The main reason why I'm writing this blog entry because I just knew a friend who has a kid with autism. Not only that, I also just read a news that an autistics just murdered his father. This really make me wonder one thing, how little support our society gives support to such kids when they were young.

This society of mine view everything that is not normal as abnormal. Main stream medicine will treat it as they are sick or as a disease. To me, this is really not true. When a child at birth, his or her brain is really pre-program with all the senses all wired-up. So a child is not born with autism. A child becomes autistics due to external factors such as vaccinations, although some said it is not proven yet. However, the statistics of kids having autism after taking their vaccines cannot be ignored. Between the moment the child was born until he or she reaches 4 to 5 years old, the brain is experiencing exponential growth. Autism is a symptoms whereby the brain is experiencing blockage and it is attempting to re-wire. Thus, it is critical that a child experience different methods of coaching to new senses so that the brain can start a new program. I will recommend these books for reading:
To enable the re-wiring of the brain, it requires a multiple approach to it. What this blog entry will do is to focus on the nutritional approach to autism. Having, it is important for the parent to focus in other areas as well such as activities and etc...

The nutritional requirements of an autistic child is to focus on protecting and developing the brain. What does it mean? Protecting the brain means to reduce the oxidative stress which the brain experience. Developing brain means giving enough nutrients for the brain to spawn new neuron networks. This is the re-wiring phase.

Vitamins and minerals required:

  • Calcium: Plays a critical role in normal brain function
  • Magnesium: One of the key minerals to maintain proper brain metabolism
  • COQ10: Improve cell energy producing factory
  • B Complex: Improves mood and blood circulation
  • Vitamin A, C and E: Anti-oxidant (Requires a high level for the body)
  • Fish Oil: Good for the brain

Other important requirements:
  • Eat raw as much as possible. That means eating a lot of salads, fruits and etc...
  • Eat organic. To prevents heavy metals, pesticides and etc... from entering the body.
  • Complex carbohydrate. Constant release of energy. A simple carbohydrate diet will cause the body blood sugar to spike, which will cause mood swing.
  • No bad oil stuffs such as deep fried meat or preserve meat such as bacons.
  • No sugared drink
  • No caffeinated drink
  • Gluten free diet. People with autism has difficulty digesting casein
  • Clean filtered water to avoid pollutants from water that will affect the brain. Not distilled.
  • Eat frequent small meals rather than 3 big meals. Helps to maintain blood sugar
  • Dairy free diet. Cow's milk is an allergen
Supplements for children:
  • Chewable calcium/magnesium: Let them chew 3 tablets a day
  • Chewable multi-vitamin: Let them chew as much as they want. Take it like a treat for them
  • Chewable vitamin C: Let them chew as much as possible
  • B-complex: 1/1/1/-
  • Protein Powder: 1/-/-/1
  • Salmon Omega 3 fish oil: 1/1/-/- ( take it if they can swallow)
Supplements for adult:
  • Double X: 1/-/1/-
  • Calcium Magnesium: Take according to bottle instructions
  • Bio-C: 4/4/4/4 (if they can take more will be good)
  • Lecithin E: 4/4/4/4 (If can increase to 8 per intake will be good)
  • Multi-carotene: 3/3/3/3 until skin or palm turn orange then stop taking. Once colour is cleared, continue
  • COQ10: Take according to bottle instructions
  • Salmon Omega 3 fish oil: 1/1/1/-
  • Protein Powder: 2/-/-/2
  • B-complex: 3/3/3/-
  • Milk Thistle: -/-/-/4 to ensure proper liver function
Please remember, this is just one part of the puzzles. There are more that needs to be done. However, the window of opportunity is small and thus, take action now.

Lastly, as a parent, you have to stay positive, read as much as possible and never give up.

Staying Young

Recently, some of my friends were discussing how to stay young and look good. Some had even talk about what products to use to stay young. Actually after much thought, I want to take this opportunity to pen down my thoughts.

In my opinion, the 4 pillars of staying young wil be nutrition, positive mind, sleep and of course, products for the face. Staying young is all about inside out. If internally is not well taken care, it will show extenally. Not matter how much money we put on the face, it will not work.

So why do we age? It is simply because we did not replace what has been used up by the body. Isn't that simple? Yet many people just doesn't get it.

The 2 basic foundation that the body is made of are both protein and water. Without protein, nothing can be build. Without water, nothing can flow in the body. Yet, many of us did not take quality protein or drink clean water for the body. For example, deep fried meat is bad protein whereas steamed is good. Soft drink is bad whereas filtered water is good. Once we understand this basic principle, staying young becomes a norm actually. The body works based on the basis that resources will always be shifted to ensure the body stay alive. Give you more examples. If our blood is acidic, then we will lose calcium that leads to osteporisis. So the problem is acidic blood, not lack of calcium. If the body needs more vitamin C to fight oxidative stess, then vitamin C will be released into the bloodstream by breaking down the skin. That's how our skin becomes inelastic.

  • Collagen: vitamin C and protein
  • Bones: calcium, magnesium, protein and vitamin C.
  • Brain: EPA, DHA, vitamin A,B,C,E
  • Liver: Fish oil and milk thistle plus qualty sleep
  • Kidney: vitamin C and filtered water
  • Eyes: carotenoids
  • Lung: carotenoids
  • Nails and hair: quality protein

May I suggest the following supplements with these schedules:
Before breakfast/after lunch/after dinner/before sleep

Protein powder: 2/-/-/2
Positron: 1/-/-/ (optional)
Double X: 1/-1/-
Bio-C: 3/4/3/4
B-complex: 3/3/3/- (urine will turn yellow. It's normal)
Mult-carotene: 1/1/1/1 (if skin or palm turn orange, stop. Once colour goes away, repeat)
Lecithin E: 4/4/4/4
Fish Oil: 1/1/-/-
Calcium/Magnesium: take according to bottle instructions.
Milk Thistle: 4 before sleep. ( breast feeding or pregnant ladies please consult doctors)

Besides taking supplements, a healthy diet with enough sleep and a positive mind is a winning formula to stay young. And of course, must drink clean filtered water, not distilled.
