The Autism Community – Part 3 of an Interview with Lisa Ackerman  

When it comes to autism treatment, acceptance is not a strategy. Neither is guilt. A sense of community, however, can be a major asset for families with autism. In the last installment of this series with Lisa Ackerman, founder of TACA (Talk About Curing Autism), Dr. Daniel Amen and Tana Amen talk with Lisa about what may be the biggest resource of all for those treating autism: other people. TACA provides an abundance of helpful resources for these families, such as putting them in touch with a local chapter for help in facing their special challenges.

Can Imaging Lead To Better Diagnoses for Autism?- Part 2 of an interview with Lisa Ackerman  

When you see a kid with autism, you’ve seen ONE kid with autism. Unfortunately, autism is not one thing, and you can’t treat every brain the same. Fortunately, there are ways to scan the brain to determine the type of autism your child has, so you can treat them using appropriate methods. In part two of a series with Lisa Ackerman, founder of TACA (Talk About Curing Autism), hosts Dr. Daniel Amen and Tana Amen discuss the role SPECT imaging plays in autism treatment.

013: Glyphosate, Gut Dysbiosis, and Chronic Disease with Dr. Stephanie Seneff  

I fundamentally believe that when people are well they can change the world, and I work everyday to help reduce the risk of chronic disease in my patients. So when I heard today’s guest, Dr. Stephanie Seneff, speak, I knew that I had to have her on the podcast. Dr. Seneff presented me with an inconvenient truth; that the food I was eating and feeding to my family was not only killing us, but the people who were coming to see me for help. Our interview today is slightly more technical than you might be used to, but if you eat food, this interview is crucial to your survival.

 

Key Takeaways:

[:54] Please join our Facebook community, Legacy, a group of bad-ass women collectively committed to leaving the world better than we found it.

[4:10] Glyphosate is the most important toxic chemical in our environment and we must ban glyphosate worldwide.

[5:51] Glyphosate is the active ingredient in the herbicide RoundUp.

[6:19] Some crops have been genetically modified to be resistant to RoundUp.

[6:58] How is so much glyphosate getting into our food?

[8:12] Even organic foods will contain some glyphosate.

[9:11] Why would organic lentils contain high levels of glyphosate?

[10:18] Monsanto’s own studies have shown how glyphosate accumulates in body tissue.

[12:45] Glyphosate is getting into proteins by mistake.

[14:02] In North America we do not respect the Precautionary Principle.

[14:51] Is there a link between glyphosate and autism?

[17:20] Glyphosate hit the market in 1975 but its use wasn’t widespread until the late 1990s.

[31:03] It is very difficult to reduce glyphosate exposure without committing to buy organic.

[32:43] Sri Lanka banned glyphosate after it became obvious that it had killed many young agricultural workers. It will be a miracle if the U.S.A. ever bans it.

[34:28] We can test for glyphosate in our bodies with urine samples.

[35:16] Can we detox glyphosate out of our tissues?

[37:51] How can we take action to remedy the problems we have created with glyphosate use?

Maternal Instinct: Pamela Feliciano & Katharine Gammon  

In this week's episode, we present two stories of science and motherhood, just in time for Mother's Day. Part 1: Developmental biologist Pam Feliciano tries to understand her autistic son.
