New ideas about autism

Dr. Shauna Young has been working with children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders for more than five years and always looks forward to April as Autism Awareness Month, but with ever-diminishing expectations.
Instead of rehashing the same stagnant information that encourages people to simply “accept” the absence of forward progress, Dr. Young believes that this Autism Awareness Month should instead draw attention to the fact that despite many years and countless millions of dollars of public contributions toward research for ailments that strike higher percentages of our children than any other, that the international incidences of autism actually continue to steadily rise with no apparent abatement
“I strongly believe that the high majority of the incidences of these and many other psychological and behavioral conditions in both children and adults are being directly caused or at the very least contributed to, by improper food and nutritional choices and other avoidable environmental factors,” she said. She added that although there has not yet been a funded clinical study on her work, she has both seen and received back countless confirmations that her dietary protocol is delivering both clinical and family managed results for a multitude of individuals on a consistent basis.
“I know that these days everyone and their brother seem to have their own theory about what constitutes proper and improper nutritional practices.” she added. “However, in this particular case, I believe that the rapid positive results we’re consistently producing are undeniable and self-evident. Not only can we greatly reduce the human and financial costs of future occurrences of these disorders, but using food-based therapies we can also improve or reverse a high percentage of existing cases. Once the research community at large decides to join us, we’ll do even better.”
Dr. Shauna Young received her Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Natural Sciences from the University of Natural Medicine in Santa Fe, NM. Since 2001 she has been practicing in Colorado as a Traditional Naturopath within the disciplines of her continuing certification with the American Naturopathic Certification Board (ANCB) and as a Certified Biofeedback Specialist with the Natural Therapies Certification Board (NTCB).
