MeRT Treatment for Autism Can Help Unlock Your Child’s Potential

When you’re the parent or caregiver of a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), you’ll do everything possible to help them achieve their full potential. Yet, you worry about what the future may hold for them and how they’ll cope with life’s challenges.

Research has shown that early, high-quality intervention is vital to help children diagnosed with ASD, and you may have tried many different types of therapies. Some may have worked, some not — but your child is still not responding as you’d hoped.

We understand. That’s why we’re so excited about MeRT (Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy) treatment for autism. MeRT is a non-invasive, drug-free, and gentle treatment that has shown remarkable results in children with ASD. Improvements include better communication, retention, learning, and greater independence in life.

This treatment protocol is a customized use of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) based on comprehensive diagnostic testing of your child’s brain. These advanced diagnostics, using a qEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram), pinpoint areas where the brain waves are not operating in sync with the rest of the brain.

Plus, our MeRT protocols can help children get more out of other recommended ASD therapies, such as ABA therapy. This gentle, effective treatment can help your child break through to a new level of ability — and higher quality of life.

Autism Spectrum Disorder Affects Every Child Differently

When a child is diagnosed with autism, it’s not a one-size-fits-all diagnosis. The intensity of ASD symptoms can vary from mild to severe and affect each child differently. One child may have more difficulty communicating than another, have greater sensory sensitivity, or have more intense repetitive behaviors.

While these are just a few examples, you can see that what works for one child may not work for another. That’s because every brain is unique — and that’s what makes MeRT such a breakthrough. MeRT addresses the individual nature of autism by focusing on your child’s unique brainwave activity.

First, we begin with a comprehensive analysis of their brainwave patterns to determine where they are out of sync. We create a customized treatment program to regulate brainwaves and enhance brain function.

This often results in improved communication, social skills, and independence. And that can lead to a far better quality of life for your child — and you!

Possible Symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder

  • Avoiding eye contact
  • Feeling disconnected from the world or not actively engaging with the surroundings
  • Struggling to comprehend or acknowledge when spoken to
  • Having limited verbal skills or speaking in a monotone manner
  • Showing minimal or no emotions and lacking empathy toward others
  • Exhibiting disruptive, hyperactive, or loud behavior
  • Facing challenges in understanding questions or instructions
  • Starting conversations rarely, but often repeating what others say to them
  • Showing obsession with routines or becoming fixated on specific objects or events
  • Engaging in repetitive movements like rocking back and forth, head-banging, biting, hitting, or other similar actions
  • Not displaying interest in playing with toys or interacting with other children
  • Reacting aggressively when unwilling to do something
  • Experiencing meltdowns in overwhelming or overstimulating environments
  • Having difficulty interpreting changes in tone of voice or body language

Disorders that may be treated with MeRT

MeRT can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including Autism Spectrum Disorder. We have seen some excellent results with Autism, including 66% of individuals experienced speech improvement and 70% of individuals improved eye contact.

How MeRT Works

MeRT is designed to balance brain activity. Using advanced diagnostics, scientific analysis, and personalized treatment protocols, we identify and nurture specific areas of your child’s brain.

MeRT treatment begins with a quick 10-minute brainwave recording. This is the qEEG, coupled with an electrocardiogram (ECG), to measure your brainwave frequencies, heart rate, and the relationship between the brain and heart.

Next, your clinician re-processes the data via a database with more than 30,000 other brainwave recordings. This is how your unique brain image is translated into a report that provides insight via comparison and matching. At this point, it can be determined if some areas of your brain are not functioning as they should. When this happens, a custom treatment plan is created. The third step is personalized brainwave stimulation. Your unique protocol is based on your brainwave recordings and is delivered via MeRT. Everyone’s protocol may vary, but MeRT sessions can occur as often as daily. Typically, 30-35 minute sessions five days per week for 4-6 weeks is the most common protocol.

After ten sessions are complete, your clinician performs a brainwave recording re-assessment to assess for positive changes in brain activity and for any updates to the treatment protocol. A third 10-minute brainwave recording session will be required after completing four weeks of therapy to again reassess for positive changes in brain activity. Combined with questionnaires and assessments, we will work together to gauge the effectiveness of the treatment and determine if additional treatment sessions are needed.

“We’ve seen some promising results in autism.”

“MeRT was engineered to be a brain optimization technology where we’re trying to increase the coherence, [so] different areas of the brain can communicate with each other and improve the metabolic efficiency of the brain. With that in mind, we see some improvements across a number of different dimensions. We’ve seen some improvements and some promising results in autism.”

A Father Tells His MeRT Story

In the third week, something happened. The family was driving around sightseeing when they realized that they were getting lost in the California desert. Mary and Frank began to argue, and right in the midst of it, the moment they had waited six years for finally came. “I remember he said a seven-word sentence basically to the effect of ‘I want you two to stop fighting.’ And it shocked me so much that I almost stopped breathing,” Frank recounts. “I looked at my wife and said ‘Do you realize what just happened? He just said a seven-word sentence.’ I had tears in my eyes, and I was happy at the same time. He was so upset that it pushed these words through.”

From there, Frankie’s progress snowballed. They returned home after only a month, but the difference between the child who arrived in California and the one who left was striking. They had taken a video of Frankie on the plane when they started the journey, “and he’s just making baby babble,” Frank says.

“We have another video of him on the plane coming back. And he looks out the window and says, ‘Goodbye California, see you soon.’ This was a nonverbal kid, 30 days earlier. And his feet are flat on the ground.”

Doctors said Frankie would continue to improve even without regular MeRT albeit a bit slower. Today, he is 11 years old, verbal, and attends a public school. He tells Frank stories about times when he wanted to speak but couldn’t.
