Health and Environmental Illness

Resources about environmental illness and non-drug treatments


Autism shares some characteristics with environmental illness. In fact, it appears that autism is environmental illness with developmental consequences. 

Biomedical treatments for autism address metabolic problems, brain damage, and poisoning, with methods similar or identical to non-drug treatments for environmental illness. Treatment experience of one condition can illuminate treatment of the other. Thus, many links on this site's treatment pages refer to autism as well as to environmental illness.
