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?”

Iodine: A great antifungal and disinfectant against mold

Iodine: A great antifungal and disinfectant against mold

Iodine has been used medicinally for well over 2,000 years.  Many medical doctors in the 19th century claimed it as an empirical remedy, a real ” heroic remedy” —-a true present from the science of medicine to mankind.

Nobel Laureate Albert Szent Györgyi, the physician who discovered Vitamin C in 1928, commented: “When I was a medical student, iodine in the form of universal medicine. Nobody knew what it did, but it did something and did something good.”

Many people who read the Mold Safe Solutions website have issues with toxic mold illness and fungal infections. The good news is that iodine is a great antifungal. When it is directly applied directly to a mold (fungus) growing on your skin, nails, and teeth, it will kill the mold and bacteria often within 90 seconds and prevent further growth. (more…)

Cat’s Claw: A great natural treatment for your illness

Cat’s Claw: A great natural treatment for your illness

My family and I have been sick (fungal infection) for the toxic effects of mold for the last five years due to living in a home we rented for five years that was seriously infected by toxic mold. In researching natural treatment methods to help treat and cure our illnesses, I have found that there are various natural anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant herbal supplements, vitamins and minerals for nutrition that we can take daily to help us as part of our health protocol.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Fungal Infections and Mold Toxicity

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Fungal Infections and Mold Toxicity

The facts are you can normally go 3 days without water and 30 days without food, but you will die within 3 minutes of having no oxygen. It is that important! This gas is simply one of the most important to all life on earth. But it is also one of the most overlooked, and underappreciated treatments by many alternative, holistic and naturopathic medical professionals.

I have found that oxygen supplementation through methods such as hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), can be very beneficial for people with various diseases, and illnesses such as mold toxicity and fungal infections. It can also aid in the recovery of serious injuries and wounds. In fact, it can heal some people when no other treatment could. (more…)

Glutathione to Help Detox Your Body

Glutathione to Help Detox Your Body

“If you haven’t heard of glutathione yet, you will. In terms of staying healthy, it is one of the most important molecules in the body.” – Dr. Mark Hyman, founder of The UltraWellness Center

There are several supplements that my family takes and that I also recommend to others who have become ill and or are suffering from toxic mold (fungus) exposure. One of these is called glutathione. (more…)

The Antifungal, Antibacterial and Cancer Fighting Properties of Garlic

The Antifungal, Antibacterial and Cancer Fighting Properties of Garlic

“Garlic then have power to save from death. Bear with it though it maketh unsavory breath, And scorn not garlic like some that think. It only maketh men wink and drink and stink.” – The Englishman’s Doctor, Sir John Harrington (1609)

Garlic has long been known for its incredible antifungal, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiparasitic and anticancer agents. Garlic is vegetable which kills fungus, yeast, bacteria, parasites and has antitumor agents. It contains allicin that has been proven to be a great antifungal agent to fight against micro-organisms that cause illness and disease such as Candida, Aspergillus and Cryptococci.

My family has been using garlic and taking garlic supplements over the last year as part of our health protocol to fight against our mold illness. We believe that it has been one of the key factors in our diets that has helped us get better. Hence, I write from personal experience and the research below helps support these facts. (more…)
