Summary of Video Blog: Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) continues to be on the rise causing tremendous hardship to the families impacted by its relentless impact on the lives of their loved ones. At BioNexus Health we see complicated cases of children of all ages diagnosed with ASD. In-depth history, examination and symptom analysis often points to neurological Lyme Disease in over 65% of cases of Autism we see. It is important to investigate further, gather laboratory evidence and factor in the appropriate treatment for the tick borne infections identified. Proper and timely intervention can change the course of the child’s condition, stop damage in its tracks and create the requisite environment for the child to heal. When a child with ASD heals, it sends waves of positivity to the entire family and the community as a whole with reduced strain on resources and greatly improved quality of life.
