With the Yasko protocol, you have to get a whole long list of supplements, many of them obscure, and then you have to somehow figure out which ones are helpful. The whole point is to provide support for processes that go on in the mitochondria, or energy factories, in every cell of the body. Something has caused those processes to go awry, probably exposure to too many toxins, more than the individual’s body can get rid of naturally. (We live in a sea of toxins. If you think the government is protecting us from chemicals, you are wrong.)
There’s an MD who’s successfully treating not autism but multiple sclerosis in herself by eating the right foods. So, how is that relevant? Here’s how: through her diet she is supporting the mitochondrial processes, same thing Yasko’s protocol does.
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but alongside the autism epidemic there seems to be a marked increase in a variety of other conditions: allergies, athsma, multiple sclerosis, Parkinsons, ALS, and so on. It’s very evident to someone who has lived 60 years, as I have. The world used to be different. What if supporting the mitochondrial processes though food or supplements worked to help people fight all these diseases of the immune system and neurological system?
So, what does that have to do with you, my readers? Well, if you are wishing the Yasko protocol was easier and cheaper to implement, you could try the diet of Terry Wahls, MD. Through simply eating a prescribed set of mostly organic vegetables, she has delivered herself from crippling multiple sclerosis. Now she can walk, run, and ride a bicycle. Before, she couldn’t even sit up in her wheelchair. She’s eating at least three cups of certain organic fruits and vegetables at each meal, plus selected protein sources. Grains are minimized or eliminated. It’s a variation of the “paleo diet,” eaten by healthy hunter gatherers.
