"Recently, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has increased in popularity as a treatment for autism. Numerous studies document oxidative stress and inflammation in individuals with autism; both of these conditions have demonstrated improvement with HBOT, along with enhancement of neurological function and cognitive performance." - DA Rossignol -International Child Development Resource Center.

"One must also consider other sources of systemic immune stimulation, including that from infectious illnesses, vaccinations, exposure to pesticides and industrial chemicals, and even stress. " These sources can lead to immunoexcitotoxicity and this can lead to priming of microglia and evoke microglia activation that can lead to early dementia, Alzheimer's and Autism from neuroinflammatory reactions.Joseph Maroon, MD Nuerosurgeon.  Immunoexcitotoxicity as a central mechanism in chronic traumatic encephalopathy - a unifying hypothesis.
