Autism: A Multi-System Oxidative and Inflammatory Disorder with Dr. Robin Bernhoft
August 31, 2010
Hosted by Teri Arranga
Oxidative stress and inflammation are key features of the pathophysiology of most chronic illness. Patients with autism spectrum disorders have measurable evidence of oxidative stress in virtually every organ system that has been assessed. Join Teri and Dr. Bernhoft as they discuss this and other topics. From his son's situation with Down syndrome and autism to his own environmentally-induced illness, Robin Bernhoft’s personal experience has shown him that many environmental diseases are treatable with modern biochemical techniques. His clinic is dedicated to treating each patient as a biologically-unique individual who lives in a unique situation, with a unique diet and lifestyle interacting with a unique genetic background. For most people, it is possible to undo much and sometimes all of the damage they have accumulated over the years. It is also possible to identify risk factors of future illness and nip it in the bud before it develops. Please visit http://bernhoftcam.com
