“Astra has been instrumental in the astounding progress that my son has made in his state of health, sleep, anxiety and sensory issues, digestive problems, ability to focus, motor skills and co-ordination. She is incredibly well informed - she has given me clear, sensible, well founded explanations for the cause of many of the symptoms of Jonah’s autism that one simply does not get on the NHS!
Having access to this information has been incredibly empowering for me as a parent - I feel more enabled to really take ownership of supporting my son.”
ASC and Physical Health Conditions
Most of us, as parents or carers of ASC children and young people, are very familiar with the co-morbid conditions that go hand in hand with Autistic Spectrum Condition: digestive issues, food allergies and intolerances, anxiety, problems with sleep, low energy, hyperactivity, hypermobility, inability to focus, motor skills and coordination...and so on.
What is less discussed in the mainstream is the direct interrelation between these health conditions and the ASC condition. Many of these symptoms can be explained by poor absorption of nutrients, over sensitive adrenal systems, disrupted hormonal systems, weak immune system and high levels of toxicity.
The dysfunction in the physical and biomedical systems so very common in the ASC picture have direct and serious implications on general health AND, most critically, on an individual’s neurological function and development.
The mASCot Clinic therapist team works with the family to unpick and treat the complex, individual physiological picture of each child.
