More positive feedback from parents using GcMAF
March 12, 2012 2 Comments
GcMAF which is actually also the vitamin D binding protein seems to have broad impacts on the biology of at least some children with ASD. The exact mechanism of action is unknown, although it is likely linked to activity of the Vitamin D receptor and its DNA regulatory actions. These may include macrophage activation, regulation of calcium channels with alterations of intracellular calcium levels. Whatever the specific mechanisms of this molecule – it appears to be remarkably helpful at very small concentration in the body. Dosing is tricky and requires experience to sort out the best strategies. I worked for over a year to find ways to improve this activity through homeopathic means and the combined program seems to be what many children need.
Here are some further parental observations.
From a mom: Dear Dr. Bradstreet, I wanted to let you know about the progress my child has made following your treatment advice with the GCMAF injections. We did 11 of the injections and have seen a number of major positive benefits. Sleeping through the night is now commonplace with only rare awakening. We have seen significant mood improvement, and behavioral concerns at school have almost entirely disappeared for an extended time period. Before the injections my child had infractions almost daily or every other day. Since the injections we have had only one issue in almost three months! Additionally, we have seen academic improvement as well. Papers coming home consistently have grades in the 90′s, 100′s, and even 100+. It seems as if there is much less effort required to study and retain information. Thank you for recommending this treatment to our family.
From a dad: Overall very good! Consistently excellent reports from school and home therapists. Parent observations: Continued improvement in potty training. He continues to be more aware, engaged and ‘present’. Receptive language and self control (in response to verbal requests) have been outstanding. During a recent trip to Halo Center in Austin – Mike demonstrated some amazing ‘open ended’ communication a tremendous step forward. His communication was amazingly coherent and thoughtful. We have been successful at getting him to communicate in similar fashion at home since returning. However, there is no change in book biting (his #1 vice). GcMAF has far exceeded our expectations. (My Note: this child was largely unresponsive to all other therapies including intravenous immunoglobulin and other complex gut interventions. However the parents stayed in the fight and found a path to significant improvements. Despite this we have not seen the oral-motor sensory problems diminish at this time, so our work is not done is helping this child).
