Relevance of BH4 NOS Ammonia and Neurotransmitters in Prevention and Recovery of ASD/PANS through pathway planning and immune shifting.
Looking more closely at specific mutations and BH4 cycle relevant to causation of autism spectrum and related disorders. BH4 is necessary for neurotransmitter formation and for working across NOS in clearing ammonia and towards Mitochondria for health. Instead, we often have mast cell activation and Th2 locked im- munity and Th17 rising autoimmunity, with inflammation and overproduction of antibodies, and are lacking Th1 activation of macrophages to kill pathogens. The cycle can keep some individuals trapped in ASD/PANS but research and anecdotal evidence are showing support of specific mutations, and immune shifting, may be able to break the cycle and get individuals out of ASD/PANS/Lyme/mold/asthma altogether.
