AUTISM, SPECIAL NEEDS (E.G., ADD, ADHD, PERVASIVE DEVELOPMENT DISORDER) AND FUNGAL TOXINS WEBINAR RECAP
Autism and other special needs individuals often have biochemical and nutritional imbalances that contribute to language, socialization, and behavioral problems. In some situations, these issues are exacerbated by fungal toxins linked to chronic candidiasis and mold-produced compounds. For example, chemical aldehydes from fungus are known to be highly reactive compounds that need to be converted to less toxic forms via converting enzymes and phase detoxification within the liver. These aldehydes and other compounds can have detrimental effects within the body. The use of various nutrients such as N-acetylcysteine (NAC), etc. are often essential in supporting the body against fungal toxins. This lecture designed for health professionals, as well as parents and caregivers will discuss new information related to certain fungal toxins and strategies for treatment.
