Do you think Stem Cell therapy & or Hyperbearic Oxygen breathing therapy will eventually cure autism?

My daughter is not genetically autistic, but has the diagnosis of PDD/NOS that stands for Pervasive Developmental Disorder - Not otherwise specified after she experienced 2 and 3 hour long Grande Mal Seizures at the age of 24 months and right before she hit 48 months of age following her immunizations in just a matter of a couple of minutes to a couple of hours. We had her tested for Fragile X mutation gene and she tested negative for it and she has a spottless microarray chromosomal analysis that took Childrens Hospital Medical Center - Human Genetics and Testing department about 3 months to read - her entire chromosomal strands. That tested spottless for everything it tests for, including any signs of autism. Do you think going to Costa Rica in Central America or to clinics in northern Mexico that offer (Adult only) stem cell therapy is a wise decision and Hyperbearic Oxygen therapy in your community?

  • Stem cell to cure Autism?
    Never heard of it.

    Now about HBOT it is supposed to help with delivering oxygen, which in turn helps the immune system.
    Is is very expensive. Nobody is looking for ways to increase the cost of health care. *## Some insurances are beginning to pay for it. This treatment will someday be part of the mainstream interventions.
    Remember: Any tissue in order to heal requires oxygen,

  • Doubt it. But then again I don't want to be cured.

  • Did you watch the show on discovery last week, I think it was called unlocking autism? Sorry I forgot the exact name... but they said all these so called cures don't work and that some people may just be experiencing a placebo effect. It makes you think... There sure would be a lot of money to be made giving moms false hope.
