ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome are four of the most common neurological disorders diagnosed among children. Experts are unable to agree on the cause of these seemingly new conditions with debate raging over the use of thimerosal in vaccines, increases in mercury consumption, pesticides in foods, genetic engineering of foods, food additives and preservatives. Is it any one of these substances children are now regularly exposed to or a combination of all of these environmental changes that have led to new childhood disorders?
One element all of these children seem to have in common is an abnormally high sensitivity to foods and inhalants. These children suffer from severe allergic reactions, asthma, skin conditions and digestive problems at a much higher rate than children without neurological disorders. Contact with specific substances can exacerbate behavioral abnormalities and research has show dietary restrictions to be effective in normalizing behavior among this population.
The BAX-3000 which works to reduce stress through neurological substance specific stress reduction may eventually prove to provide its greatest therapeutic benefit to children diagnosed with neurological disorders. The BAX 3000 does not diagnose or treat ADD, ADHD, Asperger’s or Autism. Their is however a correlation between stress reduction and an increase in a childs ability to focus or concentrate for longer periods of time, become more tollerant of stress inducing substances within their environment and alleviate a number of symptoms that are exacerbated by the bombardment of stressors on the nervous system. For children with these childhood disorders, calming the nervous system may be the first step toward normally daily function.
“The FDA has not approved any medical treatments for autism (only for related symptoms) simply because none have been found. Biofeedback, however, is not a medical treatment but an educational one, which works to condition the brain to regulate itself.”
