Dramatic improvements in autistic children when they get a fever suggests that the disease may be reversible if one can replicate the phenomenon in other ways …

  • Can you do a video on the relationship between a mother having an infection in pregnancy and having an autistic child? There is some thought that diet could help regulate the problematic immune response. Would love your take on the research.

  • My son has autism and I was hoping for a study for a while now. I have noticed his symptoms fading, I know it sounded odd to others but I am seeing such progression I'm shocked. its the food, greens are life 🌱 Thanks for the video you made my day 💕

  • Wow, simply incredible. It's awesome to see that studies like this are getting funded by people. This is encouraging and gives me hope that the future is not completely lost to big business. Can't wait to see the next part – keep 'em coming Dr. Greger!

  • I have noticed a trend with many of these recent videos where we will be hanging on a thread for the sequel with the answers…. Dr Greger never used to keep us all hanging like that ! Lol

  • Coincidentally, started watching this as I was cutting up some broccoli for my son! He also shows the same improvements when he's got a fever. Thank goodness that broccoli is one of the few veggies my son really likes!

  • So the mustard family (brassica. crustacius) all uses world war 2 mustard gas as a chemical weapon against predators and it has to protect it self from injury . That is that chemical.
    Mustard gas (brime stone. Sulphur) is the most common pesticide on earth , lately , it is in every thing as pesticide lately .
    Brimestone , sulfure . World war two weapon of mass destruction and those drugs that effect that gene that some what fights the damage , are the next wave of trillion dollar drug scam to be pushed on the public . They will stop the immune response and detox response by the body making people feel a bit better at first until the damage racks up and they run in to the doctors office for a higher dose and more and more drugs .

  • It would make a difference whether it was a dry fever or a fever which has broken into sweat.. Just incase anyone decides to try to induce fever in a child any which way.. A dry fever is dangerous, but a broken fever is a natural response to fight the inflammation or infection..

    But brilliant information ..thank you

  • Dr. Greger, you are one of my heroes. I am actively trying to be like you. Please keep up the good work! I can think of no educator doing as much good for the world as you are.

  • I concur. My boy was almost non verbal had a bad fever at about 5 years old. He became very communicative and quite 'normal' for the two days he had the fever.

  • I'm autistic, and I have to say that this is a classic conflation of correlation and causation. Also, just because the neurotypical world seems to want us "more talkative", "more communicative", etc. doesn't mean that is what any one of us in particular wants. Quit taking away our agency in even the most minute aspects of our lives. I have subscribed to this channel for quite some time, but am now unsubscribing due to this descent into pseudoscience.

  • I am wondering how this might help a child with Tourette my 8yr old has TS and ADHD? Also most autism/adhd diets exclude gluten, does excluding gluten have as much as an improvement as just removing dairy alone? My son hates rice and most rice pastas taste terrible so getting in enough calories without gluten is a challenge for us. He is vegetarian by his own choice and has made us go with him…lol

  • I think Autism is a treatable illness. Many of the symptoms go away with treatment, and what you are left with is an intelligent, independent-thinking person. I've seen many Autistic children change very little over years of time, without treatment, though. prescription drugs aren't curative. The drugs just mask symptoms and cause further permanent brain damage. Some of the drugs are dangerous.

    You have to eliminate toxin exposure, and change the diet to strictly avoid gluten, casein, artificial food colorings, etc.
    therapy is needed to help them learn what they missed developmentally.

    I think too many vaccines at one time are part of the problem. It seems as if you have an impaired immune system, and then some of these introduced diseases are perpetually at play.

    Autism is being studied as part of psychoneuroimmunology. It's a clue that the genes they have discovered to be implicated in autism all regulate the immune system.

  • While I personally do not consider my autism to be a "disease"…it does have it's drawbacks.

    Mainly for me, I'm over sensitive to empathy and pain. I cannot stand to hear about other people's distress without feeling it, as if telepathically they are putting their feelings and experiences into my head. This makes it impossible for me to relate to others when in they are in distress. It's not because I lack empathy, but I respond too heavily to it. It's as if my executive functioning and cognitive ability to relate are so overpowered by what I'm feeling, they shut down, and all I'm left with is the feeling without understanding and ability to actually *understand*, thus caring drops dramatically as a result of the overactive protective urges. It becomes an "everyone fend for themselves!" kind of mentality and I run away. I don't like the feeling of being SO empathetic I can't stand being empathetic which makes me unable to relate and become unempathetic!

    However, on a fever, or even in high temperature environments, I can bypass this. I can actually feel empathy without my own emotions getting in the way. I can be incredibly open to possibilities and new understandings without recoiling into denial, or going completely deluded and crazy about them. My sense of reasoning actually feels like it's there instead of hiding in the background, pushed to the side by my feelings. I don't worry obsessively about others, pain is no longer a terrifying thing, I feel a much greater connection to people and my environment. I'm still autistic, but it seems to allow me to access other regions by allowing me to be more fluid in my responses, even getting to the point to where I can control it exceedingly well!
