Environmental Issues in Autism Spectrum Disorder and How We Can Manage Them Better


The environment around us is constantly changing and usually not for the better. We must be able to recognize, try to avoid, and then remove these toxins safely so they do not negatively affect our health and metabolism. Many children and adults with ASD have alterations in their biochemistry and genetic polymorphisms, whereby they are disadvantaged in the ability to cleanse and nourish their cells. First, identify the harmful ingredients to avoid (i.e., heavy metals, chemicals, GMOs, plastics, hormone disrupters, pesticide exposures) and then identify and effectively treat many of the complicated tick-borne diseases as well as fungal infections, when present.

It is no longer "You are what you eat," but should be "You are what you eat, which you cannot excrete." Once these harmful agents are identified, we need to determine how to safely decrease body burden, reduce the inflammatory processes they create, and oxygenate the tissues for tissue repair to be optimized.

Dr. Dornfeld hopes to be able to share a great deal of information on how to safely repair ourselves, especially since many environmental insults are exponentially growing around us as we need to restore ourselves to a more healthful state.

We hope you can join us live on February 23rd at 4 PM MT. If not, don’t worry, signing up will still grant you access to the webinar recording.

Dr. David Dornfeld has been preventing and reversing illness at Family Wellness Center in Atlantic Highlands, NJ, for 36 years, while focusing on "environmental medicine and tick-borne concerns," and how to repair those exposure related insults. Throughout this time, he has developed a special interest in working with children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. He encompasses many aspects of Family Medicine, Nutrition, Osteopathic spinal manipulation, Chelation therapy, IV infusion therapy, and Hyperbaric therapies to synergistically help many improve. He received his medical degree from the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in Maine and completed his residencies in Ohio and Colorado in 1986. He is board certified in Family Medicine (ACOFP) and became board certified in anti-aging medicine by the International Society of Anti-Aging medicine in 2000. Dr. Dornfeld has been a member of the American College for the Advancement in Medicine (ACAM) since 1994 and became double certified in chelation therapy through his training. He completed his fellowship from Medical Academy of Pediatric Special Needs (MAPS) in 2013, and helps train many professionals and parents in safe hyperbaric therapies, chelation therapies, Lyme related disorders (ILADS training x 10+ years) and preventive medicine, both nationally and internationally.  Recently, Dr. Dornfeld was the only US physician asked to participate in an Autism Summit in Cairo, Egypt, expanding his guidance to help physicians in the Middle East combat the issues associated with children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
