What If It's Not Autism?

A pediatric doctor and researcher offers a compelling presentation about his theory that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and autism are the same disease. He theorizes that CFS is an adult onset Neuro-Immune Disorder and that autism is what happens when it onsets in early childhood and that ADD and ADHD is what happens when it onsets in older children.

His research with neuroSPECT scans and other medical data make a provocative case. If you have an interest in autism, CFS, or ADD/ADHD, it's a very interesting video that is well worth checking out. It proposes a radical paradigm shift in thinking about these orders, their impact on society, and how to research and treat them. He does not advocate weird treatments like chelation -- on the contrary, he debunks such bogus treatments. He advocates old-fashioned pediatric treatment with conventional tools and evidence based medical testing.
