(Pfeiffer)/VaccinesOmega-3 fatty acids are
shown to be very important and effective in a treatment program for many people
with neurological conditions. There are studies where it made significant
differences in ADD, depression, bipolar, epilepsy, etc. So why not autism? It is
being tried with good results in some. Most people on the traditional American
diet are quite low in omega-3 fatty acids, if not outright deficient. DHA is not
proving to be a key element. EPA is the key element. EPA. Hands-down, use OmegaBrite
for school age kids and adults. If a younger child will not take it, use
Coromega because it is good quality and tastes decent. Coromega does contain
vanillin which is an artificial flavor, if this is a concern. [My note: people
with phenol intolerance very often have problems with artificial additives.]
Flax seed was "okay" but not as good with some side-effects which may
be a concern. Skip the algae, seaweed, kelp, etc because humans don't metabolize
it well and there are contamination concerns. Consume the fish/ fish oil because
the fish metabolizes it right, and then humans can metabolize it from the fish
[know your place on the food chain]. EPA – OmegaBrite.
This is the recommendation of the presenter, but you probably want to look into
The metallothionein research by Pfieffer. Good, exciting stuff.
Basically, it shows too much copper via some pathways I will specify in another
post on this presentation, with too low of zinc. So, add more zinc. A lot more
zinc. They said like 150-200 mg of zinc. I have always been told not to go over
100 mg of zinc for an adult, but these are the numbers said more than once.
Please look into this more before buying a truckload of zinc. How to correct the
metallothionein problem? It will vary for each individual and isn't completely
worked out at this time. It does involve cleaning up the gut for starters.
And add more zinc. Drs. Holmes and El-Dahl will be updating their protocol to
incorporate new metallothionein/mercury information. This will be on their site
NOTE: Amber had a chance to speak with Dr. Walsh afterwards and he said the
extra zinc was only for special cases, so don't go piling on the excessive zinc
unless a doctor specifies your child needs it. thanks, Amber.
There was some significantly positive new developments and statements on the
mercury/vaccine issue that several of the doctors testified this summer for.
Sorry, I did not understand them entirely except that it was a significant
victory for the home team. Please refer to the web sites of Dr. Amy Holmes, Dr.
Jeff Bradstreet, Dr. Andrew Wakefield or ARI
for more information. Basically, they concluded that someone approving mercury
in thimerasol in vaccines made a big mistake, there was a bit of a cover-up, and
research on the matter is valid and needs to be funded.
