Lee Silsby Introduces Enhansa Curcumin Supplement for Autism
Lee Silsby Compounding Pharmacy, the leader in custom compounded medications for autism, announces its newest product, Enhansa, Enhanced Absorption Curcumin Supplement. Curcumin is the principal curcuminoid found in the popular Indian spice turmeric. Enhansa was created by Lee Silsby Compounding Pharmacy. To date, several hundred patients on the spectrum are using Enhansa. Current product order rates indicate a high level of both patient and physician satisfaction.
Enhansa is clinically proven to increase intracellular Glutathione, reduce levels of nearly every elevated inflammatory cytokine found in autistic patients and improve liver detoxification. In addition, Enhansa acts as an anti-viral and anti-fungal agent and is a potent PPAR Gamma Agonist and NF-Kapp B inhibitor. Patient benefits include improved digestion, detoxification and antioxidant support.
Unlike other commercial curcumin products, Enhansa is free of all heavy metals and is clinically proven to have seven to eight times the absorption rate over standard curcumin extracts. Enhansa is available in 150 mg capsules, 600 mg capsules and powder form. Enhansa is available as an over the counter supplement, and can also be written as a prescription. Some insurances are covering Enhansa.
Lee Silsby Compounding Pharmacy is located in Cleveland, Ohio and includes a FDA approved nutritional supplement production facility, Class 100 certified clean room for preparing sterile products, and state-of-the-art compounding facilities.

Thank you for commenting. We are going to try Enhansa. My daughter has had yeast for years. Hopefully, this will make a big difference.

Annette - wow, that's incredible!! How much does Ryan weigh?? I just ordered ours today and am really looking forward to trying it. I am so tired of the anti-fungal parade which can't even keep up with this yeast!
Karen - thanks for posting all that info!

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how much better our son, Ryan, is doing on your Curcumin (Enhansa). As you know we have been battling yeast/fungus for years. When we first started Curcumin (Enhansa), I ignored your directions of starting at 150mg once every other day thinking, Ryan has been on so many anti-fungals in combinations and at huge doses that there was no way he would need to titrate up. What a die-off reaction, I was very impressed but immediately starting following the directions.
Anyway after Ryan was on 600mg once daily we saw such great improvement both socially, communicatively, and in physical symptoms (coated tongue, anal ring) that we were able to slowly discontinue all of his prescription anti-fungal medications. So there went Lamsil, ketoconazole, fluconazole, itraconazole, and Amphotercin B.
After being on Curcumin (Enhansa) for a few months, I decided to switch to an over-the-counter curcumin product from a great company. However within a month, Ryan’s yeast had flared so bad that we needed to redo the antifungal parade. Once again it was not until I returned to your Curcumin (Enhansa) did I get Ryan’s yeast back under control.
We have a great mom’s group and several of the moms in the group have also found your Curcumin (Enhansa) to be far superior to other curcumin products as well.
So needless to say we are going to remain on it. What I have noticed is that at higher doses like 600mg twice to 3 times daily I see even greater cognitive effects. After several months of playing with his regimen I truly think your Curcumin (Enhansa) is also working as an anti-inflammatory agent. I use it in combination with HBOT and pycnogenol and he is making great gains in all areas.
Thank you again and keep making those wonderful products.

Is it "hide-able" with other supplements to give via oral sryinge? That is my only worry with a curcumin supplement...I'm very excited about this supplement. The folks at Silsby have been telling me about it when I order our other perscriptions.

Sommer, I heard through the grapevine Amy Yasko said that if she was stuck on a deserted island Curcumin would be the one supplement she would take with her.
It's in her protocol.
We opted for her inflammation (Boswellia, Curcumin,Nettle-Puzzle book) trio from the puzzle book over prescriptives to keep neopterins in check.

Is there anyone who has done/is doing the Yasko and/or Houston Homeopathy protocol/s who have tried this and have experience they will share?
Posted by: sommer | November 19, 2008 at 01:49 PM
Curcumin has been a fantastic supplement for us but I didn't realize the full effect until I sprained my ankle. When the Motrin wore off and I refused potent prescriptive pain killers, I opted instead to raid my son's supplement drawer.
Curcumin worked like a charm.
The only problem is it is not well absorbed.
Kudos to LS for taking this a step further.
Sure beats prescriptive anti-inflam options.
Antimutagenic,Anti-inflam,helps curb ammonia,kills yeast, Anti-oxidant.
What's not to love???

Lee Silsby was the very first pharmacy I used when I started biomed for the girls. Talk about your experts... They walked me through so many questions. I'm honored that they wanted to sponsor A of A. They are good people. Plain and simple. Good people.
