Seminar to be given on Autism Symptoms

A treatment believed by some to reduce the symptoms of autism will be the topic of seminars in Springfield and Nixa on May 1 and 3.
The first seminar will be 7-9 p.m. May 1 at Campbell United Methodist Church, 1747 E. Republic Road in Springfield. The May 3 seminar will be 7-9 p.m. at the Nixa Senior Center, 404 S. Main St.

Scientists at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas and Immunotec Research Ltd. have launched a study of a specially formulated whey protein isolate, Immunocal.
It will be used to raise glutathione levels in an effort to lessen symptoms of autism, a neurological developmental disorder that affects children's ability to socialize normally, impairs language skills and causes other behavioral abnormalities.
The causes of autism have not been clearly identified, but some research suggests that chronic biochemical imbalance plays a role, according to Immunotec. A press release by the company says that studies have shown that levels of the major intracellular antioxidant, glutathione, is typically about 50 percent lower in children with autism.
When glutathione levels reach a critically low degree, people are more vulnerable to toxins and immune dysfunction, according to Immunotec.
Sandi Walper, an Immunotec Research representative, Branson-based performer Barbara Fairchild and Opal Erickson, coordinator, will co-host the two seminars about glutathione. Walper works with the research doctors and oversees education seminars. Fairchild will share her story about how Immunocal changed her mother's life while she was suffering from Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases.

They will talk about how the company believes raising glutathione in the cells can have a positive impact on other diseases including HIV/AIDS, cancer, hepatitis, multiple sclerosis, diabetes and Crohn's disease.
For details or reservations, call Opal Erickson at 743-2427.
