Autism Spectrum Markers: Expert Opinion On Biomedical Testing For ASD
You can have data without information, but you cannot have information without data.
~ Daniel Keys Moran
Dr. Kurt N. Woeller became a biomedical autism specialist many years ago in 1998. An original Defeat Autism Now! (DAN!) Referral physician, he has years of experience in researching and implementing advanced biomedical interventions based upon autism spectrum markers from laboratory testing, for individuals suffering from autism spectrum challenges. He now works as the Autism Outreach Clinical Director for Great Plains Laboratories in addition to his interesting treatment and training practice linked next.
His extensive network of exceedingly helpful educational websites, books and webinars provide parents of individuals on the autism-spectrum, as well as physicians and other healthcare providers treating autism, access to an abundance of valuable information regarding the latest biomedical intervention systems.
Ed. Note: This Dr. Woeller interview is the second in this CBJ Autism Series, and republished from our earlier CBJ interview because of its essential value to both parents and professionals on many levels.
Connections To Understand More About Autism Spectrum Markers
Professionals: To engage in direct interaction with Dr. Woeller you can subscribe to his biomedical autism training website at AutismRecoverySystem.com – an in-depth resource for both professionals and parents.
Public: You must participate in Dr. Woeller’s other recent mentoring program, The Autism Global Summit – AGS – an outstanding group of professionals who team up to discuss biomedical applications and informed, practical understandings in everyday life for those suffering from Spectrum Disorders. Thanks, Dr. Woeller for inviting me as a Guest Speaker on AGS to discuss the almost taboo subject of psychiatric medications for Executive Function and ASD issues for your interested audience at the Autism Global Summit.
My uncomplicated point at AGS: If we aim to treat the entire Spectrum, then specific medications can help – if used correctly. The reason for so much medical treatment failure with those trying to treat ASD issues with psych medications is at once simple and complex: overt denial of underlying biomedical impediments that interfere both with meds and supplements. Consider, for example, the pervasive national denial with ubiquitous IgG issues.
Because so much of ASD often does involve Executive Function why not put that subject on the table? At AGS I discussed the most pervasive problem in psychiatric diagnosis and treatment today: Cognition, Executive Function Diagnosis, and Medical Treatment including Biomedical Interventions. Dysregulation of Executive Function with Cognitive Desynchronization does exist beyond the labels and appearances of ADHD. Due to the metabolic challenges with ASD, one must understand the medical parameters and options to intervene as correctly and comprehensively as possible.
On A Personal Note
I’ve known Dr. Woeller for many years and find him to be an exceedingly helpful clinician with remarkable translation skills regarding addressing the problematic reality of hard data provided by specific autism markers and then synchronizing it with clinical observations & treatment. If you’re a clinician, I strongly recommend that you take a look at his Autism Recovery System and consider the fact that autism training takes you genuinely into the hard data of functional medicine clinical investigations that will find application almost anywhere in mind science.
Kurt is interesting, engaging, and on a determined mission to help all of us improve our assessment and treatment strategies. Our conversation here at CBJ/215 provides take-home messages for every level of autism interest.

Next CoreBrain Journal Guest
216 –Zach Bush MD, Charlottesville, VA., is one of the few triple board-certified physicians in the country – with expertise in Internal Medicine, Endocrinology and Metabolism, and Hospice/Palliative care. The breakthrough science that Dr. Bush and his colleagues have delivered offers profound new insights into human health and longevity. In 2012 he discovered a family of carbon-based redox molecules made by bacteria. He and his team subsequently demonstrated that this cellular communication network functions to compensate for glyphosate, and many other dietary, chemical, and pharmaceutical toxins that disrupt our body’s natural defense systems. This interesting discovery provided demonstrable results, surprisingly quickly in my office with a very refractory ASD client, so I called him up.
This discovery has resulted in a revolutionary class of dietary supplements, including the product, Restore. Dr. Bush points to his kids as the driving force behind his passion for change. He is fiercely motivated by a desire to have them experience a much brighter and healthier future. His education efforts provide a grassroots foundation from which we can launch change in our legislative decisions, ultimately up-shifting consumer behavior to bring about a radical change in the mega industries of big farming, big pharma, and Western Medicine at large.
Listen up to Dr. Bush’s global vision for comprehensive, data-driven change. He’s quick, smart, entertaining and right on.

- Interesting, Important and helpfulApril 28, 2018 by J.M.I from Sweden
I am listening in from Sweden, and I learn so much from Dr Parker and his interesting guests. Sadly, information like this is hard to find amongst practitioners here, and underlying factors to symptoms are of little interest. I am thankful to Dr Parker dedicating time in spreading word about helping people with psycological dysfunctions from a non conventional angle. Thank you!
- Core Brain Journal--NeuropsychologyMay 25, 2017 by Dr Terry James Gingras from United States
Just finished session 118 with neuropsychologist, Dr. Braun. Excellent content presented in a relaxed style. I'm a neuropsychoogist with a specialization In ADHD so I appreciate both Dr. Parker's and Dr. Braun's efforts demystifying the practice of neuropsychology.
- Exceptional interviews !!May 16, 2017 by MCVGRL from United States
Core Brain Journal, with Dr. Charles Parker is a must listen for a wide audience. If you are either the individual, suffering from complex personal medical/ psychological issues; or a family member, friend... please tune in often.
- Podcast 107 (Brain Health) - Very informative!April 13, 2017 by ad1978mke from United States
I especially liked this Podcast because it provided a wealth of valuable brain health research and tips in an approachable, easy-to-listen-to format. The rapport between the Guest Speaker (Dr. Braun) and Host (Dr. Parker) was evident, and I hope to hear another Podcast with this Guest Speaker!
- Top quality informationFebruary 5, 2017 by MD Ireland from Ireland
As a functional medicine doc I found this iterview stimulating, inspiring and it is full of clinically useful information
- FascinatingFebruary 1, 2017 by jinki1 from United States
If you love science and psychology, then this is for you. The brain is such a mysterious machine, and listening to experts discuss how it works is fascinating. This seems like a pick-and-choose type podcast: I'll skip the shows focusing on estrogen and alzeimer's and go for creativity, anxiety, music, and others. But what I've listened to so far is great.
- My Brain Thanks You!January 13, 2017 by B. Keenan Johnston from United States
Thanks for shedding some much needed light on issues of the brain. I recently became interested in the subject when I was listening to NPR do a segment on neuroplasticity. I could never remember the name of the author, but it helped me find this great podcast!
- Flipping Junkie ReviewDecember 23, 2016 by Danny Johnson -Flipping Junkie from United States
Awesome podcast! I really loved the bipolar episode. Wonderful insight into these issues. Keep up the good work!
- “How I Found Myself” Dean RobertsDecember 2, 2016 by Don Hutcheson from United States
I just had the pleasure of listening to Dr. Charles Parker’s latest interview with Mr. Dean Roberts on the topic: “How I Found Myself.” The thesis of this remarkable podcast is that the difference between treatment success and failure for conditions such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD and others is often the result of omitting crucial brain, biomedical, and functional neuroscience information and insights. Well done and much-needed. Wish you continuing success!
- I may be a geek...November 19, 2016 by JHHealy from United States
