Just released 6/19: A blood test that can diagnose autism. This test measures metabolites from both the methionine cycle and the transsulfuration pathway and was about 96% accurate. This proves what parents have been saying all along- that AUTISM IS MEDICAL!
If you look at the diagrams below you can see that certain genetic SNPs play a role in our bodies ability to function and detoxify. MTHFR and CBS SNPs are just a few that impact the methylation cycle. The methylation cycle along with the transsulfuration pathway is what makes glutathione which is our bodies main antioxidant and detoxifier.
Epigenetics, or outside factors such as toxins, can turn on or off these genetic SNPs. If the body is unable to detox when exposed to the large amounts of toxins that are found in our food, water, vaccines or personal care products then the body can become overwhelmed causing toxic overload leading to neurological damage which creates the symptoms that lead to an autism diagnosis. It can also contribute to SPD, ADD, ADHD, developmental delays, autoimmune diseases, cancer, allergies and so many other conditions.
James’s genetic testing shows that he has several of these SNPs which put him at greater risk of injury when exposed to toxins. However, it’s not just genetics as about half of the population has many of these SNPs, specifically MTHFR. It is epigenetics, or ones exposure to toxins, that ultimately causes the injury, an injury that could have been avoided if the exposure never happened.
Parents have known this for years. Once again traditional medicine continues to be a decade or more behind.
Here is the study for anyone interested: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/06/180619122434.htm
