      Depression, Mental Health and Crisis Support

      <b>Depression, Mental Health and Crisis Support   </b>Depression and other mental health difficulties are common amongst people on the autistic spectrum and their carers.   People who are affected by general mental health difficulties are encouraged to receive and share information, support and advice with other forum members, though it is important to point out that this exchange of information is generally based on personal experience and opinions, and is not a substitute for professional medical help.   <b>There is a list of sources of mental health support here: <a href="http://www.asd-forum.org.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=18801" target="_blank">Mental Health Resources link</a></b>   People may experience a more serious crisis with their mental health and need urgent medical assistance and advice. However well intentioned, this is not an area of support that the forum can or should be attempting to offer and we would urge members who are feeling at risk of self-harm or suicide to contact either their own GP/health centre, or if out of hours contact NHS Direct on 0845 4647 or to call emergency services 999.   We want to reassure members that they have our full support in offering and seeking advice and information on general mental health issues. Members asking for information in order to help a person in their care are seeking to empower both themselves and those they represent, and we would naturally welcome any such dialogue on the forum.   <b>However, any posts which are deemed to contain inference of personal intent to self-harm and/or suicide will be removed from the forum and that person will be contacted via the pm system with advice on where to seek appropriate help.</b>   In addition to the post being removed, if a forum member is deemed to indicate an immediate risk to themselves, and are unable to be contacted via the pm system, the moderating team will take steps to ensure that person's safety. This may involve breaking previous confidentiality agreements and/or contacting the emergency services on that person's behalf.   Sometimes posts referring to self-harm do not indicate an immediate risk, but they may contain material which others find inappropriate or distressing. This type of post will also be removed from the public forum at the moderator's/administrator's discretion, considering the forum user base as a whole.   If any member receives a PM indicating an immediate risk and is not in a position (or does not want) to intervene, they should forward the PM to the moderating team, who will deal with the disclosure in accordance with the above guidelines.   We trust all members will appreciate the reasoning behind these guidelines, and our intention to urge any member struggling with suicidal feelings to seek and receive approproiate support from trained and experienced professional resources.   The forum guidelines have been updated to reflect the above.   regards, <b> The mod/admin team</b>

Rob Nijssen

 

The cause of autism? a unique research report by Rob Nijssen. The cause of autism? The worldwide scientific community has long researched the causes of autism and are still unable to come up with an effective answer or guidelines. As a father of a regressive autistic son I researched all possible avenues over many years in order to learn more about the possible causes of autism. The traditional medical community does its utmost to look for an answer and also to find treatment for this very complex disorder but I wanted to explore further.

 

Patterns and symptoms During my research it was surprising how focused scientists are on the initial autistic symptoms. I was not able to find any scientist that looked at the whole system. I was surprised about the initial approach and the apparent lack of a comprehensive ?helicopter? view. I was especially frustrated by the fact that they were unable to stabilize my son?s immune system with all its related problems. Ear infections, bad stools, diarrhea, sleeping disturbances, loss of eye contact, isolation, tantrums, dry skin, neurotransmitter disturbances, light sensibility, aggression, frustration, gluten intolerance, casein intolerance, infections, skin eruptions, lung infections, and so on. All above mentioned factors are very typical for regressive autistic children. A lot of them are cyclic, in other words they keep returning. These patterns are all related to a weakened immune system. My approach was to search out a way to stabilize the immune system. The immune system always weakens when it is being attacked by several disturbing factors: -Viruses -Bacteria -Parasites -Fungi -Toxic loads How to determine the suppressing factors? During my research I was frustrated that it was so difficult to find and determine which of the suppressing factors were bothering him and even worse, how to tackle them. It is impossible to locate and identify these through conventiona l analysis of blood, hair, faeces and urine. The lab results were very often false negative. If you have a helicobacter in your system and the stool tests do not indicate helicobacter bacteria the test will turn out negative although it can be present. So how can you possibly define what is bothering your child? Quantum physics During my research I came across Quantum physics. This is a totally different approach as opposed to conventional diagnostic systems. It is based on the principle that each molecule on the planet has a unique structure, and therefore has a unique frequency (vibratory resonance). This gave me hope; if you could measure frequencies of each molecule or cel than you also should be able to identify the unique frequency of viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi and toxic loads. If so it might also be possible to check the activity of the human being such as organ function, hormones, cell structure and so on. Identifying the patterns that are specifically related to autistic symptoms I acquired a test device with which I was able to measure frequencies and started testing it with readily available frequencies. I started to build up a database with frequencies related to viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi and toxic loads and also bodily functions, hormones and cell structures. At a certain stage I even discovered that I was able to check molecular cell activity in the human body related to organs. This was a major breakthrough!! If an organ is in hyper-function it indicates that there is not in balance and if another organ cell had a very low function this also indicates a imbalance. The human body has to be in balance and if everything is in harmony the immune system works well and you are healthy!!!! Through further research I was able to find patterns occurring in these imbalances related to autistic symptoms. The next crucial stage was to find out what caused these imbalances and then even more so, how to bring these back into balance. How to improve the immune system? How can we bring the immune system back up to a level in which it is possible to defeat the factors that are overloading the immune system? It is clear that factors such as viruses, bacteria, parasites (protozoa), fungi and toxic loads can seriously attack the immune system and once the immune system is weakened these factors can grow and the regression becomes a fact; - Cell structures weaken, - neuron-transmitter functions go down - brain functions and communication functions get worse - the digestive system gets worse - the intestinal permeability occurs - the hormonal system collapses; secretine, DHEA isn?t produced properly, - B12 production in the colon goes down - The enzymatic function of the pancreas collapses. If we want to able to bring the immune system back up to a self generating level it was crucial to stop the regression. Developing a treatment protocol in order to restore the immune system: From experience I learned that the following steps are necessary: 1) prevent the human body from taking in more negative factors; a) by using the right diet(no toxins, chemical substances etc.)Don?t give the weakened digestive system hard to digest products (gluten casein sugar artificial flavours saturated fats) B) stop nourishing the bacteria, viruses, parasites ,fungi (no food supplements) c) try to give as few possible stress factors (lifestyle) 2) remove the negative factors a) get rid of the viruses, bacteria , parasites and fungi B) get rid of the toxic loads in the system 3) repair the weakened body functions a) Strengthen the cell structures and cell functions B) reconnect neurotransmitters (slowly! And in a balanced way) c) improve brain functions and communication functions d) rebuild the digestive system I) restore the intestinal flora (probiotics) II) improve the pancreatic function (enzymes, hormones) III) improve the B 12 production in the colon IV) reactivate the Peyer?s patches (they are also known as aggregated lymphatic follicles). They are similar to the tonsils and are found throughout the body, especially in the mucous linings of the digestive and respiratory tracts and promote proper production of the white blood cells, which defeat the attackers of the human body. V) bring the adrenal gland back into balance (secretine and DHEA production) these are the ?feel good? hormones. 4) maintain and monitor the immune system The results so far: Momentarily I am able to detect 163 viruses, 93 parasites (protozoa), 93 fungi and 169 bacteria. THEN I DISCOVERED THAT ALL AUTISTICS HAVE TWO (AS YET POSSIBLY UNIDENTIFIED) MUTATED VIRUSES WHICH I WAS ABLE TO DETECT BY QUANTUM PHYSICS!!!! These two ?viruses? were present in all the urine samples of the autistic children I checked. The immune system can hardly cope with these two viruses. If one or more additional negative factors (such as influenza, whooping cough, measles, chickenpoxrubella, diphteria, bacteria, fungi, parasites, protozoa) ? also start to attack the immune system, the defence system collapses. This explains why so many (autistic) children develop normally and then at a certain stage turn into a deep regression. So now I think I have discovered the main cause of the regression, the next step is to find a way to support the immune system to eliminate these negative factors. How does it work? Through Quantum physics it is also possible to bring frequencies into a ?hyper frequency? , if that happens the molecule will fall apart and is not present anymore. I started to build formula?s out of 100% natural ingredients which, when mixed in the right ratio resulted in certain synergetic frequencies. The goal I wanted to achieve was to support the human body and the immune system and additionally to eliminate the negative factors by bringing them into a hyper frequency. By thorough testing I managed to develop a product line of formula?s which were able to achieve this goal. This resulted in great improvement on the treated autistic children; At this stage it means simply; ?The proof of the pudding is in the eating?. Scientific research This treatment protocol is not yet scientifically proven and I am eager to work together with scientists or specialists in the field who are willing to test this method in the conventional way. If we are able to get scientific proof of this concept we will be able to help a lot of autistic children and their families by using 100% natural products which cannot cause harm and have no side effects if used in the correct manner. In Januari 2006 we are starting a clinical trial over 50 autistic children in coorperation with a neurospychologist, and a child neurologist/pediatrician in which we will monitor them before during and after the Three Wells Neural Balance Protocol. Rob Nijssen The threewells productline Three wells is the productline of the formula?s I developed in order to balance the immune system. 15% of the profit of the products will go to the Three Wells Foundation, which researches the use of natural resources on auto immune-and neurotransmitter disorders.

 

 

NEURAL BALANCE PROTOCOL by Three Wells

 

Please note that The Clear Line products are taken one at a time, in the below mentioned order: Step 1) Clear Recovery for 15 days, than stop and continue with; After 5 days start the use of the sleep well lamp! Step 2) Clear Digest for 15 days, than stop and continue with;

 

Step 3) Clear Fungal for 21 day, than stop and continue with;

 

Step 4) Clear D-Tox for 9 days

 

Step 1 Clear Recovery

 

Ingredients: This formulae contains Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Lactobacillus Rhamnosus and Honey powder. Main Purpose: To support the Immune system to make anti-bodies against the vaccinations, by building up the intestinal flora ( 50% of the immune system is present in the intestines) and improve the growth of the white blood cells, especially the Peyer?s Patches which are part of the lymphatic system. The Peyer?s Patches are located in the gut and produce basophiles; a type white blood cell. These basophiles are able to eliminate viruses that are related to autism spectrum disorders and support the immunisationproces to produce anti bodies for the vaccinations.

 

Total dosage: 45 capsules: 3 times a day 1 capsule for 15 days.

 

Information: It is possible that there appears some hyperactivity during the treatment, this means that the neurotransmitter functions are improving. If during the first days of the protocol some diarrhea arises, there is no reason to be concerned, it means that the clearing has started. In some cases this reaction is a little too much. In these cases you can lower the dosage as long as you take all the 45 capsules.

 

Please note: After 5 days of using Clear Recovery start the use of the Sleep well lamp! The sleep Well lamp is a lamp which improves night rest. 1 out of 3 persons are having sleeping disturbances. It is obvious that people with a weakened immune system have even more problems. We think that a lot of sleeping disturbances are being caused by a lack of melatonin production. Melatonin is a hormone produced in the pineal gland and is regulated by the absorption of the sunlight through the eyes. If the nerves (read neurotransmitters) do not function properly the pineal gland does not get the right signal and therefore can not function properly. By developing a lamp with the same frequency as the neurotransmitter signal from the eye to the Pineal gland, we are able to stimulate the melatonin production in a very save and functional way. Leave the lamp on all night in the bedroom, it gives a diffusive bleu light of only 7 watts, it is possible to cover the light with a towel if the light is to shiny. It is not necessary to hang the lamp on the ceiling. You can use the lamp as long as you like. The first few days the sleeping pattern can be irregular because the body has to adjust, hold on it will become better!

 

After 45 capsules stop the Clear Recovery and continue with; Step 2 Clear Digest:

 

Ingredients: This formulae consists of honey powder, organic Calcium, magnesium, carbon, zinc, iron, Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Mate powder. Main purpose: To improve the functions of the digestive system focussing on the pancreas, the small intestine and the colon. The composition of this formulae improves the metabolism system and enzymatic processes of the pancreas Dosage : 45 capsules: 3 x 1 capsule per day during 15 days.

 

Information: The main organs which we want to support are; The Pancreas produces digestive enzymes, hormones and insulin. The Intestine is able to metabolise the food; where the digested food is taken in the bloodstream. 50% of the immune system is located in the digestive system. The Colon, where vitamin B12 is produced which is crucial for good neurotransmission.

 

After 15 days Clear Digest stop and continue with;

 

step 3 Clear Fungal

 

Ingredients: This formulae consists of 100% organic calcium, magnesium, carbon, zinc, iron, and kiwi-powder (which contains amylase). Main purpose: Stimulate the immune system to remove fungi and parasites (protozoa) from the body. Dosage: 45 capsules: Day 1 : ? capsule before bedtime (the die-off takes place during the time of sleep) Day 2+ 3 : 1 capsule before bedtime Day 4-6 : 2 x 1 capsule, one in the morning and one at bedtime Day 7-18: 3 x 1 capsule, during the meals

 

Information: Fungi and parasites can be present through the entire body (including brains) and can disturb organ- and brain functions. Fungi can cause a ?die-off? reaction, this means that when fungi die, they become toxic and can cause some diarrhea and sometimes a slight headache or vomiting. For this reason we build up the intake slowly in order to moderate the process of elimination /die-off reaction . If the die-off reaction is a bit to heavy you can lower the dosage as long as you take the 45 capsules. Further we always advise to drink during the whole protocol 1 ? 1 ? litres of mineral water a day to clean and flush the body. During the elimination of the fungi it is important tot take as less as possible alcohol and sugar (also natural sugars that can be found in fruit or fruit juices). Fungi feed themselves with sugar and alcohol)

 

After 18 days (or 45 capsules)Clear Fungal continue with;

 

 

Step 4 Clear D-tox

 

Ingredients: This formulae consists of blue green algae, Island moss and lactobacillus acidophilus. Main purpose: This formulae binds the heavy metals, an toxins out of the fatty cells (brain cells) and the calcium structures of the body and excretes them through the urine or skin. Information : It is important to drink enough water to clear and flush the system and support the body in it?s excreting process. Minor skin rashes and headaches ( hangover feeling) can occur, it confirms the excretion of the toxins and heavy metals. If the reaction is too extreme, you can lower the dosage or temporarily stop the intake as long as you take the 15 capsules.

 

Dosage : 15 capsules: Day 1 : ? a capsule before bedtime Day 2-3: 1 capsule before bedtime Day 4-9: 2 x 1 capsule, one in the morning and one at bedtime

 

Information: If you did send us a urine sample before starting the protocol we want to ask you to send us on the 5th day of taking Clear D-tox a new urine sample, in order to measure the progress that has been made regarding the organ functions and whether your body has succeeded in removing the negative loads. If during the protocol diseases like flu occurred, it is possible that the immune system has not regained its balance. In that case, we will remove eventual loads that are still present which can be determined after the second analyses.

 

End of the Neural Balance Protocol

 

If the loads are removed from the body we can start the building up of the immune system; we will do that by supplying the cells, neurotransmitters and organ functions building blocks and supportive ingredients.

 

For the build up and stabilisation of the Immune system we advise you to continue to take the formulae?s in our Essential pack.

 

 

Three Wells Essential Pack:

 

A combination of three synergetic formulae, to support the immune system and to supply the body with the essential supplements. The products of the Essential Pack are not included in the Neural Balance Package;

 

I. Mineral Essentials 100% natural ingredients assure an high intake in the bloodstream Ingredients: This formulae consists of 10 very important / essential minerals, among them are calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, selenium, borium, cupper and also carbon.

 

Information: These minerals are very important for the building of the immune system. Some of them are building blocks of the body, others are necessary for a good/ balanced metabolism. Take with Arctic Essence and Vitamin Essentials.

 

Dosage: 1 capsule in the morning

 

II. Arctic Essence Cod-liver Oil:

 

Ingredients: Our Codliver oil is pure and tastes like lemon! Our Codliver Oil is mocularly distilled, which means it is free of heavy metals, pcb?s, pak?s, is drinkable and does not taste like fish! This Cod liver Oil contains Omega 3 essential Fatty Acids DHA and EPA. Each cell in our body has a cell membrane? That consists of Omega 3 Fatty Acids, these essential Fatty Acids cannot be made by the body itself. That?s why we talk about building blocks.

 

Information: DHA supports the immune system and EPA improves neurotransmitter functions. The cod-liver oil contains from origin also Omega 6, omega 9, omega 11 and omega 13 Fatty Acids. Take together with Mineral Essentials and Vitamin Essentials.

 

Dosage : 1 teaspoon (2,5 ml) daily with the meals.

 

III. Vitamin Essentials Contains only natural vitamins. Ingredients: This is a balanced formula made of the following natural ingredients: Green Tea, contains Vitamin B2-C-D- K Mate powder; supports the immune system, contains choline, rutin vit. B2-B5-B6-Inositol Red carrot extract; beneficial effect on the digestive and nervous system, contains foliumacid, vit. B1-B2-B3-B6-C, beta-carotene (vitamin A), amonoacids. Grape seed powder; contains Linoleic acid, OPC Guava powder, supports the metabolism, contains lycopene, Beta-carotene, and high levels of vitamin C Inositol Hexafosfate ; an extract made out of rice, which is beneficial for the cell growth and is an impressive/ strong anti-oxidant. Kiwi powder: natural resource of amylase, an enzyme that is beneficial for the digestive system, contains vitamin C, Chromium, Potassium, Proteolytic Enzyme and Lutein.

 

Information: These natural ingredients are essential to support the immune system. the digestive system, the nervous system and cellular growth.

 

Dosage: 1 capsule in the morning together with Cod-liver Oil and Mineral essentials.

 

Information: Take together with Mineral Essentials and Arctic Essence

 

 

 

 

 

We advise you to have a urine analyses / check up every six month to make sure no chronical loads can occur.

 

General nutritional advice During the treatment protocol we advise u to minimise the intake of sugar and alcohol. It is important to drink a lot, at least 1-2 litres of mineral water a day.

 

Side effects During the first two ? three days of the treatment protocol you can notice headaches, nausea, skin rashes and diarrhea. This is a reaction of the body in order to excrete the toxins out of the body. These side effects are not caused by the products, but by the body itself. You can lower the dosage to minimise these side effects and moderate the secretion process.

 

The intake Unless prescribed otherwise, you can take the capsules half an our before o rafter your meal with a little bit of water. The capsules can be opened and dissolved in a little (about 5 ml) lukewarm water, this can be mixed through drinks, food or fruit.

 

Our products are not harmful in combination with other products. For the best result we advise you to wait a period of half an hour to an hour between the intake of other products.

 

Combination with medication The three-wells product scan be used together with other medication.

 

Diabetes As body / organ functions improve, the production of insulin by the pancreas can increase, therefore it is important to monitor your blood sugar level closely and measure more frequently.

 

Usage in case of pregnancy and breastfeeding All three wells products can be used safely during pregnancy and during the period of breastfeeding.

 

No additives All products consist of / are made of 100% natural ingredients.

 

Capsules The capsules are vegetarian NON GMO (not genetically modified)

They are not my trials I simply cut and pasted this post from another site. Rob Nijssen can take credit for the lot :lol: , which I also found long and confusing.

 

I have tried talking to Paul Shattock about this today as I would love to hear his take on this but he was not at work. Of course he may not even be in the Uk at the moment but I will keep trying.

Arrrgh just written a long piece and deleted it putting italics on part of it. OK, a much shorter version:

 

Iv'e never heard of quantum physics being used in this way - I need to look this up sometime. This man may be a quantum physicist but is he an immunologist, etc? The products he is 'prescribing' are over the counter products that anyone can buy. That is not to say that I don't think there is a basis for what he is saying, but I don't see anything new there apart from the QP aspect.

 

In many of our children the immune system is compromised. I like the Jyonouchi research on this, but if you were to carry out the protocol you would not be sure whether is was the removal of gluten and casein which is getting the results or the cocktail of remedies.

 

The best (and free!) advice I've ever come across is from Paul Shattock's Sunderland Protocol which does include use of probiotics, fish-oils and anti-fungals, etc.

 

And once you 'done' the immune system, there's the metabollic side. I waited for a long time for my son's metabollism to sort itself out naturally, but it just didn't happen.

'It is based on the principle that each molecule on the planet has a unique structure, and therefore has a unique frequency (vibratory resonance).'

There are plenty of ways of looking at molecular structure using vibrational spectroscopies -- whole journals are devoted to it -- so this is hardly new. You wouldn't, so far as I know, use it to tell you anything about viruses, as they aren't single molecules -- they're far too large and complex. You might use gene sequencing or electron microscopy, but I doubt this guy has access to those, if he really is working independently of mainstream science. And anyone who says that their own work is 'entirely new' and 'a breakthrough!' deserves, sadly, to be doubted from the start.

 

Right, cynic's hat off, and back to work.

This research goes along with my own obsessive interest as an asd in nutrition and neuroscience and i started this 10 days ago but have developed my own formula which is very restrictive and too detailed to go into here but the results already have been staggering, I've improved daily and 2 days ago my severe depression which has been bordering on psychosis just lifted and anxiety went too, I didn't hink his research went far enough but conncected something I can't explain that i hadn't previously been able too, in my opinion I have had obsessive interest in nutrition for 30 years and as hyperlexic who read 3000 books a year and every research article i can find, also with an interest in neuroscience I truly believe dietery stuff will help significantly but not "cure" because I still have the conceptualising and information processing difficulties associated with asd it is the depression and anxiety have gone but that is the worst thing.

Just to clarify my above post I only started this as a month long experiment as i thought it would take that long to see if i'd get any improvements so was staggereed to improve so quickly, and wanted to share with others, although perhaps I should whave waited until the month was up before doing so, I agree with what call me jaded none of this is new most of this info in on the internet anyway if you research it, I've been aware of it for a few years.

I've just heard of this. A friend is trying it out on her son. SHe said the results so far have been positive but ti is early days yet. But I would be reluctant. Ds has always had a good immune system. He hardly ever has colds, no ear infections, antibiotics. He does have diarrohea. I did the Sunderland test and had positives for gluten and casein intolerance. I haven't really tried the diet properly. But after talking to the staff at Sunderland I was struck by one of the comments that if other people in the family were tested they would also test positive to intolerances. SO I could test positive, but I'm not ASD. I know this is going off topic. But I'm interested in other's views on this.

My husband and my daughter would definitely test positive. When we first put my son on the diet I decided I couldn't cope with cooking two separate meals all the time, so I put everyone on it. My husband has coeliac in his family and his dad died of stomach cancer. He feels so much better on it that he never eats dairy now, and only occassionally wheat. My daughter's eczema has gone. I lost a dress size when I did it, but the convenience of a sandwich at lunchtime meant that hasn't been maintained.

 

Overall I don't think the diet is a punishment. It's a very healthy way to eat and I'd go as far as saying delicious if you steer away from GF bread. Downsides are it;s difficult to eat out (we've saved a fortune) and there is a great deal more cooking.

I forgot to mention my asthma and exzema have also gone, the asthma had become so bad I was on my inhaler several times a day and couldn't walk anywhere far without having an attack, and the itching on my skin has reduced considerably. It is very rigid and includes high dose probiotics digestive enzymes and blended raw green soups for enzymes ground linseeds sunflower and pumpkin seeds and good quality easy to digest protein powder, a massive detox i guess, I doubt I'll be able to sustain it longterm but shorterm it has helped. I will review in a month.

 

I felt so desperate I had to do something, and I though it was worth a go just to see, I had to borrow money however to afford sups, and a lot of people can't afford it and that is a problem and i'm not able to afford it long term either

I agree it might help some. A friend's child who is NT, but always full of cold and had ezcema, changed her son's milk to Soya milk. He stopped having a runny nose and the ezcama went. With DS I did try the diet, he went hyper, lost all eye contact, lost so much weight and was constantly hungry so I took him off it. He regressed for more then a month. HIs diarrhea got worse, he had red spots under his eyes. I've read that kids do regress but not for the length of time he did. Before he would eat anything, had a good diet and he's back to that. He's a happier guy. I admit I have reduced the gluten in his diet, but give him plenty of milk. The nursery could not believe the change in him, that he had become so much calm again and responsive and asked if the diet was working. I said no I've just put him back on normal food again.

 

It's the guilt thing, thinking that if I don't try it I'm giving my son a chance. Another thing that changed my mind is that I could relate that the diet might work, but it was when I started to think about enzymes and probiotics that I became worried, would I know where to stop and what are these chemicals I'm giving my son.

 

I don't want to offend any-one here as quite a few friends of mine do the diet and one is even starting the chelating process. But each child is different and the sad fact is that it works on some but not on others.

This is really interesting stuff.

 

Florrie, sounds great. Well done!

 

Pim, sorry to sound dumb, but how do I find out about the Sunderland test and is it expensive to have done.
