Kristin: I would like to introduce Dr. Rafael Kalman. He is the author of The Microbiome Diet: Matrix Healing and Gut Reactions. We’re going to be talking about Hypothyroidism (NTIS) and low thyroid hormone in the central nervous system and children with Autism.

Three forms of low thyroid function commonly found in children but routine blood tests are missing. Thank you for joining us today I’m so happy to be talking about this

Dr. Raphael Kellman: Well, thank you so much for having me.

Kristin: I know that autism is you know definitely increasing a lot right now in autism. Is autism one disease or are there different subtypes or things that lead that create the state that we’re actually calling autism today?

Dr. Raphael Kellman: Well, that’s a good question, and that’s actually a point that I frequently make that there really many different causes of autism, many different pathways that lead to this diagnosis, is a condition we call autism. But there’s two points that I think we need to be very clear about.

One is that there isn’t one cause, there’s usually a combination of multiple causes. I look at it like a web of causes that coalesce then lead to this final diagnosis that we call autism. But there are many webs of causes that can take a child down that unfortunate path. But, it’s important to distinguish these different causes. Because they could be very different one from the other. There’s one child may develop the this constellation of symptoms that and problems that we call autism because of XY and Z. And another child may develop something quite similar also diagnosed and called autism this constellation of symptoms. But it could be very different, the sets of causes could be very very different, or the web of causes could be very different one from the other one. And there could be a third child who had totally different issues, but it also led to this constellation of symptoms and problems that we call autism.

So, it’s very important to distinguish the different pathways that can lead to autism. Because they need to be approached differently and it makes the treatment protocols that much easier to offer and to accomplish the goals…
