It’s official. Even the conservative US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states the latest stats show one in 50 US kids now has autism. With approximately 4 times as many boys diagnosed with autism, this brings the number of boys in the U.S. diagnosed with autism to about 1 in 15 and girls to about 1 in 200. It's time for us to put our foot down in suspected contributing factors and demand that steps be taken to reduce the risk. None of the research that points to contributing factors is being acted upon due to government being run for and by big business and powerful lobby groups. We basically need to clean up our environment, food supply, water supply, and stop over-immunizing our kids, and possibly look at the risk posed by exposure to radiation from cel phones and wireless technologies (which are linked now to various cancers). I urge you to write your representatives and the president voicing your concerns and demanding something be done immediately or even better, work towards forming and joining local groups to replace corrupt politicians (most of them) with people who run for office as a public service and refuse to take money from powerful lobby groups.
We are beginning to wonder if Dr. Oz is getting ideas from Autism Coach. Last year on his popular television show, he promoted Carnosine and this past week he promoted Red Palm Oil which has been flying off our shelves.
Dr. Oz cited studies indicating it has numerous health benefits, including: increasing blood flow to the brain, reducing risk of Alzheimer's and dementia, reducing effects of stroke by up to 50% by protecting your brain's nerve cells, helping to remove plaque from arteries reducing risk of heart attack, helping to maintain normal blood pressure, reducing risk of multiple forms of cancer through anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Additionally, research has shown that red palm oil promotes nutrient utilization, improves liver detoxification pathways and improves immune function. To view Dr. Oz's article, click here.
For the past couple of years, our family has been using Red Palm oil regularly as one of our primary cooking oils. It also makes a great oil to use for making delicious home-made buttery tasting popcorn. Add a dash of truffle oil - and it is even more amazing! More

MoreItalian Court Rules MMR Caused Autism
May 11, 2012. In what may be a ground-breaking decision, the Italian Court of Rimini has ruled that causation between an MMR vaccine and the resulting autism in a young child “has been established.
May 15, 2012. Although we dearly love our children on the autism spectrum, we as parents often wish we could have prevented our kids from having to go down this path. If you already have a child on the autism spectrum and are planning to add to your family, you have a 20-32% increased risk of having another child with an autism spectrum disorder. A developmental pediatrician has a comprehensive and wonderful article on what you can do in pregnancy to reduce the risk of having a child on the autism spectrum.
MoreNot All Supplements Are Created Alike
How will you know if a supplement works if you don't use one that is full strength and has the highest quality ingredients?
Unlike supplement catalogs focused purely on profit that sell everything under the sun and don't know if or care whether or not their products are beneficial, at Autism Coach, we won't sell a supplement if we wouldn't give it to our children or take it ourselves. We have personally used virtually all of the supplements we sell and every product has the potential to provide benefit.
You can also feel good about purchasing products from Autism Coach because you are supporting fellow members of the autism community and we turn around and support the autism community by providing useful information and high quality products.
In lesser quality supplements, fillers and "natural flavorings" can legally hide unnatural ingredients and allergens, including MSG, a excitotoxin. Raw materials themselves can be high in contaminants such as pesticides and heavy metals (this does not have to be disclosed on the label). Some supplements targeted at the autism community use propylene glycol (the equivalent of anti-freeze) in their liquid supplements to keep ingredients mixed up, something we would NEVER put into the bodies of autistic children who have an impaired ability to detoxify.

Many individuals within the autism spectrum have low cholesterol. It turns out that proprionic acid lowers cholesterol. It also is a by-product of Clostridium Difficile, a pathogenic organism commonly found at excessive levels individuals within the autism spectrum. Proprionic acid has also been shown by researchers to trigger symptoms of autism when injected into the brains of rats and is theorized to be a cause of autistic symptoms in humans. Fortunately, symptoms of autism can be greatly reduced with treatment. More

Autism Treatment Therapy Approaches using AutismCoach ProductsHere at Autism Coach, we offer information and products that can be used by parents, individuals within the autism spectrum, and professionals to create effective autism treatment therapy intervention protocols. We offer a full range of products, including the best autism supplements, dietary products, computer software and books to be used for developing and implementing an autism therapy treatment intervention protocol.
Autism Coach provides autism research information and health related articles to help you make informed choices as to what approaches may be of greatest benefit. Every child, teenager, and adult on the autism spectrum is a unique individual and there is no one-size fits all approach although statistically some therapies provide more benefit than others.
Up to 40% of individuals within the autism spectrum are currently estimated to eventually lose their autism spectrum labels. Even if you or your family members do not lose all symptoms of autism, anyone can improve their quality of life and level of functioning regardless of age or diagnosis.
Statistically the most effective treatment protocols that lead to individuals losing their autism spectrum labels connect individuals neurologically using a multi-disciplinary approach. Effective multi-discliplinary approaches often include supplements, a special diet (such as a combination/modified version of one of the following diets: Gluten Free Casein Free, Specific Carbohydrate, Feingold, Body Ecology), Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA ), and integrative therapies (sensory, auditory and visual integration).
At Autism Coach, we believe that creating an effective autism spectrum therapy treatment intervention protocol tailored to an individual’s need, strengths, unique personality, and interests is the best way to to help those in the autism spectrum reach their full potential.
Founded in 2000, Autism Coach is one of the oldest and most trusted comprehensive autism information and product catalogs online.
Liquid Carnosine Plus, Behavior Balance & Soy Free Rice Vitamin E and Benfotiamine! We are also pleased to reintroduce soy-freeRice Vitamin E that provides neurological support and a new product, Benfotiamine, a highly absorbable form of Vitamin B1, that has anti-glycation properties, providing cellular support throughout the body (including the pancreas and brain) when cells are exposed to excessive levels of glucose. Excessive levels of glucose damage cells by bonding to proteins in a process called glycation that can contribute to conditions such as diabetes, mitrochondrial dysfunction, Alzheimers and autism. April 11, 2012. After more than a year's absence, we are pleased to make available Rice Vitamin E, a unique oil extract of rice bran, rich both in tocotrienols and tocopherols. Tocotrienols are in the class of Vitamin E compounds along with tocopherols. Research has shown that in cell membranes alpha tocotrienol is 40–60 times more protective against free radicals than alpha tocopherol. In addition, tocotrienols may reduce arterial plaques and enhance blood flow; are potent inhibitors of platelet aggregation and thromboxane; protect serum lipids from oxidation, including LDL and HDL; reduce carotid stenosis (narrowing) and may help prevent stroke; serve as a trap to harmful nitrogenous radicals; are anti-proliferative and anti-cancer agents; and provide powerful oxidative defense for the skin. More April 7, 2012. We are pleased to be able to offer Benfotiamine, a highly absorbable form of Vitamin B1. Benfotiamine helps the body convert blood sugar (glucose) into energy. It increases blood levels of thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP), the primary thiamin co-enzyme and is also used to help maintain healthy cells in the presence of blood glucose. It acts as a neuroprotectant, preventing Glycation - a process where excess glucose in the blood damages cells in the brain and elsewhere by randomly bonding to proteins. Glycated cells and tissues to do not function optimally and often have impaired mitochondrial energy metabolism, an issue with some individuals within the autism spectrum. Tissues damaged by Glycation have been found in individuals diagnosed with diabetes and in the brains of individuals diagnosed with autism and dementia. The incidence of Alzheimers is higher in individuals diagnosed with diabetes. Phenolic compounds in food require B1 to metabolize them and can also deplete levels of B1. Individuals with impaired ability to metabolize phenols may benefit from Benfotiamine. It has also long been used to support individuals with neuropathy. More
We have improved our Liquid Carnosine Plus to include a patented form of Zinc-Carnosine that has dozens of research studies published concerning its supporting digestion and the mucosal lining of the intestinal tract. To learn more about Zinc-Carnosine research, please click here.
Our Liquid Carnosine Plus has been flying off the shelves since Dr. Oz promoted the anti-aging, anti-Alzheimer's properties of Carnosine on his nationally syndicated health care television show February 15. We have known about and provided information about the benefits of Carnosine for years and are pleased to see it has reached national attention.
In a double-blind study, significant improvements in language and socialization were observed in 90 percent of children within the autism spectrum using L-Carnosine, as opposed to children taking a placebo.L-Carnosine is believed to increase activity in the frontal areas of the brain and promote the production of GABA, one of the brain's primary calming neurotransmitters. GABA is believed to be deficient in children within the autism spectrum. The quality of a supplement can make a huge difference in effectiveness and L-Canosine Plus contains only the purest, highest quality ingredients in an all-natural, pleasant-tasting, lemonade- flavored base that is free from common allergens and is compatible with most special diets. More Autism Coach's Behavior Balance provides a blend of B vitamins, methyl donors and zinc that are frequently deificient in individuals within the autism spectrum. Originally formulated by autism nutrtional intervention pioneer, Dr. Bernard Rimland, it contains N-Dimethylglycine (DMG) with Betaine, B12, B6, and folic acid in a great tasting natural black cherry flavored liquid. These nutrients work together to support the balancing of behavior patterns and social skills, stress coping mechanisms, and immune system function. More February 2, 2013. We are pleased to introduce our most comprehensive and innovative enzyme blend. Full Spectrum Enzymes break down gluten and casein proteins that are problematic for the majority of individuals within the autism spectrum, break down starches and sugars more completely than most other enzyme blends,
break down fats, break down the bacterial walls of intestinal pathogens such as yeast (Candida) and bacteria (killing them), and break down biofilms (the protective layer of slime these pathogens form to cover themselves when they colonize the intestinal tract). This enzyme blend brilliantly kills pathogens as it diminishes their food supply. It also supports the healing of the intestinal lining and improves its ability to absorb nutrients.
MagTein - An Exciting New Supplement for Neurological Suppport February 18, 2012. Cogni-Zone contains Magnesium Threonate, a patented form of magnesium developed by researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) that passes through the blood-brain barrier and concentrates more efficiently in the brain and restores the degraded neuronal connections observed in Alzheimer's disease and other forms of memory loss. In experimental models, Magnesium Threonate induced improvements of 18% for short-term memory and 100% for long-term memory. Alpha GPC
We are pleased to offer two products containing MagTein - Cogni-Zone and MagMind. The dosages are the same - the only difference is the fillers and capsule ingredients.

Alpha GPC is a phospholipid metabolite found concentrated in neuronal membranes. Alpha GPC supports brain function and learning processes by directly increasing the synthesis and secretion of acetylcholine. Alpha GPC protects neurons and improves signal transmission by serving as a precursor to membrane phospholipids. Strengthening the membranes encasing the neurons increases the speed and accuracy with which information is transmitted, reducing timing delays and reducing distortion of signals. Sensory distortion and timing delays are believed to be the amongst the root causes of autism. The better neurologically connected, the fewer the symptoms. More BioActive Vitamin Minerals - Now Available in Capsules or as Powder! Dec 12, 2012. We pleased to add a high quality form of Alpha Keto-Glutaric Acid (AKG) to the Autism Coach brand of supplements. High levels of ammonia in the brain can contribute to brain fog and spaciness. AKG can reduce levels of ammonia formed in the brain, muscles and kidneys, as well as help balance the body’s nitrogen chemistry and prevent nitrogen excess in body tissues and fluids. More

The Only Liquid Non-Corn Derived Vitamin C
$10 savings over price of products if purchased separately
Glutathione works best detoxifying and removing heavy metals when paired with Vitamin C and so we are providing a special offer of two exceptional products. Both are highly absorbable - the Glutathione is enclosed in liposome membrane to enable it to be absorbed through the intestinal lining and the Liquid Corn Free Vitamin C is rendered highly abosrbable through the intestinal lining due due to its patented glycerine base. More
Glutathione is one of the most potentent natural detoxifiers, helping to remove heavy metals and other toxins from the body.In a study by Dr. Jill St. James at Arkansas Children's Hospital, children within the autism spectrum were found to have significantly lower levels of glutathione than neurotypical children who also participated in the study. Until now, glutathione was not absorbed well orally and had been administered intravenously or absorbed through the skin with trans-dermal cream. However, our new form of glutathione provides quick and efficient absorption by enclosing the glutathione molecule within a tiny membrane called a liposome. Liposomes have been shown to have a 90% absorption rate. Our brand of glutathione has been used in Parkinson's and Athereosclerosis research with promising findings, including a study on Parkinson's indicating a 100 fold increase in glutathione in neurons. More We are pleased to exclusively introduce the first Liquid Vitamin C that is not only corn-free but is not derived from corn ( a technicality that many supplement manufacturers fail to disclose). Derived from cassava (a tropical root vegetable) Our Liquid Corn-Free Vitamin C is pleasant, easy to take, and may be taken straight or mixed into cool or room temperature drinks. 99% of Vitamin C in the U.S. is derived from genetically modified BT corn (which has a pesticide engineered into every molecule).

We are please to offer the full product line of Houston Enzymes, the most effective enzymes for individuals on the autism spectrum, in our opinion. These enzymes come in capsules that can be swallowed, or the contents of the capsules opened and mixed into foods, or there are good tasting chewable forms of these enzymes. The majority of individuals within the autism spectrum maldigest their food and undigested gluten and casein proteins can actually form opiates that bind to sites in the brain, interfering with neurological development. The Houston Peptizyde enzymes help break apart these proteins so they do not form opiates.
Trienza Chewables provide a tasty alternative to the popular Trienza which combines three enzymes in a single supplement: Peptizyde, Zyme Prime, and No-Fenol. Zyme Prime primarily digests carbohydrates, and fats, and No-Fenol helps to digest phenloic compounds which can also be problematic for individuals within the autism spectrum. More

Super Folate, our form of folic acid, 5 MTHF (mehtyltetrahydrofolate), is the most bioavailable, containing methyl donors that help it to be used in the body's metabolic processes. Most individuals within the autism spectrum are deficient in B-12. Folic acid is a precusor to B-12 and can also be used in many of the metabolic processes required by B-12. If you or your child are deficient in B-12, Super Folate will help you derive maximum benefit from your B-12 supplementation or injections. More
Neurological Optimization and Protection
Theanine is a unique amino acid found almost exclusively in green tea that exerts beneficial effects on brain metabolism. Theanine induces relaxation without causing drowsiness, as measured by increased generation of alpha-waves. Theanine may improve learning ability by affecting dopamine and serotonin neurotransmitters in the brain. Also, Theanine exerts protective effects on the brain by antagonizing glutamate toxicity. More
Vinpocetine is a supplement that has long been used in Europe and Japan for neurological support but is not as widely known within the U.S. There are many studies supporting the neuro-protective properties of Vinpocetine and the observation of improved cognitive functioning. My family has used this for several years - this was one of the supplements that seems to work especially well for our son - where we could see a noticeable improvement in alertness. We have found it to provide optimal neurological support, when taken with natural licorice, such as our new Licorice Syrup. Studies have shown that licorice has many beneficial properties, supporting the production of hormones in the intestinal tract and brain, including secretin. It also has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. More
Phophosphatidyl Serine is a supplement that helps to regenerate damaged nerve cells, reverse defects in nerve cell message transmission, and establish new receptor sites in the brain. Phosphatidyl Serine benefits memory, learning, concentration, mood, alertness, sociability, and improved reaction time.More
The majority of individuals within the autism spectrum have an impaired ability to remove toxins from the body and tend to accumulate high levels of pesticides and heavy metals. In today's world with over 20,000 man-made chemicals in our environment interacting with each other with unknown consequences, detoxification should be a part of everyone's regular health regimen.
Our Liquid Liposome-Enclosed Glutathione provides a 90% absorption rate of this powerful anti-oxidant. Raising levels of glutathione supports methylation which is one of the primary metabolic pathways used by the body to detoxify and safely remove toxins from the body so they are not reabsorbed.
We are also offering Super Folate to support methylation and stimualte the production of dopamine.
Herbal Detoxifier includes alpha lipoic acid, which binds to heavy metals, and milk thistle, which helps to ensure these metals are removed from the body. Supporting the liver generally helps people to sleep better at night because that is when the liver is most active in detoxifying.
Cal-Mag Butyrate reduces levels of ammonia in the brain. It includes butyric acid, a precursor to the brain's primary calming neurotransmitter, GABA, which is frequently deficient in autistic children, who often have excessive levels of ammonia in the brain.
Our Liquid Minerals provide high quality forms of beneficial minerals in an easy to take form and also can be used as a taste test kit to determine if there are mineral deficiencies.A popular detoxification therapy is chelation in which natural supplements or chemicals bind to metals in the body. Unfortunately, beneficial minerals are also removed, including those required for normal heart function, and so it is vitally important to monitor and adminster beneficial minerals during chelation.

The Krebs energy cycle tends to be impaired in individuals within the autism spectrum. Both Alpha GPC and Citicholine help to normalize functioning of the Krebs cycle and are neuro-protective. Both also work remarkably well for providing additional energy to alleviate driving fatigue. They can be used as a more economical and easy to carry energy shooter in a capsule.
Alpha GPC is a phospholipid metabolite found concentrated in neuronal membranes. Alpha GPC supports brain function and learning processes by directly increasing the synthesis and secretion of acetylcholine. Alpha GPC protects neurons and improves signal transmission by serving as a precursor to membrane phospholipids. Strengthening the membranes encasing the neurons increases the speed and accuracy with which information is transmitted, reducing timing delays and reducing distortion of signals. Sensory distortion and timing delays are believed to be the amongst the root causes of autism. The better neurologically connected, the fewer the symptoms. Citicholine has been extensively tested by scientists and shown to improve brain function in people of all ages. In a study conducted in 2007 at McClean Hospital in Belmont, Massachussetts, Dr. Perry Renshaw showed that Citicholine improved brain function in middle aged people. The researchers took a group of volunteers and put them in an MRI to measure the energy needed to make our brains work. Then they told the volunteers to take Citicoline every day. After six weeks the volunteers were put back into the MRI to see if there were any changes. "The unanticipated and somewhat remarkable result that we found was that the brain energy supply... is actually increased in critical brain regions by this supplement," said Renshaw. More
