The Epoch TimesAutism Reversal in Twin Girls Through Lifestyle and Environmental Changes: New Study

Personalized lifestyle and environmental changes demonstrate significant potential in reversing severe autism symptoms, highlighting the importance of individualized approaches and parental involvement in ASD management.

A recent case study published in the Journal of Personalized Medicine reveals that personalized lifestyle and environmental interventions led to the reversal of severe autism symptoms in fraternal twin girls. Diagnosed with level 3 severity Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) at 20 months, the twins underwent comprehensive, non-pharmacological treatments tailored to their unique needs, resulting in dramatic improvements in social interactions, communication skills, and behavioral patterns over two years.

Key Points:

  • The case study involved fraternal twin girls diagnosed with level 3 ASD at 20 months.
  • Personalized, non-drug interventions included dietary changes, supplements, various therapies, and environmental modifications.
  • Dietary changes eliminated glutamate, gluten, casein, sugar, artificial colors, and processed foods, focusing on organic, home-cooked meals.
  • Supplements included omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and homeopathic remedies tailored to each twin’s genetic needs.
  • The twins received Applied Behavior Analysis, speech therapy, and occupational therapy focused on neuro-sensory motor reflex integration.
  • An environmental consultant evaluated home air quality, moisture levels, and water damage to reduce toxin exposure.
  • One twin received osteopathic care, leading to notable improvements in communication and overall disposition.
  • The Autism Treatment Evaluation Checklist scores showed dramatic improvements: one twin’s score dropped from 76 to 36, and the other from 43 to 4 over seven months.
  • Parental involvement and education were crucial, with parents learning about allostatic load and using resources like Epidemic Answers.
  • The study highlights the significant role of lifestyle and environmental factors in ASD symptom manifestation and improvement.
  • The engagement and commitment of parents or caregivers are vital for effective personalized treatment.

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data, in 2000, 1 in 150 children had a diagnosis of ASD, but their most recent data state that in 2020, 1 in 36 children had a diagnosis of ASD, which represents more than a 300 percent increase in the past two decades.
