Hi all,

I don't post much on here at all and don't have time to read much of the postings however I just thought I would put on here that my twin boys (both ASD, 3 yrs) have been on Methyl B12 injections for the last 6 weeks and I can see improvement for sure. One of the twins is doing much better than that other and I know it is from the MB12 shots because over the school holidays there has been no therapy/kindy and that is when I started the injections. One of the twins hand leads to everything now, even pushes me in the butt to move to where he wants me to go if I don't hold his hand, for instance when the DVD is frozen, he will find me in the house and pull me to the TV to fix it, he takes me to the pantry to open it to get out what he wants, he is using visuals to tell me what he wants, his eye contact is much better and this is all in 6 weeks. Still no speech however I can't have it all in just 6 weeks.

So for the record a) no they don't hurt, I use numbing cream and I then inject them in the bottom when they are asleep, they never wake up and b) they are $5 per needle every 3rd day so not that expensive and c) no bad side effects ie: has not disrupted their sleep and not overly hypo (well, they have always been hypo)....however every child can respond differently.

Yes, this is a biomedical treatment but sometimes these things can help. For anyone who was like me and wondered about giving this sort of thing a go....all you can do is try. Every child is different.

Hi Joey, we have been giving B12 for a few months now and although DS isnt talking also, he is attempting when we prompt him. His eye contact is now amazing and he is imitating SOOO much. We have seen a definate big improvement. His sleep has also gotten alot better also.

We do all the bio medical stuff along with EI and the balance is working quite wellSmile

we've also had really good results with the B12 shots ...



We stopped them over christmas whilst interstate on holidays - and saw our little girl melt down at the drop of a hat.



A couple of days later after we were back home and had given her a shot, she was much better.



The 'idea' of giving your child a shot is actually much harder than the actual 'physical action' of doing it ... if you know what I mean Wink

Hi Joey,



Thanks so much for sharing. Its good to hear from someone who is actually doing the shots, and good to hear good results other than comments from people who have not even tried them (like oh I hear they hurt).



I commend you for trying them, and wish you and your gorgeous ones continued good luck with them.

Hi,

Dumb question - who is it that you saw to organise the B12 shots?  Was it your pead or someone else?  I wouldn't mind looking into it, but I have no clues as to where to start.

Mum to 5 year old DS (HFA) and 2.5 year old DD (NT?)

hi sweetchild,



normally its a paed specialising / having experience with BioMedical approaches to autism.



The MINDD institute has a list of BioMedical doctors around Australia:

http://mindd.org/s/index.php?/pages/search.html&f=



Dr Neubrander (US) is supposed to be main man of B12 (from what I gather) ... there is a lot of info at his website if your interested:

http://www.drneubrander.com/



Some NT people actually take B12 shots just for the health benefits ... apparently.



We've only seen good things come of it with our little girl.

Hi,

in relation to the MB12 shots, we use a GP (Dr Richard Stuckey) on the Gold Coast (we are in Brisbane) and he went over to the USA and trained in the Pfeiffer Treatment protocol (which is what Dr Neubrander does).  He did a script for the shots and then we ordered them from Kingsway Compounding in Sydney. The order only took 3 days to arrive. They are very good and I dont need repeat scripts, I just ring up and make an order and deposit the money. Easy.

We have tried GF diet, supplements etc, but the only bio-medical thing we have tried that seems to make a difference is the Methyl B12 shots. The cost was about $700 out of pocket (per child) to get Blood/urine/hair testing and the inital consultation.

We have also looked into Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment but I have to go in the chamber with the boys and I cant as I got claustrophobic and because it has to be done 5 days per week for 2 mths I don't have anyone else that can do it for me (hubby can't get away from work) so I will have to wait until the boys are older to go in themselves. Very expensive but once again, it could help. My boys also go to intervention (AEIOU) 5 days a week.

Cheers.

Hi

I want to try the MB12 shots on my 4yo but my GP won't help.

Does anyone know any docs in Sydney can? Thanks!
