The attendees gained insight into how clinical nutritionists examine the mechanisms and formulate treatment schedules for Autism. The lecture was again complemented by his “killer” graphics which made the difficult concepts simple.
Examining the roles of important nutrients like zinc, copper, amina acids, vitamin B6 and vitamin C, in normal human development, the lecture looked at normal brain function with regard to nutritional needs of the mother and the child. It examined the importance of tissue co-operation such as hormones, gut and brain in ensuring correct development of all the tissues in the growing child. It examined the role of tests such as hair analysis in the correction of problems like Autism.
But in particular the lecture looked at where brain function goes wrong in Autism and more importantly why this is happening as a global epidemic. It examined the roles of genetics and antioxidants in the prevention and treatment of Autism and looked at the roles of toxic metals in the genesis of the disease and how these generate the symptoms of Autism.
