Autism Treatment - A Biomedical Approach

By Dr. Kurt Woeller
I'd like to discuss my feelings about biomedical interventions for Autism and talk about the reasons why I think it is important to begin a biomedical approach for your child. I lecture around the country and talk on these videos on my website about how important biomedical intervention is. But one thing to recognize is that when we look to implement a biomedical protocol whether that is through diet, supplements, etc, we are really assessing the underlying medical issues.
What that can entail is the use of diagnostic testing, urine, stool, blood, etc. In order to look for imbalances. The imbalances could be nutritional like vitamins and minerals, essential fats or amino acids. Or the imbalances could be biochemical or involve digestive problems. Kids may not be digesting their food appropriately and they may have chronic diarrhea or chronic constipation. So regardless of the diagnosis of the child, I think we can all agree that the right assessment is still needed. But often a label of Autism can exclude a child from getting the appropriate assessment for these underlying medical disorders.
First and foremost I want to know what is going on with my patient's health, as their biomedical specialist. That is the reason for the testing that we use. But that does not mean that I can say that one specific therapy will treat a certain core set of symptoms or eradicate them completely. But, when you address the underlying medical issues of a child with Autism and you look at the diagnostic results and treat accordingly, in many cases you can have an improvement in the individual's Autism and in some cases it can go away. When we use a biomedical treatment approach what we really are doing is optimizing the individual's potential.
You are evaluating the underlying medical issues and addressing them as appropriate. Whether the person has a diagnosis of Autism or not should not matter in the diagnosis and treatment of these specific underlying health issues. The Autism diagnosis should not impede the use of diagnostic testing to ensure that your child is as healthy as they can be. It does require a unique and specialized physician's approach to implement some of this testing and the therapies that we use. But when you take a step back, you realize that what we are doing is to optimize the potential of the individual. And some of the ways we do that are through nutrition, supplementation and diagnostic testing.
Autism really is treatable! Biomedical Autism treatments and therapies have resulted in many, many children improving, or even even losing their autism-spectrum disorder diagnosis.
