Autism Electromagnetic and Diet Therapy

Hussein Abu Elasal, Ahmad A. Gharaibeh


Autism is a neurological disorder of childhood with poorly understood, in terms of its etiology and pathology. Oxidative stress may play a role in the disease pathophysiology. Oxidative stress results in an excess of free radicals which leading to organ dysfunction. Mitochondria are the main intracellular source of free radicals. In this experimental study, an innovative approach of using a DC electrical pulsating device with an antioxidants supplements in early treatments of disease is introduced. The current study included (20) autistic children as the intervention group and (20) non-autistic children as a control. The intervention group received an electromagnetic treatments and the antioxidants supplements for four months. Their autistic states were evaluated according to the Autism Treatment Evaluation Checklist (ATEC). Lactate (The mitochondrial dysfunction biomarker), Ceruloplasmin and Transferrin were tested for the presence of the oxidative stress. Pre-treatment values were compared with post- treatment values and with standard values. Results indicate that there is a significant decrease in lactate values after intervention (mean ± SD 2.6 ± 0.82 and 1.88 ± 0.61) pre- and post intervention. Assessment of the autism state by (ATEC) reported that 90% of the respondents showed a decrease in total ATEC scores after the treatment process by an average of 69.28%. The strong correlation of the oxidative stress biomarkers  associated with autism severity. Suggesting a good ground to use electromagnetic and antioxidant supplements treatment for autistic children.

Keywords: electromagnetic therapy, autism, oxidative stress, mitochondrial dysfunction, food supplements.
