Light Therapy & Chiropractic/Autism

The result of a neurological disorder that affects the brain, autism impacts the normal development of the brain in the areas of social interaction and communication skills.   Many autistic children will exhibit sensory integration dysfunction, where problems exist in integrating information coming in from each of their five senses.  Often, autistic children receive too much sensory stimulation through one or more of their senses, and in order to turn down the volume they tend to avoid people, noises, and bright lights. 

Research suggests that a circuit involving the thalamus and frontal lobe of the brain functions abnormally in autism.  The thalamus is a relay station for nerve impulses in the brain. 

Eyelights Therapy
By stimulating the non-dominant eye you can excite the entire thalamus, resulting in global excitation of the brain.  A cascade of excitation and activity occurs and eventually reaches each of our other senses, resulting in a better ability to coordinate sensory information.  

Recommendations:  Red component, Clear lens, Top row brighter

The clear lens is the best lens to use in the early stages of treatment so as not to overwhelm the system with both light and color.
