PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - June 16, 2014) - Few people have more insight about helping individuals with autism than David Humphrey, CEO and president of Kirkman Group, Inc. His company, Kirkman®, was the first and the premier nutritional supplement company for individuals with special dietary and environmental sensitivities.
If you would like to "hangout" with Humphrey, he will be sharing his observations during a Google+ Hangout at 11 am PDT, July 15, 2014. His presentation is called Autism: The Past, the Present and the Future and it promises to be both informative and inspirational.
Humphrey believes that many individuals with autism have comorbid medical issues. He started the Autism Treatment Network (ATN), now a part of the non-profit Autism Speaks, with a network of 17 sites at some of the U.S. and Canada's best medical centers, which are dedicated to developing the most effective approach to medical care for children and adolescents affected by autism.
Currently, Humphrey is working to promote the idea that autism and other childhood chronic health conditions that are on the rise may be coming from exposure to toxins in the environment. "This is not just a genetic problem; this is an environmental epidemic," Humphrey said.
In his own supplement company he adopted an unprecedented protocol for purity testing that is unmatched in the nutraceutical industry. Kirkman® tests every raw ingredient in every product it manufacturers for more than 950 environmental contaminants (except in lotions, creams and oils). No other nutraceutical company even comes close to this high standard of purity testing, according to Humphrey. "We need to ensure our customers that the supplements they get from us and take on a daily basis are not adding to their health problems," Humphrey said. He explained that the sources of supplies for raw ingredients for nutraceutical products and pharmaceutical products have shifted to foreign countries. "Nutritional supplement manufacturers can't be sure if their supplements are safe and pure unless they test them for purity but most manufacturers don't, at least not to the degree that Kirkman® does," Humphrey added.
Kirkman® is the leading manufacturer of nutritional supplements for individuals with special sensitivities and dietary requirements. Founded in 1949, Kirkman® is also the oldest nutritional supplement company serving individuals in the special needs community. This experience has allowed Kirkman® to pioneer effective products in many areas of nutritional supplementation for individuals with special health needs and led the company to develop its Ultra Tested® protocol.
