told Dr. S about all the new changes, he believed that moving Anthony up to TMG might help even more, since Anthony was obviously a responder.   Again we had the two weeks of hyperness and stimming behaviors (the drooling came back) but then Anthony’s speech took another huge jump, about a month after we put him on the TMG.  He started talking in sentences! And again, his speech therapist was a witness to the big change and was amazed.  Anthony was saying sentences like, “Read me book mommy” , “Mommy, sissy needs bunny”, ” I love Super Why”.  Yes, this was a huge deal!  Especially for a child that was completely non-verbal a few months earlier.   

This is the TMG Anthony still takes:

We started Anthony on DMG in October of 2010, and by February 2012, Anthony was therapy free. With only a little over a year of bio-medical treatment.

Increasing methylation has been a huge part of Anthony’s recovery, and every day when I give Anthony his TMG, I look at that bottle and I know it is one of Anthony’s “silver bullets”.

A pic of Anthony with his cousin Sierra. “Sierra” use to be one of Anthony’s stimmy words he would repeat to calm himself.

If you watched the video I posted a link to above, then I urge you to watch this one, taken a month ago.  The change is amazing! (sorry about the quality)

If your child is still non-verbal, or stalled out with healing, I highly suggest you talk to your doctor about methylation, and the options that are available.  And of course, ALWAYS talk to your doctor first before starting a new supplement.  They are the ones that can tell you the exact dosage your child should be receiving for the best outcome, and if a new supplement is beneficial for your child’s unique situation.

    What dosage/frequency do you use? I have been using with my 2-yr-old girl. I am using one per day, wonder if I should be doing more.

    Anthony was 3 1/2 years old when we started him on DMG. We gave him 1 tsp of DMG every day, and when we moved up to TMG we did 1 tsp of that as well until we switched to the capsule He gets one every day. Both were at 500mg. But speak with your childs dr about dosages and if you should do more.

    Heather, We did do MB12 shots with TMG for awhile. Then our DAN suggested we stop the shots and see if Anthony did well with just the TMG. He did seem to do okay. Now we have him on a TMG that has MB12 and folinic acid in it. Kimberly

    Hi Kimberly,

    I cried watching your childs progress! It is amazing and I am so happy for you and Anthony. He is such an adorable boy in your videos. My son is 3.5 yo. I am not testing him for anything, but I did start the DMG without any doctors. I am a pharmacist. I read a lot. And I also found that due to very minimal side effects and the fact that excess gets excreted and doesn’t build up, the risks are not there. My question is the hyperactivity due to DMG. I am finding my son a little more hyper than usual. Does that go away with time? Did you ever have to lower the dose to reverse the hyperactivity. And also when you did DMG, did you also have him on folic acid? thanks so much.

    Hi Kimberly,

    Thank you so much for that information. I think these days 23andme test will be difficult to do as it won’t come with an interpretation. And unless I find a biomed doctor in the area, the results won’t mean anything to me. But as far as DMG effectiveness, would you say about a month on it would show us if we are responders or not. My son has been on it for 3 weeks; and as you have advised above, the hyperactivity did go down within 2 weeks, so I’m happy about that. But, I did notice some improvement with awareness and a desire to talk all the time. Now, I can tell he wants to talk but the clarity of understandable words is not there. I know its too much ask, but do you think i should keep him on it for another couple of weeks before I take him off of it? I read not to dismiss it before a month or two even if there is no noticeable difference. Thank you so much for all the help/info you can offer.

I assume you don’t recommend starting any supplements before seeing a doctor first. Where do I start and what is a DAN doctor? what is organic acid test and where can I take my son to get tested? any guide is truly much appreciated thank you.

    Hi Kimberly,

    Great blog. I found your site as I have used the same hopmeopath you used. It sounds like our sons have similar issues. Biomed has been great for us, and OCD and ADD and some gross /fine motor skills are what I’m now trying to clear. My cranial osteopath recently commented that a physical burn trauma my son had when he was young contributed to some of his issues. When I saw that homeopathy helped with with you, it made me decide to revisit it. It didnt initialy dawn on me that homeopathy could clear a trauma until I read your blog.

    Also, I am considering trying DMG and TMG for his OCD. My question is are you meant to give both supplements together, or do you give DMG first then move on to TMG and the drop DMG. It sounds like TMG is the supplement you are giving now and not DMG any longer. Just wondering why that was your case.

    Thanks for all the inspiration

      “Many of our readers deal with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Would you please summarize the role of histamine in OCD.

      Dr. Walsh: More than 90% of OCD patients are undermethylated with low neurotransmission at serotonin and dopamine receptors. In addition, many have low activity at N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors.
      For years we have used whole blood histamine as a laboratory marker for methylation status. Another good lab test for methylation status is the SAMe/SAH ratio test offered by Doctors Data, Inc. Neither of these lab tests is perfect, but they are more reliable than present genetic testing for determining if a patient is undermethylated, overmethylated, or in the normal range.”

    Hi Kimberly,

    I’ve asked a couple of questions in the past and you were great and oh so right in your answers and guidance. We have been on DMG for a month now, and hyperactivity definitely went away within first 2 weeks. By now, I do see that he wants to communicate more but unfortunately its only in 1 to 2 word demands, although some therapists have been commenting that he’s definitely communicating better ( they are not aware of him being on DMG). I do notice a tremendous progress in sensory. He’s more open to more textures and seems less fearful to try new physical activities. So I thank you for your previous answers, and I thank God I found your blog as I was searching for info on DMG. It really has helped me on my DMG journey as I’m not currently with any biomed doctors. My question now is, when in your opinion should I move up to TMG at this point? Considering our progress, I think we are responding to DMG well. DO you think its time to move to TMG? and also, do you think I can find TMG liquid alone without B12 and folinic acid? I’m scared to give him those without blood work. Thank you so much for everything. I’m so grateful for your comments. Angelica.

    Does is specifically mean anything if they respond to DMG? I mean does it mean anything? I had started my boy on Liquid DMG 1 month after he got diagnosed, I didn’t see any improvements till I increased his dosage and it was amazing but we have stop now with the DMG. We’re in the process of doing MTHFR (I think thats the correct term) testing as well.

    Hi Kimberly,

    Which probiotic would you recommend at this time for us? I have had my 3.5 yr old son on threelac. Its a great product and helps a lot with candida. And in the beginning it did help a lot! But now, I feel like I could get away with a regular probiotic, no need for this one. (It’s expensive and has sugar content I don’t care for). Kirkman has their gold standard product I believe called biogold. Do you know anything about it? Thank you for your time and help.

    Thanks for this blog, it’s really useful. My son is four and a half and mildly autistic: his main problem is speech delay and occasional behavioral issues. I started him on B12 Methyl before he was three and that’s when he started the first words. He’s come on to sentences since then, but a month ago I started him on DMG after reading this blog. I have to say his echolalia has gone and he is speaking longer sentences and understanding more every day. I didn’t notice the initial increase in hyperactivity, though. I will keep with it until we finish the bottle and start on TMG and see what happens. In the meantime we are also doing ABA therapy and homeopathy (carcinocin 30c). Basically I am reading as much as possible and trying almost everything. I am really hoping my boy will be fine by the time he starts school next year.

    Thanks for your comments. Just finished the bottle of DMG today and moving on to the TMG tablets and see what happens. I am also sending off the DNA sample to see if there are any issues. Can’t believe they dont’ do this in the UK, it is such a straightforward test! Hope to get the results soon and will keep you posted.
    So far Ethan has responded well to DMG and also to the Carcinosin (in very low potency, only 30c): his pushing and hitting has gone down a lot to almost never (it was never aggressive in the first place, not done with any force, but still unsettling for other children of course) and I think the Carc helps with that. I found that the time of taking the homeopathic remedy can affect the effects: if he takes it first thing in the morning, rather than mid-morning, the effect is more evident (Ethan much calmer all day).

    Hi my name is Tigist. I have a 3 year old son Yosef and he does not speak yet. He is also very active child, meaning very energetic and constant movement. I have tried SPEAK NOW oil and that has not worked. A distant friend of mine asked me to try TMG and DMG especially to help him calm. I have used Epsom salt and that did not work. He is also receiving speech therapy but no change or improvement has been seen from that either. Please help!!!

    Hello Kimberly,

    My son has been recently diagnosed with ASD last May he was 21 months old. Can you let me know the process of giving DMG and TMG ie..dosage, when to switch to TMG etc.?

    He is a happy baby but just babbling and lacks focus/attention. Doesn’t look whenever his name is called although good eye contact. He likes to watch me whenever I sing.

    Doc said he is very delayed in social and language….He is on OT as well.

    He is on supplements now like: Kirkman Children’s Chewable Multi-Vitamin/Mineral, Natural Factors, Vitamin D3 Drops for Kids, Wakunaga – Kyolic, Kid’s Kyo-Dophilus and Nordic Naturals, Children’s DHA,

    I would love to try DMG and TMG! :)

    Ethan has been on the TMG for over a month now and we can see another little jump forward with his speech. Unfortunately I have too re-do the DNA test, because the saliva sample was not enough and I cannot get Ethan to spit in the tube at the moment! I was wondering if a pro-biotic supplement would also be beneficial? Ethan has no digestion problems or any other health issues, but because he won’t eat any fruit (except in smoothies or fresh fruit juices) his breath does smell a bit metallic at times and I wonder if a pro-biotic supplement might improve his behaviour. He is already taking TMG and Omega 3 and 6 supplements, as well as homeopathic remedies, so I’m not sure adding something else would not be too much…

    Hi Kimberly,

    I had my son on TMG for few months until I started noticing that he has become too hyper. Like not like in the beginning of therapy he was hyper and then within 2 weeks he calmed down. ..this was like it was not going anywhere :( As if he’s changed, his personality changed, he became a different child. His awareness increased though, and sensory improved tremendously, but I could not tolerate him.. I could not take him anywhere…he became like a little hyper cub, running around, screaming, etc…I decreased TMG to half a teaspoon daily, and it brought him back :))) His sensory remained unchanged since the improvement, and the speech improves little by little. My question is, looking at my description of a very unusual case, would you say that he does not need TMG? I have not done the testing and I don’t really plan on it. But from the above presentation, what are your thoughts? Does he present like someone that did benefit from TMG? or should I just stop it. Looking at your child, TMG completely treated him…I don’t see that with my son, I see very little improvement here and there…almost like a coincidence that he started improving at the time I started TMG. Thanks for your opinion.

    Oh WOW…you are absolutely right! He was doing much better on DMG!!! Thank you so much, I am sitting here now and remembering how well he was doing and no hyperactivity AT ALL. I will try going back to DMG…after I figure out if half a dose of TMG and a full dose of DMG might bring similar results? Technically, I am giving him half a tsp of TMG now, but I used to give him a full dose of DMG… So not sure if it makes sense to switch back if I cut the dose. Thank you again for a great point! and your reply.

    Hi Kimberly,

    I saw a developmental pediatrician and inquired about the importance of genetic testing for proper treatment. She informed me that the genetic testing will just show the mutations so that if I wanted to have another baby for example I would be aware of the possibilities. But as she stated there are no possible treatments according to the mutations found. I know you promote testing, but do you think that there is at least a slight chance that it might have been a coincidence in your case that TMG helped not necessarily because of the mutation.? Just wondering.
    Thank you

    Hello, me again! Just to say that Ethan is still on TMG, but is now on 2 capsules a day instead of one (that’s the max dosage recommended) and he continues to improve. I increased the dose when I realised his speech had plateaued a bit, but with the current dosage he’s improving still. He now answers questions more readily, especially the wh- questions, although ABA also helps with this.

I am only beginning to look into homeopathic treatment as my son is 4 and we are still struggling with ASD symptoms although on DMG, SuperNuthera, probiotic, and omega 3 and 6. I feel like we ‘ve been getting better and better and now the progress just sort of stalled. No improvement in speech or behavior.:( Please direct me if you discuss homeopathy anywhere on the site or elsewhere. Thanks so much as always,

    Also, Tmg capsule you have been giving your son, was he able to swallow capsules right away? or did you have to open them and add to food/drink? can these be opened and mixed into food if my son can’t swallow yet?

    Hi Kimberly,

    I’ve been reading some of the other mom’s responses to your blog, and I found Giovanna’s interesting…My son is now 4 and half as well, and I started him back on TMG but this time TMG with folinic acid and B12. And I find that he s not at all hyper on it probably due to folic acid. The plain TMG was not tolerable at all. He was very hyper on it, I had to take him off. I am seeing now that this particular mom moved her son up to 2 capsules a day. And I wanted to know if that has been helping her child. Is there a way to ask her that through contact information? I was wondering if you could ask her that for me:) Thank you so much. I haven’t heard anyone trying 2 caps a day, so I’m interested to find out if she found any benefit and if the hyperactivity was noted with the higher dose.

    Hi. My son recently turned four. He’s non verbal and had been on DMG since March this year. I can say it had helped him calm down and he’s not so hyper active anda bit more attentive. However, that is all. He still has not speech, just makes funny sounds, no babbling, not potty trained, cannot eat himself etc. I am thinking of getting him TMG as well. Unfortunately, we dammit afford getting him tested but he was diagnosed with autism January this year. Can he use DMG and TMG at the same time, because there was a time he ran out of DMG and the tantrums and crying came back?thank u’ve tunics

    Hi Kimberly,

    My son is taking Kirkmans DMG 125mg for the past one year.Our doctor has prescribed only 1 tablet. He has improved a lot in terms of sleep pattern, making lots of sounds, understands what is being said to him, non verbal oral and motor imitation, but still non we have increased it to 2 tablets, but no improvements, he does not even call mom, dad,etc no verbal imitation also.
    Does it not benefit all kids or is it because the dosage given is less. I understand that your son was given DMG with 500 mg strength.

    Thanks and regards,

    I guess all the information given in your link is completely new to me.

    Can you please tell me which country you are from.I’m currently in UK and I would like to know if a similar doctor who can do so many tests and find out the right medicine for my son is available here as well.
    Unfortunately my Indian doctor just tested for lead,mercury,serum iron and vitamin D,MRI scan of brain,EEG and thus prescribed these medicines.

    When my son take DMG, the “hyper” how many days it takes on average? my son is “hyper” and “stimming” beats several times palms. By its esperiência, which causes more likely a child is”hyper” and “stimming” ? would be yeast or other factor? DMG helps the child who is “hyper” and “stimming? thank you for your attention.

I’m from Brazil, and here is no medical DAN! step nights and early mornings researching, everything about the Biomed because I see that is the best alternative for my son. I am very happy to know that your child is cured. Glory God!

    I am very interested in starting the DMG. My daughter started Mb12 but it does make her stimmy. I stopped it because I thought she was too hyper. I am thinking I should start it back and give it the 7-10 day test and if I see improvement then I should continue and start the DMG. She has very good speech but its mostly echolia. Just a tiny bit purposeful. She will say SNack and bath, that is about it!! She has terrible sensory issues so i am excited to start the DMG and see if those subside. I have recently started Zinc and am seeing amazing gains with it as well!! Thank you so much for sharing your story!! Your son and daughter are beautiful by the way!!

    Hi. At the back of the Rosedale diet book there is a list of sups, among them dmg and tmg, to restore severe insulin resistance and lower homocystein. When you treat insulin resistance, thyroid hormone resistance, leptin resistance then these things…hormones, chemicals, as you will, stop simply pooling in the blood causing mayhem (and perhaps Stims and hyperactivity and other wackiness) and inflammation is reduced and metabolically ( I think methylation is metabolic, no?) things come online again….found this interesting and thought you might too. The other thing I found interesting, not from dr. Rosedale, is that Protozoa or other parasitic infections can really raise homocystein and histamine, big time. Apparently, Protozoa like giardia lambia and others can be in you, you are a symptomatic, but they drive your histamine way up. If Anthony has these greater needs for tmg right around full moons it is something to think about for the whole family. It took me years to figure out/ make an educated guess, why my daughter flew off the autism spectrum on a few months of Zithromax and Alinia, and never went back. Her brother was not as lucky, but he is Lyme, confections, and mycoplasma. She was simply Pandas and Protozoa. Sometimes the dilly an isn’t actually treating yeast it is assisting with Protozoa. Dr. Flannels in Woodland Hills Skypes and I don’t know what tests he uses to find out if Protozoa is part of the switch keeping histamine high, but I do know many believe in epigenetics…maybe things don’t have to be for life, but only a later 23and me test would show if the switches do flip. I am in Puerto Vallarta Mexico btw. Where did you move? I love your blog, you have helped my son, and Dr Sletten might end up being our DAN as its only a two day drive to LA. We have a big house yard pool and guesthouse here…your family has a permanent invite, anytime, if you need a cheap vacation and escape from the cold. The guesthse has its own private entrance and huge deck with jungle man views. Happy new year!

    Thanks to your blog, I decided to start DMG at 125 mg a day for my son (age 5). Wow! He is getting stellar comments on his daily school reports that come home. I am going to ramp it up to 250 mg this weekend and see what happens. Methyl b 12 shots never did a thing for him so I assumed that he did not need methylation support. Obviously, I was wrong.
    We are also doing a major parasite protocol and that is helping tons as well. Thanks for sharing the insights you have gained!

    Hi, Just wanted to let you know that I saw another big increase in language when we got to 500 mg DMG. Actually, more than language — more interaction and a noticeable reduction in my son’s incessant need to bounce on his giant ball. It’s funny but the change has made it harder for me to get stuff done around the house because he constantly wants to play with me and help me cook, etc. Before DMG, he just bounced and bounced and left me alone. Yesterday, he said he wanted to play “Sorry!” with me, so we played a modified version.

    I decided to try TMG at 500 mg instead today. I will see how he is after school. Thanks again for sharing your journey! I appreciate your honesty about the ups and downs.

    watching your video just make my day.. literary.. My 2.5 years old Jonathan is showing some of the ASD symptoms, poor eye contact, mimicking, can only say UP UP and babbling…, quite hyper too i should say.. We just started him only with Super Nu Thera for a few days and so far we notice he has minor improvement in eye contact….

    I tried to find a doctor who can check him and test his nutrition deficiency see where we at with it.. but so far i got turned down by 1 doctor due to his age..

    After i read your blog, i tempted to try DMG and TMG and see if any of those will even give him improvement…

    Overall… It is such a Blessing to see your son.

    Thank you for your helpful tips. After 1.5 months on DMG, slowly ramping up from 125mg to 680mg a day, my son 6-yr-old had a 2-day mild fever. After the 2 fever days, he complained of “ouchy tummy”. I did an enema and found very bubbly and super foul smelling poo. Yeast? Did you have yeast issues while on DMG? I have done daily enema which have kept the “bubbles” at bay and have decreased my DMG to 250mg a day. Your thoughts? Thank you

      Methylation revs up your body’s immune response. In fact, methylation boosts neurotransmitter, neuronal, to cell repair metabolism rates. So expect higher metals excretion and anti microbial response as a result too.

    Hello Kimberly,

    I live in Brazil and I have an autistic son 4 years old.
    He is hyper, stmimm, sometimes with crying tantrums (but he is very affectionate).
    When my son was under 1 year of age your stool
    were very smelly and always had constipation. Bought It
    various supplements and started giving probiotics and he was cured
    constipation but the stools remain with a very bad smell.
    With a few days after I started giving DMG and he began to improve
    behavior and began to babble (because it is not verbal), but when
    I started giving NDF (kids) in a few days he regressed and became unbearable,
    with many tantrums, irritability and crying (was uncontrolled), so I stopped giving NDF (kids)
    after 2 days he improved but still with many tantrums and crying,
    I regretted having given him NDF (kids) .Because this happened to him
    after I had given him NDF (kid)? was just one drop and
    do all this damage! Now what I can do to help you? keep giving
    probiotics and the DMG (but he did not babbles more), does not try to talk. I have several
    supplements, but do not know what to give to help. I know you’re not Dr. Dan, but I need
    your help, because in Brazil has no one who can help me. Recalling that did tests
    parasitic and was negative. Tests that could help you is not done in my late country.

    I gave my son NDF children, which is softer, but he did not support. He grinds his teeth day and noite.As times in your stool has much mucus. Did a survey of IgG, and he has intolerance to milk and gluten, but could not make to your diet, as it is very selective with food and it is a thin child, but this week we will remove milk from their diet. The examination of parasites (for some parasites) was negative. I would love him to stop the Stimm (is clapping) and I would love for him to speak. Some supplements that have: DMG (balance), TMG, multivitamins, theanine, GABA, glycine, probiotic and prebiotic (inulin), L-methionine, taurine, L-carnosine, biotin, choline and inositol, children’s DHA (nordic) Amino Support (Kirkman), L-Tyrosine, NAC, Candex, digestive enzymes, 5-HTP, vitamin D3 5,000UI, chelate zinc 30mg, magnesium oxide, vitamin B-6, PS100 (Phosphatidylserine with soy) .Please me says what he would do in my place, because you have a great experience in autism the subject.

    My 8 yr old daughter is a shaken baby survivor with multiple residual problems including cerebral palsy, cognitive deficits, microcephalus, hydrocephalus shunt, seizures, can make sounds but cannot speak words, can’t eat textured foods, sensory processing disorder, and self injurious behavior. The hitting herself problem is the hardest thing to deal with. I have done a lot of research and I really think the self injury is seizure related. Her symptoms do imitate autistic behavior as well. My research indicates the DMG could possibly help with this behavior. Question is can we continue to give her the prescribed medication for seizures and Clonidine to help her sleep and get a true test if the Dmg works. Essential oils have helped calm her and can bring her out of meltdowns, but nothing has helped with her hurting herself. I block her head with a helmet, then she hits her face, I make braces for her arm so she can’t bend it and she uses her teeth to hit her knees, i make knee pads to protect her knees from her teeth! She has no control over the hitting herself and will reach out to hold our hand to prevent her from hitting, will sit on her hand or bring us her braces or pads to stop her. Suggestions ?

    Hi, Reading your story and journey with your son was amazing it gives me hope and strength that there is still a cure or a treatment out there,
    my son is diagnose with Autism his 3 years old and we bought on line Mb12, however is not a shot but only a table (pharma don’t see shots here) and we bought as well DMG on line, my question is did you had your son on MB12 while his on DMG? we have a DAN appointment in a month from now and am a bit anxious of waiting for a month. and would probably take another month to get his test results back.

    My son is a 14 yr old Autistic boy. He was put on 10mg Prozac on July 21. I don’t like it and I don’t see it helping. He has very aggressive and violent outbursts. I read an article where a doctor put a autistic 18 yr old on high amounts of DMG, B6 and magnesium. His violence stopped. I’ll paste the story. Question is should I start with DMG or right to Tmg? Need help quickly! Case 4: Michael was a 180-pound, 18-year-old autistic young man who had broken his mother’s jaw and beaten his father so badly that he had missed work for several days. The police had been called on a number of occasions, when he flew into one of his rages. Ed Kitt, the principal of the school in Las Vegas that he attended, told the family to contact me for advice. I suggested the B6 and magnesium, as well as DMG, and the results were nothing short of miraculous. Michael’s very good and pleasant behavior has continued now for a number of years. He continues to take massive amounts of B6 and magnesium (1500mg of B6, 700mg of magnesium) and 18 DMG tablets per day. The father told me that these nutrients are expensive, but he is glad to pay for them. They are less expensive than the drugs he had been buying, and certainly much more effective, safer, and more helpful for his son.

    Hi Kim,

    Would be ok if i go through my 23andme and OAT test with you… My DAN doctor, with all due respect, does not seem to know on how to read the 23andme test.. When i asked him about mutation, he doesn’t really explain it or maybe he just doesn’t know it.. So since you mention that your son has BHMT mutation, i was wondering if you can give me some pointers what vitamin will be good for him…

    homozygous mutations That shows in red:
    VDR Taq
    MAO-A R297R
    CBS A360A

    heterozygous mutations That shows in yellow:
    MTRR K350A

    Thank you,

    Need help ASAP. My 14 year old Autistic son is now hospitalized. He’s gone into a regressed state. I can’t afford to go to a Dan Doctor nor could I because he’s in the hospital. He has very violent outbursts and is pretty much non verbal. His diagnosis is Autistic with a severe intellectual disability. They had him on 10 mugs of Prozac for just over 1 month and I pulled him off. It wasn’t helping but making it worse. He’s about 170lbs. I’ve read a lot. I’d like to try DMG or Tmg and b6 and magnesium. I’ve read a lot about it helping. I see this was posted a couple years ago but I hope you still respond.

    Within that year of biomedical were there many other supplements or treatments that you would attribute to his recovery or would you say the DMG & TMG were the main ones? We have my son on several supplements and the GF/ CF diet but he is making very limited progress. I ordered the DMG and he’s had one dose so far. I also ordered the Bioray quartet which hsnt come yet. Is there anything else you can suggest or that really helped your son? My son is 4 and I’m desperate to help him!

    Hi Kimberly,
    Weldone for the help and info given. I have read through these comments and how you take time to respond to each one is really kind. I’ve commented on one of your previous posts too. I’m in the uk and doing Biomeds with my 3 yr old daughter through the guidance of a nutritional therapist who also recoverd her daughter from autism. She’s really good and is well into biomedical intervention. My daughter is improving although we not there yet as she still can’t really answer questions and seems dazed sometimes. She’s also uses echolalia but in the right way. Like asking for something always in the same way and never rephrasing. Are these similar things you saw in Anthony as atimes I have doubts about her getting through( I know I shouldn’t)
    And we are on a host of stuff including grape seed extract enzymes probiotics clo super Nu thera etc. my therapist says we can start dmg/mb12 next. Firstly she says we do dmg and then add in mb12 and secondly I noticed you mentioning the 23and me test to determine whether dmg or tmg is needed. My question is we haven’t done it but she suggested I start mb12/dmg, what do you think about that? But her Oat test did state she needs methylation support. Thanks for the help and any advice will be grateful

    Hi Kimberly,

    My son takes dmg and b6 magnesium for 3 months, he gets behavorial progress tho still not verbal, than when added methylb12 and folinic acid, he suddenly imitate what we are doing, the speech is coming, he answer yes when we call his name. But still non verbal, he attempts to speak but sound from his mouth different with what we say, at least he is now trying imitate words.

    so, when you did methyl b12, and you added DMG, next yo change dmg to tmg, you still did the shots? the shots still accompanied dmg and tmg (a while) then after tmg a while you decided to stop the shot? When Anthony made sentences with TMG, that time Anthony still did the shots?

    because i think my sons reponds well with b12 + dmg togethert, i maybe will try b12 with tmg.

    thank for your time.

You said he got 1 tsp a day = 500 mg DMG, however the supplement you recommend says 1 tsp = 125 mg. Did you give 4 tsp throughout the day to achieve that amount? Thanks for all you offer to families helping their unique little souls to heal and blossom.

    Hello, my son Titus is 2 now and has the c677t gene mutation. I know that DMG was not good for Titus, but TMG seemed to work good at first. My question is, is it normal for him to get aggressive or frustrated type behavior with TMG? I wasn’t sure if he becoming more aware or if it’s not a normal reaction. I think I’ve read where adding more methyl folate can help with some behaviors from both DMG and TMG? I stopped it for now, so I could restart at lower dose. Also was going to ask if you have tried liposomal glutathione and what your thoughts are in that?

    Thank you so much for this post! I had never heard of these supplements, we’ve been through a pediatric neuro, a mthfr nutritionist, and 2 functional md’s before settling down with our current functional md. I’d like to run the idea of DMG past her, would you mind telling me what exactly on your son’s 23andme was the indicator that it would be useful? We’ve done all the OAT’s/etc. too, but as far as methylation, my son is hetero for 3 of the mutations so it’s been very hit and miss as far as what works for him. We’re having a really hard time with supplements. Lately we’re concentrating on a raw diet to allow for better detox and we are seeing results for the first time in years. Just wondering if it would amp things up for him if the DMG would be something suitable for his genetics. Any information you have would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Brooke

    Hi Kimberly,
    My daughter was diagnosed with Autism when she was 3. and at the suggestion of Dr Bernard Rimland, Ohio, I started her on DMG. The improvement in her language was pretty instant (within a few days). She is now 18 and has been on it ever since. She had 3 years of special education, but is now in her 12th year of mainstream school. She has multiple achievements, and this year she is even music captain at her school. I never got her graduated to TMG as DMG seemed to work so well.If she forgets to take it for a few days, we all notice the difference in her. I’m sure that DMG has been a key element in her progress and success.

    I am a 32 year old adult who is autistic but relatively high-functioning. I wasn’t actually diagnosed until I was 28 back in 2012. People just thought I was a weird kid.

    I’ve always exhibited autistic behaviors, but I remember very vividly that they increased markedly after one of my vaccinations when I was about 10 years old. I began rubbing my hands together in ways that would hurt my skin over and over and I began having weird digestive issues and problems with eye contact. I cannot prove that the vaccine did this. But this increase in problems occurred immediately following the shot. Before this, I was weird and introverted, but I loved playing outside with my friends and had zero eye contact problems.

    It wasn’t until recently that I began to get serious about trying to improve myself nutritionally. I’ve been taking large amounts of vitamin D, B6 and magnesium and have seen marginal improvements.

    Then, I tried trimethylglycine. I’ve only taken it for a very short time, but I am noticing sensations and feelings that I have not felt since I was in elementary school.

    Particularly, I remember these sensations I would feel right before and after a meal that went away as I got older. I feel that again. My eye contact is normal, and I enjoy being around others again. I feel exactly the way I felt when I was a child before the change when I was 10. I never thought this would be possible!

    Oh, and my hand rubbing thing is 95% reduced too.

    I’m hoping that the improvements continue.

    I have a question . Today my son’s doctor mentioned NAC(n acetyl cysteine) for him . Do you have any experience with NAC? .I read some articles and got very excited about improvement of irritability and anxiety and OCD symptoms , depression ( and some other benefits not for autistic population )

    Hi Kimberly,
    I have a 5 year old son who has autism. He still stimms a lot, can rarely sit still and is quite hard to have a conversation with although he understands what we say. He tends to hit his siblings a lot. It is very painful and hard to see him hitting them as they cannot defend themselves or run away. Generally, he adds a lot of stress to our family and I would love to help him.

    A month ago, we started him on liquid DGM and – maybe out of sheer desperation since there was no obvious effect – we also started giving him TMG (powder) as well 3 weeks later. I am now beginning to wonder whether I am overdoing it. What is your advice in our present situation? Continue what we are doing or discontinue one of them?

    Appreciate your advice very, very much!

    Hello again! Can you use DMG with B1, and probiotics? Also, when you gave your son Liver of LIfe (even though you had a horrible experience – yet you said it could have helped with his allergies) did you also give him DMG or TMG at the same time? Lastly, have you heard of DMG increasing aggressive or SIB behaviors? Or is it similar to a die-off effect and it will pass? I didn’t know if there was a supplement to counteract any aggressive behaviors while on DMG or TMG. Thanks! (I have a MAPs appointment this week and want to change course to DMG, we have not received his OATs results just yet).

    I love your blog! I have a 15year old daughter on autism spectrum though she tested moderately. She is in 9th grade working at 6-7th grade level. I have tried and failed in the past with supplements and her stubbornness but after having my last son who is on the spectrum too! He is 6 years old we are going to heal and recover. I started my son on my daughters old vitamin/mineral Klaire’s Vitaspecteum and I got better eye contact. I have my daughter taking dr David Williams daily that includes similar vitamin levels as klaires did it has an herbal, fish oil chlorella lots of veggies/fruits for enzymes. My son takes Carlson cod liver oil/3000mg vitamin d. We also all take MCT oil from coconuts, probiotics 150-200billion renew life/garden of eden/culturelle we routate. They both started dmg/folinic acid/b12. My son was hyper for about an hour after taking today is his first day. My daughter also takes 5000mg of D daily as well as Carnitine, a-carnisine 500 mg. Both kids seem more alert. I also love the bioray kids line my son had an rsv for a year with antibiotic use he started showing a delay in speech SHINE from bioray increased his speech when he was three. We are using the whole line of kids products and are tolerated well they are 25% strength than liver life and their other products. We are scheduled with a homeopath/dan dr. Both my children have gut issues and my son has a yeast problem they are both GF/CS and my son doesn’t get sugar anymore. He kept getting thrush with no antibiotic use the nystatin took over a week but the probiotics cleared it up in days. I will also start coconut kefir soon and the ecology diet and juicing. For those parents who are worried my daughter is an absolute joy she is a beautiful helpful girl who is young at heart loves jokes. She loves technical computer games mind craft, Pokémon cards, and animals. My son is so happy and picking things up fast he is confident and social he struggles with expressive communication. But they are great kids. Do what you can diet is a big one we can all improve and heal our children. Good luck. My daughter was vaccine injured gut issues etc son yeast gut issues.

    Hi Kimberly, just wondering is DMG only good if you have a BHMT mutation? My one year old seems to be losing speech, which has me so worried. My Son is 7 and had asd sympyoms, which have on the whole resolved with biomed etc. My daughter is too young to do a 23andme test but looking at my son’s he was -/- for all BHMT snps, so guessing she might be similar. I noticed a change in her eye contact at 3 months exactly when she developed cradle cap. Yeast is definitely an issue, so working on that at the mo but just want to do as much as possible whilst she is so little so I can avoid a label for her. Any advice or ideas would be great. We are in the UK and there are hardly any docs to help.

    How do you know how much DMG to give your child. We tried it for about 2 weeks and saw huge increases, but it made him not go to sleep at a reasonable hour at night so we stopped ogiving it to him. Does that type of thing or hyperness go away after a while? I have heard of some people just doing TMG versus DMG. Does that make sense ever? We did not try it.

    Hi Kimberly

    My 3 and half year old son is still taking DMG x 3 capsules of 125mg with the multivitamin drink in the morning over a month now and he has two words yes and hi he makes alot of sounds and would you suggest to finish the course of dmg capsules and start him on the tmg. Should he specifically take the florastor probiotic as he is taking the brand udo probiotic and spoonful of fish oil with p5p and magnesium in the evening.

    He has started preschool and has sensory issues along with speech delay his teacher said he is sociable and happy and is aware of his speech and sensory issues she asked about speech and language therapy for him. He is on a waiting list for early intervention for his speech delay and sensory issues and we will try get him seen in the next few weeks and hopefully not to wait for months as originally confirmed. Would the early intervention help him combined with the vitamin therapy? as so desperate to help him with his speech and sensory.

    Hi Kimberly! I have been following your site for months now and let me first say thank you for sharing your journey and providing such amazing information. My son is 2.5 and, very much like Anthony’s story, has been doing speech therapy, behavioral therapy, etc for nearly a year with no gains. My son has almost all of the same symptoms you documented Anthony had in the beginning of your biomed journey (head dragging, tip toe walking, loose/foul smelling stools (not formed, yet not diarrhea, severe speech delay,etc etc). Anyhow, I am curious if you have any information on Dr. Sletten at this stage in the game. We live in Kentucky, very rural area. I have investigated all the “options” for DAN/MAP docs as well as naturopathic and integrative peds, and after intense research, am not happy with the options. I have called Dr. Sletten’s office multiple, and I mean multiple (at least 25 times just in the last week and a half) and I always get the recording. I leave a message, but never receive a call back. I am willing to travel anywhere if I know the doctor can help. Do you happen to know if Dr. Sletten is still accepting patients? Perhaps an alternate way to reach his office? I hate asking, but I am reaching my breaking point and am desperate to try anything to get help. 23andme no longer offers the “assisted” kits for toddlers, so I have made an appointment for genetic testing in Cincinnati, OH, but that appointment is still nearly two months away. I also ordered an OAT test, but am still attempting to collect urine (not going well for me). Anyhow, I am very interested in potentially attempting to start DMG, but am scared to death to try before I get the proper genetic testing done. I’m losing my mind with each passing day, though. At this point, I will do anything to get some help.
    Again, thank you so very much for all of your time and documentation along your journey. It has been immensely helpful to me thus far. Any other recommendations you have to help me understand biomed more thoroughly? Books? Articles? I would be ecstatic if I could understand 1/10th of what you know. You are amazing!
    Thanks so much!

    Hi Kinmberly,

    I am so happy to read your blog which for the first time looks genuine and not for making money,I am from India and I have a son who has just turned 3,He is still non verbal and doesnt talk at all..We got his basic blood testing done and only Vitamin d3 was very less and started with 60,000 IU per week, it has been now 4 weeks but not much improvements.We showed him to a clinical psychiatrist and after evaluations she has said I dont think he comes under “ASD” but she gave a syrup called Cognitam which has Priacatem and along with 0.25 mg of Sizodon (risperidone) but we started him just with Cognitam and we are not giving him (risperidone).Which even his Paed felt is not necessary right now at this young age.

    I want to share that his eye contact is good and he responds to simple instructions like give me remote,swtich on tv,he opens the door if bell rings etc..But he cannot understand complex instructions yet, He doesnt listen to us if he is engrossed in mobile,Tv or if he is playing.if he is not doing anything he listens to us.He doesnt have repititive behaviours like hand flapping,rocking etc but he likes to play with each toy repititively for 5 to 10 minutes then he will play with other toy, he can speak 4 to 5 words like Mumma,Papa,Dada,Didi but only when we force him or cajole him otherwise he will not speak a single word!

    We have just started him with OT ..he goes for 4 classes per week, and he just loves these classes and doesnt want to come back! He is not toilet trained yet, though he will never wet bed he will get down and do it on floor but not on bed,if we take him to toilet on time he would do it there but wont ask us to take him!

    Ok Now I want to know can I start DMG? we cannot make him do salaiva testing as he will not spit so much to fill the tube, Plus shall we start him with Multivitamin like Nutera with high Vitamin B6? I just want to tell you that his Vitamin B12 is very good near to the maximum recomended levels.Vitamin B6 was not tested..But I dont want to prick him again for any blood test as he is very uncooperative for blood test.

    We are so anxious parents like all parents for whose kids have not started talking and it is taking a toll on our health with sleepless Nights.

    Please do help us with your expert guidance.

    Dear Kinmberly,

    Thanks alot for your comments,We were on holidays and I had not seen your reply.Yes you are right that testing is the way forward so that we target with the right medication/nutrition support.

    Please let me know how to contact Dr.Catanzaro, I would like to consult him and then do the testing.

    In the meantime I had ordered DMG and Nutera, Can we start giving for say 15 days and check if he has any improvements and by that time we will even get the testing done.

    Thanks for your support.
