Autism, Environment, Subtypes and Remissions


We interviewed Norm Schwartz MD, a functional medicine doctor, about the intersection of autism, environment, subtypes and remissions.
The statistics are staggering, with the CDC showing that one in 36 children children have an autism diagnosis.
We all hear about “autism awareness” these days, but what about autism recovery?
And what about so many kids these days on anti-depressants and anti-psychotics?
Although you aren’t likely to hear it from your child’s pediatrician, psychiatrist, neurologist or therapists, recovery from autism is possible if you’re working with an integrative, functional-medicine doctor or naturopath who looks for the root causes of these disorders, such as Norm Schwartz MD.
Find out what these root causes are and how addressing them can lead to your child’s recovery by watching this webinar.
You can find Dr. Schwartz’s presentation for the webinar here.
In addition, you can find the article that he co-wrote with Russ Jaffe MD PhD, Anthropogenic Influences on Biology and the Biota, and Connections to autism Spectrum Disorders here.
Please note that you will be asked to enter your email address at the 30-minute mark to finish viewing the video.
