Understanding GcMAF from the Mind of Autism

I need to hear as much from inside the mind of autism as I can.  I need to know what they feel, think, experience and how they process.  I helps me as a physician/researcher to bring them more of what THEY desire.  Scott has been my patient since 2005 – he is now 22 and in college. He didn’t speak until after age 31/2 when he started on Sporanox ® a systemic antifungal medication.

Like many children with autism he had bowel disease and needed Pentasa® a medication designed for reducing serious gut inflammation.

He also had seizure-like activity and took Depakote® a medication which is commonly used in pediatric neurology circles despite its damaging effects on mitochondrial activity.

He struggled with prosody, that quality of speech where words flow effortlessly and meter, loudness and subtlety are natural expressions of mood and intent. He had no friends and really no desire for friends.

That was 7 years ago.  Now enter GcMAF – the latest addition to his parent’s  efforts at a FULL recovery. But this is from him directly – not his parents, and that makes it ever so much more valuable.

Dear Dr. Bradstreet,

I just wanted to let you know what improvements I have seen since taking the GCMAF:

  • Hear more of conversations so asking more on topic questions and understanding the answers better
  • Better comprehension all around
  • More fluid speech
  • Speech is slower and more enunciated. Much more understandable.
  • Less cracking joints on purpose
  • Used to feel urge to shake whole body, not anymore
  • Stopped biting nails
  • Less dizziness
  • Facial and verbal emotional expressions are falling within normal ranges, esp. laughter
  • Developing interest in new things
  • Enjoying new foods
  • It seems like the brain’s pathways are finally talking to each other. Visual and auditory are being processed together to form the whole.

In addition, I require a refill on the GCMAF.

Hope all is well where you are at.

    This is awesome! Thanks for sharing!
    I hope my son will make a lot of progress, after 15 shots I can see much better eye contact and better comprehension, but he has a severe case so that it will take longer to see more improvement.

    Scott, this is great to hear from you, instead of a parent. How is our metabolism? Are you finding that you can eat more as well as variety? I am amazed at my daughters changes in this area.
    I get from your comments that you feel a lot less anxious. How can you explain that old “habits” are now nonexistent . . . Example, no longer bitting your nails. Can you give more detail on this process changing for you? I ask because I see my daughter making big changes, as you describe, but she cannot articulate as well has you do.
    Exciting times.

    Quite simply, you ROCK THE HOUSE. Keep up the hard work.

    Dear Dr. Bradstreet,

    there is a growing number of children with ASD assuming GcMAF here in Italy, but it is clear that many of them experience side effects with no clear explanation.
    Is there any evidence of IRIS-like reaction in children with autism in your experience?
    Do you know why and when we should expect adverse reactions? Are those reactions dose-linked or time dependent?
