Is q10 safe to take with out doctors  care and how fast does it work ?how does it work in the body.

Coenzyme Q10: Cholesterol lowering Statins do seem to lower Coenzyme Q10 levels. Statins also cause muscle aches and pains (myopathies). Coenzyme Q10 deficiency MAY be one mechanism for statin-induced myopathies. However, taking Coenzyme Q10 with statins to decrease the probability of developing statin-induced myopathies is unproven. Myopathies usually resolve by just switching to another statin. ...Read more

I'm a busy mom with 4 kids and a job i don't have time to work out is the hCG diet a safe and effective alternative?

HCG: My philosophy is that the best way to lose weight is not by dieting or a pill, but by changing your lifestyle to a healthier one. Make small changes. Eat the right portions, eat 3-5 small meals a day, cut back on carbs and sugars, increase lean protein/veggie/fruit/water intake, & start doing some cardiovascular exercise. I know it's tough with the kids, but this a better solution than hcg. ...Read more

What is the difference between an autism tantrum and a meltdown?

What is the difference between an autism tantrum and a meltdown?

None. "Meltdown" : is a euphemism for tantrum. BCBA's do a Functional Behavioral Assessment: Antecedent, Behavior, Consequence, then teach parents how to ignore tantrums & other maladaptive behaviors completely & consistently, track the "extinction burst" or ^ in severity & duration then extinction of the behaviors. Kids with ASD have high cortisol levels that rise & persist even higher when stressed. ...Read more

Can intuniv be used for asperger's / emotional meltdowns/ violent thoughts?

Can intuniv be used for asperger's / emotional meltdowns/ violent thoughts?

Perhaps: This is more difficult than it seems. All autism spectrum disorders are not alike. Looking at functional brain scans[spect} has taught us this important lesson. Thus, all aspergers folks will not respond to therapy the same way.. In general guanfacine[intuniv] helps many but may have to be combined with Oxcarbazepine [trileptal] or tegretol to achieve the outcome you describe.Functionalbrain scan. ...Read more

Is it "normal" for an asd kid to sometimes laugh while having a meltdown or being aggressive.

Is it "normal" for an asd kid to sometimes laugh while having a meltdown or being aggressive.

The word "Autism", : from the Greek word "aftismos", or " into ones self", was transliterated into English as "autismos". The root word is "auto". Laughing or crying in response to an internal, rather than an environmental, stimulus & lack of Theory of Mind, understanding that others can have a different emotional reaction or point of view in a given situation than oneself, lead to what seems like lack of empathy. ...Read more

Mini Meltdown: can mean many different things to different people. You sound concerned. Is he secretive in other areas a well? That could be a big problem. Encourage him to speak to someone, e.g., his doctor, a therapist, or a prudent spiritual leader. Peace and good health.

My daughter is 4, last few months she's been asking the same questions daily and the same routine daily too, if she skips a step its a meltdown. Ocd?

Maybe: Or there are other things it could be too. It could be anxiety. It could be 4 year old behavior. If she's really very rigid and inflexible in her routines and can't handle any deviation, she could be on the autistic spectrum. It's really very important that you discuss this with your pediatrician. The earlier any of these problems is addressed, the better the outcomes tend to be. ...Read more

My son has had a lot of anxiety & meltdowns lately& he''s also had a lot of change; death in the family, started school, we moved. How can I help? 6yr

I would encourage: You to speak with a therapist and consider having your child meet with a play therapist, he is showing signs that he is having trouble coping with all the changes and losses in his life. It will only help him cope with it better. Kids enjoy play therapy and feeling understood by the therapist. Often 6 yr olds fear that they caused the death due to magical thinking. Therapy can help clear this up. ...Read more

My daughter has meltdowns that last anywhere from 20 minutes to hours. During these times she is inconsolable and becomes extremely violent towards ot?

Ignore bad behavior : If your child is between 18 month to 3 then these are tantrums typical of this developmental stage. Ignore most of the fussing and crying, put her in a safe place (her room) hurting others is never ok. Show her this by always using nonviolent punishment and not spanking her. Since I don't know her age, it's hard to say much more specifically. ...Read more

4 yr old who throws major temper tantrums has multiple meltdowns everyday. Can get physical with you at times. What can/should be done? Desperate!

Talk to your doctor: First, talk with your child's doctor. She may recommend a child therapist or behavior counselor. Give your child choices where you can, but not where you can't. You can say "it's time for bed. Do you want to read a book or sing a song before you go to sleep?" don't say "do you want to go to bed"! avoid unnecessary power struggles and choose your battles. Be consistent with important rules, though. ...Read more
