Antifungal Medications Help Autistic Children the Most

Antifungal Medications Help Autistic Children the Most

I would like to share with you an interesting survey from 2009 by the Autism Research Institute of over 27,000 parents’ reports that parents find antifungals, diets, and supplements to be the most effective remedies for improvement in their autistic children. I believe the most important take from this research is that the prescription antifungals outperformed ALL the other prescription drugs.

This is important news for parents because many of these autistic children have severe gastrointestinal problems and fungi AKA molds appear to be causing the most harm. The list of symptoms connected to the GI tract in autistic children also mimic the same GI issues for people who have been exposed to toxic mold and have fungal infections as a result. The main fungal culprit implicated in autism is Candida albicans (Edelson, 2006).

You can trust this research because since 1967 the Autism Research Institute has been collecting parent ratings of the usefulness of the many interventions tried on their autistic children. There is simply no agency in the world that can come close to the research and data on autism that they have collected over the last 50 years.

The data collected from the parent’s responses were based on a six-point scale that was divided into three categories: “made worse” (ratings 1 and 2), “no effect” (ratings 3 and 4), and “made better” (ratings 5 and 6). The “Better:Worse” column gives the number of children who “Got Better” for each one who “Got Worse.”

As I mentioned above, incredibly, the prescription antifungals performed the best out of every single prescription drug. For example, the parents who reported using the antifungal Diflucan saw 62% of the children get better and only 5% get worse. The parents who used the antifungal Nystatin saw 52% of the autistic children’s behavioral problems get better and only 5% get worse.

One of my favorite mentors and authors, Doug Kaufman from Know the Cause had made the connection between antifungals helping autism in 2013. Kaufman said that n 2007-scientists publish that the drug “Suramin” has powerful antifungal properties

He said that is 2013 the San Diego School of Medicine researchers have discovered that a drug called “Suramin” corrected autism-like symptoms in mice. San Diego researchers state that their success using Suramin for autism, “offers a fresh and exciting new path that could lead to the development of a new class of drugs to treat autism.”

Kaufman emphasized, “Better research and safe drugs already exist to treat autism!”

In 1998, Neurologist Jay Lombard published (The Brain Wellness Plan) that the harmless gut antifungal drug Nystatin arrested autism symptoms in children he treated. May I suggest sparing we tax payers a $1 billion dollar price tag to “development of a new class of drugs to treat autism” and spare children the exposure to new (and most likely, toxic) drug development?

He concluded, “Don’t researchers use Google searches to show that this work has already been done?”

Estrella de Mar Rd. , Carlsbad, Ca. Mold Damage & Remediation

Estrella de Mar Rd. , Carlsbad, Ca. Mold Damage & Remediation

The homeowners of the property below called me out after their family was experiencing severe allergy and asthma symptoms. All three of the children who lived here had suffered from asthma and flu like symptoms since they moved in the property two years ago.

I inspected the interior of the property and I found no active mold growing inside the home. The door to the water heater and that HVAC unit for the home is was locked.

When I opened the doors, I discovered why the whole family was sick. Here are some pictures of the mold I found.

Samples proved that it was aspergillus.

Not only will they have to have this closet enclosure remediated and the HVAC system replaced, they will also have to clean out the ducting and the whole house will have to be remediated.

Mold Shuts Down Holly Glen Elementary School in New Jersey

Mold Shuts Down Holly Glen Elementary School in New Jersey

Moldy schools are a huge epidemic all across the US. There is not a week that goes by where there is not some school being shut down like the New Jersey school in this story and or parents fighting against uncaring and ignorant administrators do something for their sick children.

NBC Philadelphia reports:

“Holly Glen Elementary School dismissed for the last time for months on Thursday to allow for remediation and repairs after mold was discovered covering ceiling tiles, lockers, and classrooms. The mold was confirmed by tests on Wednesday night.

Now, parents are concerned about how long the mold has been in the building and what risks it posed to their children.

For some parents, though, this is coming too late.

Roberta West says her son got sick at Holly Glen 20-years ago.

“My heart cries for them because my son got very, very sick when he was little when he was at the school,” West said.

While Earling said Holly Glen will be ready for students to return in early 2018, parents are now calling for all schools in the district to be tested for mold.

“Working estimates tell us that there should be more than 5 million species of fungi,” said Cheryl Kuske, a Los Alamos scientist on the project.

Tree of life still holds mysteries in the fungal world–millions of them

LOS ALAMOS, N.M., – In a step toward bridging the gap between fungal taxonomy and molecular ecology, scientists from several institutions including Los Alamos National Laboratory have characterized a sample of “mystery” fungus collected in North Carolina and found its home in the fungal tree of life.
