Glycine is an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, especially in the spinal cord, brainstem, and retina. When glycine receptors are activated, chloride enters the neuron via ionotropic receptors, causing an Inhibitory postsynaptic potential (IPSP).
An inhibitory postsynaptic potential (IPSP) is a synaptic potential that decreases the chance that a future action potential will occur in a postsynaptic neuron or α-motoneuron.
This is particularly pertinent to the autism community primarily because this can explain the different levels of diagnoses evident within the autism spectrum (i.e. classical autism, regressive autism, PDD-NOS, Aspergers, ADHD etc.). There seems to be many different lines of thinking within the scientific community as to how cells "uptake" the substances that are needed. The confusion primarily lies within the prevalent belief that most substances bind to cells and when needed, these cells create a "port" with which to gain the intracellular communication necessary. This group found that various mechanisms are utilized by cells to absorb the necessary substances needed, to include: osmosis, diffusion, phagocytosis, pinocytosis, pumps and conventional absorption. The hypothesis is that something environmental is creating a situation whereby these cells are unable to absorb substances or communicate in the way that they need to, thusly manifesting at times as a nuerodevelopmental disorder or disease. Now what is truly amazing is the conclusion that has been reached as to why and how this is happening. You see; this neutral group with no ties to the pharmaceutical or mainstream medical industries has determined that vaccines and their ingredients are to blame. With the help of notable researchers and doctors that are known within the autism community, this study has resulted in some damning results. With the help of research from; Dr. Andrew Wakefield, Dr. Russell Blaylock, Dr. Martha Herbert and others, this group of non conflicted researchers have stumbled upon the proof to reinforce what the autism community has been talking about for quite some time! Vaccines cause autism!
MMR is not the only vaccine containing this gelatin. Here are the vaccines that contain this gelatin and the amount in each:
DTaP 0.0015 mg
Influenza 0.025 mg
Measles 14.5 mg
Rubella 14.5 mg
MMR II 14.5 mg
Varicella 12.5 mg
Shingles 15.58 mg
Rabies < 12 mg
At the Hannah More School in Reisterstown, students are shaking, tapping, and pounding their way to better health. The conditions vary from dyslexia, to attention deficit disorder, to autism, but in this class there's only one form of therapy.
Rhythmic drumming induces altered states, which have a wide range of therapeutic applications. A recent study by Barry Quinn, Ph.D. demonstrates that even a brief drumming session can double alpha brain wave activity, dramatically reducing stress.
Music educator Ed Mikenas finds that drumming provides “an authentic experience of unity and physiological synchronicity. If we put people together who are out of sync with themselves (i.e., diseased, addicted) and help them experience the phenomenon of entrainment, it is possible for them to feel with and through others what it is like to be synchronous in a state of preverbal connectedness.” 6
The fact that Elvin was on stage at all from April 21 to 26, an oxygen tank by his side, constituted such a victory of the human spirit that grown folks were in tears at almost every table in the club. What Elvin was trying to convey was infinitely more powerful than his ability or inability to say it, but still each song, each brushstroke, was electric with the communal intensity of a crowd willing a hero forward, and a hero drawing strength from their love.
The Table Drum is used successfully in all kinds of therapy (music, linguistic, psychic therapy) and rhythmical-musical education. Its strong and deep vibrations are felt more than heard, especially in the lower parts of the body.
The new RTF 60 is an interesting and low-priced alternative to the large Table Drum. It is especially well-suited for use in therapeutic treatment programmes, early musical education, in kindergartens and nursery schools, as well as
for music lessons at the primary school level.

There have been some doctors aying for a long time that the huge increase in instances of childhood autism are due to the vaccines, but have always been shouted down.
One interesting article I saw a couple of years ago mentioned two examples of controlled groups who show little or no instances of autism. One group were from a doctors practice that was not giving the vaccines, the other was from the Amish community, who shun the vaccines others are given.
The evidence certainly looked compelling but, as has been said before, the mighty dollar trumps eveything.
