Father Believes Controversial Treatments for Autism Work


One father turns to treatments like stem cell treatment to help his son with autism:

"How far would you go to find a cure for your child's illness? A local family will travel to Panama this year for a controversial treatment that they swear has changed their 10 year old's life. Daniel Faiella has been unfailingly dedicated to treating his son's autism. But some of his tactics have resulted in alienation from autistic support groups and even death threats. Today, Matthew Faiella is an energetic 10 year old boy. "When I was younger, I played with toys. I watched video games, I go on the computer." But years ago, Matthew couldn't have told you that. Matthew was diagnosed with autism at 18 months.His doctors thought he would eventually end up in an institution. Today, Matthew dreams of being a pediatrician. The Faiellas tried traditional methods including the gold standard, ABA, or applied behavior analysis therapy for treating autism. "It didn't really work for Matthew. It gave him two word sentences but that's where it stopped." his father Daniel tells us. About 5 years ago, Daniel heard about a treatment involving a hyperbaric chamber. "The pressure pushes oxygen to blood plasma where oxygen doesn't usually go." After trying it in a local doctor's office, he bought his own. "Within the first week he started to say full sentences." Three years ago, Daniel met a family who suggested stem cell transplants. "I said well, I'm against that. It's against my religous beliefs. She said no, it's adult stem cells and the Catholic church actually approves of it." Matthew will complete his 5th stem cell treatment in Panama in 2011."
