Autism Spectrum Disorders
Medical Treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders – ASD
As well as other Behavioral, Learning, and Developmental Disorders such as ADD/ADHD, Tics, Tourette’s, and Asperger’s
We believe that:
Assessing and Correcting the competence of elimination systems
+ Neuro-Endocrine Modulation
Nutritional interventions including Methyl B12, Fatty Acid and Amino Acid Manipulation (based on metabolic analysis)
Heavy Metal Detoxification (non-invasive Chelation techniques)
Auditory Enhancement Training
= Improved Behavior and Learning for ASD Patients
Dr. Kotsanis’s experience with and knowledge of autism rose from clinical experience. In 1995, Dr. Kotsanis’s interest in ASD advocacy prompted him to become one of the founding members of Defeat Autism Now! (DAN!). In fact, the Defeat Autism Now! (DAN!) Protocol evolved out of a study that Dr. Kotsanis did in 1992.
Our practice has been treating autistic children since 1992. Dr. Kotsanis, a board Certified Otolaryngologist and Allergist, understands well these communication disorders that fall within his domain of Ear, Nose & Throat.
Autism, ADD and ADHD are not a single diagnosis – but rather a spectrum of problems.
Learning spectrum disorders span a vast array of behaviors and symptoms. Although it is now known that autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are accompanied by digestive, immune, hormonal, neurological and other co-morbidities, there is no single biological marker that definitively distinguishes any of these conditions as a distinct diagnosis. These diagnostic categories have traditionally been defined by behaviors, and as such, diagnosed through a process that identifies these behaviors and their degree. ASD conditions have increased in epidemic proportions in the past twenty years. With increasing pollution and the degradation of dietary habits internationally, we have seen an increase in the incidence of all developmental disorders. If one includes learning disabilities of all kinds in the estimate, we believe the incidence may be as high as one in three children in some countries. Some integrative German physicians predict that most children born after 2013 will be on the spectrum.
