Lyme Disease Causes Dementia and Memory Loss

Bacteria and dementia: a short historical overview There are many known causes of dementia, with bacteria being one of them. Despite the historic and modern significance of bacterial influence in the research of dementia and memory loss, they are currently commonly ignored. Hundreds of years ago, there was only one known reason for dementia was known: syphilis, which is also caused by bacteria. In the progress of this disease, initally nerves become infected, and eventually infection reaches the brain and starts doing damage from the inside. The last stage of syphilis is dementia, also called neurosyphilis. Alois Alzherimer himself only wrote on dementia present in neurosyphilis, and it was only the head of psychiatry department where Alzheimer worked, Emil Kraepelin, […]

Autism, Part V: Liver Detoxification

Detoxification of the liver and causes of its dysfunctions A dysfunctional liver detoxification process leads to an accumulation of toxins, both external (taken in from the environment) as well as internal (produced by sources such as harmful microorganisms). For example, endogenous alcohol, is much more active than the exogenous one. This causes phenomena such as losing consciousness after drinking only a small amount of beer, wine, or spirit. Why? The drunk alcohol cumulates with endogenous alcohol, changing consciousness and perception. There have been situations when court medicine has acquitted people in such cases. If the liver does not fulfil its role correctly, the brain comes under attack. If the liver was able to detox all of the toxins, there would […]

Autism, Part IV: Intestinal Toxins

Intestinal toxins If we looked at autism as a tree, the roots would be genetic changes, the branches – intestinal diseases, incorrect diet, bacteria, inflammation, imbalanced or weakened immune system, and the trunk, the bottleneck, would be toxins, which constitute the biggest problem in autism. The brain of autistic children is flooded by neurotoxins, e.g.: ammonia, endomorphin, and false neurotransmitter, changing brain signals and causing various disorders of consciousness. One of such false neurotransmitters is alcohol. These toxins may severely alter perceptions of a person, in much the same way as alcohol abuse does. Increased level of ammonia may pose a mortal danger. It is present in, among others, a well-known disease: hepatic encephalopathy. The symptoms of this disease, present […]

Autism, Part III – Autism and Intestinal Diseases

Autism and intestinal diseases according to American Academy of Pediatrics. GI tract diseases related to autism may present mostly as behavioral problems: changes in behavior, increased irritability or reclusiveness, autoaggression and aggression, unexplained screams, sleep disorders. These symptoms may be indicative of intestine diseases, because often autistic children cannot directly state that they are suffering or what the problem is. GI tract problems do not necessarily present as physical ailments such as diarrhea or constipation. This is why autistic children should be carefully and thoroughly diagnosed. We also need to rise the awareness among medical service providers, that autistic children may have this kind of problems and they need special, in-depth diagnostics. Diet needs to be under strict dietician and […]

Autism, Part II: Complex disease, complex treatment

Autism is currently considered a multi-factor environmental disease with a genetic basis. What this means, is that environmental influences may cause congenital changes to activate, leading to nervous system dysfunctions, which eventually manifest as autism. It is a heterogeneous disease, meaning that the course of the disease may significantly vary from one child to the next. It depends on disease basis, on the activating factor for genetic changes, as well as on the severity of autism spectrum comorbidities. This definitely makes a diagnosis more difficult. This is why each patient should be treated individually and carefully examined in order to determine his greatest problem. Most common and most important diseases related to autism are: 1. intestine diseases, GI tract dysfunctions […]

The Autism Epidemic: Part I

Integrative medicine (also called functional medicine) is an integrated and individual approach towards patient’s problems. Based on a thorough diagnosis, it seeks the root of serious, chronic conditions and treats not their symptoms, but their causes. Integrative medicine allows us an early detection and prevention of many civilizational diseases and problems related to ageing. Integrative medicine focuses more on “treating the patient” than on “treating the disease,” by taking into account the biochemical and immunological diversity of each body, as well as exposure to external factors, such as environmental poisoning, in combination with patient’s unique reaction to these factors. Integrative medicine considers “health” to be vitality, the ability to properly function in society, and the ability to enjoy life to […]
