The purpose of this site is to collect lab research by medical doctors about herbs that are proven to treat illnesses and counter the false attacks on herbs by the medical industry and false claims by alternative medicine. I let the science tell the facts.

Aspergers Disorder
Aspergers is related to Autism

Is selinum the magic bullet for aspergers and autism? Be sure to use vegatable based not mineral based selenium. see ../chemistry/minerals/selinium.htm

Those of us who do not have Autism or Asperger problems cannot really understand their issues. I have created a page for those who have these diseases to express their views and feelings in the hope that it will benifit them and those who associate with them. See their story

Research on this disease is not complete. I welcome comments, reports or links about this or any disease. If you want to write an article please go to Submit articles.


1. Treatment Options Mercury/Metal Toxicity in Autism and Related Developmental Disabilities: Consensus Position Paper

2. "Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, John A. Burns School of Medicine, University of Hawaii at Manoa, Biomedical Sciences Building, Suite 222, 651 Ilalo Street, Honolulu, 96813, HI, USA,

Mercury is a well-known environmental toxicant, particularly in its most common organic form, methylmercury. Consumption of fish and shellfish that contain methylmercury is a dominant source of mercury exposure in humans and piscivorous wildlife. Considerable efforts have focused on assessment of mercury and its attendant risks in the environment and food sources, including the studies reported in this issue. However, studies of mercury intoxication have frequently failed to consider the protective effects of the essential trace element, selenium. Mercury binds to selenium with extraordinarily high affinity, and high maternal exposures inhibit selenium-dependent enzyme activities in fetal brains. However, increased maternal dietary selenium intakes preserve these enzyme activities, thereby preventing the pathological effects that would otherwise arise in their absence. Recent evidence indicates that assessments of mercury exposure and tissue levels need to consider selenium intakes and tissue distributions in order to provide meaningful risk evaluations."

3. "St. John’s Wort, which has been used in traditional medicine for centuries and research has confirmed the positive effects of this herb on mental and emotional health. Melissa officinalis has been studied for its beneficial effect on the nervous system, and is well-known for its soothing and calming properties. Cina (6C) is used homeopathically to relieve irritability, increase tolerance and prevent temper tantrums. Regular use of Cina is also thought to make children less stubborn and more affectionate.. Passiflora is known for its soothing properties as a general nerve tonic to help naturally maintain a positive demeanor, balance emotions, settle the nerves and ease minor worries, as confirmed by clinical research. Chamomila (6C) is used homeopathically for children who are irritable and difficult to please, as well as for those with a low pain threshold. It is also well–known for its soothing effect on infant colic, symptoms of teething babies and its ability to promote sleepiness naturally."
