EXCERPTS FROM ARTICLE BY GLOBAL HEALTH TRAX
Vista, Calif.; July 14, 2008 – Actress and best-selling author Jenny McCarthy has established herself as a tireless crusader in the search for a cure for autism and advocate for nutritional regimens to help manage the disease.
McCarthy incorporated the Global Health Trax™ (GHT) flagship specialty probiotic product, ThreeLac™, into her autistic son’s nutritional regimen and shared her experience in her recently published book Louder than Words: A Mother’s Journey in Healing Autism. ThreeLac™ probiotic is a fungal and yeast-recovery/reduction product providing selected beneficial microflora to the intestinal tract, and it is distributed exclusively through Global Health Trax. Many parents of autistic children have adopted nutritional therapies and diet changes including what is known as a gluten-free, casein-free (GFCF) diet which restricts wheat and milk products.
In 2002 McCarthy gave birth to Evan who as an infant was full of life, making eye contact and smiling, but at age two Evan began having seizures. After countless doctors’ visits, a neurologist gave Jenny what she described as a devastating diagnosis; Evan had autism.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, one in every 150 children born in the United States has autism and it is estimated approximately one million in the U.S. have this disorder. Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability in the U.S. today.
With no known cure to this disease, McCarthy embarked on a mission to improve her son’s life and health. Her unwavering determination and refusal to settle for a “no cure” diagnosis prompted her to do extensive research that led her to GHT ThreeLac probiotic. On page 200 of her book, McCarthy writes, “This is the stuff that really made Evan excrete yeast and start talking more.”
Global Health Trax (GHT) supports the autism community’s efforts to raise awareness and advance investigation of the disease’s causes.
“We admire and praise the autism community and Jenny McCarthy for their inspiring passion and commitment to find help for this heart-breaking disorder,” said Global Health Trax President & CEO Tom Dixson, Co-Founder and former CEO of Petco. “Global Health Trax is proud to know that so many families including Jenny’s have chosen GHT nutraceuticals including ThreeLac for their nutritional regimen, and we are honored to help underwrite the fundraising and awareness campaigns of Generation Rescue.”
