(Author's note - Further discussions with Dr. Kane have allowed me to significantly improve and deepen the science of this article. Worth reading again!)
Let me be clear. I hate the expression “autism puzzle.” The only time I’ll have the slightest affection for it is when it’s used in a sentence such as “The autism puzzle has been solved.”
This article delves into theories which will hopefully bring that day closer. I don’t say the theory expressed here is true. But it's interesting. And I believe it’s worth discussion.
In the recently published book, “Food and Nutrients in Disease Management”, ($133 on Amazon) edited by Ingrid Kohlstadt is a chapter entitled “Autistic Spectrum Disorder: Dynamic Intervention for Neuronal Membrane Stabilization” by Patricia Kane, Ph.D, Annette Cartaxo, M.D., and Richard Deth, Ph.D. In the chapter a number of interesting claims are made. I believe they’re consistent with the experiences of many people with autism, and if verified, provide a clear picture of what has gone wrong with the disease, and more importantly, the road out of autism and other neurological disorders.
