Discussions that mention urecholine

Autism Spectrum board


Hello everyone. I am new to this board and have been researching again the subject of cod liver oil and urecholine treatment. I am a nurse so I feel comfortable administering this treatment. What I hope you members will be willing to share with me is positive and negative results from parents that have or are trying this treatment.

Thanks : )

I just wanted to leave a little note about my son's experiences with urecholine. He has been on it now for a few months (late Jan.). He has had great luck with it. In conjunction with the cod liver oil, his spontaneity has increased a great deal. He is also on GABA supplements as well. I would definitely recommend this treatment along with a restriction diet. I wish you luck.
Thanks for your reply. I was beginning to think noone else on this board had tried the cod liver oil and urecholine.

Would you mind sharing with me other things that you noted changes in your son? What are GABA supplements?

GOOD LUCK Tim. Did you find any information about cod liver oil off of a search engine? That's how I found this message board and decided to reply to posts about cod liver oil. They were old posts but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask other parents out there if their children has tried this regimen. There is a DAN doctor out there by the name of Woddy McGinnis and if you do a search on cod liver oil you'll see a post from him telling about cod liver oil and urecholine. Maybe you could print it out and see what your doctor says.

If I may ask...does your son get any form of ABA? You mentioned he is high functioning and that he gets secretin infusion, if I may ask, you mentioned they help...how so? How does your son like drinking the DMSA? We haven't ventured "down that road" yet. I'm sorry to ask so many questions. I am a curious type as well as a nurse so I naturally want to know results and how things work.
One more question and I PROMISE I won't ask you another one on this reply to you. You also mentioned your son is non-verbal...I imagine that's difficult for you but can he echo any sounds? Have you heard of Verbal Behavior Therapy?

PLEASE let me know what the doctor says. I'll be thinking of you and your son.

BEST WISHES : )

Sorry about not writing back sooner but I only have access to this e-mail address on the weekends. GABA stands for Gamma-aminobutyric acid and is classified as an inhibitory neurotransmitter. According to the information sheet that I received with my order, GABA does the following. GABA is suppose to have a tranquilizing affect, improve sleep, and stimulate secretion of human growth hormone. It may help to prevent anxiety and stress and is also used for individuals with epilepsy and ADD.
So far Matthew is found to allergic to wheat, yeast, milk, sesame, cranberry and tomatoes (Pizza is his favorite food). Just, recently, he was found to have a yeast infection as been deficient in a number of vitamins (riboflavin, Vit C, etc.). Beacuse of these conditions, he has been taking Cod Liver Oil, urecholine, GABA, Probiotics and Yeast control. As far as his improvements... Matthew (age 7) has began to express his opinion. If he doesn't want to do something, he will tell me NO. Even though this can be frustrating, it is wonderful that he can tell me. Breaking his routine has not been provoking tantrums from him as it has in the past. He has been teasing his sister and has begun to "tattling" on her. He also has been testing his limits with myself and my parents. For example, for breakfast, his almond milk contains alot of meds (very bitter). If he drinks all of his milk, he can have bacon which he loves. Before he would comply but now he will sneak his hand very slowly to the napkin where the bacon is, with a grin on his face. Matthew is been improving with socialization. Before his medications, he would play by himself. Now he interacts with other. He still has problems answering direct questions. I still provide appropriate answers for him to choose from but it is improving. I honestly do not which med has been helping him the most or whether it has been the combination of the elimination diet and meds. If you haven't looked into allergy testing, I would read up on it and ask your physician. I hope I gave you some helpful information. Take care.
