Articles by Mark Hyman, MD

Dr. Mark Hyman has many articles on the relationship between autism and toxins, mainly mercury. He has a detox process that he recommends to help bring your or your child’s body back to wellness.

A toxic environment triggers certain genes in people susceptible to this condition. And research supports this position.”
