Many parents have reported that within a few days of starting DMG with their autistic child, the child’s behavior improved noticeably, better eye contact was seen, frustration tolerance increased, the child’s speech improved, or more interest in speaking was observed.
An article in the New England Journal of Medicine (October 1982) reported that a 22-year-old mentally retarded man, who had 16 to 18 seizures per week on standard anticonvulsants, experienced only three seizures per week while on DMG. Two attempts to remove the DMG dramatically increased seizure frequency.
Dr. Bernard Rimland, Ph.D., president and founder of the Autistic Research Institute, confirms receiving hundreds of communications from hopeful parents who have seen remarkable changes in their autistic children after using DMG. Dr. Rimland compiled Treatment Effectiveness Surveys filled out by parents about the effects of different drugs, nutrients, dietary modifications, and therapies on their autistic children.
The results of the survey of 21,500 parents were published in the Autism Research Review International newsletter in April 2002. It reviewed the use of key nutrients and found significant results with regard to DMG. Consequently, Dr. Rimland has recommended that parents give DMG to their autistic children and has recommended it for anybody of any age along the autistic spectrum.
