Down syndrome or trisomy 21 is the most frequent genetic cause of mild to moderate mental retardation and associated medical problems and occurs in one out of 800 live births, in all races and economic groups. Down syndrome is a chromosomal disorder caused by an error in cell division, when a fertilised ovum , which will develop into the foetus , contains extra material from chromosome number 21 (cf. Genetic Definitions for further detail on this process). Three genetic variations can cause Down syndrome:
  • In most cases, approximately 92% of the time, Down syndrome is caused by the presence of an extra chromosome 21 in all cells of the individual. In such cases, the extra chromosome originates in the development of either the egg or the sperm. This condition, in which three copies of chromosome 21 are present in all cells of the individual, is called trisomy 21 In approximately 2-4% of cases, Down syndrome is due to

122. Epilepsy-Down Syndrome Foundation
Research into the dual diagnoses of down syndrome and epilepsy. Emphasizes nutritional and nonmedical interventions.
Down Syndrome-Epilepsy Foundation
A better vision The Down Syndrome-Epilepsy Foundation (DSEF) is a part of the non-profit Center for Natural Health Research and is devoted to looking into the best, natural, methods to help those who have both Down syndrome (trisomy 21) and various forms of epilepsy (including Lennox-Gastaut syndrome). These methods include clinical nutrition, real naturopathy, manipulative techniques, exercise, and other natural methods intended to improve the quality of life for those with Down syndrome who also suffer with seizures. The Down Syndrome-Epilepsy Foundation is directed up by Robert J. Thiel, Ph.D., N.H.D. . He is not a medical doctor. He possesses a doctorate (Ph.D.) in nutrition science and a doctorate in natural health (N.H.D.). Thiel believes that DSEF has a better vision for those with both disorders. Why? Because he believes that natural is better. Because he believes that many health professionals and therapists have expectations for the disabled that are too low. Because he believes combining nutrition, exercise, and parental motivation results in better outcomes. Because he believes that science and common-sense show that the combination of natural interventions is the most logical to pursue. Because he has met with many of the so-called experts and researchers in this field and found many of their approaches lacking. He does not believe that he, nor DSEF, have all the answers, but does believe that in many respects, DSEF is at the forefront for practical research to benefit those with both Down syndrome and epilepsy.

Articles On Down Syndrome
In over 25 years of work with families and children, the Down syndrome population has been of special interest to me. Our first parent programs, that built the ECO programs in the 1970s, began with exciting successes with preschoolers with Down syndrome. Within the last five years, I have followed up several of our children with Down syndrome, sadly to find that many of them had also become socially isolated and communicated a lot less than the knowledge they had. I was very concerned. Consequently, I now work with groups of parents of infants with Down syndrome in order to impress on them the absolute importance of strongly socializing these children and not expecting it will happen automatically. Below, Barbara Mitchell describes our five-year relationship with her son, Mark. Please read her story carefully and several times as she has identified many important processes needed to help a child with Down syndrome become as engaging, creative, humorous and adaptable as Mark has become. It is a powerful example of how parents can help a child with delays become a responsive, social, and communicative partner.

What your doctor won't tell you about Down Syndrome... .... because he probably doesn't know! Learn more about nutritional therapies and other modern innovations in the treatment of Down Syndrome at the Trisomy 21 Conference- Modern Perspectives in Down Syndrome , New Orleans, September 13-14, 2003. Thirty years ago the advice by the mainstream medical community to new parents was to put the child in an institution. Mainstream treatments have come far in the past thirty years. Back then a few doctors and parents found a better way, and they led the way for others. It is the same today. At this conference you will meet scientists and researchers who are showing a better way than what the mainstream today offers for people with Down Syndrome. You will meet parents of children who are taking advantage these interventions. Ruth Kauk , the 15-year-old sister of Mary Kauk who has Down Syndrome, built this web site for the Einstein-Syndrome list. Ruth's own web site is
