In this article, we
review the scientific literature on lutein and other pigments
and show how this relates to autism and a lutein-free diet as a treatment
'These studies strongly point
to a disturbance which could be anticipated in a metabolism with an
abnormal immunogenetic (IoGc) relationship to lutein
(xanthophyllic pigments) resulting in the ophthalmologic findings in
the eyes of people with autism. Coupled with dietary information which
indicates many people and particularly young children with autism
actively attempt to
avoid dietary lutein sources, the theory that lutein is a potential
causal factor in
autism is strongly supported by the research.'

'In our theory autism is not

it is a neuro-gastro-immunological disorder resulting from

AUTISM - The Way Forward
Way out of Crisis
Our experience of working in many
different settings worldwide is that the institutions where autistic
children are cared for and educated, and the social service system
designed to administrate their care, are collapsing under the burden of
this ever increasing and tremendously challenging population.
School – the Development
of Transition Communities
A top priority of any Model of Excellence
Program will be to keep people with autism out of psychiatric hospitals
and living in the community. The communities we envision include
centers offering short- and medium-term therapeutic transition programs.
Coping skills for people with autism most
often include ‘withdrawal from the fabric of social life’ and this also
is reflected in the isolation that many families experience who are
dealing with autism. The lure of behavioral therapy is strong for
families in crisis, but are these therapies working? We see behaviors
as coping skills as the autists seek to deal with the way their bodies
are reacting. The combination approach of dietary and
therapies are designed to effect powerful changes.
'Simply, we are trying to find in ourselves the
potential for accepting responsibilities which come with working and
living with people who are not ordinary and have not had an ordinary
of Excellence' Community models
It is clear that present practices are
failing to address the consistent pattern
of family crisis and breakdown that inevitably leads to
and an enormous burden on the community. We have also seen how, with
adequate and co-ordinated support, education and services at a local
level, including proper respite services, foster-care programs, a range
of therapeutic and vocational training programs, an autism-aware
medical community and properly funded and organised family support
networks, these crises can be averted, families can stay together, and
integration into the mainstream of community life becomes more likely.
'Why is it that
we as a society are willing to pay three shifts of employees who have
no vested interest in the life or well-being of their client to care
for a disabled person, the management staff to oversee the staffing,
the government staff to oversee the management of the care agencies and
service providers and politicians to make these
policies but we are unwilling to support a family in crisis or predict
that these same circumstances which repeatedly result in crisis and
breakdown will produce the same outcomes again and again? We will say
it again – families need support, training, respite and inclusion so
that families can avoid crisis and stay together.'

Vitamin A Saga
By Sally Fallon and Mary G. Enig, PhD
A key player in this fascinating story is Weston A. Price, who discovered that the diets of healthy traditional peoples contained at least ten times as much vitamin A as the American diet of his day. His work revealed that vitamin A is one of several fat-soluble activators present only in animal fats and necessary for the assimilation of minerals in the diet. He noted that the foods held sacred by the peoples he studied,
such as spring butter, fish eggs and shark liver, were exceptionally rich in vitamin A.

Have ADHD Consider Fish Oil Over Ritalin 7-20-02
This study provides the research evidence supporting the use of the
omega-3 fats found in fish oils to effectively address the underlying
deficiency that is present in most of these children and appears to be
contributing to the ADHD.
Oil and arthritis pain
There is considerable evidence now that rheumatoid arthritis is caused
by oxidative stress and involves an excessive production of
pro-inflammatory compounds. Research has shown that supplementation
with fish oils (EPA and DHA) can markedly reduce production of these
compounds, and results in a significant reduction in morning stiffness
and the number of painful joints in rheumatoid arthritis patients.

"Any child can engage in behavior that is
undesirable or inappropriate. Indeed, some "inappropriate" behaviors
are characteristic of developmental stages and are therefore
"appropriate" developmentally (think of how we talk about "The
Terrible Two's" or the rebelliousness of adolescents).
When a child or adolescent has been diagnosed as having a
neurobehavioral condition, however, parents and teachers may find
themselves falling into the morass of trying to determine whether what
they're seeing is voluntary behavior or a symptom of the child's
condition and whether to or how to attempt to modify it."
