Vitamin D and Austism









Vitamin D plays an important role in the immune system. Research has found that vitamin D reduces the risk of the cold and flu and upper-respiratory tract infections. Additionally, low vitamin D is linked to several autoimmune disorders  including   lupus, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and more.  Autism is now thought to be an  Autoimmune disease. Autistic children need to have much higher levels of Vitamin D than the rest of the population. The lower the Vitamin D level the worse the  severity of the autism.  Autistic  children with higher levels of  vitamin D showed  improvement in the following:  Temper outburst, Child appeared not to suffer as much, speech improved after a  number of months on Vitamin D and epileptic seizures improved.  In fact, adequate Vitamin D reduces Epilepsy Seizures by 40% in all epileptics.

There are 5 boys to every 1 girl with Autism.  Testosterone reduces the amount of Vitamin D metabolized and Oestrogen  increases the amount of Vitamin D metabolized.

Vitamin D also upregulates  Gluthathione.  Glutathione protects nerve cells and chelates heavy metals and removes them from the body.  Autistic children are also poor detoxifiers. In order to  synthesize  Vitamin D in the sun, your shadow needs to be shorter than you are for 10-20 minutes.  Sunbake for half the time that it takes for your skin to become pink.  Vitamin D requires Zinc and Magnesium to synthesize.
