Autism - Is it Curable?

before a change had occurred) and 'recovery' (which indicates the act of regaining
health that was previously lost).
Traditional medicine, and even those in the biomedical community realize that there
is no known cure for autism, although there are many different types of treatments,
including biomedical autism interventions, that can help tremendously. Treatments
include, diet (including the gluten-free and casein-free diet, and the specific
carbohydrate diet), nutritional support (including multivitamin/minerals), Methyl-B12,
hyperbaric oxygen, detoxification, anti-fungal therapy, and more, as well as
non-biomedical intervention such as applied behavior analysis (ABA), speech and
occupational therapy. Even traditional medicine has treatments which are mostly
drug oriented such as Risperidal to suppress aberrant behavior. However, none of
these treatments are curative.
Personally, I do not use the word 'cure' in my writings, lectures, consultations, or
internet postings when discussing the various biomedical treatments available for
autism spectrum disorders. Instead, the more appropriate word to use is 'recover.'
The simple analogy is this: If you had an accident and fractured your arm or leg, and
over time your limb fracture healed to the point that movement in your arm or leg
was restored and appeared indistinguishable from before the accident, this would
indicate a recovery from your injury. However, your bones would still have suffered
the injury and therefore an absolute cure from the accident is not possible. You still
had the fracture. However, normal function in your arm or leg has been regained.
A similar concept can apply to autism. Children are not cured from their autism.
Instead some children can recover, losing their diagnosis, and appear indistinguishable
from their peers. In these cases their autism was reversed, most or all symptoms of
their disorder have disappeared, and they now function typical of other children, but
they will always have had what is classified as autism.
Don't let ANYONE tell you there is nothing you can do to help your child. Autism really
is treatable! Start your child down the road to recovery from autism. Biomedical
Autism treatments and therapies have resulted in many, many children improving -
even losing their autism-spectrum disorder diagnosis. For more information and a

A Biomedical Autism Doctor Explains
The Difference Between Being
"Cured" From Autism And
"Recovering" From Autism.
"Is Autism curable?" This is a question
that is has been asked for years in
the medical community as well as the
autism community. The question of
'cure' is a good one, but needs a
deeper explanation. To fully
understand this concept of cure more
clearly we need to make a distinction
between what would commonly be
called 'cured' (which indicates to
return to a previous state of health
