Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 29, 2016 -- It is widely known that appropriate nutrition is essential to good health. It has also been established that nutrients can contribute to how genes are expressed and to levels of mental performance.
At the AutismOne 2016 Conference, Dr. William Walsh, president of the nonprofit Walsh Research Institute and author of the book Nutrient Power, will speak on “Epigenetics and Autism Prevention.” According to Walsh, “There is increasing evidence that autism is an epigenetic gene-regulation disorder. Epigenetic disorders typically involve many cases of sudden onset after an environmental insult and a complex condition that may persist a lifetime. However, an advantage of epigenetic disorders is that prevention appears relatively easy to achieve.” Dr. Walsh’s presentation will describe a novel autism-prevention strategy based on preserving DNA integrity through special lab tests and antioxidant protocols. Walsh received his doctorate in chemical engineering, and he has been active in autism research for more than 20 years, having worked with more than 6,000 ASD families. He has presented at more than 30 international conferences.
Albert Mensah, MD, cofounder of Mensah Medical and former primary physician of the original Pfeiffer Treatment Center, will talk at the AutismOne 2016 Conference about “Bio-Nutrient Therapy: An evidence-based model for autism recovery.” Dr. Mensah stated that “targeted nutritional and biochemical interventions can help correct the root cause of a child's learning, behavioral, and developmental issues; moodiness; depression; anxiety; phobias; fears; trouble concentrating; restlessness; tantrums; and rage as they relate to autism.” Mensah will present the science behind recent advances in biochemical, nutritional, and genetic therapies along with information on digestive issues, heavy metal overload, brain inflammation, and nutrient deficiencies or overloads.
David Hardy will speak on “Optimizing functionality, stabilizing mood, and eliminating aggression in autism with essential element therapy.” Mr. Hardy shared that “essential element deficiencies are the most logical and likely cause of increases in illness in the population. Clinical nutrition is now focusing on a broad-spectrum approach that is proving to be clearly the most beneficial to human health and is producing amazing responses, documented in published research. Multiple nutrient insufficiencies can produce damage to the brain as serious as high levels of heavy metals or other toxins. Astounding research illustrates that unique nutritional supplementation can reverse brain cell damage and deterioration caused by various factors. Autism has shown exciting clinical responses to this type of specialized clinical nutrition in published research, emphasizing the absolute necessity of supplying adequate levels of all the essential nutrients to meet individual needs.” For the last two decades Hardy has worked closely with doctors and independent researchers to investigate the use of micronutrients for mood, anxiety, and behavior-related conditions.
