2006 (Mar): 9 (1): 6-10 Aguilar carried out a series of chiropractic adjustments on 26 autistic children over a 9-month period. Twelve were found to have a left atlas laterality and 14 had a right atlas laterality. Outcomes from the study were varied but included normalization of deep tendon reflexes and dermatomal subjective sensation, increased cervical range of motion and reduction of other health problems. Many of the children were taken off Ritalin, bladder and bowel control improved, some children started to speak and eye contact and attention span also improved in some children. Hyperactivity and aggressive behavior were reduced in other children and five children were able to attend mainstream classes at school for the first time. Behavioral data, recorded by the teachers and parents, showed significant improvements in most cases.
The Effect of Chiropractic Adjustments on the Behavior of Autistic Children: A Case Review
Journal of Chiropractic 1987 (Dec); 24 (12): 21-25, Sandefur, R.; Adams, E
Autism is a severe behavioral and neurological disorder involving or inappropriate use of language, bizarre behaviors and an insistence on sameness. A systematic series of chiropractic adjustments was administered to
six autistic children to see if behavioral or neurological remediations would occur concomitant to treatment. The subjects were recruited from a Kansas City area specialized facility. Data used for the study were collected by the
classroom teachers. Those behaviors that remained fairly constant prior to treatment were selected for analysis. Results were divided into observable effects and no observable effects. All of the observable effects that occurred
following intervention were in the desired direction. Behavioral improvements were observed in such diverse areas as picking up toys, use of sign language, reduction of self-abuse and appropriate use of language. It is hoped that this pilot study will generate further research into the effects of chiropractic adjustments on similar neurological disorders.
**Gutmann, a medical/manual medicine doctor studied 1,000 infants with birth trauma. His study revealed that birth trauma (long lever technique) often caused upper cervical vertebral subluxation. The study revealed that infants who were adjusted during the study showed improvement with the following disorders – colic, restlessness, fever of unknown origin, seizures, postural scoliosis, etc. Dr. Gutmann speculated that abnormal nerve function may lead to a lowered immune system in children and may be a contributor to common childhood sickness as seen in ear infections and tonsillitis.
70% of infants are breastfed at birth but only 36% will continue to be breastfed by 6 months and less than 18% at 12 months resulting in many children being formula fed. Formula fed infants have an increased likelihood of infections and are prone to developing allergies later in life. Over 6.7 billion gallons of milk are consumed each year. 40% of that or 3.1 billion gallons are consumed by children. Typically 20% of children are eating fast food more than three times a week and approximately $150 billion is spent on fast food each year. Studies are linking this to obesity, insulin resistance and type-2 diabetes as currently more than 9 million children are obese. A can of soda contains up to 55mg of caffeine and energy drinks may contain up to 350mg of caffeine. 13% of the average child’s daily calories come from soft drinks and 140 pounds of sugar are consumed per person per year.
Vaccine dosages out of control?
Children will be given 48 doses of 14 vaccines before the age of 6. In the past 25 years, the number of doses of vaccines given children under 6 has more than doubled and their ingredients include but are not limited to the following:
- Mercury & aluminum
- Hydrochloric acid
- Ethylene Glycol
- Amalgam, or dental fillings,contain 50% mercury, 30% silver and differing amounts of tin, zinc and copper.
Most foods on the grocer’s shelf contain:
- Nitrates and nitrites (including sodium nitrite)
- Sulfites (including metabisulfites)
- Sulfur dioxide
- Benzoic acid (aka sodium benzoate)
- BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene)
- BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole)
- Coal tar
- Propylene glycol
- MSG (monosodium glutamate)
- Refined or bleached flour (i.e. whitened using chloride oxide)
Over 20 million children ingest 8 to 15 pesticides each day.
The top ten pesticides used in the past ten years include:
- Petroleum oil
- Metam Sodium
- Methyl bromide
- Copper sulfate
- Mineral oil
- Copper hydroxide
*When tested, fruits and vegetables were found to have traces of several different pesticides:
Sweet bell peppers – 64
Lettuce – 57
Hot peppers – 51
Apples – 50
Peaches – 42
Cucumbers – 40
Strawberries – 38
Imported grapes – 37
Green beans – 35
Pears – 33
*When possible, always buy locally grown organic fruits and vegetables.
Genetically engineered foods are becoming more common:
18% of dairy cows are injected with rBGH and dairies often mix milk.
Roxarsone (chicken feed) contains arsenic and tests have found 466 ppb of arsenic in chicken liver.
Animals are often fed antibiotics, creating antibiotic resistant bacteria.
*Off-labeling of prescription drugs has become a major problem. 2/3 of drugs prescribed to children have not been tested for them and drugs are used off-label in nearly 80% of major children’s hospitals.
*Physicians are prescribing drugs based on a “best guess” as to the dosage, efficacy and even safety.
Almost 10 million children per year will be written a prescription. Off-labeling of prescription drugs has become a major problem.
The top ten drugs typically prescribed off-label include:
ü Alupent syrup

Before coming to Elevation Health, I was suffering from frequent migraine headaches, neck stiffness and tension, and seasonal allergies. I took several different OTC medications for headaches and allergies. I was taking these several times a week!
Through Elevation Health, I began the Core 4 system of vitamins and supplements and attended several informative workshops. I also received weekly adjustments and continue to do all of the above. Since beginning chiropractic care, I am no longer experiencing any headaches and my allergies are almost symptom free! I have never felt better physically and mentally! I am also drug free! I no longer need medication for anything!
This office has been crucial to my path to wellness. They are very knowledgeable and up to date on current chiropractic trends. I wouldn’t be where I am today without them! I feel amazing!

THE CRITICS WILL DO WHAT THEY CAN TO GET YOUR CHILD VACCINATED
It starts from the moment of birth with the vitamin K injection. It is a never-ending battle that you must win. They won’t give up. Neither should you. Be informed and just say NO to vaccines! Here’s why:
Congressional Investigation on the link between Autism and Vaccination
On April 6, 2000 Republican Dan Burton convened a congressional hearing regarding the increasing scientific evidence linking vaccination to the increasing dramatic rise in Autism in the US. Mary Megson, MD explained that autistic children have a total deficiency of Vitamin A as early on as 15 months of age. Her research shows it is directly related to the MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccine. Also in her research she found the Pertussis toxoid found in the DPT shot disrupted certain proteins needed for retinal formation. This finding accounts for the prevalence of night blindness and loss of 3 dimensional vision in autistic children.
• John O’Leary, Ph.D. in molecular biology found measles virus in the gut of 96% of autistic children compared to 6.6% of normal children. Dr. O’Leary reports that the virus did not come from natural sources it came from the MMR vaccine. He also stated finding the measles virus in 75% of children with Crohn’s Disease. V. Singh, MD studied over 400 cases of autism and found that these children experienced an autoimmune episode, in which their bodies were made to attack their own nervous system. He stated that 55% of the families stated that the autism appeared after the MMR vaccine and 33% stated autism appeared after the DPT vaccine was administered.
• Andrew Wakefield, MD noted an almost 100% incidence of Lymphoid Nodular Hyperplasia or swollen lumps throughout the intestinal system of autistic children. The condition typically follows soon after the MMR shot is administered. Dr. Wakefield explained that as the fragile, newborn intestine cannot function because of its swollen condition, undigested toxins from vaccines and drugs are allowed to get into the liver, which is also in a formative stage. Liver pathology is very common among autistics. Michael Goldberg,MD, a California pediatrician and researcher, explained how it was impossible to have an epidemic based solely on genetics. That’s the standard explanation the CDC and the NIH have been using to explain how autism has grown from 1 in 10,000 to up to 1 in 300 in just 22 years.

*Results- Testimony of Coleen Boyle, Ph.D. – Associate Director, Science and Public Health – CDC’s National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, April 2001: Thimerosal
Despite the fact that thimerosal preservative has been effective in lowering the risk that vaccines could be contaminated by bacteria leading to serious infection, the United States Public Health Service agencies, including NIH, FDA, HRSA, and CDC, working collaboratively with the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American
Academy of Family Physicians, took action in mid-1999 to begin removing thimerosal preservative from the vaccine supply. While the risk of harm from this source was only theoretical, the decision was made as a precautionary measure. The elimination of thimerosal preservative from vaccines was judged a feasible means of reducing an infant’s total exposure to mercury in a world where other environmental sources of exposure may be more difficult or impossible to eliminate. As a result of this action, all manufacturers of routinely recommended licensed
pediatric vaccines are now producing for the U.S. market only vaccines that are thimerosal-free or contain trace amounts of thimerosal. The vaccines are supplied in single-dose vials which eliminates the need for a preservative.
***Smoking gun: Dr. Colleen’s statement above regarding thimerisol (removal of thimerasol took place 6 months prior to hearing….” costs billions of dollars to take it out, for no reason? They knew that it was causing damage.
OTHER SOURCES of mercury other than vaccines
- Air and water pollution
- Amalgam dental fillings
- Mercurial Diuretics
- Electrical devices and relays
- Residues in foods (esp. grains)
- Fungicides, Insecticides, Pesticides
- Florescent light
- Fresh water fish esp bass, pike and trout
- Petroleum products
- Salt water fish esp. halibut, shrimp, snapper,
- swordfish, shark, tuna and shellfish
GI DISORDER Studies on Children with Autism vs. controls with neurotypical children reveal higher incidences of:
- Higher serum copper
- Zinc deficiency
- Magnesium deficiency
- Iron deficiency
- Higher copper/zinc ratios
- B12 deficiency
- Below normal glutamine
- Lower plasma sulphate
- Lower amino acids tyrosine, carnosine, lysine, & hydroxylysine
- Lower methionine levels
- Fatty acid deficiency
- Calcium deficiency
- Lower Vitamin B6
- Inadequate levels of Vitamin D,
- E and A
Immediate Recommendations for children with Autism
1. Caseine Free, Gluten Free, Soy Free and Refined Sugar Free Diet
3. Digestive Enzymes (Vital-Zymes by Klaire Labs)
4. Supplement with:
• Multi-vitamin with Minerals (no copper)
• B6 in the P5P+Magnesium form 50mg
• Vitamin C 100-1000 mg (until loose stools)
• Calcium 500-1000 mg
• DMG (Dimethylglycene) 125mg
5. The gut must be healed or in a state of considerable recovery before any chelation should be considered.
