ONE in four children or adults with autism may show aggressive behavior such as hitting others, destroying property or throwing temper tantrums.

On moments of anger and frustration, persons with autism sometimes lash out at their caregivers or family members who take care of them. In some cases, persons with autism are even aggressive to themselves.

Because of this, some parents worry about their safety and that of their child with autism and/or his/her siblings.

Studies though haven’t found a reason to even consider that autism may lead to intentional violent behavior. Doctors, on the other hand, suggest that caregivers and/or families should instead look for ways to ease aggression in individuals with the disorder; among them: alleviating problems with sleep, attention and anger rumination.

Last week, Dr. Susan Barlin, a successful real estate executive and now a networking executive, presented a segment of her television show in the Philippines wherein a male adolescent with autism was initially shown with aggressive behavior.

The parents of the teenager with the disorder were distraught. The mother was even crying during the interview.

However, after the teenager was given a regular serving of ImuRegen, supposedly a food supplement in capsule or liquid form, the aggressive behavior just vanished.

To the delight of the parents, their son showed cheerful and obedient attitude, not only towards them, but as well as to every one else who interact with him daily.

Apparently, Barlin said, ImuRegen has helped the teenager because it has provided nutrients to support healthy sleep patterns and increases a person’s energy level.

It has essential amino acids that enhances mental and physical health. It also has forms of oligopeptides and peptides (proteins) that include lipids and nucleoproteins,” Barlin told the Filipino American crowd who attended the presentation at the Double Tree Hotel in Carson City.

Our product increases the body’s immunity and affect cellular regeneration, thus it helps a lot in the rebuilding of body tissues and rejuvenating the basic organs of our bodies,” Barlin explained.

At the end of her talk, Barlin, CEO of Forever Healthy Products, said that the products that she was endorsed can only be had through multi-level marketing, otherwise known as networking.

I know the stigma that goes with networking companies nowadays. I just want to drive home the fact, that unlike other businesses that thrived on duping people into investing and then scooting away with their money, Forever Healthy is a legitimate company with legitimate products that really help promote health,” Barlin said.

This is not a get-rich-quick scheme.”
