Autism, a neurodevelopmental disorder that now affects 1 in 150 children in the United States? Many studies suggest a strong genetic basis, however there is the possible biological and environmental origins. The most discussed investigation is the link between the immune and nervous systems. Considering the potential biologic mechanisms of the immune system in relation to autism, in both the blood factors and cells that are involved in a healthy immune response.
Autism developments are multifactorial including genetics, bottom line is that it is a change in the brain. Generally from trauma/ brain injury resulting further into inflammation markers.This stems from environmental chemical exposure, biochemical and metabolic disorders, nutritional imbalances, chronic infections and immune dysfunction and even heavy metal toxicity.
A properly functioning immune system will:
Recognize foreign organisms, efficiently and rapidly destroy foreign organisms.
Prevent a second infection with the same microbe.
Never attack itself
Things that can be adverse:
Immune deficiency/dysfunction: defective?ineffective response.
Hypersensitivity: Over-reaction to innocuous foreign material,allergic.
Autoimmunity: adverse self reaction.
Inflammation: Attack against invaders, resulting in tissue damage.
Helping bring forth information and solutions to strengthen autistics immune system where the immunoglobulin G, or IgG, levels are much lower than normal is a key component for proper signaling of cells to produce certain proteins or factors, and potentially rendering these children more susceptible to infections.There are many other useful interventions that support the underlying biochemical imbalances often seen in Autism.
