Treatments Used

I’ve had parents ask me what treatments, supplements, therapies we used with Anthony.  So this page is all about that!  =-)   I must mention, this is all based on Anthony’s personal set of circumstances and test results. Please only use this information as a reference and NOT advice on how to heal your own child. Always consult with your doctor before trying a new supplement/medication, or other treatment.

 

 

Therapy

Physical Therapy/Early Intervention – 3 months old  – 18 months old

Occupational Therapy –  2 yrs old-  3 1/2 yrs old (no longer qualified after 3 months of bio-med protocol)

Speech Therapy – 18 months – 4 1/2 yrs old (no progress until we started bio-med at 3 1/2 yrs old, no longer qualified at 4 1/2, no longer has a apraxia/articulation disorder)

Now 100% therapy FREE!

 

Homeopathy – for PANDAS

– Dysentry c 30c – used for gut health and helps with anxiety.  Anthony did fine with it.  Took him off, no longer needed it.

– Syphillium 1M – used to address traumas in his past (Anthony’s twin passing-away, being premature)  OCD around cleaning.  Anthony did GREAT with this.  Wiped out his OCD about 95%.

–  Streptococcus Pyogenes 200c (moved up from 200c) – used to treat PANDAS and help immune response against strep bacteria.  Our homeopath said Anthony is now done with this. 

– Carcinosin 200c –  Anthony was VERY sensitive to it.  He had flu like symptoms, got a very rare ear infection (he has tubes) and then threw up and had diarrhea for days.  While Alan said this sounded like detox healing, we pulled the plug on Carc.  It was just too intense.  

Sadly homeopathy was only a “band aid” treatment for Anthony.  And once remedies were discontinued, symptoms returned.

Supplements

(This is NOT Anthony’s current list of supplements he takes! This is a list of the ones he has taken at one time or another. As Anthony healed, we had to change things up)

Kirkman Pro-bio Defense – After 2 years we switched when we found out Anthony had PANDAS and was sensitive to Strep

New Beginnings Probiotic Formula – currently on.  No strep in this probiotic and contains S. boulardi  Good experience so far.

Diflucan –  Gave to Anthony for about 1 1/2 years at different dosages.  Killed a lot of yeast. 

Nystatin –  gave in the beginning of biomed and when Anthony was on antibiotics for 6 months

Methyl – B-12 injections – Good experience but not the WOW factor for Anthony.

B1 – Anthony’s OATs test showed he was low in this vitamin.  Really helped irritable and argumentative behavior

DMG – Anthony started making 2 word phrases on this. Moved on to TMG

TMG – Anthony started speaking in sentences on this.  It is his WOW supplement.  Still currently taking, and Did 23andMe testing to see if Anthony needs this for life. He does because he has +/+ mutations for CBS and BHMT

Kirkman Super Nu-Thera – stopped because the levels of B-6 made him too hyper and gave him apnea.  This was due to his CBS mutation.

Vitamin D3 – giving all year because of VDR heterozygeous mutation

Barleans Omega Swirl – Anthony prefers this over the Nordic Naturals brand, not oily.

CoQ-H – Was on to help with mito dysfunction and methylation gene mutations.  It is the more easily absorbed version of CoQ10.  Last OAT test and CoQ10 test showed Levels are normal!

Bio-Ray LiverLife – Gave to Anthony for 3 months to detox environmental toxins (MTBE).  Rough experience.  Found out this happened because of his +/+  CBS and BHMT gene mutations. Chollera, and ingredient i n LiverLife does not work well with this mutation.

Bio-Ray NDF Plus – Part of detox protocol.  Gave for 2 months. He was VERY sensitive to it.  Found out this happened because of his +/+  CBS and BHMT gene mutations. Chollera, an ingredient in LiverLife does not work well with this mutation.

Enzymedica ViraStop2x – LOVE this stuff.  Thinned Anthonys wax in his ears which use to be a problem.  Give this while Anthony is in school.

Enzymedica Digest Spectrum – Currently on.  Give at meal times.

4life Transfer Factor – giving to help with immune system. Helps strengthen & calm immune system response. Really helped with allergies.

Phosphatidyl Serine – AWESOME stuff.  Helped greatly with the OCD anxiety Anthony would have. Also helps with concentration when Anthony is in school. Good for kids with BHMT mutations.  Anthony has 2 homozygeous and 1 heterozygeous BHMT mutations

Zinc – AMAZING supplement.  Really helped with independent play, and bad breath

Selenium –  Awesome for thyroid function.  Helping lower Anthony’s abnormally high TSH levels.   Really helped his OCD.

Xymogen Relax Max – The GABA/L-theanine combination of this supplement is great for Anthony’s genetic makeup per his 23 and Me test.

I also recommend Spectrum Supplements if your child is on any supplements.  They are by far the cheapest, offer FREE shipping, reward points and you can use Coupon Code: BIOMED to receive an additional discount. 

 

What we Treated & Tests we ran:

After doing the Alletess allergy testGenova Diagnostic NutrEval Organic Acids test, thyroid, ferritin/iron, and regular CBC work up, we took Anthony’s results and got to work

He had 30 food sensitivities, and 5 true food allergies. Grade 1 – 3

He had elevated levels of oxidative stress, Mitochondrial Dysfunction, a neurotransmitter imbalance and vitamin deficiencies

Tested to find out if Anthony had any gene mutation in his methylation pathways with the 23andMe test.  We found out he had a few mutations.  This explained why the TMG supplement made a huge impact.

We tested Anthony’s strep levels (antistreptolysin O titer (ASO) & antideoxyribonuclease-B titer (anti-DNase-B, or ADB)

Anthony has issues going on with his Thyroid (High TSH) and blood sugar.  (Hypoglycemic)

 

^^^^^^^ THERAPY ALONE CAN NOT TREAT THESE^^^^ ISSUES!!


5  Years After Starting Bio-Med….

Food sensitivities have improved. No longer sensitive to dairy. Gluten is now a grade 1 but we still completely avoid it.  He only has one grade 1 true food allergy which is wheat.

His gut has completely healed.  No more bacterial dysbosis, or inflammation.  Yeast levels just a couple points over “normal”.

Neurotransmitter levels completely normal.  Only vitamin deficiency is now Vit. B1 and we continue to give TMG.  Oxidative stress has improved but we are still working on it (added antioxidants).  Mitrochondrial Dysfunction is much improved!

We are now focusing on healing Anthony’s thyroid and treating his glucose/insulin imbalance.

    Kimberly,

    Is it the TMG that helps with ferritin levels? I thought you posted that at one time. I’m hoping to read and research more about this.

    Btw – Thank you for a great website. You’ve inspired me. We’ve had about as much to overcome.

    Kind Regards,
    Kristie

    hello,
    boy two years old and was diagnosed with autism. Folic acid is highly involved. We expect the results for the MTHFR mutation. He is not talking. Casein and gluten free diet came good move slightly improved. Act as holding objects close to the eyes are in his hand. DMG is the right word to use? It is good to talk?

    thanks

    hello,
    I 23andMe test done. MTHRF gene mutations were evaluated only. The results came out.
    I guess none of the test that you propose sending Turkey. Do not use the DMG MTHRF gene mutation? Do not use folic acid is high?

    Hi!!! Love your website!!! Also, did you ever do GAPS as well?? My DAN is suggesting holding off on any supplements other than probiotic, CLO, MB12 injections and JUST do the GAPS. So a lot of these supplements I don’t even know what they are! We see Dr. Dan Rossignol in November so maybe I should wait to see him……. thank you! 🙂

    Thanks for that comment about GAPS diet, I just finished reading about it and was wondering whether I should try it, but maybe I should see whether Ethan is allergic to anything specifically. The book Gut and Psycholgy Syndrome was recommended to me by a doctor who specialises in FCT and cranial adjustments for autistic kids. Has anybody ever tried any of these? My son has made a lot of progress this year with bio-medicine supplements and homeopathy, it’s’ like the layers of autism are slowly coming off, so now what’s left is the speech delay and a bit of mood swings to deal with. Speech is coming on too, but not as quickly as I would like and I wonder if I am missing something, so will try FCT in the new year and see what happens!

    Wow. I have just come across your website. Thank you!
    We have been doing therapies, neurofeedback, chiro, GAPS and recently started biomedical. I noticed an immediate difference after starting supplements especially zinc.
    I love your analagy about the horse and cart. So true!
    My biggest hopes lie with the improvement of social skills and rigidity in play. Have you noticed improvement in this area?
    Also wanted your advice on the parasites. My son is on a medication for this and it is making him quite emotional. Only two weeks to go!
    Thanks for all the info. Its wonderful.

    I did buy the 23and me kit, but you know, I cannot get my son to put in enough saliva for the sample!
    In the last two months of last year I followed Alan Freestone’s advise and gave him poly vacc, wasnt’ sure he would have a reaction at all, as I never noticed any when he got his shots as a baby, but I was really wrong! He had a major reaction in the last two weeks, sick as anything, diarrhea, the works. Once the treatment stopped he got back to normal immediately and his speech and behaviour have improved so much! I am not givining anything now, apart from vitamine C and probiotic and magnesium oil. There is still a lot of room for improvement, though: his sentences are getting more complex but still a bit jumbled up, as he’s so eager to have conversations. I just read something about SAMe, has anybody tried that? I’m just keeping things simple for my son right now in terms of remedies, until I see this FCT doctor next month and then see what the verdict is. My hunch is that there might be more heavy metals to get rid of, if the poly vacc experience is anything to go by; he also had quite a strong reaction to carcinosin cum cuprum (copper).

    Thanks for the advise. Ethan can spit, it’s just that he won’t if I ask him to, or not enough…
    Anyway, yes, I did the whole course of poly vacc until the end and the last two weeks were so bad I felt like I was deliberatly poisoning my own son…but once the course stopped he bounced back like nothing had happened, except he was so much “present” and bright and chatty and Alan said he would continue to improve in the following weeks and he has.
    I stopped the DMG and TMG a few months ago, because I didn’t see much difference in him, no bad reactions either. The carcinosin did a great job on Ethan, no bad reactions at all, but the carcinosin cum cuprum is totally different apparently and that did have a reaction that made my homeopathic doctor here think he has heavy metals in his body. Now I stopped all homeopathic treatments and wait to see this FCT doctor, who also uses homeopathic remedies. He gave me two books to read, one on GAPS diet and the other on the Age of Autism, which basically follows the use of mercury in western medicine throughout the centuries and autistic symptoms are a lot similar to mercury poisoning…

    Thanks for the advise, Kimberley; my son can spit all right, just not interested when I ask him to do it!
    Yes, we did follow the whole protocol for the poly vacc, although the last two weeks were really rough, we stuck to it and once it was over, Ethan bounced back like nothing had ever happened and that’s when the improvements started! Alan did say that we would continue to see improvements for weeks to come and he was right: he is much more chatty, present, interactive, better behaved…
    I stopped the DMG and TMG months ago to see if it made any difference and it didn’t, so I guess it’s not needed anymore. I came across this FCT (field control therapy) which apparently can pin point exactly which organs are affected by what problem and then homeopathc remedies are prescribed. Ethan responded really well to Carcinosin, but Carcinosin cum Cuprum is a different matter and he was pretty sick with that, which made my homeopathic doc here think Ethan still has some heavy metals to get rid of…
