It’s estimated that one in every 54 children born in the UK could be on the spectrum disorder. The number is thought to be higher in the USA and instances across the world are on the rise. What can be done?
Dr Jim Adams, who directs the autism/Asperger’s research program at Arizona State University, has found that there are a great many physiological and cognitive benefits to autism to be derived from dietary changes and supplementation, such as improvements in the following areas:
- Sensory issues
- Gastrointestinal symptoms
At Deep Blue Sea Holistic, we work on a child’s diet/nutritional needs, but more than that, our objective is to eliminate any underlying factors that could be causing the nutritional dysfunction. It is little known that toxins (heavy metals, environmental toxins and allergies), Lyme disease and other infections (parasites, bacteria, yeast, clostridia and viruses) prevent proper absorption of essential proteins, vitamins and minerals, which are essential for cognitive functioning.
Itsuko’s sequential autism treatments are in line with the work of leading holistic medical doctors (including Dr Klinghardt, Dr Todd Watts, Dr Jay Davidson and Dr Kucera) and are highly individualised as they are in direct response to Biofeedback testing (ART, O-ring and Kinesiology) and Heart Rate Variability tests results.
A typical treatment will include:
- Optimising a child’s Mitochondria function and preparing their para-sympathetic regulation system ready for regeneration
- Eliminating unknown food allergies and coming up with a beneficial and feasible diet plan
- Reducing heavy metal and environmental toxicity
- Cleansing harmful microbes and infections and reconstituting the Gastrointestinal environment
- Balancing DNA methylation
Mitochondria is the powerhouse of all cells. It is imperative we look in and support the mitochondrial function before we start treating any other symptoms. Each cell in the body can contain mitochondria by the thousands and the number of mitochondria in a cell can depend largely on the function of each cell.
The “mighty mitochondria” are the cellular power plants that keep your metabolism humming by consuming oxygen and turning sugars, fats, and proteins that we eat, into forms of chemical energy called adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Your body uses this ATP fuel for almost everything: from blinking, to breathing, thinking and playing your favourite sports. The mitochondria are also responsible for maintaining a healthy metabolism, burning fat, detoxification, healing, and fighting oxygen-based free radicals.
Without properly functioning Mitochondria and ATP, we won't have a properly functioning body. You're going to get poor performance from your body and brain, you're going to feel increasingly tired and you'll age quicker.
Mitochondria dysfunction is also shown to play a major role in chronic illnesses such as heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, and neurodegenerative diseases, which affect 1 out of every 2 people. Recent studies have shown that approximately 90% of deaths, diseases, and poor performance is due to mitochondrial dysfunction resulting from the negative impact of inflammation and oxidative stress caused by hidden environmental stressors.
It is important we understand how mitochondria works and how to optimize its function.
At Deep Blue Sea Holistic, we measure your mitochondrial power state and its functionig level using Heart Rate Variability (HRV) testing. If dysfunction is detected, we will utlise a specific muscle testing to check the total mitochondrial metabolic pathway and detect the are of dysfuction. This combination of testing will give you a very clear picture of the condition of your mitochondria and its ATP production level. Treatment approach will vary depending on these test results.
Following in-depth analysis and interpretation of your HRV test results, Deep Blue Sea Holistic offers you an individualised Mitochondrial treatment plan.
Mitochondrial support will provide wellness in the following areas:
- Speedier recovery, increased strength, resilience, endurance and rapid regeneration.
- An ideal natural supplement in sport
- Protects muscles from injury detoxification of reactive aldehydes formed
- Mitochondrial Wellness supplements have protective qualities that stop the deformation of proteins and delay the progression of neurological conditions
- Increases the strength of contraction of the myocardium
- Regulates blood pressure
- Protects from lack of oxygen (hypoxia, ischemic) in tissue suffering from ischemic heart disease
- Extends the average life of fibroblasts in culture
- Protects from the aldehyde
- Protects from the creation of alpha-synuclein, which occurs in Parkinson’s disease
- Controls blood sugar levels
- Reduces the risk of developing complications from diabetes
Lyme disease is a bacterial infection which can lead to severe mental and physical problems including chronic fatigue and depression; it can also be an important factor in Autism. This ‘silent’ disease can also be misdiagnosed as an auto-immune disorder.
According to The National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) there are 3,000 cases of Lyme disease reported in the UK each year, but the number is likely to be much higher. Lyme disease is not only transmitted by ticks, it can also be passed on by mosquitos and fleas, sexual intercourse, the placenta, breastfeeding, blood transfusions and infected food.
Lyme and its Co-infections
The unfortunate reality is that once you have Lyme disease, it opens the door to a range of co-infections which come with their own symptoms, therefore leading to multi-layered chronic conditions. That is why at Deep Blue Sea Holistic, Lyme disease and its co-infections are tested for and identified, paving the way for effective treatment.
The key Lyme and co-infections we look for and treat are:
- Borrelia burgdorferi
- Bartonella henselae
- Babesia microti
- Bona Virus
- Viruses (EBV, CMV, HHV6, Coxackie)
We, humans, are just as likely to have parasites as our friends in the animal kingdom, especially if we travel, eat raw food or have pets.
Parasites are behind a huge range of conditions such as;
- Digestion issues
- Brain fog
- Skin irritation
- Unexplained rashes
- Muscle and joint ache
- Depression and/or obsessed thoughts - and many more.
It’s imperative that our bodies are as free of harmful parasites as possible. At Deep Blue Sea Holistic, clients are given comprehensive guidance on how best to do this without putting a strain on their bodies. The result of getting rid of parasites is an upsurge in energy and a less hospitable environment for viruses, Lyme disease and its co-infections. Also, parasite elimination is the key to unlock further autism treatment.
Itsuko also specialises in determining whether toxicity from heavy metals and the environment is a factor in a range of chronic conditions.
The renowned holistic practitioner, Dr Margaret Gennaro, whom Itsuko has trained with while she was in USA, uses an excellent bathtub analogy to explain how the body and toxicity work:
“The size of the bathtub is your genetics and other hereditary/acquired tendencies. If your ancestors have had certain health issues, toxic exposure, genetic glitches and physical or emotional trauma your bathtub will be smaller.
The faucets coming into the bathtub are: food that we eat, the environment that you are exposed to (chemical and heavy metals, EMF, drugs and vaccinations – for those susceptible, environmental factors) and emotional trauma and stress that are personal and transgenerational.
The drain in the bathtub is made of: the Intestine, liver and kidneys, immune and hormonal systems, and mental, emotional and spiritual healing. If the drain is plugged up and the faucets are going strong, the water in the bathtub will overflow. This causes you to experience symptoms. This can be anything from a runny nose to cancer.”
Toxicity related symptoms:
- Chronic illness
- Chronic pain
- Hormonal imbalance
- Excess fat
- Skin rashes
- Allergies and many more
