    Another study implicating serotonin in the development of autism. The causative role of serotonin in asthma is well known and is one of the reasons why drugs like tianeptine are so effective for asthma. The fact that asthma and autism are more likely to co-occur makes the serotonin-autism connection even stronger. Also, there is a study showing autism improvement in children taking cyproheptadine.

    There's a coincidence of asthma in many diseases, like diabetics and crohn's. Many people with chronic disease have comorbidities. All chronic diseases have much things in common than currently being acknowledged.

    Peat has writen about these things (estrogen, serotonin, nitric oxide, ...) and is certainly right with most of his statements. But it's time now we look deeper, figure out why at the molecular level why things go awry and what causes dysfunction in these molecular pathways. Peat has (partly) written why, but it is by far not a complete picture. For example most substances, peat mentions to control, are involved in the immune system interactome which is involved in every disease.

    This is especially needed for those who have acquired disease or chronic dysfunction when there's way more involved.

    I've read more than a story about autism "cured" with probiotics. It definitely comes from the gut. I'm not sure the lack of synaptic pruning in childhood can be reversed, but with the right approach you can probably grow appropriate social skills while retaining the hyperconnectivity which becomes more of a gift than a "disorder".

    Can the brain become serotonin dependent? Perhaps children with autism's brains become ''addicted'' to serotonin?

    I have always believed autism could be physcial

    How do you explain autistic people have different facial structure ?
