Quack Exposed: Spectrum Awakening


What is Spectrum Awakening 

Spectrum Awakening is an online company that sells supplements to parents of neurodivergent children. They are supported by TACA and Autism Hope Alliance. They preach detoxification to treat autism. This company was created by biomedical doctors. 

It was founded by Jared Skowron. He has been working with autistic children and children with ADHD for over 15 years. He specializes in using natural, non pharmaceutical therapies to "support healthy neurological development."He claims that these treatments support language development, calm behavior, normal sensory function, regular sleep patterns, emotional stability and improved memory. 

He also wrote the book "100 Natural Remedies for Your Child."


"At Spectrum Awakening, we create natural nutritional supplements that are specially designed to support normal behavior, focus/attention, moods, language, development, and overall well being for children with Autism and ADHD. Our creations are different from products you typically find at other supplement stores; we developed our natural nutritional supplements through years of careful research to specifically support the needs of children with Autism and ADHD. We use unique dosages and combinations that work synergistically with each other to produce the right results. More than other natural supplements, ours have been designed by physicians that use these products successfully with their kids and families.

"Our mission is to harmonize the developmental and emotional health of children. We strongly believe that helping kids helps the whole family, and we offer natural solutions that support nutritional, mental, and emotional health. We have three core values that bring our mission to life: family, love, and potential. These values have driven the innovation and research needed to create our revolutionary products, and they continue to drive us to create an excellent experience for our customers."

Not only do they sell these supplements, they offer medical visits with a naturopath at Pediatric and Family Center for Natural Medicine, where Jared Skown practices. 

The Products:

These products include a very large amount of supplements. Some of these supplements are more than 40 times what the body is meant to have. The different ingredients have been linked so the side effects of overdose can be seen. 

They also offer laboratory tests for substances that support quack theories like heavy metals. The laboratory is not one that has a reputation for being accurate. If the samples are taken at home, they can also become contaminated and skew the results. 

These products are also expensive. They are conning parents out of money that could go towards therapy and therapeutic supplies for their children.

"Power & Focus is NEW and IMPROVED for 2020! Now containing an 80%/20% ratio of Folinic Acid/Methyl-Folate, an 80%/20% ratio of Hydroxy-B12/Methyl-B12, and Lithium Orotate 5mg. Better than before. Support normal speech and behavior with Power & Focus!"

Calm & Cool ($49.95)

"Hyperactive behavior, ADHD, lack of focus, and autism are becoming more and more common in our houses and schools. Kids are impulsive, distracted, seemingly filled with too much energy, and have sleep problems.

This sweet tasting powder can be mixed into any drink or food to support a normal relaxed and calm mood.

The active ingredients: magnesium, inositol, and amino acids combine to maintain a relaxed nervous system to nourish a normal mood and normal sleep patterns."

Super Serotonin Support ($42.95)

"Children with Autism or ADHD can have low levels of serotonin. Vitamins for serotonin and 5-htp support healthy levels of this brain chemical. Serotonin is an essential brain chemical that makes us feel happy, sleep well, and develop normal language skills. Our great tasting cherry-flavored chewable provides the amino acids necessary for the brain to produce normal levels of serotonin. This, in turn, supports normal mood, sleep, melatonin levels, and language development."

Vitamin B6 4 mg. 200% of daily recommended value
L-Glycine 125 mg. There is no daily recommended value
5 Hydroxy Troptophan. There is no daily recommended value

Attention on the Double ($44.95)

"Need help with focus, concentration, or ADHD? Attention On The Double is a natural amino acid supplement that supports normal production of dopamine. This brain chemical acts as a brain stimulant and helps a child focus, concentrate, and feel motivated. Healthy dopamine levels are associated with good focus, concentration, and our reward system. Without dopamine feeding the brain, people tend to feel anxious and seek input from other sources.

Some children are constantly seeking input. Our ‘sensory-seekers’, those who jump around from couch to couch, kids who love video games and electronics, are attempting to stimulate themselves when they lack their own chemical stimulus of dopamine."

Ingredients:

Vitamin C 5 mg 8% of daily recommended value

Iron 2.5mg, 14% of daily recommended value

L-tyrosine, 500 mg, there is no daily recommended value

Support normal language, behavior, development, and motor skills by giving your child the vitamins they need.

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, and a sweet tasting powder that can be mixed into food and drink."

B-Lucious for MTHFR ($59.95)

"Support your MTHFR with B-Licious. MTHFR genetics can affect 50% of people, and even higher numbers in those with autism and ADHD. Nourish your healthy MTHFR function with methylated-B vitamins, including methyl-folate (5-MTHF) and methyl-cobalmin (mB12).

Brain chemicals, such as serotonin, melatonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine need activated folate and Vitamin B12 to be produced. These vitamins need to be methylated using the MTHFR gene to function in the brain. Without methylated folate and Vitamin B12, you may experience change in mood, focus, behavior, and a change in development.

Luckily, the answer is easy! Our B-Licious for MTHFR is a great tasting cherry chewable tablet that provides bioactive folate (in the form 5-MTHF or methylfolate) and bioactive Vitamin B12 (in the form of Methyl-Cobalamin).

Support normal brain chemical levels, healthy development, language, and mood with something that’s B-Licious!"

Peace of Lithium ($44.95)

"Peace of Lithium is a natural supplement that supports healthy, calm behavior for children. Usually, when you hear the term lithium, you think of the pharmaceutical. Lithium Orotate is actually a mineral. This mineral, similar to calcium and magnesium, is essential for the healthy functioning of the body.

Many children are hyper due to the levels of adrenaline in their brain. Does your child fit the term ‘Fight or Flight’? Our brain naturally removes adrenaline using an enzyme called MAO. The mineral form of lithium supports normal MAO activity and normal removal of adrenaline from the brain."

Detox

Shot Support ($59.95)

*Side note: Every drug has side effects. The vaccine reactions are rare. Aluminum has been used in vaccines as an adjutant, a component that boosts immune response to vaccine antigens.  This has been scientifically disproven. In the active ingredients, aluminum is listed. They think they are going to get rid of aluminum and mercury by introducing aluminum? If it does not make sense, its not true. 

"There is a warning on the package: Claims based on traditional homeopathic practice, not accepted medical evidence. Not FDA evaluated"

"Vaccines have side-effects. Homeopathic supplements for vaccine reactions can help support the body's healing and recovery from them. Detoxifying mercury and aluminum is essential for good development and health. Children with autism and ADHD can have high levels of mercury and aluminum and can be supported with detox supplements.

For example, review this link of side effects of the MMR vaccine from the FDA.
https://www.fda.gov/media/75191/download

Also, look at our picture from the CDC website. They list severe side effects of the MMR vaccine of seizures and brain damage.

Our opinion is that some of the side effects are triggered by the inactive ingredients, especially neurotoxic substances, such as aluminum and mercury (mercury, also known as thimerosal, has been removed from many vaccines, it is still in the flu shot).

These neurotoxic heavy metals cause damage in the body until they are removed."

Ingredients (12.5% each):

Alumina- another name for aluminum oxide

Aluminum Metallicum- liquid aluminum

Arnica- east asian flower

Calcarea Caustica

Mercurius solublilis

Silicea

Detox Mineral Replacement ($49.95)

"Minerals are an essential part of our nutrition. Many kids don't get their suggested intake of vegetables everyday, and need nutritional supplementation to maintain good health. 

Certain detox programs also need to supplement minerals which may be removed during the detox process.

Detox Mineral Replacement is a great tasting powder to provide your body with essential minerals that support overall health."

It is the same proprietary blend for both. 

This is a proprietary blend:

Yeast/Mold Binder- Mold Detoxification Protocol Step 3 ($49.95)

Yeast/Mold Biofilm- Mold Detoxification Protocol Step 1 ($59.95)

"What do you do with a stain on your clothes? What do we do with a spill on our carpet? What does our body do with the foods we eat?

Removing things, whether it’s a stain on our clothes, our carpets, or digesting our food into microscopic pieces, start with dissolving them with enzymes. Enzymes are a unique substances that will take big things and dissolve them into tinier things. The word ‘enzyme’ comes from the Greek word ‘Leavened’. Think of bread rising. The enzymes used in cooking bread convert sugar into air, causing our bread to inflate."

Afternoon Delight ($44.95)

"Eventually, it’s time to enjoy life. Sometimes the stress of life, the stress of parenting, work, family, etc, can suck away our desire for physical enjoyment. Especially as we age, or with excess stress, testosterone levels can decrease. (Both men and women have testosterone, it’s not just a guy thing.) With that decreasing testosterone levels, often our libido decreases. Support a normal testosterone level with Afternoon Delight!"

Ingredients:
Standardized eurycoma 100mg, no recommended daily value 

Easy- PEEsy ($59.95)

"Things get bigger as we get older, and for men, that means our prostate. As our prostate swells, it begins to block our urine flow from the bladder to the toilet. This leads to peeing multiple times during the night, BPH, and incomplete voiding of all the urine that’s waiting to get out."

"Diabetes and hypoglycemia affect many people. Did you know a typical can of soda has 10 teaspoons of sugar? The processed foods in our society, the restaurant foods, the fast foods, are so flooded with sugar and corn syrup, that it would shock you how many calories we consume that is just sugar. (They’re called empty calories because they provide no other nutrition.)

While sugar gives us an immediate boost of energy, our body craves more nutrition, and we end up eating more sugar, and even more calories all day long. Changing your diet can new difficult! We have habits, we need to grab food on the go, and prepping meals takes many hours."

Let it Grow ($44.95)

"The other day someone told me, “Your gray hair really suits you!” That made me stop for a minute, look in the mirror, and realize… maybe I don’t look like I used to in my 20’s. While true beauty is who we are as a person, and what we contribute to our family and society, it’s also nice to look good on the outside, as well as being good on the inside. Often, due to stress and a poor diet, we lack the nutrients that our body uses to maintain healthy skin, hair, and nails. Support your body’s outside with Let It Grow!

Ingredient:

Pixie Dust ($59.95)

"Sweet, sweet, slumber. So often stolen from us by children, pets, stress, or a snoring spouse. While many people have problems falling asleep, many have problems staying asleep. Melatonin is often used to help you fall asleep, but that normally wears off in 4 hours, and you’re awake again in the middle of the night worrying about things or watching infomercial shows again."

Ingredients:
Proprietary blend of magnolia officinalis bark, pure L-Theanine and Phellodendron amurense bark. 

Special De-Liver-Y ($39.95)

Ingredients:

Vibrant Vision ($49.95)

"The day I turned 40, I feel like my vision jumped off a cliff. I needed to wear cheaters for reading vitamin labels, and I could barely read my computer.

Gut Support

These quacks are obsessed with the autistic gut. 

"“You are what you eat,” they always say. However, if your food isn’t digested or absorbed properly, then the “you” part could be in trouble. Our gut health can be a huge factor in our overall health and well being. Issues with digestion and with your gastrointestinal (GI) tract can have profound effects on energy, mental clarity, mood, and sensory functioning.


It’s well known that children with autism often suffer from gut health issues that not only cause physical discomfort but also can exacerbate or even the cause of developmental and behavioral problems. Children with autism often have sensitivities or allergies to common foods, such as dairy products and gluten. While removing these items from your child’s diet can help see improvement, children with autism often have natural deficiencies in normally occurring chemicals and microorganisms that lead to digestive and GI problems.


Spectrum Awakening has you and your child’s gut health covered, with natural supplements that support digestive efficiency, gastrointestinal health, microbiome diversity and the absorption of essential nutrients. Our products are formulated to comprehensive and effective, with safe, specialized doses not commonly found over the counter."


Gut Rest 2 ($64.95)

"Probiotics are essential for healthy digestion, poop, and immune system. Problems with constipation or diarrhea or digestion? Probiotics support a normal digestive tract!

Git Reset 2 has 8 strains of probiotics and a prebiotic. 

Gut Reset 2 is the natural probiotic support that can help children with ASD who experience discomfort due to Gastrointestinal (G.I.) problems. While many families use probiotics for their children, dose matters. A typical capsule of probiotics may contain 1 or 5 billion organisms, but that’s only a drop in the bucket compared to the trillions of organisms in our microbiome and intestines. Imagine licking an aspirin to help a headache, it’s not going to do much good.

Did you know we have 10 times the number of bacteria in our body as we do cells in our body? This is why, dose matters. Our Gut Reset 2 product has 60 billion probiotic organisms per serving. That’s like giving a bottle of probiotics a day! (most probiotics are 1-5 billion per serving). Now that is a dose that will change something. If you want to make a change in your child’s GI health, make it big."

PREbiotic Supreme ($44.95)

"We all know probiotics are the good bacteria in our gut. In fact, we have ten times as many of those as we do cells in our body. These probiotics need food too! Feed them sugar and they get angry and create inflammation. Feed them fiber and they are happy and help maintain normal gut health.

Similar to how certain people live where it's warm in the winter, and live where it's cool in the summer, probiotics live where they get the food they want. Probiotics that feed on simple sugars and carbs create a lot of gut inflammation. Probiotics that feed on fiber create healing chemicals for our intestines, known as Short Chain Fatty Acids (SCFA).

The more fiber we eat, the better our probiotic status and intestinal health. Certain types of fiber are better than others. PREbiotic Supreme contains the best two fibers for our gut, inulin, and arabinogalactan."

Hormones

Temper Tamer ($49.95)

This is a supplement for meltdowns. Instead of doing the right thing by altering the environment and eliminating triggers, they say to add yet another supplement. 

"Does your child have excessive temper tantrums or transitional anxiety? Vitamins for temper support normal levels of cortisol. Many of us have heard about our ‘stress hormone’ called cortisol. This hormone is often altered in our children. We can tell because they can’t handle any type of stress. Now, stress for a child may be doing a therapy they don’t want to do, or stopping the TV or their electronics. It may be school or social situations or transitions. If any of these puts your child into ‘Fight or Flight’ mode, try our Temper Tamer.

Supporting normal levels of your stress hormone, cortisol, will let you have a healthy stress response. No more hour long temper tantrums! Imagine an easy transition from one activity to another. Sound impossible? It isn’t, with Temper Tamer."

Io-Dine-Omyte ($29.95)

"Thyroid function is essential for normal development. Thyroid levels are often overlooked in children; however, they are a huge component in maintaining a healthy mood and energy level. Hypothyroid, hyperthyroid, or low iodine levels can be problems with thyroid hormone function. While many children’s mood can be supported naturally with supplements to maintain normal cortisol levels (see Temper Tamer & Sanity Saver), some children also need natural thyroid support.

Io-Dine-Omyte is an all-natural thyroid hormone support supplement. Containing the essential nutrients to support healthy thyroid function, Io-Dine-Omyte helps your thyroid function normally!

Iodine is the most important mineral for the thyroid, and Iodized salt is a great dietary source of Iodine. However, many people are now using sea salt, and most sea salts do NOT contain Iodine! Your body needs Iodine for normal thyroid function. Each capsule of Io-Dine-Omyte has a healthy dose of 3mg of Iodine to help your thyroid."
