Our Mission:

Our goal at ANeustart is to help children with autism reach their full potential. We understand that to help a child reach his full potential, it’s important to give his brain and body nutrients for optimal brain function. However, every child’s nutritional needs are different. By examining the child’s urine, we can figure out what’s best for his body. We examine the urine using at-home tests that identify molecules stemming from our research. According to the urine tests, we provide personalized recommendations for supplementation. By doing so, we expect to improve developmental outcomes for the child. Early intervention with personalized care can make a big difference for thousands of children and their families.

The Urgency:

To develop ANeustart’s product, we need data and a lot of it.
So before the war, we collected 600 questionnaire responses from parents. We also started an important project with Leumit HMO in Israel to collect urine  from 100 children and analyze the compounds inside. This will add to the 100 samples we already collected and analyzed. Once we have the urine analyzed, the compounds in urine can give us information about what the child’s brain is using or losing. The urine data in large numbers of children helps us understand biological patterns in children with autism and link them to the symptoms reported by parents. By combining this information, we can predict and provide specific nutrient recommendations for children worldwide.

Without this key step of collecting big data, our goal to provide personalized solutions for these kids is delayed. Today, we’re asking for your help to raise $15,000 for this project. The whole trial costs around $50,000 (state-of-the-art urine analysis protocol costing $19K alone!), so every contribution matters! With $15,000, we can cover the costs of recruiting participants and collecting urine samples. Your support is crucial!

Funds Allocation:

Every dollar you donate will go directly to the clinical urine collection. None of your contributions will be used for administrative costs. We have already paid for various administrative approvals and insurance fees. Your contribution will be used for the clinical trial per se: doctor fees for recruiting children into the study, a research coordinator to coordinate with parents and shipping of frozen urine samples. These are necessary as part of the rigorous science needed to develop a truly effective autism treatment.

Why Support Us:

We are on to something big. One million brain connections are made every second, enabling a child to learn, play, or socialize. Altered brain development, like in autism, is a symphony running out of sync with a cacophony of various behavioral, metabolic, and biochemical imbalances worsened due to picky eating. One day, parents will be able to affordably check their child’s urine at home and instantly get nutrient recommendations specific to their child’s needs. These will be updated every 2 months based on repeat urine testing. ANeustart aims to shift the standard of care to include treatment for nutrient needs for children diagnosed with autism. Thus optimizing all other therapies in harmony, providing a new way forward for the child. Help us make it a reality!

The Impact:

Your donation can help us gather the big data needed to improve how we manage and treat autism. Our current data looks promising. With extra funding to collect urine from 100 more children, we can improve accuracy and release our product sooner. This means every child can get personalized nutrient recommendations that will improve their quality of life.

The Challenge:

The war in Israel has made fundraising hard. This delay affects funding for our clinical trial, which is vital for our database, accuracy, and product availability. These delays also hinder our ability to reach parents of children with autism in the US and Israel who really need our solution. We need your help more than ever right now.

Join Hands with ANeustart:

This is more than just helping children; it’s about giving them a strong foundation for life. We think every child with autism should have the opportunity to develop their best. Your support today could change a child’s life. With your help, we can empower parents to improve their child’s quality of life.

Conclusion:

Please donate to our campaign today. Every contribution, no matter how small, matters. We appreciate any support you can give. Sharing this campaign with your networks helps us reach more people and gets us closer to our goal. Together, we can empower every parent to make a difference in their child’s life. Thank you for your support. Let’s make a difference together!

Following our nutrient interventions, a four-year-old child asked his mother for more hugs. Please help us expand this impact, and get thousands of parents more hugs!

    Your contribution has led to a parent receiving a voucher for their time participating in the clinical trial. Parents of children with autism are busy, stressed, and worried, and that is a regular Monday. For them to go out of their way to participate, requires a token of appreciation in the form of a voucher. You just made that happen!

  • You gifted TWO parents of child with autism
    6 claimed

    Your contribution enabled us to give vouchers to not ONE but TWO parents for their time participating in the clinical trial. Parents of children with autism are busy, stressed, and worried, and that is a regular Monday. For them to go out of their way to participate, it requires a token of appreciation in the form of a voucher. You just made that happen! TWICE!!

  • Recruiter!
    4 claimed

    Hear ye! Hear ye! Your contribution has allowed the pediatrician to recruit a parent for the study! The medical staff has a hectic routine. It takes them time and effort to convince them to participate and explain everything to parents participating in the trial. Our goal is to recruit 100 children. A new recruit! All made possible due to your contribution!

  • Courier of Chesed
    0 claimed

    In our study, parents collect the first-morning urine of the child, divide it into tubes, and freeze it. Then, the urine is shipped in dry ice to prevent degradation of the molecules within the urine. Your contribution has enabled a urine sample from a dedicated parent whose child was recruited to be shipped on dry ice to ANeustart. You have delivered! Your contribution will help us get answers that will help children with autism get personalized treatment that can change their quality of life.

  • You've got a friend
    4 claimed
