Autism Spectrum Disorder

ASD or Autism Spectrum Disorder is a developmental disability caused by dissimilarities in the brain.

Autism causes them to have a unique or different way of learning, moving and paying attention that makes life immensely challenging.

Socializing, replying back, maintaining eye contact and interacting can be difficult with people who have Autism.

Children with Autism Spectrum disorder might not respond to their name being called by 9 months of age, they also do not show the proper facial expressions in social situations like being happy, sad, angry, or surprised.

Because of Autism, they won’t be able to play and interact with other children their age in a normal way, and even have a hard time recognizing their parents by 12 months of age.

At 15 months of age, a child with autism will not show interest in showing their parents and siblings object that they like and they have a harder time noticing when others are hurt or upset by 24 months.

At 48 months, parents might notice that their child will not pretend to be something else like a doctor or a superhero and they will not sing, dance, or act by 60 months of age.

Being the parent of a child with autism is a highly difficult task and a challenge. Researchers found that mothers of children with autism had higher levels of parenting-related stress (Estes, Munson, Dawson, Koehler, Zhou & Abbott, 2009)

The interests of people with Autism and their behavior will seem odd and unusual to those who do not know them. They might perform certain gestures like counting before entering a door that would seem absurd to others. They might repeat words or phrases over and over, and play with the same toy each time. Some who have autism might be obsessed with one particular topic like whales, or cheese.

People with autism need to have a structure in their life, they easily get upset by minor changes and they need to follow a certain routine daily even spinning themselves in circles on a daily basis. ASD patients tend to do best when they have a highly-structured schedule or routine.

Some who have Autism Spectrum disorder will also have delayed movement skills, and learning skills and might be hyperactive and impulsive. And display a lack of fear, or might display more fear than usual. In severe cases, it can cause an ASD patient to suffer from epilepsy or seizure disorder.

It is important to note that Autism signs and symptoms will vary from one person to another. Some might have some of the stated symptoms above, while some might only have 2 or 3 recurring behavior.

Communication with people who have Autism is difficult if you will only rely on talking. Parents who want to communicate with their children can use touch to communicate and bond. Communicating can be done by the tone of your voice, and the way you look at the person with ASD. Body language is powerful, it just needs to be learned in order to be able to create a connection.

Stem Cell Therapy & Autism

Stem cell therapy is being considered by researchers as a potential cure for various diseases including Autism, including other diseases that do not have any surgical treatments available.

It is to be noted that in Autism several areas of the brain are damaged and do not function as they should. One of the goals of stem cell therapy researchers is to find a way to reverse the damage by replacing destroyed cells with a healthy supply of cells.

Medical researchers believe that it might restore the lost functions of the brain and improve the total quality of life for ASD patients. It is with the hope that stem cell therapy would one day make patients with Autism independent so they can blend better into society.

How can stem cells help ASD patients?

A fresh batch of stem cells ability to repair, regenerate and replace damaged cells in the brain. It can release growth factors that regulate the immune imbalance in autism that can potentially lead to healing and regenerative effect on damaged tissue.

It is important to note that the effects of stem cell therapy will vary among Autism patients. Careful study and series of tests need to be conducted first before an ASD patient can be given the chance to use stem cell therapy as a form of treatment. There are some autism patients who have shown clinical improvements in clinical trials, which led to lesser aggressive behavior, improved eye contact, and longer attention span. But further research is required to fully understand the impact and long-term impact of stem cell therapy on Autism Spectrum Disorder.

New Breed of Homo Sapiens

There is great promise in stem cell therapy when it comes to various illnesses or diseases. But before this can be done, stem cell therapy needs to be put into the mainstream.

Regenerative medicine is expected to be the next big thing in health care.

Stem Cell advocates like singer-actress and award-winning author Lourdes Duque Baron hopes to raise awareness as to the immense life-changing benefits of Stem Cell therapy through her upcoming book NEW BREED OF HOMO SAPIENS.

Stem cell therapy doesn’t have to be complicated. It has to be shared in a powerful and meaningful way.

Stem Cell therapy is the reason for the phenomenal improvements that allow stem cell advocates Lourdes Duque Baron and Michael York to continue living with amazing energy and boosted immune systems.

Receivers of billions of stem cells both attest to the truth of this rejuvenating and immensely powerful treatment.

Michael York a highly respected A-list actor became an advocate for stem cells after receiving treatment for his Amyloidosis and Multiple Myeloma.

While 75-year-old Lourdes Duque Baron experienced the healing of her Osteoporosis by way of stem cell therapy.
