FAQ’s Autism Spectrum Conditions

What are the most Frequently Asked Questions?

Q: Do I need to tell my GP?

A: Yes. This information is not a substitute for professional medical advice and self-diagnosis is not advised.  You should always check with you GP first, prior to trying any complementary, alternative or holistic therapies.   They are not intended to replace medical care and it is important to seek medical approval first if you are pregnant or taking medication.  You should never delay seeking medical advice, disregard medical advice, or discontinue medical treatment because of information in this report.

Q: I am still waiting for a diagnosis, does this prevent me from starting the programme?

A: No, this is one of the major frustrations of spectrum disorders, that accessing support is restricted until there is a diagnosis.   As long as you GP is aware of your intention, this programme can commence prior to a diagnosis and all members of the family can benefit from it.

Q: Will this conflict with any medication or other therapy?

A: No, this is a natural and holistic programme which can be used in conjunction with conventional medicine and other therapies.  A range of safe, pure and effective nutritional supplements and the highest quality herbals, complex homeopathic and complementary products have been sourced from a reputable company.  The ASYRA is designed with a test plate so that any physical products recommended are tested first for suitability and quantity required.

 Q: Is this a cure for Autism or spectrum disorders?

A: No, there is currently no cure for ASD’s.  This is a programme which can support an individual to detoxify from harmful substances as well as re-balance and strengthen the immune system in a non-invasive, pain and drug-free way.  Both toxicity and a weakened immune system have been recognised by scientists along with genetics as the multiple risk factors which may have contributed to the symptoms of ASD’s.

 Q: Do we have to use the GAPs diet?

A: No, not necessarily.  There are aspects of some of the diets which exclude certain foods which may or may not be appropriate.  Every person is different and once the food sensitivities have been identified you will know which foods to avoid, but overall the aim is to heal and seal the gut and prevent food sensitivities in the future.  There may also be some extreme cases where there is a requirement for a more strict diet.

 Q: What results can I expect by using this approach?

A: Every person is different and the response will be dependent on the severity of the symptoms experienced and the body’s response to healing.  However, the benefits of detoxing harmful substances and eradicating nutritional deficiencies will impact all areas of health.

 Q: How fast will I start seeing results?

A: Sometimes straight away, although the ASYRA remedies are provided with a time frame of how long they will take to rebalance and this time is denoted by whatever will take the longest to restore.

 Q: Are there any side effects?

A: ASYRA remedies do NOT cause side effects.  The remedy is organic brandy and water (or sugar pillules) and it is a carrier solution for the energetic frequencies.  However a healing crisis may occur.  In releasing toxicity from the body, it has to come out – ‘The nose is the drain of the brain’ and symptoms of headaches, itchy watery eyes, runny nose, and ear discharge or mouth ulcers can appear.  Any problems in the gut may also cause initial symptoms of diarrhoea, stomach pains or sickness.  These are positive signs of detoxification which demonstrate a response to the signatures.  Any concerns, please do not hesitate to discuss with your practitioner.

 Q: What is an ASYRA?

 A:  The Asyra is an energy medicine and treatment system based on traditional Chinese medicine incorporated into the latest technology.  It is based on bio-energetic principles and can help a practitioner evaluate the bio-energetic status of their clients in a few minutes. It uses computerised electro-dermal testing to test the state of 40 major organ functions and helps reveal:

Harmful metals, toxins, parasites, virus, fungus, bacteria and other pathogens that shouldn’t be present in the body

Nutritional deficiencies such as amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals

Hormonal imbalance, neurotransmitters, cell salts and emotional stresses or dental and vertebral conditions which may be affecting the body’s natural equilibrium.

 Q: Does the ASYRA diagnose?

 A:  No, it is not a diagnostic tool.  By medical definitions, a disease is an interruption, cessation, or disorder of body functions, systems, or organs (Stedman’s Medical Dictionary) measured by a chemical and/or mechanical process. The ASYRA does not measure a chemical or mechanical process. It does measure and treat an energy imbalance.  Example of other energy therapies are Acupuncture, Bio field viewer,  Bio-resonance, Bach flowers, Breath work, Crystals, EFT, Electromagnetics, Homeopathy, Music, SCENAR, Reiki, Tai-chi, Thought Field ,Yoga, Zero balancing and many many other commercial devices, therapies and techniques.

 Q: Is ASYRA therapy safe?

A:  Yes, ASYRA is an FDA registered device that non-invasively screens for energetic imbalance that reflect imbalances in your physiology, and the presence of toxicity.  ASYRA practitioners undergo specialised training in addition to their existing practitioner core disciplines and are separately insured as ASYRA practitioners

Q: How does an ASYRA work?

A:  The Asyra technology is based on a process called bio-feedback and it is used to test and record the body’s energetic response to various substances. Bio-feedback is the body’s own electrical process of monitoring how your body responds to various stimuli. The Asyra simply passes the energetic signature of frequency of different stimuli through the body and records how it responds.

Q: What is involved in the ASYRA screening?

A: The ASYRA screening is a quick non-invasive, pain-free screening test which involves holding some brass handles while the protocols are run.  For those who can’t hold the handles, there are many other ways to get contact with the skin or surrogate testing can also be used.

Q: I am worried about bringing my child for an appointment in case she misbehaves and you can’t do the screening?

A: I would always advise to bring the child, however the ASYRA has been used for testing babies as well as vulnerable adults.   There are lots of options for completing the screening, including surrogate testing via a hair or nail sample.  If your child won’t take part, then we can always give them something enjoyable to do and complete the screening with a surrogate, the results are just as accurate.

 Q: What is SCENAR therapy or the pain genie?

A: The SCENAR is a small and very effective device which can be used for pain relief.  It is non-invasive, drug-free stimulation of the body’s natural self-healing abilities.

 Q: Is SCENAR therapy safe?

A: Yes, SCENAR is licensed for use in the EU for pain relief; the British Standards Institute and carries a CE mark.  SCENAR practitioners undergo specialised training in addition to their existing practitioner core disciplines and are separately insured as SCENAR practitioners.

Q: Do we need SCENAR therapy, my child is not in pain?

A: SCENAR therapy is an optional choice.  It can help detect where there may be energy blockages and free them up.  It is also a fantastic method to help with some of the symptoms of spectrum type disorders such as allergies, diarrhoea or constipation in a drug-free way.

Q: Is there any scientific proof for the effectiveness of this programme?

A: No, However, there is emerging evidence of the individual elements incorporated as part of the programme and fortunately since it is natural and holistic programme there is no requirement to wait for proof to try the programme.   Conversely, there is also very little criticism of the individual elements, and of those discovered, they are more media based weak arguments for entertainment value rather than peer-reviewed research. However they have all played a part in how the final programme has developed.
