The International Conference of Biomedical Research and Treatment for Autism

12-14 April, 2019

Grand Hotel Napoca, Romania

Find out which biomedical interventions are used successfully in treating autism and help your child to thrive!


If in the ’70s autism was almost unknown, over the last 10 years there has been a concerning high number of cases of autism. In the past 2 years, CDC statistics show an alarming increase of 15% in the US, where currently 1 in 59 children are diagnosed with autism. In Romania, 1 out of 51 children is currently diagnosed with autism. And the numbers are rising, worldwide. The darkest estimates warn that by 2025 in the US 1 in 2 children will suffer from autism. 

At this point we must immediately act and understand beyond these statistics the cause of this phenomenon. And we must realize that these children suffer from biological causes that can be treated.

This 3-day conference presents how the implementation of an integrative approach to autism can ease common medical conditions and behavioural symptoms in children and adults with autistic spectrum disorders. 

All presentations are supported by top professionals to provide participants with essential and immediate steps for a scientific-based approach. 

The first edition of this conference took place in March 2018 and we propose that every year, one week before the Feast of Easter, we will hold a new edition, also in Cluj-Napoca.

Raun K. Kaufman-Diagnosed with severe autism in 1975, his parents were advised to institutionalize him. Instead, they made the opposite: they entered his world, understood him, accepted and loved him unconditionally.

In his book “Autism Breakthrough: The Groundbreaking Method That Has Helped Families All Over The World” he wrote: “And as my parents really began to understand my world while communicating to me in more than a thousand ways, many times, that I was safe, that I was loved, that I was accepted, that something amazing happened, a connection began to form, slowly, carefully, I began to look behind the veil of my special world. began to join my world. “

He returned to Italy as Professor of Molecular Biology at the University of Firenze until his retirement in 2014. He moved to Arizona in 2015.

Together with his wife Dr. Stefania Pacini, he is the inventor of the probiotic yogurt “Bravo”, and its derivatives. Marco Ruggiero has invented “Rerum”, a powerful, non-protein, Macrophage Activating Factor (MAF) and has developed the Ruggiero-Klinghardt Protocol. In 2017, Marco Ruggiero developed a method to enhance efficacy of DNA vaccines and envisaged the concepts of relativistic time dilation and biological quantum entanglement as they relate to cancer, autism and chronic conditions.

According to a paper of his publishes in 2017, “as we slow down the passing of time at the level of DNA, everything about medicine will be revolutionized. Cells will have time to repair damages to the genome and the epigenome, diseases will be cured from the inside before they manifest themselves, and humans will be entitled to live without aging” (J Neurol Stroke, 2017 7(7): 00263. DOI: 10.15406/jnsk.2017.07.00263).

Miguel Damas, MD., Clinical director of Nordic Clinic by Cristina Sales, in Porto has a unique background. Besides being a conventionally trained medical doctor, he was educated in the principles of Functional Medicine from early childhood, by his mother Cristina Sales, MD., who could claim to have been the Godmother of Functional Medicine in Portugal. He was also one of the first European doctors to be trained by Professor Cícero Coimbra on the Coimbra Protocol and how vitamin D can be used to treat autoimmune conditions. Dr Damas is very knowledgeable on the effects vitamin D has in the brain and how it can help children with autism.

Mr. Adrian Vornicu is a specialist in Vincent Bioelectronics (France), Electromagnetic Biocompatibility and Micronutrition.

Dr. Feldrihan Vasile is Immunologist, specialized in classical medicine (immunology-allergology and laboratory medicine) as well as in biological, integrative medicine, having as sole purpose the identification of disorders and imbalances within the body.

   His approach to patients includes diagnosis and personalized therapy for various pathologies with an immuno-pathogenic substrate such as various forms of allergies, autoimmune diseases, immunodeficiency, infections or various other immune imbalances.

   Acquiring knowledge from both medical systems, I will always try to integrate the latest methods into medical practice in order to provide each patient with the most appropriate treatment based on the eradication of the cause and not the suppression of the symptoms.

   In the THC clinic, this approach is contrived by working with dedicated specialists and providing each patient with a personalized therapeutic support during targeted, easy-to-use, tolerated, non-adverse medical procedures that have an impact on the entire body and are effective on long term.
