Have you heard of the Cell Danger Response as a theory to explain all comorbid symptoms associated with Autism?
There are a number of triggering factors associated with a higher incidence of Autism and comorbid conditions. These include genetics, mitochondrial disorders, alterations to the microbiome etc.
But in what is like the String Theory of Disease, Dr. Bob Naviaux proposed the Cell Danger Response (made famous by the excellent Suramin study) as a thread tying the different triggers into one integrating factor.
Dr. John Green makes the Cell Danger Response easy to understand and helps us look at practical methods to work with our children with Autism to reduce this alarm signaling in their bodies.
