“Little Evidence of Health Benefits from Organic Food”, study finds; Sept. 3, 2012.

Organophosphate pesticides (OPs)

  • Can interfere with nervous system function in children;

    • Low capacity to detoxify.

    • Association between prenatal exposure and ADHD, neurodevelopmental deficits; reduced IQ, perceptual reasoning and memory.

Eskenazi, 2010. Chamacos study (funded by EPA)

Mothers’ exposures to OPs during pregnancy:

  • Shorter duration of pregnancy.

  • Poorer neonatal reflexes.

  • Lower IQ/decreased cognitive function.

  • Increased risk of attention problems.

  • PON1 gene and enzyme – helps body detoxify OPs: certain genetic polymorphisms were associated with increased risk of pervasive developmental disorder – category of developmental disorders that include autism spectrum disorders.

3 weeks later child health unclear?

C.S. reports:

Mood better

Very rare violent outbursts

Less ‘puffy’ appearing

Weight loss

“Because I am better, everyone in my family is happier which makes me happy”.


Other factors leading to leaky gut
Other factors leading to leaky gut child health unclear?

Gut dysbiosis

Decreased bile flow

Nutritional deficiencies (A, Magnesium, Zinc, Vit D, Calcium)

Leaky brain?

May be link with obesity and neuroinflammation of CNS


Plan with c s
Plan with C.S. child health unclear?

Organic, NonGMO, gluten/dairy-free diet

Homeopathic detox (kidney, liver and lymphatics)

Homeopathic gut healing; drainage of the extracellular matrix, cell regeneration and immunomodulating remedies

DMSA heavy metal challenge

Neurotransmitter function testing

Homeopathic constitutional remedy
