Autism Spectrum Disorder affects 1 in 68 children in the United States.
Although autism is known to primarily impact the brain, recent studies, have found that gastrointestinal (GI) issues seem to occur more often in individuals with ASD than in the rest of the population.
One study found that children in the spectrum are up to eight times more prone to report GI symptoms such as inflammation, diarrhea, and constipation.
Today, we will analyze the implications of GI issues in autistic children, as well as how SCT can help heal the autistic gut and reducing overall inflammation.
Autism Gut and Inflammation
Studies showed that children with ASD who experience GI problems are more likely to have more severe symptoms of ASD. In addition, the studies found that while treating GI symptomatology can be translated into a significant reduction of ASD behaviors.
The gut and behavior seem tied together in some way. According to different research, gut issues in autism can be caused by two factors: inappropriate immune functioning that causes inflammation of the track, and second because of different gut bacterias.
These implications can result in inflammation and an increase in autistic behaviors.
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem Cell Therapy is a novel method of modulating the immune system, leveraging the body’s repair mechanism and direct it to repair, heal and potentially regenerate different tissues. It also allows physicians to expand the number of cells normally produced by a healthy individual and concentrate those cells to address the specific areas of concern.
Stem cells can address pretty much any affected tissue in the human body and regenerate it by triggering a healing cascade of that particular tissue. This is a process that happens every day in our bodies and which allows us to stay on top of the normal wear and tear that our organs and tissues are exposed to.
How Does Stem Cell Therapy Can Heal Inflammation?
Research indicates that autistic children have considerably fewer gut bacteria than neurotypical children, this is known as dysbiosis. The intestinal bacterial imbalance contributes to developing a leaky gut, and to triggering general chronic inflammation that can eventually reach the brain. Thus increasing autistic behaviors, affecting the child’s immune system, and directly impacting neurodevelopment.
When it comes to healing the GI, stem cell activity is able to act at specific sites in the intestinal wall where permeability is an issue and help regenerate the gaps between cells.
This repair mechanism prevents toxins from leaking into the bloodstream, and ultimately into the brain. This can be translated into a decrease in inflammation, pain ease, an overall improvement in cognitive functionality.
After only a couple of weeks after the therapy, most parents report a significant improvement in their children’s mood, social and learning skills, and overall health. Don’t hesitate and give your child the opportunity to unleash his/her potential. You can find out all of the benefits of stem cell therapy for autistic conditions
At WSCC, we offer support for autistic families and their children with stem cell therapy treatments that can transform autistic conditions by healing the gut, decreasing inflammation, and improving brain function. We also created an on Facebook that is destined to offer support and companionship for ASD parents and their families on their journey.
Remember, you are not alone!
