Title: Why not prevent Autism
As we approach 1 in 45 boys on the Autism Spectrum by age 5 and a 250 billion dollar annual price tag in cost, imagine a world where there is very little autism. A world that prevents autism.
And HOW would that be possible?
AutismSpeaks states "in most instances, autism is likely caused by a combination of genetic risk factors that interact with environmental risk factors." Wikipedia states: "Genetic factors may be the most significant cause for autism spectrum disorders. Early studies of twins had estimated heritability to be over 90%, meaning that genetics explains over 90% of whether a child will develop autism. Environmental factors that have been claimed to contribute to autism or exacerbate its symptoms, or that may be important to consider in future research, include certain foods, infectious disease, heavy metals, solvents, diesel exhaust, PCBs, phthalates and phenols used in plastic products, pesticides, brominated flame retardants, alcohol, smoking, illicit drugs, and vaccines. Among these factors, vaccines have attracted much attention, as parents may first become aware of autistic symptoms in their child around the time of a routine vaccination."
We can improve epigenetic factors?
Absolutely. Announcing a major discovery in my practice of Holistic Bioenergetics, and that is: Epigenetic expression of metabolism can be modulated, it can be changed and harmonized. And epigenetic changes are HERITABLE! Chronic and sub-acute infections can be resolved 100%. This will decrease stress on the genome. That means Allergies can be eliminated – and that’s heritable. Detox capabilities can be improved – and that’s heritable. Chronic infections can be resolved – and that can’t but be helpful for healthy epigenetic expression. Case studies available.
NAET, a manual bioenergetics technique, was shown to cure 88% of the treated children. Journal of Integrative Medicine – Vol.10, No.5 – Oct/Nov 2011
One explanation about the mechanisms involved is given in this article: "Research in animal models has shown that RNAs can be inherited and that RNA methyltransferases can be important for the transmission and expression of modified phenotypes in the next generation. We discuss possible mechanisms of RNA-mediated inheritance and the role of these mechanisms for human health and disease."

This review of research the phenomenon of early-life influences on epigenetics in the context of childhood abesity. "we discuss the recent evidence that shows that early-life environment can induce altered epigenetic regulation leading to the induction of an altered phenotype. The demonstration of a role for altered epigenetic regulation of genes in the developmental induction of obesity opens the possibility that interventions, either through nutrition or specific drugs, may modify long-term obesity risk and combat this rapid rise in obesity."

The intervention which I propose in the prevention of autism is a bioenergetic protocol represented by the SHOW Technique (Straile’s Holistic Options for Wellness). It is an epigenetic modulation protocol administered by Quantum Biofeedback technology. The protocol consist of part standardized protocol and part individually tailored feedbacks derived from individual reactivity scans. The standardized part addresses metabolic errors as in food allergies as well as chemical and environmental sensitivities. The individual protocol addresses every infection discovered by reactivity (evoked potential).
Standard protocol, 20:
Gluten, Candida/Yeast, Vitamin B Complex, Eggs/chicken, Sugars, Dairy/Milk, Soy/Beans, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Iron, Iodine, Minerals, Pollen, Hayfever, Basic Molds, Animal Dander/Hair, Formaldehyde.
Individual protocol, 10:
Viruses, Bacteria, Parasites, Fungi as they present individually.
This desensitization protocol will be administered per IMAET System Quantum Biofeedback over 30 sessions. The subjects will be expecting mothers up to 6 months of pregnancy, as well as infants up to 2 years of age. No other interventions or restrictions are part of this study. The subjects are expected to follow their regular obstetric supervision of their pregnancy and pediatric follow-up of the infants. Vaccinations are subject to parent/pediatrician discretion, but do not have to be avoided. A follow-up exam / history of the infant at age 5 will conclude the experiment.
I hypothesize that this desensitization protocol, administered over a period of 15 to 30 weeks will significantly reduce the incidence of ASD by age 5. We will compare the study group to the general population statistics. This is a Pilot Study with a population of 100 subjects.
