Many thanks to our 2017 supporters! Thanks to their help we made major progress last year, including:

  • Comprehensive Nutritional Treatment Study:  Published a paper demonstrating major improvements including 7 point gain in non-verbal IQ, and 18 month gain in developmental age
  • National Treatment Survey:  Submitted our paper on benefits and adverse effects of psychiatric and seizure medications
  • Gut Treatment Study:  Completed a 2-year follow-up on our original study participants, showing major long-term benefits.  
  • Gut Treatment Study for Adults:  Started recruiting for this new study.
  • Mom’s Study:  Identified several major risk factors for autism

Please help us continue this important work in 2018! This year our research includes:

  • National Treatment Survey:  Analysis of the effectiveness of many nutritional supplements
  • Gut Treatment Study for Adults:  Continue this new study
  • Gut Treatment Study for Children:  Start another treatment study
  • Yeast Levels in Autism:  Investigate yeast infections and their effect on autism symptoms
  • Mom’s Study:  Investigate additional risk factors, including hundreds of metabolites, gut bacteria, toxic metals, and more.
  • Prenatal Vitamin/Mineral:  Release our report on the optimal level of each vitamin and mineral in prenatals, based on over 350 studies.
