In the 1980s 1 in 2,000 people were diagnosed with autism; now the rate is 1 in 50. If you look at the autism spectrum, it’s 1 in 36. Unfortunately, autism is a massive epidemic in the United States and it’s also predicted to get worse. Boys are five times more likely than girls to be diagnosed with autism. Most kids aren’t diagnosed until they’re 2 or 3.
For a family who has a child who is autistic, they can expect to pay about $60,000 a year to try to get proper care. There’s no medical detection or a cure right now.
We consider autism a locked-in syndrome. Children with autism often have issues with social skills, behavior, as well as speech and communication difficulties. Immune suppression is also involved in autism, and a considerable gut imbalance is going on. A lot of kids have stomach problems, diarrhea, constipation, IBS and a whole host of other things that are related back to that diagnosis.
We believe that chiropractic plays a critical role in managing autism. You are invited to attend our Perfect Storm workshop. This in-depth workshop will last about 60-90 minutes.

During the workshop, we will discuss how birth trauma plays a role in the development of autism. It’s our belief that the cause of autism goes back to the birth. Did you know that 90% of kids who come in with autism spectrum disorders have some degree of birth trauma? Such trauma could result from a delivery that involved C-section, forceps, vacuum or early induction.
We will teach what we believe are the three causes of autism: thoughts, traumas and toxins. The level of stress that children are experiencing now at such a young age is at an all-time high. So these three T’s lead to interference within children’s neurodevelopment and irritation to their brain and lives, as well as inflammation of the body and the neurology of the body.
If kids’ bodies are stuck in this fight or flight response from a young age that’s what suppresses their development. Through chiropractic, we can address any irritation early on instead of waiting until a child gets diagnosed at 2 or 3. The result is a better outcome for kids.
