8 Common Links to Autism & Learning Disabilities

“The Scientific Truth about Preventing, Diagnosing, and Treating Autism Spectrum Disorders – and What Parents Can Do Now” by Dr. Robert Mellio is an excellent book documenting many of the root causes behind this growing epidemic.

Research and clinically there are many common relationships to the signs and causes of autism, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), ADHD, Aspergers Syndrome, learning disabilities. Each of these are linked to multiple common threads.

Here is what we find at Renovare Brain Peak Performance:

8 Most Common Root Findings with Autism & Learning Disabilities:

1. Brain & body energy deficit disorder – The person suffering may be hyperactive, but the energy factories in their cells (mitochondria) are dysfunctioning. The end result is a brain that is suffering. At Renovare Brain Peak Performance we do a functional test on the mitochronia to see if a brain and body energy deficiency disorder is affecting the individual.

2. “Leaky Gut” or functional digestive problems – The individual may not have any digestive symptoms. With this digestive disorder the brain is affected. The result of this functional digestive problem affects normal brain function. The resulting symptoms are associated with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, learning disabilities, signs of autism (Autistic Spectrum Disorder), anxiety, depression, sleep and behavioral problems.

3. Delayed food allergies or sensitivities – Blood allergy testing for IgG and IgA typically reveals gluten, dairy and many other allergies. These food sensitivities trigger brain inflammation and brain dysfunction. Once again, the resulting symptoms are commonly found with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, learning disabilities, the signs of autism (Autistic Spectrum Disdorder), anxiety, depression, sleep and behavioral problems.

4. Multiple vitamin deficiencies – The most common vitamin deficiencies or inadequacies for learning disabilities are Vitamin D-3, Vitamin K2, Omega 3 essential fatty acids, zinc, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and glutathione. These are especially common in genetically susceptible individuals. These deficiencies or inadequacies can lead to the early signs of autism.

5. Blood sugar & insulin problems – Blood sugar and insulin problems can lead to blood sugar swings that can trigger the symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, learning disabilities, the signs of autism, anxiety, depression, sleep, anger and destructive behavior.

6. Excessive brain & body inflammation – If the mother of a child suffered from insulin resistance, excessive weight gain, hypothyroidism and methylation problems a link is found to Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, learning disabilities, the signs of autism, anxiety, depression, sleep, anger and destructive behavior. The patient is evaluated for an abnormality call Methylation defects. We use a specific testing called ‘Methylation Gene SNP Testing’ to help us understand the unique needs of those who suffer with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, learning disabilities, the signs of autism, anxiety, depression, sleep, anger and destructive behavior problems.

7. Heavy metal & chemical toxicity – The body’s ability to detox can be be impaired or dysfunctional. Excessive heavy metals and chemical toxicity is one of the main causes of autism and the signs of autism.

8. Functional Disconnection Syndrome – A healthy mature brain makes multiple connections: top to bottom, right to left and front to back of the brain. For full brain function all of these connections need to be working. The typical brain pattern we see with a functional neurologic exam is an underactive right side of the brain (right hemisphere) and problems with poor connections. There’s also important timing that needs to happen between all parts of the brain. When different parts of the brain are not working together the symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, learning disabilities, the signs of autism, anxiety, depression, sleep challenges and disruptive behavioral problems will show up.
