Dr. Amy Yasko
Dr. Amy Yasko’s integrative healthcare practice specializes in chronic inflammation, and immunological and neurological disorders. She has achieved considerable success in halting and in some cases reversing the effects of debilitating diseases, including ALS, MS, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, SLE, Myasthenia gravis and autism. Most recently her primary focus is on her program to help reverse autism. At the core of her approach is genetic testing for mutations in the methylation pathway, and appropriate dietary change and nutritional supplements to help bypass existing blocks.

A parent-founded, parent-funded, and parent-led organization of more than 350 families. Their mission is to share the truth with parents about the cause of their child’s Neurological Disorders (ADD/ADHD, Asperger’s, PDD-NOS, and Autism) so they can focus on treatment. They believe these neurological disorders (“NDs”) are environmental illnesses caused by an overload of heavy metals, live viruses, and bacteria. Proper treatment of these children, known as “biomedical intervention”, is leading to recovery for thousands. The cause of this epidemic of NDs is extremely controversial. They believe the primary causes include the tripling of vaccines given to children in the last 15 years (mercury, aluminum and live viruses); maternal toxic load and prenatal vaccines; heavy metals like mercury in our air, water, and food; and the overuse of antibiotics.
