April is Autism Awareness Month: How Superbrain Yoga® Can Help by Dena Ventrudo

1 out of every 100 children born are diagnosed with Autism. That means that out of the 4 million children born in the U.S. every year, approximately 40,000 will eventually be diagnosed with an Autism spectrum disorder. This dramatic rise in Autism has given way to its own month of awareness in April.

What is Autism?

Autism AwarenessAccording to www.ninds.nih.gov, “Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a range of complex neurodevelopment disorders, characterized by social impairments, communication difficulties, and restricted, repetitive, and stereotyped patterns of behavior. Autistic disorder, sometimes called autism or classical ASD, is the most severe form of ASD, while other conditions along the spectrum include a milder form known as Asperger syndrome, the rare condition called Rett syndrome, and childhood disintegrative disorder and pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified (usually referred to as PDD-NOS). Although ASD varies significantly in character and severity, it occurs in all ethnic and socioeconomic groups and affects every age group. Experts estimate that three to six children out of every 1,000 will have ASD. Males are four times more likely to have ASD than females.”

While therapy and medications for things like anxiety are perscribed to treat Autism, there is no cure.

However, there has been progress made in leaps and bounds by a technique called Superbrain Yoga.


Superbrain Yoga® by Master Choa Kok Sui“Superbrain Yoga® is a simple technique to energize and recharge the brain. It is based on the principles of subtle energy and ear acupuncture. This powerful technique is explained in Master Choa Kok Sui’s latest book Superbrain Yoga®.

Pilot studies on the effects of Superbrain Yoga® on school children include children with disabilities such as ADHD/ADD, developmental and cognitive delays, Down syndrome and specific learning disabilities. Children studied showed significant increase in academic and behavioral performance, greater class participation and improved social skills. In one study, the result of an electroencephalograph showed increased amplitude in the parieto-occipital region of the brain following the Superbrain Yoga®. This indicates increased brain electrical activity following the exercise. More studies on the effects of Superbrain Yoga® are being conducted.”

Pranic healer, Master Stephen Co, has a daughter who was diagnosed with austism. His teacher, Master Choa Kok Sui, began Superbrain Yoga sessions with her when she was a toddler. The improvement was immediate. Master Co continued practicing Superbrain Yoga with her as she grew, and her Austism symptoms began to disappear. It may sound like an impossible miracle, but you can hear Master Stephen Co discuss it in our most recent podcast with him: Latest Merlian News Podcast With Master Stephen Co.
